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. 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. 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 anyone else. Judgments are based on our beliefs. Beliefs are based on individual perceptions, so those beliefs are right for us.
Because we see truth differently, it is wrong when we act as judge and jury on another person’s opinions. If that other person 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 believe what we believe unless they agree with us, or for anyone else to convert or judge us back.
