Musing

I wonder,
 if a society no longer believes in God
--or karma or the rule of heaven--,
no longer feels that as humans
we are part of something far older and more powerful than we are,
which has created the limits and conditions in which we find ourselves,
that while we are morally responsible creatures in the world,
we do not bear the final moral burden for the world,
if its only two choices are
to take responsibility for everything
as if man had replaced God
or
as victims of a cosmic accident
to take responsibility for nothing.

Both of which lead to madness.


Humility can be a great relief.
