In this time of calling journalism, “fake news,” it’s valuable to recognize that truth is the thing that can set us free from our pain and suffering. Let us learn to value truth greatly.
The most valuable spiritual practice that I’ve learned is non-judgment. Non-judgment might also be called compassion. Every time we are upset, every time we are afraid, every time we are annoyed, every time we feel sad or hurt, we are really upset because of our interpretation – because of the meaning we’ve made of it, and the interpretation that we’ve given to things is our opinion, it’s our judgment.
You’ve heard the saying, “The truth will set you free.” Well, the truth is what we really are. We are truth. God is truth. Life is truth. Love is truth. What’s not true is our interpretation. And so, when we are making up another story, we’re going to be upset. I call it the Divine alarm clock. When we’re upset, it’s that Divine alarm clock going off, letting us know we’ve moved into judgment; we’ve moved into opinion, and we’ve left the truth behind. Why would we do that? Because it’s no longer valuable to us. Once we recognize what we’re doing, valuing what is false, we can set it aside and release our attachment to it.
It’s a rigorous practice to give up your opinions and your judgments, but people are amazed at how, in a very short period of time, they can have a lot more Peace. They can literally, just by dropping their own judgments, transform all the relationships they have.
Once they get the hang of this, they realize that they are the focal point of healing in their life. They realize they are powerful – they are not helpless, they are not hopeless, life is not happening to them, and they are not a victim anymore. They are empowered because they can make loving choices instead of judgmental choices. Instead of thinking thoughts of lack and attack, limitation and separation, they can think thoughts of joining together and sharing, being generous and being kind.
It’s a very deep spiritual practice. It’s a trans-denominational spiritual practice, and it’s powerful. I have worked with thousands of people around the world who have transformed their lives so quickly by practicing non-judgment. You can heal your whole life with a dedicated practice of valuing the truth above your interpretations.
Why fight to be right when you know, in your heart, it’s not truth? Relax. Be grateful. Invite the truth into your mind and celebrate your willingness to choose your own liberation, your freedom from the tyranny of the inner tyrant.
