Early bird or just wait it out?

“The early bird gets the worm.”
“Good things happen to those who wait”
“Strike while the iron is hot.”
“Patience is a virtue.”

Clearly these saying conflict each other. The empirical truth of the matter is that each situation is different and the course of action to take really depends on how much you know about the situation.

If you are not well informed about anything, its best to wait and find out exactly what decision you are trying to make before taking the plunge. So summing up, move fast if you know what you are doing, and take your time, if you don’t know what you are doing. There is no way around it.

Clean house vs Dirty house

Creating and maintaining a good environment is very important.

Compare your state of mind in a clean house vs a very dirty house – how do you feel? What is your motivation level at? How we maintain our environment affects our psyche. It takes work to keep ourselves feeling motivated, cleansed and happy. It is also healthy to keep a clean environment. A pleasant environment also is conducive for a happier friends and family interaction, as people are not tripping over things, and the focus is on living life, enjoying what we enjoy, and not worrying about cleaning up.

Adding good color, art, scent and decor to the environment takes things a notch up in terms of pleasantness. What house do you live in?

Gullible people all around us. Could we be too?

Its always easy to “see” trickery after it has happened and someone discovers it using their logic. Unfortunately people are quick to believe something if they are told that there is a higher force at play. Be this force a “miracle” or “government secret ability”.

The news article below illustrates a con artist profiting from people’s vulnerability to “believe”.

Its prudent to question question question, and be suspicious of anything new told to us. Then research research research before committing to anything. There are too many evil people out there scheming to take advantage of your gullibility. (eg. internet scams, phone scams, robbers, pickpockets, cult preachers, snake oil sellers, quack doctors, mediums, psychics, etc.)

Good Vs Evil – Why it pays to be Good…

Both evil and good do things in the name of good.
No evil person has ever said: “I want to do evil.”

If both good and evil speak the same language, how does one tell them apart?

Here is the litmus test.

Does the living thing which receives the “good” deed feel happy about it?
Is the “good” deed considered legal by the court of law?
What will the general population say about this “good” deed?

If the litmus test fails at any level it identifies an evil deed.

Some “evil”, like say killing a chicken for consumption, while evil to the life being killed, is acceptable by general society and thus not widely condoned. Killing that same chicken for the sport of killing or for “fun” or via torture is seen as unacceptable and deemed a true evil deed.

Evil people are people who do evil things occasionally, and without regard to what others might think. Their primary motivation is self gratification.

Evil has other forms like cruelty, meanness, rudeness, being selfish, etc…

Why be good?

While evil lurks in many places, and we have an equal change of running into it, the probability of running into evil increases if you are also a source of evil. Likewise your probability of running into evil decreases if you do no evil.

Let me explain. If you do evil, the good makes a mental note never to deal with you again. Only other evil minds more accepting of your evil deeds remain around you. Its only a matter of time when these evil minds do evil onto you. As time goes on, and as less and less good surrounds you, you are surrounded by more evil and you are more prone to be subject to be recipient of evil deeds than good deeds.

Living with people of different views

Not every body is as smart as we are, many people are still not mentally evolved as we are. Others are more evolved than us.
Instead of prosecuting lesser minds, we need to look at educating them if that makes our lives better.

Also, there is an amazing amount of stuff we learned from history. History is a natural evolution of our planet, ie our planets “thought process” over millions of years. Surely there is lot to learn from people even though we seemingly may feel we know more than them. That is why I respect all schools of thought as they have evolved to that state as a result of some “thought and logic” and hold much wisdom that I can learn from.
