A Day In The Life…Of A Writer

Gawd, up at 5 or so, busy on my iPad reading and studying some topics for entries on the blog:  Day Light Saving Time (DLS) (Note to self:  Just made the same mistake about spelling this title i.e.) adding an ‘s’ on Saving, but I caught it.

There are so many things to do today, and I am in bed reading and writing for 2 hours.

I love my breakfast this morning:  smoothie!

Get dressed, put in a load of laundry, put the chicken breast in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit, do all that bathroom stuff, more reading and writing, and my 30 minute meditation using the poem, “If” by Rudyard Kipling for inspiration.

Time to organize another block of time:  Microsoft Office Personal subscription (update credit card for this account), install Excel , do excel, update 40 apps on my iPhone, look up definition of innovate=introduce new method to make changes.  This will help to keep me motivated to read and write.

I have a to do list:  Walmart, garbage, stretches, watch documentary about Canadian Youth Unemployment, Snakes(eating up arm/body) (brain storm this imagery), war/poverty, foods, breathing, relaxing, impulse -control:  don’t watch T.V., Visit Mom and Sue, Shadow Work, Movie:  Man In The Iron Mask, Book:  Don Quixote by Cervantes.

I think I will reassess the list above:  they are prioritized as follows.

Garbage, Go to store(Yates street Market is the alternate-leave of Walmart till next weekend.), check in with mom and Sue, Start Reading Don Quixote:  intro “Author’s Dedication Of The First Part” is a lot of fun.

Well, iff, I am alive at the end of the day, the visit to my relatives included lunch and supper and an evening of entertainment.

Must get to bed by 8, I will be up at 4:30 AM for work tomorrow.

Another day.

 

 

How To Operate My Will

Will power is a great idea, but it is greatly influenced by personal beliefs.

I know I can not sell the belief to ‘keep it to yourself’.

To me, I like to keep my desires on hold.

When I get too angry I go for a walk to cool down.

Then I like to journal.

Walking and journaling help me think things through.

Writing and blogging are good ways for me to produce creative products.

All my tools help me use my will to power what my moral compass is pointing to whether I am struggling, coasting or celebrating in the moment.

My life has more changes to live through and I need to use my will in a good way to live a good life.

Operating my will is the single thing I can truly control in my life.

I need to continue the practice the habit which uses my will to use the proper use of impressions and do no harm.

To me this is the single most important principle I can use my will to obey.

Again, this is something I need to ‘keep to myself’.

It’s really no big secret, but I believe it is the best way to live a good life.

Brain Loss

Sounds like looking after our brain is synonymous with over all health.

What is “The Brain Fox Fix”?

There are many descriptions of brain loss problems:  memory, intelligence, tissue, focus, volume, disorders, cancer, tumor, and Neurological Diseases.

It all seems too technical to start up.

Sometimes, a pro will write about the topic addressing us, ourselves.

Again, it seems too difficult to start a long program.

Maybe, the trick is to start slow and small.

Can you listen to a tape once a week?

Buy an audio book?

If this sounds like a selling job or a tribute to a specific author, you may be write.

But improved health is a personal responsibility.

This maybe a good place to start taking action to invest in your health.

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?
