Of all the wondrous array of thoughts that are possible, negative
 judgments about ourselves and others are one of the mind’s compulsive
 obsessions. It’s as if the human brain has a hyperactive gland that secretes
 judgments, just like the adrenal gland secretes adrenaline. Negative and
 reactive judgments can arise instantaneously and in regard to almost anything. 
Sometimes they focus almost exclusively on you, and sometimes almost 
exclusively on others.
