Mind maintenance is easy during day to day stuff.
But learning to stay cool and using a sense of constancy is very difficult when everyone is loosing it and blaming it on you.
When I have a good routine, I can manage myself okay. If I get a little horny, I’m not going to be impulsive. If I am angry and fearful of someone who is picking on me, I can usually suck it up and put it on the back burner, until the weekend.
These are my good habits that kicks in when stuff gets busy at work or in my personal life. Usually, I am okay, but lately, it has been double duty.
I am motivated to think about my personal philosophy. I need to practice being calm and constant in all my affairs. I need to see I am in an emergency room and act like the doctor on call. I really need to use it or lose it!
I want to be on my best behaviour. I’m not trying to get praise or manipulate or blame anyone. But I am all over the problem. I keep a cool head and use my talents and good ways to treat all in this emergency and all my affairs.
I need to bring it, to make my life work well. I’m giving myself lots of time, by next year I’ll either be at the next level or assessing all my mistakes.
Christmas in July, what can I say! It is better than the alternative. Do no harm. Happiness is a belief.
I’d kind of like to end it right here. But I have to go on and on.
Far from nativity, I must use my wits and intelligence and every good habit I possess from my present lifestyle. Why? To change and improve. To work out my problems and take responsibility for the bruises that occur to me and others.
There is an animal side to life that requires an art to living that is unavailable in school or most philosophies.
What is it and how do I use it?
These methods are unimportant. Using the principles are what makes it work. Putting them into practice is all that counts. No free lunch, no free ride. No pretty side to it. Just a lot of work and exercise.
