Actions Louder Than Thought
How many times in a week do we think to ourselves about the judgments we've made upon another? Could you honestly say that you can maybe think of at least one recent occasion? Would it be rather fair to say, we all do it?.. Yet, Philosophy, Religion and Society teach us that judgement although is wrong is something we as people have begun to adapt to within our everyday lives. Judgements often take us towards that moment of self recognition and self awareness, even if for a moment, for if when we judge another do we not look within ourselves for that fleeting moment, comparing ourselves towards the same judgement that we've just made.
Right or Wrong?
If we philosophise about the reasoning of Judgement then maybe within we can be pulled towards our own self recognition, within the same thought process.
To best learn about judgement itself, a little technique that has been around since before the time of Aristotle is one of inner silence. First learn to become a silent judge whilst acknowledging the reasoning behind each individual judgement, and ask yourself "Is this reasoning fair and without anger, hatred or assumption". Can I place myself within anothers perception? Can I possibly understand that the one I judge could be me? Enjoy the journey towards self discovery.
What We Learn.
In reality a little push in an alternate direction in life can change the best of people into a different emotional viewpoint. We are best to acknowledge that all should not be so harshly judged in the everyday. Yes, keeping informed and being passionate is all good and well but should we at best always try to stay balanced and almost passionate in a positive way when it comes to benefit from learning the truths which life has to offer us. What if our judgements control ones perception which in turn directs our future together. Do we choose harmony in understanding or do we stand ignorant within negative judgements or hatred when it can take us away from our own path of peace and awareness?
