The perennial nagger

 

 

His characteristics:
He knows everything better
Criticizes everything
Knows an answer to all questions
Speaks ill of others
To take a bath in the limelight
His hobbies:
He judges and condemns

Spares himself
Without nagging
Because he is not aware
Of himself and his doings

May he find the road of life
In humbleness and respect…

Making decisions

Between good and bad
There is a small bridge
It is our choice
Which way we take

Sometimes we do not know
If good is bad
And bad is good
We may decide wrongly

We are convinced our side is correct
Are not really weighing pros and contras
Does my decision only help me
Or does it help others or both

Injustice cannot be justified by silence
For silence means consent
Do we condemn when we speak the truth
If thereby enlightenment is procured?

To be accused of condemnation
Is it a tool of defense, of attack
To oppose the truth
To refuse to believe it?

Sometimes we have to decide
Even if the mind is hurt
But the soul remains untouched
Only pride feels hurt

Between good and bad
There is a small bridge
It is our choice
Which way we take…

Pigeonhole thinking

When a person is seen as bad
Then even his good deeds
Are judged, condemned within this framework

Pigeonhole thinking…

A wrong picture

We criticize people
Although we do not have the eyes
The head and the heart
Of those being criticized
Cannot follow their traces
What makes them what they are

Criticizing others is only an attack
To hide our own shortcomings
That we ourselves are vulnerable

Justified judging – mission impossible

 

 

Justice and injustice
Are subject to sympathy and antipathy

To be without prejudice
When judging a man
Is not possible
Because we are not within the
Causal effects and causes
Of a person we judge and condemn
As we do not live the life
What another man lives

We have only
The tiny life excerpt
of one we judge
Not his overall view

However, we judge and condemn
As if we knew – everything
about that man

Why?…

Smiling Unfriendliness

 

 

Some people are friendly on the outside
They carry a double-edged sword:
As long as everything runs their way
They remain kind and gentle
However, if their principles are compromised
They start punishing you, condemning you
Behind their backs
With a smile on the corners of their mouths
Of their forked tongue
They excuse their behavior with the argument:
“We remained friendly to the end…”

Don’t make a mountain out of a molehill

 

Humans easily condemn
Use smaller mistakes
To make a mountain out of a molehill:
To turn a man into a bad guy
To put him into the drawer
For good
To dress him
With prejudices

Shouldn’t we all
See our own mistakes
Instead of others?
