I decided to take Deepak Chopra’s suggestion and spend the next 24 hours not judging at all, neither good nor bad.
So far, it has been a liberating and calming exercise.
I spent a couple of hours this morning with my aging mom who is often critical of people, situations, anything really. It is not her fault; she was not like that before the dementia set in.
Whenever I had a thought to correct her or comment on her unfair judgement, I reminded myself of my commitment for the day. Magic! I left her 2 hours later feeling light and loving.
Try it out.
