Every Day Is A Fresh Start

Some may believe that Buddhism teaches that, “Your world is reborn each morning. And you are allowed to start over, at least in spirit.” I, on the other hand, think that Prometheus was far closer to right and truth. πŸ˜‰

Tomatoes are fruit, rarely belong in a fruit salad, but is a Bloody Mary a smoothie? By far, this is better and more applicable philosophy than most of what came out of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Still though, like most philosophical quandaries that ignore the Divine, barstool philosophy is fundamentally wrong or flawed through omission and denial of fundamental Truths. While a Bloody Mary may well be a smoothie, it is also, in many cases, a meal. πŸ˜‰

Into The Garden I Go

Well, I’d like to think that let loose my mind more than I lose it, but gardening is definitely one of the things I do for my soul. Both the actual gardening and the feasting upon the produce that I’ve taken from seed to table does help settle my soul at least a little.

Ummm… yeah. Hegel’s Angels – that’d be some seriously hardcore philosophy. Then, Hegelianism is always pretty damn hardcore. And yes, as I write this I’m thinking about a bunch of serios bikers “debating” the specifics of Entwicklung as it applies to whatever they’re about to do. πŸ˜›

Fight Your Demons?

Fight Your Demons? Nah!
Fight Your Demons? Why Do That?

It’s such a common, trite, refrain; fight your demons. Personally, I don’t see much reason to fight them.

There’s Better Ways To Handle Your Demons πŸ˜‰

Yeah no. I, for one, would much rather reach a mutually satisfying arrangement with my demons. I mean, aside from the obvious benefits of doing so, they’ve always been there for me, even when everyone else left.
