Ideology vs Action
almost everyone knows what is wrong and what is right .. many even preach it till the end of days !
yet when life happens, why the paradoxical confusion ?
what cripples us ? we stumble, fall and inevitably drown in the regret of our digressions ... a pitiful bundle of sorrow and self loathing !
what an awful state of existence ... but why ? what compels us to be so utterly stupid: once is even forgivable, but we do it again and again and again and ..
oddly enough, it is really no big secret - desire !
desire and it's younger sister, anger, wreck havoc within our psyche - this constant agitation of the mind, its resulting uncontrollable impatience, boil over into sheer animalistic rage and all the gates come crashing down.. self annihilation - or as a wise man once said " pop goes the weasel ! "
we will do anything, rationalize it all, just to get what we think we want, what we feel we need and of course, 2 year later, we don't even remember what it was or why we felt it was soooo important !
and the ensuing sorrow, the hurt caused, loved ones ignored, all those bridges burnt - for what ?
we compromised our soul and in return we bought a mirage ... the ultimate con: perpetuated by ourselves upon ourselves ...
how truly foolish !
fortunately, it's never too late to be what one envisions one can be - discipline, courage and the truth are all you need on your side... the rest will follow.
