That is, are you acting asprosecutor, judge, and jury for your fellow humans? Do youevaluate the actions and behaviors of your loved ones,reminding them even silently that theyre doing things the"wrong" way? I thought my courtroom was closed, but I wasfooled by my mind.I thought I had ceased judging behaviors of others as rightor wrong, but found that I had simply masked the judgments;I covered them up with self-righteous thinking. Avoidingjudgment is difficult, a big shift of behavior for many ofus. I succeeded, for the most part, in avoiding verbalizingmy judgments, but the internal judging continued, and thatself-righteous energy transmits to others just as stronglyas words.So now Ive renewed my commitment to myself to avoid judgingothers for what they say, how they say it, and theirresulting actions. Why? Judging others is hard work. Judgingothers is not only hard in terms of effort, it adverselyaffects ones state of being. The next time you findyourself judging some behavior as right or wrong, stop andtake an inventory of your feelings. I think youll findfeelings of tension, defensiveness, superiority, andseparation. I think youll observe your mind at workprosecuting the offense and handing out punishments. Focuson your body. I think youll notice taut muscles, grimfeatures, and aggressive positioning. Is this what you wantfor yourself? I dont, yet thats the result of judging.When you accept what others say and do, without judgment orevaluation, youll be more peaceful and calm. Youll be ableto observe what is without concern or ownership. Youll nolonger have to defend your judgment, prosecute yourposition, and justify your punishment. Life will be easier.Now, that doesnt mean I cant work to change what isshowing up. If it doesnt serve me, I will work to changeit. But, that is best done without assigning good or bad tothe situation. By fully accepting what shows up as theperfect situation for right now I have more power to changeit. Since I have embraced it, it is fully within me, andthose things I can change. Thats my commitment, knowingfull well that God will soon send me ample opportunity toexperience my declared state of being. Im looking forwardto it. If you choose to join me, prime yourself to watchyour thinking. Be aware of the judgments you make thatsomething is good or bad, right or wrong. Observe your bodyand your feelings--tension and irritation are sure signsthat your courtroom is in session. Maybe its time toadjourn.
