The story of Adam and Eve is perhaps the MOST overlooked and undervalued story in the history of all time. You may think that it tells the story of disobedience and the beginning of the downfall of man but you're only partially correct. More importantly, the story of Adam and Eve tells us that enlightenment is a heavy heavy cross to bear. There's a saying that goes "If you knew better, you'd do better." I, personally, think that the saying should be "If you knew better you'd do better, but you're going to be one mad bitch." You know why? Because when you know better, you're unwilling to go along with the stupidity that everyone else who doesn't know better succumb to. When you know better you stand your ground. When you know better you value your worth. When you know better, you do better, but you feel perpetually alone because it seems as if only 10 people in the entire world know better. You start to feel like you're crazy and can't figure out whats wrong with the rest of them. When you know better you long for the days when you were stupid because the stupid people bask in their stupidity. They're comfortable with being stupid. They're happy being stupid. They're ecstatic little puppies playing with flies and licking their own butts while someone who is smarter looks at them and thinks "puppies are so stupid." But the puppy doesn't care. All he knows is that his butt itches, licking it is the only way to get it clean and something is seriously wrong with you if you don't agree...oh...and that one day he's going to catch that damn fly.So what's more important? Knowing better and searching for like-minded people who are enlightened as well? Or, being stupid and happy and not even knowing that today is Tuesday?I'm starting to favor the latter.
