I think that mistrust is a rift in time.  It’s amazing how the cycle of time can be interrupted by the paradox of mistrust.  No matter what the cause is of the mistrust, the rifts interruption is apparent in the space/time continuum – the continuum of trust between two more people.  Every emotion/feeling/bond has a given energy to it.

Once the rift has been interjected into a given continuum, any events preceding its commencement are forgotten.  All of the goods deeds, helpful gestures and other acts of being a good Samaritan are tainted and seemingly omitted from the “victims” memory.  We all know time is not in a straight line – hell even the device we observe time on ( a watch) is even a circle.  This means that time has a cyclical nature not a linear one.  If we could keep all of this in mind if/when we either cause mistrust or receive it then we would be more forgiving in some instances.

The cause of such events is sometimes more important that the result of them.  For example: stealing milk from a store is a class D felony – period however, is stealing milk to feed your starving baby still a class D felony too.  The cause of that particular rift in the American judicial system is often over looked and the act of stealing its self is deemed more important even though that baby’s life was in question.

I think it’s also important to understand that when one is being dictated by the laws of survival then our societal ones become second and tertiary.  In addition it should be noted that what “we” feel is mistrust is nothing more than our own insecurities oppossed to the offense thought to have been committed by another.

All I am saying is that if we look more into the causes opposed to the effects then perhaps our prevention would become much better than our cures.


One thought on “Mistrust

  1. Dimitri,

    I think that we have a lot of different thoughts here that need to be sorted out. First, in regards to time continum, I feel that certain things, we cannot understand and will never be able to. We can try to, but I don’t attempt to figure everything out. There is a beauty in knowing that some things, I will never be able to figure out God’s ways are not our ways (even dealing with time.

    God can do all sorts of things. God can work out a situation in the not yet(future), and once my not yet becomes my here and now(present), everything will be okay. Which, I guess one could say, that you are right, to some degree. I guess that would not make time linear, but to try to figure out God’s divine plan of time, I would dare not do. God has never asked us to know how everything operates, but just to follow His will for our lives. In due time, he will make many things, not everything, plain.

    Sometimes, we can get so caught up in the superficial, that we miss our true destiny. God calls us to be warriors, inspirers, peace makers, helpers, and creators. If we attempt figure out how every detail will work out, then we’ll never make it out of the starting block.

    Further, I think I read somewhere from you that the Bible was created by power-hungry politicians et al as a means to control others. The Bible, Dimitri, was originally written in Hebrew. I would like to share some of the writers for you. Moses wrote much of The Old Testament. Moses’ lineage is of that of a poor Hebrew child. Pharaoh’s daughter raised Moses. Thus, he became the son of a king. In a way, Moses was a powerful man, but Moses NEVER used the power God gave him for political or any other reasons.

    Moses never forgot that he had Hebrew blood running through him, even though he found himself in a very comfortable position. Moses left his comfortable position as a prince to lead the Hebrews out of slavery and through The Red Sea. Matter of fact, Moses never saw the promised land he began to lead the people to. How’s that for a power hungry mission? The only mission Moses was ever on was to do God’s work. He never saw fortune from that.

    Then there’s the heavy hitters of The Old Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul. Let’s talk about this political gain. All five of these men were either disciples or apostles of Jesus. These were the men who followed Jesus, and who only wanted to be close to Jesus. No fame. No fortune. So many people were completely against what they proclaimed. That Jesus saved and all they had to do is believe to be saved from sin. These men were spit upon, ridiculed, and jailed (of true innocence). So when you speak of the writers of the Bible stiving for political gain, I can’t stand behind you.

    Now I have heard of people use the Bible for political gain. I’ve seen hundreds of thousands of people enslaved in the name of Christianity, I’ve also heard that a whole etnicity of people were uprooted from their land through Bible quotes. That rings a bell. Some people will use anything to get what they want. This is true, but the Bible is the truth and what I base my beliefs.

    Onward and upward, I completely understand why laws are in place to keep people from stealing. Granted, there are instances in which stealing can be justified. However, every instance of a mother stealing milk is not ethical. A rich woman can steal milk for no other reason than kicks and giggles. This is why one goes in front of a jury of his or her peers because those who made the laws realize that there are some unclear cases of right in wrong. This is not to say that a jury always makes the “right” decision each time, but it is the best system we have in place. If you can think of a better system, have at it.

    Finally, mistrust and time or not comingled. If I stick my hand on a hot stove and burn myself, you better believe that next time, I am not going to be reluctant to stick my hand on the hot stove because I realize that I just may get burnt. I remember that last time, I was caused pain. It is human nature to not want to get hurt. It has more to do with experience than time.

    I don’t think people can forget someone who was good to them. It may just be that the person couldn’t love them or care for them in the way that he or she needed. It doesn’t make the person “good” or “bad”. It just makes the relationship (in whatever form it may be) not right at the time or forever (for that matter).
