Confusion

In my estimation all confusion among people stems from a lack of language because our confusion fundamentally stems from our incessant desire to understand things through words.

The Nature of Forgiveness and Restitution

If someone breaks something of yours, be it intentional or accidental, any ethically minded individual will immediately extend his or her apologies and offer to repair the damage or attempt to replace the item or its value at their own expense.

If however, the individual only says they are sorry and then Continue reading “The Nature of Forgiveness and Restitution”

The Responsibility of Women

Women of the world, hear this!

Men are conditioned to go where they are most needed. If you want a man as a husband, make it evident to him this is the only reason you are getting to know him. If you marry him and want him to be a good husband, make it evident to him, in as many ways you can, that the role he plays as your husband is important to you and why. If you have children and want him to be a good father, never miss the opportunity to tell him how important his role is to your children and repeatedly show him how much you will trust them in his care and how much you are willing to count on him to be their provider, protector, educator and care giver. And if your children grow up, be sure to always express the respect you feel for their father by never undermining the authority and responsibility you’ve given him.

But women of the world, if you continue to tell men that all you need them for is Continue reading “The Responsibility of Women”

Competence

For some of us, being ignorant of our own incompetence is the one thing that staves us from debilitating depression. And unfortunately it is becoming increasingly difficult to live blissfully in that ignorance because examples of competence are so frequently flaunted before us. Stop comparing yourself to others. Look only to yourself today and vow to be better at whatever it is you did today when time comes to do it again, tomorrow.

Eating

There is no such thing as healthy eating. There are healthy people that eat and unhealthy people that eat and everyone in-between.  The difference is merely this: A person with super-human health could survive by eating anything while a person with a very weak body will only be able to survive on a very specific diet.  Therefore, identify your level of strength an eat accordingly.

Strength

The more you persist on enduring and living through your tests and trials rather than overcoming them, the more they will persist in your life and bring suffering to you and those around you. And don’t be fooled into thinking that the numbness you’ve developed over that time is any sign of strength. Quite the opposite, in fact! It is your demise.   So long as individual humans fail to learn this lesson, so too will continue to be the fate of humanity.  One cycle of pain and suffering after another.  We will either solve the puzzle or lose our humanity by avoiding to do so.  Such is how life tends to teach us with its fractal order of things.

Creators

Give resource to the poor and, over time, you will produce a society with more poor people to feed.  Instead, focus on granting opportunities to those wanting of it and then let resource be rewarded to those that earn it, no matter where they came from. Only then will you create a noble society of creators and not of takers.
