Are we rotten to the core?

Most people are good at heart.  There is no question about that.  The question is; to what degree do we hold moral strength in order to live up to what we are at heart?  How much of ourselves do we sacrifice to experience the temptations of a non-empathetic way of life?

When the only thing we truly have to lose is ourselves, then all we can be vulnerable to is our own choices.  Everything else that we fear losing was not, and never will be ours. 

Consciousness vs. Responsiveness

If we are ever to reach a “golden age”, it will take a conscious effort. Meaning that; simply responding appropriately to stimuli is not enough. We must use consciousness to allow us to step outside of our reactions in order to see a more complete picture and enable us to act on awareness rather than the relative sensational responses. It will require a majority of our conscious efforts to even begin to move in that direction. It seems to be a battle between consciousness and responsiveness. Right now we are dominated by responsiveness which has led us through many wonderful and horrible places. I wonder where consciousness will lead us. We have yet to grasp the concept collectively, so we can only wonder until we walk the path.
