Eyesight Scams

Nobody enjoys, phone or email scams, the problem is the prevalence of scams in all forms of multimedia.

Health can be a target of scams for various reason.

One example of an eyesight scam is the Bates Method. It has been around for an awfully long time.

I like to find ways to improve our awareness and habits.

If you are interested, please watch the vid bellow.

The Answer Is The Good Life

“You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth.” Or so said the leader of a violent nation.

What more truth does anyone need about someone who acts on a passion to kill.

You probably believe that compassion is a sign of weakness. Don’t you? Oh, that compassionate fool will loose his life helping the poor. Who said helping the poor are for people without compassion, courage, awareness and contemplation?

How do you think good is done? Is it human nature to kill or be killed, never show kindness, let alone compassion, courage, awareness and contemplation? Through the virtues and appropriate actions, surly we are meant to help each other the way the foot helps our leg, and the leg the body and the organs the body and the brain consciousness and consciousness-everything else.

I’d like to believe that humanity is a conscious agent helping society, the earth and the universe. But some knaves and fools think money and power are the only important work to be done. Who are we anyway?

Do I need to show you more?

Do I need to write a book?

Next thing you will tell me is that every single human being should roll over or die because he is in pain.

Thought is a gift.

Use it to live a good life.

Be compassionate, courageous, aware and a thinker

A Life

An excellent book by Laura Dassow Walls

Philosophy is never cheap.

Of the classical branches of philosophy, this one being aesthetics (concerned with beauty and art),

Both the author and the philosopher/writer/walker, bring the reader toward the metaphysics while exploring the inner space of inner peace.

Open yourself to the art and beauty here and now.

“Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

-Plato, Theaetetus, 155

Over Reacting: Me Vs. You

In this dialogue, I am clarifying our common experience like loosing a cell phone. What these differences are like and how to practice the habit of doing no harm or the proper use of impressions: specifically about change, loss and things out of our control like death.

Me: Damn, I have just heard the worst news of my life. I have cancer, they give me a couple of years to live.

You: Wow, that’s too bad. I am very sorry, you don’t look too bad, perhaps they are wrong? Anyway, ignore me, you must be very upset.

Me: I am because I can’t stop the cancer. I have been told to control my exercise, nutrition and sleep. I feel like chucking the whole thing and go back to smoking, eating junk food and sleeping anyway I want…

You: Epictetus says we have very little control over our bodies, environment, even our own lives. As a philosopher, you must want to contemplate this principle and use it as a routine while you navigate through your bad news?

Me: You are right, I have to recognize my sage and Epictetus would not let me be reacting to the little things or the big challenges in my life. In fact, he would insist I stick to my ‘practice’ and ‘do no harm’.

You: So, to be a stoic is not about having a ‘stiff upper lip’?

No, far from it. It is about preparing for change and loss like my cancer or sooner rather than later demise. Recognize my ‘proper use of impressions’. And live the rest of life like my sage does, like a stoic!

Things out of my control

How Are You Downsizing?

Every good idea has a little magic reality and historical fiction to make it work.

So, what have we started and where are we going to end up?

When you know life is short (death comes soon!), you look around and things come closer.

I have clarity and do what is important in my life.

What am I over doing? Eating, smoking, alcohol, TV, Devices, One meal a day? Or eating too much?

What am I under doing? Avoiding my life, facing my fear, being present, doing harm, and the proper use of impressions?

For me, it is all about stopping bad habits, and doing good habits more often.

I am starting a new morning and evening routine that automatically guide me through them each day with a recording that I play and journal about each time I do it.

I do my best each day to be here, clean up, slay my dragon or do what I procrastinate each day.

Stopping bad habits and doing good ones.

The Spiritual Emerson

What has been suppressed in the American psyche?

How can it be awakened from its slumber?

The Essential Works by Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Spiritual Emerson

We hold parts of ourselves hostage through withholding solitude nature and being our true selves. Or so says my friend, Henry David Thoreau.

We stifle our true selves, I agree, quiet time is important: inner peace.

I wrote, A Yankee in Canada which is a meditation of sorts about our suppression.

Let’s all wake up and sing a song that brings the kind of hope without weakness.

A hope that shows strength and a willingness and ability.

Yes, courage, compassion,self awareness and contemplation.

Think about reading Emerson.

Get the idea from he that knows the truth first hand.
