Compassion is Judgment’s Cure – Day 145 of 365 Days to a Better You

Judgment negates compassion. Compassion cures judgment.

Good Saturday, my friends. My apologies for the late post today. Compassion and judgment are like matter and anti-matter. They utterly destroy each other on contact. Judging less automatically raises your compassion. Judging more utterly destroys your compassion. It’s a zero sum game.

Power Hack: When you catch yourself judging yourself, other people, other groups of people, you’re literally destroying your ability to be more compassionate. Conversely, you can eliminate judgment by simply allowing yourself to feel more compassion toward anyone or anything.

They key in this equation is greater awareness. Consciously cultivate your sense of compassion for the world around you and your judgment will decrease. Consciously choose not to judge when you feel like judging and watch your compassion increase.

Here are five fantastic compassion quotes to inspire you to make compassion the great work of your life.

  1. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Sharon Salzburg
  2. I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. ~Lao Tzu
  3. Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. ~Albert Einstein
  4. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Dalai Lama
  5. If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. ~Suzan Lori-Parks

Compassion, my friends, is ALWAYS in fashion!

I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
