We exist in divergent realities.

We, depending on our culture, degree of sensitivity, interest of study, and life events experience diverse worlds.   We presume we all exist in the same world but this is incorrect.  We communicate as though others will comprehend ideas...

100 years in the past or the future?

The question posed, I ponder.     Would I rather be able to visit 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?   The key word here is visit, meaning I would return to my existing life.   If I chose the past, I would experience...

Ah Thoughts.com where are you?

Nothing stays the same, yes?  And what can I say about what has happened to Thoughts.com? I wish there was no prior comparison to what was.   Do I sigh here?  What do I do?  What remains  but the lament of what once was and the fact that it...

We are all in service to others

Early morning again and here I am Blank-page.  You call me and I comply.   What do I have to say?  Nothing much.  Listening to music while I wait for words that would appear to you, dearest Blank-page.   Working diligently to remain aware...

Flaws and Faults

I hear the word flaw used on a daily basis.   People will say, I have flaws or faults.  These two personally disliked words say nothing but demean the person to which the word is directed.   A flaw is an expectation or desire.  A flaw is...

Why is your perception confident?

Why is your perception confident and mine uninformed?   When our interpretative conclusions contrast why do they prove one is right and the other wrong? Could there be something other than right and wrong causing our difference?   Could we...

The Catch-All

Fear and its many children number in as many negative adjectives as exist in any language.   Fear is a catch-all word that includes varying degrees of intensity from terror to disquiet. At its best, fear is a warning system of threat...

Channeling A Force Neutral

If I redefine all human drives into a neutral definition like energy, how would I look upon humanity's preferences and choices?   If ambition is abundant energy, would laziness be the lack of energy?   Would having abundant energy be more...

And isn't your life . . .

“And isn't your life extremely flat with nothing whatever to grumble at!” - W. S. Gilbert.   The quotes in the book I am using for writing inspiration are not what they seem. The above quote was extracted from a poem named, The Baffled Grumbler....

Such is the human race

Such is the human race. Often it does seem such a pity that Noah… didn't miss the boat. - Mark Twain.     Yes, I agree, we are frustrating to each other. Each of us, at different levels of intellect, emotional intelligence and unique...

Many People Would Rather Die

“Many people would rather die than think. In fact, they do.” - Bertrand Russel.   This quote affects me personally since I have often been the recipient of a distasteful, “You are making me think!” The utterance is usually peppered with...

Only Two Things Are Infinite

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.” - Albert Einstein     Repeating myself, statements that freeze humanity's attributes confuse me. We are processes not stagnant frozen...

Questioning Brains

“The world is made up for the most part of morons and natural tyrants, sure of themselves, strong in their own opinions, never doubting anything” - Clarence Darrow.   Following my dedication on writing per the inspiration that the quotes in my...

A disinclination to learn?

“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so” - Douglas Adams   Confirming the quote's inference that some humans resolutely...

Overestimated His Ability

Fulfilling my commitment in writing every day, I turn to the next quote in my writing inspiration book, an Oscar Wilde quote. This quote leaves me cold. Oscar wrote this in humor but for me no section of this quote makes me laugh.   “I...

Hell Is Other People

It isn’t easy fulfilling a dedication to write every day.  The problem rises as to what will I say?  Is there anything to say today?  Questions from a debris of wanting to entertain, please and glean validation or why would I fear the void created by...

The Reprimanders Don't Get It

I received the following comment from a Thoughts friend.  It inspired me to write this blog.  Yayuki’s comment deserved a deep consideration and careful response.  I hope after these words are read, I have done justice to the sentiment that I...

A Disinterest In Debate

I write to express my subjective view of this reality.  I do not write to convince you that your view is not correct.  I write to affirm and at times notice the misperceptions of what I have learnt in my meditation, mindfulness practice.  It is a...

Flawed, faulted or learning?

It’s time to change the manner in which we look at ourselves.   We are told to assess our flaws.  It is suggested we realize what we are doing wrong.  It is advised to keep our behaviour in check.   However that advice is based on an...

Randomness ... NOT

"Things change into that which is most probable, and what is most probable is always a result of a mechanical event of cause and effect.   The degree to which an event is more probable than another is the degree to which your reality is setting...

To Whom Will Come and Read

In the second, the change from whence presence is directly experienced, we diffuse into the flow, transmuting the loneliness of separation.      Awareness becoming aware of itself, nothing more, nothing less.  The past and future vanish into...
