Becoming less judgmental has been part of my journey. Judgement is not conducive to spiritual growth. It limits you in myriad ways.
As for the other life, it's as worth living as any other life. It's all ONE. Those lives of which you're so scornful are still part of the One, part of Source. Consciousness is still present, even if awareness is not, so who are we to decide that a life that doesn't include some sort of "spiritual path" is wasted or useless or wrong?
For the record, I didn't choose this path. It unfolded on its own. All I have ever done is surrender when it became clear that resistance and struggle were futile and would get me nowhere. I am not all special or noble or wonderously wise and holy or in any position to judge. There but the grace of God go I.

Yes, I've had that realisation. It is what it is, it was what it was, and I'm uniquely suited to it. *shrug* To me, it's like being born with a beautiful face or high intelligence or some other trait deemed "desirable". It's not something you choose. It's just something with which you, for whatever reason, are blessed.
