ABOUT THE VIDEO
_
In this video, I talk about Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov, judgment, and learning.

In The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky wrote, “Remember especially that you cannot be the judge of anyone. For there can be no judge of a criminal on earth until the judge knows that he, too, is a criminal, exactly the same as the one who stands before him, and that he is perhaps most guilty of all for the crime of the one standing before him. When he understands this, then he will be able to be a judge. However mad that may seem, it is true. For if I myself were righteous, perhaps there would be no criminal standing before me now. If you are able to take upon yourself the crime of the criminal who stands before you and whom you are judging in your heart, do so at once, and suffer for him yourself, and let him go without reproach.” And Dostoevsky’s character is saying something pretty powerful here: that by freeing your mind of judgment, you can create a better world.

But how does a mind free of judgment lead to a better world? The key to creating a better world is correction: we have to be able to correct our mistakes. And the only way to correct our mistakes is through learning, and only a mind free of judgment is capable of endless learning.

But how do you free your mind from judgment? By dropping your desire for certainty.

So how do you drop the desire for certainty? It happens naturally when you see that certainty is impossible.

So if you see the lie behind certainty, you’ll drop your desire for it. You’ll be OK with living in uncertainty. And if you drop the desire for certainty, you’ll free yourself of judgment. And if you free yourself of judgment, if you stop letting others judge you, if you stop judging yourself and others, you’ll enter a space of endless learning. And through endless learning, you can correct your errors, and by correcting your errors, you can create a better world.
