"It is fantasy to believe that people can disappoint you. The only thing people can do is what they can do.
They may say they can do something else. They may want to do something else, particularly if that something else will please someone they hold in high regard. We go merrily along with people, believing they will do what they say, even when their track record, demonstrated inability, or exhibited lack of interest tells us otherwise.
In the end, we say they disappointed us.
No. We are disappointed that we put our faith in this person despite our better judgment.
"The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves."
*Side note:I'm trying to figure out why, when I post a "Ponderable", there are so many hits on it. Help me out with that by perhaps leaving a comment...
"Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your ownself-transformation."
Nothing here specifically reflects on someone unless I call them out by name. Instead, it is just a collection of stuff I think is funny, or find interesting. If you are offended, that is about you and not about me.
