What appears to us as truth, is subjective to our own interpretation. It's what we see! How can we know for sure it's the right representation of what is real?
What if our judgment has been clouded by our belief system and misconceived vision of reality? What if we are wrong?
The fact is, no one is able to see the whole picture.
Observing an event and assuming it is a wrongful act may be a lack of understanding caused by distorted thinking. As a result, we tend to take on the role of the judge, jury and executioner.
We are oblivious to the possibility that there's another aspect of reality that we have not considered properly.
We are not to judge and reprimand anyone by displaying cruelty.
To be cruel means to be neglectful as it is against our nature and purpose. We are called to provide a system of support, sharing, caring, elevating, uplifting and being there for one another.
By maintaining self regulation transcending beyond external experiences, we create a positive affect not only on our selves but the world around us.
