Judgment & Contractions

Over the last few days, I have had an opportunity to explore judgment and contractions.

When there is a judgment, there is an identification with a particular thought, idea, view and position.

From the wide field of what is - all phenomena arising in the present and unfolding within awareness, there is an identification with only a small part of all this, a particular idea, and this is naturally experienced as a contraction and as rigid and exclusive. It sets up an I-Other dynamic within this field, with all that brings with it.

Now, there is a position, view and story to defend - with corresponding fear, frustration, anxiety and so on. And there is also a sense of alienation and seperation. All this brings the potential for a great deal of suffering.
