...And Preservation of Humanity
Obviously, this page is incomplete--I like its beginning, though. Starting with the above ideal, which has guided me since my young adulthood bloomed in wilderness adventures.
Here is a quote from Steiner that I use as a litmus test; Every idea that does not become an ideal for you kills a force in your soul, but every idea that becomes an ideal for you creates forces of life within you. I use this wisdom to discern if I am living by my ideals--the more I do, the more creative I become.
I recognize ever more truly that thoughts are as real as things; our ideas and ideals hold power and creativity.
With this in mind, I offer a few of my personal favorites--and welcome your comments about your ideals. Please send me a message on the "More Info" page.
Why bother unless it's fun? has become a favorite ideal, often guiding me to wise decisions.
Loving Kindness has never let me down.
Take care with every word spoken or written--I've stopped using swear words when conscious of them--sort of like low-hanging fruit on a tree, swear words are easy; this action has removed some residual darkness. I do use shiitake and fudgoli on occasion. As a budding writer, I love embracing the power of words--they matter.
