Heavenly Judgment I
21" Hypersthene, Onyx, and Black Spinel
Prometheus was punished for his theft from Zeus by having an eagle sent every day to eat his liver while chained to a rock. Every night his liver would grow back and the eagle would return the next day to eat it form his body again. Was what Prometheus did innately wrong? That theft of fire for humankind was associated with the birth of civilization. If you look at this act from a utilitarianism point of view, that theft lead to a greater good and therefore isn’t inherently wrong, but a necessary grievance to the Gods.
Sometimes when rolling over the actions one has done to me, I wonder if my grudge against them is the eagle. Who will rescue them from my vehement despise? Not all parts of a person are good, I am not above this. The lesson and the knowledge I learned have been invaluable. Should I not them let it go? A lesson in forgiveness, not necessarily forgetting though.
