Know Your Limit, Stay Within It

As a human being, one of the universal truths are to know yourself.

As a process, or opus, there are many chances and changes to learn and respect.

The good, bad and ugly make a beautiful song.

We fortunate ones sing throughout our lives.

Another truth is to forgive and forget.

We practice this song many hundreds of times before our end of days.

‘Truth and beauty, that is all’, we are forever being the student and teacher.

The ugly is just another side of beauty and a lie is a lie, is a lie.

There is real purpose within this house, we all live and die.

No truth is too small or insignificant…

Living,feeling,thinking,acting,believing, calm, mind and reason

INSIGHT from the DALAI LAMA:

“Children always look to their parents. Parents should be more calm. You can teach children that you face a lot of problems but must react to those problems with a calm mind and reason.”

But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel strongly about my own life. Sometimes, I think people are out to lunch. Perhaps, they are. I feel angry and compassionate, tired and depressed, and happy at the same time. I am living in the digital age, where everyone appears selfish and I am at times. But through meditation on forgiveness, loving kindness and awareness, I can cope with day to day living and remain calm and solve real problems with mind and reason.

The Digital Life

Can you get an algorithm to do that?

I want to spend ten minutes in the washroom, five at meals and one hour at work.

Why do I have to sleep?

Speed dating, why not speed friends and family, speed relationships.

Okay, maybe I am missing the point: digital things are okay, but it is up to me to control myself when I choose to use them.

Good Night, Sleep Tight, Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite

My bed sags like a mattress on loose rope,

The bed bugs bite every night, taking their pint of blood,

Yet, optimistic and curious my mind searches meaning to grow, learn and study,

I may be sore and itchy each morning, but I love who I am and what I do.

Vermeer’s Soul

Imagine being very introspective and finding a way to steel someone’s soul.

If it were a task as simple as looking in the mirror.

Why would you do it?

Why would others want you to do it?

Magicians use smoke and mirrors, why not the artist?

The temptation to showcase people places and things must be strong in this man.

Some ones whose art inspires the world.

To stay aware of Ebola Virus and people working for change

The people on the front lines deal with circumstances outside my experience and help me accept the differences.

The ever changing lives of people help me stay informed and connect with the Ebola effected community.

News is important and helps to put a face on problems out of my day to day routine.

I want to stay open minded and learn about Ebola.
