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

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logan_Lake

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?

Judgement

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’.

Solo

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….
