Ethics

With so many scandals of late we should discuss ethics. It is a difficult topic for some but a necessary one for society.

Ethics are essentially how we treat each other. As you can guess love should be the rule of the day. What I can tell you it is not just about our failures. Many of us in life fail or fall from grace. The true test of ethics is how do we proceed after such.

Everyone talks about what is wrong and how you should treat others but few talk about if what you do if you fail or fall. So lets discuss that.

When we fall in any way we must examine ourselves. We must ask the hard questions of where did things go wrong. Why did we stumble into a path of despair. We must ask ourselves who did we hurt and how can we make right.

The trick with ethics is even after a fall we must continue and rebuild ourselves. It is not easy but neither is love. That quite frankly is usually the problem. At some point we stop using love and disregard someone somewhere for some reason.

I've stumbled many times in my life. I have even fallen. But I accept my errors as best I can and try to pick myself up and learn. Hopefully I can make right for whatever I have done or do better in the future. Because that is part of ethics. Always acknowledge your failures as well as your success.

When you acknowledge both you show you are trying. You show you care enough to learn and heal. You show love.

The reasons why we fall are many. Sometimes it is out of our hands and we get drawn into things unintentionally. Sometimes we dive in.  The latter being the worst. As I have mentioned before we must approach people and life with love.

I realize we are not perfect but neither is love. It requires work, support, and so much devoted energy. Sometimes we have to forgive ourselves and sometimes others. Sometimes we must forgive the unforgivable.

Life is not perfect and neither are we. I think that is the point though. We all have flaws. The only way to work with each other is to hold a standard of compassion and love. When we abandon that then we are in an ethical quandary.

Oh I could tell you so many times in my life people have left deep and bitter scars. There have been times in deep pain I lashed back at them. There have been times I lashed out at whoever stumbled upon a deeply hurt soul.

However I can, I try. I don't have every answer or idea how to fix it all but I do try. In that I love. I forgive, both myself and others. It is and always has been the origin of a problem for which we must resolve and heal. For without this we only treat the symptoms.

As for ethics we should begin in honesty, dignity, respect, and yes love. People may not return it but we must try. We may feel the sting of reprisal for falling but it is a result of our path. Sometimes we end up in thorns.

Justice in such matters vary. It is difficult to tally up a response because every persons pain is different. However, it must be done. It is an ethical soul that when they hurt acknowledges their pains and accepts censure or punishment to balance the pain.

And if it is justice it will not outweigh the pain caused. It is just as much about love when we deal justice as it is when we pay for it. We must acknowledge our imperfections in judgement as well as payment.

Love is our only path if we are to ever exist and thrive as a society. Without it you will only know pain and division. It is not perfect and we may be hurt but if we refuse to give up and do try then we give love a chance. And in the end love is the only thing that will heal us.

The ethical soul lives in and for love. It knows when to pay and when to forgive. It is the anvil of  of perfection.

I am imperfect but I love. As such it makes my path that which leads to perfection even with all my flaws. Please lead an ethical life and choose love. It serves us all.

The Game

I'm sure many of us know the grand game we are sucked into by racists, bigots, radicals, and so many more. They seek to debate and contest everything about us. They are much like a street hustler with a shell or card game. Their slights of hand and speech distract you from the perceived target so that you fail.

So how do we win this game that seeks to question our very lives and existence? It is simple. We don't play the game.

If someone is engaging you in slight of hand and speech you don't engage a ruse. If you do you are then reacting and the it now becomes their timetable and structure. Never dignify the thoughts or ideas that tear people apart or cause them harm.  You only validate their views as worthy of debate.

By no means ignore them either. In time they can entice and stir up those who are not informed or educated enough on things. You do however walk up to them eye to eye and you tell them:  How dare you question another Humans dignity. How dare you try and treat a fellow citizen as anything less than equal. How dare you even consider violence or murder towards another as a preemptive strike. How dare you treat people as anything less than Human.

Look them in the eye, stand! Do not back down. Do not waiver. Ignore their slights of hand and speech. Condemn the man who would even think of demeaning or hurting another simple because they exist.

This is not about violence but they may very well make it so. If that occurs then defend yourself in and with love. Know even in their violence it is a distraction not meant for you but for others. They will use it as evidence they are being persecuted for their beliefs.

Love, Honor, Dignity, and Justice are the only discussions and actions in a true society. Anything else is a disservice to someone. And when someone is treated so we are all in danger, for it never stops there. In time we all become judged and targets.

Never play the game. Love and love with surety. Those who seek to play with your lives can not survive in love. Hate is their game.

Limits

Let us talk a bit about limits today. It seems to be all the rage in talk of late. Some people talk of limiting gun laws. Some want to limit LGBT rights. Others want to limit police power. It does not matter which aspect is chosen as it does the very topic.

Normally I walk you down a path of understanding to a conclusion. Today let us go directly to the point. There are no set limitations to your life. However you must also be accountable to your actions. As such you have no authority over anyone but yourself.

For the sake of a greater achievement and unity sometimes we come together and set rules or goals for us to work by. All is fine if each and every person is respected. However when you decided to limit or harm another it is you who are in violation of the ultimate rule of life.

All people are sovereign and all are priceless. Sometimes we lose our way, get scared, hurt beyond belief, or even go mad. It does not dismiss the rules of sovereignty, however.  In order to be sovereign you must love. 

Love is the anvil from which all things are lain in judgement. It allows us the understanding to take into context our actions and those of others. For without it you remove Humanity. And when you do that you have lost all authority, even over yourself.

One can commit a horrible murder but do we stop at the surface or look further. The question should always be why. Who or what pushed a person to such an extreme?  Was there any other path or anyone to prevent such a path? Did anyone bother to try to intervene in such a path? The questions are many.

There are few absolutes in our existence. One however is love. Never turn it off. Never judge without it. Never deny it.

So back to our point, limits. When do we limit power or authority? We do not unless the sovereignty of one or many have been affected. However with that statement goes the fact only the one who has violated said sovereignty shall be limited.

You can argue people need restraints or modesty. You can argue a need for security. However if you can not in love be fair to all your point has no merit.

The truth is and always has been that we and I are the same. Guilty until proven innocent, punished for the acts of others, censored for disagreement, murdered for existence... Examples of a lack of love.

Whatever or whoever you chose to limit must be held to the anvil of love. It is only Human.

So can you love another and accept all the vulnerabilities that come with that? Can you accept it may cause you pain? Can you accept it may charge you? Love is the heights and depths of the Human soul.

There are no limitations except for those which you set for yourself. Set those in love else it is you for which the anvil shall judge. Hopefully you judged with love. Anything else is inhuman.

Accountablity

In these times we must look beyond the surface and search for the roots of our problems. We must hold people accountable for their words and actions. We must enlighten.

We live in an age where people seem to have lost connection and responsibility. From the highest office to the entertainment and media we see a society that strives for more; more fame, more power, more money.

Anything to achieve their goals seems to be the rule they employ. But I say no. You are accountable and always shall be. When your words and actions drive people to extremes, depression, insanity, or even death you bear that sin. You bear that sin alone.

It matters how you achieve your goals. People are not toys to be manipulated, isolated, subjugated or hurt. They are free. I don't care if you agree. It is so!

When you harm you become evil, even if only slightly. This world is ours, all of ours. It is our lives, not just yours. It is one thing to wage a campaign of thought evolution and wider vision. It is another to limit, harm, or remove those you disagree with.

As I said it is a sin. You who originate it bear it alone. Those you have hurt, misguided, or enthralled must still pay their dues but you who lain its origin bear its weight, alone.

Society is not a perfect place and never will be. If it did become so we would stop being Human. All people are not on the same level of development or thought. Taking advantage of those who do not know any better or are not ready to change is wrong.

Prompting change by any means necessary is evil. Pushing people by any means necessary is evil. Hurting people by any means necessary is evil.

You are accountable for your words and actions and by proxy those you drive before you. The good soul will hurt when they see though your lies and deceptions and hurt for all things. The origin however must carry that sin.

This is not a battle of good vs. evil. It is a quest for justice. For justice allows all accounts to be settled.

Everyone is accountable and everyone has things on their account. The question is do we right them.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote "No man can have society upon his own terms."  I disagree. When we achieve justice and strive for justice all are served. Will we have perfect terms? No! Will we have acceptable terms? Yes!

You see when you love and it is true your heart can forgive and mend. When you love, you make right however you can. You can not erase all that has gone before but you can love. Love sustains. Love heals.

My terms for life are love. Maybe one day everyone will know such grace.

Stand By Me

Sometimes in life we get bogged down by details, people speaking, and all sorts of distractions. We get lost in the tide of negativity instead of realizing whats most important.

Stand! Help another stand! Stand together!


Amazing words what old music can teach if we actually listen and not get distracted.
