...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 adulthood bloomed in the teen years, I have always been steered toward goodness with wildness.
A quote from Steiner that has served me well is, 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.
As I also recognize ever more truly that thoughts are as real as things, well, our ideas and ideals hold much power and creativity.
With this in mind, I offer a few of my personal favorites--and welcome your comments if you like, about your ideals. If you send me a message to add your thoughts, I will--I'll figure out how to add comments on this page someday, but in the meantime, send me a message on the "Nuts and Bolts" page.
Why bother unless it's fun? Is an idea that has become an ideal, and it often guides 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 fudge on occasion. As a budding writer, I love embracing the power of words--they matter.
