My meditation practice is to observe what is going on inside me, breath and heartbeats, physical sensations, and also thoughts and emotions. The practice is not to judge or to decide, but when I catch myself judging (or deciding), I just remove myself one step and watch the process of judging (or deciding).
In life as in meditation, I always have the option of adopting the vantage of the witness, watching my own responses. It is a practice that can carry me from beating myself up for what I should have done to being the impartial observer of a struggle within myself. Instead of being consumed in anger, I can watch my anger playing itself out. If I have a difficult decision, rather than try to figure out what I "should" do, I step back and adopt a stance of curiosity: I wonder what I will decide"
