The personal bond of one’s faith becomes the wall which provides the greatest hindrance in achieving unity among people; we’re taught something which provides us with the parameters of our moral understanding and then told that to challenge those boundaries means we will experience suffering to untold degree; this scares people from wanting to know more, it teaches them that being different means being wrong and that those who are “wrong” deserve less compassion or concern than others.
This is how judgment becomes fortified into our system, everybody searches for someone to blame, somebody to be at fault for the experience of their suffering; if nobody can be found to take that blame, then that means we would have to take responsibility for our own suffering. People become engaged in lifetime pursuits of distraction and avoidance to escape the realization of their own culpability, they search for justification and reasoning, trying to figure out why bad things happen, they follow their dogmas and repeat the cyclic rituals of their faith.
In these pursuits people become fearful of exposing their own flawed existence for others to see; they take part in their rituals to provide an external image of righteousness while on the inside they crumble apart from their fears that the inner truth of their life may become exposed; this forms a duality of perception which further fuels their sense of judgment by allowing the mind to project their own suppressed faults and failing on the people that surround them.
Only once one can truly accept themselves can they look at the world without judgment, and only once one can look at the world without judgment can they truly contemplate God.
