Judgement in the path to understanding
Every day is Judgement Day. I woke up this morning ruminating on how judgement plays such a big part of life...my life in particular. Good judgement, bad judgement...and every nuanced opinion and observation in between. Judgement is the blessing and the curse of being human.
Wayne Dyer is credited with saying, "We are the sum total of the choices we have made." That, I beleive, is also true of all the judgements we make every moment of every day. And we are limited by those judgements when it keeps us from seeing the possibility that our judgement might be clouded by the filters of our very personal experiences.
I am thinking maybe I have lost sight of why people have come into my life. Each has something to teach me. Each holds the key to a secret I have been yearning to know. Everyone brings lessons to learn about myself and about life. I know this sounds very grandiose. Perhaps it is. Perhaps there is no meaning behind personal relationships other than making life more bearable. But I don't think that is so. There is more to it.
Watch your judgement. They can come back on you. I know I am watching mine.
