The Creative State

Joy

The creativity or stream=of=consciousness is a state of being that is expressed through a practice of well being.

My practice may be while I do something or very little.

Meditation or mindfulness can have a flow of consciousness.

We can practice breathing as a meditation, but it is when we experience the stream of our consciousness that we can experience our best meditation.

To let go is the same thing as going for flow or being in the zone.

We feel whole or one, a unity of ourselves with whatever we are practicing or doing.

When the workday just disappears or time flies, this is the x-factor.

Of course, we need to work at it with the intension of being in the Tao, we are just opening up to whatever is there.

We can stop the flow whenever we want to stop being present or do something else.

But there is no reason to stop.

 

Our life is a creative state.

We use too much punctuation in our life.

Transparency Of The 13th Amendment

Why are thousands of people being exploited because they are poor?

Why are people being enslaved by the criminal justice system?

Why is business using these people as a form of cheap labor?

Why is business trying to privatize the criminal justice system?

Why are business’s eating these poor people for breakfast?

When are we going to help free poor people from prison?

Let’s stop criminalizing poor people.

Let’s reform by helping poor people in prison: Giving to the poor is helping them get out of prison.

Stop redesigning the criminal justice system to perform a mandate that is unjust: stop putting poor people in jail.

A Belief

Love
The sweet love we leave at youth.
A return to heaven, to reunite with truth,
But love and heaven are not longing or filled with desire.
We love our family, we love our spouse,
And yet, in this present moment, who worships or honour’s them.
Our love is not for god and country,
We don’t confuse it with piety, patriotism or passion.
Like a gentleman, who remains alike during war or peace and calm.
Is love another name for a rose, an innermost cherished belief?
Does love work on the law of returns?
As we grow, we find feeling to express.
A kind of gratefulness to be alive.
We sprinkle it on all we give and take.
Like a magical fairy dust, we create with it.
But we don’t believe in magic.
We believe in love.

Calmi Cuori Appassionati (Between Calmness and Passion)

As a student of life, I awake in the night,

Stridently, my heart, my mind is lost.

I have promised my return for ten years.

But with my father’s death, I have lost thee.

Shall I apologize, what can I do now?

(She was my life.)

My life returns, my life returns,

Her abscense is still felt.

What will be, will be.

Good bye, good bye.

Noncommunicable diseases

Premature death is the result of lifestyle: smoking, drinking, overeating and consuming toxic substances.

To some degree, we are all causing damage to our metabolism.

We need to make it a priority in society to help people change their lifestyle when they get sick.

There are no good or bad behaviors.

In some sense, there are no good or bad people.

We all have accidents, make mistakes and get judged, addicted and harmed in some way.

The learning process is very painful for the majority of us.

One side of the truth are the facts: go to the world health organization and read them under the above title.

Another truth or more of the truth is that we can help and support each other in all our affairs.

Just because a person gets sick, doesn’t mean they caused it.

There are no worthwhile causes to take on in this world.

We just need each other.

The outcomes arrive when the time is right.

Many learn from their mistakes.

Keats talked about truth and beauty: look it up, Ode To A Grecian Urn.

The Fountain Of Youth(The Human Body)

The consumption of water is part of it (scientifically).

So is fitness and nutrition, actually all aspects of the human body can be regulated by using the mind and following the outline for the ‘Wheel Of Life’.

We need awareness and the will to carry it out.

It is like a miracle, once we see it and love it, it will grow in proportion to our effort to actualize it.

Yet, good and bad, we can make it manifest.

There is no time or space in the imagination.

It just is.

It is our choice to grow and thrive and put the effort forward to make manifest in our lives all we hold dear and true.

In this sense, we are forever young.

In this sense, our lives are constantly renewing our youth until we spend it all or use up our life.

It is a shame to be left wanting as this life, no matter how long or brief, is the ultimate gift.

Enjoy.

Extreme Makeover (The Wheel Of Life)

What is your physical environment like in your life.?

Do you have a home, a local, an appearance, and transportation?

What about your career and work?

What are your hours, career direction, purpose and performance?

How is your financial security or money?

Do you budget, save, produce an income, make an investment?

How is your health or well being?

What are your eating habits or diet?  Fitness?  Sleep?  Relaxation?  Emotional Health?  And Self-care?

What about your personal growth:  education, learning, reading, awareness, connection, and spirituality?

Are you having fun and recreation:  leisure, hobbies, passions, and laughter?

As is often said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.”

Or, “know thyself”, and learn to be who and what your are.

Poetry (yes,yes,yes)

“The truth will set you free”

To see and understand, the image must be real.

The flavor or color of sand is a measure of the scale.

How dense is your mitochondria?

How powerful is your cell?

The cost of being vulnerable is the cost of being well.

Who would regenerate from the damage if life lessons practiced well?

Who could forget their misery if ‘mindfulness’ practice fell?

To hoard and heal wounds are subject to living spells.

What do you believe?

Music is a sphere like reason, love and fear.

Tolerance is a virtue like temperance and justice.

Yet, analysis will not yield an answer to the truth about life.

Even a ‘good life’ is subject to others’ reason, love, fear…

Even a ‘holy person’ is subject to tolerance, temperance, and justice.

We would be a monk to answer the truth about love?

Are we not all sinners?

Are we not all human?

Are there no answers?

Are there no ultimate truths?

And there are stories about the ‘wheel of life’.

We dream about the ‘fountain of youth’.

There is an unceasing desire for more.

A complex path to find the truth or any answer in life.

We tend to ask the question ‘why’.

Poetry is like a mirror for the truth.

Beauty is like a structure for the truth.

Meaning comes only in degrees.

Do answers really exist at all?

Is life truly its’ own reward?

The Minimalist

Love and use in good measure, so you won’t create needless waste.

I use to hate wasting things, because it is like being too wasted or messed up:

In this state, I only hurt myself and others. I only hurt and mess up things.

But being a human being is a messy business.

Life is also about finding meaning, a degree of order and a way to live in peace.

My mess is something to clean up. And because I love you, I will help you clean up your mess.

This brings meaning to our lives: community, order,safety and collaboration and cooperation.

I believe in a healthy life.

This gives me direction to change my bad habits into good ones.

To love and to use in good measure produces the good life when practiced in this simple way.

Yet, complexity weaves itself into all our lives. And a mindfulness about our practice can show us when we need help and work to balance our lives.

To some, excess spells trouble, but to the minimalist it is not to be avoided out right.

What is the right balance for your healthy Lifestyle?

NAFTA 2.0 OR BUST

What is going on with the trading agreement between these three countries?

It seems like two friends are standing up to a bully.

The Canadian Media are running lead stories that talk dumb to the reader.

With so much at stake, the economy of so much of the world and the specific trade arrangement of the United States, Canada and Mexico…

Automotive industry in all three countries like the present deal.

It seems Mexico puts together the labor intensive parts.

But the states want more of this kind of work done at home.

For political reasons not too clear, Canada seems to be siding with the Mexicans as the negotiations begin to move into high gear.

Canada promises a win-win-win.

Many argue things are good the way things stand, but the results of these negotiations may show that the Americans are going to retool at home.

Fair trade for all may seem like a contradiction but work based on the NAFTA AGREEMENT will be the backbone of this round of negotiations.

Good luck to the three countries trying to work things out!
