Judgement and understanding are not the same. I can understand when I or
anyone else has transgressed, but that does not mean that I am "judging"
right or wrong it simply means that I understand the difference. Whether
we like it of not we are stuck with our faculty of understanding, the
real need is for wisdom; the understanding of ultimate meaning. When
Jesus said judge not lest you yourself be judged, the meaning was that
we should not condemn others for their transgressions because having the
power of true justice is a divine attribute and not a human one.

I hope you are not imping that Lucifer is just a metaphor. He is an
angel of light, and I have seen this beautiful creature. When I was a
child some of my playmates were arguing about the bottomless pit, and on
that occasion I asked G-d if there was such a thing. He answered me
cryptically saying that "It will become known as the black hole". So for
me black holes are bottomless pits. He gave me this answer during the
fifties when black holes were not common knowledge.

All truths that we can communicate are finite. We can actually utter
things which are absolutely true, but most such things are ulimately
simple and have very little application. The common delusion is that if
we are told the absolute truth we suddenly become absolutely wise; this
is pure nonsense. Ultimate wisdom again must be a divine attribute; what
else could it be? Each one of us is like a flute player in the great
symphony working hard to get his part right.
We should aspire to experience the higher reality, to have visions of
the future and to see the nature of things, but our limited abilities
are really a true part of the soul, without our limits we would no
longer be ourselves and our personal histories would be meaningless.
Enjoy the music....
