The Answer Is The Good Life

“You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth.” Or so said the leader of a violent nation.

What more truth does anyone need about someone who acts on a passion to kill.

You probably believe that compassion is a sign of weakness. Don’t you? Oh, that compassionate fool will loose his life helping the poor. Who said helping the poor are for people without compassion, courage, awareness and contemplation?

How do you think good is done? Is it human nature to kill or be killed, never show kindness, let alone compassion, courage, awareness and contemplation? Through the virtues and appropriate actions, surly we are meant to help each other the way the foot helps our leg, and the leg the body and the organs the body and the brain consciousness and consciousness-everything else.

I’d like to believe that humanity is a conscious agent helping society, the earth and the universe. But some knaves and fools think money and power are the only important work to be done. Who are we anyway?

Do I need to show you more?

Do I need to write a book?

Next thing you will tell me is that every single human being should roll over or die because he is in pain.

Thought is a gift.

Use it to live a good life.

Be compassionate, courageous, aware and a thinker

The Evolution Of Wisdom

As we have grown in heroism, thinking, compassion and self-awareness…

This evolving nature is not about simple growth of wisdom.

It requires the nurture of a human being with all the surrounding elements: environment, society, resources, and a type of self actualization born through consciousness.

Living like an artist who is motivated by life to live a good life, is like using the self propelled properties found in teaching oneself better ways to live one’s life.

One Day Of Living And Dying

Or a movie, about some trouble doing both of these things because you know love is like that.

Women relating to people and all the above.

I am a writer, I like to experience all the stuff of a good life, and that is about living and dying and stuff like the movie above.

I don’t expect people to get anything out of what I say or do.

I really call myself into the moment from time to time.

This is the kind of stuff that makes life all the more important to me.

And that is why it is important to you. If you have a little extra time to live and die. See if you can spend a couple of hours and see what you can figure out by watching this movie or just reading a good book you want to read.

You won’t regret getting into knowing yourself just a little bit more.

It is a good habit, isn’t it?

The Routines Your Body Uses To Live A Long Good Life

First of all, it is vitally important to have good habits, practices and rituals to live a good life.

Or habits + practices + rituals = routines

You can use the above formula to test weather you believe you are living well or surviving well.

Second, living the ‘good life’ does no harm and may help you live a better life if and when you discover a way to improve your day to day life.

Picking good habits that do no harm is a good start.

Your body has discovered over billions of years of evolutionary history to move from star dust to the complex multi-organism it is today.

Each part of the body works together in ways that make it easy to live a good life.

But first we must learn about the habits that the body does each day.

We have the habit of sleep, eating and exercise.

Let’s take sleep as an example.

To sleep well, you must eat and exercise well.

To sleep well, you must fall to sleep for approximately 8 hours a night.

Most of us, take it for granted when we do this each night.

We do all of the following habits from within the body: produce all the necessary hormones, digest all of our food, have a healthy body to allow all of these habits to work.

For example, if we don’t have a strong enough stomach acid, we can not digest our food.

And as a consequence we will not sleep well.

The more we understand our body’s routine, the better we will live our lives.

This is an example of the mind/body formula above that teaches us how to create a better body routine.

Religion

Every religion teaches virtues like patience, simplicity and compassion.

Humanity teaches the importance of religion.

Therefore, religion is important to humanity.

I believe in treating people with compassion and building self-confidence to find the best way to live my life.

I like and admire the way the Dalia Lama expresses this to the world.

I am living a good life, and respect philosophy, religion and the humanities.

But I do not worship or devote myself to them.

I respect Authority and leadership in the same way.

This is why I think it is best for people (including myself) to listen and learn from many people who can help us find better ways to live a good life.

Please watch the vid below by the Dalai Lama. He is sharing wisdom that I believe helps me practice living a good life. And it may help others find some better ways to improve them while living the ways that allow them to live a good life.

The Challenges Of Being

The courage to be.

If a coward, stop and try to be a hero.

The compassion to be.

If hateful, fill your heart with love.

The self-awareness to be.

If unknow to yourself, bring your mind to bare on yourself.

The thought to be.

If ignorant, fill your mind with being.

To be or not to be,

Remember, do no harm.

Be calm, be still, be silent.

Practice thinking about love,

Practice being a hero,

Practice love in all your affairs,

Practice being aware of yourself,

This is the proper use of impression or living the good life.

To do this even when you are altered is a good way to be.

It All Starts With Us

Unity is a good word, like how we need each other.

You name your tradition.

There are other ways to unify, work, play, roles in life and community, being a world citizen, being a good friend, living a good life,

We need to stick together, engaging each other.

Otherwise, all this falls apart or worse disappointing and possibly disappearing from existence like a country.

Imagine a fall of CANADA, U.S.A., many parts of the world have lost their unity.

It sounds preposterous, and even a little unbelievable.

It may be time to turn inwards and learn what being one with one another means to you.

Living the good life.

I will do no harm, now.

I will do my best, now.

How To Practice A Good Daily Life

To start with, let people be, I do this with self-deprecating humor.

Let go of anger, use anger management.

When I am low, rest, relax and do no harm.

Don’t vent anger, don’t scratch it.

Let go of self righteousness by being light hearted at best and calm, still silent (at worst).

Sometimes, I need more sleep, swear less, rest more, walk more and move more.

All the above habits help me feel more positive emotions and less negative ones.

I think about anger to learn how to control my own.

I imagine myself in a humorous situation as much as possible-express humor as much as possible and live as simple as possible without causing harm to myself or others.

Voluntary discomfort is for advanced people living a good life.

Work for change and challenging ways to live each day.

Eat as early as I can each day and fast as long as I can the rest of the day.

Collect being uncomfortable each day-meeting my goals, facing my fears each day.

Practice engaging people and connecting with others each day.

Let go of comforts like watching TV. I do not need TV, I want it. I let it go.

Practice philosophy, photography and writing each day.

My passive nature needs to be overcome at every turn.

I do live as much as I can each day.

Endurance is something left to someone advanced in living the good life.

Simplicity in lifestyle is best left to someone advanced in living a good life.

No car is best for me. I enjoy a work vehicle at my disposal, but prefer not to own my own.

I recommend people to stop buying things when they believe it is best for them.

To stop acting on desire is the best way to live a good life.

To be less of a consumer is my goal.

Constantly prepare for hardship. Because to let go of my fear of death, loss and hardship is the best way to be willing and able.

I need to face my personal fears: dying from an aneurism found by an ultrasound a few years ago.

I have little chance of this happening but it is my personal fear.

I need to find positive role models like older philosophers who believe in living life to the fullest within my limits.

I believe in living life to the fullest within my limits.

I believe in helping my family and friends to the best of my ability within my limits. Do no harm.

I practice internalizing my ways to live a full life because it does no harm to me or others.

I sometimes need to be rich and hard to myself and others when it is time to be responsible for myself or another.

I also need to stop certain habits because they harm me. I drink and eat in moderation for this reason.

I am growing older and accepting my new found limits.

I am more calmer, and less anxious, less sarcastic, less negative emotions and more positive emotions.

I am less complicated and more simple, in a good way.

To continue being more joyous, grateful and positive is part of my outcomes of living a good life.

Until one discovers this within, the outcomes are just symptoms of living a good life.

My philosophy proves my good life to myself, a better life is possible through my practice.

A long life and a good one is my goal.

For all these reasons, I recommend thinking about living a good life, after all, it is just putting into practice the ways I think love is to be practiced in a good life.

The Form Of Good: Beauty and Truth

To see inwardly and become aware of the moment will help one see truth and beauty.

But to really understand and research the idea, books ranging on many ideas are wanted and necessary to develop a probing interest towards intent and the meaning of living a good life without unnecessary expectation, pain and suffering, or unnecessary loss.

Most, believe in the ‘ups and downs’ of a good life.

Most, believe this because experience shows we can not control much of what goes on in the world.

Some, believe the good life is about seeing that ‘no harm’ and attending to the day to day is a good foundation.

Much is achieved in the world when people who essentially practice this ‘good life’ will cooperate and colaborate.

With some luck and good fortune, a life is a wonderful experience.

To use the ‘proper use of impressions’ are to live well and prosper.

Is ‘Good’ It’s Own Reward?

History will tell the story.

But before that comes personal experience.

I have seen some good in my time.

For instance, learning to do good.

There is a tipping point where enough personal experience will show perspective.

There are a lot of feelings, thoughts, actions and belief that need to occur to build up enough experience to glimpse the truth.

I am not trying to convince anyone of the truth.

To be honest, most of us need to learn enough to find the way.

But I have discovered a good feeling, leads to a good thought which leads to a good action that produces a good belief. And that will help build a vision for my future.

Now, I can’t get there myself.

I have learnt that I need to cooperate with others in a good way to overcome the mistakes that others will do with me. I am not blaming others.

There is a lot of people that are still busy learning from their mistakes. Just like me.

To visualize where I want to head in my future, I have been targeting specific beliefs in my life. This is not a recipe for truth. What is good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander. Or it may not work for you.

There is an axiom in my life: the hole in my heart THAT needs to be healed by doing good for myself and others.

There is another axiom that might be useful, it is for me, consciousness is like an onion, its development is in layers.

I believe I am developing a consciousness my entire life. As I progress, I am able to live a better and better life. My life will never be perfect, but with the appropriate ‘good’ in my life, I can learn to build a improved version of the life I am building at the moment.

I believe that seeing the good in myself and others allow me to control myself in better and better ways.

But another way, I learn from my mistakes because I admit my mistakes and cooperate with others that are willing to help me change for the better.

I have learnt I need to find ‘good’ to heal my heart when it becomes harmed by myself or others.

Philosophy has shown me to examine the reality in my life to overcome my own desire.

But that is another story.

At first this meant to abstain from acting on desire until I can overcome my craving or lack of self control.

Eventually, the same belief grew into I no longer crave this same desire, or I have no desire for this particular thought, action and belief and experience it for its good.

I am saying that I believe it is possible for me to learn to overcome unhealthy desires and change enough to live with healthier choices.

It is like the pain I felt in my heart has healed and I still recognize the folly that use to attract me to do bad for myself and others, but now I feel the good in the exact situation but only choose good.

My personal belief is that we all grow our own conscious based on our choices.

Therefore, good is its own reward.
