Morality is not simple

Morality, when broken down to its most basic definition, is a conscious choice to respect anothers  right to safety of body and mind. After all, right and wrong only have meaning when one human is talking about something that affects themselves, other humans or living creatures.

Yet this must be tempered with the knowledge that life is not black and white, the system of values that drives us forward as a species is not simple.

Determining the best possible joy for all humans is difficult, especially when including other forms of life such as plants, mammals and even insects.

People make grandiose statements every day on social media, basking in the adulation of others as they simplify immensely complex issues into memes and soundbites.

Right and wrong are shifting paradigms that evolve daily depending on context and those of us who make them out to be just you’re either on my side of the fence or the other are just children refusing to accept the reality of life.

Don’t be a child, deepen your perspective of how life really works, then you can truly join the conversation about how to better the world that we live in.

 

Creation or destruction

It is so much easier to destroy something.

Such a simple process in most cases, just pick it up, shake it around, then smash it.

Creation, on the other hand, is a much more difficult endeavor to undertake.

Even the smallest of things become complex when creativity and logic attempt to intertwine to form something shiny and new.

This is why so many people opt out of the creation process, they hop off the boat at an early age because it’s just so easy to wreck things then build them up.

I hope in my ramblings and failed attempts to create others are inspired to create as well.

If even just one other person chooses creation over destruction I will be content knowing I left the world a better place.
