The Writing Journal

Gripped in the Talmud of a tonality, a sweeping experience of true dissonance:  my musical journey.

Homophobic erotica depicting masturbation that is flaccid, frustrating and painful may be an emotional journey of letting go of guilt through association.

Tirade of emblems that presuppose design on all things made of god.

Or passionate rants about bobulous babes of the opposite sex (same sex, or no sex).

These canon like entries into my journal (or diary) are not meant to see the light of public consumption.

The truth is personal, specific to one’s own knowledge, stylized in their voice (using 1st person on many occasions).

But a journal may be on any and all topics that thwart or endear the masses.

Yet, not all reader or writer, neither or both hast gazed upon thine navel to propagate prose in this vein or humors.

Tsk-tsk, on one’s neighbour’s folly, thyself, and all…than roam upon this inhabited planet floating in the milky way.

Go now, and write upon the hill, your classic dialogue that speaks to one, no one or many!


Mindfulness, Meditation, and The Proper Use Of Impression

Is there a name for Buddhism and Stoicism?

Like there is a name for Taoism or Christianism?

In a sense, there is a lesson about ‘isms’.

In a sense, there’s a lesson in naming people, places and things.

Another way of expressing this tendency to identify and express is called belief.

In no way is this intended as a ranking or measure of a belief.

Yet, we all hold on to things with our mind.

Mindfulness is sometimes described as being present in the ‘here and now’.

Like Meditation is like learning to be aware without creating a belief or person, place or thing.

I am sure there are equally more valid ways to describe the use of these practices that help us use impressions in Buddhism, Stoicism, Taoism, and Christianism, or any ‘ism’.

Language itself has a way of impressing certain ‘ways’ upon those who read, write, speak and use the impressions of language.

The mind is a wonderful part of ourselves that can be taught ways that help us do harm to ourselves or others.

We even dwell upon our senses and being to some degree.

Yet, all these ways are steeped in a mystery that can misdirect the primary purpose: to learn how to be well.

The is a description not an indictment.

Desires And Aversions

To have the power of negative and positive impulses, another words, of making good use of impressions.

If I have to die now, I will die now. If later, I will find something more useful to do: live my life the best way I am able during work, leisure and in all my affairs.

Stop acting outside nature. Exercise impulse by saying no and practice purpose, design, and assent when I am able.

Stop myself from writing pretty platitudes. I will restrain myself from accepting praise and be content to look like nobody. It is best to practice testing myself through self examination and question my affairs. I need to get to know myself rather than writing a pretty book.

I need to drop any presumption I possess knowledge of any use before I approach the proper use of impressions.

I can’t afford to blame others, they don’t diminish my use of impressions.

I can use these as virtual guidelines to live ‘a good life’.

To learn to led and follow others in this way, I must exercise each day, simple principles, that ask me to put up with pain, be out done in power and legal matters.

To be of any virtue, I must practice very few desires and learn to face my aversion in a calm steady way.

I love to journal,write and walk,think, meditate and become peaceful

I want to teach and become a student in my life.

What can I do about it: journal, read, write, blog, write a book and study to do it.

Most of the time I am curious about meditation.

Most of the time I practice being calm and experience peacefulness.

I love to learn and practice how to do all of it.

I believe that is what my book will be all about.

This is my journey what will be yours?

We Are Made, We Are Not Born.

Let it Go!

The first 25 years give us the base for our commander.

Conventionality is the bane of our existence, but passion for passion’s sake can be a mistake.

What are we grateful for during the working years, the child rearing years?

Lay down the laws, but do them for ourselves first, be original, but moral.

From 25 to 50 we start to learn and create. We are busy. But we journal about everyday. We read everything. We store it all for the next 25 years.

The health we had we must repair. We must earn our freedom. Learn to learn, let the sanctions that frustrate our madness go.

Seize all the time left to us,make us expert meditators, give us strength and when we only have will to live, let us live within our shrinking limitations!

Let it go. Let us be century’s children. Keep living free. Read and write like there will be no tomorrow.

Happy Anniversary, even if WordPress and I have to say it.

A blog could be made into a book, but is there enough good content worth the edit?

I have used this platform the same way other writers do:  practice, produce content and learn to be a better writer or blogger.

It will be fun to have another seven years on this site.

Thanks for the chance to participate, produce and practice!

This Amazingly Crazy Wild Powerful Exciting Experience Worth All The Time And Energy You Possess

The horror may awake as a feeling, but the experience is in technicolor.

Or the banality is only a black and white version or a mere reflection of life.

The anxiety of being is real enough to make you itch.

You do connect with people and for the most part, it makes us better doing this little bit.

Many conventions keep us safe from each other.

Our minds invent more and more to produce material and morality for society.

A middle way is something society has been practicing since we lived in society.

But you may believe society is just a cartoon full of cut out characters.

Have you got stage fright? Do you see reality in a bleak way and misunderstand yourself in some basic way?

Move out of your comfort zone (or you may not have this luxury).

Examine life to the fullest and unplug from it all when you do it.

Maybe start by making observations in a journal?

Do you want a better way to live?

If not, go out a find a way that is best for you.

Uncover it. Discover it.

Learn while you go on this ride you may be stuck doing everyday.

Play safe, connect with others as much as you can stand.

But enjoy a little solitude, you may believe life sucks, but there might be a better way.
