It completely and utterly amazes me in a disgusting sort of way, how humans that call themselves civilized are so far from civilized. Everything seems to appeal to their primal side or their dark side. That seems exciting and makes people 'forget who they are.' If things do not contain drama, or some act of a negative nature, it holds no interest.
There are so many places, things, situations, that I could go on and on about but these are my thoughts at the time and they are what I want to share with you now. Drama - this one really cracks me up. I've been to dating sites, I've spoken with many people, I've heard from friends and their friends, and so many sources, I don't want a friend or a partner with drama. First, please tell me who does not have drama in their life - especially now in this world where we are turning our world into a mindless prison camp. Everyone has drama and if you are lucky enough to go without it for a period of time, you can bet it will find you no matter where you hide. I'm not trying to be negative - that is not my point. The point is that people need to be accepting of others. They want perfect people to be around but those people need to reflect on their own lives first.
Drama comes as a result of either bad circumstances or something that we have caused, perhaps not intentionally but the cause and effect situation comes into being here. Some people are drawn to drama and some just can't seem to live without it. I have met of these people and they do not actually like the drama but do not know how to live without it. I has become a part of their lives and they are so afraid to move beyond it, they would rather stay totally and completely miserable instead of moving forward into something better. That of course involves moving out of their comfort zone and that is like running from an ax murderer to them.
Anyway, this all started because my cat killed a mouse today. Now you might say well that is what cats do and then everyone is just all hunky dory fine with that but is that ok? Is it really ok for one life to kill another? No provocation, no threat, nothing and now that little mouse who was just trying to get warm, trying to come in out of the cold is now deceased. In a child's movie, if the little mouse was killed it would be such a horrible and sad moment. I realize that cats have that predator instinct and that is how they were made and some may say that is why we are superior OR some may say that is why we are higher on the food chain and that my friends is a very scary thought now isn't it? The food chain, so to someone else - may we be food as well? Would that be ok if that was their predator instinct?
We as people know better than to just go around killing - or at least most of us do but we still carry very savage thoughts, make beastly comments every day on places like Facebook and other social media, judge everyone and their mother like it is their job and it is getting worse by the day.
I can't help but wonder if these same people happen to be perfect. Are they so superior that they can judge, cut people with their sharp words just because? Are they gods? If they are doing these things then you know they themselves are far from perfect people. I am also not a saint or anywhere close to it but I have dedicated myself to making people feel better, to helping them when they need it, to putting my own problems and issues aside so that I can take on the needs of others for a while.
I am not expecting others to do that but I am expecting that people should and are fully capable of being responsible, loving, and caring individuals but the majority of people are getting caught up in one big wallowing horrific cloud of negativity that they don't know how else to be. It is like a lethal game of follow the leader. Be that one person who makes a difference. Did you not like the stupid comment John made on his Facebook today - wait, instead of making a snide or insulting remark, think for a minute on John's life. Maybe he make terrible remarks or makes fun of people all day - maybe that is his thing so are you going to be just like John? Or maybe John doesn't hurt people's feelings - so why not go ahead and hurt John a little today so you can have your laugh?
There is no way that I would be able to make the point that I started out to make when I began writing this blog because it would probably consume a book, but please, just for today, say something nice to everyone you come across. Smile at everyone, even strangers and if they do not return the smile or even give you a bad look or remark, just let it go - you don't know what they may be going through. Just for today - patch up a skirmish with someone. Just for today, do something nice for someone else.
Also, try to open your mind just a little bit more to see what underlying chaos is causing the strife in our world - our only place to live. The one place where the one race that exists - the human race - lives together. Love one another, bring peace to another which will bring peace to your heart, mind, and body.
Discover your spiritual path - not a religious path, or a political path, and you will set yourself free.
