Conceive: (v) to form or devise a plan
“The imaginations of a man’s heart are evil continually from his youth.”
Rather than considering this a degrading statement from the Good Book, we should understand that it is the working climate and
environment that exists in the interactions of human beings, as we attempt to move forward beyond our jungle roots to a lifestyle with a higher sensitivity.
What we’re working on is how we conceive things.
If every woman is just a storage house for a pair of breasts and a vagina, and every man has to be concerned about the length of his penis, as every country contends that it is the first and the best, and all religions struggle for supernal supremacy, it is a good idea to slow down and realize that since we normally conceive things in wickedness, it might be healthy to saturate ourselves in contentment and find deeper and purer motives for our actions.
We don’t have to.
We can become defensive and think that since everybody else is so rudely constructed, we must maintain our lack of civility if we want to survive.
Yet in a rock fight, the only people who escape injury are those who refuse to throw rocks, but instead, retreat to contemplate richer and more enlightened solutions.
