Re: Theos-World Quote of the day, oct. 26 and it's all Bill's fault

Good quote, Chuck.

It is my direct experience that judging the higher self awareness (spirituality) of another is an activity one often zealously embraces in an effort to avoid looking at the quality of one's own spirituality. Hence moral judgments and condemnations are almost always aimed outward at another instead of being absorbed inward upon oneself in communion with one's higher self. Nietzsche is no exception to this phenomenon which evidences itself daily here on theos-talk. We are participating witnesses to a daily barrage of disparaging comments and judgements by one person upon the character, motivations, higher self awareness, and overall theosophical fitness of another. If, but for one day, that person who would judge another so absolutely would instead absorb those thought forms into their own consciousness rather than releasing them into our theos-talk community, we and they would become less adversarial towards each other and this meeting place would become a haven for seekers, rather than a den for those who are convinced that they already know everything worth knowing.

I am reminded of this passage from Matthew 7 KJV

"1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."

peace within,
