I dunno about this one, Alan. The "loss of interest" implies that judging is more of an intended action, rather than automatic compulsion.

To me, we can be at peace, simply observing our judgmentalness and working through it. 

Loss of ability to worry?  Again, we can observe our worry, and the worry dissipates, or sometimes it takes more.  To me, inner peace means being at peace with our emotions.  They happen.  It's all okay.

I had forgotten about these.  A couple of them had me scratching my head, too, before I decided to post them.

I can see how a "loss of interest" in judging does not imply complete elimination of judging.  Why might I have interest?  Because my ego needs it.  I'm probably getting a trigger from one of my false self energy centers:  power/control, affection/esteem, and security/comfort.  If any of these are threatened, they become like part of that personal rule book you guys talk about -- something that attacks you in these energy centers is going to trigger your ego to do something -- and that something just might be to judge.


As far as ability to worry, it's one of those things Jesus challenged us to do -- not to worry.  For, Jesus asks, what evolutionary purpose is served (add a day to your life) by worrying?  So I think His point is that worrying must be optional, or He wouldn't ask us not to do it.  I'm not saying we can live without fear of danger; I consider "worry" as a different thing.  So I'm thinking at this time, that if I say, "I fear I may get hurt tomorrow; I must plan to reduce my risk," then I see that as entirely healthy, and not "worrying" in the problematic sense.  When it becomes, "oh my gosh I'm so afraid I can hardly concentrate, I wish this didn't have to happen, I'd give anything to not be here right now, I'm so not looking forward to this," then I don't see those as serving any useful purpose.  So maybe I'm thinking of the word "worrying" in a narrower context.

An interesting outlook on incarceration. Certainly not appropriate for all cases but we do spend an awful lot of money putting people in jail when other alternatives might be far more beneficial and cost-effective.

In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue, but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing. -- Mark Twain

Amen to that Daizies! Some of my closest friends in the world are people I have never physically met, or have only met once.
