It is too easy to become complacent with developed patterns to such an extent that you simply overlook the damage being done.

Claiming ignorance will never wash away the stains of truth. Take a shining example of a faith white-washed in greed, seen most recently in the media spotlight under the heading mega-church corruption.

The revered Reverand Creflo Dollar, (are you kidding me, this guy's name is Dollar? you can't write comedy this good.) told the Senate, "Without a doubt, my life is not average, but I'd like to say, just because it is excessive doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong."

"Doesn't necessarily mean that it's wrong?" Hmm, pardon me Mr. Dollar, you must be under the fairly narrow-minded assumption that the world is here for your taking. If I'm not mistaken isn't it easier for a CAMEL to go through the eye of a NEEDLE, than it is for a rich man to enter heaven?

But I digress, complacency is an unseen virus that enters your life on the back of accepted ignorance.

Sorry, but reading the ingredient labels is the equivalent of making yourself right with whatever divine being you believe in. If you don't understand what you are ingesting but choose to do so anyway, that's called ignorant behavior.

Ignorant behavior allows a certain amount of complacency to squeeze into your life.

If you don't believe me, simply look at the ever-expanding human waistline and increasing rate of diabetes. These are simple facts which seem to allude most people mainly because they want to avoid inconveniencing themselves with silly consequences.

Get angry, get sad, get upset, cry, laugh, just do something to stoke the fires of creativity that are smoldering inside. Within the fires of creative self you may find the refiner's fire of truth.
