Changing Behavior

In order to help others we must first become comfortable with ourselves. We believe we find the comfort in ourselves from helping others, but sometimes life gets more complicated than that. Blog posts in this section are all about how we can adjust our lives, our  mental attitudes, our routines, on a personal level, so that we can achieve greater levels of personal satisfaction and thus increase our ability to spread positivity.

Every child is born innocent and pure, ready to love and be loved. It takes a mind-and-soul shattering amount of pain during one's childhood to turn a newborn child with a loving nature into a cold-hearted monster who re-enacts his own suffering on similarly innocent children. We must awaken now to how the physical, emotional and sexual violence and manipulation of vulnerable children can create enough rage and pain to cause the murder and destruction of all we hold dear. The killing of the precious angels of Newtown....
I respect the sincere passion and beliefs from all sides that so many of us are expressing about how to regulate firearms and other weapons. But we must open our eyes to the deeper cause of these types of tragedies if we are to effectively and finally end them.

CHRISTMAS, AND SMALL CHILDREN

Our children have grown but my wife and myself look back at how the years have gone by with special consideration of those years of being small....and needing to be Safe and warm and loved...
These types of atrocities- from the violence of a lone madman to the mass violence we call war- have occurred throughout history and will continue to occur until we grasp the destructive nature of what occurs in so many so-called "normal families", behind closed doors.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CHANGE

They say that life is - what happens when we are having fun - and it is also said there are people who" 1-make things happen, 2 - watch things happen and 3-those who shrug their shoulders and say, what happened?
This world of ours is getting scary....just read this item I received from Torrent Freak, who writes about torrents and such....most fascinating....

LESSONS TO LEARN IN CANADA

Its a little sad that there is a tendency for some Canadians to act like spoiled kids and show some disregard for other parts of this big land we call Canada...

Don't Mess with Mother Nature

I took note of Shell Canada wanting to develop a $12 Billion Jackpine Oilsands Mine expansion north of Ft. McMurray. The sad part of the project is the need to play with nature, divert a river....

THE LONELY SIDE OF CHRISTMAS

Christmas has a lonely side, especially for those of us who miss perhaps our Mom or Dad or other loved ones, and friends.....

GOOD DEBT AND BAD DEBT

Just as many( if not most of us) go to bed at night with perhaps thoughts going through our minds whether we can afford certain things - or not - and at the same time, the entire world is facing a debt worry of over two hundred trillion dollars. Our own worries seem to, in a sense, pale in comparison....

When CBC presented their program Marketplace, had cameras hidden to observe cleaning ladies supposedly cleaning rooms, it was positively shocking to see cleaning staff cleaning a sink with a brush just used in a toilet? Perhaps its time for a proper training program for cleaning staff!!!

FOUR MORE YEARS WITH BARRACK

i have heard some prominent Canadians speak about the Obama vs Romney situation and simply shrug their shoulders, concluding it really doesn't matter which one gets in....and either may not benefit the Canadian economy...

WINTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

We had left Beautiful British Columbia and the incredible Columbia Valley just towards the end of October and had managed some incredible hiking just before winter started to arrive....

In my opinion, if you can find a timeshare deal for a buck, grab it, even with maintenance fees being high it can still bring a lot of joy. And more than likely cheaper than booking a motel or hotel....

COLUMBIA VALLEY

When you stop and think about it, the region of the Columbia River Basin, which holds the Columbia River goes back some 40 million years.....they say, this is a place where time stands still...
I know beyond all doubt that parents who spank their children do not intend to inflict the damage I am describing. But the damage surely occurs, regardless of the parents' conscious intentions. This stark fact must be squarely faced if we are to bring transforming light and compassion to bear on this practice- and get beyond it once and for all.
