But what about strangers; people sharing public space with us? Every day we witness all types of different people roaming the streets.
When it comes to people we don't know who dance to a different drummer, some of us can get caught up in the Judgment Game.
I recently asked author and spiritual guru Deepak Chopra the question: What is the difference between opinion and judgment? His answer was simple: Moral self righteousness (I know. Deep, right?)
If you stop to think about it, the line between opinion and judgment can sometimes be blurry at best. I try hard not to judge people but it's a constant exercise in compassion and love out there in the big world of eccentricities. One trip to WallMart I'm busting inside having swallowed so many words. Wait. Did I just make a judgment on WallMart? See what I mean.
So how about you - do you judge? Are you judged?
What about opinions - how watered down does your truth get when pouring from the heart?
