Just a heads up, this might seem cold hearted! Then again, the point of this post is varied interpretation.
I find there doesn't seem to be a straight answer for what is considered right or wrong. People have different interpretations, and it seems to me
that this also one way our legal system seems so flawed. To me, the way to get rid of problems is education, not punishment. The idea of jail is to
temporarily remove a problematic person, and to also instill this fear of punishment. Any real change of their behaviour I believe would be due to
their own contemplation.
So I say this, "criminals", or those who make "mistakes".. or cause chaos, upset the balance, or go against our morality, should be educated, not
punished. I think to see the value in this however, we need to as a society feel the need for evolution, and to accept an idea such as
So we need to help share the wisdom so such mistakes could be avoided, mistakes we deem as criminal activities. But what constitutes a mistake?
I look at it this way... everything we do, is a mistake, and everything we do also isn't a mistake. What I mean is it's actually kind of irrelevant.
We can only do what we are able to do at the time. We act on the best of our knowledge, experience, and state of mind. It directly reflects our
effects on the world around us.
For instance... Something I may have done 5 years ago, I probably thought I handled pretty well, but since then I have changed as a person. I have
become wiser and now have a different perspective on life. I can basically look to every action of the past as a mistake, because now I would do it
The point is, this seems to be the very description of the time reality. That is, while living in the moment, everything in the past seems irrelevant
in the sense that we dissassociate with it more and more as we learn. Why cling to the past when we know we wouldn't do the same now? It serves as a
reminder, as an affirmation of our progression.
I think we have to handle each others "mistakes", with patience, understanding and ecuation, and humility. Some people don't learn as fast. Some
people we think just can't be fixed. Learning is a process, it doesn't happen instantly. Again, this to me is the time reality...If we were to chart
our life as a frequency...and if we were to be free of time, learning would come instantly, but it would still have a progression. There is still the
movement of the energy, the patterns from point A to B.
We will learn, but while we experience time, it can seem hopeless.
