Sad how we live in a society so corupt of the values we espouse but never apply. Sad how we have it in ourselves a gene that makes us so interested in the pain of another. We have grown accustomed to as well as numbed by the mean antics of others applied to another human being. Have we tripped the light on empathy and respect? Do we live in a place of denial where our vitriolic hurtful actions get cleansed by the neurotic delusions that what we do doesn't hurt another person. Does voyeurism, no matter what the cost, trump doing the right thing?
Values, particularly the key ones tied to humanity and living a life where kindness, integrity faithfulness, loyalty, and love, seem like they have become fleeting thoughts (oh, that would be a nice idea our brains say) rather than applied actions. There are so many bald face liars out there, its difficult to know who is an imposter and who isn't.
Lying is an art and if you're good at it, my God you can fool anyone. Except yourself. Oh, sure you can carry on living in a place of denial. You can surround yourself with others who believe your lies and grand illusions. You can even talk yourself into believing another reality than what is the truth. Heck, you can even play the role of victim so beautifully that you convince even the most sceptical being. But one day? The curtain will lift. The most brilliant white light will be shining directly on you. And all of a sudden, every grey hair, pock mark, scar, and wrinkle.... every shivering quivery lie, every moment you were sneaky, voyeristically snooping into another person's life just for a thrill will be visible to YOU!
Don't think you're invisible. Don't ever believe other's are blind to the way you have chosen to live your life void of applying the values you so carefully collected every Sunday while attending church. Oh! You stopped attending??? You may have a beautiful sweet sounding voice. Who knows? You may always carry yourself surrounded by a breeze of supposed innocence so that many get pulled into your fake humility. Just be aware that you are nakedly exposed......... take a look. Mirror, Mirror.
Justify. Justify your actions. Can you do it? Why is it that people can rarely walk their talk? Say one thing? Do the right thing.
Action ................ Reaction. My turn...... I'm acting.
Lying and sneaking and cheating make me want to wretch.
ps. And to the three or so UNB readers who have been scouring my blog for extensive "visits" over the past couple of days? I'm assuming you were looking for a voyeuristic buzz? 'm blogging this one especially for you. Hope you enjoyed the posts you carefully summoned up from your workstations. Hope it was titilating enough to take you away from what you should've been doing. Working! Shalom.
