Is ‘Good’ It’s Own Reward?

History will tell the story.

But before that comes personal experience.

I have seen some good in my time.

For instance, learning to do good.

There is a tipping point where enough personal experience will show perspective.

There are a lot of feelings, thoughts, actions and belief that need to occur to build up enough experience to glimpse the truth.

I am not trying to convince anyone of the truth.

To be honest, most of us need to learn enough to find the way.

But I have discovered a good feeling, leads to a good thought which leads to a good action that produces a good belief. And that will help build a vision for my future.

Now, I can’t get there myself.

I have learnt that I need to cooperate with others in a good way to overcome the mistakes that others will do with me. I am not blaming others.

There is a lot of people that are still busy learning from their mistakes. Just like me.

To visualize where I want to head in my future, I have been targeting specific beliefs in my life. This is not a recipe for truth. What is good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander. Or it may not work for you.

There is an axiom in my life: the hole in my heart THAT needs to be healed by doing good for myself and others.

There is another axiom that might be useful, it is for me, consciousness is like an onion, its development is in layers.

I believe I am developing a consciousness my entire life. As I progress, I am able to live a better and better life. My life will never be perfect, but with the appropriate ‘good’ in my life, I can learn to build a improved version of the life I am building at the moment.

I believe that seeing the good in myself and others allow me to control myself in better and better ways.

But another way, I learn from my mistakes because I admit my mistakes and cooperate with others that are willing to help me change for the better.

I have learnt I need to find ‘good’ to heal my heart when it becomes harmed by myself or others.

Philosophy has shown me to examine the reality in my life to overcome my own desire.

But that is another story.

At first this meant to abstain from acting on desire until I can overcome my craving or lack of self control.

Eventually, the same belief grew into I no longer crave this same desire, or I have no desire for this particular thought, action and belief and experience it for its good.

I am saying that I believe it is possible for me to learn to overcome unhealthy desires and change enough to live with healthier choices.

It is like the pain I felt in my heart has healed and I still recognize the folly that use to attract me to do bad for myself and others, but now I feel the good in the exact situation but only choose good.

My personal belief is that we all grow our own conscious based on our choices.

Therefore, good is its own reward.

Sex Is My Baby Finger

Taking the sex out of sex is hard to do,

whether talking to a ten year old or feeling friendly to people you care about.

The fun thing about paternal love or love of children, is the desire to do no harm.

It is a challenge to talk about sexuality on a good day.

But kids need to learn it is okay to be who they are.

People need to feel the same way.

How many awkward moments does it take to screw in a lite bulb?

Bottom line, sex is not the issue, people are.

Let’s always show that we care about people rather than the awkward, sometimes embarrassing moments that erupt out of sexuality experiences.

Money Mystery

The advent of where money comes from with the suggestion to update the central banking system to digital bank accounts may seems unimportant to most people.

Yet there seems to be some mystery surrounding money.

To have money seems like a no brainer.

To use money seems like a must.

And the problems with money seem never ending.

Perhaps it is just the combination of attributes we all attribute to money and its meaning in day to day life.

Well, for those who are game or up for a challenge, I recommend watching the video and thinking more about our understanding and need for money.

 

Bonnie and Clyde

These celebrities want you to notice them.

Can you remember who they are?

Rogue genius, and beauty liberating us from eternal sin, they just wanted what they wanted and to hell with you and me.

A mean time to live, especially if you liked to kill and get your own way.

Some old rangers like Jim, FBI and others want you to know they will get your man and woman.

Bad behaviour is in love with bad behaviour, or each other, they seemed to agree to disagree, even when it came to loosing touch with each other.

“Toothpick there knows it.”  the people say all sorts of things about others who claim to help, even the ones who killed them two antiheroes.

Shooting guns at each other to kill to have their own way!

The killers are tired of killing, that is why Bonnie and Clyde lasted as long as they did.

We learn and we change our ways.

Good night, Bonnie and Clyde.

Classic Good Works

Becoming a cognitive warrior is a way to face magical thinking and designing a new self-image.

In the 80’s, bibliotherapy became a new way to practice ‘good work’.

Prior to that, thousands of years earlier, hard won battles with the mind won favor.

Today, we know we are what we think, believe and act upon.

So, to learn what we can control about ourselves is a ‘good work’ or skill that we can practice to live a more contented life.

To meet with minds that know how to teach this tool, check out David D. Burns and the old philosopher, Epictetus.

Of course the simplest and best way to meet these two are through bibliotherapy, or what most people call book learning or putting things into practice that you read and believe in the book.

Good luck.

Affection and womanly (sister and mother) charm,

It’s my birthday, isn’t that for kids?

Don’t we all celebrate children as a way to help them be a healthy human being?

Okay, I won’t be a ‘smug martyr’ like Romesh Ranganathan.

But I do enjoy being low key.

But , be you, do you, vision and voice, you!

It’s a time to express the affection you have for yourself while allowing others to do the same.

In my case, mom and sis.

But there is more.  Really?

I’m loving to go to a movie and doing some reading and writing, and research, and journaling and philosophy, photography, talking, good habits (sleep, eat, exercise) and that is being responsible for expressing me!

But what’s it like on the inside?

Good, bad, ugly-it is a human mess.

And its also nice to see a little of that to spice up your day.

Maybe, in my case, I’ll do a little intrapersonal psychology throughout the year to express some of my mess.

In any case, be yourself, don’t let others push too hard, express yourself and let others express themselves too.  Happy living!

Meditation

You can not be told wisdom,

Loosing self-control is an experience.

You can not see this pattern,

Stand at the seat of consciousness.

You can not be told to write your epic,

Write out your story with your inner life in mind.

You can not be told to meditate.

This is how you ‘stand at the seat of consciousness’.

You can not be told to find your bliss.

You will experience it!

You can not be told where to start.

Why not learn to meditate each day for 30 minutes for the rest of your life.

Perception Of Hell On Earth

The infinite varieties of hell are subject to the individual, groups and society at large.

But there is no place like home.

We all, carry a shadow which take a life time to befriend.

We dance around our hell by acting it out in real time and place with all those people and everything that is found on hell on earth.

For many, hell is just a metaphor for our bad self.

And for many more it is a reality found in their day to day affairs.

Most of us attempt to maintain our mental health but find hell on earth when we lapse as a consequence.

This is why it is important to make ‘the good life’ a priority and to befriend our hellish aspect of ourselves.

There is an abundance of creativity we use to create hell on earth and we can use this creativity to find peace and the ‘good life’.

The challenge is to embrace our Jungian shadow and make him our best friend.
