The Theory Of Everything

It may sound simplistic that the universe started from a singularity.

Or that black holes are not that black, that in fact, there is some Hawking radiation escaping from them.

In his book, The Grand Design, he pauses to note the big and the small and everything in between.

The epic, the unified field theory is about putting it all together, questions like how does relativity relate to say quantum mechanics.

Imagine, making sense out of all of this…

Canada, among other nations, mark the passing of great scientists like Max Planck, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Their contributions to science are still being examined today and for many years into our future,

Love Songs To My Addicts

I say you are not alone when playing games on your computer.

You are not isolated when you are on your smartphone.

Or your distracted behavior is accepted by me.

Because I always love my family friends and relatives.

I romance them when they are lonely, isolated or moody.

I care for their well-being like I care for my own, and when others care for mine.

At times it is hard to love my addicts, but it is a crime to ignore them, avoid them, judge them…

Addiction is not who we are, it is only a symptom of a lack of love,care and attention.

I love my addicts and with a little help from my friends, this addictive behavior is just another transition from lack to abundance.

I believe we all need to bond, love, care and pay attention to our addicts.

The Philosopher King

Plato says this king is not like any other.

Can he led others, or follow when it is better to do so?

Does he know when the people are ready for a new law?

Are his personal values aligned with the values of the people?

Many captains of industry appear to hold the keys to the kingdom.

There are geniuses of every caliper, why not a wise living leader who can work with the people?

Some say this is just a catch all phrase for great leaders like Marcus Aurelius, Jesus Christ, Buddha, mahatma Gandhi, and many others.

Like all these great leaders, there was also good people willing to build a better way.

Who are these kings today?  Who are the good people?  What is the better way?

Subjectively we try to find a better way and practice it’s lessons and build a better life.

Collectively we collaborate and cooperate our teams to build a better way for many of us.

To all those philosopher’s, leaders, good people and better ways…

Me and My Gallbladder

A gallstone wedged in the liver or stuck in a canal that runs between it and the gallbladder…

Huge pain, from a bundle of nerves, it radiates under the shoulder blade or is it in front by the solar plexus?

The hot pain is constant for hours, finally a change, a gag reflex, heaving and up comes everything in the stomach.

6 hours in the emergency to get a bed and a blood check.

The doc sends me home, in the wee hours of the morning.

Slash 15 years later, I check my progress.

Still have gallstones, according to the ultrasound and doctor.

I am keeping a healthy diet:  much more veggie.

Is my gallbladder worth enduring all the pain?

It’s not bad when I eat right.

And I suffer a little in the late night and wee hours, but I am staying on track with proper diet, exercise and lifestyle.

My gallbladder reminds me what is important.

And if I loose it someday, it will because of an infection, or a good medical reason, not because of a lack of trying.

Glass Poetry

8 and a half by eleven,

A plate glass panel with engraved poetry,

Live, love, laugh…

Platitudes like ‘ meditate on good thoughts until you can meditate well.

Creating Paradise

There is a source that heals all pain.

But this place doesn’t exist on earth.

Some call it heaven, nirvana, the soul, the mind…

Ideas come to mind, like the ones by Thoreau and Emerson, Plato, Socrates, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, and many more less known.

What about the good part of you?

Why live by accepting help and offering it to others?

This is not about fame, fortune or forgiveness.

We all crave some health and happiness.

It is about the willingness to improve the way things are today.

If I Was In Advertising…

Would a company buy this ad?

Is it attractive within the boundaries of ‘The Proper Use Of Impressions’?

Why bother?

It’s all about learning which way to go.

It’s really a ❤️ hate relationship.
