Fasting

How do you loose weight?

Check with your doctor first,

but make sure you keep hydrated, mineralized while you fast.

Make sure you eat fruit and veggies with some meat when you do eat.

Stop fasting when you want or when it is safe.

It is hard to fast, perhaps try it with snacks or one meal each day.

Read and write about your experience.

Do no harm.

Something humans have been doing for thousands of years.

Something the body does very well.

Hype, Hysteria and Hanging Out!

Downtown has always been a catch all for those who have and do not have.

People like to yak at the bars over the sports game, politics and sex.

Not much has changed in the big city in the last 10 years.

But technology has made it instant to grab your moment of fame or being notorious.

 

But there is always someone pushing something, and it is not always drugs.

Yet, the mania about the drug epidemic is getting very serious indeed.

Hanging out has gone from riches to rags for many who have succumbed to the latest designer drugs.

And the economy has not made it easy on those who use to enjoy more ‘haves’.

 

There is very little calmness around poverty, disease, war, and calamity.

We are facing more and more upheaval around the globe.

It is getting harder to travel safe.

More people and more insecurity is playing havoc on the world population.

 

Yet, education is key.

The increase in world population begs for a better education and no one is doing anything about it.

Children in higher numbers will be begging for more if people do not try to help.

Third world countries need assistance in planning for education in the near future.

 

Who wants to help the world population?

Can’t we all help the world population?

 

More Than Male Words…

People are fighting for space, rights, and lifestyle.

Is there room for everybody?

Some people don’t fit the bill.

Others have found a new niche.

 

The 90’s have helped people experiment with newer male images.

Younger men go for a metrosexual look:  a combination of man-bag, man bun, man-cave, and other less obvious looks, attitudes and behaviors.

People are expressing their feelings and opinions about men.

There are new words, writings, places and ways to be with or against a man.

 

Men are changing with the gradual changes in human behavior.

Power is starting to even out in first world countries.

People are finding better ways to express themselves.

And if this makes a man uncomfortable, it is part of the process.

 

Who do you want men to be?

Is it harder to be a man or easier?

Will men ever grow up or are they growing up?

Is there room for a new conversation about men?

What Is Philosophy?

The consolation of the human soul or mind.
The use of proper impressions to reduce vice and increase virtue in the practitioner.
To learn the art of learning, living and loving by doing no harm.
To reduce lose of human life through these good practices in oneself and encouraging same practice in those who are a willing recipient.

What philosophy is not!
It is not an intellectual practice.
It is not a religion.
It is not a cult.
It is not a tool to do harm.

The Writer’s Way

Here is a top ten, daily schedule for most writers.

1. Write, write and write some more !  But the practice is not the goal.  Learning to find better ways to write is!
2. Reading is a kind of research for an expert or novice.  We learn how to be better at something by finding good product.  Find your love or idols and copy from them.  Steal the stuff from many rather than one.  Like it is said in the Artist’s Way, stealing from one is plagerism, but from many is more original.  We copy and build on what we like.  We actually use it in different ways. This list is similar to many but it focuses in on what I am or love.

3.  Journal:  there are many things that catch the eye, or somethings just come and this is good to discuss with others.  But the journal is like all of this plus a record and a piece of the writer’s routine.

4. Set up an environment:  writing times everyday like 6-7 every morning and 6-7 every night.  Keep a home office, use devices like an eReader, writers mobile table for hand writing anywhere, books and bookshelves and everything else.

5. Meditate. 30 minutes first thing in the morning and last thing a night.

6.  Rest, schedule coffee breaks and just goof off from time to time…

7.  Sleep a good 7 hours each night and set up a routine or ritual to encourage a healthy practice.

8:  Exercise:  have a good workout routine to aspire to and practice a good walk and keep mobile and active.

9.  Practice good habits to replace the bad with the end in mind:  eliminate the bad ones.  Don’t be a saint but learn to become healthier each day.

10. Be ambitious and keep your day job until you can afford to be a writer. Find ways to be the student and teacher and write each day.

Shake It Up

‘Speare’ of Destiny my ass,

Schoolmaster?  Is anybody’s guess.

A player was his minor task.

And his playwriting was shared by the best.

He was a good student.

Someone who could read history and be contemporary about it.

Yet, history does not remember many facts concerning this man.

Yet again, history remembers her works better than most.

He is a famous playwrite, poet and what not.

VIP of Britain’s most fascinating historical figures.

Don’t sit idle, write plays and poetry, read and remember William Shakespeare.

Solitude(silence,stillness and calmness are golden)

Being silent, still and calm is inner peace.

Being here like stillness, silence and calm is inner peace.

To look through these glasses bring peace.

Bliss and joy accompany my solitude.

 

Yet, living can go up and down.

Therefore, life can present challenges that feel deep but painful and exhausting.

And I do not live in a castle of solitude.

I live with people, problems and more.

I love and risk all.

 

Who am I to sum up life?

A traveller using the vehicle of imagination.

I believe in striving for “being whole”.

Like the trumpet player, “Feels So Good.”

 

Transpearancy helps protect the person and the players in the situation.

Solitude creates self esteem, alleviates depression, improves creativity, recharges the person, allows you to think, and improves the focus and concentration.

In this sense the person is an organic whole and solitude is the mechanism to restore its balance.

Solitude is food for ‘the soul’.
