One of the things I struggle with as an adult is witnessing people behaving in unethical ways. I say ethical, because I believe most people are taught or spiritually inherit the knowledge of what is right and wrong conduct. In my daily life if I treat someone poorly I beat myself up and extend an apology. It bothers me if I feel I committed an injustice. Something inside me, call it good manners or divine moral imprinting makes me realize if I made a mistake. However, what truly puzzles me is when I find those who choose to act spiteful to others on a regular basis without any evidence of a conscience. I guess this is the bullying epidemic we hear about so much. I often wonder about a bully's ideology. Of course everyone is susceptible to feelings of jealousy, anger, hurt, and all of those ugly emotions. Possibly, those who bully others are so upset at their core that they can't muster much good-will? Another possibility, not mutually exclusive is that they are spiritually lost, not able to connect with the divine spark within. I do believe that people, having all of their basic needs met are kind and loving in their souls. I guess the answer lies in hoping that those with the meanness bug realize that their unhappiness resides only within them. Only through self reflection can one find the cause of disconnect from others/God and why happiness eludes you.
