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.

Municipal Elections 2018: Four more years!

Victoria voting elected Lisa Help as mayor who was endorsed by David Suzuki to clean up this city for the future.

Moral Conundrum

She lapsed with her virtues…

He made his own bed, now he has to live in it…

To be human means vice and virtue, how to forgive and forget…

It is real for you and me.

What is the social contract?

Where are we today, collectively and as an individual?

Do no harm, admit mistakes, forgive and forget (even myself), much easier said than done, but that’s the challenge!

The Proper Use Of Impression

Good habits become manageable through learning to understand and follow a good life.

Like the power of meditation, the fruits come with the labor of love.

For each individual the experience is uniquely tailored to his/her experience of this understanding.

With moral progression the mind and body experience a kind of unification.

This is not religious but more of an awakening experience.

Although there is no spiritual component, there are elements of relationship to nature, oneself and other people.

In no sense is this spiritual or religious or pantheistic.

The work is it’s own reward: living, laughing, learning to be.

Perhaps, beauty and truth emerge like a personal philosophical experience.
