The State of Me (Part like 3?)

Look at it like a mental and spiritual health version of ‘The State of The Union Address’— if I were the Union and the president giving the address, all in one — play along and read on.

Dear Fellow Medium Inhabitants, Readers, Writers, Staff, and Executives…

Call it an excuse to write — or a need to write and not know what to call it or what it may be about precisely if anything at all in particular. Call it a generic cop-out of a title, where I can get away with saying practically anything under, at least in terms of having chosen a fitting title.

Other than that, there’s no “getting away with” saying anything, on the internet or otherwise. Actually, a man much wiser than me once said I’ve never seen anyone get away with anything and it struck me with a ton of deep and meaningful what the fuck. Because it's oh so precisely, wholesomely, and absolutely true. Whether we, they, or anyone else realizes it. Whether now, eventually, or none of them other than an elite minority are ever the wiser about it. It’s no less true.

This is because, whether it’s today, tomorrow, at yours or their great-grandkids' fifth birthday party, or your daughter's bah mitzvah or your neighbor's wedding day, karma catches up two-fold to all creeds, kinds, colors shapes, and sizes, for all sorts of reasons. Both the good and bad kind. Its consequences and/or rewards, if you will, come in any and every form known to man, woman, child, and animal and it never discriminates. It remembers everything and forgets nothing. Like I said a wiser man said at a wiser time and in a more clever form, he was able to monetize fairly easily via the general public's unwarranted outrage, once said — no matter how big or small we are or it is — I also have never personally seen anyone truly and absolutely get away with anything, either.

This is because I’ve come to know karma all too well. On a deeply personal, prolifically real, in horrendously just or just horrendous ways. Ways I’d never wish upon my worst enemy — but they may bring upon themselves by declaring me an enemy for unjustly and ungodly like reasons — using means of evil against my best-intended prayers.
