You’re wrong.

You’re wrong.

You don’t know anything.

You can’t.

Nobody does.

There is no one, not one person that has ever been born of this earth, that has the perspective, knowledge, and experience to make accurate judgments about the world around them.  How could you anyway?

Face it – you don’t know shit about anything.  You don’t know the texture of your lover’s skin.  You’ve never seen the true hues of her eyes.  You’ve never even seen the world as it actually is.  You perceive them a certain way – you know how each of these things is to yourself, but you have never seen the truth.  If you did, you’d think it was a lie, most likely.

It’s not your fault, it’s not anyone’s fault.  We all do it.  Not a one of us will ever be able to know.  We can only think, and act on what we think.  We have to judge, to trust, to decide.  There is no book that will give you the answers, there is no old guru that can lead you down the true path, especially not those who claim to have the answers. These things can help, can give you snippets and disorganized bits, but in the end you have nothing more than yourself, your wits, knowledge, experiences, and morals to guide you.  Somehow, you have to navigate this whole world, with all it’s swirling confusion, injustice, unanswerables, and find your own  route.

Fucked up, isn’t it?

Don’t feel bad though – it’s not like you’re the first one to have to do this.  Nobody in human history has ever had those things; no king, emperor, pharaoh, garbage man, drug addled homeless bum, or sex worker has!  Truth is, they have exactly what you do, which is nothing but the means, ability, and responsibility to live in any fashion you choose.  Take it as a challenge, recoil in dispair, or ignore it and keep trusting those people who tell you what’s best for you – after all, they must have a better answer than you do, right?

Wrong.
