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.

Too Many Bumps Or Mood Swings

I’d call any kind of emotional outburst (negative emotions) a mood swing or a bump.

With Corona, I generally get more bumps than usual.

I have made it a practice to take a mood swing or pump moment to calm down and take stalk of my state of mind.

Mental health is just as important as physical health.

Having faith in myself and others is part of my day to day well being.

When I take responsibility for an emotional or mental health problem, I am taking care of myself to do no harm.

I call it buckling in to corona. And I need help and give help to my friends, family and co-workers.

See you in the new normal!

Inspiration

Why do we need inspiration?

To stop us from giving up in the face of adversity.

Why do we need hope in the form of inspiration?

Although, we may not have faith from a religion, we may still garnish hope from a faith in the inspirational that move us in that direction.

How does this ‘hope’, move us?

It inspires us through our ability to be strong and experiences to move toward whatever will help us to continue to face this adversity until we are safe and sound and ready to live a good life.

After all, being able to live the good life requires a lot of growth and striving to get past our problems of mere survival.

We work hard at this goal to be more civil and less fearful in the face of ongoing adversity.

Most of us are still afraid to face the idea of death head on.

Most of us fail everyday.

Most of us suffer and feel alone.

It is a struggle to pick ourselves up after falling so far from being civil, compassionate and kind.

Inspiration reminds us to strive to be good people and give up violence to be more compassionate and kind towards ourselves and others.

We build a life on this foundational truth.

Inside The Mind Of A Seven Year Old Gerbil Owner

When I got my tonsils out, I blacked out in the hospital, but I got jello and ice cream.

My ear ache was really soar, but my mom brought in a warm hot water bottle and a nice towel to heat my ear and help me sleep.

My dad and I like to go fishing.

My mom likes to watch me eat my lunch.

But I miss my gerbil.

Happiness

‘Living the good life’ is understood by science, religion and philosophy, perhaps psychology.

People like Pope John Paul the 2nd, or older people like Cicero and Epictetus, William James are all people who knew the ideas necessary to live well.

It is not just survival…

So, how do you live?

Learn to do as little harm as you can, with this in mind and practice, a civil, hopeful, kind, compassionate life…

And the details require a long term commitment to human being and therefore, your own life.

Join the living…
