Observation is what we do

December 30, 2015

Observation is what humans do, so why are we so judgementl about it? People need to output their take on the world to see where they fit in or just to add their two cents, why do we spend so much time on criticism ? Is one persons input better than another’s? Sometimes but instead of holding others and ourselves back by telling all about the wrong and wasting lots of time, ask yourself “how is this helping me”? Or if your feeling generous ask how is this helping _______ because when it comes down to the truth we are individuals living in a society not a collective and the individual is selfish, which is a good thing because if we spent half the time on others that is expected then we would be unhappy. Humans have always wanted to be happy and be together so why can’t we seem to find a way to do this?

prudence

May 8, 2015

We should all have something to hide

We don’t often repeat the cliche that if someone has nothing to hide then they shouldn’t worry but we should. Going to the heart of what our society values and fears we seem to have become indifferent to the freedoms taken away from so many in the name of safety, the monitoring and tracking that the government conducts and the information we volunteer for convenience and access which the corporations sell among themselves are so accepted now that it has degraded our sense of liberty. We are bound to the habit of telling others what prudence dictates should be secrets. How many people use common sense when asking questions or when answering? Why do we need to know? Why do we suspect those who aren’t like us? We should all have something to hide because we should all be different, even if only by a small degree.

at peace

June 22, 2012

Serenity never felt so good

adding the newness of my life

together with the hope that tomorrow brings

this time, this present

I am at peace

my world may crumble any time

still I have faith in this present, this being, this moment

I believe in the power of good intention, and bad

I will think only of good when wishing our lives change

one cannot truly plan for the future

never should ignore the past

happiness is found in how well we appreciate each moment

and so if we are to be

alive and well in society

little planning is necessary

the past can be a learning curve

one can not take time

only use it

so if you want to

use your time

getting money

well…

don’t know what to say,

time is the greatest currency

friendship the richness of it

take time to become friends with yourself

then it is more likely friendship will come to you too.
