I Love Solitude

Although it may be easy to confuse solitude with loneliness,

It all depends on your behavior.

Human contact with the best intentions will remedy most loneliness.

Some symbols seem to resonate with western civilization more than others: a lit candle, a peace sign, because of our Jewish or Christian culture Jesus.

I personally resonate with a lit candle, peace sign and the laughing Christ.

This helps me become aware of my feelings of solitude.

When I experience the best solitude is usually after a challenging social occasion with family and friends.

I will walk away to be by myself in solitude, rather than harm myself or others.

I have practiced this habit for many years, it is great for initial difficult social connections.

Ironically, further social contact will solve my problem, sometimes with additional solitude to recharge my energy level.

As a creative person, I have always needed some solitude for my work.

“The Laughing Christ”

The reason I use symbols to express solitude is complex.

Society seems to be confused by the experience of western solitude.

Each culture has its own bias and misunderstanding regarding complex problems.

I believe we are having a difficult time with solitude and am willing to explore more deeply the need in our day to day living.

Caring to use solitude in useful ways seem to be challenging at best and downright confusing at times.

I hope to shed more light on the topic in future writings.

Today we are seeing groups of young people being used by power and political ideas as an ends to a means.

Books like the Hand Maiden’s Tale tries convincingly to warm us to its dangers.

Question authority that attempts to soft sell you a better life.

What are the motives of a right Christian conservative political democracy that manipulated others in a western society?

Why are leftists rationalists being political in the University in countries like Canada?

With the US shutting out Russia and China and other complicated issues, the world stage is becoming more reactionary.

The complexity of the world needs better leaders than the reactionary.

But fundamentally we need to whittle our hijacking religious groups from creating havoc in Western Society politics.

More separation of religion from democracy.

Better education and separation of political manipulation of students.

Better education for everyone.

“Freedom from desire leads to inner peace.” Lao Tse

A simple mistake is to act on desire without a good habit.

To go or flow in a good direction, will allow good ways to reach inner peace.

The “Tao Te Ching” expresses good ways to find inner peace.

There is some struggle or work necessary to align your ‘will’ to ways that work.

A good description of ‘inner peace’ is being calm, still and silent.

Or quiet time is a big part of finding your inner peace.

Learning to do ‘no harm’ is another good descriptive expression.

Inner peace is very much a spiritual job.

Needing this state of mind is a very human condition.

If love and wisdom go hand in hand, perhaps inner peace needs a companion, health and peace of mind?

Plugging Into My Mind

not work, not play, not connecting in any way…

The inner voice is key, but not to see or hear or sense,

Learning to let go, calm down or unplug is counter intuitive,

It’s doing a lot of nothing, to get a sense of yourself,

Learn to sit with yourself, then decide

Your best decisions will come by learning to unplug, disconnect and be with yourself,

All of you, we all need help getting there,

Perhaps you can start by sitting with yourself.

The Neurological Need For Sleep

How the body is regulated is far from a coherent form of understanding, but it is clear that we need sleep, nutrients,exercise, cleaning of all major systems and proper levels of resources to maintain the body and mind or and soul.

Without some or all of the above we breakdown through fatigue, we rust and self destruct through diseases.

Sleep restores energy levels, completes repairs and cleans and disposed of garbage in the body.

A healthy functional body does more to optimize and correct mistakes.

To go without regular sleep is a form of great harm.
