Robin Hood is an archetypal hero; “steal from the rich and
give to the poor”, in today’s age it has become steal from the poor and keep
it. George Washington is one as well, “I can't tell a lie” was his answer when he cut down the cheery tree;
today officials seem to think lying is just part of what you have to do. “Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you” has become do unto others
before they do unto you. I went to a recent Occupy Wall street meeting the
other day and was shocked by people who took issue with the discussions on
morals (issues of right and wrong and to
how individual people should behave), somehow they differ than ethics. (The study of moral standards and how they
affect conduct). I would ask; Who IS teaching human behavior these days?
A fundamental question
is when is it enough? Enough is when we begin enjoying what we spent our
lives acquiring, enough is when begin to teach what we have spent our lives
learning, and enough is when we begin to share allowing others to expand in new
directions. There is endless potential still to be explored; there is always
more than enough.
