Three Rules of Living a Public Life

Three Rules of Living a Public Life

Rule #1: Never, ever admit that you are wrong. It makes you look weak.

Rule #2: Gently flipflop if you have to admit you possibly were factually challenged. Attack the other side as having misled and then say that honest people can reach different conclusions … and if that doesn’t work:

Rule #3: See Rule #1.

LIFE / Karma / Potatoes

LIFE / Karma / Potatoes

“If dreams were thunder
And lightning was desire
This old house would’ve burned down
A long time ago”

Yep…. yep … yep! Kinda like that on some days.

Although I’m not complaining. Life is good … I would just like to find the damned rewind button so I could do all the good parts again … which is about 99.9% of my life so far.

>>> I like my life so far and so well that I’m sure that when I get to heaven that St. Peter is going to permanently put me on ‘peeling potatoes’ in the kitchen because I done got good.

>>>>>> And if I should end in hell, I’m sure that Sammy Satan will put me on the ‘Baked Potatoes’ prep team … because I done got good.

Not that I’m greedy or anything but am sure hoping that both karma and reincarnation, as described on the Internet, sure is real because I hear that if you’re good now then it only gets gooder later … or better for you grammar Nazis.

One day … I will be a Fuji Apple or Bartlett Pear tree

More than super cool. I want to be a Fuji apple tree … or a nice Bartlett pear.

The Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer.

Zen – Life is a Game.

In all things I feel blessed. Have come to appreciate that any bad seems to usually work out in some way that is for my good.

A good attitude can work miracles. Stay curious. Challenge authority. The biggest loser is someone that doesn’t try to play the game.

Life is a game. You may not like politics or whatever, but not liking something will not keep it from coming to you. Life happens. Play it well.

Zen and Now – looking for better in life

Peace and best wishes for those with pain and challenges. The world isn’t fair. If I can help then I will.

For most Americans the world was a better place today than yesterday. And it will be a better place tomorrow. We’ve just got to keep working on chasing away the gremlins and working to make it a better place than it was today.

Perfection ain’t happening but we can do better.

I found freedom for myself through a simple philosophy …

My philosophy:

— Life happens. Get over it.

— Do unto others as you’d want done to you.

— Trust but always verify. People don’t like being fact-checked, but they get used to it if you always do it … and sometimes are better people because of it. Welcome fact-checking of yourself. I do.

— Never trust people that seem to always have all the answers.

— Beware of people that claim to know God personally and that fly a flag at every occasion … yet claim that my understanding of God is errant and my patriotism is misplaced because I don’t believe in X, Y or Z.

— Keep a dog nearby and feed it often. He’s your only best friend.

— Stay curious. Stay skeptic. Consider that you/I may be wrong.
