Be your own judge

Judging a person doesn't define who they are, it defines who you are:- Anonymous.

There is a famous idiom that says 'to each his own', which means that each person has the right to make his/her choices.

So then, who are we to say what is right or wrong? It certainly varies from culture to culture and it's usually shaped by the prevailing belief system.

Some people believe that eating non-vegetarian is bad for health and yet some people survive only on non-vegetarian food.

Some say that killing in the name of religion is wrong and yet there are increasing number of wars being fought in name of religion today.

Most of us tend not to like these kinds of contradictions or ambiguities, and yet we also tend not to take time to deeply investigate and clarify the morality of our actions.

So it's easier to believe in the apparent finality of a right and wrong, especially if we are the creator of that finality.

Many of us have been taught to equate being happy with being right, so we are always trying to be right in order to be happy.

For this, we seek to create and rush towards a final point that might deliver a moment of self satisfaction.

But it can only be a moment,and therefore inconclusive, because who has the right to say what is right and what is wrong?

Ultimately, no one, right? So rather then getting into this confusion of right and wrong and passing unnecessary judgments, it's better to go with the natural flow of life.

When we fully see and willingly embrace the perpetual, never endingness of all that is real, we enter the flow and the joy of living, thereby dissolving the desire and fear of all forms.

So let's be natural and not judgmental, that will save us a lot of time and energy. Right?
