Something, Incredibly Organic

Inside, there is a life.

Peace, lots of emotions and thoughts, a collection of poetry.

Ah, philosophy, a way to think about wisdom and love.

Photography, a picture that represents an impression of the nature of things.

Technology, a growing concern that represents some hope for the woes of the world.

A changing picture of things going on around the world.

PROPER USE OF IMPRESSIONS

Compassionate Math

The democratic nature creates change, one vote are a time.

Remember to take what you need and leave the rest.

Follow your heart into the future that sustains earth and a global or universal citizen.

Practice non-violence, one kind act at a time.

Add your voice to the choir of love and compassion to grow a better life.

The economy of compassion is a currency to improve positive change.

Count each gentle, patient, self-controlling, good….

Add the good life and let the bad life go.

Use critical thinking to live a compassionate way of being.

What is the best antidote to fake news?

www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-the-antidote-to-fake-facts-real-ones/

Some good opinions are being frustrated by the popularity of Authoritarianism and fake news, hate spin, fear of the unknown and the effects of COVID stress.

I believe in two ways of coping with stress or any other problem life may throw my way.

The first is do no harm and the proper use of impressions which is something akin to living the good life.

An older, perhaps dated poem says, “…keep your virtue.” Again, not the easiest thing to do when times are good, let alone now.

And the other is more abstract, don’t act like this in public, but in private put your ‘good life’ to good use by practicing these principles primarily for your family, friends and self. Don’t do this publicly, put it to good use by working hard to do no harm and put the above principles to good use. With this kind of anonymity you are less likely to be harmed by fame or fortune.

You will be less likely to harm anyone through loosing your ‘virtue’.

But the pandemic is a special case, we all need to recover by doing what is best in our own situation and that puts public pressure on us all.

The facts are that these vaccines are our best good practice. The best science can offer. We need to have faith this is the best answer and curb unscientific, misinformation and fake news.

So, find courage to take the vaccine so we can take our best shot at putting this pandemic behind us.

Human Rights Day | United Nations

Ideally, each of us has the ability to become a global citizen.

I do this through writing, travel, and working as a responsible person.

To act in a way to promote more cooperation and collaboration, but to sustain what works and find better ways to be free.

Be a part and make a move that works better today.

Insight from the Dalai Lama 2020

“Basically we are all the same human beings with the same potential to be a good human being or a bad human being….The important thing is to realize the positive side and try to increase that; realize the negative side and try to reduce. That’s the way.”

It needs to be said by the people we know and trust.

We are all trying to behave well and live a balanced life and living more in the moment.

We are trying to ‘do no harm’.

Please support the effort.

Self isolation is key, which means no gathering for Christmas or Holidays like New Years.

People are dying and we are so close to a working vaccine,in fact the first British Subject was given her shot today.

Please support the effort

Triumph And Disaster (‘those two imposters’)

I quit looking for perfection.

Competing for success sucks when it costs you good people.

No amount of material gain makes up for pain and suffering or harm to myself or others.

I like keeping my small failures and small successes.

I’m not looking for a ditch to lay down in or some golden ring that makes me a winner.

To build a relationship with myself and others, is all about learning from success and failure, to correct my mistakes and make a life while adjusting to changes.

I believe in keeping my stuff small and manageable and building on a good foundation in all my affairs.

Kipling said it best “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.”

The Philosophy Of Consciousness

Awareness is consciousness.

I am awareness.

Or I am that I am like in the Old Testament.

All religion goes into this idea of being aware.

There may be more than an object reality.

If this premise is true, we can be aware of our awareness in a non duality way.

In this sense we can be aware of awareness and aware that all is awareness.

This philosophy is born out of a sense of permanence and the infinite we call consciousness.

Without a objective reality, we or I is awareness and flows within itself in ways that resembles a reality with objects and subjects, but is really agents of consciousness that is the source of all.

Awareness is here now, permanently, in a stable way like a flow.

Because of this sense of flow, all the stops and starts and fades or emerging is now our experience.

The element of our experience that is present is awareness.

We or I is awareness.

Sensation and perception disappear when I rest or sleep or when I am at peace.

The limitation of language make words like aware limited to that of a noun.

For this reason we may express awareness as a space or field.

‘Being aware’ is a better phrase to express the knowing element we call awareness.

What I have has no objective reality or nothing.

In this sense, I am nothing or everything.

We all know we are aware.

What is the ‘we’ and ‘I’ that knows awareness?

The same ‘I’ is our primary experience.

Or I am aware I am aware.

I am not objective. I don’t do anything, I am conscious.

This is not Devine or a cosmic experience.

This is simply how each of us know our experience.

This is a way of being or a way of being conscious.

These words are essentially the same: awareness, conscious, being, knowing.

The way has no objective qualities-it is self-aware.

Our true nature is everything to us. Because we need to be what we know.

Science is attempting to learn the true nature of consciousness.

The mind-body and world depends on the nature of consciousness.

We need to go to the source and ask what is it’s true nature, and that awareness of awareness is “I am that I am.”

This is a concession to the objective finding mind.

The source of attention is absent from attention,but rather a relaxation of being aware.

Am I aware?

Yes.

For thousands of years we have been asking what is consciousness.

And it is becoming a fundamental question to science.

All other science is breaking down because we have reached the conclusion we must answer this fundamental question to move forward.

The hard question of consciousness will be hard to prove, but we all have a subjective sense of it.

Perhaps it will take a thousand years to find the answer.
