Judging people

Too often people get judged for things which they have no control over.

Where they are born. Their accent. How they look. Who their parents are. Where they come from.

A great deal of what makes us who we are - were largely predetermined before we were born.

The one big thing we can change is how we think.

Enlightenment is not just a Buddhist concept. Its that moment when we sit down, and think deeply and analyse who we are, what we are, where we are going and how to get there.

Its not easy. But it starts first by avoiding to judge people and instead empathise with them - or at least understand where they are coming from.
