Judgment and Honesty

“I judged myself by my intentions; the world judged me on my actions.”

Anon. (Student then teacher of Strange Classrooms)

 A lot gets spoken about the evils of judging peoples actions, especially by people raised in the Western culture, if one can call it cultured is questionable..

It stems from  the Bible, Matthew 7:1. “Do not judge so that you will not be judged”  As is quite common this verse is taken out of text and then brandished like a hammer. I shall let you work out the reason I say this for yourself. When reading it please remember that further along in the Good Book it DOES mention that we shall ALL be judged in the end.

Revelation 20:11 – 15. “Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

 

But my Strange Classrooms have very little, as I, to do with religion.  This Classroom is more about honesty, firstly with oneself and then others. In my travels I have met a handful of people that do not judge and hundreds that claim not to, even preaching non judgment as they stand in judgment!  Here is where the honesty comes in, the people guilty of this seem to be incapable of a rigorous honesty with themselves, let alone others. Therefore one can safely ignore this type of person as one they can teach you nothing of value, as well as not taking their judgmental, hurtful words to heart.  So, the only way to proceed then is, to first and foremost learn to be honest in your judgment of yourself;  if you do try this, you will find it is one of the hardest most painful things you have done in your life, and it is an ongoing job. From there one can try and find teachers, honest teachers, in Strange Classrooms, in order to proceed further. As I have pointed out, so far in nearly 20 years and thousands of miles, I found only a handful.

An Observation: The Judgmental type also seem to be the type that raise people’s hopes falsely, the same people they  just happen to be judging.

 

A compilation of my Strange Classrooms is soon to be released, please “Like” and  keep an eye on this page.
