About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

No more compassion and no more friendships, just Justice.

Something mind-blowing was shared with me yesterday that help me get over a relatively negative day at work.

I have talked about cutting ethereal ties or cords and how I have cut my cords with some people and also the importance of cleaning out the mental closet in the past.

Well, recently, I started going for this Internal Martial Arts Meditation class. And the teacher said the following in a jist.

The world that we are living in is still finding harmony. And sometime in the near future, justice will be established.

But with the coming of justice, there will be no more compassion and no more friendships.

That may sound really weird and rude and utterly nonsense until it is explained.

When there is justice, everyone is basically equal and everyone respects each other.

According to wikipedia, Compassion is a virtue —one in which the emotional capacities of empathy and sympathy for the suffering of others are regarded as a part of love itself, and a cornerstone of greater social interconnectedness and humanism —foundational to the highest principles in philosophy, society, and personhood.

But what if nobody is suffering. What if everyone is doing well. What if everyone has respect for each other. What if everyone has everything they need.

Then there is no need for compassion. Compassion is somewhat an ego trip to help someone in need, whether out of love or out of pity.

We can still have love. But compassion will go out the door as everyone is the same and I do not need the compassion of others nor will anyone need my compassion.

Next is friendship. There will no longer be friendship when justice comes in. This does not mean we will all be enemies.

Once everyone is equal and there is no other needs, we will have respect for one another. When we have respect for every being, there will not be a need for friendship as it is defined now. We will all technically be equal and we will all have mutual respect.

No more childhood "I do not want to friend you" nonsense.

Again according the the mighty Wikipedia,
Value that is found in friendships is often the result of a friend demonstrating the following on a consistent basis:

  • The tendency to desire what is best for the other
  • Sympathy and empathy
  • Honesty, perhaps in situations where it may be difficult for others to speak the truth, especially in terms of pointing out the perceived faults of one's counterpart
  • Mutual understanding and compassion
  • Trust in one another (able to express feelings - including in relation to the other's actions - without the fear of being judged); able to go to each other for emotional support
  • Positive reciprocity - a relationship is based on equal give and take between the two parties.
What if there was already mutual respect amongst mankind? Friendship will cease to exist as technically, everyone is a friend.
Evryone in the world is your brother or your sister. Father is God, and Mother is Earth.

Father Sky, Mother Earth.

No other ties need to exist. Justice is blind, everyone is the same, everyone is equal, and everyone has mutual respect for one another.

Thank you and I love you.

Take care and be well.
