the judgment game
Each day it seems someone else is “called out publicly”; an old tape/recording found of something said, something done, something or someone harmed, ridiculed, insulted or infringed upon.
What this feels like now is a game. It is one in which none are left playing in the end. The final round is where we find ourselves.
We began in a circle. It was easy then, and clear. The rules were simple.
There were so many of us. Looking around and finding your next move was easy.
Find someone in the circle who has done something that you feel is wrong, distasteful, horrendous, horrific even. Something you’d consider a crime against someone else.
Now point to that person.
Unless that person can prove on every single level that he or she is not complicit in what you are pointing at him or her for, they must sit down.
Once all the obvious perpetrators are seated, there are a few surprises.
This one a priest? Your co-worker? A principal? A journalist? A policeman? A humanitarian?
All seated now.
More surprises, as your neighbors, classmates, friends, family and heroes sit down.
Who’s pointing now? Those sitting still play this game – their guilt does not absolve or hide yours or anyone else’s.
“Complicity” includes looking the other way, pretending not to notice, letting self-absorption or fear or greed or status define your view.
There are levels of guilt.
We are all sitting now.
Some of us are glad to be finally called out so it can be brought to an end. Some of us frustrated and angry at having been pointed at; we don’t want to stop. Many of us confused, having no clear idea of the complicit crime pointed out, or why we are guilty of it.
Those are the ones still pointing. They need the next level:
When the standers are seated, they are replaced with the mirrors.
We are in a circle. We are surrounded in mirrors.
The game continues.
If point you must, go right ahead. What you’ll find, eventually and inevitably, is the crux of your blame.
You point only at you.
You are the one who blames.
You are the one who knows the “crime”.
How will you judge?
You are the ones you’ve been waiting for. You have anchored the light. It is done.
