Judgement vs. Judgemental



Question: "Since judging something as good or bad is always biased when viewed through the lens of the conditioned self, does that mean it's better to stop judging altogether? Also, is it even possible to reach a state of non-judgment since it is obviously an extremely difficult task for the average person."

 

Answer:

There is a difference between "making judgment" and "being judgemental" where the first does not imply criticism or praise while the second one does. "Judgment" is essentially part of the cognitive evaluation process, the bias of which will depend (among other factors such as experience, or intellectual capacity), on the level of awakened consciousness and conditioning of the mind. If the conditioning is stronger than the level of awakened consciousness, the cognitive function will depart from the original unbiased path and take the biased conditioned path. In doing so, evaluation without judgment becomes a judgmental opinion that condemns and rejects everything that deviates from the reference values set by the conditioned mind.

 

In cases where a person is under the influence of strong conditioning, pure judgement (the unconditioned self) can be largely blocked and replaced by corrupt judgement (the conditioned self). Therefore, one should fight not against judgement as a cognitive function, but against the conditioning that turns on the autopilot that rigidly follows the programmed path, opposing everything that is not in accordance with the set trajectory. One becomes judgemental.
