Mud slinging

03 July 2012, 07:31

I am wondering; are there only two issues important enough to comment on?

All Sorts Religions vs Scientists vs All kinds of Thiests

Apartheid vs Black/White vs Racists vs Regimes vs Laws vs Change

In both cases we drop to terrible depths of disgusting behaviour dumping on those who do not think/believe what we do, in stead of living our truth. A good example reaches more people positively than our overstated rants.

It is important to remember that the things that press our hot buttons most are the things we have to rectify in our own lives. We look straight into a mirror every time we point a finger or judge another. The same goes for blame; blaming others implies we are victims. We confirm our victim-hood every time we neglect to take responsibility for our current state of being. This does not imply that people were or are not hurt. But it insinuates that you have a choice of staying down or getting up.

By slinging mud at others we get our own hands dirty.

If we all looked forward, focused on the big picture and strove to a goal that will improve our situation, we will encourage others to buy into a future worth working for. Charity begins at home. Does it really matter what you believe or what happened in the past? We are in the business of living. When you look after yourself you will have enough to share.

A good example reaches more people positively than our overstated rants.

Employees deserve decent salaries...

It is so sad that after 22 years into democracy, there are still companies that exploit their workers financially. They deserve better than food and beverages. Read more...

Nursing is more than just a job

The nursing profession has always been regarded as a calling, and there are many wonderful people who still feel that way and are caring and compassionate in the performance of their jobs . Tragically though, for far too many who qualify as nurses, it is simply a job.  Read more...

Zuma is above the ANC

He has in the past managed to survive a number of motions of no confidence levelled against him. The big question is: how long is Zuma going to keep on surviving the call for him to step down as president?  Read more...
