    So I made a judgement to answer a post that makes no seeming sense, so it's not against the law, at least not yet.

    "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

    And then there's the whole "Original Sin" thing.

      I am not unique in this big_smile
      But how to really understand and implement this - it is another story wink

    knolyourself - It only makes sense if you choose to use the word "law," in a particular way.

      True.

      Actually, I think Jesus gives the best illustration of this:  "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

      So, if you are perfect, feel free, I suppose.

    I think that is what we do without knowing we do it, we judge all the time.  I judged that I like my eggs sunny side up, better then scrambled eggs, but it was nothing personal towards the chicken.  LOL. 

    No seriously, we all judge, but try to do our best to not cause a negitive reaction.  There are a lot of things and people I don't like, and I do judge things according to my thoughts and emotions, good and bad, but I wouldn't say someone who kicked a cow for fun, is better than someone who kicked a cow as an act of hate.  Why???  Because I made a judgement.   

    But I wouldn't hesitate to ask the persons why, because I am pretty sure both had a good reason, but who to say? 

    I understand that not judging is good so that when you mess up too, you wont be judged.  Because how can someone really know a persons true intentions?

    Would we give clones the right to judge if we let them live longer than human parts,I think this touches on the issue,for we are just clones from the God head.

    I still ponder in the possibility that we are a figment of God's imagination.  And we are not real, even thought we feel as real as it can get.  So whatever you think of, will happen.

    This is the expectation?

    We should place no judgment upon others, only accept them in a state of loving kindness and compassion.

    However, as Misha said it can be difficult to maintain this philosophy every moment of everyday. (Although it does become easier with practice and effort.) big_smile

    And so we should not judge ourselves either for our shortcomings or mistakes. Simply acknowledge them and move on. (Apologizing if necessary.)

    Judgment comes from our ego and ego is the "demon" inside us all. wink

    This is my humble belief.

      Exactly!  When a person comes to as much knowledge as your mind is possible of concieving, and you realize the whole lotta mess and suffering.  The only thing left to do is forget it.  To let go.

      Just the same as giving into God.

    Yep, letting go is the ultimate answer to most questions. Lol.

    It is our attachments that cause us pain and suffering. smile

    So I cast pain and suffering on the riverside,and I just pray no-one walks over it.

      If you have cast it away, what difference does it make? It only matters if you are actually clinging on to it and have not really cast it away.

        Wow, this is all so profound.

        I agree in general I guess (to the degree that I understand what is being said, which maybe isn't that great a degree!), but I am reminded of a friend who liked to say,

        "You can either stand for something, or fall for anything."

        We all make judgments. Deciding not to judge is itself a judgment. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but if they are, I don't know, roasting puppies and shooting their neighbors I'm not one to offer a big hug, I'm more likely to say, what a bunch of a**holes.

        That's why I'm not spiritually evolved. No raw material here. smile

    LOL That's why I'm saying it is really hard to implement. But I definitely became much more tolerant since I decided to go this route.
