Love is the absence of judgment. ― Dalai Lama XIV
I want you to take a moment to close your eyes and take a deep breath. Allow yourself to settle into the space you are in. Once you feel settled, think back to the beginning of your day.
How many judgments have you made since rising out of bed this morning?
There's no need to be ashamed, or embarrassed. We all do it. Just think about it.
It might have been when you got dressed - you made judgments about how your body looked in the mirror. Or maybe it was driving to work when the car next to you cut you off.
Judgments are live in minds and thoughts everyday. They crowd our ever waking moment.
Do they feel good - mostly not. Why is this? Because judgments are an extension of the ego. They are also a version of mental-clutter.
Judgments tell us when something is good, when it's bad and they define our experiences which can be incredibly limiting.
I want to invite you today, to take notice of yourself and write down each time you make a judgment, of yourself, of others, of an experience - any and every judgment that occurs to you.
This isn't to make you "wrong" for what you are doing - that in itself would be a judgment.
This is an exercise in becoming more self-aware.
The more judgment we can clear from our minds, the more we can fill those spaces with love.
In my upcoming 5 week tele-course, Creating Transformation, we'll be working in depth to clear judgment, amongst other things, from our minds and lives. It's going to be a very empowering experience for us all. To get updates on course info subscribe here.
