June 20--Let's Not Be So Nosey

The purpose of our life needs to be positive. We weren't born with the purpose of causing trouble, harming others. For our life to be of value... we must develop basic good human qualities--warmth, kindness, compassion. Then our life becomes meaningful and more peaceful--happier.  --Dalai Lama XIV

    The Dalai Lama spoke wisely there. 
    One thing I've been noticing lately is judgmentalism and nosing into other people's business. Seeing this in others makes me realize that I, too, am practicing it, more than I care for. I much prefer the "live and let live" mode of operating. We don't know another's life story or what motivates them to do what they do. A spiritual mentor once encouraged us to look on another's behavior with an "Isn't that interesting?" attitude, and let it go. This is likewise a good practice to use on our own actions. 
    We can't be warm, kind and compassionate if we are being nosey and judgmental.
