The nature of human intelligence, one of the inherent traits of human intelligence, the natural manifestation of human intelligence is it has to classify and categorize everything. And because the nature of human intelligence is it has to classify and categorize everything, it cannot stop judging. You will not be spared from the judgement of the world – nobody, as much as the world is not spared from your own judgement. Can be your own father, but you cannot stop judging, at any given time, at various levels of your own growth and development.
When you grow into an adult, you judge him as a man. When you become a professional, you judge him as a professional. When you become a husband or wife, you judge him as a husband or wife. Even your own father and your own mother and your… they cannot be free from your judgement. Your husband, your wife and a lifetime together, and because yours is a judging intelligence, it’s not enough that you got married to a good man, that man has to keep proving to you he is good for the rest of his life.
Incident by incident, experience by experience, has to keep proving. She has to continue to keep living up to your judgement. It’s not that one day you decided that she is the greatest blessing of your life and sure enough she is, but it doesn’t end there. Two-three things do not go in your relationship the way you expected, that’s all it takes she can shift from being a blessing to a greatest trouble in your life. So, she has to keep servicing your judgement all the time.
The entire complexity of life, especially in a relationship that is alive and dynamic… you cannot come up with fresh judgement of Krishna, because Krishna is not a dynamic relationship anymore. The attributes are already written, the story is already written, the miracles are already recorded, the mythology is already created around, the stories are already told, you have already formed your judgement and perception, he is nothing to you or something to you, it’s over.
Jesus Christ is done and dusted with. He is your God, or he is the founder of Christianity or he’s a messenger of God or he is a nice man, he is a lover, he is nobody to me… Judgement is already done and over. But, that’s not the case with your children. At 7 and 10 and 12 and 14 and 16 and 18 and 20 and 22, and after they become 50, they still have to live up to the judgement of the parents. You don’t respect me. You could have lived your entire life… There are people sitting here – his father is everything to him, his father is everything, he lived his entire life around his father, Choudhary.
Even after that you’ll have to still in the next incident prove to your father you respect him, you’re never free from it, and it is not something that, it’s not your father problem or my father problem or his mother’s problem or that husband’s problem or this wife’s problem or this son’s problem or that daughter’s problem, the nature of human intelligence which defines you as a human being is it cannot stop classifying and categorizing.
