'There's what we do, and there is what we don't do.'

slated in mused at 10:46 am

There is no such thing as right and wrong —

There is no ‘right time’ to do most things —

“There’s what we do, and there is what we don’t do.”

So then. Without knowing this, we can continue to wait, and hope for things to happen or show us the way on their own… maybe if we’re just patient and pay attention, we’ll act alright when the right time or the right choice comes. and maybe that’s pretty good.

But for those for who “Pretty good isn’t good enough”, hoping against new understanding seems rather unacceptable.

Having noticed the fact that things happen according to our choices and our actions, or, by those same means, happen not at all, then the excuse of ignorance and blind faith/hope for decisions to make themselves for us is reasonably lost.

Also, we’re not patient. If we were, then most of this would hardly matter. We can be patient. We will be, to a fair extent. But patience laid in wait and action laced with patience make all the difference.

“Living is a thing you do, now or never —which do you?” ~Piet Hein

what we do, and what we don’t do…
we do or we don’t…

that’s one choice. one necessary decision/action.

the thing that holds us up, tho, both in making that necessary choice to do or not, and then in following through and making it true or not, is deciding what, precisely, we mean to do (or don’t).

chicken and egg… you decide to, and then figure out exactly what? or figure out exactly what, and then decide to?

if you want to be sure of a successful poultry farm, i’d buy strong stocks of both chickens and eggs.
