What is the most common thing that you would hear from one person about another? It is a Judgment. People have nothing better to do than to judge. Well, if you really want to judge, the least you can do is to do it the right way.
This pegs another question. Is there a right way and a wrong way? Maybe, may not be. Is there truth and false? Maybe, may not be. Is there good and bad? Maybe, may not be. Does God exist? Maybe, may not be. Reads a little confusing coming from a firm believer, doesn’t it? Well, I’m just trying to prove a point here. PERCEPTION DRIVES THE REALITY. There is no way anyone can prove or disprove the existence of God. All that matters is whether you have faith or not.
If you perceive God, He exists. If you do not perceive Him, He doesn’t exist. In a similar fashion, if we perceive a person to be good, he/she is good. If we perceive the person to be bad, he/she is bad. You cannot judge others because you do not know why he/she has done what he/she has done. There is just one person in the entirety of life who you can judge. It is yourself because you know exactly why you have done what you have done.
Everyone loves stories. So here is a story I just made up for an example.
Two boys Alfred and Byron studied in the same class in school and college. After years, they had grown up, were married and had children. Alfred used to scold his wife everyday whether there was reason or not. Byron used to beat up his wife everyday whether there was reason or not. One day, Alfred had an accident and seriously injured his spine. He became bed-ridden. He suffered a lot in the due course of life. Byron on the other hand lived a happy and peaceful life through out.
The judgment people pass is usually like this – Although Alfred only used to scold his wife everyday and Byron on the other hand used to beat up his wife, Alfred was punished by God and Byron wasn’t. God is not fair.
The judgment God passes is like this – Although Alfred only used to scold his wife, I punished him because his parents had brought him up with ethics and lessons. He used to scold his wife although he was aware he was wrong. Although Byron used to beat his wife up, I didn’t punish him because since he was a boy, he has always seen his father beat up his mother. His mind is programmed that a husband is supposed to beat up his wife. He knows no other way.
Now dear readers, do you really want to pass a judgment or accept God’s judgment? Remember, God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. Do not question his existence or his judgment. Just accept what comes your way because God might not give you what you desire but he definitely gives you what you deserve.
Perceive this way to live in peace.
P.S : This is my perception and hence my reality. I do not claim this to be a universal truth.
