The seeing is the doing (Krishnamurti)

Once we understand how the mechanism of self -justification works in our selves - how we make things alright and fudge boundaries as soon as we see an advantage for ourselves in something - and everyone has some area where they do this - then we can better understand how to manage this in ourselves, and possibly model this self management for others.

The heart's slight sleight of hand
how friends become food in enabling circumstances
how good neighbours
may strip and rob other neighbours
of their family heirlooms
when the barbarians invade
and how some do not

how everyone does good
up to a point. and beyond that doesn't care,
or cares, up to the point they know
everyone cares about something
but certainly not about what you think they should care
so take care
