Daily Prompt: In A Jiffy, It Can All Go To Hell & So Can You

There is never an excuse for unprovoked violence.

To physically attack another human being because you don’t like them or you get angry is to ask to be stopped in any manner someone decides to stops you.

Even Jesus said to “Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.”  If you attack to show power or act out aggression in anger, I can honestly say that I have no sympathy for whatever brutal outcome befalls you.  It may be shocking and sad but very predictable.  So many mock Christ but he also told us to love our enemies so we don’t retaliate against the ones that do act out or this world would be a non-stop blood bath of vengeance.  Look around at the evil ones that provoke others to lose their souls daily defending themselves or others.

Self defense and acting out in vengeance are two very separate things, but can be confused in the human mind.  It’s easy to want to get back at someone that harmed or wronged you, but It’s understandable if someone is beating you or someone else, that you try to stop that person, hopefully without killing them.

There is no one on God’s earth in their right mind that will sit back and allow someone to try and take their life and limb from them and do nothing to defend themselves or others if they are witness to such.  We do have survival deeply wired into us.  Even if someone is on your side or downplays what you do, because they don’t like the person or people you attacked and find a way to defend your evil act, it still does not absolve you of your guilt and blame for any incident that you started.

I loved the original movie “The Day The Earth Stood Still” for that reason.  They had robots that kept all aggression under control on their planet and came to earth to warn them to knock off all violence or the planet earth would be eliminated.  I really believe that if mankind does not get the “devil out them” real quick, with the current technology we now possess, it would not be hard to destroy the planet and everything God created.

 

Daily Prompt: Instinct or Wisdom?

Humans are another form of animal life on this planet.  The deadliest form and yet many of us appear to lack the basic instinct to get along with our fellow-man.  When I was younger I was fascinated with ESP and studied it due to my own random psychic powers.  I began wondering if this was really ESP or just the same normal animal instinct given all the species and what is “instinct” really?

It’s that innate ability to know what you need to know to survive and yes it does seem a little “extra-sensory” if you don’t acknowledge that all animals possess this skill and we are indeed animals.  There is a fabulous book out called “The Gift of Fear And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence” by Gavin De Becker.  The obvious problem with man is that there are just too many distractions as well as bad advice from so-called “experts” that are allowed to voice this bad advice to others on a wide scale.  This is another way that liberals have destroyed our society and made everyone much less safe by making you second guess yourself.  Don’t ever do that.  According to pop-culture suggestions, we are supposed to ignore our own personal prejudices or feelings and just dive into bad situations head first so we don’t look like a hater.  Sometimes you need to hate or at least be suspicious.

Don’t misunderstand.  There is never an excuse for being mean or unfair to any other human being whether you agree with them or not.  Unless they are endangering you or your loved ones.  Even those that threaten your way of life with promoting their way of life is not imminent danger and not grounds to overreact with violence on your part, as you hear of some doing.  It’s not prejudice to be afraid of a group of young men that you don’t know, black or white, that suddenly approach you no matter what your color, but if you go according to some, you are a bad person if you feel this way if they are a different race than you.  The fact is anyone that approaches you no matter their sex, nationality or age should concern you right off, depending on where you are and the situation.  Even those offering you much needed assistance.

Most people are not that friendly or generous unless they want something in return although you know there are those rare exceptions and we call them heroes.  Those that would risk their own lives to help others without anything in return.  Most people kind of suck when it comes to getting involved and many that pretend to help have ulterior motives.  Sometimes you can feel it, that something’s not right and if you lack this discerning instinct it just might cost you your life.

Civilizations Need to be Civilized

The only way humans become civilized is the same we have domesticated our pets.  We all need proper training.  Much like bad pets sorely in need of obedience training, many people are completely lacking in important manners and social skills that will enable them to survive in the world.  That may even save some of their lives!

Through many years of learning the hard way I’m sure, man has learned what is appropriate and not acceptable by their fellow planet dwellers.  During the swinging 60’s the media became the mouthpiece for selfish clowns that declared “God is dead” and “if it feels good, do it!”  The fact that these flakes were either higher than kites or just rebelling against their years of strict parenting meant nothing to most people because as long as attractive people that dress nicely and speak in well modulated voices say something, they believe it.

Parents loved hearing that little Johnny no longer needed to be disciplined because it might cramp his style or hurt his psyche.  Heaven forbid he hear the word no and be scarred for life!  Who wouldn’t want to believe the clones on TV?  Makes your life easier, you don’t have to care what your children are doing or fight with them anymore.  Who cares if they burn down the house or start killing others when they get a little older?

We all should!

We are all animals and for any animal to get along with others and survive, certain skills must be learned.  The most important of which used to be taught in the home with other siblings or when starting school and that is sharing.  Because only children are more common now, the sharing part is a little trickier than with those that have had to share mom’s love or a room with someone growing up.  The fact remains, conscientious parents do care what their children’s future will be and intelligent ones realize just how important social skills are.

Sadly, the very people that need to learn these skills are usually the last ones that do.  This makes life unpleasant to downright dangerous for everyone.  Neglected children are some of the most angry and disturbed and for the fact that they are “neglected” it means that no one is teaching them anything that will help them in their struggles to fit into an already cruel world.  It’s much easier on a child to fit into a crazy, evil world if they’ve known security and love since birth.  Those that do not feel wanted or loved will treat everyone that slights them later with severe anger because it stirs up the wounds they carry from their painful childhood.  That’s why some can handle a job with a crazy boss much better than others.  No baggage regarding crazy, so they don’t take the abuse or slights personally.

Manners are so important to getting along with others and being liked, but if someone already knows there is not love for them in the world, they have given up on trying to please or placate others.  To them it’s more of an unrealistic expectation to think that others that don’t even like them should expect a smile or kind word from them.  It’s fake to them and it is, make no mistake.

Manners are very fake, but very necessary to making others feel important and showing that you do care.  As artificial as saying please and thank you are, they make others feel as if you are acknowledging them as someone worth respecting.  Neglect is not respect.  Abuse is not fun, but neglect is like saying “you are dead to me” and that’s actually worse.

The more people are neglected, the further they disconnect from the feelings of others, genuinely.  Then when a tragedy occurs many that were raised with somewhat normal parents will ask “why?”  This is why!  These are the people that have no idea what compassion is and never even learned to how fake it.  They are beyond trying to “impress” others and have given up trying, they cannot relate to others.  Then if someone gets on their last twisted nerve, it doesn’t end well.

Mothers, love your children and teach them well while you still can!

Cause & Effect: Teach Your Children Well

BrownHorse

I need to ask you parents something.  Would you rather be right or see your child fit in?

Would you be willing to send your child to school with a bull’s-eye on his or her back just to prove a point?  Most men would have had a fit if their son wanted to bring something like that to school at that age but leave it to mom to think it’s A-OK to love My Little Pony!  Then there are the “Bronies.”

People definitely should not be bullied into anything, but we all know this is how most things are run in the world.  We are all bullied to a certain extent to perform in school and work, to obey laws and to pay our tax.  If we didn’t fear some kind of punishment or humiliation from our behavior, the human race could fast turn into soulless, purposeless monsters.  Much like some are now.

Most of us learned cause and effect when we were growing up.  It’s a sign of an intelligent mind.  A mind that would like to survive because it figured out if I do this, then that may happen.  This is how we learn what we should or shouldn’t be doing because it provokes certain responses from others.  You then need to decide should you continue your actions, even if you are in the right or are you being demeaned by others because you are disgusting them.  Sometimes bullies have a point when they make fun of those that appear to want to be made fun of.  Nasty people will find any reason to attack those they think are weak and no one has to antagonize them.

If someone appears hostile or menacing an intelligent person thinks twice before provoking those they know won’t hesitate to abuse in some way.  It’s like an openly gay guy deciding to knowingly go into a red neck bar in the Bible belt.  That’s a go at your own risk type of deal.  Everyone knows you should be able to have the freedom to do what you want, within reason, but many would love to bully that man due to the fact that they would think he should know better and is probably trying to antagonize them.

That is another reason that people are abused by others.  Nothing makes some people madder than when they feel they are being played by someone.  Being taunted in some way.  I don’t really feel sorry for people that know they offend others and choose to do it anyway only to cry about it later.  Sort of like a kid dumb enough to taunt a classmate with “Nah nah nah nah nah” then cry when they get beat up.

There are some that are offended by anyone just looking at them, but those people don’t count.  That kind of evil usually comes to no good like the Detroit man who killed a teen for giving him a “look” he didn’t like and in turn also caused the accidental shooting death of the accomplice’s seven-year old daughter.  Ironic that this accomplice was the one that gave him the gun to shoot someone else’s child.

LOOK PAST YOUR PAST

You cannot move forward, looking behind.

Most of my life has been spent in poverty yet I can’t remember a time that I grieved about doing without various things.  I had too many other things to worry about that had nothing to do with money.  I have never been materialistic, thank God.  I sometimes think this was an inner survival tactic.  I would have driven myself even crazier if I became angry or frustrated about anything material that I lacked as well as love.  This may be why I spent most of my childhood immersed in books so I could escape as much as possible. 

I do think that I really am not materialistic by nature because “things” do not mean much to me and as soon as I have anything extra, I give it away and don’t miss it, much like love, not that I have had that much experience with it.  I have always worked very hard to survive and never give up the hope for things to get better for myself, my family and for God’s people in the world.  The world itself will never change. 

I have been called a “goody-two-shoes” which is supposed to be a put-down that I take as a compliment.  “Thank you!”  I know I will always take the high road.  I was once told by a rather snotty co-worker while trying to help someone that I “can’t save the whole world,” whatever that meant.  A bit blown out of proportion, but I was thinking “you don’t know the glory of God, do you?  You can’t even begin to imagine what I am capable of in faith!”  It’s hard to work with lazy haters when you are a conscientious child of God. 

I plan on being more specific in the future regarding life, the choices you make and the times when you don’t get to choose.  Take care, God bless and may peace be with you.

Random Acts of Violence

By now everyone has heard of the horrific shootings in Aurora Colorado.  I have not even been able to bring myself to actually watch the coverage of this.  Suffice to know that 12 precious human beings were killed and many others wounded all because a young man wanted to act out his aggression in a way that would bring him glory.  I say this after reading Gavin de Becker’s book “The Gift of Fear And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence.”  I don’t remember which section of the book is dedicated to information involving assassins, mass murderers and their mindset after their attacks, but it was documented that a number had complained if their random act of violence did not receive the same amount of news coverage than a previous assassin.  This shows a huge ego, not to mention complete detachment from reality and lack of compassion.  Apparently these kinds of mass murderers or assassins have similar personalities.    The book is very well written and manages to entertain as it covers all aspects of violence in our world from children to co-workers to partners to random acts.  It gives you information, ideas and tips to try and keep you as safe as you can be in a very cold and cruel world.

A must read for everyone because it deals with survival on a daily basis.  It is loaded with valuable information regarding the fact that we are all born with radar to distinguish crazy.  There might be a real incentive to stay sober for some of you because one of the most dangerous things a woman can do is go out drinking and hope to meet someone she actually wants to be with.  If your brain is altered, your radar will be altered too and you risk making the same mistakes that some poor women make, never to be seen alive again.  He points out that little “gut” feeling you may have about someone is usually correct.  We all have internal radar and instincts like other forms of animals do, but our society teaches us to ignore it and go against our feelings.  Kids that are bullied usually get real stomach-aches or other physical ailments before going to school because their bodies are trying to warn them not to go to a potentially dangerous place.  Our society makes them go, regardless and everyone just has to hope for the best.

This is probably why so many women that leave demon seeds end up murdered.  They can feel what this monster’s intent is, and try to leave for survival.  Not everyone who flies off the handle is capable of murder, but they could accidentally kill someone in a fit of rage.  Everyone does not leave abusive situations and most don’t turn into murder.  In my opinion, there is a lot to consider in these types of circumstances, but a woman knows if the person she once loved has no regard for her as a human being and this is the time to worry.  It is that very lack of empathy and compassion that can easily lead someone to go beyond mere assault to murder.  We are animals and are supposed to be raised in civility.  To learn manners, cause and effect and hopefully to be raised in the Word, learning to practice the Golden Rule.  This is what allows us to live in relative safety.  Knowing our fellow-man has some degree of self-control because without this, we are doomed as human beings.

It was much safer years ago when most of us were raised by the words in the Holy Bible and we were just plumb afraid to go to hell.  Now our liberal media message is there really is no God, but be nice anyway.  Not a lot of incentive to those fighting inner demons of rage and it’s not fair to them or the rest of us who may end up their victim.  Years ago you were raised to have a conscience which enabled you to fight those demon urges and this is because of the very truth Jesus taught.  You do have the power to move a mountain if you walk uprightly.  This knowledge in the truth gave so many more people the power needed to control themselves in any manner because it was written that you could move a mountain if you had enough faith.   Now many have stolen the words of Christ, debased and warped the meaning to “anyone can do anything they put their mind to” like mind over matter.  This is not what faith is.  It is the kind of things learned from motivational speakers and Scientologists all over.  If it helps people, more power to them, as Jesus told his disciples “those that are not against us are for us.”  He also stated that when the blind is leading the blind, sooner or later they will all end up in the ditch.  The problem I have always had with liberal idealism is the fact that they love the sinner and the sin.  They began teaching children years ago with well placed TV commercials that “the most important person in the whole wide world is you, and you should know it.”  I don’t know what ignorant person thought this was a good idea, but it wasn’t.  Some psychologists tried to convince parents not to give little Johnny a guilty conscience, it would only mess him up.  Now those without conscience are messing the rest of us up.
