You can attain Divinity only when you stop hiding your mistakes and highlighting the faults of others. It is a great sin to search for others’ faults. Instead, look for your own. Consider your smallest defect as a great blunder and try to rectify the same. Ignore the faults in others however big they may be. Do not criticise others; instead criticise and question yourself–is this the way I should behave, having been born as a human being? True spiritual practice lies in finding out your own mistakes and correcting them.
Today, the people who seek the faults of others are on the rise. This is the cause for restlessness in society. All those who aspire to be peaceful should eradicate all their defects, which involves giving up evil tendencies and developing noble traits. Only then can you realise Divinity.
Love all. Salute even those who criticise you because Divinity is present in all. Do not give scope for anger and spoil your mind. Pray to God with love.
Do not judge others, so that God will not judge you,
for God will judge you in the same way as you judge others and
he will apply to you the same rules you apply to others.
Why, then do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, and pay no attention to the log in your own eye?
(The Bible, Mathew 7:1)
