What does it mean? If we observe and get to a conclusion is not that judging? As long as the conclusion drives us to our purpose, it is not judging. We do not put the label on it saying is good or bad. We are looking at that observation and acknowledge it. If it resonates with us it is great, if it does not, does not mean is bad, but it means we have to do something about it, we must change it in a way that will please us. All the things that we consider wrong in our life can be incredible points of reference that move us in the desired direction. From that point of view, they are right, is not that so? Every negative experience makes us appreciate all the positivity that we face during our lives. We could not evolve if we do not experience the negative since we will not be able to point to the positive. That is the primary purpose of the duality in this world.
Using that mechanism, we will advance the path letting things come and go, and that will bring peace and content in our lives.
Observing is an excellent lesson in meditation as well. When we are practicing meditation, and the thoughts come, we do not judge, we observe and let them go. That is the philosophy of an enlightened life. When we experience everything as observers, we can detach from all the events that bring sorrow and unhappiness, and in fact, we can detach from any event. We understand the idea of acceptance, and with that, we can evolve without being stuck in the past or future. We may accept what happened to us or that we are going to die someday in the future. That will simplify the path that we have to follow. Accepting we remove fear which is the root of all misunderstandings and bitterness.
As observers, our lives can be amazing adventures. We can realize the perfection of the world, of the people and any being as a matter of fact. We can watch the night sky in amazement without asserting to ourselves “That is beautiful.” We know is beautiful and all the beauty of the word can seamlessly harmonize with our inner-being when we are the observers.
