Are you judgmental? Be honest. Because frankly, I’m pretty sure we all are. Some more than others.
What makes judgment more apparent in some people is whether or not they voice it, but there are plenty of us who have judgments constantly running through our minds but just keep it to ourselves.
The problem is, our judgments don’t just create suffering for other people. Our judgments create the most suffering within ourselves, whether we’re judging ourselves or our own past harshly, or we’re holding people and the world around us to standards they will never meet.
Our judgments basically ensure that we will feel disappointed. That we’ll feel disconnected. That we won’t fully appreciate a moment for what it is or a person for who she is.
And so the goal is total acceptance. That doesn’t mean condoning things that hurt people. But it does mean trusting the process.
Because it’s our resistance to what is that creates our suffering. Always. There will still be pain. But the suffering is a choice.
And I know, easier said than done. So how do we get there, exactly?
That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Greg Hammer, MD. He is a Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, pediatric intensive care physician, pediatric anesthesiologist, mindfulness expert, and the author of GAIN without Pain. He is also a health enthusiast and meditator, utilizing a non-duality and mindfulness-based approach to care.
