English Transcript: 

We can’t judge people’s spiritual journey; even someone we think doesn’t have one may have one, but not in the means that we normally think of. So, the main thing one is freed from in these higher states of consciousness – surrender and transcendence – is the ability not to judge anyone else and the capacity to just be oneself which is an ordinary human being equal with everybody else, but – what is most important – in some way now equal to God because they have accepted him finally on his own terms.


 

Spanish Transcript: 

La aceptación de otros y aceptación de Dios

No podemos juzgar el viaje espiritual de la gente, incluso alguien que pensamos que puede no tenerlo, de hecho quizá lo tiene, pero no de la forma que normalmente pensamos. Por lo tanto, lo principal que adquirimos en estos estados superiores de conciencia - la entrega y la trascendencia - es la capacidad de no juzgar a nadie y la capacidad de simplemente ser uno mismo, un ser humano ordinario igual a todos los demás, pero - lo que es más importante - de alguna manera ahora igual a Dios porque finalmente ha sido aceptado en sus propios términos.
