Have You Got A Casino Habit?

‘Gambling responsibly; is an oxymoron.

It seems like there is something crack like about gambling at a casino.

Does anyone go just for fun, say ten minutes before a night at the movies?

I may sound angry or like an activist, but I am more concerned about awareness.

It is best to go mainstream to describe the problem at casinos for the world.

Let me walk you through the problem found by people in the USA.

If you are interested in my source of information check out the information below.

 John Rosengren published by The Atlantic.

Let me just say that I base my opinion on information I read. It doesn’t mean that I think they believe in my opinion. And, neither should you.

I am a big believer in awareness.

At the moment, the world has gone through too much trouble.

There has been a couple of pandemics, wars, and gaud knows what else plaguing an already messy business called being a human being.

I see people get caught in a variety of bad habits.

But it surprizes me, I find new ones all the time.

I was just looking up how I feel like going to the casino, when I found the article through a reddit website that mentioned the above article based on my search: “I feel like going to the casino.”

He describes a well educated and upper middle class fellow that falls through the cracks with his gambling problem.

Then he gets into casinos.

It looks like slot machines are highly addictive.

The stats sound outrageous, approximately 1.5 percent of US citizens have a gambling disorder.

I realize I get mood swings, and that it is not strange to admit I have trouble with stress and sleep from time to time.

So, if I was to act on my impulses, “I feel like going to the casino.”

You probably see where I am going with this idea.

Awareness is key.

Think about reading the article above or just google what I did and learn more about this gambling stuff.

Socrates Vs. Me: how to change the world

In this dialogue, Socrates and I have an argument and discuss ways to change the world.

Me: How do you show people the truth?

Socrates: I ask them questions.

M: I want to reveal to people how to live the good life. Can you do that, too!?

S: It would be better if they discovered how to do that on their own.

M: You don’t like to chit chat about that, eh?

S: You are my enemy, and I need to reveal you to them.

M: Since when, did I do something important? Am I a problem? Wouldn’t you rather have many enemies rather than just me?

S: There is nothing more important than the truth.

M: My truth or yours?

S: Mine, not your imitation. Remember, I am the one who drank the hemlock.

M: Yes, you decided to walk through the door.

S: Yes, and you are afraid of suicide.

M: Yes, I have a need to live a little longer.

S: Go out and make some friends like I do.

M: I will, but I want to make young friends, because they will tell the truth. They may not even know what there is about the truth that is so terribly difficult.

S: What about your routine? Let me help you tell the truth, show some of that pain and good life you are so happy to share with the world.

M: You don’t believe in writing anything, or telling anything, do you?

S: You and I are powerful individuals, we can help get the truth out there. Don’t you think?

Self Correct

I live by principles in all my affairs.

Mine are about doing no harm.

But I recognize when I go off course.

I recognize when I do harm to myself or others because of differing principles, opinions or practices…

So I self corrected today by throwing out some junk food, resetting myself to practice my good habits with food, exercise and sleep routines.

Wishing you all the best with your reset, whatever they may be.

What ‘Walden’ can tell us about social distancing and focusing on life’s essentials

‘Walden,’ published in 1854, is a manual for solitude with a purpose.

The Evolution Of Wisdom

As we have grown in heroism, thinking, compassion and self-awareness…

This evolving nature is not about simple growth of wisdom.

It requires the nurture of a human being with all the surrounding elements: environment, society, resources, and a type of self actualization born through consciousness.

Living like an artist who is motivated by life to live a good life, is like using the self propelled properties found in teaching oneself better ways to live one’s life.

The Unified Field Theory Of Philosophy

The joy of thinking about love is wisdom.

Doing no harm=the proper use of impressions =wisdom

The philosophy of life=Living the good life=good(habit +practice+ritual)=good(routine)

Although math and literature is similar, philosophy is similar to the joy of thinking about all these topics.

The Ring Of Power

A birthday present, my precious…

The Tao is the meeting place that allows you to meditate on the future in solitude.

It has been decades, about 50 years of living in the world with this ritual that has enabled meaning and purpose to come into being.

The shadow has shown itself to be fears about dying and being imprisoned by these same fears for years after years.

But in the west there is another meeting place called the metropolis or city to meet and lecture about the present in all its manifestations or reality that is experienced through consciousness.
