Humanity’s Right To Be Fair

To be fair is not an entitlement.

But it is a right.

Music, math,myth, mate,

Music to warm the soul.

Math to model a better future.

Myth to demonstrate the truth.

Mate to make love, prosper and engage the world.

World Sleep Day March 18, 2022

World Sleep Day (WSD) is an annual celebration of sleep & call to action on important sleep issues organized by World Sleep Day Committee of World Sleep Society

Why Sleep?

It is equivalent to charging your batteries, getting a tune up, and healing all that ails you.

Google sleep habits, and consider picking up this good habit.

Sleep is arguably as important as movement (exercise) and nutrition.

Getting into sleep, monitor your habit with an app and learn to improve it!

To study a way of being like this one may be a good decision, but only you can decide.

It is a way that is tried and true, given the work involved it may be no simple task.

From my experience, being grounded with purpose is one angle but there are many benefits to putting these principles into practice.

A philosophical approach to good living may be an understatement…

I just cooked my lunch!

Who is cooking or processing your food?

I made some good kidney beans with onions, red bell peppers with olive oil, pepper and lemon. I guess I do my own cooking and cleaning. I think we they are good habits.

You may find yourself unmotivated to cook for yourself.

Perhaps the vid above will wake you up.

What Is Freedom?

Our free will to do what is within our power.

These actions may be bound by our constitution. Or the political will of our country or society.

But what is a will and how can it be free?

There are wills to power and discipline.

This last statement allows a certain kind of permission.

To be equal and able also implies we need to work to earn our freedom.

However, there is a means to freedom that has no bounds other than the bounds of the human condition.

These bounds are seen through the proper use of impressions.

Like using works to accurately describe a picture.

It will take many practice times to gain the proper use of these words.

In the same sense, each person knows it is their ‘will’ that they must use to discipline their actions.

The preconception that we will be free when we do the right thing or moral or be virtuous, is like naming the unnameable.

Hence, the need for philosophy to learn what way will allow us to be free.

Again, freedom can be illusive when we are blinded by fear or ignorance, but we must learn we are willing and able to be free at birth or through education or by applying our will and discipline to achieve our freedom.

No amount of rhetoric will make you free when you are bound.

To learn to live, requires a philosophical idea that knows no bound.

Some say that idea is to do no harm. The proper use of impressions and the practice to discipline our impulses or desires. With our faculty of will…

Veggies Vs. Meats

Is it reasonable to stay like we are and do what we do?

Don’t answer that, but perhaps it is time to look at what we are doing with food.

There is a great debate which involves many big problems on planet earth: climate change, to eat or not eat meat (our health and welfare may depend on it), and changes are being spurred on by new concerns and interest due to Covid-19.

The exact place to start in this quagmire of change may be to start reading about the great debate.

Please support the effort and read the link below about meat and veggies.

Invitation To A Good Life: my home, my book, my journal!

A book

Can you find a way to be happy?

‘All roads lead to Rome.’

Perhaps, it might help to choose a home?

Shall you live in the city or the country?

It is dangerous times, perhaps a stronghold in the country is best?

I personally have come to live downtown since 2006. I resided in another for some 25 years , but all the same.

My bachelor pad is spartan. It has a balcony which is its chief value.

I have transportation parked inside a gated compound which I access from my apartment.

My place has basic furniture and the necessities of day to day living. And I keep a few devices like my computer, e-reader , cleaning-eating-sleeping-exercise are all done in personal comfort.

I have my home office from which I do my work, study, research and journaling.

My book is my chief study. (I will list it above in a picture.)

My journal I will declare as my chief investigative tool that allows me to build a good life.

All these private matters are just a belief I have that will ‘invite’ all those who choose to listen on how to live a beautiful life.

‘Seize the day,’and do the same!

To Write: I will do my best and do no harm

The idea is to think about love and therefore wisdom.

It may sound precocious and selfish, nihilistic and deceitful.

Or it may have a poetic sound like a message from someone with a philosophical bent.

The virtue is nothing less than true happiness.

Define love, to be compassionate through working on being compassionate in emotionally challenging situations.

An aloof man with no willingness to cooperate with others.

He looses much but he is willing to take from those that give with a good happy manner.

He is far from hopeless but challenges anyone’s patience on every occasion.

To unpack this experience is to live through pain, suffering and may lead to a happier way of being, at least in a temporary way.

More, live with a good life in mind.

Be mindful of living a good life.

Bring that to your every life experience.

Not to be a saint, but to feel compassion and happy: I will do my best and do no harm.

Do no harm, live the ‘good life’.

Practice the ‘proper use of impressions’.

To be human is to be conscious and we need to be mindful and present to live a good life.

It is up to me to decide whether I will make good choices and make a good practice to live a good health span.

To find a confluence with philosophy, preventative medicine, mindfulness and being present to do my best each day is a mouthful.

So, read the article and find the best way to live your own life.
