Judgement

Confucius as the card of Judgement confuses me.  He appears more likely The Hierophant.  I remember in my younger days there were a bunch of witty, sarcastic one liners "ahh, Conficius say"

One of his tenets was "do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself." - The Golden Rule
Can we ever know what another does or doesn't want?  What I need or want is different than the next, and I think much different in different cultures.  When Confucius live 551-479 B.C.  rural China had to be much different than the China today and America was still off the edge of the flat Earth.
I best not decide or judge what is best for another, besides I have enough work dealing with myself.

  1. Perhaps it is just simply that I wouldn't want someone to hurt me, so I shouldn't hurt other people.

  2. I agree with Bev. The most simple interpretation is often the best one.
    The bible states it just the other way around:
    “So then, in everything treat others the same way you want them to treat you. This is the essence of the Law"
    I think this way it might be easier to grasp
