Part 1 – “Mind the Programming” Loophole

Life is more similar to a computer program than many of us tend to think. We make the program what it is, and the program makes us what it is.  Surround ourselves with stimulus which pique our interest. We surround ourselves with  people which are “of like mind”.  We mold them, and they mold us.

Help Wanted! For Giving Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not easy – but it is MUCH easier when first asked for it. Forgiving someone after being asked for it is important – but it still leaves room for personal validation of our egos to say “see, I was right after all, so now that you acknowledge it, okay – I forgive you.”

Help Wanted! If you were hurt long ago in the past, or in a small way today, close your eyes, take a deep breath, breathe out slowly and forgive the individual by name (and/or by face).  The world is more connected than we think.  There is more power to forgiveness, especially when the individuals ‘know not what they do’.

Few gifts worth giving rival proactive forgiveness — it will make the forgiven, the forgiver, and the world, better.

Help Wanted! A Turn for the Better

Traffic… There are few opportunities to exhibit a SIMPLE SELFLESS ACT more timely than on your morning or evening drive!  Each individual is likely “rushing to get somewhere” – yet – most of us fail to recognize the fact that everyone else is in the same exact boat! 

Help Wanted!  When traffic is backed up – and you see someone trying to take a “left turn” onto a busy street – take a moment to let them in if you can.  We’ve all had someone go out of their way to do it for us – more often, everyone ignores us – which means we likely tend to ignore them when the shoe is on the other foot.

Let someone in – give a stranger ‘the unexpected’ help that we would not expect but at the same time truly appreciate. Let a stranger take a left turn, and help the world take a turn for the better!

“Increase Memory & Brain Power” Loophole

Do we REALLY Only use 10-20% of our Brain?

While there is A LOT of truth to the fact we under-utilize our brain power – I believe this oft talked about ‘concept’ leads most of us to a misguided and/or short-cited conclusion.

“Life on the Line” Loophole

The “What is the Meaning of Life?” Loophole

This loophole is not about answering that question – it is about ‘reminding’ myself an others that there are many tools & vehicles that can help facilitate “understanding”.  One of few tools we use effectively is language — but there is a higher level of learning, and even more effective too, that predated modern language, and that concept is the foundation for what language was built upon.

The usage of “architypes” has been underutilized for several millennium.  We’ve all heard the phrase “A PICTURE SPEAKS A THOUSAND WORDS”. In fact, written language undermines that very important truth.   It is more than a “picture of people” (smiles, body language, environment, distance, time, location). There are paintings and pieces of art that seemingly ‘never out date themselves’, that inspire, and mean things to us at a level deeper than we instinctively reflect upon.

“Secret to Success” Loophole

What is the Secret to Success?

Easy one! The secret to success is as simple as…

…understanding that “the secret” is that you SHOULD NOT be seeking this answer through a google search – or through the book – OR through this blog.  The answer you will find in any one of those places is at best, subjective – and at worst, constraining, misinformed and outright manipulative! 

I realize, and embrace, the ‘hypocrisy’ of providing an answer to a question via a vehicle (this blog) that I said should not be the source —- the point is, the best I can do is remind myself, and everyone, that “Success” is a very ambiguous term which is defined by sheer subjectivity.

All I can share is what I consider the “PATH”… which will be as pure/objective as I can keep it!

“What is That?” – Moment of Creation

How would you describe life from beginning to end?  

Tying the left-brained scientific concepts to right-brained creative writing together isn’t always easy – but below is my attempt!  My 1-year old son always asks “What’s That?” and below is my specific response to a very general question! 

THiNK about it…. there’s something for most readers here. 😉

“What is That?” …The moment of creation….

in the beginning… was a moment of light;
the motion of it created the notion of time.
which co-created space, time needed to fly;
its why every hello has to end with goodbye.
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
light created dark, the two points made a line;
and that created sides, comprised of day & night,
yin & yang, up & down; right & left, wrong & right
good & bad, way back when it was still black & white
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
as opposites attracted, the attraction took flight,
but since they were polar, the connection made fight;
causing some friction; effectively spite
but also a force that magnetically unites
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
as the particles got cold, they grouped together tight;
once they all had slowed, we saw mass at first sight.
now see a new perspective in each blink of an eye;
its mind over matter cuz matter’s a matter of mind!
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
matter of fact…. if we stop to think twice;
it’s statistically proven that it’s better to be nice!
that light survived ‘n it shines even more bright;
for that moment gave birth to more moments of life!
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
son…from that moment on, creation went viral
we needed to be down to conceive an upward spiral!
take two points on any line, subdivided it a while;
as the infinite children each have another child.
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
things come in full circle, its the lesson in life
and a smile can outrival the full expression of pi
so see the light, embrace the love, live beyond time
then find Eve in the atom and Adam in the sky
-+-+-   -+-  -+ – – i – – +-  -+-   -+-+-
as pieces of the whole, we’re all connected but we’re free;
what makes us all the same, makes us equally unique.
so please be yourself, son… it’s a real easy feat;
by just doing your part, you’re making us complete!
