What I Say, As A Confirmed Bachelor

She decides whether to follow my every move.

What I do, when she changes her mind and wants to lead, is to follow her every move.

She watches my every move.  Or she feels confident that she has the right to do so whenever she believes it is the right move.

What I do, is learn to listen and watch her watch my every move.  I like her to think that I need her support and care.  But I love her because of her compassion for others, as she is learning to know my compassion for her and others.

But it was not always so, she thought me overconfident, lacking in commitment, and sorry judge of character.

Her and I are good friends, but she wanted children and a higher standard of living.

I respect the way society teaches us these traits.

But for me, I value the good life and to accept the present when all my efforts fail to change it.  Some call it acceptance, I call it being willing to accept the situation when my ability is blocked by a bigger problem or perhaps a more important trait.

I value inner peace, compassion and mindfulness.

She values the best she can have for her family and children.  She considers her husband to be an equal partner.

I have outlived my time for her dream, but I am still making my dream true everyday.

She values my friendship like I value her family and children.  And I am grateful she has such a loving and committed husband. 

Today I dream that everyone can find inner peace, compassion and mindfulness.

Although, I do not find this for myself everyday, I am given support by others who have found it and are willing to share.

And my aim and intension is to share with all who are willing and able to do the same.  And I am learning to share with those who are unwilling or unable to do the same.

The Power Of Virtue

The proper use of impressions cause no harm.

The main trait of a virtue is to practice doing good for yourself and others.

It is biological, everyone learns to do good.

To decide on right action is practical when the following rules are applied: it is better to start by deciding not to act on any desires but only aversions.

Also apply the additional caveat: make the aversion small enough to guarantee success and as confidence and boldness evolves increase the size of the aversion in good measure.

Lastly, practice using the proper use of impressions in private as much as possible to maintain a peaceful atmosphere and optimal performance of said practice.

The best outcome is to practice daily for life whether you feel like it or not.
