On Laws and Rules:

I have often felt that so many messages posted on media attempt to set rules for my life.

Nearly all of my life there have been those who have set down rules for me; parents, teachers, employers, religion, just to name a few. Now here are folks on media doing the same thing!

I submitted to the slavery of following rules until one day, I discovered that I’m free to make up my own mind on anything at all. I don’t need rules to do that for me.

Now nobody sets the rules for my life but I and I design my own life.

I found out that inside of me there is a moral assessor and if I listen carefully to the assessor’s voice I can discern which rule is morally beneficial and which is not, yippee!

Aaah, I know what you thinking…. What about the law, is that not a rule?

You might be surprised to know there is a difference between laws and rules.

Laws are ratified in parliament or senate, rules arise from tradition and customs in our society.

If being a member of an organization requires me to follow their rules and it suits me to belong to that organization, I follow their rules, otherwise, I don’t join them.

Oh the sweet fragrance of freedom to decide.
