May I be judicious instead of judgemental

Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods. Einstein

To judge is to compare One thing with another Based on a single facet Of innumerable complexities

To judge things as good or bad Is not to reject unpleasant things But to bring them into existence For, it is the moment of choosing That creates the momentum of denial Cascading across innumerable linked entities And tracing a pattern of denial across a life

For it is common nature To take up prejudices Without due justification And to feed on only those things That justify the prejudice

But judging and dismissing inconvenient truths Suppresses their vital insights Into what is going on without And going wrong within

What is needed of you is to Suspend your judgement—the epoché Of all things seen and unseen

To no longer fear your fear Rage against your anger Despair about your loneliness But to accord all things with dignity due For they only ask to be acknowledged by you And returned back to their source
