GRATITUDINUS OBLONGATA (OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT)

GRATITUDINUS OBLONGATA
(OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT)

We who fail to accept feel obligated.
To be obliged inspires gratitude.
Expressing gratitude may obligate the innocent.

So…

Now that we agree lets form a group.
We need never feel obligated ever again.

Accept the membership and pass it on.

SMILE,DAMMIT

Conceit, haughtiness, egoism, feelings of superiority, excessive self-pride, overconfidence, superciliousness, self-importance and condescension are the descriptions of we whose true feelings more accurately could be labeled as sadness,  an emotion  which then threatens the hearts and minds of those in its presence.

Conceit is the opposite of pride, the enemy of dignity and the destructive force that limits friendship and destroys Love.

Pride on the other hand is an expression of Love.

A closer look at  conceit may well reveal the existence of an enormous,  secret fear  so devious as to escape detection even by the owner.

A smile however, bonds those who wear it and replaces that glimmer of bravado that says “you can’t touch me. “

Oops. you caught me talking to myself. 

Smile, dammit.

LOVE BECOMES THE LOVER.(Re-edited and amended 10/19/2017)

LOVE BECOMES THE LOVER

To Love is to Heal.

To Accept Love is to Be Healed.

Healing begins when Fear is vanquished.

Fear returns to the shadows and birds begin to chirp.

Fear reveals itself again as first light dawns and wanes as…

The Light of Love is felt with the decision to Accept.

Acceptance lights the Path.

The Path is NOW

This is the way,.

To Heal;

To be Healed.

Love becomes the Lover.

And Fear becomes a fading memory.

Accept the LOVE and pass it on.

LIVE SERVE & MOVE ALONG

LIVE SERVE & MOVE ALONG

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak
Line item listings
Of proof.
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Uncomfortably
Long of tooth.

So where are they now; What purpose was served
What evidence
Did  survive?
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.)

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.
Line item listings
Gone.
Service to Other; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to
None
Life again moving
Along.

“WHAT IS FORGIVENESS?”


Baruch Koritan

 

“WHAT IS FORGIVENESS?”

From a recent conversation:

He had searched for advice on how to handle one of the most troubling experience of his life. It was worse than losing a client. It was worse than losing a wife. it was worse than being told he had a life threatening disease. “What do I do?” he asked. (How could he not know the answer?) The answer came from an old friend; it was in the form of a question:

Q: “What is forgiveness?” came the ‘answer’ posing as a question. “Is not Forgiveness Love”?   “Is not Forgiveness the operative description of Love.

“It appears that Love is not a human thing. The human thing is surely Fear, also known as Dishonesty, is it not?.”

“Must not The Source of Love (and Forgiveness) be God? Is not the experience of Love ( and therefore Forgiveness) the result of accepting that Love?”

(According to Lao Tzu and the first Buddha, even an atheist can experience Love simply by doing Loving things for others).

To lose the Love of one’s children is incredibly painful. And though pain feels like a gift from The Liar of All Things, it  is in reality a ‘ Gift’ from The Giver of All Things.”

The bias of a lynch mob brought his  family together And He began againTo write.

The bias is the memory of a family not together and He began again To right… wrongs.

TIME AS EXPERIENCED AND AS REMEMBERED


REMEMBERED

 

Time for all purposes is measured two ways; the way we experience it and the way we remember it.

If you find yourself complaining that life is going too fast as you age I’m guessing that you need to get our head out of Your Past and open Your Present.

Our minds when in use, think in Real Time just as they did during our first year as guests on Planet Earth as we crawled about looking for a way to rise to our feet and better understand our environment.

Fear drives us to reminisce in search of better times. We hope as we do so that somehow this will build us back up and supply us with a new vigor, increased courage, as aids to facing the problems which threaten our current feelings of safety.

We must stay in the present as much as possible.

This, not That.

This is where Life is.

This is the secret to staying young.

Lets live it.

Lets Accept The Love and Pass it on.

 

 

HOW NOW BROWN TAO

 

WHAT IS BETTER THAN PROGRESS?

PROGRESS  IS A MEASURE OF PERFECTION, IS IT NOT?

IT IS SAID BY SOME THAT DESIRE IS OKAY BUT THAT DESIRE  FOR PERFECTION MAKES SAUSAGE OF  AN OTHERWISE HEALTHY EGO.

BEEN THERE, HAVE YOU?

CAN WE BE DARING WITHOUT AN EYE FOR PERFECTION?

WHAT HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO DO?

OR…

HOW HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO BE?

AWARE?

OR WARY?

SAFE?

NOT SO SAFE?

DESIRE IS OKAY ISN’T IT?

HOW ABOUT WILLINGNESS?

THESE APPEAR TO BE SOME RATHER DARING TRAITS, WOULDN’T YOU SAY?

SAFE?

NOT THERE YET?

WHAT ARE THE TRAITS OF A HEALTHY EGO?

IS IT OKAY TO TRY SOMETHING NEW?

CAN WE, MAY WE, (DO WE DESIRE TO) ACCEPT THE LOVE AND PASS IT ON?

LET’S DO IT.

OKAY?

ACCEPT?

ACCEPT THE LOVE?

ARE YOU SMILING?

AND PASSING IT ON?
