Though from a spiritual perspective it is not right to judge others or to make judgements, in dreams we often find that we tend to do this. We need to be sufficiently spiritually advanced in order to accept matters as they present themselves, without passing an opinion. Our own experience and, for that matter that of our families, can lead to problems with authority figures such as judges in dreams. These experiences can equally make us judgemental of others? difficulties and peccadilloes. Within work situations our judgement is often an integral part of decision making. We must, for instance, evaluate whatever criteria are being applied and act accordingly, just as a judge in court must be as fair as possible.
