Socrates Vs. Mother Nature: The Death Of Christmas

In this dialogue, the Greek, Socrates, discusses the ‘death of Christmas’ with Mother Nature.

Socrates:  First, I want to make it clear that I do not understand Christmas.

Mother Nature:  Either do I, all the religions of the world, all have the same thoughtful virtues and holiday in their belief systems.  They celebrate their beliefs.  But somehow, humanity, is still unaware of their destructiveness towards me.

S:  Don’t you think we need to hear from people who were there?  You know, the super natural son of God, Jesus Christ?

M.N.:  No, I am supernatural enough at the moment.  Humanity has enough problems at the moment.  Don’t you think?

S:  Yes, we have enough problems too.  First, let me say, we mean no disrespect to Christmas, God or Jesus Christ.  Or any other religion, group or individual.  And second, the death of Christmas may be thousands of years away.  And who has the certainty to know anything that complex?  More importantly, you are more of a problem.

M.N.:  True, I represent the spirit of earth and the spirit of all that entails.  It is a huge short cut that many find hard to believe.

S:  And the point is to talk about the gift that keeps on giving.

M.N.:  This is true.  Every person, group, culture, and religion values giving or helping others.  And to represent this as such is pretty important too.

S:  And, I think I’d like to say, happy holiday to everybody.

M.N.:  Me too, and I hope you all practise helping each other and doing no harm.

S:  Me too.

Proper Use Of Impression

Image result for pilcrow symbolPilcrow

My writing philosophy is about being honest, authentic and using the proper use of impressions.  I also use the pilcrow as my symbol because it most closely represents my new thoughts or ideas.

I believe that is more than grammatical or structural as in “The first way to divide sentences into groups in Ancient Greek…”  To me, podcasts are representations of monologues and dialogues which also originated in Ancient Greece with the dawning of Western Civilization.

I think multimedia, in all its forms, including vids on platforms like YouTube and WordPress, are useful tools to demonstrate dialogue or plays.

It is important to recognize the advancement in knowledge through language and technology.  But to express the traditions from the past using forms and symbols that still capture thoughts and ideas that call on both individuals and groups to engage and become friends.

I hope to transmit self and ideas through argument or thought that can retain meaning and purpose through philosophy, knowledge, understanding and belief.

We all suffer from a deep need to know, understand and to be understood.

Please, become aware and support the effort.

To keep working on writing, photography, philosophy and general interest like poetry,

To be a practitioner of principles that show peace, compassion and simplicity in day to day living and the proper use of impressions,

To read, write, listen, research, watch, touch, taste and see…

To become and be a better person, perhaps experience, hope and strength to ‘do no harm,

To practice making more blog entries to inform, entertain and engage all of you.

Thanks for your experience, strength and hope,

Best Regards from me to you and yours…
