Purely Tongue-In-Cheek: Human Decency for Dummies, Chapter 1

WARNING: Reading this seriously is not recommended. Reading with a bit of sarcasm, is however recommended. All views are my own, and are not intended towards anyone. This is written with tongue in cheek. Thank you. 

Hello, Human! Welcome to earth!
You might think you're a unique snowflake. So very special, rose petals fall out your ass when you walk. You'd be wrong. Everybody poops, and you are not capable of producing something people would wish to dab behind their ears.
That said: You can be a source of light. You can try to be kind no matter what shit is shoveled at you.
Everyone, from you, to whatever infant came screaming into the world at this moment, has a beautiful soul, and we can make a choice to let the heart harden and become a cynic, or to allow light to shine. To allow for learning, particularly as you will screw up and have to scrape yourself off the ground at times...you might as well learn from it!
Religion is not necessary. You could seriously worship at the church of Happy Cakes for all I care... but have faith, love your fellow man, and try to understand that yes, everyone falls, and no one is immune to stupidity.
You'll fail here, occasionally. But: try this: diplomacy is the art of telling someone to go to hell in such a way that they are delighted to do so. You'll need to do this here and there.
You will not get along with, nor be understood by everyone. Seek not to be understood but to understand.
Goodnight, Gracie. God bless.
PS. The meaning of life is 42.
So long, and thanks for all the fishes.


  1. Love the very last part about seeking to understand. That's the best way to get through it all.

  2. I love St. Francis...and the "Seek not to___ but to be ___" prayer. I am hoping to learn to apply it, because it is such a good way to live.
