Truth is Not Exclusive.

012

Truth is not exclusive.

It is hidden everywhere in plain sight

It is visible at night.

It is never right and certainly never wrong.

It moves along

Meandering here and there.

 

Truth is not exclusive.

It can be told many ways.

With a burr or a lisp

As the tellers gaze

Reveals yet more.

Exclusive?

Never.

 

It can be told in many ways.

Many, many ways.

A MESSAGE TO AGING INVENTORS

A MESSAGE TO AGING INVENTORS

Self-employed people seem to live longer and, appear to be younger than the salaried majority. Wrinkles and age spots go unnoticed as their audience responds instead to this fountain of youthful enthusiasm.

These are the scientists, the artists and the curious. They are the Leaders in society, a label given them by those who look to others  for the answers to their own questions.

There are very few skeptics among them and rarely look to others for their answers.

If curiosity haunts you, if a lack of trust in the shared opinions of others taunts, perhaps you spend more time than most, seeking answers to your own questions.

Or…

If you are curious about the validity of the set of ideas set forth in this essay, perhaps you will share you opinion of such…

Or…

If you’ve already forgotten the first line, feel free to read it again.

 

SMILE WHEN YOU SAY THAT, PARDNER

Love is a necessary component of healthy living.

However…

Love being unconditional (outbound)…

And, the motive-motif of all life forms being conditional (inbound)…

What now?

Love is ours- not for the asking, but for the acceptance, thereof. And that ain’t all folks…

We may continue to experience this healing component to better living  if we choose…

So…

Smile everybody…

And Trust.

Trust? 

And smile.

Trust and smile?

Trust and smile and share.

Trust and smile and share?

Um Hmm.

Are you sure about this?

Trust me.

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.

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.

THE OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW

THE OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW

Yes, I know; the OXYMORONIC information contained in the title of this article is obvious. But consider these if you will:

Those who vote rhetorically are not voters but doters.

Those who choose sides are not choosers but losers.

Those who seek solutions lead by default.

Those who seek to lead are at fault.

AND…

Those who TAKE steps to discover themselves  are eager to share their discoveries.

Those who OBEY steps lose themselves and are eager to enforce their new rules.

Oddly, members of either group would probably agree with these words and defend them.

Rulekeepers say that Pathfinders lack discipline and have a serious ego problem.

Pathfinders say that Rule Keepers are bullies and have a serious ego problem.

Is either group right? Is either group wrong?
