Autumn 2019

The end of a month is coming near,

The day is clear and air is crisp,

The changes are all in Colour and are littered among dead leaves,

The mornings and evenings are fighting with winter,

Animals are still fighting with food for hibernation.

Another passing season readable within all the fine print.

Happy Halloween!

The Good Life

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discourses_of_Epictetus

A teacher and student may master knowledge, but life is a different matter.

Some teachers learn to be good under extreme circumstances and pass on excellent habits to their students.

To Judge or Not To Judge

The Dalai Lama says, “Love is the absence of judgement.”

The ability to exercise the awareness of how you judge or abstain from loving yourself or others is critical.

We all need to love and love others.

It is essential to doing some good rather than harm in life.

It will give far more than it takes.

Find a little patience, slowdown and tune into your behaviour.

There is a better way to live.

Try it on.

Do No Harm

You can read and put it into practice and journal about it.

You can talk to others about it.

But we really need to learn how to live.

To live is to learn, love, laugh and begin to build a life and a legacy.

With each life built this way, others need not reinvent the way.

But life has up and down and most of us get broken and need time to mend.

It is a challenge to live and do no harm.

We cause much damage to ourselves and others.

When we loose sight of our harm, we do more harm.

It is a big concern for all who strive to live a good life.

Who on this planet is up for change and will risk their life for it?

Will it be an internal or external event?

Most likely a little of both.

What will you do to revolutionize yourself and the planet?

A Modest Proposal

I swear to God, queen and country,

That I mean no harm to children, parents or my countrymen, especially not women, nor any vegetable, mineral or criminal (those unfortunates, excepting the token white collar criminal that represents the multitudes of those under criminal whose charge becomes unheard, unspoken and unwritten…),

But, maybe Canada and any and all countries in the whole world, will take the day off tomorrow.

Tomorrow being the unofficial strike day for world peace.

Perhaps our government and others may declare International Peace Day a national or Global paid day off!

If anyone reading this farce, genuinely likes the idea, I say (You too) yeah and I will send in this yarn as quick as you can say Jonathan Swift .

International Day of Peace

The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political.

The more important question is about day two.

There is a need for continuing the work to a final conclusion:365 a year.

With this actuality, progress can continue to be strived for with concrete outcomes and a direction to improve on the day to day peace, ad infinitum…

Individuals need to be engaged, repeatedly to attempt a dialogue and affirmative action for ongoing continual peace.

John Lennon said it best, “Give peace a chance.”

Day by day, an actual scale to approach for everyone, in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation.
