Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Blahginess!

Bipolar thinking in a Bipolar world.

To those of you who say “what you see is what you get” in regards to this world you’re wrong. I have first hand account of the fact that there is much more to this world than meets the eye and that as humans we have free will in making decisions on a daily basis.

There are two people at this very moment walking through similar circumstances (actually, based on statistics there are untold millions around the world). Each of them have a past and a personality that have marked their experiences as unique to themselves. However, each of them have, at this point, chosen divergent paths. One chooses to put aside behavior that is harmful and destructive while the other remains undecided but continues to live life like always.

It is the quintessential battle between right and wrong, between good and evil. There is no other explanation and if there is I find it lacking (so far).

So explain to me how one can go through life completely oblivious to the fact that there are forces of good and evil at work in this world? How do you explain these things away?

    I am with you, there is way too much evidence of good and evil to say they don’t exist. I have also heard of the battle between “truth and lies” makes the good and evil a tiny bit more specific since God is truth and satan is the “father of lies”.

    I have seen people try and stay distracted and live in the future to combat their misery. I don’t see any hope other than trusting God to save us from the evil in the world and the evil in ourselves.

    Seed with life in it will not blame the dirty mud around but grows into a plant to produce fruits; while the hardened and lifeless stone crombles down over a period to become a aprt of the mud.

    Don’t blame the darkeness around as the blaming is of no use. If you want to move ahead, light a lamp to see the world around. Otherwise, grope in darkness.

    K.S.G.–I didn’t mean to come across as blaming the darkness of this world, in fact I was hoping for quite the opposite. I was trying to point out that in fact there is darkness (evil, Satan, however you may call it) actively working in this world. I believe too many of us are convinced or ignorant of this truth and that creates a lot of frustration and confusion as we walk through life. Thanks for the comment…look forward to hearing more.
