As society whirls around, the spear of judgement continually pokes and prods people. People feel judged and adjust their behaviors to avoid negative judgement from other people. People join in the fray and become judges themselves. What is insidious is that it has been going on for generations, and people are no longer consciously aware of this feeding frenzy and cycle. They just do it.

Step back today. Notice all the judgement happing to you and by you. Notice that sizing up and down glance a friend gives you when they first see you. Notice how commercials pass judgement on those who don't partake in their product. Notice your own opinion being offered on how someone else is doing something.

As you observe yourself, consider how ridiculous it is to be worry about what another human being thinks of you. Consider how ridiculous it is for you to offer your own summary judgement.
If you offer glib refrain, "Oh, I don't care what other people think", you probably felt judged by me.


  1. Have you read A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle?

    As Pat Green sings in one of my favorite songs:

    Who's to say and who are you to judge me anyway
    This is my road, I take the corner as fast as I can go
    Who's to say at how I got so lucky anyway
    I am my own at least until the Man come and take me home

  2. @jomamma: I've not read A New Earth, but I do know who Eckhart Tolle is. You're the 5th person to ask us, so clearly there is some matching vibe!

  3. You should give it read. He's big into letting go of the ego and everything that feeds the ego. Judging others feeds the judge's ego.
