Look deep enough into any person and you will find something shining within. ~Haruki Murakami
We judge others by their actions while judging ourselves by our intent. This makes it very easy to cast ourselves righteous and others insufferable, if not downright despicable. In social psychology, it is called the Fundamental Attribution Error.
Actions are surface level, the result of inner machinations, the unseen we judge by our own predilections. A liar will see anyone misspeaking and judge them a liar (which is one reason dRump is always screaming fake news.) A cheat believes winners relied on underhanded activities giving an unfair advantage. The superficial judges others by and only by actions seen. They can’t imagine a rich inner life, perhaps a tormented inner life, wherein exists a light struggling to shine.
We all have a shining internal. For some, it is readily visible, others it is encrusted with layers of pain awaiting a kind soul to help scrape the layers away allowing the light to escape into and bless the world.
