Unseen, unknown, but presumed unworthy – humans judge one another and compare worthiness, and no one benefits. The presumption of unworthiness exists because of fear, intimidation, and lack of knowledge about others. Sometimes human beings are falsely taught or given information about others that have no basis in truth. It is these historical lies that foster division and judgment among strangers. The judgment of another person renders that person not worthy of any gifts or natural talents that they may have. Expectations are minimized as the person who judges another seeks to substantiate the lie that they have perpetuated within their own mind. It is all seems so senseless.
