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.

Be a world citizen.

Do no harm and use the proper use of impressions by practicing good practices.

Forgive the world and learn not to judge, blame,shame,gossip yourself or others.

Learn to listen and learn.

Start today to treat yourself with respect by caring for yourself.

Imagine what you can do.

Canadian Government?

www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/five-key-takeaways-from-trudeaus-substantial-cabinet-shuffle/

Any government can have citizenship.

What does citizenship mean to you?

Do your best.

Think.

Do no harm.

Proper use of impressions.

Why You Shouldn’t Hang Keys With Your Ignition Key…

Have I got your attention?

Why You Should Vote In The Canadian Election!

There are lots of reasons we decide to vote. My top three are my civic duty as a Canadian citizen, my concern for the pandemic and climate change.

You will have just as many reasons.

But I like to help people think by asking provocative questions and writing in suggestive ways.

I like philosophy and believe life is worth the struggle.

Choose wisely this election because it is an important one.

But don’t take my advice or think too hard.

Kinda fun to hear about hanging car keys on the ignition. I do it all the time. I am glad I read the article above because I think it will help me change a bad habit and start using my ignition key by itself.

Good luck voting (if you do) and with the car key thing, but isn’t it more interesting to start thinking more…

Do no harm, live the ‘good life’.

Practice the ‘proper use of impressions’.

To be human is to be conscious and we need to be mindful and present to live a good life.

It is up to me to decide whether I will make good choices and make a good practice to live a good health span.

To find a confluence with philosophy, preventative medicine, mindfulness and being present to do my best each day is a mouthful.

So, read the article and find the best way to live your own life.

Voice

Who better than a witness, a victim or a human being,

Check out what people need to know and discuss about being alive and fighting for a better life.

Rights need representation and a voice.

Support the effort through education and awareness.

Think about it.

Study Epictetus

Like Socrates, Epictetus had his student write down his ideas.

Be either a philosopher (Do your philosophy, by applying good ideas to your life, you will learn to live that way.) or wing it.

Question what is within an individuals power and those things which are not.

In this sense, study, read, research, and write about living life (specifically your own).

To think about a life in this specific way will bring wisdom to apply on the day to day basis to improve or ‘cure’ the problems.

To ‘do no harm’ and apply the ‘proper use of impressions’ is to use reason to work out problems in day to day living.

“Conduct ourselves through life fulfilling all our duties as children, siblings, parents, and citizens.”

Wisdom Is Thinking About Love

Do no harm to each other, because needless pain creates needless suffering and who needs it.

Use the proper use of impressions in your life, and that will make it good.

A wise man once said, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty—that is all he know on earth, and all he need to know.”—Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats

To love love this deep means you need to think about it. Be philosophical about it-think about love, this will help you renew your purpose in life and live a good one.

Share deeply with those you love, these are the people you need to love forever.

What is the best antidote to fake news?

www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-the-antidote-to-fake-facts-real-ones/

Some good opinions are being frustrated by the popularity of Authoritarianism and fake news, hate spin, fear of the unknown and the effects of COVID stress.

I believe in two ways of coping with stress or any other problem life may throw my way.

The first is do no harm and the proper use of impressions which is something akin to living the good life.

An older, perhaps dated poem says, “…keep your virtue.” Again, not the easiest thing to do when times are good, let alone now.

And the other is more abstract, don’t act like this in public, but in private put your ‘good life’ to good use by practicing these principles primarily for your family, friends and self. Don’t do this publicly, put it to good use by working hard to do no harm and put the above principles to good use. With this kind of anonymity you are less likely to be harmed by fame or fortune.

You will be less likely to harm anyone through loosing your ‘virtue’.

But the pandemic is a special case, we all need to recover by doing what is best in our own situation and that puts public pressure on us all.

The facts are that these vaccines are our best good practice. The best science can offer. We need to have faith this is the best answer and curb unscientific, misinformation and fake news.

So, find courage to take the vaccine so we can take our best shot at putting this pandemic behind us.

Ideally, each of us has the ability to become a global citizen.

I do this through writing, travel, and working as a responsible person.

To act in a way to promote more cooperation and collaboration, but to sustain what works and find better ways to be free.

Be a part and make a move that works better today.
