Living The Good Life

The practice of living a good life is simply doing no harm and striving to learn to do this in all your affairs.

But a rational look at it is a good guide for some.

There are many routines to living a good life.

They all involve practicing the basic living lifestyle that promotes health and all the forms that entails.

A blog and a journal is a good habit to maintain a record and place to sort out day to day problems, solutions and even goals and objectives.

There is no need for perfection, but an aim towards it will avail itself on the regular basis.

A desire or a passion will show itself to the practitioner over time.

Philosophy is a way of being guided to live a good life.

Contemplate all the above and throw in your own life experience.

It would be a tribute to being true to the principles, actions, and beliefs and to a very rich (well balanced) lifestyle.

The Future Is The Good Life

Yes, I will do my best.

Yes I will use the premise: proper use of impressions.

And yes, I will do no harm.

Imagine, you doing the same.

And, imagine everyone else doing the same.

The Future is doing its best, using the proper use of impressions and doing no harm.

How much do you earn when you follow this method?

Is it of any worth?

Life is worth it, why not a good life?

I am grateful to practice every day.

The Simple Life

Living is doing, and doing may make sense out of the day.

What a routine: waking up to one, working through one, being with one, seeing one and so on , ad infinitum.

Philosophy is relating to common sense and doing it for the sake of itself and to produce more of it.

A bit like that snake that eats itself but being able to keep the malevolence out of the way.

Maybe that is the best way to treat it….

Life is important and the only time to live.

But death is coming and it happens every day.

Lots of books about it.

Lots of philosophy about it.

But it is important to make the experience be your own way of living each day.

Some say, each day is a blessing,

and philosophy tends to say an awful lot about life to express a simple way to live each day.

Most of us are still too full of ourselves to truly live a simple life.

Maybe that is the hook needed to persuade the majority of people to slow down a little and maybe even live a little,

Some phrase it like ‘The Joy Still Felt’, (an autobiography by Isaac Asimov) or living the simple life.

Start out this way, do it each day, do more and more and grow a simple way to live until that is all you do.

Consider this challenge to engage the moment and live simply as often as you and others are able.

You can’t go wrong.

Just do it.

The habit is good and is its own reward.

Practical Stoicism

Beware your passion or use a little common sense when you act on the following convictions.

Use a page worth on each journal entry.

The idea is to think about what you may want to practice.

Get up! Or get at it. Do it. Be here and do it now.

It is all about character and virtue or doing it right.

Epictetus, Discourses 1.2

Of one thing beware, O man: see what is the price at which you sell your will. If you do nothing else, do not sell your will cheap.

Work on your virtues or character. What do you value. What is important to you?

Assess the way you do your life. Think about your own stuff.

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.

Last Time, (I will be me!)I am here…

No more sugar,

No more alcohol,

No more bread and pasta,

Treat all the above like a good spice, very sparingly,

Enjoy the benefits of the ‘good life’; be serious about problems and maintain them to a small manageable size.

Do no harm, be ethical.

Do exercise to optimize the health of all you transmit.

Better yourself when you are willing and able.

“Resist and persist.” Says Epictetus.

Exercise all aspects of the brain: use reason, emotion, the way you believe is best. Attempt rigor and ‘seize the day’.

Rest, relax, recreate!

Meditate, journal, read, write, study and research.

Face the truth when you are willing and able.

Be a hero.

Be a thinker.

Be a compassionate one.

Be safe and kind.
