morality - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
How much of morality is a sophistry to mask the most basic desires of men and women?
"The thing is, Kid," he said, "most folks are part Jedi and part Sith, so the force has a hard time getting a lock on them. In different situations they switch allegiance and so accidentally make their own cosmic camouflage, which is bad. So, what I'm saying is pick your morality and stick to it in all situations. Be a Jedi. We need more. Come join the team."
Morals aren't morals if you bend them to suit yourself, yet there is a need to be realistic. We animal rights can't depend upon how tasty they are considered to be, or based on their utility to humans. So let's start moving in the right direction with certainty and pride, toward a day when our food needs can be met cleanly and with good conscience. Because the right to liberty, to socialise and lead a natural life is God given to all; so it's up to us to make a society where that can happen.
"Mika, 'morality' is the false horse of our times; empathy is the key. For with enough love to enter the mind of another, to feel their feelings, to join with them from their inside so they can feel warm companionship - this is the true path toward peace and healing. Sure, there are often rocks underfoot, but it is the way into sunlight and warm sands. Trust me."
Is there anything more morally bankrupt than asking kids to be resilient instead of working to create a world where they can be comfortable and happy as themselves?
When I'm feeling triggered the world and everyone it is behind fifty feet of glass. Loving bonds become inaccessible. In this mode I have to take great care not to damage bonds of love, the relationships and people who are everything to my heart and soul. For in time the glass disappears and my love returns. I wish I could stop the triggering, but if I feel unprotected or left to fend for myself it returns - it is survival mode, cold and indifferent. Yet even in these times I am cognisant of my morality. I still make good choices. I can still imagine what the better version of me would want me to do and then carry that out. I can't undo the trauma I've been through, but I can adapt and overcome.
