Rosh HaShanah—The Trial Of Oneself

530Question: In Rosh HaShanah, you need to judge yourself. This is associated with self-criticism: how bad I am, how different I am from the Creator. How does this vigilante justice differ from the state when “The fool folds his hands and eats his own flesh”?

Answer: You should not eat your own flesh, curse, and judge yourself. You should only direct yourself to love others. This is “judging yourself.”

Question: How can you not judge friends?

Answer: Love them.
From the Daily Kabbalah Lesson 9/16/23, “Rosh HaShanah
