Not the Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are not supposed to be suggestions.

However, there are a few things in the Ten Commandments that give me a problem, not least all that God stuff.  For example; Thou shalt have no other Gods but me. Well, I don’t have a God at all, my personal deity and higher power is a Goddess, which kind of means that I’m continually breaking the First Commandment.

And again, I have a slight problem with the Sixth Commandment; Thou shalt not commit adultery. I guess most of the adults on the planet have broken this commandment, in one way or another, at one time or another, and I can’t get much worked up about that.

Nonetheless, every good man should have rules that he lives by, or he will eventually become a macho jerk, bully, coward, crook, wastrel, thug, and probably much worse.  Not only that, if a few good men don’t have rules they live by, then the whole world will soon descend into chaos.

Remember, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

My personal rules are;

  1. Do no harm.
  2. Do not lie.
  3. Do not steal.
  4. Do not judge.
  5. Do not be lazy.

If you liked, you could junk all five of my personal rules, and just live by the one rule that’s best for you;

Get your shit together.

Some say that the Ten Commandments are divinely revealed law.  And that if God had wanted us to live in today’s broken society they would have been Ten Suggestions.  All I know is that you are going to piss off a lot of people when you start doing what’s best for you.

  1. I, too, have some problems with the Ten Commandments. I like your “Do not judge.” That would be a really cool Commandment! 🙂

    1. Not judging others, and trying not to judge myself too harshly is one of the rules I live by.
      (And I just had an incredible feeling of deja vu.) ❤ 😉

  2. It frustrates me to annoy people. I’m too much of one of those people pleaser sorts….which might be why I also believe I have a submissive streak. Although, only one person has ever explored that part of me. And very rarely!

    1. I believe that people pleasers suffer from a fear of abandonment ~ and I have been there.
      Your submissive streak sounds fun. ❤ ❤ ❤
