Greetings eIndia. Fair warning, I am in a bit of a mood. Today was not a bad day, but I was quite miserable. Though to be honest there were aspects of the day that I know hit me in a negative way, but I am not ready to deal with those feelings quite yet. Anyways, there is a point to me telling you this.
We are flawed. Each and every one of us. We are not perfect, many of us are quite far removed from that definition. What matters is that we take steps to improve ourselves, that we continue to climb, despite the resistance we face, even if that resistance comes from ourselves. I just recently graduated with honors, and have been promoted at work to a salaried employee. In theory I am doing better in my life than I ever have before, yet I am still miserable. I still have challenges ahead of me, but they are so far removed, that I fail to feel that motivation to act that I did not so long ago.
How does this relate to communism or atheism? I figure that is what most of you are probably asking yourselves right now, and I dont blame you. But to me the connection is clear. Tomorrow morning when I wake up I will be refreshed and attempt to have the best day that I can. I realize that I am in a poor situation, mixed with a great situation, mixed with a what the hell situation haha, but I also realize that any day could be my last. There will be no reward or punishment after I die. I simply need to live my life to enjoy as much of it as possible. I will not hurt others with intent, as that will cause me to feel guilt. I will try to make my life, and everyone around me's, life better. This is a great benefit of not believing in an afterlife, but maintaining a humanistic perspective. Think about how to make the most people happy, and will a religion with dogma really lead you to that happiness?
