An Amazing, Hazy Look Into The Future


Sometimes we all sit and think. Sometimes we doodle with a pen.

Simple Words


The words, the thoughts, the processes go on and on.As simple as it may seem to me I tend to feel that all words have their own meaning and not always the dictionary form.

What Is Destiny? Is There Some Thing Called Free Will?


One of the greatest and everlasting debates of humanity has been about the role of destiny in the lives of human beings. There was a time when it was almost an accepted fact of life that each and every event was governed by destiny of human beings.

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Web


I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them. The probability of that obviously is very low but laws of probability have often been known to falter at the crucial test of reality.

DNA, Fiction and Society; How it Affects Thought


A book called the Seven Daughters of Eve by Richard Sykes is worthy of a read and talks about what we have learned about the flow of human beings populations through DNA research. Thus it is safe to say that certain members of our species have developed differently and in different ways, meaning the brain also learns differently.

Desire is the First Step


When a member of a species determines it wants something a thought is born, which triggers a desire and thus starts the brain into a cycle innovation and strategy. If it is hunger in a Bald Eagle it means flying over the river to catch a Salmon.

Culture and Knowledge


In eastern Cultures the passing of thought was considered valuable, so much in fact that even to this day members of those cultures respect their elders and listen to their advice. The passing of such thoughts and concepts and philosophies is of extreme value.

Humans Who Are Disrespected Seek Revenge


The easiest way to gain enemies is to disrespect people. Inherently for some reason; humans who are disrespected more often than not seek revenge.

Tempus Fugit and the Dollar Doesnt


Money is time, a commodity which can be used to gage worth in respect to the time needed to construct, design, build, assemble, mine or in other ways accomplish a task, the creation of a product, a skill, an idea or any materialistic value. The value of a dollar changes from moment to moment depending on who possesses it at any specific point in time.

Choice and Social Acceptance in Human Organizations


Let's discuss choice and social acceptance. I had the most interesting conversation the other day with a friend at a coffee shop.

Platos Atlantis: Fact, Fiction or Prophecy?


Atlantis is often described as paranormal or mythical, but is it really? In two of Plato's great works, the Timaeus and the Critias, Plato describes an Athenian civilization in diaglogue between Critias, Socrates, Timaeus and Hermocrates. (Predating Plato by 9,000 years, or 9,600 BC) Atlantis, according to Critias, was a great Athenian city which, by the hand of mankind, met with cataclysmic destruction.

Quotes to Think About


INSPIRATIONAL COMMENTS:"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation. - Herbert Spencer"Albert Einstein - "We are seeking for the simplest possible scheme of thought that will bind together the observed facts.

All That We Are... Are Labels


Within the confines of the known universe, a madness is present that taints all of the knowledge which every human being has aquired within their life, and within the lives of others.Nothing is as it seems, and it only seems that way because the human being has labeled it as such.

The Tree of Life and Allies


There are names in many languages and cultures or even within each culture, separate cults with different names for 'forces of nature'. Allies, guides, elementals, fairies, elves, gnomes, leprechauns and so the list would grow into the thousands.

The Cosmic Eggs


One of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World is reported (many years after all but the Great Pyramid had vanished) to be the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus. This great goddess has what many archaeologists and historians have interpreted to be nearly a thousand breasts on her body.

This Is The Spotlight
Concentrated thought is the spotlight of reality. Without that, nothing happens, even the most basic actions.

Rising Above "Normal Nature"
The ultimate productive leap of faith is rising above yourself. With that dramatic sweep of a statement, I begin this article.

More Than Riding The Wave (Working On Higher Centers Of Reality)
There is more to life than just "getting lots of stuff and having sex". With that dramatic and boldly simple statement, I begin this article. When I say there is more, I mean reality is more than just what we see in the world, however wild and crazy it may now seem around the world at this point.

The Naked Reality Of Everything In My Life (And It Is Simpler Than You Think)
Today, I got a call from the Church of Scientology on my cell phone mentioning the year before my Dad died, 1990. He died in 1991 from a heart condition related to diabetes. I remember when I went to take the personality test in 1988, I was going through a really bad time back then and nobody seemed to care, not even my Mother and Uncle that was living with us at the time. I was pretty vulnerable back then, and if I had enough money, they would have caught me in their cult trap.

Good Service: The Mark Of The Greatest Among Us
The greatest thing in life is to be of service and benefit from it. With that said, I begin this article. When we think of service, what do we all think of? Work, doing things for others to get paid, and the like? Well here is what I think of, and it is an interesting spin on it:
12/11/2018 05:41 PM
Doing Life And Living It Could Be The Same Thing
Persistence is power I like and love to say. With that dramatic beginning to this article, I tell you this: The most direct, persistent and consistent route to a goal is the best, anything that is indecisive and wandering is the worst. What I mean is that the least talented person with the most persistence is better than the most talented person without the decisiveness and persistence of desire to want to succeed.

Gumption, Strength To Deal With "It All"
Annie Rix Militz said that the only way out of a situation is to go through it. Well, looking at most situations, lives, and realities, for the most part I tend to agree with her. For the most part also, hindsight is clearer than foresight in everyday life. So, you have a clue why I paraphrased and quoted Ms. Annie Militz on this one. When I think of reality, I would love to go through everything "the easy way", but, sometimes the easy way is not possible, indeed though, sometimes it is possible to avoid the hard way. Here is the complete catch:

The Realities Of The Situations
Mao Tse Tung, or Mao Zedong, once said that "All political power comes at the point of a gun". Well, I agree with him in a sense, but I would just like to change that a bit and say this: All real power comes with guts, effort, patience, understanding and tolerance. With that statement against all "conventional morality that does not work" I start this article.

Dealing With Temporary Loss, And Ultimate Winning
You know, we all have to serve something and somebody with genuine zeal to achieve something genuine. With that said, I begin this philosophical article. We all have a job operating an elevator that goes up and down consistently, but not owning or really controlling it. That elevator that does all that is called life, and we must live it to the best of our ability, going with the ebb, flow and everything else of it all.

The Effort Of Life And Existence
In a way, there is a certain way we all must swim in our pools of life and existence. We are seeing an object reality of that in the current events of the day in politics, and if change was not in the air there would not be currents of turmoil all around subliminally. With that said, I will write the rest of this article. Sure, reality to be controlled must be obeyed, indeed right down to a person driving a car or flying in a plane.

Freedom of Expression Is a Beautiful Ability' Filtering Words Productively Produces Positive Results
***Freedom of expression is a beautiful thing, especially if articulated in a loving and giving expressive forum. Implementing your filters is always the first priority. You can gain a grander audience by cleansing and releasing the low energy vibe that may or may not have generated your opinion. By doing this little deed it can better serve you, and possibly even me, even if only as a listener. Exercise your freedom of speech productively and wisely to use words as they were meant to be used in empathy,or to invoke a positive verbal vibration and energy- exchange. NAMASTE~

Get On A Good Foot
When you step out in life and have courage, make sure the thing you step out on has a definite heart, powerful soul and driving spirit in it. Reality to be worth anything has to have a great foundation, or start out on a "good foot" so to say, or be nothing.

The Reality Of My Life, Simply Told, Without Atmospherics
I am simply blessed to be alive, well and writing is the way I genuinely look at it. Oh, the article could end there without much addition, explaining or what I like to call "overt atmospherics", but, I will tell it like it is in realistic language, but still it will be a brief article compared to what I wrote in "The Funk Brother Testament" and the "Grits and Sweat Articles".

Never Quit, Just Change Approaches In Your Life
I had a close call in more ways than one, today. Some of those close calls were good news, and some of those close calls avoided really bad news by a minute of corrective action. My point? If we slip and not permanently fall, it is always a second chance.

Seek to Sustain Positive Thought Vibrations and Invoke and Invite Matching Life Experience(S)!
***You and your energy, by your feelings,' are constantly in a state of vibration that does not sit still because energy/vibration is consistently in motion. Synergy is serious business! Synergy is ( The interaction of elements, or in this case the principles as detailed below, with all aspects combined, producing a total effect that has a far greater impact than the sum of the individual elements on their own). Think positively, act positively and be aware of where your thoughts roam in order to manifest happier outcomes and more joyous lifetime experiences.~

A Life Of Meaning And Responsibility
We must create our own meaning and take responsibility for ourselves. With that said. I begin this article: I was having an early morning discussion with my Mother about past pain and trauma in my childhood. Although it was mostly one-sided, and I was fully letting it go once in for all, I realized that if it is to be it is up to me. Especially when I seriously quote luminaries like Calvin Coolidge (on persistence) and Mark Spitz (on work ethic) almost all the time, now.

Your Move, Your Choice (It Always Is)
Keeping it simple: It always is your move and your choice to take proper action in life and existence. Sure, I could be less blunt and more "esoteric" about it, indeed, considering the reality that life hands us under existence, I cannot put it any other way.

Gender in Education: A Shift From Ideology to Action
Equal access to education for both female and male students is one of the perquisites to ensure gender neutral world. However, access to education without ideological change may hinder the progress of ensuring gender parity. School-going female students may take female participation higher but this does not necessarily ensures gender parity in society. True equality lies within gender neutral behavior and practice rather than equal participation of both genders. This article draws attention to the need of accentuating gender equality through changing gender notions, rather than emphasizing on equal participation of male and female students.

Do It Now! (Fields Of Green Onions That Need Picking)
As we have weeds to pick out of a garden, so do we have realities to act on. With that said, I begin this article.
06/07/2018 10:52 PM
Behave Yourself (The Reality Of Green Onions And Other Reflections)
Life is as good as we make it. Character is not just doing what is right when nobody is looking, it is being genuine also all the time. Sure, I could complicate those two sentences, and probably, I will spend the rest of this article doing just that. Those two sentences I started with have the benefit of being honest realities that read between the lines of everybody though.

You Have A Choice, I Have A Choice
Recently, I was reading the book "Objectivism: The Philosophy of Ayn Rand" on my Kindle App on my phone, and realized one thing. We all have a choice. The pet saying of a mentor of mine was: "You have a choice." I loved the way "The Matrix" movies portrayed the choice so simply though:

An Article That Explains Luck
You know, since this has such a universal title in a sense, I thought I would write a "little treat" for my readers. A treat that explains an often misunderstood aspect of reality that seems to happen by chance, but really happens by consciousness. I am going to explain the realities of luck and earning effort.

Immanuel Kant
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) is actually the central figure in philosophy that is modern. Early modern rationalism and empiricism were synthesized by him, establish the terms for a lot of twentieth and nineteenth century philosophy, and goes on to work out a considerable influence now in metaphysics, aesthetics, political philosophy, ethics, epistemology, as well as other areas. The essential concept of Kant's "critical philosophy" - particularly in his 3 Critiques: the Critique of Pure Reason (1781, 1787), the Critique of Practical Reason (1788), and the Critique of the power of Judgment (1790) - is actually human autonomy.

The "Yin and Yang" of Leadership and Social Justice
Yin and Yang are two seemingly opposite forces that complement the other to the point where you cannot have one without the presence of the other. The same can be said with leadership and social justice.

Mental Dancing
The Universe: It is a dance of energy, made of thought, atomic structures and star dust. I am paraphrasing Albert Einstein there. Not only that though, reality is what we make it, it does not make us. I personally believe that reality is as benevolent or malevolent as we all affirm it to be.

The Game Of Life, Your Game And Mine
As we evolve through life and time, there is a certain way we all must swim, go or travel. That is our own choice. What is not our choice is that forward movement that never does stop.

8 Things We Can Actually Learn From Machiavelli's "The Prince"
Niccolo Machiavell stunned Europe (and ultimately the world) on his advocacy on the use of ruthless tactics in acquiring and maintaining political power. He completely shunned conventional morality and the use of emotions in guiding important decisions. "The Prince" further gave flame to the phrase "the ends justifies the means", with many analysts and historians making the term "Machiavellian" synonymous with "Ruthlessness". Machiavelli is probably not the best guy to listen to, but you could actually learn a lot from the Treatise, despite its support for unethical applications and complete rejections of emotions in the practice of politics. Some of his points could be applied to our everyday life.

God Is Everywhere, And God Is Just Fine, No Matter What
If the Devil is in every negative situation and reality that temporarily slips us up, God is in every positive one, and he is doing just fine. That is the great news. Sure, I can tell you a long diatribe about how "powerful the devil is" and say that the nuke button will be pushed and stop everything, but this is not that.

Time and Eternity - Cousins, But Not Brothers
Time and eternity are related concepts, but not opposites, as many seem to believe. Even the greatest thinkers of history have had difficulty describing time. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, had a few words to say about this elusive, mysterious concept, and he affirmed God authored time for an eternal purpose.

Are You a Slave to Your Brain?
Human motivation can, in large part, be explained in terms of our obsession with the "feel-good" chemical dopamine. Some have suggested that this is a result of recent technology. Is this true? And if so, should we try to take control of our brains?

Life Is a Journal of Ripe Writing Material - Enjoy Your Journal's Journey and Expect the Unexpected
Writing is not simply about keeping a daily journal. It is a lot more! Writing is a clear way to examine or challenge yourself, your progress, and to work things out on paper. Do the penning that speaks back the words that exude the pulse of your fears, perceptions or challenges. Whether in the form of challengers harassing you or writing about miracles or dreams make your writing have more meaning for yourself and your readers alike. Life is a journal of journeys and you can't stop expecting, knowing and believing in the power of writing your way to achieving miracles and accomplishing dreams. So if you are a young writer and your journal gets read, take a pause or short reprieve, then get back to your joyful writing habit again!

How Living Overseas As an American Expat Was a Humbling and Profound Experience
Living in another country, not knowing the languages, OR even the most commonly utilized foreign languages, dialects or vernacular is really a < (less than) spectacular way to exist. WHY(?) We all like and need to connect with other people and when relatives are not around, or familiar people, places, or stomping grounds we tend to isolate ourselves and feel sad and lonely. It is MORE THAN( >) important that we try or acclimate to the new people and their languages in our new environment. Quite a humbling experience, indeed... (sad face, look of introspection and finally smiling in retrospect)!

Text Thirteen, "brahmanosya mukhamasit, bahu rajanyah kritaha, uru tadasya yadvaishyaha, padhyagam shudro ajayata." This verse explains that from Lord's face (or the mouth) came the brahmanas. From His two arms came the rajanya (the kshatriyas).

The Light: Great Vibrations
Realistically, there comes a signal time in all of our lives, where we all get enlightened or have a serious epiphany in some ways. Some people it genuinely changes for the better. Some people stay the same or get worse because of it, because it is too "unbelievable", and others become genuinely great because of it. I am going to write about those who become genuinely great or change for the better in this article on "great vibrations" and "the light".

Understanding the Power of Empathy
Did you know that empathy is not as natural for some people as you would expect it to be? Empathy is a feeling of compassion for your fellow-man, animal, or anything or anyone on this grand planet of ours. It is our job to engage others with empathy, and to show love and kindness to everyone and everything. Understanding the power of empathy opens so many doors for you and for me and for others in our periphery! Empathy is a global and noble calling that enables understanding, helpful acts of kindness or sheer comfort to an otherwise uncomfortable life, circumstance,or haunting situation. Make seeking or donating empathy more of an occasion, without expectation, show empathy to the hurt, downtrodden or even to the most undeserving of human beings. It's okay to feel and act upon empathy. Empathy is a far better skill to demonstrate than covetousness, fear, judgement or jealousy. It will bring you understanding and help resolve different viewpoints, or even give you more patience when presented with impractical situations.

2018 Is a Great Time to Change, Focus or Establish a New Paradigm
So with the new year, literally hours away, what kind of paradigm shift are you going to be inviting into your life for 2018? I have decided that my paradigm shift is going to be researching more accurate information regarding everything in my periphery AND to do a lot more questioning and challenging, versus accepting everything I read or hear as complete truth. And even going beyond the boundaries of my city, county and state in search of enlightening paradigm shifts.

Give Me Time To Realize My Crime
Honesty, and when you are "too honest" when you do something wrong, it seems like the biggest crime of all, does it not? But, let us look at this issue from a different direction: The direction Galileo had when he said that the world was round and got scared by the Church to take his statements back or else, or Christ when he said we are all children of God, and not just the Priests and Scribes, or Bruno getting burned at the stake because he was honest.

Life Is More Than About Procreating, Creating Order, or About Having a Means to Earn a Living
***Life is about living and doing what innately comes naturally and unchallenged by your emotions and mind, but also to satisfy more than your need to survive. To live a life of bliss, you must first get excited about how you earn a living and be madly in love with your mate, create a family, on your own terms, and most importantly about the continuous pursuit of happiness throughout the process..Learning or revolving situations that we keep on inviting into our energy field is a great way to catch and release. Like a metaphorical fishing expedition, once you have focused on so many fish, it is then time to catch, okay-done! What's next? Release them back into their natural habitat. Just as plain and simple as that. Once you have learned your life lesson(s), and you have caught what you needed to learn, it is then, when you need to release the drama and move onto the next phase of what your life adventure can offer you.~
