Alone We Are Weak and Fragile

— Alone We Are Weak and Fragile, But Together we Are Invincible —


 

 

Alone I’m fragile and weak, but with the like minded, I’m an unstoppable force of change. That’s why I’m a hermit.

I would do more damage than blessings to the world, I’m a monster in hiding. A cute cuddly monster who grew old and fragile, like the one snowflake, and the temp grows warmer with age, and I’m transforming into a rain droplet.

Alone I give nourishment to an ant, or a small group of ants. After last year, they attacked my plants, so I would rather not nourish ants.

 

Everything deserves the opportunity, and the grace of life, even the ants. They don’t have a voice, so after I broke my leg with the killing of a whole colony of ants with the poisonous bait traps, that they carry back to their nest with the queen. They kill the whole colony with their poisonous food.

I broke my leg falling off the shower bench in the shower within the next week after the genocide of ants. I think it was the bleach I applied to the bench seat, that made it slippery.

Well, it came as a surprise to me, and I was cursing God in my mind, as I was trying to reach up, and I couldn’t reach anything without slipping, cause my hands were soapy.

I thought about why I fell off the bench, and the ants were always coming to my mind. The genocide I caused on that whole colony, made me superior like a dictator, rather than a peacemaker. The ants may be small and powerless, but together they ruin the growing season, especially if you try and kill them through some nefarious methods.

That makes the saying “Alone we are weak, but united we an are invincible force” seems true to the point of destruction, but I would rather choose another end, than destruction.

 

So after watching this video, it brought to mind, I wasted more of my life not doing anything, but seeking my own comfort. I need to finally feel like I made a difference in somebody else’s life. I never got married, so I don’t have a family, except the one I came from.

Loneliness is a poison that speeds up the decay of your life, and as you get older the clock speeds up, where the hours seems like seconds. It seems like you just got up, and faced the day, then it’s over, and you’re tired.

Solitary existence is depressing, it’s peaceful, but it’s a lonely existence.

It feeds the delusional minds with fears and “what ifs”. You fantasize about the past experiences in your life, and say “what if I did this?”, then become delusional in those thoughts.

If you believe in those delusional thoughts, then you get depressed and bitter. It’s the way the devil designed this world to run. The examples of Jesus frees us from that end, with forgiveness, mercy, and love, rather than vengeance, war, and gluttony.

 

The devil rules this world, and is rewarding all kinds of sins. He picks the leaders, and hides the scandals.

Have you ever ruled the world?

It’s a chore trying to please everyone, and his view of the individual is belittling to say the least. Jesus is not to get involved with anyone’s life, unless they ask for it, through prayer.

I’m a Christian, but I see the same teachings in every religion on this planet… do unto others as you would done to you, Karma follows that thought. What you sow, you’ll reap. What comes around, goes around.

Alone we are weak, but together we are strong… Do something, no matter how small and stupid it seems. It brings it more into focus for the weaker and stronger.

Alone we are weak, and getting weaker by the weight of loneliness. It’s like the ant poisons of the world.

Don’t die without doing something to make somebody else happy… besides you.

 

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals.

Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load.

That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive.

So love your enemies.
