To judge or not to judge
October 06, 2014

We are bombarded with opinions from pretty well every direction and of course it is then very hard to stay above the fray and to avoid strong opinions ourselves. Our opinions merge into our values and are normally revealed by the company we keep. And then of course it is only a small step to judging – something or somebody as good or bad, right or wrong, guilty or innocent.

But there is a heavy price to be paid for this rush to judgment. And that is that the more we are comfortable in our judgment, then the less curious we will be and the less effort and time we will make to attempt to understand instead.

Yes truly, judgment is the enemy of understanding and wisdom and at the very least we should be aware when we short-circuit our curiosity and so remain in our judgment comfort zone.
