Judging has to be dropped. It is an illness that will never allow you any peace. When you judge, you can never be in the present-you are always comparing, always moving backward or forward, but never here and now. Because the here and now is simply there; it is neither good nor bad. And there is no way to tell whether it is better, because there is nothing with which to compare. It is simply there in all its beauty. But the very idea to evaluate it has something of the ego in it. The ego is a great improver; it lives on improvement. It keeps torturing you:' Improve, improve!' And there is nothing to improve. Whenever a judgment comes, drop it then and there. Drop it. It is a habit. Don’t torture yourself unnecessarily.
Everyday OSHO.
