Living the Dream without Judging

“There ought to be a law against that,” I often find myself saying. People do things that harm, hurt, or hinder other people and I, for one, often feel that it’s my job to point this out.

Having such a judgmental attitude does not make me a lot of friends. If fact, no one wants to be around someone who is usually snide, sarcastic and snarky. (Snarky is my new favorite word). Living the dream means to be free to enjoy life without the oppression of having to heap weight and worry onto the shoulders of others.

Have you ever been passed by another car at 90 mph, when you yourself are going 55 in a 45 zone?

What about getting behind one of those silly RVs who has a string of cars lined up behind it? There is actually a law in Colorado that says that you should pull over when you are slowing down 5 or more other vehicles. So, should the sheriff chase down and give a citation to such a driver? I’ve never seen that happen, and frankly the men in blue have better things to do.

I’m not sure who said this first, but here is a useful saying: “Don’t judge a person because they sin differently than you.”

Of course, there needs to be justice. We would not be able to live in freedom without it. Yet leave the baggage of being upset about other people behind. Don’t carry it with you. Travel light. You can’t change other people anyway. The only person you can ever change is yourself. Judging another person does not define who they are. It defines who you are.

When you point your finger, three other fingers are pointing back at you.
