ProtectIt is easy to believe we do not need protecting, we would be wrong. It is our minds which need protecting most.

The word clingy, whats up with that?If two people love spending all of their time together, it's considered a close bondHowever, if one partner would rather not be so close ..The one who loves and enjoys being around them is called clingyWe start placing negative words onto a positive thing, just because it is a negative to us .. then we harm their esteem for appreciating 'our' presence greatlyWe make them want to change, when thats not naturally who they are .. what really is wrong with them? nothing .. they have something big to give to one the sameI believe if a marriage will run for a whole life time, the closer the bond, the better .. for them, anyway.It's better for us not use such a harmful word towards a positive thing .. which anybody would be lucky to have (even if we ourselves can't appreciate it).If we prefer a lot of time alone.. or like spending plenty of our time with others instead of the one we'd potentially be with.. all our lives, then let's not place blame on the loving oneThey have a gift, do

LessonsWhat are the value of lessons, if we have to lose, to learn?what if those who love us today, wouldn't if we hadn't yet learned?How can we ever know what is unconditional love?If you have somebody who loves you despite your lessons...never let go of them, they're no pushover. in them.. you haveunconditional love.

Blessed CurseTo derail the myth or fantasy that beautiful flesh has meaning or virtue or spiritual depth,I stand on my proverbial cracked, and broken soapbox with an audience of one who was captured by no fault of his own.Physical beauty is similar to an ultra wealthy individual who will never know if its truly love or simply shallow greed lying beside him.Is cellular allure an asset?Possibly, certainly it is a time sensitive one as the doors opened by such allurement close quickly;unless your have the staying power of compassion and intellect.Does a beautiful facade make life easier, less painful?Life within a pressurized can is excruciating.It may hurt even more to be under a microscope as all the dirty, bruising stumbles and falls of life take place.How do you have a healthy relationship when your exterior makes you subject to the base desires of our species?How do you not objectify yourself when the entire world does?Hard lessons, tougher consequences and the will to shine so bright
Individuality and IdentityYou are individual. There is no one like you, not even your identical twin. The collection of thoughts and feelings that make you yourself are unique to you. In all of history, they have occurred only once, and they will never come around again.And yet, you still conform. You wish you could be just a little different, a bit more like so-and-so - in short, you wish that you could be different from what you are and more like everyone else. Many of you will have, at some point, wished you were someone else, or that you had the latest symbol of status, or the approval of your peers. You wish to trade away your individuality and swap it for an identity, one which proves that you are just like everyone else.The atoms that form matter are identical. There is, literally, nothing to tell them apart. Even their location isn't an accurate indicator, because at a quantum level location is just a probability. Despite that, atoms cannot occupy the same space. They repulse each other. It takes an e

Parrots Confidential (The Value of Animal Life)(11/15/2014)_______________________________________________________________________For those who are considering the idea of raising pets, especially exotic birds in particular, this is a good documentary to watch; it's called Parrot Confidential. It's a whole episode for about an hour long (but for those who may not have the time you can still watch a chunk of the material and get the gist of what's going on): http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/parrot-confidential/parrot-confidential/8496/The video particularly discusses an issue with the pet trade of exotic parrots and the harsh reality of the consequences of humans taking them in as pets. The documentary uses a collection of personal stories that discuss the issues of parrot-owning, including a bird breeder who would find that many of the parrots bred from her shelter are being constantly re-homed, making her feel that she is contributing to the problem. Another mentions the issue of egg-snatching and how human inte

IrrationalDo you know what pain is? Something you feel when you are hurt? A human feeling one suffers when physically afflicted? That, my friend, is where you’d be wrong.Pain is nothing more than a mental reaction, something our minds make us feel as a defensive mechanism. A way to recognize something is harmful to our bodies and prompt us to “Cease and Desist!”.If this is the case then how can we suffer pain on a mental and emotional level? Be cast into a train of thought, exposed to a certain stimulus, that cause our bodies to tire, wither and ache as if shards of glass were pushed deep into our skin?Does that not seem irrational? How can thoughts and emotions, sadness, depression, anger and even love itself, cause us very real pain? It’s madness, isn’t it?But, perhaps that is the answer: madness. We, as creatures of thought, emotions and rationality, are all very much mad. We, as human beings, are irrational and thus we feel such things.But is that such a ba
