The Scent Of Religion

The association is strong with people and culture.

To understand humanity is to understand and accept religion within each of our limitations.

Not all people believe the supernatural aspects of a belief, but many love the ceremony, community and art embodied in all religious ways.

It’s true that there are difficulties in accepting the whole package.

Atheists are borne out of a strong desire to live without supernatural belief.

Many people have a good sense of skepticism in their day to day lives.

There is a lot more we have in common than we are different.

Science and philosophy attempt to fill the gap.

But we all look for answers.

And platitudes are mostly empty answers or partial at best.

So, the struggle to live and thrive is still a good goal.

I hope you continue to discover meaning and purpose for your entire life.

Insomnia

Everyone has had a bout of it.

Everyone knows what it is.

But it is a chronic problem in society today which is screaming for social changes.

We need clinics, education and to adopt good policies to prevent further harm.

If you want to look after yourself, read this article.

Why Do We Use Reason?

Besides having a highly developed brain and the good sense to improve, we strive to be moral.

And yet, it is clear we pursue technology and attempt to manifest life from it.

And yet, our reason is a kind of natural technology.

Who will be the poet scientist?

What is ‘the moral reason’ building for our future?

I believe we are getting around to living a peace filled existence.

Our wars are about learning to accept this life in a moral way.

A Woman Beggar

A brawny body of form she may have,

Her breast is not seen socially in a sexy light.

But her words and actions express like raves,

That her purpose in this life is full and bright.

 

She smells of stench, not a rosy smell,

Her voice it barks, all bellows foul,

When spirits rise, she makes a spell,

This life she lives, it reeks and howls.

 

Can you preserve her naughty, her nice?

Will you remember her lesson is true?

You can pretend she paid a price.

You can guess that she was blue.

 

Our lives are spent and forgotten, 800 years from now.

Individual lost and society’s found, just like the Tao.

The Challenge

Read, write, learn…

It is hard to study.

To find enough energy after a day’s work.

To balance a load that will make it easier to lift.

Read what you need rather than things that only make you feel good.

This can be extended to things I do.

I am not in school.

I am living ‘the good life’

To use this body is a good experience and to balance the work, exercise and play will help me reach this goal.

Much experience will complete this job.

Always to learn to be a better person.

Understanding Hawking and Herzog’s Last Paper: kinda?

A finite number of multi verses.

Multiple big bangs,

The universe is like a 3D movie with the screen making it finite.

You got to know your theories: Big Bang, Quantum Mechanics And String Theory!

If all else fails, I highly recommend reading the woman who is the Senior Science writer for CBC.

Walking My Life Away

I like to do as many activities with walking as I can manage in a day.

I try to walk to work with a backpack full of supplies: lunch, water, my debt, bus tickets and drivers license.

Walking to the library on the weekend gives me a chance to read and write on my blog.

My destination is better when I walk over to my relatives on Saturday and Sunday.

It is always fun to head over to the town square when an event is on, I usually go to the annual Zombie Walk and Protest Rally

Today their is a Pot Rally celebrating the upcoming legalization of the substance.

I am an avid photographer and go out often to take a few pictures.

Living in the tourist capital of Canada also inspires me to head out to many local attractions in Victoria.

If you can incorporate any of my ideas and follow the suggestions in the video, you will be well on your way to creating gratification in your lifestyle: good luck!
