Conundrums, Shopping, and a New Religion

1 Nov

I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed. “Middlin’ bright” would probably be the best description of my intellectual capability. But there is one thing that baffles me beyond even the political leanings of the far right.

Now what, you might ask, is this world shattering quandary that haunts my dreams? What deep theological, philosophical conundrum have I pondered on sleepless nights? How many hours have I passed positing a solution to this enigma?

Many hours have passed in reflection and still no logical explanation has surfaced, no solution has been found.

The socks still go missing in the dryer.

I got lost in Walmart yesterday. The nearby and neighborly swallowed me up.

Walmart is a big deal in Arkansas. Much as I hate the politics of the owners and hate their treatment of their employees and hate going to Walmart, I still find myself there on a regular basis. For a little over a year I managed to avoid it, although I did continue to use Sam’s. Somehow I found myself going back. Budget constraints forced me to start buying soda there again. And quite suddenly it became one stop shopping.

I’ve abandoned my principles.

I’ll surely go to hell.

Oh, wait. Already there. Walmart hell!

No, seriously. If the gods are benevolent, then life on planet Earth is the closed thing to hell I can imagine. I mean look around folks. Man is really efficient at making his own hell.

Personally I think it’s time to put the fires out.

We could start a new religion. Long ago a friend told me he worshiped Elvis. Well, why not? It seems about as logical as anything else. At least we wouldn’t get hung up on too much dogma. Morality? Well he was a little strange. Aren’t we all? I think we could work with it.

No….we need something simple…..something anyone could follow. A no-brainer we can teach our kids.

I’ve got it.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

It’s so simple, to the point, and if paraphrased, really easy to remember. Shoot, if you only have one rule, it should be easy to remember regardless of its complexity.

If we humans practiced this one rule, we could so bring about world peace. We could eliminate poverty and hunger. Everyone would get medical care and people would take care of each other.

We would never achieve a perfect record, being human and all. But think how much improved life would be if we just practiced.

Too bad someone didn’t think of it before now.

Oh please, oh please, oh please share your thoughts!
