4 CAN YOU BE CO-OPTED INTO OPERATING OUT YOUR CHARACTER?

I woke up with a question lopping through my mind.
The question is can a person or persons be co-opted into behaving out of character and be willfully and ruthlessly deceptive if it benefits them? 

Part of me say yes perhaps temporarily, short-term not long-term after all Judas betrayed Jesus Christ for money although the reward was short lived as he soon regretted his actions however his regretfulness didn't stop the events he set in motion and ultimately Jesus paid the price. 

The Judas example may seem extreme but I believe it's shortest and fastest way for you to  get the gist of what am saying. I think we all know a Judas and have experienced Judas's in our lives at one  point or another. I don't necessarily believe one can be co-opted long-term into willful deceitfulness unless it is seated within ones character to be so.

To be co-opted  continually for years seems a bit convenient because there is someone else to blame thereby abdicating personal responsibility and accountability. It gives the person a personal out for being deceitfulness, for continually lying, pretending and betraying others for their own personal gain. I will go so far as to say if you can be co-opted into willful ruthlessness then you can be as easily co-opted to a false witness against an innocent because it benefits you to do so.

What are you thoughts?
Can you be continually be co-opted into deceitfulness and calculating under handed behavioral tactics if it benefits you?
Can you be bought?
What is your souls price?
What is your souls worth?

8 GIVE WHAT YOU NEED

A yearning for more.
We all have a desire to be loved, respected and valued. How those desires manifest to each of us may defer dependent on our love Language. The set of rules we ourselves secretly decide is the interpretation of what we are asking for and that tells us, yes, this is the one. 

There is nothing wrong with wanting more, desiring to be cherished and live in a way that lift us to our highest and best selves. However life is much about reciprocity thus we must ask ourselves, what do we have to offer? How can I lift another, honor value and respect them? If in the light of that questioning you experience difficulty finding the answers then you have work to do for you cannot ask for what you cannot give. 

It's important that you know and fully understand the value of what you bring to the table. Then and only then do we have a right to set the standard on how we want to be treated because it is the same standard by which we will treat others.

8 ONE DAY AT A TIME

Blessings
Everyday we must find at least one thing to be thankful/grateful for. 
We owe it to ourselves to keep our hope alive 
Our faith strong
Our spirit fed
Our mind focused
Our soul soothed
We must do it for ourselves
We must do it for each other
Because we are WORTHY
Because we are ENOUGH
Because we are LIFE
If you are overwhelmed and cannot lift up yourself, lift another & another will lift you up
We are each others keeper
We are each others champion 
Do it because
Do it instinctively
Do it unconditioned

6 CHANGE, LIFE'S CONSTANT


Change is constant, a certainty. Most fear change however nature continually demonstrates the valued necessity in its repeated yearly transformations. We need to heed Nature's lessons about change and embrace it rather than soak in resistance for that which is inevitable.
