I beg your pardon…

Being alone is a treasure because I find compassion, patience and simplicity.

Yielding to a discovery process I uncover much and learn even more about my interests and pursuits.

Yet, unless society receives a return for itself, this endeavor ma appear fruitless and a waste of time, energy and resources.

Yet, it is fascinating to look at the creative mind.

The closer solitude is examined the muddier the water appears to be.

For example, not all mothers are blamed when their child does not form an attachment.

In some cases it is considered a disease like Autism.

In many instances of solitude the artiest, or creative person will seek out solitude to find authenticity.

Again, this is difficult for society, even the immediate family and friends who may find the creative person aloof or preoccupied with their work and less with their relationship to others.

But it is easy to recognize the outcomes as valuable:  creativity, authenticity, truth, science, art, philosophy, etc.

Altered Traits

Traits Vs. States, that is the question.

My health is a state.

My traits lead to good or bad health.

To acquire these traits is part of the great mystery or 10,000 things.

It really is a problem in disguise.

Some call it the Art of Living.

Others, sum it up as the way to be.

People are fools for the truth.

There are knaves that twist the truth.

Scientists are the knights of the new age.

There are problems that elude repair and recovery,

And require ongoing examination to hatch a remedy.

At present meditation is the answer.

There are many ways to contemplate consciousness.

Some summarize it as navel gazing.

Others embrace the practice of mindfulness.

The east has been sending teachers to show us and teach us.

Many of us have gone to the east to experience this truth for ourselves.

A history is written about the philosophy of meditation.

Some in the west call it the way to become happy.

Yet, science is only scratching the surface.

Philosophy is starting to use thousands of years of contemplation to uncover the truth.

There is no simple answer.

Using drugs seem to be part of the problem, even for western medicine.

Psychology will study the mind, but the problem is still eluding psychology.

Meditation begs us to slow down.

Being mindful, we become aware of the child within each of us.

We are learning the science behind relaxation, engagement, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.

Meditation is a tool to acquire the traits to live a better lifestyle.

We Are Not As Curious As We Can Be

Do no harm or be nonviolent,

Don’t be self-righteous, pedantic, moronic, an object of hate or ridicule, ease up enough (pause) to let people be calm-cool-collected-because this is being humane.

What is the secret of being human?

Our motivation is the same, because there is a finite number (thirty or so motivations).

To be loved or respected are basically the same thing.

Life is a need!

What is the human narrative?

The common human need is to connect.

Our story is built from the 30 or so human motivations:
