Karmic Chaos

Observing the behaviour of some of the people around me, I marvel at their ability to do certain things. Things I consider heinous, or at best, unforgivable - with complete nonchalance, a casual flick of the wrist, a flash of eyes, a half-contemptuous turn.

And suddenly wonder: What if my conception of things is entirely, irrevocably wrong? What if I'm the stupid one, unable to comprehend that the path I want to be on can be reached only by going through a thick web of dishonesty?

Worse, what if they're "right"? What if "lying" and "cheating" are in fact "good"? Rather like Calvin's dream of a Santa who gives toys only to naughty kids? What if my karma is upside down, inside out, right-side wrong?

Ooh, that would be perfect given the sinful shameless lives we lead.....:)

BTW, what heinous crime which made your blood boil led to this outburst?

These days, only one person's heinous and unforgivable acts get on my nerves.

i think like this too sometimes. in less violent terms, but I do. what if my perceptions and beliefs (not necessarily principles) are transient? then what huh?

who is the mysterious one person, proggs

Seriously... imagine. If everything you always thought turned out to be rubbish. Much like the world might have felt when Copernicus and Galileo came along. The world turning over on its head... Frightening and fascinating at the same time.

And, ummm, let's not get into the "Who" - 'snot important. But I'm fascinated by the way this person operates... the same way one finds oneself drawn to the goriest TV programmes...

There's always a 'they', have you noticed? But my thoughts run along much the same lines. As for being back, well, so far so good.

Us and them... Black and Blue. Always. *sigh*
