Judge Others, and You Rob Yourself of Ever Knowing Who They Truly Are | The Wide Awakening with Jennifer Hough

“We think that by assessing others we will be able to predict their behaviors, so we can feel safe. However, it also robs us of ever truly knowing who they are.”

Dear You:

Last Sunday, on Mother’s Day, I was at a lunch with my parents’ friends. I was sitting next to a nice man, and we started talked about beliefs, politics, and what we each do for a living.

Now, he told me he was a conservative. If I had let that govern my opinion of him, we would never have had such a wonderful conversation about ideas, people, how to change the world, and how to end wars. It was delicious.

Pigeon-holing people simply puts them in a box. It will keep you from the curiosity that has you staying young, and loving life.

You just have to decide: “safe in my box,” or “fulfilled on the adventure.”

Love, the perpetual cosmic 3-year-old ~


P.S. We only judge to stay separate and safe… pretty difficult to realize Heaven on Earth from a box; know what I mean?
