Nothing is free, not even love and kindness. There're just too many things that can happen in life. Too many emotions. Too much chaos. It's not
butterflies and rainbows. One moment everyone is relaxed and the next everyone is panicking because there's a major earthquake. Everyone is calm and
then some dumb**** saunters in unknowingly and breaks up the spiritual feeling and somebody gets angry. You love the cat and you're happy and you're
holding it closely, gently rubbing your face on its head. Then you trip on a rock and drop him and his back slaps against a boulder and his spine
shatters. He's euthanised. You love your mom with all your heart, but she doesn't always love you in the same kind of way because you're gay. You love
your girlfriend, but she cheats on you anyway.
Your mistake is loving the ideal and not the reality.
Life is love and hate and joy and tragedy and life and death and honesty and cheating.
Life is everything. The good and the bad!
You either love life for everything it's or you pick it apart and love only what you want to.
Maybe I see things differently because I don't see feelings or people; I see systems. My mind is not about emotions. For me, everything is a complex
system interacting with others.
I see a system that's unimaginably complex and we're like ants on an ant hill. So when someone comes out and is all self-righteous and holy I just
think they're talking too much.
Yes, we have to act to do what we feel is right. Sometimes it'll be a good choice. Sometimes it won't be. And sometimes the only thing that matters is
that we're still alive.
But from afar, we're as clueless and confused as a hill of ants.
From my perspective, good or evil, whoever, we're all roughly equal. I mean, I can examine each human under a microscope and find differences in the
same way that I can see differences between ants, but ultimately, these differences blur and really make no difference to me in the end. We're
homosapien, basically. We live on this planet in this star system in this galaxy in this universe... etc. If anything is evil, it's reality itself.
But it's hard to hate reality because it lacks a greater context.
