Can't get out of my head how much leeway and permission "evil" is getting
When someone gives you advice that is not helpful; That's evil taking advantage of the slack of time to uphold any responsibility.
"That was your advice!" says person A to person B
"That was 2 years ago!" person B responding.
It boggles my mind that humanity has invisibly shed their remembrance of pausing and morality-defining.
These 2 actions are crucial to keeping evil at bay and therefore eliminating it. But people say that because it isn't necessary "to live," its automatically regarded as lower grade and then lower priority. It ends up being done less than is optimal for world peace.
So lets go back to the two ideas and start with one. Pausing.
When you pause, you make yourself invisible. Or you become quiet as a plant. You halt a tempo and you effectively tune into your ears and reading senses to absorb the condition/situation. In this moment you are the most attentive lover/friend. Whatever is being said to you is absorbed in its entirety because you've made the conscious decision to halt your voice from tainting the reality that is in front of you.
But pausing isn't meant forever. After a spiritual trigger is invoked for processing and conducting response is the typical love-friend-community standard of good discourse.
A conversation cannot be one sided. It should be like a circle. Otherwise its not a conversation and don't let people lie to you. A good conversation is when the members of the conversation are speaking fairly, evenly. This is not boring. This is peace inducing, That's why it feels so quiet or creepy. The action of pausing and listening and taking turns in conversation makes for a suddenly outstandingly quiet peaceful conversation. If you stick around for this process it will begin to become enjoyable. The humors are loading..
When people of different cultures come together there, the very fact of different languages makes for different ordering of how ideas, sense of time, relationships, etc. are being communicated between each other. We cannot deny that we are comfortable with our cultures but learning about different cultures is also a beautiful thing. The act of striving to understand another person's happiness (or makings of their) should never be regarded as a thing we shouldn't have time for. It is the literal makings of peace. To pause, is to let the potential for peace exist.
Once you've listened enough, processing should have already been ongoing the topic at hand, whether its story telling, or negotiation / community issue solving. When we start to understand each other very well, we begin to find similarities in each other, and then it can get funny. We start to see each other as equals therefore other "less important" actions such as feeling happiness from some good humor become basically a necessity. We can laugh at ideas because we as a whole understand the humor can be well received. Trust me. Incorporate or indicate the necessity of pausing in your shared conversations and it will eventually lead to better processing and more empathetic, more fun and funny conversation.
Because different cultures are different by nature, we uphold different moralities and different priorities. This is inevitable by the nature of cultures. Basically. if you have different cultures, you will have different moralities and different priorities. Period. The two are synonymous with each other.
I will give you 2 examples of how cultures exhibit differences but then you can no longer play dumb about the differences in cultures.
