Judgement - of oneself. The criteria

Now and then take a look at yourself and say: ‘I always believe myself to be irreproachable, of course, but where is the proof? Is my intellect lucid? Is my heart filled with love for the Creator and his creatures? Is my will so strong that no one can stop me from realizing my ideal?’ If we are sincere, we have to admit that our intellect understands very little, that our heart is restless with contradictory passions, and that our will is pulled in every direction. Well, draw your own conclusions: you are not in the right. There are criteria for judging oneself, but most people do not want to know about them. Someone has made a mess of his life. He is miserable, sick, embittered, without friends and money, but this does not matter: his philosophy is impeccable and he is in the right! Who says so? He himself, of course. Well, it is not for him to pass judgement, but for the events and circumstances of his life. Those who find themselves endlessly immersed in insoluble problems should conclude that something in themselves needs to be redressed.
