Judgment & spirituality

Being spiritual, I have never tried to make anyone believe what I believe, or judged someone for what they believe. It’s simply not my way.

I believe that as individuals we evolve as we grow emotionally, physically and spiritually day-by-day. What we are today is not what we will be tomorrow. Every soul has a spirit. I also believe we can all be on our private path to spiritual awareness, knowledge and insight, although subconsciously most of us are not aware that we are and which is why we play things out differently.

For those of us who spend our lives judging other people, we do so because we are less aware of our own spiritual path and values. Deciding for someone else can never be the right or best path for our spiritual journey. This is what I believe. As we get to live our life, we begin to form our own beliefs and judgments.

Those beliefs are an interpretation of our experiences and therefore wouldn’t be right for someone else. Judgments are based on our beliefs. Beliefs are based on individual perceptions, so those beliefs will be right for us, but can never be right for someone else.

As we see truth differently, it becomes wrong when we act as judge and jury on another person’s opinions. Of course, if that other is happy to believe what we tell them, then our belief and judgment will always be accepted.

It is never for us to try to convert anyone else to what we believe, or for anyone else to convert or judge us back.

  1. I believe that it really doesn’t do any good for us to judge people, since we usually don’t know the whole story.

    I grew up in a very judgmental world and it didn’t do any more than serve to keep me apart from the rest of the world.

    I’m trying to do things differently now so my life will turn out much better.

    1. You’re right, some of us don’t always know the full story and yet we’re quick to judge or offer an opinion which comes across as being judgmental.

      When we’re being judged all the time it tends to have a tendency to shy away from the people who are judging us.

      I am pleased you are trying to work things out now for yourself so that your life is different from the world you grew up in.

  2. I have my beliefs and they are strong. I had someone once tell me that God would not help me. I think that is my belief and not theirs to judge.

    I agree with you. We shouldn’t judge others and also we shouldn’t think that our belief is the only way.

    1. Agreed. It is not for us to judge or be judged, whether it’s a judgment based on an opinion to do with our beliefs or something else.

  3. I think that people being open and tolerant of other people’s spirituality is important.

    My parents are two different religions and they never made my sister or I chose one over another. I think it’s important people have their own take on things and decide for themselves what they feel is right for them.
