" I have no time to blog "

What an excellent justification.  Truth be told, I'm dead lazy.  But being "dead lazy" doesn't fit with the ideal image I have of myself.  "I'm not lazy, I'm BUSY," I protest.  But then, if I look back at the day, what have I accomplished?  A bit of research, a couple of emails, some shopping, child care, aquarium cleaning, dishwashing, a movie, laundry, cleaning the floors, and a bit of real work for which I actually got paid.  Not much.  But here's the thing:  Writing about justifications may look easy, but it's not.  It involves setting aside honesty and deliberately gravitating toward falsehood.  Try doing that for an hour or so everyday and let me know how it works for you.  I guarantee that if it doesn't heighten your awareness of all the falsehood around you, then you're not doing it right.  And if that doesn't force you to live your own life with a bit more honesty, then you are as dense as a....well....something that's really, really dense.  "I have no time to _______" can be an excellent justification to relieve yourself of the misery induced from any activity that require a degree of soul searching.  Why not search your soul?  Why not become more aware of yourself, your true self?  Aren't those who are aware of themselves happier, healthier, more successful, and probably more attractive, if not outright enlightened?  Yes, but it's a lot of work to get there, and a lot of that work is painful.  So if you'd rather not, you know what to do.
