If there is indeed some grand benevolence that orders existence, it has made its design cryptic and contentious.  There are countless “correct” ways to express my belief/disbelief of it.

But what seems readily evident to me is that there is great reward in functioning well, and passing the fruits of that function onto others.  Whenever I do that, the question of whether there’s a grand benevolence becomes null and void to me.  For if it exists, I imagine it would endorse that conduct, and if it doesn’t….

Well, at least I’M pleased with the results.

  1. I thought you would enjoy a quote from Johnny Cash, “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”
