Time passes each day and I can't help but look at how the world has changed. The most interesting thing, though, is how the fact of whether the change is good or bad changes from day to day. At one moment a loss may seem terrible, and we morn. Yet, later on, we may look at where we are and notice how, without that loss, we may very well not have a lot of what we do.
Love is lost and found, money rising and falling, happiness a fickle friend.
Then is our life ever truly good or bad? Can such terms ever be truly assigned to a situation if it is known that the feelings about that situation will eventually change? It is a thought that puzzles me, and, for that reason, decisions can seem so hard to make! For to lose something now leaves room for something else to be gained later on. One can never know what good or bad can come from it, yet he must choose for that moment specifically to help that moment specifically.
Thus, when one thinks of it, they truly do always live in the moment. No decision is really wrong or right but, rather, wrong or right in context to the moment when that decision was made. Or...no...that would not be it. Rather than a decision never being wrong or right, a decision can never be known to be wrong or right, because every single action continues to act on the future from the moment it was made-it gives a sort of domino effect.
To choose not to walk somewhere causes you not to be seen-and maybe not to have a meeting. It gives you a few more moments in the day. Thus, your conscious and subconscious thought is altered, meaning that the transition made thereafter will also be altered, and so on and so forth, doing the same also with those around you. And thus every action, in a way, is eternal, and continues to affect the world even in only slight ways.
And thus, because of this effect we should never know just what an action does and, therefore, we can never know whether in the end an action will be 'good' (i.e., causes more pleasurable experiences for people and is healthier for the world) or bad.
Does this then mean that it matter not what a person does? Soemthing within my soul tells me no, a fact grown partially from the fact, no doubt, that I am a religious person and beleive that the best way to tell what willhelp the most is by following God's plan. Yet, not all are religious, and thus half the world should not be causing a ruckus for the rest within it. Thus, it must be said that though we shall never know whether an action truly ends good or badly, we can know a portion of its affects and, as aforementioned, its affect in context to the current moment (at least to a point) and should follow it as such. This, in a way, is the purpose or morality. It is an attempt to find a way where we can manipulate actions so that they are able to cause the greatest amount of good and how we try to discover how we may best guess the outcome of our actions and allign them as such-i.e., how we can choose an action in context to the moment that will cause the greatest affect totally in context to time at its entirety.
