Romantic Freedom

Socrates did it best.

He took the test: the proper use of impressions.

Or so says, “Xenophon’s Recollections of Socrates”.

She says,”The Memorable Thoughts…” or things of Socrates by Xenophon.

He gave his guidance through oracles and divinations.

He knew himself to abstain from all vices and practice all virtues.

He loved wisdom and showed himself to those through his questions and tolerances for all those who may take offence to his reason and his actions.

He suffered those others to be a citizen of the world.

He did not take fame, fortune, or foul play.

Practice and routine and ritual made great habits of virtue for the man Socrates.

He died as he did live: wisely.

He took responsibility to be free.

He worked his entire life as a philosopher and he became free.

What Really Happens As We Die?

We age, we change, as we grow older, as we loose more control over our mind and body.

We get ill. We catch colds, viruses. Flus, diseases like cancer, our immune system begins to fail.

We slow down, we eat less, we sleep less, we have lesser ability to live.

I am learning to accept all the above and more.

I do my best each day and do no harm.

Well Armed…

Do no harm.

Do your best.

Make a test for all the rest.

Stop yourself or arrest, then decide.

Do I choose freedom or prison?

If you have a choice, leave prison for later.

For soon, you grow old, loose everything that which is out of your control.

So don’t boast or be unruly. Do not sell yourself too cheaply,

In any case, do not prejudge but go bravely without blame, shame, or complaint.

Be always alert to follow the mantra of doing no harm and doing your best.

In this manner, one is being well armed in life to live well in any situation.

Stress Tip list? Write things down so I do not harm my mind with things to stress about tonight. I have managed my Xmas shopping and then some. I brought all my gifts ready for Don, and I have a few gift card holders for last minute possibilities.

I gassed up in case or when it snows. I am thinking the worst and hoping for a short week. The forecast seems bad till the holidays weekend: Arctic front.

I am working on stress management. I research ,read and blog about it.

I believe I can create a better way to live this way. A good life requires that I do the things I need and want to do to have a work/play balance. And I must maintain my boundaries while I do this each day. I need rituals and routines and practices. To engage my life, I need people, places and things. You can fill in the blank for yourself and others you choose or need to live with each day.

So often, I feel better after getting through the work and play each day. Then I rest and relax and get ready for another day.

‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love‘

Imagine what a concept like love was contained, used in the proper manner, and given a high priority when you become willing to act more out of the kind kind of wisdom love really is.

Wisdom is thinking or contemplating love on the day to day ways.

Queen sang that song, I had to Google it. The song meant a lot to me when I was teenager.

It means more to me because my thinking has changed in the last few year.

Now think about dying and living a little each day. About dying more some days and living more on others. Do you think love will help or hurt those outcomes?

It is a challenge for people to convince themselves about this crazy little notion.

I’m glad to get all the help I can.

Best Habit You Can Ever Learn….

Habits may need an introduction here, that being said, I recommend the power of habit, I am sure there is a good book on good habits like this one.

Still, how you do it may require a brief explanation. One point is ‘taking care’. Another is challenging yourself to practice ‘taking care’ for 3 weeks. And lastly, start with whatever is most important to you.

This may be physical, emotional or mental. Perhaps a combination of all three, at least at some point within the three week effort.

If you don’t understand why, you may need to do it on faith. It may pay off for you.

Now, the promise or benefits, you will feel better about stuff or at the very least acquire some self knowledge around how important a balance lifestyle may be to you.

You will get better sleep, nutrition and exercise. Become better with people, places and things.

You will find your bliss or lack of it.

Perhaps you will find a better way to take care of you and others.

Bottom line I give to Socrates, KnowYourself ! He said something like awareness is key.
