Judging someone else is the worst thing anyone can do. Because at a deep level we are all judging our own selves, at every instant. Our own eyes are watching our actions and our Conscience is aware.
If you have read my past posts, the main theme of Life is to repay our debts, get rid of the excess baggage and finally see our true Reality. On this road to Self realization, there is no right and no wrong, everything is possible and doable. The only condition that your actions must satisfy your own Conscience. If your Antaratma, inner self, is satisfied with what you are doing then a part of the debt is considered repaid, karma is balanced out. But if your own conscience raises an objection then your this act gets registered as another item of debt and will have to be repaid in the future. You have created new karmic baggage.
So who are we to judge someone else? And how can we judge them? By social standards? Moral standards? Law? All these terms are a product of the age we live in.
In some other age it was acceptable to fight duels and kill persons who had wronged you. It was possible to carry away someone’s wife and daughter and then marry them. It was considered acceptable to enslave other humans and treat them as animals. It was expected from 14 year old boys to join armies, fight and kill. And even 12 yr old girls got married and had children by the age of 13.
So there is really no point in wasting our energy thinking and judging others. We can never understand why they did what they did. Everyone carries their own judge, jury and prison too, with them. A soul may choose any means possible for the most effective resolution of his karma. Not convinced?
One example is a Sanyasi who has left the society, he has literally taken in the fires of his cremation Agni within him and is doing very intense penances/ tapa for attaining the Self. The society looks on the Sanyasi with a mixture of awe and fear but he does not care about what they think of him. He has chosen this off-beat path for faster resolution of the dual mindset and realising the Non-dual. Man is a social animal. A human staying away from the society either by choice or force is a very drastic step.
And then the other extreme example, a prostitute who lives on the edges of the society. She is considered disreputable and shunned by the “respectable society” but she does not care. She is paying back her karmic debts by sharing her energy with random persons. She does not know what she is doing consciously but her higher self is clear on why it choose this path in this life.
There is no right or wrong, just the personal conscience/ Antaratma. Who can judge you, but you yourself?
There are more examples of such drastic choices. One of my clients is doing quite well on the spiritual path. She came to me because she was worried her in-laws were sending her ill-will. I checked her aura and the horoscope and yes, a rather low level spirit was around her causing minor troubles. But she was sufficiently able to deal with it herself, she had the strength, why come to me? She told me she was rather uneasy, but not able to define why. So I took her through a guided meditation. Then she told me what she saw, in some previous life, she was killed when pregnant and her spirit/ pretatma was used, trapped. She, as a bound spirit, was forced by her master to do such horrible things that she was severely traumatized herself. Her mind had shattered to such an extent during that phase, that she was born insane for a few lives thereafter. In this life, strangely she was scared to even look at insane persons. It was the first time I had seen such a case. In her horoscope too there were indications, I just never even imagined such an interpretation. My client wept and then with that release came understanding and acceptance. Now she is not scared of insane persons and can deal with the spirits carrying her in-law’s ill-will herself. And I have now a new respect for the insane persons on the streets. What could be their history that the soul made such a drastic choice to live with no mind?
I cannot judge anyone for the choices that they make. Especially after seeing such clients and their horoscopes.
What ever one does is between him and his conscience.
I have no words to express my gratitude for you. After reading a few posts, I started getting pointers to some of the questions I had, but did not know where to look for answers. I am retired person 62 yrs and spent my life as average human being i.e. education, job, marriage, children, their education and retirement. Now I want to prepare myself for spiritual journey and your posts are tremendous help. I am a novice in Jyotish and do not understand most of the technical things related to astrology. Now I want to learn basics of Jyotish to make best use of your posts. Your general articles are best guide for me. I want to improve my life through consciousness, puja, jaap, yoga, pranayam etc. Thank you again for being my mentor through your posts.
if you are interested in learning astrology then do do thru this post, you might find something useful..
if you have lived your life till now as per your inner voice/ conscience/ antaratma.. then you are already on a very good point in your spiritual journey..
if you feel drawn to Soham jaap with your breathing, it would be the easiest and most powerful exercise you can do.. try to mentally recite Soham with every breath you take .. it is the easiest and most powerful mantra.. I have written about this in my several posts, do use the index page to locate them ..
other things pl do as per your physical fitness as sitting for long in one posture or doing any aasans may not be advisable if you are doing them for the first time now..
Thank you so much for your guidance and prompt reply. I will certainly go through the suggested posts to build understanding and practice. Regards,
What would you say about having saturn (direct) and sun in 12th in scorpio? I have this combination and since childhood I have felt an active subconscious. I have tried past life regression once but couldn’t enter any lives.
Thank you so much!
There is an underlying frustration with a desire to self-isolate ie keep away from the general society.
You are intelligent, have very unique insights in every life event.
You can separate yourself from your external environment. Eg there may be problems but you are away from them internally. More composed internally.
There will be unexpected changes in your life. Try to reflect on the situations you are in and learn from them always. Deep thinking and contemplation will help you. Yes your sub-conscious is active.
If you hve crossed the age of 36yrs? things will become more understandable after this age.
I do not advocate past life regression. if you are required to know something from the past it will be shown to you at the appropriate time. There is no need to trigger it using hypnosis etc.
Thank you Mam 🙏
I haven’t crossed 36 yet. I have also suffered from sleep paralysis (in teen years/early 20s). One time in sleep, I felt myself rising from my body and taken somewhere and then I was back in body. I also had a dream a couple years back as a premonition (I had just heard about angel guide etc and i just prayed for some guidance in my mind) – I dont know yet the predictions in the dream will come true or not because the time hasn’t come yet. But I have been so confused since then. Reading your articles really helped me understand a lot.
Does it make a difference that both sun and saturn are not malefic for my chart? Sun being 9th lord and saturn 2nd and 3rd.
Thank you 🙏
almost everyone travels astrally .. but its very brief and 99.9% people do not register it.
out of body experience is the same thing, but you are in the awake state when your astral body leaves the physical body.
Thank you for this post.
I am realising that the more I allow things to affect me, the more karma I am generating for myself – and I certainly don’t want that!
So I am trying to let things go and just live with my own Conscience!
