Gratitude and Gratefulness…a kind of blissful essence

Love to show people how much they mean to me…

I love my apartment and I love this little shelter. I found at the bottom of the stairs: it was made by a homeless man.

He took a bench from the apartment and carried it down the concrete stairs to set up in his new hide-a-way. He had other accessories: candle, flint-lighter, blanket, ashtray, cup and saucer, and other clothing and food. He managed to stay a day or two until he was kicked out…

I am grateful he had a day or two…

I am grateful for my faculties Of thought, feelings, and beliefs…

I love my action, body and mind…

I love doing no harm to others…

I am grateful for my mistakes…

I am grateful for my recovery and relapse…

I am 100% grateful, at the moment, it is the most important part of me,like a touch stone…

I know I cannot be this way all the time…

I know I will continue to succeed and fail in many ways till my end of days…

But I wouldn’t give up this moment…

For me it is a lifesaver…

Just Another Moment Of Positive Psychology…

Authentic Happiness

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_wave_positive_psychology?wprov=sfti1

Don’t dwell on the past, present or future.

Be ready to use whatever works for you.

Volunteer to change your attitude when it serves you better.

Can you learn to be happy?

There is no answer or need for an answer.

But a description will guide the way to a better you.

Happiness is about being true to yourself, so you can be true to others.

It occurs when you become aware of yourself in a playful, less critical way and in the presence of others.

Just setting your mind to become happy is a good indicator that you will attain it in a self-correcting way.

Happiness is not forced or coerced or thought into existence.

It is experienced through positive emotion and training the mind to adapt to change when being yourself and adopting ways to allow socialization with people who can be family and friends in your day to day existence.

To prevent aloneness or isolation, learn to walk away from yourself and visit others.

Even a walk to the store, a good exercise is to go out and engage with the activity and people in your local community.

Discover the people, activities, and destination within your work, family and friends.

Educate yourself in these simple ways and put them into practice to build on your present level of happiness and grow society into a better place to live through being ‘yourself’

This is a natural way we already exist.

Just ask a happy person the next time you feel happy or talk to someone who is happy.

Reading The Writing On The Wall

It says there is a limit to people, places and things.

This is important when trying to assess the use or how to treat oneself or others.

The proper use of impressions is like having a moral compass with problems we are faced with in our day to day lives.

Sometimes it is best to follow the rules or tried and true methods worked out by previous generations.

The past has paid dearly for all the answers, wealth and experience past down from our people, countries and more…

Presently, we are learning much and receiving much that is roughly described as good bad and ugly.

And the future holds more of the same.

Yet, moral discernment is a complex ability.

We need to use it in all manner of ways.

Today I fail.

Again, and again, and then, perhaps I will learn to set myself right.

In this same sense, some of us live and learn to some degree…

What we write on this wall is a true measure of our moral responsibilities.

I like to read and believe ever word on this wall of ours.

May we all contribute many more paragraphs….

Me and My Gallbladder

A gallstone wedged in the liver or stuck in a canal that runs between it and the gallbladder…

Huge pain, from a bundle of nerves, it radiates under the shoulder blade or is it in front by the solar plexus?

The hot pain is constant for hours, finally a change, a gag reflex, heaving and up comes everything in the stomach.

6 hours in the emergency to get a bed and a blood check.

The doc sends me home, in the wee hours of the morning.

Slash 15 years later, I check my progress.

Still have gallstones, according to the ultrasound and doctor.

I am keeping a healthy diet:  much more veggie.

Is my gallbladder worth enduring all the pain?

It’s not bad when I eat right.

And I suffer a little in the late night and wee hours, but I am staying on track with proper diet, exercise and lifestyle.

My gallbladder reminds me what is important.

And if I loose it someday, it will because of an infection, or a good medical reason, not because of a lack of trying.

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.

The Writing Journal

Gripped in the Talmud of a tonality, a sweeping experience of true dissonance:  my musical journey.

Homophobic erotica depicting masturbation that is flaccid, frustrating and painful may be an emotional journey of letting go of guilt through association.

Tirade of emblems that presuppose design on all things made of god.

Or passionate rants about bobulous babes of the opposite sex (same sex, or no sex).

These canon like entries into my journal (or diary) are not meant to see the light of public consumption.

The truth is personal, specific to one’s own knowledge, stylized in their voice (using 1st person on many occasions).

But a journal may be on any and all topics that thwart or endear the masses.

Yet, not all reader or writer, neither or both hast gazed upon thine navel to propagate prose in this vein or humors.

Tsk-tsk, on one’s neighbour’s folly, thyself, and all…than roam upon this inhabited planet floating in the milky way.

Go now, and write upon the hill, your classic dialogue that speaks to one, no one or many!

 

Going To The Doctor

The ritual of cleaning up the body, preparing the mind and learning about the clinic, doctor and registration process.

How often is a check up necessary?

How often is it important to see the doctor?

 

The experience of a doctor’s visit.

Using the out comes to the best advantage.

Do you need a second opinion?

Does it harm you to follow the doctor’s orders?

When to question a doctors authority.

 

Many people need to go to the doctor on the regular basis.

Some not so often.

To learn the difference.

Being a good patient.

When to complain or sue?

 

Most of us can benefit from learning how to use the doctor in a safe manner.

Education can teach us to be safe and have an easier time when we are sick and need to see a doctor right away.

Using a clinic, a family doctor, a specialist or the Emergency.

Learning our way around medical insurance and the rest of the system of information.

 

Obtaining a clean bill of health.

What if, I am sick?

How to get better and follow the doctor’s instructions.

Using the medical system is easier said than done, we can all benefit from a little support, information, understanding, patience and good will.
