Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration
The focus for today: I choose to be aware of the judgments I make.
When we accept things the way they are (accept what is), we feel more at peace with the world around us. The weather is neither good nor bad -- it simply is what it is. Your opinion or beliefs are not good or bad, they simply are what they are -- possibly even the opposite of mine.
And that does not mean that one of us is right and the other wrong. It simply means we see things from two different perspectives. If my favorite color is blue and yours is red, does that make one of us right and the other wrong?
Let's play at eliminating some words from our vocabulary (or at least from our concepts.) Ask your mind to alert you each time you catalog something as good or bad, right or wrong, etc. You might be surprised at how often we evaluate and judge things as acceptable or not acceptable. It's a mind opening experience in itself to simply be aware of the judgments we have been making. And that's not good or bad -- it simply is!
