Recycling – Blog No. 64

trash

A trash can is filled with infinite possibilities.  It is fortunate for infinite possibilities that most – in fact, virtually all – people assume that trash cans are filled with rubbish.  They are not only keen to add their own shame, their own shit and their myriad fateful secrets slyly to the mix that has already been consigned to the dustbins of history, but they are also keen to deny these, their contributions.  It is a pity for these people.  Living in denial is no way to live.

When you understand discernment and you have developed an idea of how it is to be enterprising, you become capable of such things as making a golden goose from the shreds of yesterday’s feathers.  You just have to know how to piece a goose together.  That is possible when you have every tool at your fingertips – a privilege granted by the facility – or faculties, if you like – that one finds in dustbins when one takes the time to sift through the miles and miles of rotting refuse.  When you are prepared to get your hands dirty, you get to look at what ‘civilisation’ has tossed away and you get to know how much goodness – greatness – therein lies.  You also get to understand what a world of deceit this planet actually is.  You can choose to let that reality get you down, or you can use what is left inside of you to rebuild yourself – if there is anything left now that you know your ‘civilised minds’ have thrown away everything worthwhile of yours’ that ever was.

I suspect that the best place to have been during these sleazy days and ages, is in the dustbin.  That is where absolutely everything of consequence is.  Lucky for the dustbin.  It has the capacity, the facility, the faculties and the inclination to use every wonder it has discovered within itself to build a brand new something and leave this planet Earth and its people to mend itself, themselves.  If they do not have the tools to do so – that is unfortunate.  They will have to forge them from flint and sticks.

Productivity – Blog No. 82

productivity_analysts_sjpg1330When are you most productive?  When you are doing something you like, or when a whip is at your back.  Both methods work.  For some, deadlines motivate.  The chase to the end, motivates.  For others, the push is in an obligation, a feeling of being responsible.  Why is it that some people feel the need to do something about the state of this planet and others will not be bothered?  It is time to kick these sleeping people out of their beds.  I am tired of hearing the old story that it is no one’s job to bring the humans along, kicking and screaming.  That it is no one’s job to force them to wake up and take stock of where they are so they can decide where they want to be.  Who made up that story?  The same people who sit on the sidelines and watch this world implode?  Too bad for the silent fence-sitters.  The story has changed.

You are productive when you are driven, inspired.  If you lack inspiration, what can you do?  You can search for new experiences.  If you are averse to new experiences you must ask yourself why.  What is this need to live a traditional life?  Why are there not more pioneers?  Life is a construct.  Construct a model that works.  Why are there inflexible missionaries striding around making noise about choices?  Just because another’s choice is not yours, you cannot condemn it.  Do not hide behind God and shout about what is not right in his eyes when you have no idea what he likes and what he doesn’t.  When last did he pass comment on the way humans behave?  Does he even care?  The problem is that people are still whispering the same Hail Mary the priests were prescribing last century.  It works no better now than it did then.

Be productive in your thinking.  There is no point dreaming up doom and gloom for yourself.  Take your thoughts and modify them to include new possibilities that will improve your life.  Know that a productive life is a life well-lived.  However you choose to live well, is up to you.
