A Hateful Longing For Revenge

The lord of power spoke to me,

Through constant craving for more.

He said I was right.

She said I was wrong.

Neither accepted my hate or reason for revenge.

He said, to error is human…

She said, love your neighbor.

But I was hating and thinking of ways to get back at the neighbor.

A deep feeling or resentment for the humiliation, along with an overwhelming sense of pride in my ways to be in control.

All the while I felt and thought, friends would listen and let me rant and rave.

One friend reminded me of a error he made.

One friend reminded me of the love she had for her neighbor.

Slowly my pride lost its power over my reason.

My hate stopped throbbing long enough to loose some of my impulsiveness.

I started to feel some self pity.

It was a pity that liked company, but my friends would not stand for it.

They kept getting me out for walks and asking me about other experiences that showed alternates to hate and revenge.

Should I have isolated or drank a drug, I would have misbehaved in stronger ways.

There is no easy way through pain and suffering…

It takes all the friends and support I have to help me recover from the loss of sanity.

I’d be lying if I said I don’t miss the hate and revenge.

I can only remember a vague craving for them both.

I am grateful they don’t mean as much to me as my friends and my personal responsibilities.

The Athiest

Seeing is believing or knowing means more than believing…

I am responsible for what I say and do.

Yet, I accept mistakes in myself and others… to what end?

Yes, question me, and my kind answer has meaning and purpose.

Do I know it? Am I willing to learn and set right my mistakes?

Do not answer in haste.

Do not take a lifetime.

Do not take too long.

How long?

There is much learning to be done.

Learn patience, endurance and know thyself.

This is why belief is not enough and responsibility is earned through discovery of right action.

Much humility must be felt and no act of pride made, to feel humiliated is human and yet an act of violence, even against myself through ignorance must be learnt to avoid it.

Once learnt the violence must be cast aside to know my thoughts and beliefs so I can test my actions.

Again, to what end, to learn a response to my own ignorance and false ways.

No one is a saint or a sinner but many are false, violent and without a response.

Yet, when belief aids a human to better behavior, it can be helpful.

My arrogance stretches no further than my mistakes and the useful way I can find a good behavior and response.

This behavior is build on the belief, I need to improve my behavior and stop judging myself without need.

I need to be a lifelong student.

I need a lot of help along the way.

A lot more thought to this problem will be needed to find a mastery.

And yet, who is perfect or can keep the right action?

That is why my life is a work in progress.

The Revolutionary Human Spirit

Turn inwards to use the astonishing amount of human knowledge acquired from the previous three: the industrial revolution, the scientific revolution and the technology revolution.

Why do we stay so astonishingly ignorant about our behavior?

The human condition has petrified into a lump of poop.

We need to respect life, freedom of speech, freedom of beliefs, grass root conversations, being good citizens of the world, respecting other’s beliefs, promote diversity, and protect the environment and nature.

To flourish we need to strive to improve the human spirit!

The fourth revolution is the most important of them all.

We are all invited to come as we are, bring all your baggage, who knows, you may leave some when you go…

American Spirituality

Read and write, unplug…

Seeing the roots of the American Renaissance in their Spirituality.

What is our guide to our lives as technology eliminates people and replaces them with machines?

By living outside the norm, individuals put a face back on humanity.

To read Emerson, Thoreau and Whitman is to reconnect to past values which propose that people recover from the isolation and faceless aphorism we call ‘devices’.

A charter made of contemporary values might read peace, culture and eduction.

Let us strive, with our individuality to bring the ‘breath’ back to the American people.

International Women’s Day

Listening to women everyday of the year.

Dialoging with faith in women for the “me too movement”.

Learning to follow women, when their leadership need our support.

Finding connections with women in our common areas of living to build reconciliation for past wrongs through best practices and the justice we are all willing to embrace.

Learning better ways to live, laugh and learn…

Celebrate all women as equals and affirmation of current improvements in today’s society.

Calm Common Sense

Self direction is best done with a clear mind and a sincere motive.

Good support is also a true indicator.

My objective is a good lifestyle that works with the goal to obtain the outcomes of happiness and peace of mind.

My practice include the routine of exercise for body and mind.

By exercise I include healthy sleep, nutrition and work that keeps me safe and fit.

There are many ways and good choices to make these outcomes in my day to day living.

The regular use of my good habits and self evident outcomes prove to myself, friends and relatives their worth.

This is simple to say but complicated to produce on the regular basis.

Success and failure occur on the regular basis.

My resources are spent and need replenishing like everybody else.

Building commitment and responsibility to this end goes hand and hand with the outcome.

There is no free lunch here.

We all earn our upkeep on subjective wellbeing.

We all make mistakes and learn through experience with good support from family and friends.
