Passing judgement has its own traps.

Catterpillar or Butterfly: Which one?
 
When judging others do you judge from what they were or what they have become?  Remember, you will be judge on what you judge.  Accepting the fact that we are all in the process of changing should end judgements.  If you want someone to understand your point of view, explain it without putting them down for theirs.  You can disagree with someone about something and accept their right to feel as they do.
 
I listened to a lady at the senior center for a while.She had let me know what was wrong with everyone who walked by.  They all greeted her and nodded, yet none stayed to chat.  I wonder if they knew she was saying out loud.
She had been, according to her, unfairly treated by a man so all men got put into the same sack.  She looked at all men as if all were the same.  I asked her if she was like all women.
 
Surprise... she did not think so.  She said she gives everyone a fair shake?  We seldom see ourselves as others see us.I then asked.Do you judge the caterpillar or the butterfly?  Do you consider yourself at the caterpillar stage of your development or are you already a butterfly.  How you see yourself determines a great deal about how you see others.
 
It is okay to consider the character of those you spend time with.  But don't do it because you feel more important them them, less important than them or of a different value.
 
We are all here as part of the whole.  We come in and out of the lives of others as they do us.  We are here to learn and grow.  Always moving forward,
What makes it work is hope. 
 
Wings of hope help us fly above the clouds of human judgement and see clearly how much alike we are.  Enjoy the differences through tolerance and embrace every drop of hope ... for more growth.
 
Judge what you are judging, others see what you judge and judge you accordingly.  What a trap... don't get sucked into it.  Spread your wings of hope.  No matter what stage we are in, we are still growing.
 
God Bless.

Actually, I see myself as a work in progress. I have not yet spread my wings to fly. I do know when I do fly, I will not come this way again. None of us will. We are all seeking the final metamorphous.
