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….

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.

Can Philosophy Help You With Relationships?

 

 

There is a counsellor philosophy that is a method solving life’s ups and downs:  change.

One prescribed method is the PEACE method which is outlined in the book, Plato Not Prozac! by Lou Marinoff, PH.D.

Having an interest in philosophy seems to have spilled over into other areas of my life.

I suggest being a life long student in all your affairs.

In my case, I am curious about everything and there by developed a generalist attitude towards knowledge, life and my day to day affairs.

To put it in a nut shell, can applying philosophy to relationships help solve problem?

I believe we do it all the time.

To establish a set of rules or principles to live by is very virtuous and somewhat frowned on in today’s society.

But to be curious and want more out of life has given me license to see the sense in being more philosophical about relationships.

I am not advocating philosophy as a way to practice living with your significant other, but philosophy has much to give to us all in one form or another.

Secular World And Nonviolence

M. K. Gandhi made A case and point for a place for all regardless of sex, religion or race.

MartIn Luther King Jr. made another case to stop military action to help the poor.

This is not anti government or anti religion,

This is not anti sex or martyrdom.

Had these men not been assassinated the world would be learning more truth and love to prevent hatred and exclusion and other passive violent behaviors like oppression.

To truly and lovingly practice Nonviolence can help eliminate our major problems.
