Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 147: Judgements Part 1: Are They Always Bad?

Not being judgmental does not mean not using common sense to speak up or act honestly when we see people we care about or people we serve doing things that are contrary to living at peace, in harmony with life.  Syd says “a non-judgmental mind is a mind at peace.”  That refers to things like personal judgments — resentments, attitudes towards certain types of people or negativity, things that carry a bad feeling.  But, for example, if you know someone you love is using dangerous drugs, the loving thing to do is to exercise your judgment that you will not encourage drug use or overlook it.  It would make no sense to support the person’s drug use to avoid looking judgmental.
