  1. Crazy is not definable nor rational. It is reality glanced at by people who are unstable but think they are. When you bandy the thought that another is unstable….it is you, who cannot settle on the thoughts of your own.

    Crazy, then, if seen through a mirror, beholds the true image of the person imprisoned in a mental warfare of who is most logical. Logic does not define “normal.” Normal is not logical. Crazy is not logical nor normal. Just because the majority of people around you “say” you are crazy, perhaps you need to be with a different group. Kids change who their friends are as they achieve adulthood. It would be ‘crazy’ to stay with people who do not support your way of thinking. That is intelligence. Accepting what other people say, which is their opinion, is not healthy, unless you like it.

    If you like being put-down, and inspires you to be a better, you, then, you are intelligent, using mockery to your full advantage. If you like hearing uplifting thoughts about your decisions and you become “big-headed” and frown upon those who are not like you, then perhaps you need counseling. Many people are miss-guided and seek no help. Those who do, are not crazy, they seek to become better people who may inspire others to improve.

  2. Is mankind, crazy? Maybe. Let us look at the evidence. People infuse the air with contamination that we breathe that causes diseases and cancer. People spray plants people eat with pesticides that kill insects and offers diseases to people who eat the pesticides, too. People pour poisons into our waste water, then people channel the water to the ocean, where the fish we eat, contain the same contamination people poured into the ocean. People create noise, and some people must listen to the noise from their bedroom, the entire duration of “resting.” People kill each other for reasons that not justified by self-protection. People steal personal property from others. People lie to each other. People don’t always help people, who need it, the most. People under pay wages to people who are living below the poverty level.

  3. Am I CrAzY? …for leaving three (3) messages here, thinking someone is going to read my thoughts? Maybe.

    The “moderator” will make a decision, whether to publish my writings. If my thoughts are published, I will be thankful. If not, perhaps the moderator will be blessed with my thoughts, and change his/her mind on a future date. Then, I will have feedback, knowing I helped, at least, one person during my journey of life here, with you all!

    My idea of a successful and productive life is, how many people did I help achieve their full potential before their last day.
