Know Thyself: cultivating a western perspective

Ah, the ancient Greeks somehow managed to cultivate a way to use this difficult method.

To recognize awareness and stay within reality and find a healthy lifestyle.

Reality is complex and changes and reflects who and what we are and might become.

To live with moderation and good health requires help from society, friends and family.

But we need tools to help us ‘know thyself’.

Good habits like meditation, journaling, blogging, energy flow, sleeping, eating, music and exercise.

But reality can be harsh, our wisdom and experience can help us along our way.

Show a child how to learn by showing them how to mind map.

Work, Work, Work

‘The daily grind’ as apprised as this negative saying sounds, may surprise some people.

It helps express unwanted change in daily routines and feeling that are really hard to process day in and day out.

But for the most part life slides by much like streaming tends to flow..

So finding purpose and meaning requires doing some homework.

Get connected in all your affairs and see if meaning and purpose will come to a better conclusion.

Peaople and being with them in warm-hearted, friendly ways are better than judgement al ways.

Try it at work tomorrow, see if it helps or hurts.

“…worst of all when you are a slave-driver of yourself.”-Henry David Thoreau

The work/play balance is apt to be towards work-at least eight hours a day, 5 days a week, most months of the year, but for holidays, sick days and important appointments like the doctor.

Most of the time fatigue will plague most forms of play.

Sometimes it is best to find a place to begin and formulate a plan to build a better habit.

Awareness is key, ask yourself if the above title applies to you and weather you are willing to change.

A lot of needless pain can build over a lifetime, this is another reason to use a work/play balance to readjust mistakes or problems in the day to day routine.

I like playing and I am curious. I am apt to follow my curiosity and suggest you do the same.

I am interested in blogging and poetry, philosophy, photography, science, current events, news, cooking, living, and much, much more. It has kept me playing since the early two thousands on this blog alone!

I sincerely wish everyone a merry adventure, and best regards concerning their work/play balance.

My Followership

Finding the right community is all about best practices.

The editor is the god to producing an appropriate audience.

To use finding tools like best practices and being a good editor is an organic thing.

It doesn’t hurt to use good communication like followers appreciation.

My followers start and end when you say so,

I like you when I can, I am asking you to return the compliment.

Thanks for all the support.


Don’t make things into good and bad,

It’s not my job.

Passion gone astray,

Illusion is a mental demonstration of insanity.

Don’t act on reaction,

It’s not a very good job.

Rehearsal may make a good practice,

But bad habits are bad habits.

Don’t avoid decisions,

Some are good and some are bad.

Practice helps sort the good from the bad,

With support from family and friends life’s problems can be overcome.

Learning to live will make the experience a work of art.

The art of living is just another way of expressing the ‘good life’.

This Is What I like (community and Stuff)

Going out for a hike in the woods-take a hike.

It’s hard to say who is taking care of who.

There are some pretty helpful people, I just got to ask them.

Sometimes, my pride gets in the way.

Other times, I’m just ignorant-don’t know what to do.

I just happen to know, I like to fish.

It’s been a long time.

I use to go fish on the breakwater, or out in a boat.

I like fishing in the Cowichan River.

But, something is missing, I need someone to go with down by the river.

So, I guess, I need to find someone to ask for help.

I guess community means a lot to me.

My uncle and I went to this fishing derby.

I won an orange sleeping bag.

I think my uncle had a better time than me.

I went fishing with a my friend at the breakwater.

We caught a dog fish in the rain.

My friend had a much better time than me.

But I enjoyed being there with a friend, at this breakwater, even in the rain.

People getting together makes most activities enjoyable to me.

Especially, common interest, they seem to initiate the need to get together and spend time with people.

It’s funny, being with relatives, family, friends, and some acquaintances.

I like being with people.

The need to ask for help and the ability to do it.

I like learning how to do it.

There is a good community at home, abroad, and during my common interests or anywhere else I choose to be.

Grab A Meeting With Society’s Daughter

People today, meet less and text more. Women meet and argue about what look they will use to move us forward from the millennia of awkwardness and backwardness. They will claim the power they need to contribute to this move and engage all along the path to a better future.

Dante is curious to know her mind.

Beatrice leaves her girlfriends to engage the observer.

Beatrice: Hello, my eyes invite you to a conversation. Have you not to say?

Dante: You ask too much from this asp. I must delay.

B: Surely, you prattle on about my whimsy?

D: I like the look of you, what will you do?

B: First, I will say how backwards this seems to me. And I invite my girls to participate.

D: My boyfriends are ready to jump in and make some moves.

B: Good, humanity acts like a fool. Can you stave your knave and avoid me?

D: I can, but at what expense?

B: Power and envy will get us nowhere.

D: Why play with words?

B: Because that is all you can see, I want to move forward.

D: Very well, I agree.

Romance (Sentimentality too!)

The way to love each other is opening up.

She looks at the one she wants to meet.

Sometime we are too hurt to open up.

It always helps to have a friend or relative for support.

Talking things over, we uncover our true selves.

We all have feelings that need to be expressed to each other.

To see opportunity for love,

May take courage when things go wrong.

We are all open when things are working,

And people get a chance to connect.

Go get your love and support from friends and relatives.

Go find or discover your love connection.
