"Progression or regression, there is no in-between."



I went to Church today, and that was the message of the Pastor. I'm going to translate for you in a reflection without the use of "God" or "Jesus Christ" or any biblical figure because like most of you, I'm not a regular at any Church nor do I claim myself religious, but today I was asked to go, so... WHY THE FUCK NOT? In addition I'd also want and need you to realize the insanity of "history repeating itself" in a recycled manner, because we as a collected whole, refuse to fix them, which I'm sure we've all noticed frustratingly or ignorantly.

Progression or regression, there is no in-between. Very simple concept, but time is always moving on, whether you like it or not, whether you believe you're moving or not, you're always moving, there is no "standing still" or "doing nothing", it's either progression or regression, moving forward or being pushed backwards. All of us know this, but some of us, and we've seen it in others, refuse to keep moving or even start to move forward, why?
Let me give you my opinion: Oh boy!

It's the fact that you'd (I'm using "you" in a "most of you" generalization, if it offends you, learn and move on (hopefully forward)) much rather, for some sick infantile reason, not let go of the past; yes, sick. It's immature to give anyone, especially yourself, any reason to not change your life for the better: Why would you rather sit while life passes you by, when light is being shed onto your hopes and dreams right in front of you? There is no better time than RIGHT NOW to reach out and figure out what you want to do with your life, there is no reason except for your own lack of ambition; it's absolutely insane; Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We are always learning, but you should not ever have to learn the same mistake more than a few times before it registers that something needs to be changed.

In closing, I'd like to help, but the harshest truth of life is that "you can't help those who don't want to be helped", which doesn't mean don't try to help, but shed light when you can, don't be used. As for going to Church, I have no problem learning about the Bible because I'm learning, always learning, just with "since the beginning of time" validity from a man that's so scorned. If he did die for our sins, I should at least respect him enough to learn his story before I judge him, and it.
