When you take into account people’s dispositions, past experiences, lifestyle, behavior patterns, environment, IQ, drive, priorities, self-awareness, etc. you can often clearly see how people got to where they got to in life. Nothing happens in a vacuum. We all had input into our algorithms that have made us who we are.
This is why I can’t fault people for thinking how they think. Where I can’t help but fault people is in their actions. Even if they don’t know better. Even if they claim ignorance it doesn’t excuse them from cruel, violent, hurtful, aggressive behavior. It just doesn’t.
Do no harm. (Even to yourself.)
Why does that seem a lesson few understand?
I guess I can’t really speak. Throwing rocks out my glass house. We all know only as much as we know and act accordingly. But…….if we just did all things with love. Love for ourselves; our bodies, souls, hearts, mind and then carried that on to everything and everyone else. How could we go wrong? No?
