JDS Insights: November 2010

OKOKOK...unconventional and ridiculous - two blog posts in one day.

I'm just tying up the loose ends.

A month of moving forward. My first Saturday detention, my second trainee teacher, yet another 30th and well...a house? Maybe.

Things moved quickly in November. I think this month showed how much life is about clearing stuff out the way for *other* stuff to arise.

Another month, another book too - this time engaging with Economics...I do love it! Capitalism 4.0: The Birth of a New Economy in the Aftermath of Crisis really starts to examine the current recession but is also a history of Capitalism. Interesting stuff.

Book and tech reviews might be a good thing to start to focus my ideas. Thoughts?

Yeah well...that was November.**
01 Nov: Evolve or die.

02 Nov: Do nothing and shit builds up.

03 Nov: Heal physical bruising and battering with rest. Prevent with balanced diet and regular exercise.

04 Nov: Heal emotional bruising and battering with truthful conversation. Prevent with balanced listening and regular forgiveness.

05 Nov: Practising something means it doesn't disappear.

06 Nov: We don't live in a world of absolutes.

07 Nov: We are always looking into the past; literally, and metaphorically.

08 Nov: New stuff happens every day, hour, minute and second. We just don't pay attention to it.

09 Nov: People will say all sorts of stuff. I will do all sorts of stuff. The more they overlap the less free space for me.

10 Nov: It's not always easy to clarify what I want *intellectually*. But part of me knows it always expresses itself.

11 Nov: At the highest level, we all want the same thing.

12 Nov: Scarcity: a fundamental economic concept and driving force for no sharing.

13 Nov: The more I think about something,the more real it seems. The more I try *not* to think about something, the more real it seems.

14 Nov: We are surrounded by people who love us yet we don't always remember this.

15 Nov: Yes they *do* care. Despite what the voice in your head is telling you.

16 Nov: Clarifying feelings from truth takes a lot of discernment and practice.

17 Nov: Does earning money have to be difficult?

18 Nov: There *is* enough for everyone.

19 Nov: Inflexibility leads to breakages.

20 Nov: You can fit more into life than you realise.

21 Nov: One thing at a time increases effectiveness.

22 Nov: Open your eyes, mind and heart and deal with what's in front of you.

23 Nov: If you enjoy your job, there is no space for illness.

24 Nov: Practising helps but we aren't always clear what we practise.

25 Nov: Fear is perfectly natural. The choice is if it stops action.

26 Nov: It's not always clear how to do something when you first conceive it.

27 Nov: You just don't know until you take action.

28 Nov: Wisdom is not automatically earned through age.

29 Nov: Words communicate. Thoughts affect. Feelings influence. Action produces. But Being holds it all.

30 Nov: Does anyone have the answer? Depends on the question.
