Life Isn’t Too Complicated, I Am

The pain of my life is hard to define.

One day it is a combination of new ideas, old information and people.

The next it is my take on working out my problems with people places and things.

In today’s fast paced environment, I am loosing my ability to change and adapt.

I’ve listened to the minimalist, the spiritual guru and the rest.

I am doing good with my factors: aging, disease and overall health.

I am working on work, exercise and good orderly direction.

I am still trying to accept whomever or whatever.

I can’t always be on top of it all.

There will always be some ups and downs.

What I know About Nonviolence

When I am angry it is difficult to be at peace.

War is necessary, but practicing nonviolence during war is the surest way to peace.

Nonviolence practice is more difficult than being violent.

The difference for me is like putting something together is harder than taking something apart.

I believe it only takes half a mind to be violent, but a whole mind to be at peace.

Nonviolence is learnt and needs to be a lifelong practice and commitment.

I am a lifelong learner and this is one of my favorite subjects.

As a man I need to practice nonviolence for biological reasons: I believe we are all hard wired for peace.

I studied many sources, but I recommend “The Art Of Happiness in a Troubled World” by His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler, MD. And “M.K. Gandhi An Autobiography Or The Story Of My Experiments With Truth”, Translated from the original Gujarati by Mahadev Desai With an Introduction by Sunil Khilnani

And I believe all people need to practice nonviolence to become a better civilization.

Feminism (People’s Rights)

There is a revolution.

People are making political, ideological and societal movements.

Why?

People are rightly concerned about voting, work, wages, equal pay, property, marriage, maternity, social integration,rape,sexual harassment,domestic violence.

Listen and learn: humanity has a lot to learn from groups of people.

“Me Too Movement ” is another group that is revolutionary.

Perhaps, the means and methods for change in society will take its toll on a few, so that the many can live together in a better way.

Change Is Challenge

Sometimes change is a pain in the ass.

Often we are kinda set up, we feel overwhelmed and our attitude sucks, we believe we are ‘over worked and under paid’.

There are moments when our awareness let’s us know we are stressed out.

When we feel depressed and stressed, change can become an insult.

So to reframe the problem, we are stressed and depressed and the insult of change just made us aware of it.

Damage control or triage may allow us a short term fix. We may manage the change.

But reality tells us to work out the rest of the problem…

So if we are just feeling depressed and stressed we can do what we always do: rest and relax, get on with the rest of our day.

We may chat it out with friends and relatives or write it out in a journal, do our exercises or work out, play with our hobbies. finish our chores and other responsibilities. Hit the shower and get a good night of sleep.

If your version is more like TV and beer we may have a bigger problem.

The idea is to find out our problem and start to work it out and try not to make it worse.

But we may have to make it worse if we are still stuck or unaware how bad a problem we really have.

No matter how far along the continuum of change you find us, remember we are all on the same path.

Some of us have not met with clinical depression or harmful stress, but wait for it.

We all have a chance to meet them along the path.

Life is the challenge and it is full of change.

Good luck with both!

Yes, I Am Willing To Forgive And Forget

Truth, no one has ever gotten to know me as good as I know myself…

Except for the loving and caring understanding of my friends and family.

The past is full of connections that bridge my present, future and the future beyond my life.

I am willing and able to forgive and forget because of my strong tie to family and friends. They are my rock to all that may be.

I still vaguely feel fears that wisp up from time to time, but my love and connection with others bring more joy to life and the life of others.

I sincerely let go of the past mistakes and embrace the ‘joy still felt’ with people who share a great narrative from our history and shared life experiences in all we say and do.

I love our epic stories!
