Why’s

Bored stiff, student learning to decide how to behave when bored.

Aversion needs to be manageable,

Whatever the anger, breaking it into smaller pieces until you can accept the feeling without doing harm.

Whenever a craving results in harm, break it down until you can accept the feeling without doing more harm.

Practice dealing with aversion until all aversion is manageable.

Then start with whatever topic brings up desire, breaking it into smaller pieces until you can accept the feeling of desire without doing harm.

Whenever a desire results in harm, break it down until you can accept the feeling without doing more harm.

Practice dealing with desire until all desire is manageable.

This practice is easier said than done, it requires a lifetime commitment.

I am a lifetime student of aversion and desire.

A spectrum of possible outcomes exist in reality,

Not to put too fine a point on it, ‘we live a little and die a little’…

Like Hailie’s Comet, the cycle may only come around in along time

Or like some moths, a life cycle may be a few day.

To live a life worth living, most of us put limits on what we do,

A happy medium is usually the rule of thumb.

Society is complex, and what is good for society is the rule,

But what is good for the individual does not always align with society,

Currently there are many outcomes that fall short of the individual but bode well for society.

Education is the key to making a informed decision:

Officials have unveiled a new proposal that will help fund plans to implement universal basic income across the country.

As more and more jobs are threatened by robots, officials have come up with a plan to eventually introduce universal basic income – which is basically a minimum salary that will be paid to all it’s citizens. Though it seems like a great idea, it will be expensive. How expensive? At least $43 billion.

To pay for it, early this week it was announced that online casinos would be permitted to operate. It’s expected that tax revenues collected from these online casinos and those from marijuana will be enough to pay for its plans to implement universal basic income.

“We have decided to permit online gambling and allow a few licensed and regulated casinos who have been determined to be legitimate and real. The taxation structure will be similar to how existing lottery systems operate, except this will be on a bigger level.

When questioned as to what would happen with tax revenues in the meantime, they said “these tax revenues will go towards funding various pension plans, and later, these two will be replaced with a universal income system.”

After the announcement was made, it was said that only a few online casinos are permitted to operate in the country, with Grand Mondial receiving the first license “because they helped draft legislation, and have been reviewed and examined to be fully compliant and legitimate.”

Baby Boomers

http://www.pastfactory.com/2018/03/09/quiz-are-you-a-true-baby-boomer/?utm_content=quiz-&utm_medium=quizresultsshare&utm_source=tb&utm_campaign=1443378-tb

This group of people had a softer simple life because of money, low population, and less technology.

But they went through a lot of social change in the sixties, seventies and eighties.

Their relative lack of technology left them with a slower, but more physical society.

Yet, to live through change is hard for anyone and any generation.

We are all the same in this respect.

There are many Baby Boomers alive and well living in society today.

Ask them to take the quiz above with you and get to know your neighbor, friend or relative.

A Poet’s Muse

The truth is a mean mistress.

She fights you for love and hate.

She may value what you may not,

Or laugh when people cry,

She calls everyone a liar,

Why does she tell the truth?

Her philosophy is partial to virtue,

Her voice depends on my good work.

Her stunning nature reveals all to anyone with no reservation.

My mind blisters looking into her face.

Her power overwhelms the human race.

She answers all her calls

And always stands her ground,

I dare to love her ways.

I blame myself when she is misunderstood,

I can’t help acting like a knave in her presence.

She is demanding, selfish and pure! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth?wprov=sfti1

Seeing The Light

I need to visualize the short story, draw it, see or show it, even when I tell it.

Like a movie, like a story, this is life or is it the other way around?

Can a writer alter his trait?

The short story is in my beholding eye.

Imitation is art because you can show and tell it.

Life can only be expressed through the will.

A decision needs to be made to move foreword.

And some mistakes happen along the way.

Life is about success and failure.

Many failures need to take place when the blueprint is unavailable for guidance.

The best blueprint I see is when I become aware of who I am in this moment.

These snap shots add to being alive and using the proper impressions.

The art work is just a beautiful story:  the truth.

It is my pleasure to attend to both in my lifetime.

Better to bloom late than not at all!

 

Not A Solo Artist, playboy or a loner…

As a man, I see a woman.

As a solo artist, I see people.

As a playboy, I get to meet women.

As a loner, I get to miss women.

People need each other, and I am good people.

People are basically good.

But I need direction like everyone else.

Looking for her is part of my daily duty.

Finding her requires that I am willing and able.

I prefer to accept the help of friends and relatives.

But my heart will always stay ready to risk it all on a lady who is ‘willing and able’.
