Hello everyone. Today I want to write about morals, ethics, and rules. This is a touchy subject that I do not see many people write nor even speak about. Now depending on ones own idea-forms and bundle of old habits morals, ethics, and values are literally one of a kind. Its quite silly though because most of society, especially western society, expect people to have a ‘common sense’ intellect of what morals, ethics, and values are. Society makes these idea-forms out to be as simple as something like picking what shoes to wear today. If we examine the word common sense and one says, ‘oh don’t make it so difficult. Common sense is common sense and people should kNoW what to do and not to do.’ Usually people who think this way are not open minded and not understanding to others and their different perspectives. Their consciousness doesn’t comprehend the fact that common sense is not so common after all and most of us have been misled to believe it is. Society, our guardians, or even our peers depending how one was was raised tell us “do this.. it is right. Don’t do this.. it is wrong.” Or they may say things like.. “that is bad, DON’T do that” or “that is good, it’s okay to do that.” Most people are misinformed when it comes to how to set morals and ethics and how these idea-forms are subjective yet complementary objective in their essence as well. Mostly everyone assumes what is right and wrong and they walk around mingling in the world with other-selfs imposing and forcing these limited beliefs upon others unconsciously. Our morals and ethics are like the cells in our bodies, they are always changing and evolving every step of the way we take in this life, IF we allow them to. But most people do not understand this and are under the impression of old pseudo-science and believe that the gene is set and one is ‘determined’ by them. Many scientist, doctors, and psychologists consciousness are misinformed and do not understand nor even do they try to broaden their mind-horizon that our cells and genes are just as capable of change and evolving depending on the environment they are inhabited upon. Life is interdependent and it is known that nature repeats its self and if something like cells and genes are determined by their environment than this can be said about morals and ethics as well. It’s like the blind man who takes his hand and places it upon one part of the elephant and believes that this small fragmented part he perceives with his sense-mind is all there is. But in a higher truth he is only allowing and limiting himself to a fragmented portion of the whole. If we continue with this analogy one could say the blind man is not ‘wrong’, that his limited idea-form is in fact true because to him that is all he is allowing himself to be conscious of. This then becomes a partial-truth and one cannot say so otherwise. If they do say so otherwise they will try to prove their own perception and tell the blind man.. “you are wrong!” But then they are now forming an unnecessary problem out of such minute things and infringing upon the free-will all us humans have. Society takes their past happenings and ill-formed thought-forms and labels them and staples them to their superficial egoistic selfs. This is seen in many social interactions today, when people interact with other-selfs that they believe are separate and strangers to them they hold onto their morals and ethics ever so tightly and judge and compare others before they even get the chance to let that person express their selfs in that current present-moment. Life is not black and white and even though we are conditioned and products of a divided mindset, if we want to live life without self-forming unnecessary pain and suffering then going into social interactions and speaking to ‘strangers’ with an adaptive, open, and flexible mindset is highly important.
It is the little battles we face everyday that one must fight and be conscious of. How many people do you and I know that speak of themselves being ‘good’ or doing ‘righteous’ things without realizing how many people they had to step on and belittle in order to get to their current achievement? It is often so that the moral and ethical person is unconscious to their self-limiting idea-forms. For when one acts, speaks, and feels in life it is always changing, evolving, and adapting differently to what their past mind-memory has stored in their mind. But one must acknowledge and bring their concentration to this progressive essence of their being that is veiled oh so smoothly. I could write about this topic and go on to other subtopics for days and days. This is such an interesting topic to discuss and not many people take the initiative to do so. With our limited idea-forms and old habits we forget our self and the world is and will never be the same as it was yesterday. Through our own self-imposing ignorance we elude our higher-knowledge. In no way am I saying that ethics and morals are useless because they are not, but through experience most of us know that rules often lead us to reluctantly accept or even reject things and people at times when our inner-being is wanting to express and act in the opposite way. It is an old and outdated idea that mature humans need these sharp limiting idea-forms in order to bring harmony to life. When one takes the time to dissect, inspect, and bring their consciousness towards their true inner-selfs they will find that a majority of the time it is intuitively guiding them to what is subjectively and objectively ‘Right’ for their individual selfs. Although trauma and wounds are often covering up and in the way of feeling this intuitive self, you can be sure that these things are only there for a moments time and if one consciously becomes aware of this and sincerely puts in the work to dig through this rubbish, they will consequently reap the benefits in due time.
(POST-SCRIPT: I wanted to keep this writing relatively short so I may sound contradicting or hypocritical to some due to me not being precise in my explanations. Also, I capture all the photos I upload here. This one I particularly enjoyed taking because it speaks to me greatly. I have titled it The Sunlit Path (: )
