Romantic Freedom

Socrates did it best.

He took the test: the proper use of impressions.

Or so says, “Xenophon’s Recollections of Socrates”.

She says,”The Memorable Thoughts…” or things of Socrates by Xenophon.

He gave his guidance through oracles and divinations.

He knew himself to abstain from all vices and practice all virtues.

He loved wisdom and showed himself to those through his questions and tolerances for all those who may take offence to his reason and his actions.

He suffered those others to be a citizen of the world.

He did not take fame, fortune, or foul play.

Practice and routine and ritual made great habits of virtue for the man Socrates.

He died as he did live: wisely.

He took responsibility to be free.

He worked his entire life as a philosopher and he became free.

Hiking

Connect to the outdoors, nature, the organic side, a balance between technology and human nature.

What is natural or wild about visiting the planet?

Touching the space we were born to live and do our day to day living in as a species on Terra Fermi, the ground in my case.

That’s not to say air and sea are out of the question.

In my case, a park, in winter, the cold is a touch of wild.

Seeing geese and other wild creatures, a homo sapient, out for a brisk jog with his dog. Perhaps not that wild on the surface.

Dig deeper, struggle hard to see when you are gathering food from the ground in the cold hard winter….

Being able to go beyond mere survival is a gift, as is Mother Nature, I don’t want to loose either one….

The Spirit Of Nature

The coarseness of an instrument may produce music when played by a human being.

Like a human being, a bird can use its faculty to sing a song.

Or a body of a big healthy tree can sway ominously in strong winds and project beauty and truth.

Is nature speaking through human beings?

What is the faculty in nature telling us in the wild?

The wild forest is but a small part of the land, sea, and sky.

Nature is throughout the planet, solar system and galaxy.

Nature is time and space with all the life, matter and energy.

Nature is fully functional in micro space and time with all the viruses, bacteria and more.

Don’t confuse science with nature, life is nature.

Don’t confuse intelligence with nature….

The Unified Field Theory Of Philosophy

The joy of thinking about love is wisdom.

Doing no harm=the proper use of impressions =wisdom

The philosophy of life=Living the good life=good(habit +practice+ritual)=good(routine)

Although math and literature is similar, philosophy is similar to the joy of thinking about all these topics.

The Ring Of Power

A birthday present, my precious…

The Tao is the meeting place that allows you to meditate on the future in solitude.

It has been decades, about 50 years of living in the world with this ritual that has enabled meaning and purpose to come into being.

The shadow has shown itself to be fears about dying and being imprisoned by these same fears for years after years.

But in the west there is another meeting place called the metropolis or city to meet and lecture about the present in all its manifestations or reality that is experienced through consciousness.

The Ring Of Power

speak to me, socrates

Did you murder me, friend or foe?

There was a little drink of hemlock in it for me, but you suffered far worse things.

Excellent, one day I lived so well.

Why was my passion so deep for the youth?

I saw in them a potential to live a life deep in the here and now,

a chance to find a voice,

to live a good life, with fear set aside when it matters the most, and excellence in what they say and do,

don’t mock my words, read about them…

Poet, singer&songwriter, and performer…

Lenard Cohen is a Canadian poet of distinction but is best known as a singer songwriter of “Hallelujah”.

I see him as a philosopher flawed but preserved with his hard work.

He liked living in the world.

He paid his dues.

I will remember him for his work and all those things he seemed to make his own.

Humanity’s Right To Be Fair

To be fair is not an entitlement.

But it is a right.

Music, math,myth, mate,

Music to warm the soul.

Math to model a better future.

Myth to demonstrate the truth.

Mate to make love, prosper and engage the world.
