The Good Routine Of Living (And Dying) Each Day

It has been a debate that the oldest profession is living, I say that living and dying are one.

It may sound morbid to many that life could be reduced to such things but what is important to you?

The good in a habit, a practice and a ritual is not the routine, but the objective of the routine.

Consider a conversation with someone who may know a thing or two about living and dying each day.

Education is key,

Please listen to the audio book and it’s author’s summary bellow.

On Living and Dying Each Day

The Good Habit Of Reading

I could develop a routine to create a good habit of reading, but why bother?

You must learn to be a happier person.

We tend to be a serious about life, books May help you understand life is good, like reading books is good.

You will become wise when you read.

Start that conversation, pick up a book you want to read today.

Does reading pop out to you right now. Spend time right now and learn to read each day.

This Is Important

Do you ever see nature pop out to you.?

Is your job your calling?

It is time to figure out, why some stuff is more or bigger, right now…

Ever see the Phenomenon, with John Travolta…. Doesn’t matter, he found nature popping out for him or his character George.

My job is my calling, I feel the need to swing by and do some oversight to one of the places I am managing. It is calling me out. I need to admit it is an important thing for me to do.

So, this stuff is important right now to George, John Travolta’s character and me going to work now.

Everyone has these bigger than life moments in the present.

It is worth acting on, but most of the time we feel too tired or too busy to bother.

The truth is that we would be happier and healthier if we would act on these hunches more often than not.

What is most important to you right now?

Do no harm, the proper use of impressions…

A Stoic Discourse

To journal about the stoic way.

To be present in my conscious awareness of being stoic.

It is the good life and doing no harm.

To state the principles and steep myself in the conversation and my voice to discover my way.

Much like the morning and evening stoic routine, it is a form or means to become conscious and discover the here and now, what is important part of my life.

To discipline myself in the art of living, is to discover my next step.

In a way, the reward is doing the step forward, committing to the choice, a better way to move now.

Letting go of the desire, or tolerating the aversion in whatever form it manifests.

A bit like Sting’s song about ‘every breath you take’. But do no harm.

What Are You Trying To Do….?

There is no substitute for good ideals like compassion, and courage and the pursuit of truth and contemplation.

The meaning of life is not a secret.

These ideals will make you more alive.

Some will want to pursue a system too abstract or too ideal.

This system is called contemplation of the self.

But these ideals can be corrupted by counterfeiting and end up harming yourself and others.

So why bother at all?

It is good , during formal education to think about and ‘try on’ ideal to live a good life.

At best you will be happy!

At worst, you will get on with your life.

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Keep Your Head Down

When someone is trying to knock it off,

Trust yourself and others, but do no harm,

Be patient, don’t lie, don’t give in to hating,

Don’t look too cool or act like a wise ass,

Dream lucid, think straight, but slow it down when you obsess, try to possess or go mental with unrest,

If you can handle fools and accept yourself when you act foolish,

If you can met with success and failure like the same god damn thing…

Risk your money, risk your life,

Keep away from other people’s things.

Push that body,

Push that soul,

Make amends to the brave and old,

Build a willpower with good habits,

Never give into the crowd,

Talk with your betters but don’t forget people you care about,

When you can handle family, friends and people,

When your life follows up on stuff that works for you,

You’ll make a fool of me and be in on the gift to humanity…

Living The Good Life

I reflect upon good and bad and properly use these impressions,

Command my will,

Some say, I have consciousness.

Understand and know, I am conscious.

Shame not consciousness or do it harm,

Here is my strength: I can get what I want and avoid what I don’t want, use the proper impulse, a careful purpose, use a studied assent.

This is my job: to practice living ‘the good life’.

Peace On Earth Is Going To End By The Next Generation…

Provocative, maybe,

  1. Threat of nuclear war (all billions of humans dead).
  2. Threat of climate change (global destruction).
  3. Threat of Korea and Middle East (start of nuclear war).

Lack of attention, to global destruction,

We are rapidly approaching global destruction,

Are we dedicated to destroying human life?

Noam Chomsky believes we are.

Is organized human life finished?

There are options, ‘obey the law’.

Stop these threats and head towards global peace.

Can the world survive?

Will China save the world?

Your generation is being asked to determine humanities survival.

America is being asked to save the world?

Here, now, by everyone, who wants to change for peace.

All advances come from grass roots movements.

That starts with student/teacher relationships.

What needs to be changed in today’s world and how do you do it?

Check out this video and decide for yourself.

Get together with other students and discuss your future.
