Love of life, the way to the good life.

Being in love, loving each other, finding love, a way to love, best friends and good times…

Emerging consciousness,

Just another way to know yourself…

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Beauty And A Promise Of Love


You two dear, dear people,

Who show so much affection

Although I be but a stranger,

Your invitation persists,

Don’t consider me a rogue,

Don’t forget me a scoundrel,

Both your lips are pursed in mocking affection,

I am but a man.

Gracious be your intentions,

To find a mate and a lover,

Your child’s beauty is forever,

And your place a home with duty.

I hope you capture more than love.

And wager more than life itself.

Truth will show way upon way,

For your need is genuine…

Love Again

Do a little singing and dancing and talking with me.

Do a little eating and walking and watching with me.

Do a little living and loving and smiling with me

Do a little laughing and loving and seeing with me.

Will you talk with me?

Will you listen to me?

Can you see how I feel about you?

Can you visit with me?

Do a little thinking about me.

Make up your mind about me.

Universal Peace and Happiness

The Dalai Lama said, the ultimate source of peace is n the mind-which, far more than our circumstances, determines our happiness.

CBCT or Cognitively Based Compassion Training is the next big tool for teaching the trait of loving kindness.

Accordingly, the person learning to be more compassionate is the first to benefit.

So, even if you don’t love the world today,

even if you don’t love your enemy today,

You can learn to love yourself using CBCT.

Another words, you will be a source of peace and happiness in everyone’s life.

Do you want to try CBTC or learn how to be more peaceful and happy?






Don’t make things into good and bad,

It’s not my job.

Passion gone astray,

Illusion is a mental demonstration of insanity.

Don’t act on reaction,

It’s not a very good job.

Rehearsal may make a good practice,

But bad habits are bad habits.

Don’t avoid decisions,

Some are good and some are bad.

Practice helps sort the good from the bad,

With support from family and friends life’s problems can be overcome.

Learning to live will make the experience a work of art.

The art of living is just another way of expressing the ‘good life’.


The most important trip is made from scratch.

Once here, the rest of life is still ‘important’.

To build a mind requires a brain to carry it in.

It probably is a good idea to leave it there.

A good mind will start to fail as the brain begins to do the same.

This can happen in numerous ways.

Many people loose their minds,

I felt a lose of mind in my late teens.

It has only been 4 decades, but I am starting to rebuild my brain and mind.

At this point, it is not about passion, but compassion.

It is not about intelligence but wisdom.

You can never have too much applied philosophy.

I am striving to live the good life.

The art of living is better than life itself.

Forgive Her, Forgive Yourself

She gave her life for you,

You can throw me to the dogs,

You really hate yourself, don’t you?

Don’t give way to hating…

Is that how you treat your friend, by throwing them in the garbage?

He loved her, he loved you.

And look, did she die for nothing?

Did they both die for the same reason?

Sometimes you win or loose.

It both amounts to the same thing.

Can you throw it all away and start again.

And not mention it to anyone.

To face death directly is better I think.

To face your fear….

The Faith Of Belief: Love Is…

The narrative of love begins with an experience and ends with a state of mind.

Together with the memory of sensation and this state of mind, each unique person can grow, share and experience this love over and over again.

Each episode of love can be shared and produce longer states of mind.

A strong state of mind whereby positive emotion supplements the experience to love yourself and others.

The love experience can be a person, place or thing.

Sexual love is absent of passion to destroy, limit, or manipulation.

There is also a noticeable absence of lust.

Loving another can be simple, compassionate and long suffering or patient.

Although, love can be used to describe the act of sexual intercourse, it also encompasses an experience with the beloved before, during and after sex and hopefully years to years into your future.

Love is agape:  love with all the disagreeable parts of the beloved one’s faults.

Philia is love of charity or giving to others.

Storage is a show of physical love through touch or expression like a kiss, hug or light touch.

Eros is sexual desire and expressed with intension to arouse or do sexual intercourse.  It is very provocative and can stimulate arousal.

The awareness of love moments help produce the very love you wish to prolong.

The reason for love is the state of mind.

The proper impression of love is not lust or passion.

Love is truth and beauty, that is all.

Love is physical, emotional, and a long lasting commitment.

Love has potential:  it can grow, change and diminish or dissolve.

Two people, with a willingness to experience positive emotion and ‘let go’ of negative emotion can foster a love for each other.  This experience will be emotional, physical and an ongoing experience.

To build love is a choice.

To destroy love is a choice.

To change love is a choice.

Where ever your love leads, choose to build a love habit.
