Purge the Woes Me
Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
- Charles Dickens (1812-1870)
Purge the Woes Me
Parsing is a valid cognitive function, necessary for a healthy mind. Flourishing aside, the baseline is biological. Expand on this necessity and the repeat-ability of the möbius in motion.
Parse and Prosper
This parsing function in the brain is healthy and sharpens memory. The fiction of flourishing is absolute to be experienced in degrees daily. So some, not so much, for others; a norm. Don't disrupt my homogeneity! That's not a right. It's ignorance.
Long Term Depression (LTD)
With a repetitive and revisionist approach to prosperity, I heuristically frame our habituating parsing function as circular, not in reason but in functionality. Maximizing lifestyle by minimizing excess consumption is a non-existent destination, yet the sojourn should continue; albeit much more frequently!
Eudaimonica is a fictional place of flourishing prosperity, negate the utopia for it does not exist beyond the ideal. The Platonic form of Eudaimonica is rugged, yet beautiful, sustainable yet scarce in resource, abundant in safety yet unpredictably human in nature. Sounds attainable and sustainable.
I don't close the door to belief, and skeptical isn't the right word. I actually feel sad for people trying to create new belief structures and angry when I see then trying to impose these beliefs on others. My vote is to similar to Emil Cioran, wither away, and intelligence will flourish. For anyone that makes the claim that intelligence can not embrace and support emotion, family, love and compassion I say, you are simply wrong!
The debates continue. A new movement here, a cult figure there. What are we all searching for? When you think of work, what exactly are you doing? What are the people around you? Is this a reality or an ideal? What happens with they align?
I have to get back to work. :)
