The Judge and Lawyer within

There is a judge within you, who always find defects in others.
There is a lawyer within you, who always defend mistakes of yours.

This is a very very big problem of human beings, we judge everything. We want everything to be the exact way we want them to be. If we stop judging people on the basis of color, religion, living style and profession, more than 70% of the world’s problems would get solved. Have you ever replaced yourself mentally in the place of any other human being? Once try. When you will do so, you will realize how many mistakes we make in this material body. We judge even the minute issues of others and ignore our own gigantic mistakes. This is because there is a Judge and a lawyer within us, who controls our brain, who came into us through the holes created by our own desires.

Everything in universe is made up of atoms. With time, atoms associates with each other and when times comes they dissociate. This is the eternal rule of the universe. We are the souls, which are immaterial and pure in itself, that are given a chance to see the material manifestation of universe. But when we started judging the universe and fellow beings, something called karma associated with us. To break this bond with Karma we wander from one life to another. When we judge others on the basis of different attributes, we further deepen our bond with Karma.

‘Hey, see her skin color. It’s so dark.’
‘Oye, see at his body. He is so thin.’
‘Look at that scar on the moon.’
‘They are so poor.’
‘See, he is 45 and still a worker’
‘He has no sense of humor’
‘Those people are very illeterate.’
‘He is a monk that too in 21st century’
‘He doesn’t have a home of his own.’

We all make judgements, even on unnecesary topics. May be it’s because we want entertainment. But judging others is not entertainment, its spoiling our own peace of mind. How many times we judge others on the basis of material manifestations, knowingly and unknowingly. We cannot accept the fact that someone else is living their life according to their own principles. We want things to be in control. Remember, if you ever get a thought that you want to control others, its not them, its you who is been controlled by your evil mind.

Don’t we all make mistakes? We all do. But instead of accepting them, we blame it on others. We cannot let our ego down. We want a lawyer to defend our mistakes. We all justify our mistakes by making many excuses in our brain. For example, we feel angry on others and then justify it by saying that they deserve it. Anger is like setting a fire, first we burn ourselves and then others. We make many mistakes, we have to learn them and avoid doing them again. We have to accept what comes our way and act according to it, not against it.

We all play video games, don’t we? There are checkpoints in most of those games. Only if we cross them, we get to play our next chance from that point. If we don’t cross them, we have to start playing our next chance from the beginning. We have to overcome these acts of judging others’ defects and defending our own mistakes. They are the real life’s checkpoints. If we overcome them we can start living life peacefully from that point. Else we have to start again from beginning, judge -> make a mistake -> blame it on others -> suffer -> judge more, and this cycle goes on and on. To break this cycle you have to overcome the evil acts of judging others’ defects and defending our own mistakes.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week ahead. Don’t judge this post. 😀
