Oh yeah. Great pic. Hahaha. I did a sad selfie. I get exhausted. Think less and feel more. I don’t know if all people age and stop worrying as much. Maybe its age of PROCESS, not time. Well…
When I was young, I’d bicycle by the tens of miles, go for super long walks, I would think. Put me in one place in the day, it was torture. So I accidently started moving my mind.
With that, I talked a lot. Joking, mocking, facetiously was my mode. I was commanded (told):
Shut up (not nice!)
There was a juvenille insanity, mental warpage to my mode. My humor was a methadone to my madness. It was too much for my own use! I was being myself but time to expand.
The Art Of Talking Without Cessation
The formula for the above must be done, oh, very carefully after social sting, but you can hack it. If you cannot stop talking you must be in tune with your hearers- that your voice be emotionally gentle and soothing. Philosopher Fulk (my friend, not famous) says in his business dealings, “Know the comfort of your client. By all means avoid missing cues and go easy.”
He is successful. So I applied the philosophy of my voice to “do no harm to the ears”. I have a vast library of tragic stories, mayhem in history, cantankorous human behavior, yet see how I avoid pictures. I just covered all that is wrong. I know things that go to 20 on the scale from one ti ten, and friend, if you ever needed to know someone who could tell you how is starts and stops, you might want to BE that someone. Learn your fear.
Gosh, there I mention pain and fear and almost hit grief. The BBC in World War II had an Oxford mind do a show on radio to soothe the people. C.S. Lewis talked and talked and wrote and wrote. He wrote on difficult topics.
Because I want to enlist YOU (I WANT YOU) to join the forces of unarmed hands and weaponized brains as counter-intelligence to:
Unite good ideas
You must know this world is not all green, rather count every good. You will need it. Reinvent your mind, grasp who is reaching for you back- your spiritual belonging. I will tell you a secret- there is a fat knowledge wanting to burst out, maybe thru YOU and it is being suppressed by things around you, individuals who are bitter, jealous, violent, disagreeable and just plain messed up. Your own skin will feel the lie, but do NOT be dismayed! That was much of my world until age 30.
There is much adventure to be had. From where I am standing, I say a challenge to science- we aree like animals, but we who are of the consciousness of reality, light, dignity and health bear the great world torch. For AGES, regardless of technology or freedom or wealth, people have found light. It favors no generation. We are spiritual, science-lovers. The spirit loves logical science.
Remember what you love. No matter what they say, there is a hope for life and beyond religious thinking, there is great reason to believe in more than THIS life, perchance is you are quadrapeligic and have 1% the opportunity of others, you have all the hope, all the heart, all the love that you will ever need right now. “For Always” is not a dream. This world is a shadow of the future. Read it. This world is the underground to a vast metaphysical day. Think it over- you have more freedom to live with the slack of forever ahead. And there, people will be happy.
I am not a trained individual, but I befriended a woman with a dysfiguring condition. I am christian, yes, but what I stress is philosophy tailor made. She friend-requested me after I said HOW the disabled can give. Feeling useless is no fun. She was in pain. I prayed for her to get her marijuana card. In a month or less, she got it and a break for her was to be out of pain. I witnessed it and attest to the fact that working toward good ends feel GOOD.
So I have had to learn to speak not so verbose, but lend a hand- and often- and my cintemplations of dying meant less and instructed me more. In fact, I am not at all comfortable with dying, though that time will come and I will have my resolve. But to live. Carpe dium. Live for each other ALL OUT and enjoy doing good at your own level, acknowledging your maker who loves you so much. I am avoiding 16 tons of theology on purpose to say:
Be and live, breathe, endure, hope and love… and you WILL make it!!
See you at the after party.
