Daze of our lives...

All sorts of nonsense happens in the course of the day... good, bad, indifferent... whatever. Thoughts spring to mind, shit happens, things work out, but often don't... usually I have no idea of what's going to happen beforehand and perhaps its better that way. Anyway, just a little of what's going on and a way of clearing my mind... Read on at your own risk.

OK, not all that much to tell... just a slightly insane, very tired but reasonably perceptive guy who's life is filled with "why's" and never knowing why...

Again

It's said we should expect the unexpected, but when the unexpected happens it frightens the crap out of you. Bombs explode, words fail and I wonder why it needed to come so far, there are much easier ways of getting a message across.

- Like talking and being honest with each other, for example, and respecting each others views.

- By not putting your own or your own countries interests first, at the expense of others.

- By recognising that all people and cultures are inherently different.

- Counting to ten (or hundred or ten million) when you feel antagonised and work to resolve the basic issues and not just hit out blindly.

- Sharing, not being possessive of something you can't take with you anyway. How can you possess the earth? It'll be around a lot longer than you will, for starters.

Isn't this what it should be about?

That's exactly what I was thinking. If people could just implement those few points the world would be a marvelous place to live in. I think it's going to take a very long time before we get there.

This post really is the truth. A lot could be better in this world if we just stopped thinking about ourselves first but put others first...
