|Whatís the secret of life, the one aspect of life people hold on to making life livable? Different people all around the World have different answers however I believe most, if not all, of their answers are alike upon boiling them down to a basic sauce.
Being happy, pleasing themself first before they can assist, help, or please others. People please themselves in as many different ways as stars in the Universe. Naturally there are good and bad methods of pleasing. What one person thinks is good, others might think it perverse.
Itís what makes life so complex. A simple credo of life becomes complex because humans are simply human with emotions, judgments and thoughts which can create friendship and love or discord and hate . ďIím ok, youíre okĒ is simple and basic yet very difficult to attain. Once people achieve it itís even more difficult to maintain.
Happy people, I believe, cause less crimes and wars. Custer didnít charge into battle at Little Bighorn because he or his commanders were happy. I donít know that for a fact yet I think he would have rather been in a more peaceful place.
I am a realist. There will always be disagreement among people, it is who we are. Discord and hate are necessary so we can enjoy friendship and love. Itís the Yin-yang of life.
Thatís the depth of my drugstore philosophy. Coupled with a quarter one couldnít buy a cup of coffee, especially at Starbucks .
