What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

What They Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Them…

-‘Nothing weighs on us so heavily as a secret.’

                                                                    Jean de La Fontaine

 

As I ran this Morning, watching the Sun take its position in the Sky, transforming Morning into Afternoon, I
pondered what I would write about today. Idea after idea running through My Mind, mocking Me as I ran around the oval pathway… I thought of topics that I’d written about before, whether I should revisit them and I thought of a multitude of others that have yet to make it to My blog, to be read and contemplated by its readers.

As I came to the finale of My Morning run, thinking back on the past, while at the same time focusing on the Moment I was experiencing, INSPIRATION walked up to Me, tapped Me on the shoulder and whispered in My ear, ‘Why is it that People say, ‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’ when the TRUTH is, it will do Nothing but Hurt them and that is why the One that doesn’t want them to know is trying to keep the Secret from them.’

‘Hmmm…? What they don’t know won’t Hurt them…’

As I thought more about that statement it came to Me that, just like a Secret, most of the time, along with that
statement comes an Action or something that We do that we are Ashamed of, and don’t want anyone else to know about. Like
Infidelity, Cheating, Stealing, a Fabrication, Information, anything that can cause Hurt or Pain to another and We are so Selfish and Hell-Bent on ‘instant-gratification’ and what it is we WANT that We continue on with the Action that We know will cause another consternation and We tell Ourselves…’Well, they won’t know what I did or am doing…So, what they don’t know won’t Hurt them…,’ but ALL the while it’s not only Hurting them, it’s also Hurting the individual doing the Wrong…

‘What they don’t know won’t Hurt them,’ leads to One having to Watch every little thing that they say so as not to ‘slip up,’ Lie about their activities, Hide behind those Lies, Remember the Lies so as to be able to Build upon them, Be Watchful of themselves and make sure they aren’t being ‘found out,’ Be Sly about things that they do and a plethora of other things so as to keep that Secret a Secret, whether it is to be kept from another individual or a group.

This alone, is a Heavy Weight for One to have to carry, doing ALL of these things so as not to be found out, in
addition to ALL of the other things One has to do from Day to Day but Selfishness doesn’t seem to care of those things, that is until the weight becomes too much or One’s ‘Dark Deeds are brought into the Light.’

Secrets that We hold that We don’t want another to know about, which We are actually ashamed of, are truly Heavy Weights to carry because We are Hurting Ourselves, first of ALL by having taken part in the Behavior that caused it to have to become a Secret and having to have to carry it around with Us ALL of the time. Then add to that the fact that We have to keep it from another so that they won’t be Hurt by Our actions, is akin to Atlas Holding the Earth upon His Shoulders…

My Friend…My Reader, if the Action You take or are about to take is Questionable, Wrong, Gut-Wrenching, One that will Hurt another or One that You are or will be ASHAMED of, don’t take part in it because…

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’

-‘I don’t Want any DRAMA in My Life…’

                                    -Various

‘SHHH…’ ‘Listen…’ So many Individuals make the PROCLAMATION, ‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!,’ but ALL in the same breath they are in the very Midst of the DRAMATICS, searching for a way to stir-up some DRAMATICS or ‘Just Down-Right DRAMATIC themselves!’ It’s interesting that We don’t Want or Like DRAMA in Our Lives but We can’t seem to Live without it.

A lot of individuals, if they seem to be in a place where things are Calm and Peaceful, tend to get this idea that
things need to be ‘shaken-up’ or they need to persuade DRAMA to come out of hiding to make themselves feel as if they are a part of something worthwhile. Whether through Gossip, Fabrication, Breaking a Trust, Causing some Pain or simply, Becoming a part of something that entails DRAMATICS. I have come to
notice that, those that make the PROCLAMATION,
‘I Don’t Want Any DRAMA In My Life!’ the most, are the Ones that actually LOVE DRAMA the most…Feeding off of it! Creating it wherever they go! Persuading
others to become a part of it!

‘Are You sure You don’t Want DRAMA in Your Life?’

If an individual doesn’t Want DRAMA in their Life, My question is, ‘Why don’t they just step off of the Stage?’ They continue to act out their part in the DRAMA, replaying the Scene of the Production or the Movie that they
PROCLAIM they don’t care to be a part of, over and over again so as to keep the DRAMATICS going in their Life, to feel like they are actually LIVING.

This to Me is ridiculous because… if the idea is for ‘One to Live a Life FREE of DRAMA but One has been Fooled into believing, therefore actually BELIEVING, that they have to have DRAMA in their Life to feel Alive or a part of something, all the while being DRAMATIC but PROCLAIMING that they ‘Don’t Want the DRAMA in their Life,’ …who is the LIE being told to?

Think about it?

DRAMA and DRAMATICS is for the Theatre…Stage and Screen and if One is not an Actor or Actress they should do ALL that they can to avoid DRAMA because it’s ‘No Good’ for anyone. The less DRAMA We have in Our Lives the less Stress and Worry We have to be concerned with even though We have been lead to Believe otherwise…

 

My Friend…My Reader…Are you One that can TRULY Proclaim, ‘I Don’t Want DRAMA In My Life?’

 

And, if You are…

‘Well…Step Off Of The Stage!’
