Good morning Steemit and community! I wish you all a wonderful morning full of love and happiness. Namaste
I have no room in my life for confrontation...not with my kids, my spouse, the bank, the cops, the government, a neighbor or anybody else in the world. I just woke up one day after spending 35 or even 40 years being miserable and decided
Nope, not gonna feed this fire anymore!
Well, let me tell you what has changed... absolutely everything!
This is happening as I write but I feel compelled to divulge that in the past 6 months I have had to rebuild relationships, sever many, I have cried, sort of laughed, and reevaluated my purpose in life. I can tell you with certainty that I
Writers block.. and the weather outside is just not helping. So what can I do? Well if I have no idea what to write about, then maybe that's what I should write about!? Yah seems kinda lame, but it's working for me right now and I don't care how many upvotes.
I'm looking out the window and just observing. The clouds are grey and it's cold outside. I see some snails making there way on the ground. I wonder how the rain drops feel on them. It reminds me of that movie
Honey I Shrunk the kids. Are rain drops heavy to such a small creature? Do they just love the rain? Perhaps it feels therapeutic dropping on the outside of their shell.
Im not going to say that it's easy to remove writers block , but when you just look out the window and write about what you observe it unlocks different avenues to think
Mental illness is not a joke. It's not something to use to get attention.
I have found that an increasing number of people that I know, like to
pretend to be mentally ill to explain away their laziness, or lack of
desire to make an effort in an aspect of their life. This is not to disparage
people with actual problems. It does a disservice to those with actual
problems to pretend to have problems when you don't.
This can't be just something I'm noticing. I hear it all the time,
It's just , or
It must be my Asperger's. If a person doesn't have an
actual problem, then blaming inattentiveness, or lack of care on a
nonexistent illness, mental or physical, is called malingering.
By comparison, I offer the case of false rape accusation. How is that, at
all, the same? I'll tell you. When someone invents a crime, they say has
been committed against them, and it is found out, this leads others to
take it less seriously t
In this article I will argue why consciousness can never be understood in an analytical manner.
The proponents of intrinsic consciousness or of the primacy of consciousness (I am one of them), consider that pristine awareness (or primordial consciousness) is the ground of all existence. In other words primordial consciousness is irreducible.
If primordial consciousness is irreducible and the underlying ground of everything that exists, it is Absolute and can never be understood in terms of relations to other things. You see, as Buckminster Fuller explained, analytical understanding is a process of building relations, of building an ontology. We understand an object by its structural and functional relations to other objects, by listing its constituent features. All these connections build a so-called plane of understanding, that metaphorically stands under the object to be understood. All objects, events and situations we mentally only know i
In the following I want to introduce myself to you, as my future community to share my thoughts and opinions with, so maybe this should get a bit of a personal touch and should bring myself closer to you. The main objective I´m pursuing (as far as I can just determine it by now) is, that we can interact as honest and deep as it is possible and learn and discuss from and with each other.
Some short information regarding myself - I´m a Guy in the twenties, living in Germany, and I would rather call me versatile.

Read the Message of The Kybalion–and follow the example of “the wise”–avoiding the
mistake of “the half-wise” who perish by reason of their folly.
“THE ALL” IN ALL.
“While All is in THE ALL, it is equally true that THE ALL is in All. To him who truly understands this truth hath
come great knowledge.”–The Kybalion.
How often have the majority of people heard repeated the statement that their Deity
(called by many names) was “All in All,” and how little have they suspected the inner occult
truth concealed by these carelessly uttered words? The commonly used expression is a
survival of the ancient Hermetic Maxim quoted above. As the Kybalion says: “To him who
truly understands this truth, hath come great knowledge.” And, this being so, let us seek this
truth, the understanding of which means so much. In this statement of truth–this Hermetic
Maxim–is concealed one of the greatest philosophical, scientific and religious truths.
We have given you the Hermetic Teac
Freedom - that word has many meanings. It seems everyone understands something different by it.
Traditionally Freedom meant the absence of (personal) slavery.
More recently things like freedom of speech and freedom of press embody the meaning of freedom.
For some freedom is the total abolishment of any state like structure.
For others the state is necessary to allow them to be free, a protection against people who want to take away the freedom.
Some say freedom is the total free market, not hindered by any rules by a third party.
Others may answer that this is not freedom but slavery and to be free means to be able to not participate in the (labor) market at all.
But what does Freedom mean for you?
Fire fighters fight fires.
Crime fighters fight crimes.
What do freedom fighters fight?
Today I looked at Roger Penrose's three worlds diagram and discovered mathematical platonism
Although I had never read about these things before, they closely relate to my own ideas about the simplicity and beauty of self-consistency conditions that are present in logical structures, i.e, mathematics. The universe is a strictly self-consistent system evolving according to it's own rules which we call laws of physics. These rules are isomorphic to mathematical structures, and all fundamental interactions (forces) are geometrizable, thus mathematics is truly nature's language (not just a human artifact). A modern version of this kind of radical Platonism is Tegmark's Mathematical universe hypothesis
Perhaps existence is possible because perfectly consistent (i.e, without contradictions) logi
Here's my rant for today. A bit philosophical, and perhaps a tad long.
Yes, of course elections are rigged. Just ask Dr. Paul, Bernie Sanders and everybody else that is not owned by the system. Politics are designed to be divisive.
Yes, of course there is voter fraud. Look up voter machine fraud. You can't tell what goes on inside a black box, and we can program the thing to do whatever we want - you can't see in it, how would you ever know? Really, look it up.
Yes, of course there are people who cannot take care of themselves, and we shouldn't be heartless. It's called CHARITY, and it is VOLUNTARY, and it does a lot more good than a thug taking your money and threatening to put you in jail if you do not pay up. That's called coercion.

Some get bad advice and lose tons of money with whatever shitcoin is the
next big thing. So I watch, I get very nice feedback and meet friends as well as the exact opposite I suppose to try to run me off from writing which is my passion. Some stupid advice I've received about life in general, kinda, sorta formatted ;)
Never let them see you vulnerable- Well if part of the human condition is the fact we have holes in our armor so be it, I trust someone who tells it like it is over someone who is always
On every time
Never let them see you afraid, weak- Again, to me this is utter crap, life is hard and it isn't fair and people have choices to lash out and blame everything else or (psst,
It is absolutely necessary for the majority to take over the minority in order to have a peaceful prosperous society. It's also the only way to have a healthy society.
The only reason you are healthy now, is because the minority of cancerous cells in your body are suppressed by your immune system. Every human has on average a couple thousand cancerous cells in him at any given moment, the only reason they haven't spread yet is because you have a healthy immune system that suppresses it. Or in other words the majority is suppressing the cancerous minority.
In society, you have the
In trying to get a plant to produce fruits, I do not speak to it constantly of the need to generate fruits, nor of my need for the fruit. The benefits of the fruit are a by-product of the fruit itself being produced and for the fruit to be produced, the plant has to be in good health.
My communication to the plant therefore has to be towards nurturing it with soil, sunlight and water.
These are the currency of trade that will trigger the appropriate environment for the plant to grow. In return, the plant expresses its healthy state by producing fruits in season and if nurtured appropriately would continue to do so for the lifespan of the plant, provided these things are provided.
We often focus more on our outputs and burden ourselves with expectation of results. But results, like fruits to plants are a produced as a by-product of being nurtured with the
Dear friends! Today is the World Tarot Day!
Unfortunatelly often in the people's minds Tarot cards are associated with a gypsy woman sitting in a tent and predicting a future that can not be changed .
For me, Tarot - is primarily a philosophy, strict and logical system, a textbook of life, simple rules, following which you can make your life easier and brighter.
The Major Arcana describes the life of a person, his evolution. Minor Arkana talks about everyday situations. When they come to our life it gives us a specific kind of energy. You can use this energy to improve your life.
I invite you for follow my publicutions on my husband's blog @torem-di-torem and know more about amazing world of Tarot.
Read my articles concerning education and you will quickly realise two things. I am sceptical of the approach and critical of where it is headed.
I am sceptical because educational systems have not improved considerably in the last 40 years. That seems like a pretty outrageous claim but it seems quite true when you start to look into how much new knowledge is available in psychology and pedagogical understanding, technological support aids and a host of other factors. It still takes twelve odd years with little improvement.
I am critical of where they are headed because it is in the same direction they have always travelled. They aim to create employees in a world where an estimated 70 percent of current jobs will disappear in the next two decades. So, what work will be available for these new graduates?
It is easy to say that new work will open up and that is true. The problem is that the new work must be work that cannot be done by an artificial system or robot but the major
