What I Say, As A Confirmed Bachelor

She decides whether to follow my every move.

What I do, when she changes her mind and wants to lead, is to follow her every move.

She watches my every move.  Or she feels confident that she has the right to do so whenever she believes it is the right move.

What I do, is learn to listen and watch her watch my every move.  I like her to think that I need her support and care.  But I love her because of her compassion for others, as she is learning to know my compassion for her and others.

But it was not always so, she thought me overconfident, lacking in commitment, and sorry judge of character.

Her and I are good friends, but she wanted children and a higher standard of living.

I respect the way society teaches us these traits.

But for me, I value the good life and to accept the present when all my efforts fail to change it.  Some call it acceptance, I call it being willing to accept the situation when my ability is blocked by a bigger problem or perhaps a more important trait.

I value inner peace, compassion and mindfulness.

She values the best she can have for her family and children.  She considers her husband to be an equal partner.

I have outlived my time for her dream, but I am still making my dream true everyday.

She values my friendship like I value her family and children.  And I am grateful she has such a loving and committed husband. 

Today I dream that everyone can find inner peace, compassion and mindfulness.

Although, I do not find this for myself everyday, I am given support by others who have found it and are willing to share.

And my aim and intension is to share with all who are willing and able to do the same.  And I am learning to share with those who are unwilling or unable to do the same.

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?

A Poet’s Muse

The truth is a mean mistress.

She fights you for love and hate.

She may value what you may not,

Or laugh when people cry,

She calls everyone a liar,

Why does she tell the truth?

Her philosophy is partial to virtue,

Her voice depends on my good work.

Her stunning nature reveals all to anyone with no reservation.

My mind blisters looking into her face.

Her power overwhelms the human race.

She answers all her calls

And always stands her ground,

I dare to love her ways.

I blame myself when she is misunderstood,

I can’t help acting like a knave in her presence.

She is demanding, selfish and pure! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth?wprov=sfti1

Shadow Work And The Facade Of Being Too Sentamental

I sicken myself with a barrier of sweetness and niceness.

My grief is barrier by my foolishness of sentimentality.

But am I ready to know my pain and suffering?

This work is dark and full of bad habits that numb all feeling.

Sentimentality: The dark side

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’.

The Scent Of Religion

The association is strong with people and culture.

To understand humanity is to understand and accept religion within each of our limitations.

Not all people believe the supernatural aspects of a belief, but many love the ceremony, community and art embodied in all religious ways.

It’s true that there are difficulties in accepting the whole package.

Atheists are borne out of a strong desire to live without supernatural belief.

Many people have a good sense of skepticism in their day to day lives.

There is a lot more we have in common than we are different.

Science and philosophy attempt to fill the gap.

But we all look for answers.

And platitudes are mostly empty answers or partial at best.

So, the struggle to live and thrive is still a good goal.

I hope you continue to discover meaning and purpose for your entire life.
