Honouring the Greats: Rules of the Mind – Part Two — For a lighter, brighter life

Quote

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” Albert Einstein, physicist and ‘most famous scientist in history’ Change. We all want the power to change ourselves for the better, but why is that change so elusive? Lasting change needs our thinking mind and emotional mind working together. Our emotional mind lives in the subconscious […]

Seeking Perfection

She has shoes with holes, it’s raining, the toes squelch, she can hear the noise, she walks even slower, she is embarrassed, doesn’t want her friends to know. A dry table, a place to sit, a cup of tea or coffee, a few minutes to sip,

to rest, to feel normal, is like seeking perfection. Her home is now a dorm, her needs are met, you could call her lucky, her doctor tells her she is all right. A little mental instability, it spiraled, she lost control in a rage, picked up a bottle, lost her home, an apartment, when they sent her to jail. Lucky girl, it was one of those modern facilities; a case of a little business, when the Government farmed out the prison service, how you farm out care, is one of those mysteries, in a world seeking perfection. $$$$

Solomon read the old story tellers lament; the lack of literacy, and the inherent problems that it causes, and how its’ revealed in the prison population. No one cares said the old sage, it’s been like this for ages and gets worse as time lengthens. So many worry about the perfect smile, are the teeth straight, how can I get my lips to pout, do you think it would be better with highlights, the hair, do I really need a second face lift; choices.

It’s how you spend your time; seeking perfection, its’ the eye of the worrier, amen.

Being Me

How hard it is, to reach to a friend, the pride or the feeling, what will they want, the compassion you couldn’t shut up about, the reasons you were friends, what were they, what had you in common in the first place. In the neighborhood, your short, it’s not cash rich, there are ways, and no shortage of opportunities if you are willing to take a risk. Solomon sighed, how the demons sit like snakes, waiting for their opportunity.

The relationship breaks down, its’ unthinkable, the allegations fly, the hatred comes to the top, you dumped me, what, you never had time, you were too busy, you were more interested in your phone, you never complained when I sent you stuff, then the memory kicks into gear, how can I hurt you; the deviousness of the mind, it goes to the worst source of hurt, all over a few words; I am seeing someone else.

We are all perfect in good weather, but who are we when we struggle. Solomon wondered how difficult it was, in this modern world, when relationships crack up, things go to the dump. You will get over it, it’s a learning step ,its’ not your life. No wonder Jesus pushed the forgiveness button; it ended hostility between souls and helped everyone rise, what could be simpler, no aggro, no bad feelings, you resurface, and you continue to swim, amen.
