Are You a Judge and the Jury? By Cherokee Billie

judges-gavel
How many times do you find yourself judging another person? For example you see someone extremely overweight and you judge that person as having no willpower. How do you know what that person has gone through and what extreme willpower they truly have? They may have obstacles in their life that you cannot even imagine and yet you are ready to condemn them. So not only have you become a judge you are also the jury sentencing this person as useless. Why do you think all of the great masters have taught not to be judgmental? Maybe they knew something that you do not.

Look at a teaching by Jesus in which he states, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Think about that for a moment. You are going to be judged equally for every judgment you dish out. This is a spiritual request and you can either follow it or ignore it. The choice is up to you. Just remember eventually all of your judgments will come back to you. This is another version of the law of Karma.

I have been judged many times in my life by others who do not know me, and yet they are ready to pass judgment on my person, thoughts, and spiritual beliefs. One of the lessons I have learned is that the good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.

The teaching of loving others including your enemies comes into play here. You need to change your way of thinking and start making a different set of rules for yourself. To change your Karma Pray for those you do not love or even like, and especially your enemies, because your prayers are going to bless you as well as them.

We are all different peoples, and we are not perfect. This is why we need help from the Divine Spirit because we are not perfect and we will make mistakes. The Divine Spirit loves us even in our most terrible actions. Now if we can just emulate that think of how much the world would change for the better. Let go of judgment and stop being a jury.

FOUR BOYFRIENDS


Once upon a time, there was this girl who had four boyfriends.

She loved the 4th boyfriend the most and adored him with rich robes and treated him to the finest of delicacies. She gave him nothing but the best.

She also loved the 3rd boyfriend very much and was always showing him off to neighboring kingdoms… However, she feared that one day he would leave her for another.

She also loved her 2nd boyfriend. He was her confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with her… Whenever this girl faced a problem, she could confide in him, and he would help her get through the difficult times.

The girls 1st boyfriend was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining her wealth and kingdom. However, she did not love the first boyfriend. Although he loved her deeply, sh e hardly took notice of him.

One day, the girl fell ill and she knew her time was short. She thought of her luxurious life and wondered, I now have four boyfriends with me, but when I die, I’ll be all alone.’

Thus, she asked the 4th boyfriend, I loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?’

‘No way!’ replied the 4th boyfriend, and he walked away without another word..

His answer cut like a sharp knife right into her heart.

The sad girl then asked the 3rd boyfriend, ‘I loved you all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?’

‘No!’ replied the 3rd boyfriend. ‘Life is too good! When you die, I’m going to marry someone else!’

Her heart sank and turned cold.

She then asked the 2nd boyfriend, ‘I have always turned to you for help and you’ve always been there for me.

When I die, will you follow m e and keep me company?’

‘I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!’ replied the 2nd boyfriend. ‘At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave.’

His answer struck her like a bolt of lightning, and the girl was devastated.

Then a voice called out: ‘I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.’

The girl looked up, and there was her 1st boyfriend. He was very skinny as he suffered from malnutrition and neglect.

Greatly grieved, the girl said, ‘I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!

In truth, you have 4 boyfriends in your lives:

Your 4th boyfriend is your body. No matter how much time and effort you lavish in making it look good; it will leave you when you die.

Your 3rd boyfriend is your possessions, status and wealth. When you die, it will all go to others.

Your 2nd boyfriend is your family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for you, the furthest they can stay by you is up to the grave.

And your 1st boyfriend is your Soul which is often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.

However, your Soul is the only thing that will follow you where ever you go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of you that will follow you to the throne of God
And continue with you throughout Eternity.

Thought for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray.

Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.

I hope this touched you!

“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.”
