Mother’s Nature

Fragile and alone, she stood in the wind and snow.

She hated getting cold and the wind.

Yet her day began and ended in perpetual motion.

She floated on a sea within a sea.

She was a part of the universe.

More questions came to her mind than answers.

Who cares, her one thought was to do no harm and to continue to live in harmony with all her neighbors: the moon, the stars and other planets, the solar system.

The sun was beautiful and marvelous.

There was lots for everyone.

Why did humanity want to harm her in their home?

Processed Spirituality (Spiritual Junk Food)

Empty affirmations, multiple mantrums, no practice, no peace of mind…

With all the technology, and multiple distractions from all the devices, no wonder there is a lack of commitment to any meaningful path or way to be grounded and experience actual spiritual growth.

The cellular phone is meant to be wired into our lifestyle and for all intensive purposes addictive and permanently altering our ability to become “awakened” or self-actualized by a healthy discovery of who we are.

Peace and quite are not wanted or even soothing, without constant access we can not control our increasing need for constant stimulation.

Are we paying attention to our family and relationships? Work?, Do we have hobbies?

Do we even care about sleep, exercise and eating balanced meals?

Where is our purpose and direction?

There is the constant need for work to acquire the ‘modern lifestyle’.

Do we even know how to rest anymore?

Plant Therapy

Abele Green is my 15 year old Easter Lilly that needs a haircut.

She gets equal work for equal pay.

I have the responsibility to water, weed and repot her.

She keeps me honest and freshens up my place.

A reminder of my friendship with my mother, I try to treat her with TLC…

Love

Powerful feeling of attractiveness and fondness that is a virtue to build a better world.

Do not despair, remember our love congers all terror, deceit and pity.

Truth will prevail, all the world has this way, it must be or return to this natural state.

All throughout history this has been the way.

Remember this way when events find a contrary way, it will return and balance.

It has always been this way…

The Global Citizen’s Manifesto

You shall not die in vain, the people’s world citizen will meet to start a movement to right all people who face violence or persecution of all kinds: any kind of systemic abuse to individuals or group, minority or majority, indigenous, victims of all emergencies, poverty, illness , ad infinitum…

Does the majority make the law? A nation? An elite?…

Where is the law when these groups marginalize refugees and immigrants?

People fight for people, law is common ground, we need to revolutionize our emerging global crisis!

Reading The Writing On The Wall

It says there is a limit to people, places and things.

This is important when trying to assess the use or how to treat oneself or others.

The proper use of impressions is like having a moral compass with problems we are faced with in our day to day lives.

Sometimes it is best to follow the rules or tried and true methods worked out by previous generations.

The past has paid dearly for all the answers, wealth and experience past down from our people, countries and more…

Presently, we are learning much and receiving much that is roughly described as good bad and ugly.

And the future holds more of the same.

Yet, moral discernment is a complex ability.

We need to use it in all manner of ways.

Today I fail.

Again, and again, and then, perhaps I will learn to set myself right.

In this same sense, some of us live and learn to some degree…

What we write on this wall is a true measure of our moral responsibilities.

I like to read and believe ever word on this wall of ours.

May we all contribute many more paragraphs….

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.

Desires And Aversions

To have the power of negative and positive impulses, another words, of making good use of impressions.

If I have to die now, I will die now. If later, I will find something more useful to do: live my life the best way I am able during work, leisure and in all my affairs.

Stop acting outside nature. Exercise impulse by saying no and practice purpose, design, and assent when I am able.

Stop myself from writing pretty platitudes. I will restrain myself from accepting praise and be content to look like nobody. It is best to practice testing myself through self examination and question my affairs. I need to get to know myself rather than writing a pretty book.

I need to drop any presumption I possess knowledge of any use before I approach the proper use of impressions.

I can’t afford to blame others, they don’t diminish my use of impressions.

I can use these as virtual guidelines to live ‘a good life’.

To learn to led and follow others in this way, I must exercise each day, simple principles, that ask me to put up with pain, be out done in power and legal matters.

To be of any virtue, I must practice very few desires and learn to face my aversion in a calm steady way.

The Disease Called Loneliness

“Excuse me,” a young woman raises her hand on the bus. “Does anyone know when to pull the bell to get off at the mall?”

Meanwhile two other young women turn to each other with grimacing disapproval.

The individual is building self esteem and keeps low expectations.

The paired couple are attempting to discourage this young woman’s building her self-esteem.

The pattern of any person learning to get their needs meet can be taught by parents, schools, churches and by playing in other social groups.

To even make a friend is a risk many people will not do these days.

Social media and other devices are prompting people to choose a “bad behaviour over a good one”.

People prefer their smartphone to risking self esteem to pursue low expectations from social activities that are used as venues to pursuing greater expectations and greater risking of self-esteem necessary to overcome lonely feelings.

The “great debate” has yet to become public over issues of loneliness, but we can all agree it is costly and in epidemic proportions.

Take every risk presented to you, wherever you stand on the loneliness continuum to foster your subjective wellbeing!
