James Joyce wrote a book called Ulysses.

To use this epic poem to symbolize modernist views is a good idea.

We are long overdue for a important epic.

Perhaps an epic author will do.

“I am Groot.”

Just in case you are off planet, Guardians Of The Galaxy 1&2, has a character who has become An internet sensation.

Every time I say, “I am Groot.” I get a smile on my face.

I am in a good state of mind.

It is easy to do no harm when one is in a good state of mind.

But the exercise is to calm any state of mind and thereby do no harm.

This is the foundation for finding the good life.

With this one tool an individual can practice meaning, grow in a meaningful way and actualize a useful life work.

Join a revolution of one: practice owning your state of mind and learn to do no harm. Strive for peace and good will, practice nonviolence.

Being Good

Let go your desire to know!

But keep practicing the good life.

Salvation?

Have I stumbled into a path of knowledge?

Or am I content having this philosophical struggle with being?

It sounds as if my unification is with God, but no I am confident my struggle is with the unification of mind and body.

Why is it so important?

There is no need to question the consequences of a struggle with mind and body, only good can come of it.

The Proper Use Of Impression

Good habits become manageable through learning to understand and follow a good life.

Like the power of meditation, the fruits come with the labor of love.

For each individual the experience is uniquely tailored to his/her experience of this understanding.

With moral progression the mind and body experience a kind of unification.

This is not religious but more of an awakening experience.

Although there is no spiritual component, there are elements of relationship to nature, oneself and other people.

In no sense is this spiritual or religious or pantheistic.

The work is it’s own reward: living, laughing, learning to be.

Perhaps, beauty and truth emerge like a personal philosophical experience.

“The 3-Apple-A-Day Plan”

I love apples.

And I like the idea of setting a simple goal: eat one apple before each meal, each day and buy enough apples (21) to execute this simple goal.

I have been eating very healthy for years, but I highly suggest trying this simple goal along with the diet suggested in this book.

I plan to report back when a week, a month and a year has past.

Wish me luck.
