Merge with the flow of being . . .

I remember when my best friend and I decided to get real philosphical which isn't really all that surprising at all. If you knew him and I, and where we decide to take our conversations you'd realize, it's usually the stuff that matters, especially listening to music.

Well one day, we went for an adventure though the park, and I said to Tom, "Ya know what?" We spend so much time thinking about what we have done or what we have to do. We never just "be" in the present moment. We're so caught up with all the mundaness and normalities of life, that it just passes by. Of course he recited one of his favorite quotes where I don't know where he got. "Merge with the flow of being".

I thought of this because today at FC, Doug Sundheim writes

"Paradoxically, when you're obsessed with results, you're less effective at producing them. This is because your head isn't in the present moment. It's off in the future - worrying about the result. It's like a basketball player trying to win a game by staring at the scoreboard. It doesn't work. Focus on playing the game and the score will take care of itself."

I think this is an excellent observation, it kind of merges itself well with the whole Buddhist/Zen Philosophies as you can see below, Until next time I leave you with this quote:
We should work like the rain. The rain just falls one rain drop after another.
It doesn't ask: Am I making a nice sound down below? Will the plants be glad to
see me? Millions and billions of raindrops, only falling
. -- Jakusho Kwong (1935 - ), American Zen Buddhist Monk

VICARIOUS.... the word of the day. The meaning of the song is very accommodating to TOOL:
For those who don't know me yet, I'm a huge TOOL fan and they tend to get pretty deep, I just found out that. It's the new single, coming out on the 6th Album release, 10,000 Days. A name which deviates from there usual one word enigmatic titles, like "Opiate", "Undertow", "Aenima", "Salival", and lastely "Lateralus". I am heavily anticipating this one, I don't know they can top thier last one. I'm sure you will hear more from me on this in the future . .

Retirement & Relationships

Well, I'm not sure if anyone really reads my rants, whether intellectual or not, I do tend to go on about anything. Anyway, ... I read a "Trend" Survey about Retirement. As you may or may not know, I am a Communications specialist at a very large Retirement Services firm. The most important worry in retirement is obviously, not enough money. The second, is maintaining health. I found this rather interesting. The third is losing social contacts within the workplace.

Just another reminder, it's the people who we meet that really matter in this world.

This will proabably be my last post for another 8 years. HAH!

Thank you Keith Ferrazzi for get me thinking about "Relationships" as usual.

Ready, Aim, Fire . . .

You guys have to to check out Seth's Blog, today he talks about how this funny idea has spread . .


Pertaining to the link above, it makes me think, someone once said there are two knds of people in this world, "Those who kill bugs, and those who don't". Would you aim at the bug?

"Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
American author, minister, & activist

This is an interesting idea, and I have to entertain this thought because Ralph Waldo Emerson was definitely a brilliant man.

How many times have you talked to someone so calmly, and rational to find that the person just didn't "get it"?

I guess we have to transmit some sort of emotion in anything we say, especially if we want to appeal to someone. Logic doesn't always go through . . . But PASSION does.

CAVEAT: This only goes so far though - (Melissa!)
