I was reading an article earlier about right to life vs abortion rights and it got me thinking. We often hear politicians say proudly “We are a nation of laws”. I have lived my life carefully, always staying within the lines of the laws that we are told we must obey. Usually I would agree with this as we always are told about the chaos that would ensue if we were to stop living by the rule of law, but then I thought more deeply about this way of life we are living.
It seems to me if we always do what we are told because we are told to, that in itself takes away our ability to experience making choices and learning by experience what is the right way to live ones life. We wonder why so many people don’t seem to have morals and standards anymore, but I guess we no longer need them if we live by rules and laws and not by our own understanding of right and wrong and how one lives a respectable life by embracing wholesome morals.
There are so many subtle ways we have had our life experience tampered with and we are unfortunately beginning to see the results of abandoning our sense of self. That is what creates chaos! If we don’t stop long enough to question how we are living life, what we are doing and where we are going, we are just going through the motions of living life but without purpose or understanding…Just a thought I had….
Blessings to all,
