Book Reader Beware

Okay, a good swath of books to belly up to me,my book loving friends.

Catch the morning light and read for a few hours each day.

Get it done, there are plenty more from where these come from!

Birthday Boy

62ish, eh.

Live, love and 😝

It has come and gone with a few minor adjustments to my desires and aversions.

😭, sarcastically, I worked on my birthday.

Cards, cake and happy birthdays!

Just another day to seize while time is willing and available to me.

Wishing all those who participate in such ceremony, a good time and well wishes.

I Wish To Die

Not now and not before my time.

When nature calls, I know she will do no harm to me I am not willing and able to accept.

I don’t wish to harm myself or others.

Nor do I wish harm to befall me.

But I realize, I can not control my body, or other externals.

And I am perfectly sane, I just believe it is to go gently into the dark night.

Death need not be the enemy.

As a friendly reminder of my mortality, he may show me dignity and respect for myself and others as we age and loose control over our bodies.

This does not stop me from seeking guidance for good health in all my affairs.

Death speaks to me like my imagination, it is insightful and vigorous.

It says, you are willing but not so able as you use to be.

Fight for your rights, but don’t needlessly harm yourself.

Live life to the fullest but don’t throw it away on self harm or the harm of others.

I am seeking out any wisdom that helps me be calm, still, silent and at peace with life (therefore death).

As I seek for meaning on my birthday…

Fact, I will be 62, but the day and month and year I was born will not say much but add more facts.

Yet, the important part of my birthday is about the truth and beauty….

Sometimes, I seek peace, when I am hurt and need to heal.

Sometimes, I seek pain to find the truth to earn the freedom and peace of mind that allow me to do no harm to myself and others.

Isn’t it beautiful how we can seek out meaning in life to help us recover from the harm that befalls us all.

I believe in living the good life, with and without pain when to do so does not harm me or others.

And I seek out ways to live a better life, even when I am happy in a peaceful way and do not have much harm to myself or others.

The truth is that I have no answers that don’t contradict the facts and experience in my life.

The truth and beauty will always be available as nature calls for my body, mind and soul.

It is out of my control.

But I can learn to accept it to some degree each day which will make my own passing less sorrowful, less harmful to myself and others.

In the meantime, I enjoy much of my present, past and hopefully my future.

After all, I am seeking a Happy Birthday!

Charterpedia – Section 7 – Life, liberty and security of the person

Department of Justice Canada’s Internet site
— Read on www.justice.gc.ca/eng/csj-sjc/rfc-dlc/ccrf-ccdl/check/art7.html

The truth may set you free but it is painful and requires a consciousness to make the effort necessary to gain the freedom outlined in Canadian law.

To do no harm requires the self knowledge and practice of habits that allows one to act without doing harm to themselves or others.

Some pain will be simple tolerance towards self and others.

Other pain will be born through the labor of the practice to master ways that enhance acts that allow us to live together in relative freedom.

Coupled with the legal system above, Canada will enjoy a pretty good life.

This is a best practice and the more that participate, the better ways will be discovered and put to good use.

But to find true happiness is a personal journey that requires one’s full attention at least part of your time.

This and the law are typically only as good as the people using it.

Engage Canadian law in a way that works for you.

I’m no lawyer but even I see the value of being aware of it.

Sentencing in Canada

Sentencing in Canada
— Read on lop.parl.ca/sites/PublicWebsite/default/en_CA/ResearchPublications/202006E

Engaging the law in Canada is dry in many ways.

Ethics consider some ways to brighten the cruel ways law enforcement and sentencing by the court treat people.

It’s like saying, how would you like to be struck in the face?

Recently, there has been some cruelty removed from sentencing which is considered controversial because of the cases it effects.

How can we be just when banality colours our outlook on humanity or being dignified to people?

Well, we are bias to that part of humanity we see as unfit, cruel to others and a danger to society.

We don’t always see this slippery slope.

Punishment is processed by attitude that usually colours our outcomes.

Today we use the legal system to regulate punishment.

Consider this when you deal out your own form of punishment to yourself or others.

‘Canary In The Coal Mine’

Climate Change/Global Warming/Environmental Change

Truth of the matter is hard to see, we are in trouble with climate change and have bought the whole package because we are procrastinating about our problem.

The truth is about garbage and pollution and the degree of damage that will lead to expensive and irreversible changes in the planet.

Can’t we see that the more we change/fix our problem now the cheaper it will be in many ways.

dry, boring, and hardly anyone is willing to scale up to this world problem with a world change….
