There is an over-whelming, exhaustive-flood of so-called “information”… a raging mud-flood of a virtual-kind on-line–the internet/the media, in print, etc….caution is needed… so as not to drown!! And to stay afloat/alive in the pure-*sea-of-Accuracy!!:)

(*Sea/see…positive results aka wisdom is proved true by clear evidence.)

(That’s where i choose to swim (*see results); in safe waters (of accuracy) without sharks, snakes, profiteers, etc., Piranha!-OUCH.)

am very selective about my mind-food…(If we are what we eat, i wanna be sweet and not bitter!😉 and healthy, happy, and hopeful. 🙂

{So much so-called “information” “knowledge” is tainted by bias, self-serving-opinion, and extreme-emotion or power-money-motive..in my POV;)}

i thoroughly “respect” this ancient-Biblical warning:

The words of the wise are like oxgoads, and their collected sayings are like firmly embedded nails; they have been given from one shepherd. 12 As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12:12…

3 “Curiosity has long been a human trait. The dangers of wasting too much time in the pursuit of useless or even harmful information were recognized back in the days of King Solomon.”

i am a learner… and value study/research–“accuracy” every day: to aid in sound-balanced-accurate decision-making that doesn’t endanger/hurt my life or fellow-fragile-life or cut it short..

 Some individuals have become information addicts, always feeding an insatiable desire to be up-to-date while neglecting more important things. Others acquire partial information about complex fields of knowledge and then view themselves as experts. Based on only a limited understanding, they may make crucial decisions that can cause harm to themselves or to others. And always present is the danger of exposure to false or inaccurate information. There is often no reliable way to verify that the flood of information is accurate and balanced. w 5/1/00 par. 2

Is it a “trap” to fall into mind-binge-eating?! Is one mind/one stomach “actually” capable of or have legitimate accessibility to all known mind-food out there?! Does the “arrogant” mind-binger say… “hmmm, I know-it-all because I’ve eaten it all…the (junk??) food out there/readily available aka anything/everything I can get my mind on… and am now left empty or with sour stomach/indigestion or worse (and unsatisfied and still hungry)… so (is it “reasonable” for the junk-food mind-binger to conclude), there must not exist “any” healthy, whole, nutritious, satisfying-truth-food?!”

Just like physical food choices have short/long-term positive or negative health affects…

 Personally, my mind-appetite is always satisfied by scripture…

16 I applied my heart to acquire wisdom and to see all the activity* happening on the earth,+ even going without sleep day and night.* 17 Then I considered all the work of the true God, and I realized that mankind cannot comprehend what happens under the sun.+ No matter how hard men try, they cannot comprehend it. Even if they claim that they are wise enough to know, they cannot really comprehend it.+ Ecclesiastes chapter 8.

{Perhaps? Post to be continued…idk.}

Happy-Healthy-Mind-Eating to You Reader:).. and PEACE:)

Rip OFF

attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life change choice communication compassion conscientious-ness control education forgiveness insights Joan Winifred kindness knowledge logic mind food never giving up! patience peace positive qualities power Proverbs spiritual food stress management things i learned Truth wisdom

Don’t be ripped off…
by the ripper-off-ers!

Don’t be deceived… by the smoking smoke screens!

1. Alcohol & drug intoxication… a rip off …not true ecstasy.

2. Smoking/drugging… a rip off… not real air/oxygen…energy.

3. Nationalism…a rip off… not true-united-brotherhood-of-global-fellow-fragile-life seeking the unselfish best interests of all.

4. Fame & Fortune… a rip off… not true friendship nor true security…

“There are companions ready to crush one another; But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” PRO verbs 18:24

“For wisdom is a protection just as money is a protection, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves the life of its owner.” Eccl. 7:12

“The wealth of the rich is his fortified city; It is like a protective wall in his imagination.” PRO verbs 18:11

5. Latest technology… a rip off… IF mostly misused to hurt rather than help/heal…(Or to silence/kill instead of communicating/interacting/living/moving).

6. FAKE Religion/Big Business…Fake Government…Fake Media/Fake mind-food aka fake knowledge/fake leadership…inaccurate/insufficient misinformation/propaganda, no actual evidence, etc….a rip off… not TRUE satisfying spirituality (or leadership) leading aka setting example worthy of imitation/modeling…leading to TRUE peace (and life/longevity eternal).

“One whose appetite is satisfied turns down honey from the comb, But to the hungry, even what is bitter tastes sweet.” PRO verbs 27:7

“And I heard another voice out of heaven say: “Get out of her (fake religion), my people, if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

7. War games/violence… a rip off… not a viable solution/resolution to conflict …”those who take up the sword… perish by the sword!”

“Then Jesus said to him: “Return your sword to its place, for all those who take up the sword will perish by the sword.” Matthew 26:52

“As a city broken through, without a wall, is the man who cannot control his temper.” PRO verbs 25:28

(a limited list; e.g., not extensive… obviously;

I’m sure You could think of other rip-offs to add.)

Accurate Knowledge… along with proactive-POSITIVE Psychological tactics/non-combative/”spiritual” warfare…(in my POV) is like non-invasive, bloodless, precise, mind surgery… with better outcomes!… respecting the sacredness/preciousness of life!:)

“By patience a commander is won over, and a gentle (mild) tongue can break a bone.” PRO verbs 25:15

“Like an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold is a wise reprover to a receptive ear.” PRO verb 25:12

“A mild answer turns away rage, But a harsh word stirs up anger.” PRO verb 15:1

“If your enemy (the one hating you) is hungry, give him bread to eat; If he is thirsty, give him water to drink. For you will be heaping burning coals on his head (that is to soften the person and melt his hardness), and Jehovah (True God of Compassion) will reward you.” PRO verbs 25:22

Put away from yourselves every kind of malicious bitterness, anger, wrath, screaming, and abusive speech, as well as everything injurious. 32 But become kind to one another, tenderly compassionate, freely forgiving one another just as God also by Christ freely forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31, 32

PEACE Reader:)… keep up the fully-awake-wise-fine-fight:  Soldier of Compassion!:)

Is a house… truly a home without peace & compassion & agape (unselfish) love??… what about our beautiful planet Earth with all its inhabitants?! (Would You agree?…Each family member aka fellow-fragile-life has a personal responsibility to contribute/maintain/sustain home aka Earth.)

Peripheral Project(s) Due-ing Justice

appreciation humility Joan Winifred never giving up! patience

Never tried to undervalue or underappreciate or turn a blind eye…(to) the peripheral (vision, the outer spots, etc)… or the unintended peripheral (project(s), etc.)…(though, peripherals can de a danger (ous) distraction,

Hoping
And praying

[…] not a waste of my time, efforts, etc.???

Let’s hope–Your/(my) pride is not inoperable/inordinate.

Cause pride negates/is deadly!!!…makes ANY skill(s) ANY s0-called demo of central compassion…non-functioning/fatal.

Me, my self(-restraint), and You

attitude Breathing-Fragile-Life Joan Winifred patience

Patience helps keep one/us/fellow-fragile-life restrained (or in self-control along with maintaining a positive outlook/attitude) under… say (extreme) pressure, stress, distress, duress, injustice, persecution, provocation…situations/conditions/circumstances beyond our direct/indirect/immediate, etc. control.

Patience helps me keep myself restrained i.e. so as NOT to take my own (imperfect) sense of justice out on You/fellow-fragile-life…patience helps me treat all Others the way I would like to be treated… aka forgiven (and with respect).

(Some of us-fragile-life choose to practice revenge/retaliation/getting so-called even in both big ways and little ways. I don’t agree with this type of counter-productive behavior…it doesn’t improve things. Another hurtful act or word doesn’t contribute to healing/peace.)

(Though, it is difficult when hurting to not self-focus and remain calm and open-minded to the big picture of compassion.)

My patience and compassion have been tested a lot the past few weeks… between illnesses, hurricanes, people passing…including RIP T.N. on Friday this week:(

Obviously, patience is a positive quality… a healthy spiritual trait and may be an underutilized coping strategy…encompassing forgiveness and compassion and endurance when things get tough.

Patience also involves waiting… and don’t like to keep anybody waiting nor do I like waiting for looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!!!

Tomorrow…

Another opportunity

for patience

(and compassion)

Thank You Reader:) for patiently reading this post.
