“The fault is in the blamer. The spirit sees nothing to criticize.” ~ Rumi
We are judgmental. We have become critical about everything. Opinions, blame, taking sides, curse and arguments are part of our daily lives. We see this everywhere. Everything around us takes a shape or form about complaints. The key issue about all this is wanting the world to work a certain way. If it is not our way, we tend to have opinions. We want people, things and relationships to be exactly how we want it. We are so immersed in ourselves most of the time that we tend not to even see the other person’s feelings. Its about us, it is about our ego. We are becoming less and less empathetic towards others and our surroundings. We are finding fault in everything and everyone around us. We have become less and less satisfied with what we have. Most of the time we are outward looking and always trying to find a reason to point outward and pass the blame. We have forgotten to look inwards and many times we might be the reason of the problem or fault. How can we ignore ourselves and only point to others all the time? Where does blame originate? It comes only from our mind. Judgement happens only in the mind. Opinions need logic. Logic needs analysis. Analysis needs right and wrong. All this happens in our mind. Mind controls us most of the time, so the more we are controlled only in logic and finding faults.
Drop all that you know, for everything is immaterial in the plane of the spirit.
When you see everyone around you as just the spirit and the body as a covering – then you do not see the mind. You see fellow souls and equal spirits. We are totally one and the same. Be it a young boy, a little girl, a woman, a man or a withering old body. Everything is the same. Even if you look at the other beings – animals, insects, birds and all known forms – you will realize we are all covered by the body which covers the spirit. Mind rests in the body and if you remove all of this – there is nothing to be opinionated about. There is no reason to logic. There is no memory. There is neither past nor future. We are all one and the same and the minute we see each other as equals – we will never point externally. Pointing to the other becomes meaningless as at that level, as you are pointing at yourself. You are no different from the other. That brings not just compassion, it brings oneness. It brings the humility and nurtures care for each other. There is no ego which can play at that level. You are also equally insignificant as the other. All of us are no different from the universe.
When can you move away from this mind? Mind is the main reason for our judgements. Lets leave it behind. Become a neutral person, there is absolutely no right and wrong in a plane which belongs to the spirit. Drop all that you know, for everything is immaterial in that plane.
