Silly Saturday

I saw a tiny alien standing in a tree today. The cheeky devil waved at me. He knew all my reactions and matched them exactly. I was surprised. Quite amused. He felt the same. Two strange beings coming upon each other. An entertaining mirage? But...

What Suki Taught Me

My friend Suki taught me a lot about death.  She recently died.  She was a good friend.  We connected often throughout the day and she would teach me presence. I miss her.  I could always count on her support to be present.  She was a great...

What do you think?

Listening to a university lecture, I learnt of a study done on children observing the affects of goal and reward opposed to no goal and reward. A group of children were divided in two groups.  They were all given crayons and paper. One group was told...

Colour Me Loose

Abandon.  A  talent of mine. Loose.  No problem for me. None of the linear, straight and narrow. Nope, my excellence is no control. Others about me seem to have a different struggle,  too much control.  I feel sympathy for their strictness, their...

No Choice

The paradox as she came to know it, unfolded itself slowly. Entering,  no space granted in which to ponder its puzzle from a distance, she was immediately sucked into its negative vortex. The ensuing suffering caused a yearning for death; a need...

Considering Idea, Number 24, 455

As I meander exploring the world, I discover an interesting scientific agreement.  Humanity owes their survival excellence to an evolutionary skill that provided us with the ability to make quick judgements. It wasn't very long ago that humanity...

The PLANET WE CALL VALHALLA

When I read this write of Thom's, I so enjoyed it that I had to repost.  It is an abstract  dream of mine expressed eloquently by our Thom ... it is a way that could be if only... we stop competing and work to 'love' each other.  It is possible!  It is!

Social Skills Is Another Word For Acting

Up to this weekend, the term 'social skills' has floated through my mind and out my mouth without me ever focusing on what those words truly signify. To me it was a vague abstract language term used to describe a charming person to whom others are...

A Long Stream

Three pages.  My practice. I haven't written three page in a few days.  What's more I have never posted a pure stream of consciousness before, not without a grand sweep of editing. When I publish a write, I do it  with an expectation of something or...

Just Because I Can

I see you! I see you, dear thick-skinned-descendant-from-the-less-feeling-gene-pool on the planet.  I see how proudly you display that horny hide of yours bellowing, "I am tough.  I am the example to follow." I feel quite free in writing this...

A surmising of the sensitive nature

All negative thought is based on fear. This is my conclusion from having watched my brain's mind for over thirty years.  Although I do not have privy to another's mind and this conclusion is subjectively founded, the more I read psychology and...

Dedicated To My Favourites

In my efforts to understand my choices, in order to better benefit from them,  I incessantly discover that most of those choices are driven by unconscious forces.  I learn over and over again that choices are based on more than is readily apparent.  ...

A Pout

Driven away by the inane competition of banter, I have nothing to say. In my subjective perception, I do not criticise although my retreat is a reaction based on distaste.   It is a personal choice based on a subjective preference and yes, I...

Scarlett Letters

It is interesting that the mission statement is one love at Thoughts.com.  Where does shutting down someone without a conversation of grace fit into that the definition of 'ONE LOVE' if I may be bold to ask? In contrast, we do not pay for this...

The best, the best, and what's more, the best!

This better than best irks me. Why do we care so much about what is the better than the best? How does better than help build relationship and connection? From my viewpoint this obsession with better than,  hinders what we really need and that's...

To Whom It May Concern

People who do not understand that humans live in subjective experience cannot offer respect to others.  People who are well immersed in their intellect and no longer hear their heart, cannot feel empathy.  People who have not learnt that the choice is...
