Do you have it within yourself to do something unspeakable?
I guess. It wouldn't be fine to me though, if I started having what I consider evil thoughts.
You started by saying "I guess". Then there was a "though"... which to me, imho, means you could be a stinker if provoked.
I did! Are you familiar with the battle of the two wolves story? I like it a lot, and see the truth and wisdom of it.
Damn! Another obligation I'm disinclined to perform? do" ... :(
But, for you, I'll read it.
No, you are not "obligated" to read it. Here it is anyway, just in case you're interested:
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life:
*“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil–he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you–and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.” *
Two wolves that inhabit your soul,
Will fight for a dominant role.
The one that succeeds,
As the struggle proceeds,
Is the one that you feed and enroll.
Your limericks are nonpareil. I want to see you construct a crossword puzzle. I'm sure you can solve them no prob... try constructing one :)
This is a friendly challenge.
Sorry, that would be too time consuming. I already waste too much.
i was teasing you, P... gently but not gently enuff I guess. And, I am always interested in what you have to say. You never disappoint :)
I figured you were, F. "Gently enuff"....oh brother.
Oh or on?
There...I fixed the typo.
I agree that it's better for a person to have evil thoughts than to commit evil deeds.
However I would argue that the majority of humans do not regularly have truly evil thoughts.
Not regularly and not truly evil... yup, that narrows it down substantially .
Do I??? I might be America's Sweetheart but when push comes to shove in order to protect myself or my children...let's just say I wouldn't think twice.
What puzzles me is why your life is filled with constant turmoil. Why is this - at the age of 40 and considering your prodigious intellect - still a problem?
Because I am a straight up dumbass who apparently lets it happen. I don't want the bs...I actually enjoy the days where there isn't anything going on
You are NOT a dumb ass. You want to see the best in people and you want them to see the best in you... but... life just ain't that simple. et cetera et cetera my love
Oh I stopped looking for the good in people a long time ago.
