self righteous indignation

The way judgmental behavior acts so concerned is so disconcerting. How intolerent should we be of intolerence?

We must find the middle way.
If judgement makes you sick, don't tolerate it. If it makes you happy, be happy. But if you don't worry too much, it's much better.
How do you ignore judgemental behavior? The best way is not to look up to people. Don't accept authority. At least if you think you know what you are doing. One must take responsibility for ones own behavior.

The line is drawn at actions, that is why the learning by the soul requires the physical action dimensions, 1,2,3,4, the Soul is the other 6 knowing the 4.

Question Authority! Says Who? I've said authoritaianism is obsolete for so long that it was great to hear John Dean blast this administration using that argument in "Conservatives Without Conscience." His (tipping) point is that conservative is going to be a worse word(label) than liberal in no time. The response ability blogging allows us is great - thanks all!

I'm going to skip the politics of this and just let you know how pleased I am that finally I have a meaningful explanation why some people need to know everything. I never made that clever connection that the righteous and judgemental thrive on indignation (though I noticed they always have a subtle way of making me feel inadequate). Now I realize that by wanting to know everything, they eventually uncover happenings that satisfy their need for indignation. Few words spoken, but so much said.

Thank you for your visit and your comment.

Your site here has ignited some deep thought (and blown a few fuses in the process on a Saturday morning).

Interesting thought by imemine about not looking up to people. There will always be those who judge, who are intolerant ... their power does rests in those who look up to them.

We can only take responsibility for our own behavior, and I suppose my wish for nonjudgmentalism could be construed as a judgment in itself.
