There is a new variant that has leveraged our fears about getting everyone vaccinated ASAP.

But is it worth the risk?

Most of us have been convinced it is worth the risk.

“Freedom” seems like it is not a public safety concern at the moment.

Everyone is doing there best to make good decisions and choices at this time.

Please support both freedoms and be calm, kind and safe.

Keeping informed needs to be personal choice and decision.

The Art and Science Of Being Present

We are often taught to pay attention or focus or concentrate.

But awareness is more than simple mindfulness.

Some teachers believe it is a state or source of awareness.

There are many ways to practice awareness.

Being attentive is like being mindful.

Being meditative or allowing ‘to be here and now’ as one does a meditation to practice being aware.

Another words, the proof is in the pudding, it is healing to practice awareness through mindfulness and meditation.

And education is key.

Please support the effort, read and write more about awareness.

The Breath

A comfortable meditation posture is somewhere you can sit on the floor, sit on a chair or lie down.

If you are sitting on a chair, let your feet be flat on the ground.

In whatever posture you are in, find steadiness and comfort.

Allow your spine to be straight, shoulders back, relaxed and down.

Slightly tuck your chin downward.

The tip of your tongue touching the roof of your mouth.

And eyes gently closed or half open and with a downward gaze.

Your body is strong, firm, and sitting in a secure posture.

Breath deep, naturally, and fully.

Mind is clear and open.

Find silence, stillness and awareness.

To repeat this for 10 minutes each day for a month is to build a practice.

There is very little effort to build a good life long habit.

Call it what you want or call it nothing at all.

Breath in and pay attention to your breath.

Breath out and let go and relax.

Each day you will heal and get better or stay more healthy.

Remember you may give this gift to yourself and others.

Cultural Exchange

Ideally, there will be no war or violence of anykind.

Can a world produce culture from the baby through childhood to adulthood without any kind of violent outbreak from a neighboring country or world superpower and back again?

The culture of violence gets all the rock and roll, but the wisdom or thinking about love exists on all continents and you would never believe it.

We sacrifice love for violence in all our affairs and in our naïve way.

We think we somehow will imagine world peace along the road to destruction.

So, if this is the prevailing thought about the world, perhaps there is more to reality than meets the eye.

It seems as though nobody speaks for humanity.

Too much to say and no way to begin.

Humor may disarm a few billion in a win-the-lottery kind of way.

I understand that I am a bug and will be squashed for the bug I am.

How much does love mean to you? Can you believe in these words: love and peace.

She is pretty. She did it. Equanimity?

Big equation=E=mc2.

Graphic novels animate simple ideas to people who may be considered somewhat unstable but they get the message and bring love and peace to the world.

Why can’t I? or anyone who is willing and able.

People who live for peace and love work hard at it everyday. To be good at it you need to practice, and we are from a very long evolution that has brought us this far.

We will kill for a very long time.

We will live for a very long time.

Some say thanks to the powers that be, that we only live a short life.

Yet another state of emergency…

Local rain storm has caused flood damage which has affected everyone from incidental problem to severe emergencies.

My first concern came when my boss asked me to fill up with gas.

The link above is about the state of emergency in British Columbia after a bad rain storm.

What is a state of emergency?

The link above gives basic information about a state of emergency.

More and more we are being asked to understand events that have immediate impact on our state of mind.

This article attempts to clarify and inform this kind of situation.

For me, it is a challenge to maintain the basic needs like supplies (gas and groceries). Yet, provincial and federal authorities continue to do a good job at the management of COVID-19, opiate pandemic, and the recent rain storm here in British Columbia.

Following all the rules are taxing but worth doing for my own health and safety, not to mention the good it does for us all.

There may be short term effects to the build in states of emergency here in B.C. But things are improving each day.

I got my gas and groceries with little or no difficulty this morning.

Veggies Vs. Meats

Is it reasonable to stay like we are and do what we do?

Don’t answer that, but perhaps it is time to look at what we are doing with food.

There is a great debate which involves many big problems on planet earth: climate change, to eat or not eat meat (our health and welfare may depend on it), and changes are being spurred on by new concerns and interest due to Covid-19.

The exact place to start in this quagmire of change may be to start reading about the great debate.

Please support the effort and read the link below about meat and veggies.

Taking a more serious look at nutrition

Some think that the problem begins with a lack of nutrition.

Some want to see more nutrition taken seriously by society and individuals.

There is hope that we can get started by listening from elders that have spent time in this field.

Check out the vid below and think if you need to take nutrition to heart and mind and everyway which will make life better.

Taking Nutrition seriously

Trying to improve my diet…

It helps to hear a good story.

Listening helps me focus on the truth.

Living the good life can be as simple as practicing how to use the proper use of impressions.

Listening and learning is how I practice being a life long learner.

If you want to practice try watching the above vid on nutrition.

Weak! Weak! Weak!!

The solar flare hit earth in a weaker way than expected this weekend.

No news is good news.
