Wittgenstein Used to pine For his train set He stole mine
Pulled a muscle
What a bother
What a fussle.
Used to pine
For his train set
He stole mine.
Alfred North Whitehead
Said he had decided
To adopt fifteen spiders
To act as advisors
Did away with the cat’s nap
The cat was so tired
They had him rewired
Charles Dickens wrote books
In parts , for their looks.
Thomas Hardy was cold
But ever so bold.
He got married twice
Unlike Jesus Christ
I’ll prove that I am dead.
If my brain gets any bigger,
it won’t fit in my head
With logic and with rigor
I’ll prove that I am dead.
So I shan’t pay no taxes
Nor vote for Donald Trump
I’ll never look up praxis
Nor find a worrying lump
I’ll never see a medic
Nor lose a wisdom tooth
No disease endemic
Will get me,that’s the truth.
I’ll never have to marry
I’ll sleep with whom I choose
I’ll never need to hurry
For I’ve no time to lose
When we think about it
We would be better off
Do not ever doubt it
There,that is enough
Love has made them brighter
Looking through the window of your eyes
I am looking in and you look out
Love can make eyes widen without cries
What you give me now is a surprise
Love enough to live free from great doubt
Looking- glass clear window of your eyes
Your head is free from rust,spiders and flies
I am humming music from “The Trout”
Love can make eyes gladden with surprise
Let me share your merriment and cries
Let me know what you know all about
Looking out the window of your eyes
Some of us can love without reprise
Actors may pretend ,we’ll see them out
Love can make eyes laugh with its surprise
Some fail on occasions, others rise
We obey the law of love without
Sparkling from the windows of your eyes
Love has made them brighter ,no surprise”
Other people are windows
Another person whom we get to know can be a window to a different world.For this to function we have to realise that we are all different and we are all of value.
Even within one culture big differences are there between one person and another.
And in London where I live we have people from hundreds of other countries and we British ourselves are multicultural.Some people find this frightening and our ancestors probably only met people from their own village.
But looked at another way,seeing how a friend from another culture views his/her world is enlightening even if only to give a new perspective on our own culture which we may be unaware of.We may see life from a new perspective.These metaphors from Art are very useful.The artist must see as well as possible and in different ways.So in that sense Art is important not just for pleasure but for living a reasonable life
We may in a metaphorical sense look through this friend’s eyes and see a new world.
Or we may scoff and say how silly and that our culture and our own self are the only ones of value.
Or we may wander on,not really looking so not seeing and so miss many chances of enlightenment
And enlightenment is the best that a new window can offer us.How full of metaphors our languages are.How poetic.
FULL OF ONESELF? HOLIER THAN THOU? IS WILL POWER ENOUGH FOR THE GOOD LIFE?
“Holier than thou” is an interesting phrase.Holiness was a state we were taught we should aim for.But how should we aim for it? Can one become holy by will power?
I suspect not.Though one could be wicked by will power though I suspect most people don’t usually want to be wicked.And I don’t believe babies are born evil as I was taught.But we do wicked things.Pride is often involved.So what are some qualities that may help us to become ,not holy perhaps, but better.The first is one thing doctors have to agree to:
Do no harm.
How can we do no harm? Well paying attention is a possible beginning.If we are not attentive to ourself and the lives around us we don’t have the basis for choosing how to act.Then there is the quality of our perceptions.To a large extent these may have been formed by our experiences in infancy.If we are insecure and anxious we will perceive mainly danger,This leads me to think that we need to gain trust in either God,the Universe,our deeper selves….. something beyond us.If we have little trust we will live on guard and see things in relation to our own safety…..Somehow we will have to move to a wider perception/How many of us truly see others as people who are just as valuable,just as interesting,just as worthy of respect as we are.That when we kill a person physically or emotionally we are killing a whole world.Each person has their own world…..I believe.
If we trust we can perceive and as we perceive so we can act justly, caringly or in the best way possible towards that person.And we hope to receive it back.There is also grace which is a gift… if we live well and are open then grace may come from another source which may help us.But only if we are empty enough for it to come in.Being “full of oneself” is unlikely ro be good.Self forgetting, absorbtion in the other,the world,a task,a creation may be the best part of life.
I found it interesting to make a link between being able to be aware of other people as real people like ourselves and being secure in our inner being.That security or trust enables us to have an attitude called,”Submission to the will of God” in Christian teaching.I am sure it is common to many other religions especially Judaism.And for atheists it can be acceptance of reality,
Without trust in others, life is much harder as we are always concerned with keeping ourselves safe.I am not sure how much we can change our attitude from Fear to Trust.And I read today that paranoia is becoming more widespread probably because the government and other people can spy on us easily or find out where we are etc with modern technology
I recall a friend of mine dying when I was 15.We were taken to the Requiem Mass.I just recall the priest saying in the sermon something from the Bible
he Lord has given and the Lord has taken away
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
In other words,we can’t understand.Life and death are a mystery but we accept this is the will of God
At the time I’m not sure if I believed it.But i think acceptance of pain and grief helps us to cope with it even with the terrible suffering with losing a child.I was the last classmate to see her.It was late October.We left school and walked about 1/2 mile.I lived there but she had to then catch a bus fro a 4-mile journey
I still see her smiling face.Eight days later she died.
When you suffer a lot it’s hard to trust God,the Universe and all else.And depending on the circumstances it’s easy to be bitter or vengeful.But that will not help.
What I am wondering is:
How much can we change our attitudes by will power.Pr is there another way of changing?
Changing the way we see something may give us a different attitude.Talking to a good person may help.Sometimes we can only endure patiently.Sometimes God comes to us in the wilderness of tragedy,grief and pain.Because he can get in when we are still and silent.
I suppose going to the desert or on a Retreat may give us the same opportunity.Sometimes we can’t verbalise our suffering but that is not a problem.I found after seeking many ways out that as many people have said:~
The way out is through.
But we struggle like hell to avoid it!
A very interesting poetry blog
Roberts radios…. trouble.
Don’t buy directly from the maker.I did and I have had 8 weeks of trouble.Now they say if I send it back for repair and they can’t find a fault I will have to pay £20 for them to bring it back.Or they may decide I have damaged the socket by pushing the adapter cord in too hard or too far.I have never had a problem before.
It gets through batteries very rapidly and though advertised as solar it makes only a tiny difference if you let light onto it
The sound is very good but after all these phone calls my voice is wearing out!
Buy through Amazon or some good retailer and they will probably give you another immediately.Amazon did that with my Chromebook.Maybe Roberts are in financial trouble.I doubt it they make their radios here in any case people are into internet and blue tooth.
