Degrees Of Separation

First Degree

It’s not your fault.

Humpty Dumpty.

Is this really a good way to teach kids to understand the human condition or is this triage for saving some people in society?

Second Degree

You need to be compassionate.

People will harm you and you will harm yourself.

But remember, violence is not the answer, being human is a messy business.

Third Degree

Okay, people get sick, no one can tolerate them in life.

Is welfare or social assistance enough for anyone homeless, mentally ill, violent and harming themselves and others?

Waking Up

To sit in this room, by yourself, to workout how to live with this change is going all the way.

You may survive, but it is better if you wake up.

Some people go all the way.

If you hit the wall, few will survive.

Fewer will change and commit to teaching others like the homeless, mentally ill, and those violent and harming themselves and others…

ER, By A Famous Author

Who needs a introduction, it certainly isn’t this man.

He is so talented and famous that most people would recognize his name, even if they never read a book by him.

The history he must love to continue to write such wonderful works, that teach, inform and entertain millions of people around the world.

A tribute…

Keep Your Feelings!

Question, if you were a doctor, would you get sick at the sight of blood?

No, why you ask?

There are some questions better not asked in this world. You answered one of those questions.

What kind?

All or nothing… Think, feel, chat with people you trust.

Why?

Because you are a human being. We should all be so lucky.

Living the ‘good life’

Yes, Epictetus says to start from a place of intention or purpose.

He suggests strongly to not act on desire at all, for now.

But to act on aversion with good intentions or the proper use of impressions.

Cicero, argued that the only way to live is to practice living the way Epictetus taught his kids in school.

He wrote a synopsis of the good life for his son to follow.

A proper impression is to find moral good through building experience by practicing habits that help you act on aversions that build the good habit you happen to have aversion for in your present life.

By getting to know yourself, you will identify said aversion.

It is best to find a few to start, but only a few which will create work but a sufficient amount of outcomes to consider the exercise worth the effort.

The outcomes of say learning to make your bed, you may have a slight aversion to making your bed, is love and freedom.

We learn what real freedom and love can be by building good habits which instill a sense of how love and freedom feel from direct experience.

Adults may or may not wish to experience this kind of good life.

It precludes you don’t wish to live a bad life.

Adults tend to pick some of both.

To use journaling as another tool to enhance the process of good intensions towards living a good life will help one maintain the boundaries of privacy while exercising this difficult task.

Adults need a more complex method of viewing the intensions, a deeper knowledge of themselves and more time and energy to practice.

Anyone can benefit from a moral practice, but it requires experience and insight to develop the motivation to proceed.

There are numerous sources on the topic, a little research will produce a lot of free information from the internet.

A good exercise is to focus on how to live the good life.

Being mindful of the good life is all it really requires for a good start.

But it takes a sincere effort to build on the good life we already live.

Happiness is…

Human mistakes born before a fatal one

Starry night, Vincent considered a failure.

Humanity needed to see him as misunderstood,

It seems to me his self harm is difficult to accept like so much pain and suffering,

Perhaps, this is why society adores him with their own myths….

There is a good record of both his genius and his sickness.

A complicated man at best and gravely misunderstood at worse.

Consider the compassion and work necessary to uncover his excellent life and a truer perspective on his mistakes.

The vid above is worth a good view.

Happiness As Seen By Psychology

The study of the mind reveals that happiness can be applied to life.

Positive emotions seem to aid the brain to set for the motivation and behaviour necessary to pursue the habits that increase happiness.

An attitude of we vs I also aids positive emotions like compassion towards others and an outcome of happiness.

Education is key, please watch this vid and consider applying key elements to your lifestyle.

The Crown And The Glory

The Olympic Games, drew crowds large and wide.

All came to compete in the games for a crown made of wild Olive.

It is here, in Greece, that progenitor of cities that see the genius (a philosopher) had invented to gather people to celebrate and barter for goods from far and wide.

And till this day, the games, move us as a people, to live life to the fullest and to assemble for trade and to live the ‘good life’ that philosophers from ancient times (sophoi) called cities.

To think about love is to be wise.

Do we need to think about love…?
