How long can you go without judging yourself or someone else? Judgment is making a comparison between how things or people are, and how we think they ought to be. When we judge we have some dissatisfaction with the way things are, and we have a desire for things to be the way we want them to be.
How do we let go of our need to judge situations, people or circumstances? Here are three steps that help me be aware and let go of judgement.
- Be aware when you pass judgment and notice how you feel. When we judge we assume we know everything.
- We really don’t know everything, and were not in a position to judge.
- Awareness leads to relaxation. Relaxation helps us to be open and compassionate.
The only true measure of life is not to measure it at all, but rather to simply live it fully.
