A Poet’s Muse

The truth is a mean mistress.

She fights you for love and hate.

She may value what you may not,

Or laugh when people cry,

She calls everyone a liar,

Why does she tell the truth?

Her philosophy is partial to virtue,

Her voice depends on my good work.

Her stunning nature reveals all to anyone with no reservation.

My mind blisters looking into her face.

Her power overwhelms the human race.

She answers all her calls

And always stands her ground,

I dare to love her ways.

I blame myself when she is misunderstood,

I can’t help acting like a knave in her presence.

She is demanding, selfish and pure! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth?wprov=sfti1

Michael’ Secrets

Perhaps ‘private practice ‘ is a better term.

I usually make a first and second draft.

Why fly without a net, I can see why I might keep money secrets, writing secrets, blog secrets.

Being anonymous has similar benefits,

Preparation is better than sloppy craft or a poor choice.

‘Do no harm’ is my motto, better ‘Michael’ is my goal.

Judgement

Don’t make things into good and bad,

It’s not my job.

Passion gone astray,

Illusion is a mental demonstration of insanity.

Don’t act on reaction,

It’s not a very good job.

Rehearsal may make a good practice,

But bad habits are bad habits.

Don’t avoid decisions,

Some are good and some are bad.

Practice helps sort the good from the bad,

With support from family and friends life’s problems can be overcome.

Learning to live will make the experience a work of art.

The art of living is just another way of expressing the ‘good life’.

Solo

The most important trip is made from scratch.

Once here, the rest of life is still ‘important’.

To build a mind requires a brain to carry it in.

It probably is a good idea to leave it there.

A good mind will start to fail as the brain begins to do the same.

This can happen in numerous ways.

Many people loose their minds,

I felt a lose of mind in my late teens.

It has only been 4 decades, but I am starting to rebuild my brain and mind.

At this point, it is not about passion, but compassion.

It is not about intelligence but wisdom.

You can never have too much applied philosophy.

I am striving to live the good life.

The art of living is better than life itself.

Grab A Meeting With Society’s Daughter

People today, meet less and text more. Women meet and argue about what look they will use to move us forward from the millennia of awkwardness and backwardness. They will claim the power they need to contribute to this move and engage all along the path to a better future.

Dante is curious to know her mind.

Beatrice leaves her girlfriends to engage the observer.

Beatrice: Hello, my eyes invite you to a conversation. Have you not to say?

Dante: You ask too much from this asp. I must delay.

B: Surely, you prattle on about my whimsy?

D: I like the look of you, what will you do?

B: First, I will say how backwards this seems to me. And I invite my girls to participate.

D: My boyfriends are ready to jump in and make some moves.

B: Good, humanity acts like a fool. Can you stave your knave and avoid me?

D: I can, but at what expense?

B: Power and envy will get us nowhere.

D: Why play with words?

B: Because that is all you can see, I want to move forward.

D: Very well, I agree.

The Finite Optimist

As Kipling once wrote, don’t make dreams your master, or thoughts your aim.

To act in accord with dream and thought is an art.

The proper action for the proper thought or dream requires a saints heart and an engineers mind.

It is practical to have a set of rules that allow us to uncover the secrets in life and explore the unknown.

We need to read far and wide and understand to envision the progress the future will hold.

Can you treat your body properly so it will function and stay healthy?

Can you process and build on earth to help it function and stay healthy?

These mysteries require discovery, recovery and more.

Go explore.

Monopoly

To create and innovate is process of thinking and producing a product in a competitive market.

To escape this death by a thousand cuts you must deliver it all in a new way.

You need to be the first and therefore the best.

As a reward you win the ‘game’ and get to escape the competition to become a monopoly.

Going viral is growing vertical not being a copy cat or competitive.

To use flow as a metaphor might be useful.

All your values or fruit of your innovative and creative endeavours bind together to make you the strongest and smartest competitor with the best innovative and creative product.

Your ‘starting up’ allows you to cooperate and collaborate and think to create and innovate.

Be a lean work of art and go viral!
