Point number 2:
Biases and judgments make the mind sick. This is so subtle, yet so behaviour altering! I’ve realised that I’m always carrying a bias around with me, and never approaching each moment in life from a clean slate. Therefore, everything I experience is tainted according to the bias I have at that moment.
“We see things as we are, not as they are.”
When people say “live in the moment”, this is what it means. Bias free and judgment free - just be, and go with the flow of existence, without your biased mind impeding events.
However, I’m yet to discover or decide if a positive bias and positive judgements about people or situations, are harmful for living in the moment like negative ones. Something to test...
