The Athiest

Seeing is believing or knowing means more than believing…

I am responsible for what I say and do.

Yet, I accept mistakes in myself and others… to what end?

Yes, question me, and my kind answer has meaning and purpose.

Do I know it? Am I willing to learn and set right my mistakes?

Do not answer in haste.

Do not take a lifetime.

Do not take too long.

How long?

There is much learning to be done.

Learn patience, endurance and know thyself.

This is why belief is not enough and responsibility is earned through discovery of right action.

Much humility must be felt and no act of pride made, to feel humiliated is human and yet an act of violence, even against myself through ignorance must be learnt to avoid it.

Once learnt the violence must be cast aside to know my thoughts and beliefs so I can test my actions.

Again, to what end, to learn a response to my own ignorance and false ways.

No one is a saint or a sinner but many are false, violent and without a response.

Yet, when belief aids a human to better behavior, it can be helpful.

My arrogance stretches no further than my mistakes and the useful way I can find a good behavior and response.

This behavior is build on the belief, I need to improve my behavior and stop judging myself without need.

I need to be a lifelong student.

I need a lot of help along the way.

A lot more thought to this problem will be needed to find a mastery.

And yet, who is perfect or can keep the right action?

That is why my life is a work in progress.

The Theory Of Everything

It may sound simplistic that the universe started from a singularity.

Or that black holes are not that black, that in fact, there is some Hawking radiation escaping from them.

In his book, The Grand Design, he pauses to note the big and the small and everything in between.

The epic, the unified field theory is about putting it all together, questions like how does relativity relate to say quantum mechanics.

Imagine, making sense out of all of this…

Canada, among other nations, mark the passing of great scientists like Max Planck, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Their contributions to science are still being examined today and for many years into our future,

International Women’s Day

Listening to women everyday of the year.

Dialoging with faith in women for the “me too movement”.

Learning to follow women, when their leadership need our support.

Finding connections with women in our common areas of living to build reconciliation for past wrongs through best practices and the justice we are all willing to embrace.

Learning better ways to live, laugh and learn…

Celebrate all women as equals and affirmation of current improvements in today’s society.

Love Songs To My Addicts

I say you are not alone when playing games on your computer.

You are not isolated when you are on your smartphone.

Or your distracted behavior is accepted by me.

Because I always love my family friends and relatives.

I romance them when they are lonely, isolated or moody.

I care for their well-being like I care for my own, and when others care for mine.

At times it is hard to love my addicts, but it is a crime to ignore them, avoid them, judge them…

Addiction is not who we are, it is only a symptom of a lack of love,care and attention.

I love my addicts and with a little help from my friends, this addictive behavior is just another transition from lack to abundance.

I believe we all need to bond, love, care and pay attention to our addicts.

Glass Poetry

8 and a half by eleven,

A plate glass panel with engraved poetry,

Live, love, laugh…

Platitudes like ‘ meditate on good thoughts until you can meditate well.

Creating Paradise

There is a source that heals all pain.

But this place doesn’t exist on earth.

Some call it heaven, nirvana, the soul, the mind…

Ideas come to mind, like the ones by Thoreau and Emerson, Plato, Socrates, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, and many more less known.

What about the good part of you?

Why live by accepting help and offering it to others?

This is not about fame, fortune or forgiveness.

We all crave some health and happiness.

It is about the willingness to improve the way things are today.

People Who Grew Humanity

These men were homeless and meditated their way into the hearts of the people.

Many believed in philosophy based on sound principles like love, peace, charity, goodwill, non-violence, equality, freedom and many other universalities.

We all have the choice to embrace such a good practice in which every religion, nation and people have used since the beginning (and all will have the chance to use until the end).

It seems almost conducive to homelessness, meditation and a desire to live a better life.

But there seems to be help for any lifestyle or individual or group.

It is also true that all these leaders suffered terribly by the oppressors of the time.

It seems a good exercise to study these people and to learn their practices and perhaps put them to good use.
