International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.

Child Abuse Is Plain And Simple

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turpin_case

Children’s rights are front and centre when considering extreme examples of child abuse.

The world may harbour many more problems for the special needs of children.

We need a charter for children’s rights to help support the legal rights and obligations for them.

Clarifying Mental Comfort

I’ve always found the comparison of mental comfort and religion or atheism to be of little or no use.

I’d prefer a quiet time to myself rather than seek inner peace to relieve my anxiety and despair.

Yet, the way I am is primarily based on the way I live.

I consciously live to find and practice a healthy balance between mental and material comfort.

This requires me to learn about the way people believe and find the way that works best for me.

I believe we all do it the same way.

We learn what we feel, think, behave, and believe.

We keep a balance between our physical well being and mental well being.

There is the sense of a higher self or purpose in actions because they resonate with cultural beliefs which may or may not be religious.

Finding joy in one’s endurance of pain, other suffering and our experience, strength and hope is at the core of this endeavor.

I hesitate to call this spiritual or religious because of the labeling nature of our minds.

So, I choose to call it grounded to the culture of humanity.

Our way to be healthy human beings.

Not that I can speak for humanity, I am happy to speak for myself as a happy human being.

Self-simplicity, self-compassionate, self-patience

Wiser people than me say, “you should take care of yourself before it is too late”.

Perhaps prevention is the cure, but the work isn’t easy to do.

You can wait too long and the consequences are you are not fit for yourself or anyone else.

Perhaps these new words make sense of the job you need to do?

Pause, calm down, rest and relax, do any of these words ring a bell?

Clear, easy to follow, one thing at a time…

Live the good life and life gets better than bearable.

Virtue’s Too Nice For Avarice And Vice

Or are they one and the same,

Every vice has a craving associated with it.

Every person has a vice and a craving,

‘Who does it’, may sound like the right question.

How often…

Place vice on a pedestal and get really bad.

Deadly sin no longer has a ring on its finger.

Mortal has a better sound, had the flu of late.

Make me date,

There are viruses that would make your hair curl.

The body can’t tell the difference between protein and a virus.

All roads lead to recycling,

Who said anything was good to eat,

We better beat that drum.

Rum, rum, rum.

The race, the digital age, designer drugs

The timer is set, watch the news to hear the latest doom and gloom.

Set the stage with disaster to welcome our next triumph: recycle, reuse,

Are we part of a life cycle or a death cycle?

Cloister, cluster, life can be a mom with despair.

Yet, we are topping out with our population and poverty has been cut in half.

The good news and good life is a proposition.

Gravity is good when it holds things together.

Universal is almost as big, we strive to bring ever piece together.

Gloms together like real life, can it get any better?

Torture Due To Racism

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sterilization_of_Native_American_women

pain and violence leave scars on all people.

healing hurts but paves the way for opening education, prevention and awareness.

to describe the problem is to openly talk about indigenous women being viewed in untrue hateful ways and harmed in many more.

it may be time to read and listen carefully about this canadian torture.
