Just because you can….

…doesn’t mean you should!

One of the problems in our society is that we often choose to do something just because we can. That would be the masculine energy acting without the balance of the feminine energy to keep that one foot on the right path. From draining lakes for drinking water to ridiculous lawsuits to running a red light … to … an endless number of examples.

It’s time for us to stop and think about our actions, not only as a society as a whole but also individually. We need to be asking ourselves if the choice is beneficial to the greater good. If not and it is all about “me” and “what I can get without regards to the cost to others”, then, well, it is a “shouldn’t” choice.

The examples of “just because I can” surround us on a daily basis. As an outsider (or part of the “cost to others” group) we can see that the actions are wrong and it is disheartening to watch and hear the stories.

And then I have to wonder how many times I have chosen that wrong path – perhaps in subtle ways but still wrong. For anything that I have done at the cost of others. I apologize.

Keeping one foot on the right path,
