- Morning madness..
- February 22nd, 2004
I know that this is a very personal matter and that i probably shouldnt be posting it up but i feel the need to speak my mind, even if i speak it somewhat abstractedly with intent.
When a group consciousness try as they might to get along, they work togather to achieve some sort of progressive harmony.There is no choice if a band of dissimilar people are thrown togather to survive in a harsh world.Sometimes, very often actually, they exist within a very unstable web of communication that is liable to break down at anytime.It requires constant effort to maintain, at least in the beginning.
Just a stone thrown into the pond will cause ripples and upset even the most peaceful of sleeping lillies.If one person chooses not to cooperate, and infact go so far as to willingly cause disharmony (though the cause of this may seem unintentional but i will come to this later), the entire balance of things will be upsetted and unimaginable and irrevocable chaos is likely to ensue.
People act and will react, that is natural.And when someone is acting unreasonably.. maybe the best thing to do is to hold yourself back and not add fuel to the flame.This requires more than a bit of foresight grasp and practice.But even then, everyone has a breaking point.
My questions to you are these:
Is it fair to expel, sugjugate or subdue this person with forcible intent and actions, how ever drastic it maybe?
To put it simple, is it fair to teach this person a lesson ?
Is one to take into account the past deeds, past behavior and current overall mindstate of the subject in matter?
It is not wise to judge, but to act in this matter one becomes forced to.And if one has to judge, the judgements will not be kind and the following actions will not be gentle.I am not as wise as i would like to be nor am i as patient as i hope one day to become.But i am slowly learning.My hope is that the people around me will watch me as i watch them and maybe we can learn from each other as the days go by.
