By honoring the divine in all others, and even all things, this allows us to use our discernment instead of judgment. Discernment is a choice. Judgment is a reaction. Judgment rejects the divine in others claiming the divine for ourselves instead. This is often called self-righteousness, or simply righteousness as applied to a group. Even as we might seek to surround ourselves with like-thinking people in our realm of judgment, we are claiming the divine in ourselves and rejecting it in all others outside of the righteous group. We may even reject the divine in all including ourselves by saving the divine for the unseen superpower from our historical teachings, perhaps even claiming all are less than this power, yet claiming righteousness in our alignment with that unseen power as if we are the chosen ones and all others are not worthy of that choice.
