The Best Way to Go
Guest Post by Dick Warn
Almost everyone begins their journey through life hoping to find happiness and peace of mind, but how many actually make the grade? Some people say it’s 20%, while others believe it is more like 3%. Success isn’t truly successful unless it contains peace of mind and self-acceptance. Therefore I agree with the 3% people.
Where I erred for many years was in not doing what should be done when it needed to be done. I knew better, but I didn’t do better. I was a master at dodging unpleasant tasks by focusing on busy work. However, as my dear friend, Dr. Kenneth McFarland, said, “The right way is rarely easy, and the easy way is rarely right.”
This reminds me of a maturity factor; we are not mature until we are willing to do what needs to be done, whether we like it or not. Universal truths exist that cannot be ignored, yet thousands of obese adults are committing suicide on an installment plan, one “Big Mac” at a time. Obesity is a killer, but not the only way people shorten their life.
We have schools where no child is allowed to fail, movies that glorify crime, video games that inspire young minds to kill, and large bars with huge parking lots. What became of the law of cause and effect, the Golden Rule, and all other universal truths? Society has drifted so far from reality that many adults are like children playing with matches and razor blades.
Two vital pieces that seem to be missing are truth and honesty. These two drive people to live in harmony with timeless truths. No “new” truths truly exist.
Right now, the best way for society to go is back to the basics.
