On February 3, 2013 I reached the ripe young age of 53. I am proud to say I am no longer a child. I don’t have to abide by anyone’s authority, except for the laws of the universe. I don’t even have problems with man-made laws because I don’t break them. Especially those, that coincides with the laws of nature. Such as I do not steal, I do not kill nor do I condone stealing and I especially I do not condone killing. However I can understand why humans in their sometimes limited ability to reason, may find just cause to do both. A parent with hungry children will steal to feed their babies. A person who feels they have been treated unfairly may believe they have no other recourse but to retaliate, pick up arms and kill innocent people. That does not make it right but none the less it is understandable. Understandable but not justifying.
This is my standpoint and as an adult, which I am, it is my right whether you agree with me or not. In every meeting of the minds there are always differing opinions. As it has been said, opinions are like ass holes everyone has one. There are some ass holes that have opinions and do not respect your right to yours and resort to calling you stupid and dismissing you, if your views differ from theirs. That is wrong and a total lack of respect. This is a form of bullying.
In our universe there are balancing forces. Where there is darkness there is light. Where there is joy there is sadness. Where there is health there is sickness. Where there is ugly there is beauty. Where there is negative there is positive. To find peace inside ourselves we have to respect these laws of nature and understand the opposing opinions. Sometimes we must agree to disagree. To say I have lost respect for you because you have a thought that is contrary to mine is ignorant. It is one-sided and limiting mine and your intelligence.
How are we to evolve if we don’t see the opposing views? How are we to form an understanding if we don’t respect the thoughts and feelings of each other? Is it our nature to bully each other into submission? Should we turn a deaf ear to the sentiments of others? Isn’t it our ability to reason and converse that separates us from the animals that roam the wild? Should I be afraid to voice my beliefs in fear of being condemned for my opinion?
I am a humble being I avoid confrontations at all cost. But there are times when things get under my skin and I have to speak up. There is always right and there is always wrong. However my right may be your wrong and vice a verse. But we should respect our human right to our own opinions and respect the other.
I would love to hear your human opinion.
