The implications of conditions surrounding each of our upbringing is telling! This perception is biased through the repeated confrontation aspects of our human endeavours overriding our collaborative aspects.

 

Calamitous uprisings promote extortion as an anomaly which keep options of confrontation and collaboration ongoing adversarial concerns.

 

Nonetheless, there is a greater probability of benefitting from the collaborative realm. That of having positive outcomes for all concerned which would eventually eradicate the extortion anomaly.

 

How this would come about depends us on our exercising collaborative aspects of which we are capable albeit neither commanded nor combative. A purely voluntary and selfless act, also of which we are capable.

 

Question is, will we?

Dundas Urban Exchange

 

One may be forgiven wondering if this generation has a sporting engagement-with-STDs which would affect society’s ‘food-chain’ more than realized. This was I devised from what I overheard between one youth shouting to another: “Hey, make sure you go get yourself checked out at the clinic!”, whereupon the other lad responded casually, “Yea, I’ll go tomorrow.”

 

Unbeknownst to many, this flies under the radar until the possibility/probability of resurfacing with untoward consequences, which has been shown in other media creations, when an errant spouse is exposed to an agent that brings dire consequences into a family and social circle.

 

When there are outbreaks, unless it is calamitous, the numbers affected may only make it to medical journals for future references. Better still, this invasion may flow undetected because it brings with it an immune boost where none’s the wiser save a few distributing agents.

 

All this I devised from walking in-between an exchange between two youths on a sunny summer afternoon in Dundas Square.

DELUSIONAL ILLUSIONS

 

These days it’s all about the wrapping, while the content of the package is an considered inconsequential complement insofar that the intended outward appearance is bait for the unwary and gullible, often labelled naive and/or stupid.

 

Some outgrow being ‘naive’, trusting/having faith in others’ developing filters through which a selection of worthiness is ascertained. It is a skillset I never learned void of role-models and/or knowledgeable agents in my life. Learning depended on observation with only my own mind to catalogue and categorize as I grew. The life many are dealt.

BEING CONTEMPLATIVE

16/09/2017

 (A Spiritual Path)

 

Ask yourself, if you know the purpose of mourning the passages of others in Life, given the grand scheme of things?

 

Do we mourn to appease ourselves solely on the emotional level, guilt aside? Allow me to offer this option which may, or may not gain your consideration. I propose that we mourn being left behind, intuiting actually where the dearly departed has gone, leaving us to continue the struggles that accompany being alive.

 

The departed, regardless of their route during this mortal coil, has completed whatever was her/his purpose unbeknownst to them and their relations near and afar. Whatever/however their cause/vehicle of transport out, we mourn losing them on our journey here feeling various levels of depravation. We do intuitively know to where their departure leads.

 

We are not alone. Most simply ‘trust’, what some call ‘having faith’ but many unknowingly.

CATCH ‘n RELEASE

12/09/2017

Driving home after a visit with my mother, my route traversed a byway passing a resident of an 80’s era acquaintance. We had a falling out after he took advantage of me during that era. He hoodwinked me to the tune of $260 one afternoon when I happened upon him while withdrawing funds at an ATM.

 

Our cordial greeting took an unexpected detour duping me with a needy plea. I was in one of my more suggestible moments that sometimes synchronize with needy goings on, happening upon an agent of the soft con who easily recognizes timely vulnerabilities in others.

 

I carried a self-loathing from that incident for 30yrs, ever contemptuous of his actions that day. Similar has happened to me since, always at the most inopportune opportune times.

 

This drive-by occasion took me where he had lived, and I experienced a most fortunate, ‘aha’ moment. An involuntary feeling of elation, releasing the anger, hurt and self-loathing that had weighed me down for so long.

 

My remaining drive contained a gifted lighter feel; an unexpected mind/body memory experience laid to rest, an unease instantly an indescribable ease.

I’ve fallen off the wagon, and the horse drawing it simply kept going.

 

It has long gone, leaving/making me to walk the rest of my Way home…

The longer I am alive, the harder it is ‘being’ alive.   Longevity, a blessing and a curse objectively speaking, especially with today’s goings on.

 

Have the plethora of distractions kept you sufficiently busy to not notice the where/how of your doings/goings?

This is for all the lonely people, via ‘Eleanor Rigby’: Angels -or- Demons, which comes out in the dead of night, or is there a party going on throughout your system?          

 

 

UNCERTAIN -and- UNKNOWN

 

When you consider the Road to Enlightenment, do your expectations accommodate this notion, (Thai Monk in northern Bangkok awaiting donations), in one form or another?

 

9. Road to Enlightenment

 

The varying outcries through the years seldom accommodate what is noted in, LynchingInAmerica.eji.org, underlying there is a road to reconciling the past of a damaged nation!

 

Assumptions Negative occurred when a photo of Samuel L. Jackson and Magic Johnson, seated on a park bench in Italy beside a Louis Vuitton bag creating a (Stereotypical) backlash. Many Italians took to angrily voicing their outrage about African migrants misusing state subsidies to buy luxury goods.

 

Is there an obligation to minimizing misinformation/disinformation outlets such as Breitbart News London, which used a 2014 photo of a German soccer star on a jet-ski, with a headline about a Crack Gang moving drugs, only to apologize after (Careless Reporting) when damage to reputation and lifestyle had already been felt!?

 

How do you not consider nursing home residents, such as in Dickinson, Texas, La Vita Bella, waiting waist-deep in water, awaiting rescue not to be (Careless Regard)?

This has been the Summer of the Gun in the Ukraine, as parents are sending their children to paramilitary camp in preparation for the 3rd year of ongoing eastern conflicts, readying them to fight instead of learning arts ’n crafts in summer camps. A necessary preparation over fears of what lies ahead, and/or (Lost Youth)!?

 

What is the fundamental concern of the Toronto District Catholic School Board; when in 2015, a schoolyard prank resulted in a broken arm of a student and a $600K lawsuit? The TDCSB issued a warning to parents on the need to review personal insurance policies coverage for possible future litigations regarding such antics!? Specifics being damned! Are we in the process of eliminating normal, childhood boisterous play linking them to (Lord of the Flies?) deviant behaviour requiring litigious processing!?
