Transcript

Non judging is a very important element of mindfulness practice, in fact, is part of my working definition of mindfulness, which is the awareness that arises through paying attention on purpose in the present moment, non judgmentally.


And the non judgmentally is the real challenge. Because when you start to pay attention to what's on your mind, you're very rapidly discover that we have ideas and opinions about everything, just about everything. And we're always judging things in terms of I like that I don't like that, I want that I don't want that. This is good, that's bad. And it's like, a steady stream of judging, judging, judging, judging, judging.
