Bob Newhart and Jon Munday on How to Stop Judging

I recently attended a seminar in which Jon Mundy spoke.  He said that he is often asked about judgment.  People want to know how to stop judging others.  He reminded us of an old Bob Newhart episode:

So there you have it folks, just stop it.  STOP IT!!  Stop the judging and live in peace. 

By the way, I have always loved Bob Newhart and watched a lot of his shows in reruns.  My sister's first husband's father was the producer for the show.  Bob Newhart's mild  manner reminded me so much of my own dad. 

One day when I was in my early 20's I was on Hilgard Ave adjacent to the UCLA campus where I was waiting at a stop signal. I glanced over at the car idling next to me and saw that it was Bob Newhart.  He had a small child (probably a grand-daughter) in the seat next to him and as I watched he wrapped his arm tenderly around the child and gently bent over intently to listen to whatever the child was saying.  It was a charming moment.
