Eyesight Scams

Nobody enjoys, phone or email scams, the problem is the prevalence of scams in all forms of multimedia.

Health can be a target of scams for various reason.

One example of an eyesight scam is the Bates Method. It has been around for an awfully long time.

I like to find ways to improve our awareness and habits.

Do you love history, character, point of view?

Just watch the vid above on the Russian perspective about Kutuzov without the propaganda or Patriotic exuberance.

The Power of Self

Self knowledge may have a resurgence after all the chaos on the society plate.

I need to reflect on my own power to maintain myself.

There is one fundamental truth, know yourself.

So, why do we doubt ourselves amd society at large.

I think it is due to self harm: the last two years has seen a pandemic like Covid and fentanyl.

Each of us has been challenged by these events in negative and perhaps more recently a number of positive ways.

There are many tangled up parts to ourselves that we process on the daily basis, but were overwhelmed by them these last two years.

I count myself lucky that it hasn’t been worse.

For the most part, I am grateful for my job, friends and family.

So, why state the obvious?

Recovery from our pain and lose over this two years means different things to different people.

To me it means do no harm, get on and enjoy my better day.

I still inch on with normalcy like everyone.

But I focus on my philosophy, family and friends with care.

I focus on myself and my work with care.

I strive to do no harm.

Recently, I have found some joy in reconnecting with old habits like going to the library.

Being a fan of the institute, I am happy to witness its resurrection from restrictions, and other changes.

I am beginning to practice my weekly routine to visit and borrow in person. I recommend “News and How To Use It.” It has a short introduction by a mainstream expert and an alphabet selection of his important opinion that will inspire those who need to know.

Lastly, I recommend that everyone needs to visit their local library once a week. Try on this good habit, who knows what you will pickup at being ‘normal’ in society at large.

I think we all need to reconnect with our society. Get ready for round two of the pandemics, we all need to take back our personal power by finding some recovery from what has happened over the last two years.

Henry David Thoreau

A Life

An excellent book by Laura Dassow Walls

Philosophy is never cheap.

Of the classical branches of philosophy, this one being aesthetics (concerned with beauty and art),

Both the author and the philosopher/writer/walker, bring the reader toward the metaphysics while exploring the inner space of inner peace.

Open yourself to the art and beauty here and now.

“Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

-Plato, Theaetetus, 155

The Simple Life

Living is doing, and doing may make sense out of the day.

What a routine: waking up to one, working through one, being with one, seeing one and so on , ad infinitum.

Philosophy is relating to common sense and doing it for the sake of itself and to produce more of it.

A bit like that snake that eats itself but being able to keep the malevolence out of the way.

Maybe that is the best way to treat it….

Life is important and the only time to live.

But death is coming and it happens every day.

Lots of books about it.

Lots of philosophy about it.

But it is important to make the experience be your own way of living each day.

Some say, each day is a blessing,

and philosophy tends to say an awful lot about life to express a simple way to live each day.

Most of us are still too full of ourselves to truly live a simple life.

Maybe that is the hook needed to persuade the majority of people to slow down a little and maybe even live a little,

Some phrase it like ‘The Joy Still Felt’, (an autobiography by Isaac Asimov) or living the simple life.

Start out this way, do it each day, do more and more and grow a simple way to live until that is all you do.

Consider this challenge to engage the moment and live simply as often as you and others are able.

You can’t go wrong.

Just do it.

The habit is good and is its own reward.

How Are You Downsizing?

Every good idea has a little magic reality and historical fiction to make it work.

So, what have we started and where are we going to end up?

When you know life is short (death comes soon!), you look around and things come closer.

I have clarity and do what is important in my life.

What am I over doing? Eating, smoking, alcohol, TV, Devices, One meal a day? Or eating too much?

What am I under doing? Avoiding my life, facing my fear, being present, doing harm, and the proper use of impressions?

For me, it is all about stopping bad habits, and doing good habits more often.

I am starting a new morning and evening routine that automatically guide me through them each day with a recording that I play and journal about each time I do it.

I do my best each day to be here, clean up, slay my dragon or do what I procrastinate each day.

Stopping bad habits and doing good ones.

The Spiritual Emerson

What has been suppressed in the American psyche?

How can it be awakened from its slumber?

The Essential Works by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Spiritual Emerson

We hold parts of ourselves hostage through withholding solitude nature and being our true selves. Or so says my friend, Henry David Thoreau.

We stifle our true selves, I agree, quiet time is important: inner peace.

I wrote, A Yankee in Canada which is a meditation of sorts about our suppression.

Let’s all wake up and sing a song that brings the kind of hope without weakness.

A hope that shows strength and a willingness and ability.

Yes, courage, compassion,self awareness and contemplation.

Think about reading Emerson.

Get the idea from he that knows the truth first hand.
