Daily Prompt: Morality Play

The prompt is:

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us THE SOURCE.


The Answer is:


Knowing right from wrong and choosing to behave responsibly and treat others respectfully means we are not reactionary organisms anymore.  We do not need the threat of an white-bearded old man in the sky shooting lightening bolts at us or any other such craziness previously used to control the masses.  Putting human god-representatives in charge of your morality has proven to only lead to enormous scandal and destruction.  Try being a good person because it is the right thing to do, not because you get 300 virgins when you die.  Just be good because it is right, not because you need a treat at the end, like you are some dog performing a trick.  You are more than that.  Infinitely more.

So this is how it is:  the innocent suffer, the guilty go free, and truth and fiction are pretty much interchangeable. There is neither a Santa Claus nor an Easter Bunny, and there are no angels watching over us. Things just happen for no reason. And nothing makes any sense.

You have to choose to be good, to behave responsibly, and to create yourself into a person you can be proud to be.
