Naivety & Trust

Here again, deeply dissatisfied, could that feeling get any more predictable?  What’s the point of frustration? It only chokes the potential out of seeing any potential ahead. There’s a river that flows, it’s annoying when people throw their junk in it and other’s speak as though the junk is not there floating and getting in the way. If the junk is left it doesn’t clear itself, it’s annoying that other’s have to clear it up when they should be focusing on more important things. Yet the one’s who dumped it are nowhere to be found, they probably profited from dumping it too. Seems to make them smile that they can get away with it and others would be stupid enough to clear it. Oh to be void of having morals, must be an easy life of emptiness.

What do they see in the mirror those people, the one’s void of morals?
I would love to gain some more insight on how they see themselves and the future of this short-cutting. I would also love to find a work-around for avoiding it all, it really gets on my nerves. Who needs them and what use are they to anyone? Just a pain in the rear, hopeless, useless idiots, preaching about how clever they are to have got somewhere faster. Anyone of sense can see these people are buffoons, we tolerate them out of good will and kindness for humanity. Otherwise, we’d take them out of existence with no regard or morals.

What about naivety and trust?
That topic too is also jarring on my nerves, the forever hopefuls of casting a magic spell over someone blatantly playing a game on their naivety and trust. Must I/we/anyone become involved or be affected by the consequences of these play outs?

What is the answer?
I’ve had enough of tolerating, not up for taking people out, nor for being affected by the reverberations of stupidity or naivety. A simple solution would be good, I’d like to get back to having a life beyond pointless disruption celebrating how to profit quickly by trashing everything of value and integrity.  Easier said than done, at every turn is another trying their luck in profiting quickly. This needs more thought.

Slow in Comparison

plate-spinner
As the developed world progresses at the speed of knots, burning through more resources and energy than conceivable, a change occurs. Within that developed world is a person who stopped for a moment to think. That person is me, I know there are more people than me who have stopped to think, but it is hard to see them through all the progress whizzing. It is even harder to connect with them when stopping to think on your own for a while. Because you need to be on your own for a while to stop and think. Best anyone can do is tag their thinking so they may connect through the bustle of progress, whilst nudging slowly forwards themselves. Maybe at a point further forward it will all connect?

There are personal concerns and ideals and there are personal priorities that need addressing every day. In relation to the personal ideals and priorities assigned to the individual, there are also collective concerns, ideals and priorities running parallel to the individual existence. Spinning plates, the metaphor to signify this juggling act of balance. Too many plates to spin is where it all goes wrong in having time to stop and think. Sometimes a person has to take all the plates down and work out a better way to arrange and spin them all again.

Personally, I took all my plates down about four years ago, took a long time to take many down, they were glued under contracts and commitments to the sticks they were spinning on. Some of those plates even had to be forcefully broken to take them down. This is where the thinking comes in, I didn’t think before putting up many of those plates to be spun in my balancing act. Never realised they would be so hard to take down when or if I wished to. What I managed to do was enslave myself to be spinning, with no control over how fast that spinning had to go to keep up with progress. Now I have less plates on my rack to spin, it’s easier to see others spinning theirs, but I’m ready to put a few more plates up. The thinking is about which ones to put up and how easy they would be to take down in the future. Also not to end up enslaved again in the spinning making me unproductive with my time.  Having spent the time to work out my personal concerns and ideals, these are the qualifier for any plate that goes up on the rack.  The approach is to make it a long-term bigger plate, with a thicker stick, rather than dozens of small ones that decrease productivity. This is where I may look slow in comparison, but I’m designing my own plates and sticks.
