The Future

One scare might be the gap between the haves and have nots would keep getting larger because of the tech revolution. Everyone should have a solid base education (through college if needed or wanted) in order to be able to determine one’s own destiny in this new age.

An education teaching life skills like Technology, Language, Finance, Reading, Creating (writing, etc.), Health, Philosophy, and Psychology. Math and Science could be electives.

self-talk

Logic says we should be ready with
ways to stay relatively
calm when
we’re
having to
deal with an
emergency or a
very unusual situation.

A good way is via self-talk: repeating calmly and
silently to ourselves a planed phrase
or sentence at normal speed.

Such as
“Calm down.”
or “Calmness will get me through this.”
or “Calmness gets the job done.” 
or “Easy now.” 
or “Easy does it.” 
or “Slow down.”
or “Relax.”
etc.

Learning to use self-talk
will assist in responding well.

For instance…
Having calming words ready to assist us is what we would need if we heard someone shout, “The building’s on fire! The building’s on fire!” Calming words could save one’s own life and the lives of others. As the Boy Scout’s motto wisely states “Be prepared.”

truth & meaning 2

Is it that
we don’t find meaning

it finds us — just like happiness does?
And does meaning build
itself from what
we do?

Is truth everywhere
(When we tell a lie, it’s true a lie was told.)
and exists only in the present moment?
Can the thought of and the actuality of truth
only happen in the present moment?

We’re truth through and through and
are at the top of our part of animal kingdom,
and we’re babes of the universe as is everything else.

We’re very smart animals, and so, did they create us? Our identities, you and me?  

As toddlers, did we fall into the social trance of the most powerful tool ever created on earth? You can guess what it is and probably already know.

Language. This is probably what happened.

First we adopted the name given us and then invented our social skills using our body’s talents. As a necessary tool, each human animal invented its own unique parasitic entity (what many would call a soul or ego) using neural connections in its brain in order to get along in society, and for each of us to to repay our human animal fully, may never happen.

What
would repay
our talented animal?
A Buddha-like enlightenment
just might
do it.

If so,
would that
being then have
two separate opinions?

We’ve all heard and repeated the truism…
“Health is everything.”

But the truth is…
Our human animal
is our everything,
even one with
bad health.
