Follow Your Bliss

We are to generate bliss and follow it.
I am convinced of this...
Ignorance isn't bliss, knowledge is...
If you can look at this,
Then cease to believe in lies...

Conformity may seem to be the way,
But it may cause truth to be denied...
Demanding of proof is a way to negate
What you understand not,
Nor may resonate with...


  • And in this community, as in all others, the Golden Rule still applies – we must be act toward other nations as we would have them act towards America. ~ Adam Schiff

Human Kind

Please forgive me, this overwhelm
Causes me question myself, as well.
I know it feels you can't win, for losing.
The loose tongue slanders, helping those
Who have only chosen to oppose...
Defenses grow stronger with apprehension.
Why is the humble servant so oppressed?
How could paradise become so distressed?
Can we divine the solution at this pace?
If we cannot bear any guilt or shame, then,
Forgiveness, again, will be out of reach...
Are we now willing to work out anything
Conceptually more than mere analyzing?

A Lakota Indian proverb has it, “Never criticize someone else unless you walk a mile in his moccasins.” 


1. Convey to the other person that he is understood.
2. Identify a possible area in which the other person may have a valid point or even a superior position.
3. Find shared moral qualities (honesty, integrity, and good will) and aspirations to help in discovering a mutually acceptable solution.

According to specialists in negotiation, the first point consists of seeing the expressed idea and attitude from the other person's point of view—to sense how it feels to him and to achieve his frame of reference regarding the idea he discusses. "Developing empathy" is another way to state this idea, which is getting the feel of walking in someone else's shoes. A popular Lakota proverb reads, "Never criticize someone else unless you walk a mile in his moccasins."

Right Thought

I'm not demanding to change your mind
Have your free will and I will have mine
By virtue of being human we respect
Each the other's mind
Not drawing conclusions
May express our opinions
But we must only be kind
Ego might try to tell you
Another is as if blind
And even what they're thinking about
Overcome evil with goodness
Give the benefit of the doubt
Do not force another to change
Try to remember not to call them liar
Deny insult or berate
To mock or to pretend to condescend
Make a spectacle or exaggerate
We cannot call another fool
Or burden them with ridicule
Where the spirit is strong
It is known when something's wrong
We answer not to man
You can't please everyone
Repent and go on to sing a new song
Like children all of us in awe
Together gazing at the stars
Praying for the end of wars

The basis of all animal rights should be the Golden Rule: we should treat them as we would wish them to treat us, were any other species in our dominant position. ~ Christine Stevens


Please enable me as an instrument
For saving forests creatures oceans
I am wanting to be a healing servant
Overcoming the power of money here
And rendering it obsolete everywhere
Earth creatures need some paradise
In a grassroots way I offer advice
Subsistence sustenance is the most
Crucial matter to every human host
