Whether you are talking about a certain ritual, demeanor, food preference or choice of clothing someone had to think of it to begin with. I do not believe that the cave dwellers sat around the cave saying that they were not going to hunt for food today because they were fasting due to a religious preference and that they were afraid of what the neighbors would say. It all boils down to very basic truths, you eat to survive, dress to survive, and even assimilate to survive.
rambling on good and evil
From what history has told, the conflicts between good and evil have been raging since the dawn of man. There comes a time in every person’s life that the barriers have fallen and good and evil have comingled. Facing the decision of leading a good and righteous way of life or diving into dark unholy paths, it lends itself to be a moral journey of the self and the surroundings. Moreover, it is unknown what the right path may truly be. The notion of good and evil is not a black and white debate due to all of the seemingly gray vantage points. You can find truths in another person’s ideology based on how society generally conceives them. You do not have the option of a systematic polling to generalize if in your life good or evil will prevail. Thou there is loss of innocence and fallacies in the overall nature of people, the journey to self-realization over honorable life and malevolent intent are a path forked with temptation and turmoil.
on to the subject of work
The journeys we as humans take over our lifetimes are all a matter of choices. As we age, our daily decisions shape the overall outcome of our collective destinies. Gathering our personal views, our beliefs, and our general knowledge of what is right and wrong gives us the ability to form the decisions that shape our destinies and the fates of the people around us.
When you look at the dedication that people, give to their professions you see how they form into the jobs they do. Whether it is the physical formation, or a mental one you can tell how a job has changed anyone who has done it long enough. You can look at a person’s hands and if they are worn, rough and weathered, you know that they more than likely have been laborers of some sort. Just as you can stand on the sidewalks of the city, watch the people going by, and tell that this one may work in an office or that one works in a restaurant just by the way, they are dressed or how they carry themselves. Forming into the workforce is a lifetime career and forming into the position you hold evolves with time. In many cases, there are professions in which the worker joins that can physically disfigure and mentally scar.
The general conclusion that I was able to develop is that time may change the severity of the conditions of work but it is not going to stop the pains of labor or the social status that a particular position may hold. In order to do our jobs well, we humans conform and transmute to adapt to what our occupation may require. When we enter the work force, we are unknowingly giving ourselves over to the force of work.
Life is formidable and death is inevitable but as humans, we have learned or conditioned ourselves to be less than tolerant of such unchangeable facts. The ability to either fight against aging or the frailty of our youth being unnoticed is a common occurrence in our society. We seem to believe that nothing harmful could happen to our young or that they will always be there but the truth is that those we hold so dear to our hearts and our expectations of our children’s futures are only possibilities of what may happen. The fact is that we do not have a written guarantee of the health and safety of our children and youth or the longevity of our aging. The undeniable fact is that death happens to every living being. I have seen more than a fair share of funerals and births of love ones brought into this world and taken out and too many times before they really had a chance to live.
The rule in a society governed by a theocracy and allowed to punish with extremist behavior will in turn produce an ill-fated foreboding towards uninhibited resolve, leaving the free willed condemned without compromise.
