We live in a time when people want to reduce others down to a single idea. Making it is easy to pass judgment on someone else without considering their whole story. Often judgment is a way for people to avoid looking at their own shortcomings. Is there a piece of themselves in the critique that is too difficult for them to look at? Join us as we explore how we can transcend judgment and move into a more compassionate way of being.

 

In this episode:

  • Divine Spectacle: 
    • We consider that all people live in glass houses in some way, meaning that everyone has flaws and imperfections.
