More thoughts on Morality...

We are a crude and depraved breed crawling this earth. And there sure is a thin line between pessimism and seeing things for what they truely are. I stagger back and forth between this line. I dissolve some days into a creature I don't even recognize, but I am sure you all do as well. When I look at us, roming the streets, playing our cards, burning our bridges with a brand of faith with hopes of a new...I wonder. We are a great breed, we can create with our knowledge and sometimes stumble to the top pondering how we managed to become great among all others. Most of us do fail though. We have evolved into such a complexed entity that in our days before we quite the planet we either accept to progress or test the waters and learn the hard way. Morality, today, passes through my thoughts and I have a moments interpretation. Our minds complexities devour us some days delievering us pain and sorrow we almost can not bare, but then we strive to settle. We must claim for ourselves a quality of life that seperates us from the natural beast inside all of us. We are mammals, we are animals struggling to separate from the creatures of the planet. We are Dynamic in our search, in our rises and our falls. When we become static in a sea of routine and give up on eachother we become meaningless, we become empty. We have a right to go a bit insane, to fall over the edge and devour ourselves. Sometimes I think we continue to fool ourselves into thinking we are more than what we are because we can not face the fact that when it is all broken down we are dark and the emptiness inside us all is so deep that we must strive to be something diffrent. We must dream big, we must dream unrealistic sometimes because our full throttle reality of today was once the dreams of tomorrow. We must face the depraved darkness to fully understand where any sort of light may come from, what it means and how to keep it solid and not false....and that my friends can be an unbelieveably beautiful thing....

Is Morality Evolution?

I tend to struggle with morality as of late. I understand the need for it in my environment(society), but other than to keep order and sanity, I do not believe it is something I should view as more than just another survival mechanism. Its needed, but I do believe it needs a bit more grounding. It should be question along with everything else. Endulging in every urge may not be the key, but i will not restrict myself to the damages of yet another cause for higher falsehoods. Our morality depends on our society and yes, you guessed it...religion. Morality and what constitutes as the higher standered is by its very nature warped. I digress in what I believed to be my guidelines, my way of going about things. I by nature, just like you, dynamically progress forward, changing and shattering any structure I may have had the previous day. I can only limit for survival and see the need for limits, but I rarely take anyones word for it. I just by nature am the type that needs to know why, first hand. If I see no reason for limiting I proceed forward with a blind eye. I have learned some very hard lessons, of course, always having to learn things the hard way. Sometime though I become aware of a great deal of bullshit when I test the waters. As a society we have centuries upon centuries of experience to tell us how to proceed, but we also have centuries upon centuries of very old traditions that may be destroying any real dynamic progress in many aspects of our world. We are threatened by our fear of breaking standard. Those who do, whether through accident or through pure passion and strength, may be praised or may become outcasts. We don't see that the effects of what can be great change until years and years sometimes pass. Whether that change is great or shallow, productive or destructive, we are out there, among you...testing the waters...
