Judgement embodies those forces which require us to be accountable for our actions. With Judgement truths are revealed, mysteries are unraveled and responsibility is assigned.
Judgement unveils outcomes and marks the ends of things. While it is a time to properly place guilt, it is also a time for atonement and forgiveness.
Ultimately the process of Judgement should lead to freedom from errors made in the past and a fresh start with a clean slate. To that end Judgement actually promises the start of a new journey on which we can apply what we have learned from our past.
