Face it. Nobody lives by those God given rules anymore. In fact, since Adam. He's supposedly the reason for all our current sufferings. I may be Buddhist, but I've heard a lot about him. And he blamed the woman too. Precisely what our MPs who talk about rapes, sexual harassments and leaks, do all the time.
But then, there still are rules. And if you don't want to live by any of them at all, please get up, desert your family and go live in the jungle (as if you can find a real jungle nowadays). If you're as tough as you think you are, you'll survive.
If not, and you still want to give civilization another chance, be nice and live by some of the rules. I mean some. You can't survive either if you want to live by all the rules. After all they're all man made. That's right, man. Mostly one-sided, right? And if men can't really follow all of them what do you expect of women?
We all need a practical balance to live and survive with the rest the two-legged species and you can't have it all without giving some of it back. In fact, you'll have to give it all back when your time's up. That's why some people like King Tut and Shi Huang Ti, who thought they had it all, refused to go. So they tried to find ways to live forever. Some people are still trying to live forever. At least they behave like they do, especially those who sit in high places.
If you believe in re-incarnation, you'll still come back as a totally new setup. If from the Karmic point of view, you try not to behave like a pig for fear that you'll come back as Porky, or not mistreating your maid otherwise you'll turn up as a maid working for a witch next time around, then perhaps you'd better behave now. Otherwise I think it's a waste of time thinking about this aspect. For one thing, if you can't remember anything from your past lives. So what's the point of believing in this thing?
Anyway they'll juggle all your atoms and even revise your DNA. By the time your brain's fully made up and you realized yourself as yourself, you'll only be aware of your current conditions. Your memory? Forget it. That hard disk's a brand new one to you. They don't recycle Hdds. Totally new format.
Ok, back to the rules thingy. There are of course some rules where human lives are concerned you must follow to the letter. And there are others most people just ignore and the law will close one eye until other people make noise. And then there are those rules which , no matter how hard you try, some people will just tell you you've broken them. And you're guilty no matter how you argue. But you got to know the difference. Just follow conscience. Otherwise play smart, get good lawyer... If you want to break law, I got one eye closed, the other shut. You are old enough to do as you please.
