Day two of the series on Balance.
Just in case you missed yesterday (or I wasn’t 100% clear on the overall intention);
My hope is to gently introduce how we all tend to step out of alignment with the world around us as we focus more on being right, moral, or just; rather than simply seeking acceptance of the state of balance that surrounds us at all times.

In yesterday’s post I spoke to the understanding that our cultural need for judgement and condemnation is one of the major contributing factors of our collective suffering and unconsciousness.
It was brought to my attention that the post might have seemed a bit like an amalgam of several different insights (much obliged, even though my school project made it so we couldn’t discuss it fully, Thanks as usual Marquise!).
So, I’ve decided to turn this into a series surrounding conceptualization and internalization of the notion of balance in a much more complete way.

It’s incredible to me how filled with choices this life is, everyday.
Even more amazing is how there seems to be a single choice that’s capable of delivering the largest impact on our lives and equally able to go completely unnoticed at the point at which we actually render a decision…
Would you agree nearly all of us would like to believe we possess true power, that we are the masters of our domain, true creators of our own fate, and capable of materializing any one of the innumerable ideas bouncing around in our heads the moment we render a verdict as to which of them actually originated from within us versus being the result of some sort of conditioning?

- “Can you believe people actually get away with that?!”
- “There needs to be better laws in place to protect us from this evil [entity] that seeks to rid us of our freedoms and take away our [noun]”
- “How can anyone deal with such tyranny?”
Any of that sound familiar?
If you’ve spent anytime on social media, it should. Continue reading “Victory Over Villainy – First Steps Toward Expelling The Victim Mentality”
When was the last time you slowed down long enough to listen to the wind blow through the trees or appreciate the laughter of a child as if it was the first time you ever heard such a melodious sound?
Why is it so easy to get so caught up in all the other things?
It was early along on my recent path that a wonderful woman, whom I paid to dole out sage advice, told me that “no relationship lasts forever”. Continue reading “A Sandcastle’s Perspective On Life – Before The Waves Call Us Home”
Well it’s about time I face facts and give into the “real world” once again.
It’s time for me to once more become the full time idea-guy/whipping-boy/problem-solver/top-sales-person, or whatever, for some major corporation…

I’m guilty, as are we all…
I inserted that image (which I really hope loaded before you got here…) for two reasons;
- First, the fact it popped up first when researching this post made me smile
- Second, to give you a quick taste of the whiplash we feel as we get even a touch emotional (i.e. “what the hell is this guy trying to accuse me of”) to the logical (i.e. “assessing the full scope of the language”)
[and If the second didn’t happen for you, hopefully the first still did]
The Sword of Justice
How much weight do words have? Would we become noticeably heavier standing on a scale while someone lobbed the “unspeakable” at us? Continue reading ““It’s My Right!” – Culpable, Onus, and Judgement – Our Search For Exoneration of Self”
