End the Punishment of Proving Others Wrong

posted by Guy Finley

Every human being has degrees of the faults that all other human beings either exhibit or have found ways to mask. This is why we should “love our enemies.” What we see in them reveals us to ourselves as we are, not as we dream ourselves to be. There is a very distinct and equally dark sense of self that is born in any moment where we judge another. The allure of this judgment that we make is hidden in the fact that we couldn’t point out how “wrong” someone is without having first consulted our own unconscious righteousness. And there’s more still. Another aspect of this same dynamic is that we live with a very self-compromising belief that we are beyond reproach, especially from someone seen as being less than ourselves. This horrible condition of our divided consciousness not only keeps us a victim of our own egotistic ignorance, but effectively locks us within the cage of that same consciousness by denying the action of any corrective moment. See all of this and ponder it. The punishment of proving others wrong will end.
