A Sense Of Death

Many say there is no reason to fear death.

Yet, we fear the unknown.

It may not be a choice.

It may simply be the reality.

With enough exposure, we will feel the fear.

This may simply be the internal senses within our body becoming feelings of fear and anxiety.

Listen to this 97 year old philosopher, and learn what you can about dying, because it is part of living, for all of us.

Compassionate, Kind, Silent

Be compassionate, help yourself and others when in need.

Be kind and do no harm.

Be silent and learn to watch and listen, do not judge.

Virtues grow with action, and improve with practice.

They are available for all who choose them.

Civil Disobedience Vs Civil Obedience

Is there a convenience to the struggle for freedom: rights, liberty, freedom of speech?

Many protestors violate the very rights and freedoms held by all for a ‘good cause’.

Civility has changed as much as virginity in the last decade.

People are becoming agitated by political correctness and intellectuals who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.

Virtue maybe becoming a bad word at best and an erosion of attitude and worse.

A healthy skepticism about society exists, what is worth your protest?

News about people who cyber bully

Actually, it is a discussion about the ‘bully’ in literature.

Think of popular lit, “Lord Of The Flies”, all those kids without adult supervision, trying to survive on an island. Some were bullies.

News is that there are many references to this topic in literature.

Perhaps, recommendations can be considered appropriate on such a hot button topic.

My Sleep Meditation

My intention is to sleep well each night.

To me, that is early to bed and early to rise,

I hope that makes me healthy, wealthy and wise.

Damn it, I’m not looking for perfection here, just to get some good sleep.

Kind, Compassionate Meditation

Let go of the mind.

It is time to rest and go into a lucid state within the unconscious mind.

This is nothing more than a good sleep.

There is no need to stay awake during this changing state of mind.

Being conscious is fine during the day.

But it is good to meditate about falling to sleep each morning upon rising at 4:30 AM.

And to do the same each evening before going to sleep.

It is important to be in bed at 8 PM and fall into unconscious sleep by 8:30 PM.

To do this each night and morning is the best kind of meditation.

I dedicate this meditation to my family, friends and community (especially my followers at writetothepoint1960.com).

Loving to write does not pay my bills.

I plug away year after year….

I am determined to write and do it well.

But I don’t expect a paycheque.

Yet, hear what is said in the article above.

And remember what the Dalai Lama says, “Under no circumstances should you loose hope. Hopelessness is a real cause of failure. Remember, you can overcome any problem.”
