“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.”– Lao-Tzu
Why is there evil in the world? Humans have been asking this question for what feels like eons, and people seem to turn to theology and sacred texts for answers. If we take a look at the biblical story of evil we would read about Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruit and reaching a state of clarity. Christians believe that this was the moment all disobedience, misfortunes, and anarchy broke loose, but yet even cast out of the garden of eden they both started a farm and a family and made the most out of each day.
On a less biblical note, I personally believe that everyone has kindness inside them somewhere, but over the years we bury it and make up absurd falsities that you can’t make it in life unless you face it head on with brute force and in the words of Dolly Parton with “A mean streak a half a mile wide”. I will preach this until the day I die, compassion is the only way! No matter how badly someone treats or aggravates you, they deserve equal or more respect than the Dalai Lama or Aretha Franklin.
I hope this short message inspires you all,
Waiting for your judgement,
