Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: I am working on finding my true self, but I can see that judging others is a huge downfall for me. I have constant comments about their looks, jobs, what they think, how they feel, etc. When I am aware of it, I can sometimes stop the thought, but it’s not enough!

Answer: To one degree or another, all still-sleeping human beings mechanically judge one another for the instantaneous sense of self-superiority that such reactions produce. You must grow weary of letting yourself be defined by negative distinctions set up between yourself and others. Catch this more and more in yourself, and “taste” how badly it does taste to you. Soon you won’t want this kind of food anymore.
