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.
