Best We Can Do?

The Best We Can Do?

Are we doing the best we can?

Has anyone... ever?

If you know me, and some of you do, you may have heard me go off on this topic before.  But it keeps coming up, and is worth exploring.

Let me elucidate.

“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Problems that remain persistently insoluble should always be suspected as questions asked in the wrong way.” 
― Alan Wilson Watts


What does it mean to be healthy?

Gratitude is not a feeling reserved for certain times of year... or when someone gives you what you want.

Gratitude is a constant recognition that you should have at ALL times.  Every single aspect of our lives is a gift.

Change in Velocity divided by Duration (Change in Time)

Acceleration noun
1  an increase in how fast something happens
2  the rate at which a vehicle increases speed
3  the rate at which the velocity (= speed in a particular direction) of an object changes

I am certainly not alone in noticing that this year has been mind-blowing. If you, reading this, have not experienced this frenetic sense of change coupled with a consistent, unrelenting pressure from both inner and external alchemical processes... pressure which has driven a good number of people to the brink of losing their minds, and resulted in a reality that seems absurd to the point of ridiculousness most of the time (when you're not too overwhelmed with the process to pay attention), I don't know if we live on the same planet.  :-)

It is not just that things are moving quickly.  Things have been moving quickly.  Things are accelerating.

March To Sanity

This post was written in March, and should have been "published" at that time. Naturally, it was far more timely back during March Madness, and while the current events mentioned were... well, current.  People are still crazy though, and this is worth reading  😎  :

March To Sanity

Times have gotten rather strange of late.
The level of absurdity has reached dream levels.

Autumn & Wasting Time

Third (& final) Installment of my Autumn & Time postings...

The final weeks of Autumn are falling away.

We made it through the "super" Super Moon, the interminable elections, and a dozen other inexplicable and seemingly endless things.

The days are getting really short, and time seems more fleeting and precious than ever.  With so few hours of sunlight, we tend to become aware of the ease with which Time is WASTED.

Somehow, there never seems to be enough time.

Autumn, Time & Semantics

A Continuation Of The Thoughts From The Last Post...

Why it is that the fall is more conducive to pondering... and specifically to thoughts of time and its passing? 

Augustus Caesar
Obviously, the fall foliage is nature's most striking reminder of time, seasons, cycles and the passing of yet another year.

But there is another reason for me.

One that affects all of us in the Western World... and most anyone who deals with us this time of year.

And, that is: the rather glaring psychic disconnect in our Calendar that starts in September and goes through until Winter starts. If the Autumn has always seemed surreal to you, at least a part of that might be because for these 4 month, we lie to ourselves every day, all day... and live in the shadow of an epic ancient ego trip.

?? ‽ ‼ 

(Don't worry, I will explain.)

Autumn, Time & Space

Well folks, as of this morning we are officially in the Fall up here in the Northern Hemisphere. And, welcome to Spring my "below the Equator" hommies!

I will be talking about Time & Space this post, and you are free to skip below to the meat if you want to know how many stars are in the sky, or how much space there is... and aren't interested in my pleasantries.

So much has been going on of late, that it seems like a lot more time has passed than I would've thought... or is evidenced by my sometimes-seemingly untrustworthy calendar. ;-)

This is a good thing, as I prefer time to move slowly, and be packed with progress... rather than speed along, and then wonder what even happened. Naturally, this is a matter of perception for the most part. 

We can choose how engaged to be in Life.
