Building a Life

We work on it from the moment of our birth, unknown of the labors to be work, we engage to learn, to move our body parts, express our thoughts and on to and through the many things we interact within our passing moments of building a life.

We gain the ability to focus, learn the works it takes to gain clarity, as well as learn within ourselves to have a soul that embraces the compassion’s of charity.  When and as we learn the real meaning of charity, which is “giving with care to extend that care unto others”,  we become one who is building a life which encompasses the continual learning of grace.

It’s not an ease work to endeavor building a life – we have dreams, desires, fantasies and then there is the mix or what is “reality”.   Sometimes we find triumph and sometimes we find further challenges, we learn the meaning of what it is to persevere, and things begin to develop.  Often times, we can see our dreams have come to pass, through the “review”,  we too; find it is never of the perfection we imagined, but it is of the reality which came to be.

All together, if we hold firm to the truths of loves labors and life’s works,  we can then come to appreciate the presence of Gods truths giving us more than we often have taken the time to acknowledge.  Therefore, it is unto us to Keep God First,  that our steps in building a life, is of and for; as well unto the graces of Gods Glory.

Each moment that passes is of what goes into building our life, each moment we look forward unto with positive aims and graceful consideration, is too, our pursuits in building a life.

Understanding these things in their simplest realism helps us know our every moment is precious.  In Building a Life. 

Be ever thankful unto God for such a blessing of opportunity to do so. 

Pushing to Learn and Re-Learn what we feel we know.

People simply need to concern themselves with reading and learning, moving past bias and excelling themselves beyond bigotry. In some areas that is a very big challenge. but across the country in many places it is a challenge.
Poverty is an atrocity where ever it exist and it beings with it many things which result to consume many people.
If anyone knows a sure fire way other than education and learning to eradicate, then certainly “speak up”. it is not and has never been confined strictly by race, but history has a great impact on how it was generated and what was put forth to sustain it within various ranks such as among poor whites, and among minorities in the overall general context. Segregation was a 100 yrs long mass program which was designed to insure poverty and many things.
It takes time to work out of such things, the same as for poor whites it takes time to move out of the doldrums of bigoted encampments, low and despaired income circles where educations was secondary and group think was excessive in biases.

MLK said, in the speech at Birmingham, that many poor whites who had challenges to feed their kids and educate their kids were fed a delusion, that their white skin gave them a superior edge. Time has proven again and again that to be a false premise. Black were for decades upon decades taught and treated as inferior and unable to do this or that, time again has proven all that to be wrong and without merit.

Opportunity is what works, be it black or white, education is what works be it for black or whites, and people learning to ‘teamwork” has over and over proven to be the recipe for success in America.

Poverty, the family driven by the ravages of low wages, is a distress on many fronts, and impacts families with often devastating consequences. We have so much talent and creative people lost in the grips of impoverished conditions, and often we add to it, by looking down on them, and distancing ourselves in many ways from them.
Then when occasion brings situations where the individuals from poverty meet those from means, they think they have met someone unique, but what they have come to know is the person as a individual. This is where the dignity of respect finds people communicating as people, without looking down upon each other based on skin tone and economic challenge.

It takes a great deal to learn these things, because the region came from a very turbulent history which fought with great vile to deny this type of humane learning.
Just as one poster stated, in another post:

Quote:
when people reach that $100k income status as a family”, there becomes a commonality, in economics’ which transcends the race factors, because they have “means”.

But with those means comes also the will to learn, to be civic involved, far and beyond just the church, and to have concern for community and community standards, because they can “afford” to have such concerns.

It is very difficult for anyone to build home with $8.00 an hour, or anything under $12.00 and hour. The living expense and often the work conditions become a great challenges, which does not afford, maintenance upkeep of property, be it rental or otherwise. But people try as best they can to continue to hope for better conditions.
It’s difficult when one has to avoid the “meat section” in the grocery store, because it is cost prohibitive, or they must make meals of things without the regard for the nutritional factors on the packaging, because the point becomes to put a meal on the table as a basic. When the Winter heat bill comes, or the summer cooling bill comes, provided one even has air conditioning. These things make great challenges.

The concept of the poor and the improvised community’s often filled with many mis conceptions about individuals, Yet, without mistake there is crime, there is violence but it is not a party of everyone who is within the spectrum of poverty and ghetto like unsustainable housing conditions. It’s equally the same with people in Trailor parks or trailer parked in the countryside, they are doing what they can with the conditions which surround them, but as individuals, there are many who not only want to do better, there are some anguished because they can’t find ways to do better and become bitter, resentful and even violent. These are conditions of impoverished conditions which spans a wide range of variables.
Maybe we can’t fix it, but we can fix our attitude in how we interpret and how we structure out minds to consider. We have the power to do that.

Mistreatment and ill considered treatment is a devastating things, whether one is wealth or dire broke, it is a horrendous burden to overcome. This we should consider when we face and see people whom we know is facing challenges.

We’ve in many ways forgotten the power of a “greeting” in casual form, such as a simple hello, or even a passing acknowledgment of presence of others. We become a contributor to the challenges so many face when we loose the humanity to simply greet others when in general populated public places.
That by no means does not mean to not be of caution, because crime is not confined by race, in some cases it is not confined to the impoverished. We see well to do people harming and killing each other all the time.

Its up to us as individual to learn and discern to have social graces in our daily doings.

I can tell anyone, sickness, the great equalizer, can befall anyone at any time. and in some cases the one you may have respected less may be the very one who gives you the greatest care, even beyond what one may receive from their own family.

We should be willing to learn these things, and not assume it only befall others, because we could be that “other” it befalls.

These may to some sound like ‘bleeding heart dribble”, but it is the reality we often fear thinking, and become terrified to consider. This is when we ask God for the wisdom and strength of what is “compassionate” awareness.

TRUST

TRUST

Either you are willing to work to build it based on being honorable unto what you claim is the honest aspects of yourself.

If you have a reluctance to communicate and have a problem expressing what you think and feel, you will probably have a hard time not only building trust, but you may need to work more on ‘first, trusting yourself”.

It’s not likely that you will find trust when you have your self focus on a malicious agenda. It’s quietly likely that you will not only abuse the trust others try and extend to you, you will certainly abuse and misuse yourself and deny your own trust in yourself to be honorably based in good will toward self and others.

The big question may well be, What is Trust to YOU” if it is based on people giving you stuff, or doing favors for you… you may well be more of a user than a person who is seeking trust or even one who is trust worthy.

Trust is first and foremost a high regard and self investment in and for the integrity and character of ones self and the work one puts into the dignity of supporting and strengthening their own self constitution to be an honorable person.. (If that is lacking), you already have a problem that is bigger than your current method of living, and you will feel overwhelmed and may well become desperate. And, nothing is more dangerous than a desperate person. For they potentially will damage and harm themselves and certainly the potential damage and harm they can or may do to others is not of a factor they will have a deep concern about.

People get hung up far too often, trying to measure trust in a vain bubble that is all about their erotic aspirations and sensual self consumption of self gratifying romanticism’s of fantasy pursuits, which frequently become based more upon who is patronizing them at a near ass kissing clip.

Many people run around crying tears borne of their own vain expectations which result to meet the lack of getting those expectation fulfilled by the efforts and acts of others. These people are better known in simple terms as “Users” / “Abusers” and they may and can quickly become deceivers” Beware, these types can become filled with rage and driven by vengeful motivations, and never realize it was their own expectations that has driven them to such levels of madness.

Some get fanciful “infatuations”, and build fantasy scenarios in their mind and try and per-define the roles and acts the other person is expected to meet… such people are not seeking to build a trust, nor a trusting relation that has a mutual respectful regard for and of each other, They are seeking a “puppet” whom they can manipulate as if they themselves are the puppet master.

Trusts exist in various levels and to various degree, when people have a mutual respectful attractions toward each other… UNFORTUNATELY, many take it down hill in a bold tumble, rather than to reciprocate and validate it with honest and honorable mutual efforts to embrace and strengthen it.

Now, so what of “love’… ???
Infatuation can be a highway to love, but it also is one that travels in both directions, because it can be a delusion that drives one blind and they may run off the roadway to love or get turned around and head in the opposite direction of love. What matters… is where “trust” is..

Trust works well with the eyes open … as well as the mind and spirit, but first and foremost it will require that one is of trust in themselves and what their motivations and aims of association and relations is. As well as what it aspires to be or become

So many are far weaker than they will admit, when it comes to “Trust” in themselves, and they become more bent on testing and trying tactical manipulations, and ritualistic rites of testing task… Until they forget to be a person who simply appreciates and respects and to be one who can respectfully regard being appreciated and respected.

T. R. U. S. T.
( Temperament Respect Understanding/Understood, Share Truthfully )

Can you do that ???

Journey where you Love

~Journey where you Love ~It takes what many fear giving… the simplicity, of appreciation”…
If vanity is your claim to self stature, then you’ve already found the fool within the making of what is yourself.

If you’ve come to thing that fashion is making your more than a person who can give and share, then you’ve cast your own soul into the abyss of being bought for a delusions and pushing nothing more than an illusion.

When you ride the back of a claim of degree and think it has made you above others or another, you’ve already sank to the low and missed the value and the treasure of compassion and respectful regard of others.

if the shape of your #ss and the bulge in your chest has you inflated in the minds, you’ve already diminished what of character that might otherwise be found.

by all means yes care to take care, be of care to maintain a body that is desirable, but let not the eyes of lust make you become a fool, who quickly becomes unaware of how to be a person of grace with a manner and nature of being a communicable social human being.

If you think the attractions of your tease is all that float your boat, you probably will be lost in the sea of life… playing games with ships that pass in the night… by morning you find another day is gone and you are still alone.

why delude yourself to pretend you are a queen, when life facts is that you are not, you ae simply a person, living while you can, because one day you too will pass as is true for us all.
There is no guarantee of tomorrow, but you deny yourself the chance to love today… you fein the appreciations given to you, and act like you detest the desire that is shown of you… and still within self elation and sitting on an imaginary throne,… you still find yourself alone.

Oh how time flies within the delusion so many create within their vanity of self. How little of love so many know, because loving and sharing is something they don’t share nor show.

What does it gain other than delusion that deflate and people claim they have time to wait. Time is a one way gate…

Journey where you “love”… and you may find the delights of living.

                                                           Explore the Experiences

Do you want love, or do you just like the game of “chase” and “to be chased” ?

Love is no respecter of individuals, love remains what it is, it is universal in what it is, it can function across any man created barrier, or any conjured concept that man hangs on to.
Love does not regard nor favor any ethnicity, nor any skin color,; and it favors no gender or any of such things, and love does not have a preference for any particular age.
Love is of many principles, which can only be embrace mutually by shared honestly and expressive communications.
It remains always a feeling, which has a spiritual connection within the essence of all living beings and things.
It is unique in being what it is, and it bring about the uniqueness of each individual –
We as people blind ourselves with the deceptions of our own eyes and many times the lusting for the material matter that is surely to come and go with time…
Yet, love is of the spirit, and it is everlasting as being Love.

Those who can endure the many emotions within what makes up love, will find more love… within the truths and honesty they live and share.

You can try and steal the sweetness as if robbing honey from a honey comb, and one may get stung by the bee’s – but with love, the bee’s yield their honey and continue to make more.

Most can’t find love, because many refuse to let go of their own selfishness.

Love is to be shared as freely as the breeze shares it comforts, Love is to be shared the same as sunshine denies no plant the nourishment’s it needs to live.

So many delude themselves to only see the fantasy of their lust for romantic fancy, but neglect to consider and some don’t care for the labors and works that are embedded within Love.

Many who find that 40- 50 and beyond years of love, have learned to give and share freely… and each will tell you of the many sacrifices and change and growths they have gone through to build such an enduring loving relation… simply because they cared to ” Love’

The world is lonely only when our selfishness brings us to ignore and deny to engage the works of loving. which is simply learning to share and communicate, to respect and appreciate, to work to understand and work on being understood..
when the selfishness of individual, make an individual lazy and fearful of such things, then they have made themselves lonely, by their denial to embrace Love, and become one who is sharing the expressions and exchanges of loving.

Seek not love through sympathy by the cries of desperation.. but share what of love you know and what of loving you have to share in jubilation… and time will find one enchanted within a loving relation.

“The Perfect Person”

“The Perfect Person”

A delusion… that confounds many

The adult sized fantasy of “a perfect person”, is probably one of the elements of imagination and delusion, that has driven people “mad” for Centuries upon Centuries.

Temptations will always haunt the individual, and the illusion of perfect is not even a conceptual image in the minds of an individual, because every day, they will want to change something else about the other, and themselves.

It’s amazing how we can be adults and claim to be so intelligent and so learned and then become less equipped than an infant in our concepts of how to simply appreciate the uniqueness of the individualism of human existence.

It seems the older some get the more insidious they become, in search of a delusion that they themselves have not found out how to live up to even within themselves.

The Grand Delusion seems to be a sickness that comes with the concepts of claiming to be learned people. maybe it’s why many of the poor and those nation and people around the world who don’t claim such high intellect, still know how to love for the sake and principle of love, even when they are without the conveniences, and the luxuries that the so claimed learn have in abundance.

The great paradox of “self-delusion” is not a sickness that many seem not to want diagnosed nor will they acknowledge the need for the diagnosis.

Loving don’t give a damn about anyone’s claim of degree or work status titles, at best it can and will continue to make them try and see how foolish their aim and claim of reliance on such, brings them to see that none of such claims can ever nor will ever give nor guarantee them any claim to a care free “love”…
And most people run around looking for a ‘care free” love, and caught in the delusion of the chase of such, until they can’t many time figure out how to love themselves enough to have it over flow into wanting to share it with someone else. Instead, they are lost in their status titles and their claims of be learned. But they are and often times become only more pronounced in their ignorance of what is love and what is the nature of works required within loving.

Today, we have more and more people who claim themselves too good for building love, because they are too absorbed in their titles, and their claims of status they focus upon to try and embellish their titles. And the result is a mass of loveless people, who claim to be so learned. None of which love as the fact and principle of what is love cares one bit about such. We can see broke people who live on the streets who have love far greater and strong than some of those who claim to have degrees layered on top of degree’s or who have titles that pay them a kings bounty, and they often times become the worst at loving.

They try to outsmart love, and find themselves feeling more foolish as they wallow in their aloneness and crafted delusion of trying to outsmart the principles of love.

There will be many more to sit on a bench, withering to their skeletal selves, all the while deluding themselves to thing they are too smart and too learn and their titles and status claims make them too arrogant and haughty to know that love cannot be bought nor contained by such vain things. When truth and fact is, love flees quickly from Ignorance, and love does not bond itself within the haughty mind, nor does it seek to duel with the delusion of foolishness.

None of which composes love, as of being what is Love, nor is any of such the fact and principle of what is love is; such things, Love, cares not one bit about such. For Love is itself, fulfilled in being itself.

We can see broke people who live on the streets who have love far greater and strong than some of those who claim to have degrees layered on top of degree’s or who have titles that pay them a kings bounty, and they often times become the worst at loving.

When truth and fact is, love flees quickly from Ignorance, and love does not bond itself within the haughty mind, nor does it seek to duel with the delusion of foolishness.

Love is the gift that lives in the shared lives of the humbled.

Education degree not required, money, not required, title nor status is required, for all such things have a proclivity to become vanity, and vanity is a vexing demeanor to what the essence and nature of beauty of that which love is.

Such things of vanity, only enrages the regenerating 20 head dragon that guards love, when they come with all their vain acclaims and crafted schemes.

 Image

For the 20 head dragon only yields the gift of Loves endless graces, unto the humbled, who pursue the engagement unto loves many wonders within loving, who seek to know and to share “LOVE” within and through the honestly of Loving.

One can take money and buy a delusion of a million flairs, and by status claims one can impress a fool, to chase a delusion by painting imagines of illusions…
But unto love, only the humbled and honest who seek with truth of passion to love and be loving and accept the embrace of being loved, can truly know and behold the wonders of Love through humbleness unto loves graces and accept the duties within loves works.

Such a simple thing, many become too haughty within themselves to care to learn and many care even less to seek to understand, therefore.. Many fail to gain the wisdom’s of loves truths.

Love is the gift that lives in the shared lives of the humbled.

Education degree not required, money, not required, title nor status is required, for all such things have a proclivity to become vanity, and vanity is a vexing demeanor to what the essence and nature of beauty of that which love is.

 

Such things of vanity, only enrages the regenerating 20 head dragon that guards love, when they come with all their vain acclaims and crafted schemes,  for the 20 head dragon only yields to the humbled, who pursue the engagement unto loves many wonders within loving who seek to know and share love.

Finding ‘Truths”

“Truths”

  • When a great truth once gets abroad in the world, no power on earth can imprison it, or prescribe its limits, or suppress it. It is bound to go on till it becomes the thought of the world.

Frederick Douglass, in a Speech to the International Council of Women (31 March 1888

_________________

Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in “The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet”, spoken by the character Sherlock Holmes

__________

If anyone could prove to me that Christ is outside the truth, and if the truth really did exclude Christ, I should prefer to stay with Christ and not with truth.

Fyodor Dostoevsky, in a letter To Mme. N. D. Fonvisin (1854), as published in Letters of Fyodor Michailovitch Dostoevsky to his Family and Friends (1914), translated by Ethel Golburn Mayne, Letter XXI, p. 7

  • Although I am a typical loner in daily life, my consciousness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has preserved me from feeling isolated.

Albert Einstein, in “My Credo”, a speech to the German League of Human Rights, Berlin (Autumn 1932), as published in Einstein: A Life in Science (1994) by Michael White and John Gribbin, p. 262.

_____________

  • An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.

Mahatma Gandhi, Young India 1924-1926 (1927), p. 1285.

  • The truth comes as conqueror only because we have lost the art of receiving it as guest.

Rabindranath Tagore in The Fourfold Way of India (1924); this has become paraphrased as “Truth comes as conqueror only to those who have lost the art of receiving it as friend”.

_______________

  • Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.

Mahatma Gandhi, Basic Education (1951), p. 89.

What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn’t make it worse. Not being open about it doesn’t make it go away. And because it’s true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn’t there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.

Eugene Gendlin, “The Listening Manual” in Focusing (1978), p. 138

___________________

But at the end of the day, the truth is not determined by what makes you feel warm and safe. It is not determined by what gets you the most friends. It is not determined by what makes people be nice to each other. It is not determined by a cost-benefit analysis of holding a certain belief. It is determined by reality. And those who willingly compromise their understanding of reality still have to live in it. They just might find themselves without a decent map.

Zinnia Jones, “Those with No Allegiance to Reality” (2012-06-20)
