Lie Like You Mean It

every lie is a truth in the making. whether or not you choose to believe is entirely up to you.

on some occasions, people prefer to hold on to a lie. not because they are unaware of the truth but because the truth may sometimes be too bitter to swallow.

and living in your own fictionalized reality is often an escape from what reality really is – harsh, cruel, and unforgiving.

now i’m not saying that there isn’t any good left to look forward to in the world. it’s just that it’s hard to see the bigger picture when your view is obscured with a huge pile of crap.

i know that a lie will always be a lie, no matter what its end may be. still, every now and then we need to feel the awesomeness that goes along with a win. it may not be as glorified as doing something realistically epic, but hey, we’re human and we need to feel the love (hahaha ;p).

if you’re grossly in opposition to the idea of being lied to, then think about this…

why do people take the time to read volumes of literature?

and why would they wait in line at the theaters for a reasonably kick-ass movie like ..”Iron Man”?

why?!…

because people need to dream.

and dreams are simply  made-up realities, so essentially, they aren’t any different from lies. (semantics… pffft… hahaha).

you can choose to be whoever you want to be and feel whatever you want to feel. but just be careful not to drive yourself over the edge (because there is a limit to how delusional one can get before being clinically diagnosed… hehehe)

and when it comes to lies, it isn’t as easy as black and white. rather, it’s more like trying to figure out which one has the lighter shade of gray (and if you’re color blind… then… you’re pretty much f***ed… hahaha).

but i won’t stop you from trying… hahaha…

“Lie to me…”

The Pariah

Respect is what I believe to be a really important value that people need to possess in order to get by in life…  I’m mean… in today’s society, what matters most is the view of the majority… deeming those who see the world differently as deviants or even as heretics just seems to be the trend for those who don’t choose to mingle and conform… and to think that modern day majorities proclaim themselves to be just… fair… and free from coercion… now that’s just a load of bull

Whatever happened to free will?! Personally, I’ll believe in what I want to believe… and not to be told otherwise… why is this so hard to understand? I mean I’m not doing anyone harm so what the hell’s wrong with my way of thinking?! My God who favors partying and lallygagging is no different than your God  who wants you to spread his word of peace and humility… seriously… I’m being serious (and not in a blasphemous kinda way… ;3)… think about it… why is there a God in the first place?

You might be thinking… because He’s the one responsible for creating blah blah blah…

Now I’m not saying that that’s wrong… but I just want you to think a little deeper…

Humans are innately hopeful beings… hence they have to believe in something or someone who makes the world go ’round… else… they will feel lost or are left wondering… “what’s the point?”… “what’s my point?” (now the second phrase may have been a little off but I just couldn’t find the right words that rhymed to make my point… haha… ahh the redundancy… hahaha… ;3)

So when you really really really think about it… It doesn’t matter who or what you believe in… what really matters is the believing part… believing that there’s something or someone who’s out there who’s gonna make everything better… (now if I ever find someone who shares my views  then that would just be awesome! Hahaha… ;3)

With this in mind… we should never impose our way of thinking on others… we can only give them insight and hope that they would keep an open mind… because if people choose to levy their ideals on others… it wouldn’t be a surprise if we caught them butting heads in the near future…

Of course there are also some instances when opposing sides don’t equal in their number believers… now that’s a case of bullying the minority… which is really sad because it can express itself in many ways… as little kids in groups… the workplace… or even among status sensitive grownups… in the first place… sorting out who stands where is an insanely annoying task so why bother?

Why can’t a Muslim, Christian, or Atheist party together as friends?

Live and let live… Believe and let believe…
(now I know it’s a bit lame but I’m still hung up on the rhyming part…. Hahaha… ;3)

Those three people can be friends over pizza… work… or even nude beaches for all I care… there’s nothing stopping them from enjoying each other’s company… just so long as they understand that spiritually is unique and personal… and that they should never pull out the “I’m more awesome ‘coz my-God-can-PWN-your-God’s-Arse!” card… haha…

Let’s face it… loving what you believe in too much to the point of forcing others to see things your way is just wrong…

Again… we must remember that the important thing is that you believe in something… regardless of what others are nagging you to conform to…

… … …

I’m spiritually enlightened… but religiously retarded…

Haha… ;3

Back to Prejudice

Pride is neither a sin nor a wrong. I am truly aware that this may be held to contest, but my faith resides on the principle that pride is merely a means to preserve one’s dignity. And although it has often been tantamount to arrogance, not many are aware that pride can be viewed as a manner of discovering one’s self.

To have pride suggests that you are able to discern your individuality. And that you assert your individuality with a strong conviction that you are not as weak or as unintelligible as you assumed yourself to be.  But when pride is coupled with even just a hint of narcissism, this pride will be defunct with rare occasions for amendment.

Fault could be found in one’s pride when others feel that their pride has been overshadowed. This conflict is a natural occurrence among people, and so long as people seek to define themselves, this conflict will continue to exist as they pursue their own truths even when opposed to the truths of others. With this in mind, you would conclude that overlapping prides is nothing more than human nature. And if suppose you would like to end this hollow charade… you would be suggesting an end to what we would call our humanity.

People fight each other not because of their differences but simply because it’s their ill-mannered nature. As cynical as I may come across, that fact of the matter is… playing the bad guy is a helluva LOT easier than playing the role of a saint. And if you would like to prove me wrong then please do so and answer these two queries… “why is that most people choose violence as answer to conflict?”… and “why would they resort to blood-spattered wars and nuclear intimidation instead of peaceful dialogue?”

Simple really…

It’s easier to shoot a gun than to indulge in long futile discussions…

… … …

“Shoot first… ask questions later…”

… … …

ï’m not really pro-war or anything but I just had a lot of time to think some stuff through…
bum… bum… bum… bummmmm… Haha…
