Pity the fool

A few years ago a girl asked me why I am so good to everyone. I told her that if I stopped being good I would lose all my faith in this world and this world needs faith, otherwise it would sink and pull with it all the good people that are left as casual victims. There are far too many evil people and far too little of those who care about it. We live in a “democracy” where everyone is equal but some are still more equal than others. Goodness has become a theme, a catch phrase, used to seduce people into thinking someone is actually trying to be nice to them and give them what they need but instead take away that little they have left. They don’t tell you what they ask in return until it’s too late. Goodness is being raped right before our eyes by money grabbing corporations and low moral people who seek to exploit those of easy mind. Being good is seen as weakness. The only reason most people are good is because they need something from you or they sense you might be useful to them in the future. Even God worshipers have lost their ways; being good only to please their gods and gain access into heaven. If you are good just because you are afraid of some all mighty being in the sky will punish your sins are you honestly a good person?  Dalai Lama once said, “The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness” and that appreciation has been lost. People have lost the belief that someone might do something good for them just for the sake of goodness. And you can’t blame them after being fooled so many times. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
