benefits of quick judgment

I have observed since my youth that those overtly or covertly quick to exercise judgment seek for themselves or those they love gain and status at the expense of those they judge.

our local world

The subtleties of life and what we take for granted are one and the same. We are masters in the subtleties within our own environment and our powers reside in what we take for granted.

need in love

Need in love is deficiency sometimes demanding, sometimes commanding, attention. To true love's sorrow, it seeks for itself, when love's premise is to mutually gain, give and share.

get out

If remaining in unhappiness to receive an answer that never comes to 'Why?', grasp the beginning of your quest as the only answer that matters: 'It's not right'.

expectations' force

People's expectations have a greater force in their lives than the power to choose. Choice tends to be exclusively contingent on expectation.

slipping into trouble

Tinkering trifles
Travailing trites
Trafficking troubles
Then tragedy strikes

The young woman suddenly said in a tone of emphatic disgust, 'Words mean nothing.' The old gentleman looked across her face, then into her eyes compassionately, and replied with calm certainty, 'Words are deeds that dismay or inspire. Words are acts that kindly touch or rudely slap.'

belief is not a truth

Belief is not a truth.

Belief is the commitment to and investment in a proposition that may or may not be true.

the whole is in the parts

She looked me studiously in the eyes and asked, "Is the sum greater than the whole?" Caught off guard by the sudden turn in our conversation, I replied with a question. "What flies, the feathers or the bird?" She mused for a second, faintly laughed, then leaned forward and said with a smile, "The feathers are only one portion of all that makes a bird." Smiling back, I asked, "What flies, all that makes a bird or the bird?"

our lease on life

We are all tenants with a lease. Some of us, however, behave like we are the landlord, others like there is no lease at all.

associates and well-wishers

Lies have many more associates in this world than truth. Truth, however, has many more well-wishers.

a choice before you go

An angel suddenly appeared to a man in the middle of the night and declared, "Death is immanent. Choose now before you die: repent or forgive." Gripped with astonishment then slowly resigned to an inevitable fate, the man considered his common humanity and replied to the angel, "I forgive all who sinned against me." "Well chosen," replied the angel, "for there is repentance in it."

We are each a chalice of life choosing the drink we cup.

Truth is a discreet, differentiated recognition of reality which is validated by the retention of its identity in spit of perspectives. Truth is predicateless, yet all things and their predicates can be identified with truth.

leaving the rude in its own company

The rude will press till you break with frustration or anger; let them fail and see the power you have in the best you are without them. Know your memories, and remember someone or something that is worthy of your attention for the moment. With equinimity, smile pleasantly - and, if necessary, seize or make an opportunity - and take your leave. Note the best of what may be bad and move on to other company.

something is nothing unless it embraces what embraces it and becomes.

what remains

Pity and purge desires that turn into frustrated needs, and be content with what gives, sustains, and maintains life from a decree that cannot be altered by reason, wish, magic, delusion or rebellion. Look! See! What remains will be recognized as blessing's source and its continual endowment upon you now.

dignity and nobleness

Being near dignity and nobleness is not the same as possessing them. Proximity and frequency of contact alone do not acquire their attributes. Whatever continual contact the King's chamber-pot has to the King, it remains a chamber-pot.

Be sparse with advice; too freely given, it's seen as opinion's counterfeit. The foolish are often advised best by their own misfortune and the intelligent will prudently seek it out for sound planning or when pressed by exigency.

unconditional love

Unconditional love is absence of self and self's advantages, yet always virtue's illumination.

structured idiocy

Deductive logic is structured idiocy if its product is not a hypothesis for verification.
