Those of us who invest heavily in the emotional side of relationships without also ensuring a rational base are often beset with quandaries of conscience. Cognitive dissonance does not allow us to rationally approach what we know is right, the anguish and pain that is quite real simply blocks all but the most dedicated individuals from understanding truth. I believe quite strongly that each of us as individuals is capable of discerning what is needful for ourselves as individuals.
Truth, as individually limited as it is, remains available for all who desire it. For some it is easier to ignore truth and promote fantasy. This can be seen on a large scale at any political function or large religious rally. For others a lifetime of training themselves to never accept anything at face value allows a deeper ability to reason. This approach is not without its drawbacks and often will result in limited inter human contact. My goal is to question everything, accept some and test all. Freedom as an individual requires this approach of me.
I do not want to be equal even though broken down I may be, I simply want my freedom and no man can stand in the way of that.
Free the mind and the body will follow
