Know Your Limit, Stay Within It

As a human being, one of the universal truths are to know yourself.

As a process, or opus, there are many chances and changes to learn and respect.

The good, bad and ugly make a beautiful song.

We fortunate ones sing throughout our lives.

Another truth is to forgive and forget.

We practice this song many hundreds of times before our end of days.

‘Truth and beauty, that is all’, we are forever being the student and teacher.

The ugly is just another side of beauty and a lie is a lie, is a lie.

There is real purpose within this house, we all live and die.

No truth is too small or insignificant…

Teacher Vs. Student: The Way

In the east, there is a mystical presence felt by those in the west. In this dialogue, the teacher shows the student how to find the power in breathing for compassion, simplicity and patience.

Teacher: You must breathe in your belly to calm your body. Or into your chest to warm yourself and accept your pain.

Student: how do I find balance, when do I breathe one way or the other?

T: Just breathe and ask me again when you know the answer.

Student: Will I ever know?

Going For Flow

Happiness is flow.

The outcome is produced through hard work at whatever comes naturally to you.

Your decision is key.

Fortunately, humanity is hard wired to become recipient, participant and generator.

When it happens we spend our resources and feel grateful that we have attained some self-mastery over our inner experience.

Go for flow, your life depends upon it.

Thank you Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Universal Peace and Happiness

The Dalai Lama said, the ultimate source of peace is n the mind-which, far more than our circumstances, determines our happiness.

CBCT or Cognitively Based Compassion Training is the next big tool for teaching the trait of loving kindness.

Accordingly, the person learning to be more compassionate is the first to benefit.

So, even if you don’t love the world today,

even if you don’t love your enemy today,

You can learn to love yourself using CBCT.

Another words, you will be a source of peace and happiness in everyone’s life.

Do you want to try CBTC or learn how to be more peaceful and happy?

Johnson Street Bridge

Like most city infrastructure, there is a long bland story and a few salient facts.

It looks good and works well and the budget covers the large price tag of just over 105 Million dollars.

Father Folksinger

In Canada, Gordon Lightfoot comes to mind,

Still going strong in his eighties, the man is a living icon,

He is known and loved by many a folkie Canadian fan,

As well, by the fickle folk lovers internationally,

More than a memory, this folk hero is well imbedded in our culture,

Do you have a mindset to live a better life?

Some people retire early, others learn later in life.

But the good life is there when you are ready for it.
