Come Hither!

Who art thou?

I promise you, five years from now, on November 8, 2025.

I will be older, but so will you.

What kind of promise do you want to make.

Practice the good life, ‘cooperate and collaborate’, then maybe we can talk.

Yes, we can think tank together.

No violence, no big money, unless you come up with a good enough reason.

But, why not, why not have a closed forum, with all members who think, are compassionate, and practice non-violence.

Why not meet behind closed door and see what we can come up with.

It is not revolution, it is evolution. Growing up by any other name.

People And COVID-19

Summer is coming to a close, and in the fall many parents and students are preparing to return to school and work.

Many people are concerned about the ‘second wave’ and ‘cold and flu season’.

In BC, Adrian Dix and Bonnie Henry, are doing their best to lead the province into this transition as calmly and safely and thoughtfully as the leadership can muster.

Employers are also putting their best foot forward.

We are being reminded what important steps we must all undertake to keep safe.

Preparation for September 2020

The mind needs colour and images to keep it interested in the thinking you are trying to emulate.

By studying the techniques and ideas in Tony’s book, you can learn to use a tool that will open your mind and awaken you to learning and imagination you may not realize is part of your working brain.

Everyone needs to read Tony’s book to become more familiar with ‘HOW TO USE THE HUMAN MIND’.

The Code

Truth and beauty -that is all.The famous lines Beauty is truth, truth beauty’, that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know’ are taken from the Ode On A Grecian Urn by John Keats. It emphasizes the identity of beauty and truth.

This may sound a tad simplistic, but the point has to do with our identity.

Truth can be good or bad or somewhere in between.

Same goes for beauty.

Jung points this out with images using what he calls archetypes and the unconscious.

The criminal sees opportunity where the compassionate will eventually see the problem.

First, we need to see it in ourselves then we can see it in others.

Yet, we are guilty of deluding ourselves, but mostly ourselves,” Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive.”
– Sir Walter Scott (Marmion, 1808)

My favorite paraphrase comes from a lady on the bus, she was listening to CBC.ca and recalled a paraphrase from a show, “People are a messy business.”

I guess there really is no answer, just being human, it is fair to think the worst and hope for the best.

Oh, how curious we are,
