In the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra, the first is the Law of Pure Potentiality. He suggests that one way to access our pure potentiality is by practicing NON-JUDGEMENT. He goes on to say that “Judgement is the constant evaluation of things as right or wrong, good or bad. When you are constantly evaluating, classifying, labeling, analyzing, you create a lot of turbulence in your internal dialogue.”
This really struck a chord with me (and I believe most of us, if we stopped to pay attention to ourselves, would agree we spend a lot of time in judgement…not just of others, but of ourselves as well) so I am working hard on step 3 of putting the law into action, which says “Today, I shall judge nothing that occurs.” I will remind myself often and be aware of the times that I am about to make a judgement.
I challenge you to become aware of how often you find yourself making judgements. Awareness, I have come to understand, is the first step towards improvement. Goes for just about EVERY aspect of life…..Let me know what you become aware of as you set this challenge in motion.
