PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 29th, 2014 by Donald Altman in THE MINDFULNESS CODE

“Being judgmental is not the same as being discriminating and discerning and not the same as evaluating and analyzing in order to arrive at a decision or to make comparisons. A judgmental mind can be a dangerous thing. It gets stuck in a personal and limited perspective of I-me-mine. Holding people to black-and-white standards leaves little allowance for the quirks that make us who we are. In contrast, a joyful and compassionate mind invites hope and makes life bearable. An innate joy that lives in all of us wants to break out of its seed of separateness and aloneness. The joyful mind is not obsessed with winning or needing to be right. It is more interested in sharing joy and being connected. The compassionate mind reaps joy by giving and spreading joy, even in unlikely and unexpected places.”

Donald Altman, in “The Mindfulness Code”
