If one were to Truly love children

One can make Angles out of them.

Quote of the day....

There is no maxim in my opinion 

which is more liable to be misapplied, and 

which therefore needs elucidation than 

the current one that the interest of the majority is 

the political standard of right and wrong... . 

In fact it is only reestablishing under another name and 

a more specious form, force as the measure of right... 

-- James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 
4th US President

Towards a new path....

If there have been solutions to

manmade problems

They mostly came through 

Human desperation,hard work

and even by accident

In addition to a great deal of 

sacrifice in good faith.

Speaking of "Why".....

If one were to learn to say "why" 

As often as one could 

In most of one's affairs in this world..

The world would be A far better place than 

If one were to speak a million words 

from a dictionary.

Quote of the day......

"No more fatuous chimera has ever infested

the brain than that you can control opinions by law or

direct belief by statute, and

no more pernicious sentiment ever tormented

the heart than the barbarous desire to do so.

The field of inquiry should remain open, and

the right of debate must be regarded as

a sacred right."

-- William E. Borah(1865-1940) U. S. Senator

         *      *      *      *      *

It is dangerous to be right in matters

on which the established authorities are wrong.


-- Voltaire[Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694-1778)

A fool's errand......

Imitation is A fool's best errand.

Quote of the day.....

If ever a time should come, 

when vain and aspiring men shall possess 

the highest seats in Government, 

our country will stand in need of its 

experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.

--- US Founding Father Samuel Adams.

Quote of the day.....

When any government, or any church for that matter, 

undertakes to say to its subjects, 

"This you may not read, this you may not see, 

this you are forbidden to know,

the end result is tyranny and oppression, 

no matter how holy the motives. 

Mighty little force is needed to control a man 

whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, 

no amount of force can control a free man, 

a man whose mind is free. 

No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything -- 

you can't conquer a free man; 

"the most you can do is kill him."

-- Robert A. Heinlein(1907-1988) American writer

True Compassion...

One can not be said to be truly compassionate

by/through earthly attachments ....

What is a Noble Act.....?

A reflection, A sentiment,

an act even in moderation

towards being Just and humane is

No less a Noble act.

Analytic of Relativity of truth....

In a relativistic assumption, 

when 99% presented as true or factual

and the rest 1% as lie or erroneous

The facts of which in A paradigm shift

show case the 99% as lie and 

only 1% representing the truth.

Monday, October 26, 2015

True Nobility.....

True nobility is an account of 

One's generosity towards others

Than any notable claim...

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Past and Future....

The more of the past we have to deal with 

the more of the future we forfeit.

Faith conundrum...

Truer faith has more in common with

the divine and humane among us

than with religion.

p.s- as an example one does only need to look at 


Christ for such understanding.

Monday, October 19, 2015

Preposition -^&#...

Only an autonomous act can initiate change

All else is contrived.

A preposition in moral logic.....

When a supposition X is equal to A or B or C or D

and so on so forth,

Yet an assumption that X is not equal to X were to be held

Then X=X ,  in all probability 

By the very supposition that

X is equal to A,B,C,D.

Friday, October 16, 2015

The being as "signified".....

A being in essence is just a "biological creature 

like any other" and 

all attributes that personify the being 

either as assumed or believed to be true are 

mere constructs of the being itself 

in signifying the very nature of being 

which otherwise is of least or no significance 

in the way nature organizes and demonstrates itself.

Thursday, October 15, 2015

A lower species...

If one has lived a life mostly justifying Evil

One has not had a true existential challenge 

In one's life,

nor is one's life touched by humanity or divinity.

Quote of the day......

Nature does nothing in vain...

Emerson "Self-Reliance"

Who so would be a man must be a nonconformist

He who would gather immortal palms 

must not be hindered by the name of goodness, 

but must explore if it be goodness. 

Nothing is at last sacred 

but the integrity of your own mind.

-- Emerson

Freedom from past....

Acting....

Acting now....

To do now... 

Acting now must be free from the past.

To make a virtue.....

If one were to make a virtue of something or anything 

One has began to undermine everything else, and 

by which one has opened an arena for devils play.

When the poor ones speculate...

Speculation among the poor and impoverished is

Akin to superstition and myth building.

Quote of the day...


Only two things are infinite,

the universe and human stupidity,and


I’m not sure about the universe...


~Albert Einstein.


Do they know not what they do....

First they say it is the right thing to do

For the good of humanity and

In the name of humanity...

They use every excuse to do

what they have been wanting to do...

Then, as the people are moved by their humanity

In witnessing the gruesome nature of those acts

Some begin to say it was the wrong thing to do,

Saying, we in the first place should not have meddled

Then they go on saying....

It has become a problem and headache

Which we must and should deal with (obviously)

For the good of humanity, and

Then they continue doing...

What they always wanted to do.

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Identities....

Any entrenched identity is

An unbreachable irrationality.


All rational identities are distinct and universal 

In essence they are homosapien and 

One and the same.

Quote of the day ..."Spiritual Freedom".........

I call the mind free which jealously guards

its intellectual rights and powers,


which calls no man master,

which does not content itself

with a passive or hereditary faith...

To Care....

It is not easy to care for others

It calls for true compassion that 

which is free from any attachment

and is a quality of one's humanity.


Indeed it is very difficult 

to truly care for others...

Even the best among us either pretend or

unknowingly believe that 

they truly care for others.

Quote of the day.....

If the innocent honest Man must quietly quit 

all he has for Peace sake, to him 

who will lay violent hands upon it, 

I desire it may be considered what kind of Peace 

there will be in the World, 

which consists only in Violence and Rapine; and 

which is to be maintained only for 

the benefit of Robbers and Oppressors.

-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist.

"You can’t, in sound morals,

condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity.

It is his clear duty.

To respect Others....

One that had no respect for other's faith or tradition

Has very little respect for any faith or tradition.

Quote of the day....

We, the famished, ragged ragamuffins of

the East are to win freedom for all humanity!

We have no word for 'nation' in our language.

-- Vishwa kavi Rabindranath Tagore.
Nobel laureate.
His reflections on pre-independence India's
 contribution to the first world war.

                  *      *      *      *      *

Author of the greatest anti-war poem in the

English language, Dulce et Decorum Est.

The great British poet Wilfred Owen

was to return to the front to give his life

in the futile First World War, he recited

Tagore's Parting Words to his mother

as his last goodbye.

When he was so tragically and pointlessly killed,

Owen's mother found Tagore's poem copied out

in her son's hand in his diary:


When I go from hence

let this be my parting word,

that what I have seen is unsurpassable.

I have tasted of the hidden honey of this lotus

that expands on the ocean of light,

and thus am I blessed

---let this be my parting word.

In this playhouse of infinite forms

I have had my play and

here have I caught sight of him that is formless.

My whole body and my limbs

have thrilled with his touch who is beyond touch;

and if the end comes here, let it come

- let this be my parting word.

Quote of the day....

Absolute, arbitrary power

over the lives, liberty and property

of freemen exists nowhere in a republic,

not even in the largest majority.

Quote of the day..

Ever since the beginning of modern science, 

the best minds have recognized that 

"the range of acknowledged ignorance will 

grow with the advance of science." 

Unfortunately, the popular effect of 

this scientific advance has been a belief, 

seemingly shared by many scientists,that

the range of our ignorance is steadily diminishing and

that we can therefore aim at more comprehensive and 

deliberate control of all human activities. 

It is for this reason that those intoxicated by 

the advance of knowledge so often become 

the enemies of freedom."

-- Friedrich August von Hayek
(1899-1992), Nobel Laureate of Economic Sciences 1974

          *      *      *      *      *

"A heretic is a man who sees with his own eyes."

Quote of the day..........

A democratic despotism is like a theocracy:

it assumes its own correctness.

-- Walter Bagehot.
(1826-1877)

Towards a Right action....

Lacking in any kind of principle is 

One's inability to define oneself.

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Self identity...........

Say religion,faith,and one's identity etc

is not defined by inheritance, 

or even  by a tradition, where 

All life forms are one and the same.


It is in one's conscious efforts and 

becoming aware of the self that which is 

in constant realization, One gets to 

define one's identity....


Where one's identity is nothing but 

To be responsible for Who one is 

To begin with.

To know / Who are You....?

The most enlightened revelation 

One can ever have is to know 

the nature of one's imperfections.

Quote of the day.....

On May 25th, 2012, Biden spoke to families of 

fallen soldiers and described the appeal of suicide.

"I probably shouldn’t say this with the press here,

" Biden said, "but no, but it’s more important, 

you’re more important. 

Just when you think, 

‘Maybe I’m going to make it,’ 

you’re riding down the road and 

you pass a field, and 

you see a flower and it reminds you. 

Or you hear a tune on the radio. 

Or you just look up in the night. 

You know, you think, 

‘Maybe I’m not going to make it, man.'

For the first time in my life, 

I understood how someone could 

consciously decide to commit suicide. 

Not because they were deranged, 

not because they were nuts, because 

they had been to the top of the mountain, and 

they just knew in their heart 

they would never get there again."

-- Joe Biden.

47th Vice president of United States.

Quote of the day.....

People want it. People can get it.

We live in a capitalistic democratic society,

So we get what we want.

To Will......

To will that is most enduring and fruitful..

Is to know the true nature of one's imperfections.
     

Navigating the present...

The present moment is ever present in its movement,

Hence there is no circumventing it.

Confession / clarification.........

Confession/clarification is one of the cleansing process of 

Inner thought ( self) and actions of a person :

A choice there remains is how one chooses to address it, 

Not a mear ( insignificant/simple /indifferent) 

manipulation of  the conscious self,  

that leads one to be delusional with distortions of reality, 

where one is lost even more in to 

The trappings of falsehood 

But, is a journey to regain one's innocence

that is humble and vulnerable.

An undoing, where nothing is left for imagination... 

And  with out such cleansing

There is neither transcendence nor 

Evolution of the self.
