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.

Desires And Aversions

To have the power of negative and positive impulses, another words, of making good use of impressions.

If I have to die now, I will die now. If later, I will find something more useful to do: live my life the best way I am able during work, leisure and in all my affairs.

Stop acting outside nature. Exercise impulse by saying no and practice purpose, design, and assent when I am able.

Stop myself from writing pretty platitudes. I will restrain myself from accepting praise and be content to look like nobody. It is best to practice testing myself through self examination and question my affairs. I need to get to know myself rather than writing a pretty book.

I need to drop any presumption I possess knowledge of any use before I approach the proper use of impressions.

I can’t afford to blame others, they don’t diminish my use of impressions.

I can use these as virtual guidelines to live ‘a good life’.

To learn to led and follow others in this way, I must exercise each day, simple principles, that ask me to put up with pain, be out done in power and legal matters.

To be of any virtue, I must practice very few desires and learn to face my aversion in a calm steady way.

I love to journal,write and walk,think, meditate and become peaceful

I want to teach and become a student in my life.

What can I do about it: journal, read, write, blog, write a book and study to do it.

Most of the time I am curious about meditation.

Most of the time I practice being calm and experience peacefulness.

I love to learn and practice how to do all of it.

I believe that is what my book will be all about.

This is my journey what will be yours?

The Currency Of Love

Her coin is not gold, but energy is flowing from me to you.

What will you do in return?

My friend use to say, “It is only money changing hands”.

Yet, it looks like metal is being transmuted into gold.

I am energized by what I do.

Will you honor me by doing it too.

There is no price to pay, but perhaps we speak of gratuity.

Do we imagine a price that reflects what we do?

I believe I have found one way.

Can you?

Calmi Cuori Appassionati (Between Calmness and Passion)

As a student of life, I awake in the night,

Stridently, my heart, my mind is lost.

I have promised my return for ten years.

But with my father’s death, I have lost thee.

Shall I apologize, what can I do now?

(She was my life.)

My life returns, my life returns,

Her abscense is still felt.

What will be, will be.

Good bye, good bye.

Truth And Love (That’s what I have to get into)

Weather it is inner conflict or world conflict,

The cliche is that the truth will set you free,

Love is about being honest with each other and finding the truth,

Love is telling the truth when it would be way easier to tell a lie,

How can a ‘Facebook’ tell the truth or love for that matter?

Who is telling the truth?

Are our politics making us better at love and truth?

The platforms on the internet are challenging to news, the truth and love in our ability to learn and maintain the truth at large.

The politics and hate spin is making it difficult to follow up on the truth.

There is a lot of misdirection, confusion, and deceit.

In this sense, we are becoming global citizen’s.

We need to watch our learning to obtain the truth on issues we use to have handed to us,

Are you sure about what the science is on some issues? Global warming?, GMO’s?

What is ‘fake news’?

Take some responsibility and demand the best from the brand names of news agencies or people you can trust.
