Dubious Cheer!

We are simple people, making the best of situations and resources. Sometimes we suggest to ourselves that all is well, or will be well. Fingers crossed, hope for the best, and so on😉

Other times, we tend to ignore trends that bother us, till things go seriously wrong.

In our country or another. Consciously or unconsciously, we rationalize that (the problem) is far, can’t relate, didn’t know, etc. Our responses range from cannot do anything about it to online donations.

Our constant striving is to be safe and happy. We can believe that those problems can never happen to us. Till it does.

I believe life happens when we least expect it, and when we feel vulnerable. Then we have two choices: meet the problem head on or shiver ‘n’ shake. At times, denial or cop out. I’ve done all of the above.

Take terrorism. There is no first aid for it. By the time we recognize  the problem and own it as action-worthy, it is already too late. A social cancer, if you will.

When does the problem take root? What all can we do before we feel the terror? Does old logic breed new thought for novel and effective solutions?

Figure out your response strategy to this problem that seems distant and non-relatable. Read a fictional presentation of the pattern of trends in our societies that lead to the crises building UP to terrorism.

Available at AMAZON: “Terror Strikes the HoCleS.” By V Sabharwal. (Sample the chapters first).

Let us join hands and be prepared to break our pattern. Take ownership and act now.

Panacea 4 Terrorism

I believe the solution to this problem will come from where it began. And, it might take a few minds and nations to get together on this to make the solution effective and long-term. Since it is not a military problem, the solution is not solely military either.

The military just offers the tourniquet. Maybe a band-aid.

It is important to understand terrorism because it effects all of us, directly or indirectly. Lets work together on finding the panacea to terrorism. Travel with the searching hearts and minds of Findalot, Knex, and Cynix in

Enlightening Enlightenment.

East Vs. West or West vs. East? Two different views on enlightenment. This is an interesting Rap song about it. Limitations are that its only Chinese Vs. European, but still brings out the difference in how the word enlightenment is understood across the regions.

My view is that if the Enlightened talk about Reason, then should we limit to a region or perspective? Or is it time to move forward together? 🤝One can reasonably  understand how enlightenment is a strength: internal or external. Reason or Illusion🤔

Polynesians, Egyptians, didnt publish claim new.
 
Irish, Romans- musn't they join the sway?
 
As did the natives, cave man, before finding his way.

China is powerful, huge, n cultured, too!
OMG, encroaching in 21st century too?
wants more to increase their big chunkO'land,
Highwaying Pakistan, India dressed in pearly garland.
Generous to nKorea, laughing at bully with nothing,
Keeping Powers drooling over decorative something.
Trade - rich, Base chase, weapons strip-tease,
Tao's heart n soul cannot be at ease!

Russia competes silent in space,
Satellites, Politics, n Digital race.
Most continents face food, health, medical issues,
Still plague our mind and body tissues.
Bamboozling the mysteries, raid secret societies-
Pillaging lands, minds, our crazy histories.
Is that what aspiring super powers do,
I am confoozled about this major to do!

Never Look Back?

I believe we must look ⬅️back at our histories so as to not repeat ancestral mistakes and select value from old books of knowledge to move➡️ forward.

This is a beautiful universal thought that applies to all of us! Different cultures speak about similar thoughts. Relevant in todays times is this one by China, from China, for China.

ReCreate not ReBind!

via Daily Prompt: Recreate

Recreate after royal pillage and war,
the evil is done, has gone far;
Though are we doing any better-
left behind with attitude and letter?

Rebuild after chaotic storm,
nature has proved global warm;
Karma is not a chattering joke,
goes around, returning to poke.

Lift up our struggling brothers,
and honour our nurturing sisters;
Love is a huge all-encompassing word,
Compass* finds four, though jargon is blurred.

 

*
Four types of love: procreate, nurture, country, All-Mighty.
Directions from Compass: North, South, East, West.

Part-ner ship or Life-Jacket on!

Respecting and loving a womans / mans choice who is respecting and loving you back, seems to make sense for all religions and cultures.
The rest, is history😉
Embedded in misstery😳
Digging up herstory📝

All big management experts will tell you that part-ner is one who does his or her part in taking care of a group, family, trade, farm, etc. What is the part and who defines it how? That’s when vocabularies and strategies start needing discussions in classrooms😉

I say, lets do our best of what we are good at and share the necessary jobs. Domination, in simple terms, bossy or bullish words or behaviour only say one thing to me:
“I feel weak. I need help! I want you to do more because I think you are stronger than me. I want you to do it my way, because I only like my way.”

That’s when the person who is being tolerant, smiles, takes a bow/ does a courtesy and says, “Thank you! What may I help you with?”

Then, the choice is yours of how and when to do it. Otherwise, its the next question. Do I have a choice?

There is just mental strength VS. physical strength. More. OR. Less.

More or less, a slight difference in degrees😉 of effective
Partnership, otherwise its a Drowning ship. Life-jackets on!

Thank you for reading my simple definition.

Finding Balance Everyday

WordPress list of etiquette has good intentions and everyone puts in effort to make each other feel great at their work. I’d like to start a tradition which goes by my philosophy of “making a good average every day.” The math goes something like this:
1 good experience + 1 bad experience = An average day overall!

I’ll make my request after sharing this thought below that helps me survive adventures in fleeting moments in childrens’ effort at educa-shunn.

On a regular school day, I’ve learned to rationalize kids behaviours with two constant reminders to myself.
One. “Every student is doing their best” even if it seems to be a frustrating moment for the receiver and the giver of the behaviour.
Two, “Twist the way I perceive the experience, so as to surprise the student.”
Half the possible problems disappear just within these two frameworks. The others, ehm, well need a long talk or consequence.
So Be It.
At the end of the day, one good and one frustrating experience makes a great average. Yay for survival, because in the process, I learned something.

What do you say we try the balancing act with adults here at Thinkinkadia? Every one who is willing to comment or experiment: give one positive and one negative (read: learning opportunity) feedback to make a great average learning experience out of each communication exchange! See how harmless it can be?

I promise to respond Without Un-Following anyone😄! Game for a risk in Traditional ettiquette?

Thank you for visiting my blog! Enjoy this song as we take leave from here🤗  To me, this song talks of a similar balance.

“When Life is at Stake” and “IF”

When Life is at Stake
Your life begins with innocence and love-
Wonder for a human life that charms,
Regard for all who help, heart that warms,
Until one cold day, life gives a shove.

And then you display reactions, turmoil, ill feeling.
You build a hateful purpose, disregard life and human,
Comparisons, unfair, you lash out! Zoom in,
Why do you let anger decide to send lives reeling?

Consequence sends you behind bars straight-
Verdict is your life sentence for man slaughter.
A long wait begins, soul search in quiet water,
family now committed to a bitter social fate.

Time passes: your age, purpose, reasons change;
Calm creeps in, regrets lead to insight and appeals.
“You’re not alone” whisper friends at meals;
Now wishing regard for a human, this social derange!

Too late to change! Wallow in life’s grime!
Date is fixed. Letters, cards, books arrive in-
Family trying to save your soul in heaven!
When on earth, you didn’t let them help it shine.

Times change, choice still, to still life, is a silent Syringe.
Life’s over, the sentence, too. You’ve come to terms,
Forgiveness to self. Document read, State seal firms:
“Name, list of crimes, and the Jury’s Verdict.” You don’t cringe.
R.I.P.

IF

If you had Survived circumstances beyond your control,
If you had Distant memories of a hurt,
If you had Trace of a crime in your career,
If you had reflections, a Portion of which was regret,
If you had Impressions, that you can make things better,
If you were given one golden chance, a prisoner Reprieved,
Suddenly, you have Life!

I ask you, what matters:
Living?
Living well?
Living free?
Loving living?
I wonder, what will You choose?

P. S. The same kind of work in Uniform, gives All of the above choices.
