Insomnia

Everyone has had a bout of it.

Everyone knows what it is.

But it is a chronic problem in society today which is screaming for social changes.

We need clinics, education and to adopt good policies to prevent further harm.

If you want to look after yourself, read this article.

Solo

The most important trip is made from scratch.

Once here, the rest of life is still ‘important’.

To build a mind requires a brain to carry it in.

It probably is a good idea to leave it there.

A good mind will start to fail as the brain begins to do the same.

This can happen in numerous ways.

Many people loose their minds,

I felt a lose of mind in my late teens.

It has only been 4 decades, but I am starting to rebuild my brain and mind.

At this point, it is not about passion, but compassion.

It is not about intelligence but wisdom.

You can never have too much applied philosophy.

I am striving to live the good life.

The art of living is better than life itself.

Curiosity Is The Spice Of Life

To learn how to break or form a habit,

Learn how it works,

Learn how curiosity works,

Teach her how to fish and she will learn how to live.

A Day In The Life…Of A Writer

Gawd, up at 5 or so, busy on my iPad reading and studying some topics for entries on the blog:  Day Light Saving Time (DLS) (Note to self:  Just made the same mistake about spelling this title i.e.) adding an ‘s’ on Saving, but I caught it.

There are so many things to do today, and I am in bed reading and writing for 2 hours.

I love my breakfast this morning:  smoothie!

Get dressed, put in a load of laundry, put the chicken breast in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit, do all that bathroom stuff, more reading and writing, and my 30 minute meditation using the poem, “If” by Rudyard Kipling for inspiration.

Time to organize another block of time:  Microsoft Office Personal subscription (update credit card for this account), install Excel , do excel, update 40 apps on my iPhone, look up definition of innovate=introduce new method to make changes.  This will help to keep me motivated to read and write.

I have a to do list:  Walmart, garbage, stretches, watch documentary about Canadian Youth Unemployment, Snakes(eating up arm/body) (brain storm this imagery), war/poverty, foods, breathing, relaxing, impulse -control:  don’t watch T.V., Visit Mom and Sue, Shadow Work, Movie:  Man In The Iron Mask, Book:  Don Quixote by Cervantes.

I think I will reassess the list above:  they are prioritized as follows.

Garbage, Go to store(Yates street Market is the alternate-leave of Walmart till next weekend.), check in with mom and Sue, Start Reading Don Quixote:  intro “Author’s Dedication Of The First Part” is a lot of fun.

Well, iff, I am alive at the end of the day, the visit to my relatives included lunch and supper and an evening of entertainment.

Must get to bed by 8, I will be up at 4:30 AM for work tomorrow.

Another day.

 

 

Living Paycheck To Paycheck

Being poor or living in the lower class is difficult for many people.

Education is key.

Motivation to change is critical.

Innovation will lead to motivation and a healthy change.

Too many people feel like a slave to money.

There is no simple answer to this struggle in society today.

For people who are willing and able, a preventative approach may be better than a cure.

I found this video that may be of some inspiration to you: https://youtu.be/alQdO6LFbKU

Unplug The Device To…

Chaos is the new spam: too much of something you don’t need!

Learning to purge the chaos takes discipline.

A series of thought experiments will result in the upgrade.

Making it work,

Socrates knew, the only way to help humanity is to help them think.

You can lead them through example, he did nothing but try to think: practice in a large way.

It’s simple in a way, decide what you want and do it a lot.
