We have judgment because we have a “judge.” This judge gets its authority from two places—the past and the future. That’s where it lives. When you come to the present, the judge has no authority at all. In fact, when you come to the present, there is no judge. 

You may say, “I am always in the past and the future—I can’t let go of them just like that. Isn’t there some step I can take?” The answer is yes. Breathe, and come to your body. When you don’t know how to let go of the judge, breathe. Stay with your inhalation and exhalation. It may take a few breaths, but eventually you can let the judge go.
