Suspend Judgement of Others' Journeys
Ascended Master Djwal Khul
When I was a young man before I attained mastery of my mind and emotions, I was so very tempted to want to intercede in the affairs of others, to want to direct them onto a higher path. I tried this with my brother and I learned a valuable lesson that I wish to share with you today.
My brother was somewhat older than I am and he was a sensitive soul. So sensitive was he that he withdrew from the world and refused to live. He became a shut in, a recluse, a man devoid of hope.
When I first engaged on my path to Mastery, I was the typical know - it all. I thought I knew exactly what my brother needed to snap himself out of his reclusive nature based upon the limited knoweldge that I had gained so far.
So what I did was badger my brother into coming with me to attend festivals and to meet various healers. I was determined to help him to become normal, to become more like the rest of us.
Increastingly, he became more and more hostile and obstinate until one day he lashed out at me with a stick. He started beating me and he drove me out of his hut. He screamed to me to never come back again.
Disconsolate, I asked my Master Teacher what could I do to rectify this situation.
My Master Teacher told me that the best approach is to get out of my brother's way, "He had chosen his path and he is performing his Divine Purpose." Confused at this, I asked him of what possible good could him sequestered in a hut be considered a Divine Purpose.
My Master Teacher then asked, "What lesson did you learn from this incident?" This question was uexpected so I had to think upon it for a few minutes. Eventually the lesson became clear. I replied, "What I learned is that if we interfere in someone's path without thier permission, they will become angry and righlty so."
My Master Teacher offered a smile and said, "To teach you this lesson is your brother's Divine Purpose."
My practical advice for you today is to stay out of the way of your brothers' and sisters' journeys. If they are not asking for help then let them be. No matter how downtrodden they may appear, they are in command of their journey. Only when they approach you and open up about their troubles are you to then only offer help. Even at this moment they may decline the help.
The ways and whys that each of us experience things or take certain paths are mysterious. Two people on the same path rarely have the same motivations. It is impossible to know why a person is where they are at any given moment.
This is why Judging a person or their Journey is such a grave error.
Fix your own house before you try to fix another's.

Persistence is Needed to Become a Kinder Being.
As many grow to adulthood in this rough and tumble world, we pick up and adopt all types of habits which, when looked at with honesty, are self serving and cruel to others. How many times have we thought angry thoughts at others because we don't like how they walk or talk or smell? How many times have we radiated hate because we couldn't get our way?
Is this the type of human being that we really wish to be?
I know that many already think in our minds that we must be this way or else we shall be stepped on, we shall be taken advantage of. We need to be hard and hateful, many say, because we need that to protect ourselves. We turn ourselves into weapons and we strike first lest someone strike at us.
These weapons are not always clear to see. Some use sarcastic humor as a barbed spear. Others use speaking their truth as a way to erect a fortress. Both are still weapons. The irony here that as we created these fortifications, we attract others who delight in attacking such fortifications. We become a target because we have prepared ourselves for battle.
Do you see the madness in this approach?
Mahatma Gandhi saw this madness. A frail man of 120 pounds, he led an entire country to liberation with no weapons.
What if I could show you a way to shed all your weapons and your fears of being attacked and become a nicer person, a more loving person and a person that no one dare attack?
Would you be willing to try this way?
The first thing that you must do in this way of life is to imagine that each and every one of us was born from the same Mother. This is no ordinary Mother. She loves us all without judgement and she lets us do as we please.
Now what do we normally do when we see a long lost brother or sister that we have not seen for years? Our faces light up with a big smile and we hug them like we'll never see them again.
What if you could maintain that feeling for all that you meet? Try it! You will be surprised as to the happiness that you create in yourself and others! This surely is what our Mother would love to see. Imagine her Joy at a world filled with her children each hugging each other with happiness and gratitude.
This is a way of life that calls for persistence, however. Every day you must remind yourself of this fact that we, all of us - even the smelly man sleeping on the street - is our brother or sister.
It requires courage, because some of our brothers and sisters are heavily armed and you may be afraid that they will jab us with a weapon. No one is telling you to go out of your way looking for the most heavily armed brother or sister - but maybe you should give it a try. Maybe that angry looking fellow you just walked by could use a friendly greeting from a brother or sister.
Give a smile. Give a thank you. Bring out your best to all you see. Test out this way and tell us what occurs. We in Heaven would love to spread the good news.
