Moral Crosswords

What is the proper use of impressions?

Take any feeling and assess its value.

For example, I feel good about writing this poem.

Will it do me or others harm?

Not yet, at least I am unaware.

Am I doing it out of a craving or unnecessary want?

No, I need the practice, for myself and others.

Am I aware of any other necessary action?

I need to edit it.

Am I aware of any other reasons or beliefs?

Not at present, but there are plenty from my past.

Are there any other changes?

I just need to publish.

This kind of moral inventory is what is meant by learning to use the ‘proper use of impressions .’

What Is Worth The Argument?

To have faith or believing in arguments that conclude in virtue,

To question and inquire how to be noble in conduct and behaviour,

Not for the sake of behaviour, conduct, virtue, argument or faith,

But to learn not to act on needless desire, assertion, impulse, repulse or moral certitude,

And to practice doing this process in all our affairs,

As if logic itself is the product of such a process.

True sensitivity helps us respond to our reaction, impulsivity, repulsiveness and unwanted desire,

This hard work heals our souls with good decisions that lead us to the proper use of those behaviours, conductors,virtues arguments and faith.

Not the other way around…

Time is going too fast.

Look the weekend is almost over,

I guess you are going to work on Monday.

Price of food is going through the roof.

I don’t have to pay service fees.

The bank only gave me 3 cents interest on my savings account.

Christmas is here in a couple of months, I have lots of time to work out my problem if there is a postal strike.

Since she is mad at me, I won’t buy her children any presents either.

Christmas is becoming so commercial.

Judgement

Don’t make things into good and bad,

It’s not my job.

Passion gone astray,

Illusion is a mental demonstration of insanity.

Don’t act on reaction,

It’s not a very good job.

Rehearsal may make a good practice,

But bad habits are bad habits.

Don’t avoid decisions,

Some are good and some are bad.

Practice helps sort the good from the bad,

With support from family and friends life’s problems can be overcome.

Learning to live will make the experience a work of art.

The art of living is just another way of expressing the ‘good life’.
