East and West

Tribute to David Suzuki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Suzuki?wprov=sfti1.

There is a way to pay homage to this planet and the way we all endeavor to praise and practice good habits to preserve this good earth.

Many gain fame and fortune but lay truth to bare against the ruin we create in the wake of ‘progress’.

It is more than environmental studies and practice.

We engage each other in dialogue to gain good practice.

We want environmental control to prevent pollution, damage or disastrous destruction.

Mr. Nickolichuk, a high school teacher, a good example of prevention is better than cure.

A choice to use art as a vocation and science as a foundation will always engineer a better practice for a better world.

When we understand the world philosophy and teach our ways to the children, we will learn to practice what we preach: non-violence, world peace, safe practices for a environmentally friendly way of living on this planet.

It is just another good direction to improve present conditions: think about it.

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.

Creating Paradise

There is a source that heals all pain.

But this place doesn’t exist on earth.

Some call it heaven, nirvana, the soul, the mind…

Ideas come to mind, like the ones by Thoreau and Emerson, Plato, Socrates, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, and many more less known.

What about the good part of you?

Why live by accepting help and offering it to others?

This is not about fame, fortune or forgiveness.

We all crave some health and happiness.

It is about the willingness to improve the way things are today.

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.

The Disease Called Loneliness

“Excuse me,” a young woman raises her hand on the bus. “Does anyone know when to pull the bell to get off at the mall?”

Meanwhile two other young women turn to each other with grimacing disapproval.

The individual is building self esteem and keeps low expectations.

The paired couple are attempting to discourage this young woman’s building her self-esteem.

The pattern of any person learning to get their needs meet can be taught by parents, schools, churches and by playing in other social groups.

To even make a friend is a risk many people will not do these days.

Social media and other devices are prompting people to choose a “bad behaviour over a good one”.

People prefer their smartphone to risking self esteem to pursue low expectations from social activities that are used as venues to pursuing greater expectations and greater risking of self-esteem necessary to overcome lonely feelings.

The “great debate” has yet to become public over issues of loneliness, but we can all agree it is costly and in epidemic proportions.

Take every risk presented to you, wherever you stand on the loneliness continuum to foster your subjective wellbeing!

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…

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?
