The Duality of the everyday occurence

Every day things happen. Whether we ready for them or not. But they still happen nevertheless.

I find that few do introspection though. Okay so that may not be a fair statement. People always think about what they do. What I mean is that few people challenge themselves to find out the real reason they do things.

Take for example, we have a person who is always around others. There is nothing wrong with that per say. But if lets say he is there because he is lonely and cannot live with himself, then we would say that is not good. Yet we could also find a person that is very okay with themselves, but still hangs out with others quite a bit. We would then say that’s not bad at all.

There is always 2 sides to any story. I think what throws us here is that the circumstances are everyday things. And everybody does everyday things, right.

But sometimes we do them for the wrong reasons and we never question them because they are everyday things. And we never analyze the everyday things, do we?
I am not meaning we should second guess ourselves on everything. But it would be good to know that we are doing what we are doing for the right reasons (whatever that may be).

I guess what I am saying that there always will be a duality of intentions, and they both look the same to us from the other end. None of us can see with what intentions the other person has.

Given that, do you question your actions?

    Yes, I question my actions. Endlessly. The blessing and curse there is that by constantly questioning one’s actions – and by that I mean making sure there is a valid reason behind everything I do – it takes longer to make decisions. Looking down the pipe at that duality can be daunting, and the stasis of indecision is a clear risk.
    This reminds me of a university discussion on the design of Canada’s parliament. It is designed strongly in favour of quick decisions with nominal procedures for representation and sober second thought. A couple of centuries have demonstrated that quick is often good enough, but rarely brings about the best outcome. Food for thought, there!

    Questioning one’s actions can reveal one’s intentions and motives somewhat if ur honest enough to consider these with an open mind. At the same time it can be very daunting if u don’t have some form of grace or peace to ease all these motives with. Because granted, they can’t always be pure. In my experience, disecting one’s behaviour and thoughts behind actions without Christ can lead to depression, especially if ur like me, and hung up on righteous. Words from a recovering pharisee…

      I think I pose this question to people who do not think further than their nose. And also people tend to not question themselves and their actions because they simply do not want to deal with things. But this in analysis in order to correct what we find. If you are someone that gets down on yourself, well that will happen regardless of whatever you think about or don’t think about. Don’t you think?
