Embrace Judgment #119

Embracing anything is the act  of understanding and observing a social and psychological act in our interactions with ourselves and each other.  This is clear, but often we don't want our image to reflect that of "Judgment".  Have you noticed how quickly one reacts in defense of themselves?  Generally, we hear, "I don't judge anyone for doing this or that."  "I didn't judge you--I don't care what others do."  Etc.  Yes, we've all said this at some time or another, and still the question is never asked in the exchange.  Is it?  Do you ask "What is judgment?" as your reply to the allegation?  Why not?  It seems like such an obvious thing to inquire about.  If we don't know something, shouldn't we simply ask?  Of course, but in that moment we don't because we think we already do based on the reassurance of our position, image, knowledge or basic understanding of what 'judgment' is.  Yes?  We don't ask when we think we already know.  Simple.  But rationally, we don't know because 'judgment' isn't a piece of information or gesture in a script--first information is fragmented as is the scripture, but judgment is an act and requires two entities to exist. 
Isn't it obvious if socially you've never been asked to even open the discussion--instead we relay on the assumption that we know and only because no one asks.  We'll I'm asking you to consider the following; we all judge because it is simply the act of comparing.  Take this simple test; there are two bowls of white granules, one is sugar the other salt.  Now how would you know one from the other without comparison? You must taste each to compare and come to conclusion which is the outcome or judgment.  We can't just taste from one bowl and say the other must be the other because then we are assuming an outcome, therefore, both must be tried.  Isn't that what's taking place when we compare or judge one thing to another--people in this case?  Lets say you hear something that triggers, "I didn't judge you" but were you aware of the comparison taking place in that instance?  If not, then you were judging but failed to recognize the simple act of comparison.  Because without comparing...how do we come to conclusion?  Embrace it because it is there embracing your every thought.
