right is another man’s wrong;

wrong is another man’s right;

peace is another man’s havoc;

 darkness is another man’s light;

heaven is another man’s hell

darkness is another man’s bright

ill is another man’s well

silence is another’s sound

poor is another man’s weath

All that is loss shall be found

Birth is another man’s death

will the circle  ever break…

by and by…Lord…by and by…

perhaps foreverness lies in the the infinate circle; never breaking

forever going around…around…

all that’s given will be taken

all that’s taken must  have been given

all that’s dying is surely living

all who laugh have been crying

all who live are surely  dying

will the circle be unbroken???

by and by Lord…by and by…

Sweet poem Cordie. The cause of much suffering is the unwavering and concrete beliefs, views, and opinions of those who know they are right. Our reality-tunnels are constructed around us, yet many believe they have come to their beliefs through learning, intelligent decision-making, and wisdom.

A baby child is continually being imprinted with cues and reinforcements from parents, family, and others. As it grows, the child’s environment expands allowing for more and more imprinting stimuli to shape their world-view.

We are products of our accumulated thought baggage. Why do people considers themselves American, Christian, liberal, vegetarian, or pacifists? It is by mere coincidence of birth and the cultural/religious/political influence of their immediate network of family and friends.

Disengaging one’s reality-tunnel program and attempting to understand another’s motives, beliefs, and reasoning is the first step to an enlightened tomorrow.
