Lightening Is Electricity

Know your story, he was able to make many connections across disciplines: but he devoted himself to writing the story.

He had a passion for reading, writing, thinking, dreaming and creating things or making things up to write a good story.

What a curious thing, why would light carry all the energy from one cell to the other, it is transmitting electrical current from one cloud to another and dissipating electrical energy as heat. Surely, electrical energy is in its highest state when appearing as lightening & thunder.

Who am I to beg questions about such things? How does the weather turn cold? Is cold a lower state of energy?

He made an exam out of life. He welcomed an opportunity to live and examine his own with the self styled Socratic approach of philosophy. He studied his mind to uncover the proper use of impressions.

This lightening and electricity run through the mind like it does in the clouds, from cell to cell…

Anxiety Of Being (the simple feeling)

Behavior is important when working through very complex parts of being human.

I am describing being able to express feelings, actions, thoughts, beliefs, and who we are on the regular basis.

A big part of being me is about knowing who I am.

There is a lot of awareness or noticing who I am to be the best I can be in the moment.

I’m not a sadist, vain, egotist, arrogant, belligerent or a bully.

But I get depressed, sad, sentimental, scared, afraid, tired, lonely, hungry (cravings, lustful, jealous, obsessive, and ashamed from time to time).

But, don’t we all.

I get happy, calm, bored, aloof, lazy, driven, motivated, anxious, lively, alert, clear, excited, sober, and abrupt.

I feel, think, accept, act, believe and maintain a decent state of awareness.

I struggle to be responsible in a balanced sort of way.

Therefore, I believe there is a great deal of anxiety generated from simple day to day struggles to maintain a healthy level of self -control.

So, I take every opportunity I can to deconstruct my state of anxiety to determine the best course in the moment.

I usually, journal, talk to myself, and think about the day.

I practice good habits each day.

A good one for my anxiety is to act on my best behavior whenever I am tired, lonely, hungry or angry.

I can usually control my feelings better by practicing good habits when my energy is high, moderate or low.

I tend to take things on when my energy is high or moderate but minimize my action when my energy is low.

I believe all my life is important in shaping me into a good life.

I believe in doing a good job with my ‘bad-self’.

I will always take care of myself, so I can live well and engage myself and others in a healthy way.

I guess I have been blessed with good people and support and a willingness to be a healthy person.

So, why all the hubbub about being ‘anxious’?

I want to embrace my anxiety and use this feeling to express self-control and doing no harm to myself and others.

I am learning to act in a responsible, loving way in all my affairs: living well is it’s own reward!

Best of luck to all those trying to do the same in their lives.

Nourishment From Nutrients

I’m asking you to give me “B” vitamins from Whole Foods.

Be gentle with legumes.

Be generous with water.

My mouth is the gateway for good bacteria.

Keep it shut when the bad try to enter.

Sometimes you must learn to be the student and the teacher.

The sleep and exercise are a must to keep the body and mind away from trouble.

Keep me well clothed for the season at hand.

Give me exercise for my mind.

Let me express my feelings, thoughts actions and beliefs in the proper use of the impression.

In return, I give you my full measure.

We will travel back across the universe, one day.

The Creative State

Joy

The creativity or stream=of=consciousness is a state of being that is expressed through a practice of well being.

My practice may be while I do something or very little.

Meditation or mindfulness can have a flow of consciousness.

We can practice breathing as a meditation, but it is when we experience the stream of our consciousness that we can experience our best meditation.

To let go is the same thing as going for flow or being in the zone.

We feel whole or one, a unity of ourselves with whatever we are practicing or doing.

When the workday just disappears or time flies, this is the x-factor.

Of course, we need to work at it with the intension of being in the Tao, we are just opening up to whatever is there.

We can stop the flow whenever we want to stop being present or do something else.

But there is no reason to stop.

 

Our life is a creative state.

We use too much punctuation in our life.

Reading The Mind For Memory

The word convey all sense of the mind. To forgive is to forget and but we must retell and tell (again and again) to remember.

'All is said and done', but what is said is not necessarily done. More merrily, some say, 'do what I say, not what I do.'

A picture may capture part of a memory, but it is in the telling that conveys the whole story. The epic journey is full of life lessons like every life shows many lessons.

Part of recent memory is still well remembered through story: the Bible, the Epic Iliad, and The Epic Odyssey. But word of mouth is not so well recorded that we remember what is said or what is being said.

Here lies the student's duty: to recall the past in both what was said about the senses. And to listen to the present to hear what is not written but needs to be remembered for the future. And still, we need to learn how to practice 'word of mouth'.

Our Mind is like a riddle, what we remember is well and good. But what is not remembered may yet be restored after, a proper examination of the 'proper use of impression'. We who understand how to use the mind will never forget. Let us all be students and teachers on 'how to use the mind'.
