Do we judge individuals who suffer from eating disorders or depression?
One could argue the above manifestations are distorted perceptions of reality.
Yet when we think narcissistic thoughts or intentionally put others down, we do so through our acquired lenses of perception distorted from the universal norm.
When the ego is challenged or feels threatened, it often over-fires in a manner for self preservation to deflect potential or perceived harm to the individuals ‘identity’. Thus giving validity to the phrase, ‘hurt people hurt’.
An easy presumption towards haters would be that this is a super-compensatory pattern of behaviour, to fill the void of self-imposed feelings of early-life inadequacy.
This itself is the voice of judgement, formed through the eye of the ego.
Judging someone based on something you disagree with or have conflicting views on only mirrors their behaviour.
Anything in life which has an attached meaning is a man-made subjective label based upon opinion.
Judgement is a form of self-imposed suffering. Fueling the constant surveillance of whether we have more or less, better or worse or who’s right or who’s wrong.
Throughout this post, I have removed and purposely withheld elements as this stems from the angle of judgment. This emphasises the importance of the ability to recognise judgement from a subjective perception.
This concept has no finish nor is a skill you can master. It requires consistent attention, focus and energy in a selfless and empathetic form.
Can we overcome our own level of perception to become conscious of from judgement?
Can we disassociate judgement and reality?
Can we dis-empower the subconscious autonomous control?
Can we start living life as an observer, whilst appreciating judgement will always exist?
This paradigm shifting post is the byproduct from networking with like-minded individuals. @kylertraynor and myself meet up every week to contemplate philosophical concepts, plan business and collaborate on bad-ass content like this.
