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.

Science based self help is the best.

A very reliable book called “Flow” is the result of science and study.

The author, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is no slouch.

You can learn a better way to live life.

Good advice for people of all ages.

A modern classic worth the read and application.

Nobody wants to hear it (you do it when taking care…)

Be mindful, be here now,

Do no harm,

Practice the proper use of impressions,

What is your purpose?

Healthspan, diseasespan

Taking care of yourself and others,

The motivation to live a good life,

Simplicity, compassion and patience,

Compassionate Math

The democratic nature creates change, one vote are a time.

Remember to take what you need and leave the rest.

Follow your heart into the future that sustains earth and a global or universal citizen.

Practice non-violence, one kind act at a time.

Add your voice to the choir of love and compassion to grow a better life.

The economy of compassion is a currency to improve positive change.

Count each gentle, patient, self-controlling, good….

Add the good life and let the bad life go.

Use critical thinking to live a compassionate way of being.

What is the best antidote to fake news?

www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-the-antidote-to-fake-facts-real-ones/

Some good opinions are being frustrated by the popularity of Authoritarianism and fake news, hate spin, fear of the unknown and the effects of COVID stress.

I believe in two ways of coping with stress or any other problem life may throw my way.

The first is do no harm and the proper use of impressions which is something akin to living the good life.

An older, perhaps dated poem says, “…keep your virtue.” Again, not the easiest thing to do when times are good, let alone now.

And the other is more abstract, don’t act like this in public, but in private put your ‘good life’ to good use by practicing these principles primarily for your family, friends and self. Don’t do this publicly, put it to good use by working hard to do no harm and put the above principles to good use. With this kind of anonymity you are less likely to be harmed by fame or fortune.

You will be less likely to harm anyone through loosing your ‘virtue’.

But the pandemic is a special case, we all need to recover by doing what is best in our own situation and that puts public pressure on us all.

The facts are that these vaccines are our best good practice. The best science can offer. We need to have faith this is the best answer and curb unscientific, misinformation and fake news.

So, find courage to take the vaccine so we can take our best shot at putting this pandemic behind us.

Ideally, each of us has the ability to become a global citizen.

I do this through writing, travel, and working as a responsible person.

To act in a way to promote more cooperation and collaboration, but to sustain what works and find better ways to be free.

Be a part and make a move that works better today.

Human Rights Day

Insight from the Dalai Lama 2020

“Basically we are all the same human beings with the same potential to be a good human being or a bad human being….The important thing is to realize the positive side and try to increase that; realize the negative side and try to reduce. That’s the way.”

It needs to be said by the people we know and trust.

We are all trying to behave well and live a balanced life and living more in the moment.

We are trying to ‘do no harm’.

Please support the effort.

Self isolation is key, which means no gathering for Christmas or Holidays like New Years.

People are dying and we are so close to a working vaccine,in fact the first British Subject was given her shot today.
