What is ethical in this modern day and age. I’ve been pondering this thought in my head for the past 10 to 15 minutes and have come to a very odd conclusion. Ethical thinking is completely subjective to each individual someone who may be branded as heartless might react entirely different to a easier situation than a person who sobs over missing the bus. It’s all fluid but everyone is all lost and nothing is perfect.
There have been times where I have been unethical and it has ended IN sheer murdar and sadness and literal scenes of paranoia where all the birds in the world fly after me. SO MY ethical question IS. What is going to happen to those people who are currently or have been unethical towards ME. I want to see this karmatic ( new word lads) scale and the balances and unbalances of each and every person in my immediate distance. I want to know that the girl dropped her mug of tea in the canteen cause the night before she told a boy to fuck off cause he has an ugly mug of a face.
More IMPORTANTLY I want to see exactly where I lie on the scale and if I can expect more bad karma to swing my way before my balance is restored. It would be entirely helpful to me if I could see the karmatic influences my actions have like in a video game where the hero turns blue for good and red for bad! THAT way I can truly find out if what I am doing will have a positive or negative outcome!
Pop Quiz: Imagine you feel like you are being slightly or HECK entirely used by somebody that you care about quite a big deal. AND THEY know this AND you have expressed this idea on multiple occasions YET the occasions continue to occur but you don’t exactly care because it is a nice distraction from the impending doom of your reality.
That’s not my question! What my question is IS WHAT if YOU are the one who is using them! Imagine think about any situation you are in and reverse it back! I thought about this earlier and came to the conclusion that neither is a rotten egg in this situation! How did I come to this ethical conclusion in this ethical questioning simply by visualising both parties in the following scenarios:
We are both Swan’s who have flown into a digger ( A large machine operated to remove large mounds of EARTH from the ground ) The DOOR has shut entirely and the Swan is just squawking and pressing random buttons while the outside machinery destroys EVERYTHING.
In layman terms We have no idea WHAT we are doing and it isn’t all calculated by some masterplan. Imagine not having ulterior motives towards someone and that you literally just enjoy their company cause they are a breath of fresh air and someone you never would imagine having a friendship with. I get in my head sometimes with all this talk of couples and friends with benefits and just friends and acquaintances and what about your man. WHEN in reality the more time I think about said person in question using me the less time I spend chilling out and literally going where the spinning planet takes me.
This all came into context for me the other morning when a potential derailing of my day turned into a moment of power onto myself. A simple wave of acknowledgement brought me such joy into the factor of my personality I don’t often get to recognise, that power is my ability to forgive and reconcile with certain events in my life that quite often didn’t end how I envisioned . It put everything into perspective for me.
And this leads me to the ethical questioning of myself! in tandem with the brief statement above I have came to realise a eureka moment. Don’t be projecting the present its unhealthy YES I have felt a tad used by certain elements in my life but thinking about it fluidly instead of structurally can change the ethicality of an entire evening.
Yes you have had a brilliant night with someone and it may never happen again, why should you hate them for that reason and push this you lead me on attitude towards them. Think about the ignorance in the dancing, the teasing and the testing of the waters. The plunge. The vibrations in the floor that made you feel fuzzy. The synchronicity of movements. The I can’t believe I am being the literal definition of gay in public with you and not care about the passing glances from the commonfolks. Do not think of the ethical questioning. Think of the moments that had been shared and locked up into your subconscious forever to be looked back on in the long line of dizzy nights out that are projected in your future.
Don’t think of the ethical questioning.
Think of how fucking stupid you must have looked being embraced in a room full of people while at the same time feeling like it was just me and what I held in my skinny arms.
