I know my blogs are few and far between but that is how it is just now. I have been at this blog for several years and it has been so good for me but lately life has just taken over. It is all good I tell myself.
So I keep speaking about prison and myself but another question is how is the outside world doing and everyone in it? I watch the news and there seems to be a lot of media attention on Clinton and Trump. Oh yea…election time! Also seeing that some Trump rallies are getting violent. Here we go again, the Spanish-American Was part II, LOL. It’s interesting though because in the wake of these events I see how the minority finds a way to use emotions to persuade others to violent actions. It is not uncommon is it? I figure things will take care of themselves hopefully without too much pain and suffering for all. Rest assure however that these occurrences just add to my testament to leave this place stronger than ever.
What the heck else is going on…remaining centered by being aware of my thoughts and emotions at ALL times, in my waking moments as well as my dream state. Just this morning someone approached me and made a comment about a particular person that sits with us at the chow table. This person at times is loud, obnoxious and obscene. I told the person commenting to me that I made a conscience decision to sit there for this exact reason. I need/want to develop tolerance, patience and compassion as well as empathy. Truly our problems do not occur outside of ourselves but rather inside. We create our own suffering, our own joy and until we know this we live in ignorance. The Creator (Universe) made many different aspects of itself. This joy comes from self – awareness I find, for me anyway…..And that’s all for now, thanks for checking out my blog!!
