The Quest ....
Whatever I see of you in you
Is but an image of myself,
Because even though my eyes look outwards,
I am continuously searching myself all round.
Short-comings of the other person
As seen by me –
They may be my beliefs
Or may be a proof of my short-sightedness.
How to know that
Someone is proud, jealous .... ?
It may be our doubt.
What is the need of judging others ?
Why bother about others’ short-comings ?
From all that I have seen of myself and others,
Judgments have more to do with the person who judges
Than with the person who is being judged.
Sometimes, the shortcomings or drawbacks
Which we think others have
Are the reflections of
Our own drawbacks in them.
So, whenever, one feels that
The other person lacks so and so,
Instead of worrying about that person,
One should check one’s own self first.
