Judgement is a necessary step towards redemption. In itself judgement is not bad but fruitful, a common sense applied based on experience. Judgement is necessary, being judgmental is not. Judgement is what discerns and presumes the world is made up in such a way that that some things are better than others, that there is a qualitative difference separating what is to be strived for from what is to be overcome. Judgement is liberating because it also presumes that you have a choice among these things on offer and it is also brutally honest and often sugarcoated because it holds you accountable for the choice you make.

Judgement is frowned upon in the ever growing PC egg shell walker saturated public domain in which all is equal, all is neural, all is bland, beige and void of meaning in fear of offending anyone while rights have become a more poignant topic of interest than responsibilities. You cannot ever be judged on some plains – you may never be judged on the things you had no control over, never asked for, had no alternative or were never given the opportunity to know any better, but you can be judged on not taking the chances that were given or not trying, you can be judged on choosing the worse on purpose or for selfish gain, you can be judged on causing harm in any way if you had any doubt that your action might do harm. Don’t be judgmental but judge things to the best of your ability measuring the things around you by moral machinery you’ve erected inside. There doesn’t need to be any formal structure according to which to judge. What is right or wrong, or more or less right or wrong is fairly obvious in most cases, but is often blurred and tainted by desire, greed, reluctance, laziness, fear, envy…

Judgment is here to make you better, to draw the line of where you are and who you are and who you could be. It presents an ideal to be reached, and even if you never reach it is a far nobler use of your time to try than to take the easy way out of proclaiming uniformity and equality of all things. They are not equal. Some things are better than others and the way to redemption for mistakes is to acknowledge that there can be judgement and responsibility. The catch is that you cannot be able to judge before you make some mistakes, but the good things is no one can judge you for making the mistakes before you knew any better, but after you do know better you are responsible for acting or not acting according to what you know. We all search for the divine in the mundane exactly because we know that better is possible, even if perfect is mostly unattainable and unnecessary. If everything is equal nothing – no effort, no skill, no knowledge or growth – makes any sense and is devalued by the uniformity. Don’t judge to feel superior; judge to open new solutions, options and alternatives.
