Changing With the Times

It has come time in our existence as the family of man that every person in the free world, mindful, or otherwise, is being motivated to make a choice.  Now it may not be a conscious choosing up of sides, but the state of things as they exist today requires an alignment with either the forces of good, or with those forces detrimental to the greater good.  People can no longer have it both ways.  We can no longer drift back and forth between the two polarities.  One is either for the betterment of the world, and a conduit for positive influence and change (with love, as it were, and with clarity of purpose), or aligned with those of a baser nature in opposition to living in harmony with one another.  Everything in between is becoming irrelevant, and an increasingly difficult path to maintain. 

The world is calling out for firm commitments in our belief systems and in our behavior.  Everything I see, hear, read, and intuit points to that conclusion.   Among the people I know personally it has become obvious.  Some people are restructuring their thoughts, and their behaviors, to conform to the standard they know within to be of good virtue, and some are falling into even greater malevolence, personal indulgence, deceit, and dishonesty, thinking nothing of harming the innocent, and failing to embrace even the capacity for a benevolent life.  The good are getting better, and the bad are getting worse these days.  Just look around with conscious sight and you’ll see the truth of such a statement.  You will awaken to its reality.  In fact, I’ll say it again in case you missed it.  The good are getting better, and the bad are getting worse.  It’s just how it is.  It’s what’s happening, in my world, and in yours.

Thank God for those who are willing to mold and transform themselves into the best people that they can be, inwardly, but clearly visible outwardly as evidenced by their kindness, compassion, thoughtfulness, sobriety, and generosity.  These are the people who are holding sanity precariously in place across our planet.  I hope you’re able to count yourself among them.  It is my hope, not only for your own well-being, but for the survival of decency in our world today as well.

I Prefer A Smile

Ever notice how many women today, and particularly young women,
respond to men now, and to cameras, with an open mouth instead of a smile?
Of course you have, but maybe it has yet to register consciously for you.
Well, it will now.  They open their mouths pretty much on cue,
like baby birds being fed by their mother, or like they’re posing for porn, or something. 
A wide-open mouth has become the standard response for just about any emotion for any situation (humor, joy, excitement, surprise, pleasure, etc.); or to ingratiate oneself with a friend, 
or even a stranger. 
I’ve noticed this trend for about the past five years.  Watch the commercials.  Watch the women on just about any TV program, especially the sit-coms.  Watch the directors directing the women to bend over (so their boobs spill out) and open their mouths.  Watch how women conduct themselves in real-life social situations.
But, of course, we don’t really become the images that the media, and the porn industry, (same difference) bombard us with now, do we?  Of course not!  

The open mouth is, today, what a smile actually used to be. 
And I just want to say that I liked it better when women used to offer a smile rather than a receptacle.    
Sorry, but I’m just reporting what I see.
