If one isn’t judging a book by its cover, it just may allow for the way things are seen to appear differently and one may be surprised by what’s discovered inside.
We as a people have evolved to mostly judge a book by its cover and the shallowness of this is evident by the state of humanity, not only individuality but also as a collective whole. If this is to ever change, this shallowness will have to be addressed at some point for what it is and one individual at a time will have to get beyond this judging. We have evolved to view things by their surface appearances without looking too much at what’s beneath the surface (the cover). It’s unfortunate, but this has become the default setting of most minds. Without this surface judging one can possibly see beneath it and not get caught up in thinking the cover seen is an end to a means.
Judging has become such a large part of our human makeup that it’s thought to be the way we naturally are, but it isn’t the way we are, it’s the way we have been conditioned to be. What happens when one judges is things are only seen on the surface, and although people say don’t judge a book by its cover, most do the opposite because it’s what’s in place. Also stop the judging of not judging so it can be learned to just be with whatever it is that’s occurring; no labeled attached. All books have a cover but they don’t have to be judged by them and if one isn’t judging a book by its cover, it just may allow for the way things are seen to appear differently and one may be surprised by what’s discovered inside.
