#Conform #Habit: 2015-09-30

Habit is conformity.
Everyone conforms and then calls it natural or normal.
Everyone conforms and then justifies and rationalizes their conformity.
You conform to your persistent attitudes; therefore, choose your attitudes wisely.

Conforming is not the problem, what you conform to is either the problem or the solution.

#Confidence #Failure: 2015-09-29

Confidence in God, not confidence in self.
Confidence in thinking is confidence in failure.
Confidence in habit is rational but confidence in self is irrational.
Confidence that you are tuned into a channel will help you to stay on that channel but not to do what that channel does through you.

Confidence in a good channel will help you to stay hosting that channel, and confidence in your self will cause you to lose the signal from that channel.

#Receive #Create: 2015-09-28

Focus on something to receive it, not to create it.
Think about something to pray for it, not to create it.
Attract something into your life in order to be a host for it, not the creator of it.
Request something with your whole heart, soul, and mind so that you might share it, not in order to feed your spiritual ego by believing you thereby created it.

Magic is thinking that you cause and create something whereas prayer is thinking that you request and receive something, both produce results, but one serves spiritual ego and the other serves the virtue of humility.

#Compliment #Encourage: 2015-09-27

Compliments can feed ego or fortify virtue.
Compliment behaviors, not people being some thing.
Compliment and thank often, but focus your compliments and thanks on actions, not persons.
Compliment to encourage, promote, and reinforce compassion, consideration, good manners, and kindness.

Compliment whenever you think too without hesitation, because such a communication has the power to uplift a person for an entire day.

#Complain #Solution: 2015-09-26

Complaining that is just whining is not winning.
Complaining can be helpful when done at the right time and place with the right attitude and advice.
Complaining without offering a solution is like asking for help without telling anyone what you need help with.
Complaining for those who cannot complain for or defend themselves is an obligation for those who have power and authority.

Complaining is a skill that few learn how to effectively master despite society needing to hear complaints about its abuses and injustices.

#Thinking #Banal: 2015-09-25

Without editing it first, you would not publish your adult mind’s daily thinking on a blog, podcast, or TV show, because no one would be interested in such banality.
How did your adult mind develop so that it is identified with and addicted to its own gibberish?
Why does your adult mind take its own drivel seriously but despises hearing others share their drivel?
How is it that even the drab drivel you hear in TV dialogue is better that listening to your own self-talk?

One the one hand, you take the noises in your mind too seriously, but on the other hand, you seek to avoid and escape those noises through addiction, busyness, compulsion, entertainment, stimulation, and running to and fro.

#Community #Disintegration: 2015-09-24

#Community #Disintegration: 2015-09-24
Community is that which capitalism works to make obsolete.
Community is what government desires to be but only destroys.
Community is a threat to governments, because a community is its own government.
Community is a threat to economic systems such as capitalism, because a community is its own economic system.

Community is what technology and so-called Western civilization destroys through the separation of education, work, and living processes, which causes ever more fragmentation and disintegration of the structures and practices of a community and replaces them with busyness and stimulation seeking.

Committees lead by dumbing down.
Committees are what you wish upon your enemies.
Committees are what turn brilliant startups into boring corporations.
Committees are how you reduce or destroy the creativity and elegance of anything.

Committees are how you reduce the thinking of everyone to the lowest common denominator.

#College #Conditioning: 2015-09-22

College is where you go to get a degree saying you can do what you have never done.
College is the place you go to get a degree that says you are conditioned enough to become a willing corporate slave.
College is the place you go to get a degree so that people will believe you can do what you have never done and hire you to do it.
College is the place to complete your conditioning by learning to write papers that agree with the professors in order to earn good grades.

College is the place you go to prove that you will follow authority, jump through hoops, and do stupid tasks without question or revolt in order to please those in power.

#Civilization #Virtue: 2015-09-20

Civilization is crushed by capitalism.
Civilization is neither technology nor roads, but kindness and compassion.
Civilization is not measured by its monuments to itself, but by its children’s character.
Civilization is claimed by the uncivilized while they spread their contempt for those they plunder.

Civilization is not piling rocks upon rocks to produce buildings, but piling virtues upon virtues to produce citizens.

#City #Car: 2015-09-19

Cities without excellent public transportation are just clogs that chafe with combative cars.
Cities built for bicycles are cities built for convenience, but cities built for cars are cities built for conflict.
Cities can offer more culture and opportunity or more crime and obstacles depending on whether the city is managed for people or profit.
Cities can be answers or problems depending on if the interests of corporations or the interests of people determine the nature and goals of the city.

Cities designed for and created by everybody offer something for everybody, but cities designed for and created by the elite offer something for the real nobodies.

#Movies #Promote: 2015-09-18

Movies have always promoted points of view through story and script.
Movies are rarely able to share experiences without covert or overt attempts at persuasion.
Movies can provide exposure to different experiences, ideas, and worlds that you might never otherwise encounter.
Movies can promote empathy, understanding, and the opportunity to identify with your universal nature instead of your petty, private ego.

Movies can be used to enter a witness state of consciousness whereby you see your human nature and self in every role and in every person in the movie.

#Character #Remains: 2015-09-17

Character is what remains when all else has been lost.
Character is what you won’t sacrifice for fame or fortune.
Character is what remains under extreme stress or duress.
Character is sometimes no more than the habits that persist throughout a life.

Character is the values and ideals that you won’t go against even at the cost of your life.

#Inner #Thought: 2015-09-16

Is the inner speaker only thought, only an idea that claims it is speaking?
Is the inner speaker only a problem when it becomes thought based?
Is the inner speaker only a problem when it becomes self-images and self-concepts?
Is the inner speaker only a problem when it becomes your ego through your identification with thought?

Is it possible to separate and detach your inner speaking or voices from your identity, images, things, thoughts, and all forms?

#Speaker #Listener: 2015-09-15

Who is the speaker in your head and who is the listener?
Why do you assume you are the speaker and not the listener?
Can there be more than one speaker or listener in your head?

What is your role in relationship to the speaker in your head?

Variation and vacillation are often called change.
Divergence and difference are often called change.
Fluctuation and fickleness are often called change.

#Walmart #Corporation: 2015-09-10

Foolish and narrow-minded corporations like Walmart cannot comprehend that taking care of their employees is taking care of their customers.
Barbaric and backward corporations like Walmart cannot comprehend that taking care of local markets and providers is taking care of their customers.
Primitive and savage corporations like Walmart cannot comprehend that taking care of their community and local charities is taking care of their customers.
Ignorant and irresponsible corporations like Walmart cannot comprehend that taking care of the environment and practicing sustainable processes and procedures is taking care of their customers.

Unlike Walmart, intelligent and responsible for-profit corporations like New Seasons seek to prove their intelligence by qualifying to call themselves a Benefit Corporation or a B-corporation (basically the opposite of Walmart).

Tragedies will come, let the surprise be in how well you respond to them.
Sufferings will come, let the surprise be in how well you accept, cope, and problem solve them.
Sufferings will come, let your response be to use your suffering for spiritual surrender.
Tragedies will come, let your response be to fix them now and to prevent them in the future.

Rise above reaction and use the power of choice to respond well to tragedies and sufferings, and you become an example to the world.

You play god inventing others as your thoughts and things.
You play god inventing your self as your thoughts and things.
You play god making others out of your self-images and self-concepts.
You play god making your self out of the self-images and self-concepts that you know.

Your Frankenstein creations never see the light of day but roam your darkness battling each other for the dominant roles in your fantasy.

#Body #Self: 2015-09-03

If your body was your self, then you would not be able to detach from the experiences of your body.
If your body was your self, then you would not be able to think or feel without your body being directly involved.
If your body was your self, then you would not have a second full set of inner senses but only your body’s senses.
If your body was your self, then you would not have the separate space and place inside your body that is your self.

If your body was your self, then you would not be able to have the inner world and life that your spiritual body enjoys.

#Mental #Health: 2015-09-02

Yes, other people’s negative attitudes do impact you negatively; therefore, you must respond with a positive attitude to improve the situation else leave it.
Yes, other people’s negative behaviors do impact you negatively; therefore, you must respond with positive behaviors to improve the situation else leave it.
Yes, your negative behaviors and attitudes do impact you negatively; therefore, you must respond with positive behaviors and attitudes to improve the situation since you cannot leave yourself.
Understand that mental health is like physical health, if things go wrong, then we apply more prescriptions, medicine, and care, not less.

Understand that mental health is like physical health, if things go wrong, then we do not punish or torture to make better; rather, we comfort, soothe, encourage, teach, improve skills, accept, adapt, adjust, and accommodate to make better.

#Payoffs #Rewards: 2015-09-01

I know something in the past must not exist; therefore, I can feel pride in the power of destroying images and concepts of it.
I know something in the present must not exist; therefore, I can feel pride in the power of destroying images and concepts of it.
I know something in the future must not exist; therefore, I can feel pride in the power of destroying images and concepts of it.
Are the negative attitudes, emotions, and stressors that such thinking brings worth the ego payoffs?

Is there a better way to spend the time and energy of my heart, soul, and mind than to waste them on these delusions and illusions?
