The price of Freedom is Willingness;

the price of Fairness is Freedom.

ACCEPT THE LOVE AND TAKE YOUR VITAMINS

ACCEPT THE LOVE AND
TAKE YOUR VITAMINS

From Lao Thu I learned to stick to the path,

From Buddha, to question everything,

From Jesus, not to beg but to accept.

From  Bill W. I learned that all is not as it seems and to include ample Niacin in my diet.

THE BLUE MARBLE SPEAKS

Earth is a rock; Earth has no opinions; it cannot think, it cannot speak;  however…

Earth has a belief system.

If Earth could speak, it would say…

“I am hurtling through space in a perfectly straight line. I am not sure of my destination but I will arrive at the earliest possible time. Nothing can deter me; nothing can slow me down; I am following a perfectly plotted, straight path.  I am going where no Rock has ever gone before. I am Earth.”   

Of course, in reality this strong-willed rock has been in orbit for a very long time.  And so have you and I and everything else in the universe.

And that’s the Truth…

Or  is it?

Imagine

THE GREATEST DETERENT TO TRUTH: the Obsession for proof.

Q: What can be learned when an issue generates only two conflicting opinions?

A: Only that someone has remained silent?

 

The level of respect due for the beliefs of others must be based not on what they believe but on their ability to gather reliable information.

Popular opinion requires no truth.

Those who join sides miss the point.

Friendship does not come easily to Free Thinkers.

The key to Freedom is Courage. The Padlock is pressure to conform.

If I could persuade others to think as I do, I would encourage them to seek answers to every question that enters their minds and to then question the answers.

I was asked what I revered above all else. “Freedom”, I replied.
“And how do you feel about Fairness?”
“What a silly question.” I thought. “In order to be treated Fairly, one must first lose their Freedom.”

I did not reply.

FREEDOM’S COMMON INGREDIENTS

FREEDOM’S COMMON INGREDIENTS

The most important ingredient common to the lives of  artists, inventors, scientists, and composers and those who follow  is Freedom.

Without this precious necessity we become redundant clones who will go to any lengths to gain the approval of society.

Solution:

We Accept the Love and we pass it on.

We Listen to the Birdies.

We Dance to the Music.

We Share the Newness.

We Accept the Day ; we create The Morrow

We Accept the Love and we pass it on.

We accept the Gift and we pass it on.

The Gift of Love is Freedom.

We pass it on.

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.

 

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?
