Day 37: Cheating as abuse of life

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to justify cheating.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe its OK to ‘soft cheat’, meaning nothing serious but some casual fun with another who is already involved.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to only consider my enjoyment, not seen/realizing in a cheating situation there are consequences to many, more than the two that’s involved.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see/realize cheating is an ultimate form of selfishness and betrayal as it only considers self’s enjoyment, all others can pretty much go to hell.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to give highest priority to the nectar of sex and sexual attraction no matter what consequences it may bring.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see/realize ‘cheating’ is a form of disregard for life, as I am disregarding those that may suffer the consequence of this, in fact including myself, there is consequence to self as well, nobody wins in a cheating setup.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see/realize cheating in the mind is no different to cheating in the physical, as I have accepted and allowed the consequences.

Moralists will say, “don’t cheat, its a deadly sin”, easy to say until the opportunity knocks the door.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see/realize morality is absolute bullshit, as it’s untested feel good righteousness, never had to make an absolute decision considering what’s best for all life, placing self in the shoes of others. So by placing myself in the shoes of others, it’s abundantly clear to me, that many would be hurt and suffer the consequences of cheating, just for me to taste the heavenly nectar of attraction. Yet I would justify ‘soft cheating’ as fun and OK.

“Give me what I want, no matter what”, that’s the operating principle behind cheating, same principle behind the banking/money system, “give me the money/profit, no matter what”, no regard for anything or anyone, no regard for life. In a small way I am accepting and allowing this operating principle, that’s exactly why I am allowing ‘soft cheating’ as OK.

So what’s the correction.

When and as I see myself justifying cheating as OK, I stop I breathe, ask myself the simple question, am I willing to accept the disregard of life? Because once I accept disregard of life as cheating, then, no limit to what other kinds of disregards of life I may accept, like war, murder, rape, starvation, hunger, deforestation, labor abuse, pretty much any sort of abuse will become justifiable should I accept even one form of disregard of life as OK. Can’t say murder as disregard of life is OK but starvation as disregard of life as not OK.

Accepting abuse of life no matter what the form it takes, I am pretty much accepting and giving consent to all forms of abuse of life.

So justifying cheating is justifying abuse of life, and indirectly justify all forms of abuse of life.

Its lot more than having bit of fun or enjoying the highest nectar with someone who is already involved. Plenty of consequences awaits.
