Sometimes it is difficult to make a point without being labeled. I talk about trying to be nice and suddenly I have become "a big ole fat softy". Perhaps. If I think you deserve kindness, then I am kind. If you don't deserve it, you don't get any from me. This notion of loving "unconditionally" has always struck me as delusional. My love is conditional. You have to have certain redeeming qualities in order for me to care about you. If you don't possess any worthwhile attributes then the best you can hope for from me is tolerance. I'll ignore you if at all possible.
This notion that everyone deserves equal treatment would be easier to swallow if everyone were "equal". They are not. Some people are stupid! No amount of loving kindness will ever change the fact that they can barely function without supervision. Some people are belligerent assholes and if we were being honest the best thing for them would be to get hit real hard in the head with a rock !
Some people seem to think that for whatever reason they are entitled to special treatment! Of course, you could just lump them altogether into one big pile and call them delusional but we humans like to put everything into a neat pile and label each little thing individually while we are being judgmental. I like to separate my crazies the same way you do laundry. The delicates should be separate from the regular wash. Colors and whites shouldn't mix. You get what I'm saying here!
The people who annoy me the most are the ones with an agenda to advance. I don't really care what particular "cause" has got your panties in a bunch. They are all pretty much the same. Gay rights, black lives matter, A Free Tibet, save the whales, or global warming . Regardless of how worthwhile your particular cause may be, becoming a bothersome pain in the ass about it will not help the situation any and in most cases does more harm than good.
I care about our Earth a great deal. But I am not egotistical enough to think that the Earth needs my help to survive! I live in harmony as much as I can but it is out of respect, not some misplaced notion I am saving anything! The Earth has been around for 4.5 billion years approximately . If our bad habits threaten it , then it is us, humanity that should be worried.
We have forsaken very reliable instincts and embraced "feelings" instead. This has lead to all manner of suffering. We try to be so much more than we are and the strain is destroying us. We were meant to go barefoot in the grass and dance around the fire! Plant gardens and make babies and watch them both grow.
