There are some people who are so uprightious and heavenly bound that they are truly no earthly good. Some people spend so much energy talking about other’s so-called defects that you would think they had never made mistakes, never lied, never cheated, alway paid every bill on time, always gave 100 percent at work, always cleaned their houses, never smoked a joint, never had a beer–the list goes on. But if we look into these peoples closets, we would find that they have experienced many of the same issues that they spend 90 percent of their time talking, complaining, gossiping, and shaking their heads about.
Now, normally, I can ignore all these rants and hypocracies; but today – I’m just fed up from the head up. These people seem to get a joy out of others miseries and mistakes in life. And then, the phase that just eats me up is “I would never . . . . ” I find those I would never people usually are suffering from selected amnesia or those same demons for which they never would are sure to come into existence one day.
Now, I’m not talking about people who talk every now and then, or comment on news worthy events. No I’m talking about the vicious gossipers who smile in your face–smile in everyone’s face–only to start the down talking the moment you leave the room or are off the phone. I’m talking about those folks who never have anything good to say about anyone, but can always point out how someone is headed down the wrong path or going to hell in a hay basket. What the hell is hell in a hay basket?
I just feel that if these so called “good people” would extend half of the energy they use talking about other’s misdeeds helping peole overcome their problems, then the world would be a far better place.
We all have our own demons to conquer. All of us grow at different rates; and we all learn some things faster than other things. We don’t all even want the same things others want. We don’t have the same belief’s as everyone else. These unique traits make us human. Here’s some food for thought . . .
Today, in a town near you, there is an upstanding deacon of the church who is a child molester – yet he preaches being upright all the time.
Today, in a town near you, there is a gay basher who loves to look at gay porn and practices homosexuality on the down low. (I know one personally).
Today, in a town near you, there is a Christian who would never dream of helping a homeless man or woman – unless of course that person came inside of the church.
Today, in a town near you, there is a woman who constantly talks about the youth of today and how “bad and stupid they are.” This same woman failed to raise her own children because she gave birth to her first one at 14.
Today, in a town near your, there is a man who constantly accuses his wife of flirting; yet he has encountered numerous affairs.
Today, in a town near you, there is an upstanding citizen, who will be arrested for domestic abuse.
Today, in a town near you, there is a teenager who is contemplating suicide because of mean, irresponsible gossip.
We should always remember the golden rule; do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Because when we don’t, those demons that we never could imagine facing, might just come to bite us!
Peace, Light and Love,
