We did not Create Ourselves

We did not create ourselves.
If we are less than perfect,
it is not our fault.

But, once we make this realization,
it is our fault if we don’t become
a little more perfect than we are now.

Consciousness is not something mystical and mysterious,
it’s simply the process of becoming less of a jerk.

A process of becoming more helpful and less hurtful
and trying to be fairer and kinder in our dealings with each other,
and the world of life we are part of and dependent on.

Jim Bell
(2/3/95)
