This is very true about the trust and reason. I think almost all of us have very strong reasons not to trust life and strangers and even our loved ones. My feeling however is that this is something we really should prioritize. ie; To put more effort into understanding people especially those who are dysfunctional. We can put effort into protection and it is presently needed. However I believe humanity puts far more time and energy into judging and protecting than they do in understanding.
The above words were written in reply to another bubblers creation that was related to protecting children from strangers. It has stimulated me to write about this aspect of human life as I believe we are living more increasingly as victims.
Throughout the history of humanity we have experienced fear and pain and in my opinion have prioritized survival and competition above true and open relationship. I believe we have bought the whole fallen angel story and the born with sin line. We experience confusion and all too quickly store it as pain and guilt.
I truly believe that life has a deep and pure reason and that every being is born free from guilt and fear. However so few humans ever seem to have gone deep enough in thought to help facilitate living their lives with the freedom and purity they were born with. We have been given the wonderful capacity to feel and think but seem to be wasting both.
I endeavor to live my life as a deep thinker and also as a deep feeler. At times I lose control but embrace this as a pathway to understand myself, others and life more. I also seem to touch on many people’s insecurities and have incurred the wrath of many people including many close to me. I have also been accused of being cold and insensitive.
However whilst I agree that force or violence are very unnecessary aspects of life I also believe that people are far too precious in dealing with hurt. Human nature to me is very at odds with our true essence and if we do not open up and take some risks this will never change. If someone hurts us we have the choice to carry this hurt or go deep within to understand why we have been hurt.
I would rather die than live a life where I had to continually protect myself from others or them from me. I so want freedom and passion and therefore prioritize honesty and depth above the protection of weaknesses. I believe we must decide if we want to live or just survive. Human life is a gift but one that will only be truly beautiful when we stop fearing it.
