Determining what is necessary and what is not is an individual responsibility and a personal right. You cannot impose what is necessary for you onto me, or anyone else. Our necessities/urgencies are ours alone to know and to do. Our ability to size things up and to be correct in our appraisals of what constitutes an urgent necessity varies from person to person, and sets us apart from one another into broad categories of those who know, and those who do not know, who they are and what needs to be done. We march to the beat of different drummers-- that is a necessity incumbent upon us all. How well we recognize, accept that, and place ourselves in accord with it, tells the tale, the tale that is ours to tell with the way we live our life. Doing what we determine to be necessary in each situation as it arises, what is needed, what is called for, what is urgent, and what is to be done is a reflection of who we are and what tune we march to. The more we are ruled be the culture and ways of some collective, the less we can claim to be individuals in our own right, and the less human we are and more like automatons we become. Whose song are you singing with the life you are living? Whom do you look to before deciding what to do? Who directs your life on its journey through each day? Who decides what is necessary for you, and what is not?
