Aloneness

“The seed of wisdom.” Chogyam Trungpa

Solitude is beautiful.

But no one will escape loneliness without a teacher.

Become aware of what is behind the mask,

And help others become aware of it.

At times to run seems like the best solution.

Or to hide out with others.

Learning about solitude can teach you a thing or two about isolation and being lonely and being in that body all by yourself.

So, don’t think for one second you can hide any of it by wearing a mask.

But today, COVID-19 and ‘the mask’ is an important symbol of loneliness.

And more of us need to reach out to others with the tools of our survival: physical distancing,self-isolation, masks, gloves, even toilet paper.

No one ever said loneliness had to be just loneliness.

Sometimes it can be creative, curious, fun, associated with helping yourself and others by learning to ‘do no harm’.

‘Live Long And Prosper’

be prepared to give a few things a rest and live moderately,

be ready to fail and learn from small failures to overcome it,

be proactive and use your skills to practice the common sense in the list below,

be your best self….

Ode To The Surreal

Oh universe, let me see bellow your panties.

The farmer got drunk last night and ran his undershorts up the flagpole.

How often does war evoke the words ‘dirty panties’?

Yes, says the universe, we can not see what lies behind the facade.

Farmers are the Shepards of the world’s food supplies.

War can not conquer love.

Let me see!

Drunk last night,

The blank page is no more.

So, be damned the logic that suffocates the wise and passionate, who love life like a family.

And, let the juxtaposition of images wrench all from their complacencies.

Stand up, wake up, get going!

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Yes, it is worse than the flu: busting the coronavirus myths | World news | The Guardian

The truth about the protective value of face masks and how easy it is to catch Covid-19

The Covid-19 must be serious or you would not be reading this on my blog.

Caution is the watch word, I am using about the article above.

Yet, some information is good.

It may be a good idea to respect this new virus and to get ahead of it by coming out with a vaccine.

And to keep fear under control by using what our medical authority can provide.

Children and elderly are usually more at risk than the rest of the population.

However, the disabled and immune system of some individuals need more assistance than most of us.

Don’t treat anyone unfairly because of your possible fears regarding the unfolding situation.

And please don’t dwell on the issue.

It is always good to chit chat with people we trust.

Stay tuned and informed, education is key.

Please support the effort.

Keep Your Head Down

When someone is trying to knock it off,

Trust yourself and others, but do no harm,

Be patient, don’t lie, don’t give in to hating,

Don’t look too cool or act like a wise ass,

Dream lucid, think straight, but slow it down when you obsess, try to possess or go mental with unrest,

If you can handle fools and accept yourself when you act foolish,

If you can met with success and failure like the same god damn thing…

Risk your money, risk your life,

Keep away from other people’s things.

Push that body,

Push that soul,

Make amends to the brave and old,

Build a willpower with good habits,

Never give into the crowd,

Talk with your betters but don’t forget people you care about,

When you can handle family, friends and people,

When your life follows up on stuff that works for you,

You’ll make a fool of me and be in on the gift to humanity…

Autumn 2019

The end of a month is coming near,

The day is clear and air is crisp,

The changes are all in Colour and are littered among dead leaves,

The mornings and evenings are fighting with winter,

Animals are still fighting with food for hibernation.

Another passing season readable within all the fine print.

Happy Halloween!

Do You Believe?

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_development

As a child, I would rub my tummy to express how I felt about gramma feeling ill.

The women of authority believed in my empathy for others.

My father also believed in my child empathy for others, as did his friends.

As a young adult, many friends and family, neighbors and community believed in valuing others and showing compassion and warm-heartedness to others.

As a writer, I have moved into experience with people and shadowing others.

As a person I am willing to explore beliefs and adapt to better ways in day to day living.

It is easy to see a wider scope of moral development from individual,group and resources beyond present use in society as a whole.

The opportunity is wide for lifetime use, study and change.

Moral development is part of a lifetime endeavour.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.
