Judgement

7:51 PM

ਅੰਤਰ ਕੀ ਗਤਿ ਤੁਮ ਹੀ ਜਾਨੀ ਤੁਝ ਹੀ ਪਾਹਿ ਨਿਬੇਰੋ ॥
Anṯar kī gaṯ ṯum hī jānī ṯujẖ hī pāhi nibero.
Only You know the state of my innermost self; You alone can judge me. (pg. 618, GGS)



What makes us think that we know other peoples intentions? Why do we feel to need say someone else is worse then us? Are people that insecure? Sure people can call people into question if they are people of importance, i.e. politicians, religious heads, etc., but to be quick on the gun to judge the questioner shouldn't happen either.

Often people do talk about other peoples actions to degrade them. However, what makes people think they know whats in someone else's heart? People think they can read/hear someone and judge their heart that easily?


In the end it is all about realizing you are the lowest of the low, only then can one make strides towards the Almighty.

As Guru Gobind Singh Ji puts it...

ਹਾਥੀ ਕੀ ਪੁਕਾਰ ਪਲ ਪਾਛੈ ਪਹੁੰਚਤ ਤਾਹਿ ਚੀਟੀ ਕੀ ਚਿੰਘਾਰ ਪਹਿਲੇ ਹੀ ਸੁਨੀਅਤੁ ਹੈਂ ॥੪॥੨੫੬॥
The cry of an elephant reaches Thee after some time, but the trumpet of an ant is heard by Thee before it.4.256 (akal ustatu)


The elephant (one who thinks of himself as big, important, honorable), may yell all he wants, but it is the cry of the ant, (one who seems himself as very small, unimportant, humble), which reaches Him.
