If I were to imagine that the only use for my life would be to live and work diligently as insects do and then just die, I would say what I always thought as a child. “What’s the point?” When I became painfully aware of death as a young child, many times I wondered why I was doing anything. Why any of us even bothered.
I then became aware of those that changed the world for others. I felt strongly that this is the reason we are all here. To make a difference for the better. I find it very disturbing that most people are not very intelligent or wise. That most don’t share my belief that we can all be someone else’s hero. That many use other people for their selfish ends and proceed to lash out like a small child at the least provocation to anything or anyone that does not agree with them. Most have absolutely no knowledge as to the miracle of life and just how precious every one of us are.
It’s really not their fault if they are not taught this in some way. Humans only know what they learn from others.
I have suffered through a very hard and cruel life and when I was a young woman I made up my mind that I was going to write an autobiography, anonymously of course, in the hopes to help others that have shared similar fates and to warn women, especially mothers, of what not to do to their children.
Most don’t really have a clue what they are doing in life and will never realize this while they are here so there’s no problem for them at all. Everyone I know that is content in his or her ignorance does not appear to have the ability to look beyond what they are automatically doing. They never question any bad decision made even when confronted by others they have hurt. Any accusation is incredulous to them. What an odd way to live. Socrates said “The unexamined life is not worth living” but I don’t know if I agree sometimes. Some of the most self-deluded ignorant people are the amongst the most content that I know. Ignorance is bliss to many but I just don’t understand how.
I believe an individual’s cloak should be removed from their sins if they are hurting others. Jesus believed this as well. He said this was why he was hated by many. We should all be allowed to live as we wish as long as it doesn’t effect others adversely. This almost never happens. Anything we do does somehow effect others. Even the act of hiding one’s head under the sand and committing the sin of omission.
