Success Is Without Judgment
“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair… or go into business. You’ve got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.”
— Annie Dillard
Today’s meditation is about learning to let go of negative judgment about others and yourself. When we judge, we are resisting life and blocking the flow of existence. It’s not that we need to pretend there aren’t problems, difficult people, and flaws within our personalities. There certainly are. But if we learn to focus our attention on the positive features that are emerging, then we will be encouraging that unfolding potential, instead of giving more attention to the imperfections and strengthening them.
Being non-judgmental means being your truest self, following your unique path in life while cooperating and working in harmony with the universe. This is the aim of today’s meditation.
CENTERING THOUGHT: I find my success without judging others or myself.
SANSKRIT MANTRA: Karuna Hum
I open my consciousness to universal compassion.
This mantra helps cultivate compassion and acceptance for yourself and others. Karuna means “the pure compassion borne of the knowledge of our absolute connection to everyone.” Namah means “I open my individuality to its true universality.” This mantra opens the heart so you can feel the connection you share with everyone.
