Rules…

I am not a fan of rules. This is of course, not to say that I am against the concept of “right and wrong”. Quite the contrary, as a matter of fact; I view the two as distinctly different. The earlier is conformity thrust upon a group; the latter is a moral decision – very individual at that.

I thought I was upset today by rules. It turned out I was upset by the mindlessness of the enforcement. I felt sorry for the enforcer. To believe that one posses the power to dictate the actions of others… why, that is laughable. It leaves one in quite a quagmire. So focused on others that they become counter-productive and quite stale.

Let them try to enforce; I may not even expel energy to “disobey”. In the end – they are bound by others – I am free to live and choose my reality.
