We don't dwell on the title of the post but it sure makes itself known at the right time i.e. the time of announcement or discovery. Usually this statement is made when someone is surprised of your gain, holding or accomplishment making them ponder and state what their reaction is. If we have received ill-gotten gains or questionable ones our conscience speaks up long before anyone else does
IT IS NOT WHAT YOU HAVE...
How you have come to have something is paramount to having whatever it is. To be blunt and on point: To lie, cheat, manipulate, underhand or steal to gain is not allowed but done constantly everywhere in regards to everything. How do we know this? These dynamics work and because of that they get used over & over
Remember the famous saying: cheaters never prosper? It means when the full (not good) story gets out of how you have come to have something you will realize it was not worth it and the harsh criticism by others will not be spared. In other words, it is not worth it to gain the whole world but to lose the "right" benefit of having whatever it is or was you thought you should have....no matter what! ?
ROLL THE DICE?
There are people who are willing to pay the price of criticism, ill-feeling and suspicion thinking it be for a short term and worth it compared to their supposed current suffering. I won't argue the temptation factor as it is designed similar to that of a spiders web i.e. to capture and detain the unsuspecting passerby or curious visitor...but to their soon to be discovered...DETRIMENT!
WEB of INTRIGUE?...will visit with you
"Oh what a tangled web we weave when we start out to deceive" is a non-negotiable true to form statement of those that get caught up in first fooling themselves and then thinking they are fooling others. This action is as old as the hills but makes the rounds sparing no one who is unethical and poor in spirit/soul dynamics
RIGHT from WRONG
We take this for granted this ability we call "right and wrong" and to our detriment when we do. This is a powerful and invisible dynamic that is in everyone and cannot be turned off only denied, manipulated and perverted but never erased or ignored. Humans just know and that measure stays true all our life time too
NOTE THIS: Children innocently discover this at some point & a responsible authority usually a parent will introduce the lesson of this when they do. At that point, the righteousness of concept strengthens while temptation (wrongfulness) of it weakens. From there, it is now a solid foundation to build upon. Build on what you may ask?
You either have a good character or you do not with YOU being the first judge of it all. How important is character? Well I often apply the Richie Rule of reverse it! Lack of character stands out, is not welcomed and is identified quickly for the worse and effects all that happens poorly from that point on
THE HOW LOW WOULD YOU GO...question
I have never met anyone who likes to play this game of answering "how low would you go". Why? It opens up an array of negative, anti-good, dishonorable, perverted, under-handed type thinking and dimensions that is not only unpleasant to the self but to everyone within earshot. A human being stooping so low is unacceptable to all and even not stated is thought by everyone. The word "disgust" is appropriate
THE RIGHT WAY
The right way can be boring, uneventful and without fanfare because it is devoid of tainted dynamics and doesn't appeal to the emotions, five senses and various thought processes that are questionable. If referred to as a tree, its fruit is peace, rest and a calm emanating from within and surprisingly makes no effort to exist because it just is. The perfect state also called I AM....
Take anything that is procured incorrectly and while it is exciting in the having and doing of it doesn't satisfy making one to seek out the excitement again and again thus repeating "wrong" events and approaches to gain satisfaction. The statement of: There is no rest for the wicked" is no myth but a woeful curse at work sparing no one and punishing the doer where it smarts the most i.e. is within the soul
WHO IS THE JUDGE OF ALL THIS?
First we are. We have the ability to say it is or is not acceptable not only as individuals but as groups. Our laws at large demonstrate this as we all agree and then are held to those standards. The statement of: ignorance of the law is no excuse holds true. Responsibility demands that you know before you do anything. If we correctly perform this judging of ourselves then we will not be judged. Want and do this
LOST & FOUND
Stories of how someone lost something...anything and then how it was returned to them warm the heart and feed the soul. Why is this? Why do people want to see other people prosper, be well, come to the good and be made whole? Why does it bring a sense of closure money cannot buy? True goodness does this.....
A world of good.....
