We all are 100 percent responsible for our thoughts, and actions. It is impossible to control a persons thoughts, and you need a gun to control their actions.

"The unexamined life is not worth living"
Prayer is needed; it forces people to think; although unanswered prayers probably change the world. Why? Well, maybe for one second in time, the person says,
"God did not answer my prayers, what did I do wrong?"
Anticipation of the future, something humans can do.
Well, I spend a lot of time, trying to decide, which humans are better than monkeys? What I mean, do they live a life that has more impact than a monkey? Will they be remembered by their grandchildren?
I believe we can make the world a better place, if nothing else, we can be remembered as a good person, who was kind, and help others.
Or, we can be remembered, no, we try to forget jerks.
Will you be remembered as a person who was kind? Or, will you be remembered for doing kind acts. Or, will you be remembered for doing kind acts, only when someone was watching?
What is the nature of good. Recently, I learned, people do not want to be encourage to live a good life; they seem to think it means God. They do not want to talk about God, sort of funny to me, God can represent good, or kindness, or helping other; it appears that God represents anger, shame, and guilt.
Guilt, shame, and lack of forgiveness means, we cannot live an examined life, because if we really sat down, and examined our lives, its possible, we might say, I am a shit.
As for me, I type away on these Blog post, trying to examine my life, talk is so easy, that without an action, it is just noise.
And for sure, people are noisy.
Do something today that makes the world a better place. This is not doing something to make you look like you are a nice person. God did not want us to tell others when we do something good, because that negates the good deed.
So, I hope you are confused, as confusion is the seeds of clarity, it forces one to think.
