Episode 148: Judgements Part 2: When Judgement Is Discernment

Discernment is not judgement.  We can speak up if we see a friend heading down a dangerous path, or if we notice a client shading the truth, etc.  The difference between the negativity of “judgement” and exercising our common sense with good will and a loving feeling is the difference between harboring negative opinions and speaking from wisdom when we see something of concern.  It would not be an act of love or a responsible service to others to fail to reprimand a child for stealing, or try to stop a friend from entering a bad deal.  As long as we are coming from a good feeling and sincerity, we should be true to wisdom and be able to express concerns without harm to others.
