Practice Non-judgement – Deepak Chopra
All experience is experienced in a world of meaningful contrasts: good and bad, right and wrong, dark and light, night and day. These contrasts are essential, and life moves within the poles of these opposites. When we accept this, we stop trying to control and judge.
We try not to label everything right or wrong, good or bad, but realise that these are simply two sides of the same coin, both relative to each other. Ceasing from judgment is part of silencing your internal dialogue.
“We try not to label everything right or wrong, good or bad, but realise that these are simply two sides of the same coin…”
I once heard a beautiful prayer that goes:
Today I will judge nothing that occurs
And as I judge nothing that occurs I will create silence in my mid
And as I create silence in my mind I will communicate with the cosmic mind that is running and orchestrating the machinery of the universe
The cosmic mind whispers to us in the silent spaces between our thoughts.
Judgments are so debilitating because they cause turbulence in our internal dialogue and cause heaviness of the heart.
