Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.

International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.

Work Vs. Play

Stay ignorant or learn to get along,

Accept your work or give it up,

Remember your thoughts on the subject, your rights and privileges, the moral values and the ability to go with the flow.

Act on this knowledge as each circumstance becomes clear to you.

As a student, you must learn when and how to play, without harm to yourself or others.

So be a slave, but become aware of it, study your captivity.  And learn to get out of your prison.

Remember what happened to you and what it is like now that you are aware of all the details, and how important it is to change.

Do what is right for you, practice the proper use of impressions, or doing it right-do no harm to yourself or others.

And lastly, know the source of your life and problems and play it by ear, go with the flow, allow things to be, especially when they are out of your control.  And you will learn to be content.

Who knows, you may earn your freedom.  Perhaps, freedom from your situation lies within being content with what is out of your control.

Wealth

…is living pay cheque to pay cheque for most.

The desire to earn more or to live beyond your means can get us in trouble.

Quenching this desire is a skill worth acquiring ASAP.

Look around, can you spend five minutes a day with yourself to sort out these crazy moods, impulses to live in a fantasy or just abandoning ourselves at the most inappropriate times?

There are some habits or ideas that may help us live for better or worse, pay cheque to pay cheque.

What is the best habit you have going for you?

I need sleep, I try to get eight hours a night.

I have improved my sleep over the last year by concentrating on it and doing my best to improve it.

They say sleep not only keeps you healthy, but it does a lot more.

Building good habits keep me ready and willing to work to live pay check to pay check.

In this sense, I think I’m doing the best I can do.

But I believe there are better ways to live, and better habits I can learn to use to find a more stable lifestyle.

Good luck with your wealth, whatever way you do it, living pay check to pay check may not be satisfactory, but it’s not a bad way to live.

Ig Nobel Or Nobel (prize)

Although it is good to have technology and the transfer of knowledge is also usually a good thing, we still need to be a critical thinker, even a skeptic about the use and application of the truth.

Struggling To Make Ends Meet

The truth is about faith, fidelity, loyalty, sincerity, veracity and the agreement between fact and reality.

People struggle to find the truth and many rely on a ‘marriage vow’ to gain the veracity some people need to make an agreement work.

People feel and think about the truth.

They gain insight through experience with ups and downs of everyday life.

People develop faith in their truth over a lifetime of the good, bad and ugly.

The way to make the ends meet comes down to being who you are to the best of your ability.

Universal truth can set people free from the anxiety of being, but not the feeling of anxiety or any other feeling, thought, action or belief.

Being yourself is the struggle, being free is who you must be to see the truth and truly the truth will set you free.
