Negative emotion is a good thing! It helps you to recognize what you do want! Think about it. In this time and space reality, called life, there are basically two emotions, The good feeling emotions like: happy, euforic, bliss, clear etc. and the bad feeling emotions like: anger, hate, doubt, sadness and no self eSTEEM etc. These emotions help us to recognize what we desire, and how close we are to our prefered manifestation of the desire. I believe that we can Be, Do or Have anything we desire, but first we have to become a match to our desire.
When you know a little bit what you don't want, you know a little bit what you do want. And when you really, really know what you do not want, you really, really know what you do want.
Frith itself is a word used to define the relationship of close family and how their lives are all a part of a larger family energy. Close kin are our connection to the past, support for the present, and inspiration for the future. In past times, this connection between family members was the core relationship they would hold for their entire lives and was much stronger than it is in current western culture.
A Circle of Frith could be thought of as one's relationship with the outside world. A person's core circle would be husband/wife & son/daughter. In past times and in my own mind, this holds true today as well. When you have a close friend going through a hard time, how often can you also feel their pain? When they do something amazing, how happy does that also make you feel? This is an example of emotional energy coming into your own physical mind from a Circle of Frith. Your own emotional energy can also be transmitted this way

For all who want to know what Social Darwinism is, just watch this lecture. Be aware it is from Columbia University which is "big academia" so if you prefer not to go that route due to distrust then feel free to Google the term "Social Darwinism".

Elephant is known to be, the largest land animal. The strength of of the adult elephant is very great. They were used for resocks freight. When the baby elephant accustom to rope tethering him to a tree, he does not like, and a baby elephant directs all its efforts to ensure that free themselves. He is still small, and the rope is stronger for all his efforts. The animal gets used to the rope and to their environment.
As time goes by, he becomes an adult, and large. Now it is nothing to be able to keep. However, the animal is tied same a rope , because an adult elephant no longer checks the strength of the rope.

If you have been following my blog posts over the last 6 months, it should come as no surprise that I enjoy everything about food. It's a substance that is multi-faceted and fundamentally, is a necessity of healthful living on this planet.
(Mandarin oranges from Spain.)
I am keenly interested in understanding how it's grown, produced, prepared, presented, shared and consumed.
As humans, we eat to live and we live to eat. Many would argue, that from a health perspective, we should only be concerned with eating to sustain the health of our bodies. I would like to suggest that the power found in the food we ingest, is boosted when it's been prepared with positive intention and the ingestion of it, is shared in a social setting that is content.

This recent quarrel in trending, hot and even new posts over voting, flagging and reputation scores reminded me of my Master Thesis in philosophy titled 'Karl Popper And John Rawls: Open Society And Just Society'. I feel I wrote it so long ago, in 2012, and I'm happy I have the chance to present at least a part of it.
The title refers to the ideal society as these philosophers imagined it. Both were vehement liberals and would feel right at home on Steemit. After all, without going into details of their respective philosophies, Steemit is open to all and we all want it to be as just as possible. I am excited to see how justice here gets developed in the future.

Roots break rock in search of water, animals adapt as both predator and prey for survival and we do all we can to build, maintain and pass on what we have before we take our last breath, speak our last word and think our last thought. Life can be complicated and a constant struggle to create stability in a universe possessing a singular interest of constant change. What we build is open to destruction, the knowledge we now possess becomes ignorance tomorrow and that which we believe to be solid can be torn away, smashed and razed to the ground. In this instant we are gone, the shards of who we were, shattered at the foot of where we once stood.
Broken and disorientated, we stare at what was until moments ago, our life. Here an opportunity has arisen that is greater than when we opened our eyes for the first time. This is not an end, but a beginning. Like cold water splashed on a sleepy face, we are now awake
What is a
gut feeling? It's a feeling in the pit of your stomach in response to a situation or event. Often it's used as a divination tool to help with decision making. If there is no feeling it's a green light and if you have that foreboding feeling it means stop. But how do we trust it? How do we know if it's the right thing to listen to?
At one time in my life I went camping. I can't say that I would want to sleep on the ground again but my boys were little at the time and I wanted them to have that experience. It was the May long weekend and we were off to Penticton for a ball hockey tournament; some friends of mine were playing and we were groupies for the team. Penticton is an 8 hour drive from Calgary and we left late friday afternoon. We finally arrived in Penticton at 10 pm, exhausted, but knew we needed to set up the tent. My boys were tire
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

The most significant events and processes have both positive and negative consequences. We can call change in different ways, but it is already clear: the world will never be the same as he was.
One of the most common of processes that affects on us in a special way, has the name " re-evaluation of values". The reason for it is that in a world where man has become the supreme value, there is no system of criteria of right and wrong (of good and evil). Everything is considered relative.
One example of a re-evaluation of values in the modern world is understatement as honor and honesty, sincerity and compassion, courage and kindness, a place which increasingly take
You only live once.
I read sauravrungta's post including that saying last night and I can relate to it totally. I like to question a lot of things though. I'm curious like that. I thought about the reason why people say it, and clearly it's a realization and inspirational thought to help kick us into gear and live life to the fullest with what precious time we have left. That's my natural emotional reaction to it... But then I thought about those that believe in an afterlife - many people do.
So my question is, if you think you live twice does that make this life feel less precious? If not, why does Yolo signify anything?
The thing that keeps me going is uncertainty and the unknown. I think that's exciting and I think it's good to be open minded for things we can't fully explain. I don't know if we'll only live once, twice or infinite times. It's even theoretically possible that this could all be a simulation, as many have stated. Maybe one day we'll be able to live fore
