    Today i learned not from a sufi master, but from a fellow human being and a fellow muslim, I have learned a lesson in my life because i understand i been judgmental. And this video clearly give me the teaching that i needed to hear.

    I have spoken bad about those who are different than my self. And it is wrong when I my self is different and say things i should not do about others. How can I critique you, when i turn around and do wrong my self? I am indifferent to you.

    In the video the person say. Learn from everyone around you. Take what you find to be true to you and leave the rest with the other person.
    But do not judge.

    I believe Ramadan is a good time to be humble and accept our own fault, and ask for forgivness.

    Its an easy thing to fall into. Someone does something that, by all good logic, seems wrong to us, and its hard not to judge.

    I think everyone does it to an extent. Its a habit, but few want to break it. They don't see why they should. I'm trying to, but its difficult. One thing that's helped me is to ask why. Why is so and so being a buttface? Rather than just acknowledging that someone is, and then to declare being a buttface to be wrong, it helps me to understand the actions(even if it isn't what I would have done) if I can understand why.

    This week i have started to ask my self many questions (not in a negative way), question my self, my way of life, the meaning of human life, why i am who i am toward my self and others, how can i change to something better.

    I believe that if or when the answers to this questions araises i might be able to understand my own ego and leave it behind. And i believe to excel spiritually the ego have to go :)

    Some days, I think just to exist in the world and to stay reasonably sane, the ego has to go.

    Interesting.
    I'm quite judgmental.
    I see it as a duty.
    Of course, with great power comes great responsibility.
    So I often temper my judgments when I express them.

    You're less offensive or harsh in your judgements than many.

    Uprooting the hydra-headed ego is indeed a journey.

    Witnessing the ego's shenanigans with an attitude of "neti, neti" (not this, not this) is indeed a real practice.

    It is said that Muhammad (and others) said that we need to "die before we die" which to me is death of the ego.
