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!

I Watched A Speech In Rejuvenation Biotechnology By Aubrey de Grey, PH.D.

Is aging a disease? Can we cure cancer, and the other diseases associated with age?

Check out his book called “Ending Aging” to find out.

Can regenerative biotechnology reverse age related damage?

People and machines ware out. This is a physics fact called thermodynamics.

The damage is what eventually happen to the people or the machine.

“Metabolism>Damage>Pathology”

Why are we failing at diseases of old age, but so successful at diseases of the young?

Some people say there are too many things going wrong to understand the damage or old age diseases?

Diseases are communicable, congenital and chronic.

The aging diseases are essentially the same thing but to prevent them is to correct the damage using types of therapy.

The damage can not be corrected through diet or biochemistry at this stage because prevention has too much damage to correct.

What about genetic manipulation or pharmacology?

Where is the fountain of youth?

His “Fourth Paradigm” is called the maintenance approach and uses promising therapies like stem cells.

The seven major categories of damage can be fixed by this approach.

Is this the next leap in technology?

People will anticipate that this thing will happen very soon!

Is this a scam? Or the new science?

Stop Eating Sugar

Okay, people eat too much sugar.

It is in almost all processed foods.

We have sugar in every desert we eat.

We usually have sugar because of our diet.

It is a major way to foul up our regular body functions and propels us to many major diseases.

Try giving up all sweet or junk food and baked food.

Eat more veggies and protein and less starch, bread, pasta and fruit.

Your skin and teeth, gums and organs will work better.

You will have a better mood and sleep better at night.

It will be a big challenge and be as hard or harder than stopping alcohol and smoking as a combination.

It will help you loose weight, regulate your hormones and improve your health.

The only downside is it takes a huge effort.

Facing The Fear And Doing (Or Not Doing) It Anyway

Fear is universal but what we face is as special and specific as you and me.

Experience makes a good teacher, I claim to whittle down my fears, one at a time, in a way that does little or no harm to anyone.

I am a writer, my biggest fear is a blank page, the undone chore, the next obstacle in my way.

I tend to face my fear and the blank page is a struggle but my writing prompt experience will show me to write something about almost anything from my own knowledge base and experience. When I am open and honest the task of producing a blog entry is never that much of a problem.

This is my fourth blog entry today. I am busy facing other fears today: returning phone calls, going down shopping, going to the Zombie Walk, and getting home in time for supper.

Yesterday, I had to go to a new assignment. I am a cleaner and had to go do some construction cleanup. I had to met and greet the site foreman, assess the job, complete the assignment and deal with logistics on site. I had people problems, working with limited resources. I followed my own advice and did a good job.

The Holiday long weekend is just starting to unfold. Lots of family and friends. I’ll follow and lead and do no harm.
