Too often and too quickly we rush to judge, decide, and label an event as soon as it happens. Of the four religions/philosophies I have spent time studying, all of them caution against this rush to judgement. I was guilty of it myself this week, and it reminded me of one of my favorite Buddhist/Taoist fables.
It’s tempting to pass immediate judgement on an event, and in reality (as opposed to a fable) rare will be the occasion you will be grateful for a broken leg. But if you practice not passing judgement on the little things, when the big things do occur you will have already developed a broader perspective through which to view the event.
