I am staring out at a foggy morning view that really is beautiful considering how close it is to NYC. It is a bit why I want to go and build/work/live far into nature. There is a resonate frequency of nature that man seems to be converging up and losing touch with each advance in his technology. I have yet to find the technology bringing peace to the heart and soul. While we are working on some ideas, the reality is you don’t need any of them. What you have to do is make a choice to be still and be ok that the answer might not come in the time you have allotted.
Helping my friends have had me rethink the idea of how much space one needs to live. This transition isn’t really odd for me, instead, when I look at the global distribution of assets, we are becoming even more polarized. I don’t believe one can ever solve the problem of greed in humans, but I think one can give a choice for humans to be able to all have decent space and quality of life to live in on the planet.
When I get back to the desktops, I will mock up some ideas that came together while seeming to resemble a repetitive robot. I think I joked, “ is this space growing, getting larger?” the exciting part is I love space that is open and large. I love large glass windows with a view of nature. I really enjoy living and working in the same area to avoid wasting what a tremendous amount of time driving the circle of life is. That time usage astounds me. Perhaps I should not have studied how people use and spend time when I worked with using technology to manipulate human emotion?
Today, I read the numbers and the use of TV, mobile “connectivity,” games, and the internet. I read the statistics of how much medicine people are taking in my home country and how we will export this. Hopefully, the rest of the world will realize treating a symptom and not finding a cure is not a great model for human health and longevity at the expense of profitability.
I digress. I have been staring out the window and thinking about what to do with the rest of my life. And I articulated it. It is not traditional in any respect, and yet, it is broad enough for me to always be interested and fascinated to wake up full of vitality and energy to see what “new” thing might be created that day.
On the personal side, I have a lot I want to do, and I also have to meld more of the heart into the head. It is a problem for most men in that we are taught to solve problems, yet, with the heart, about the only person I know that can fix those issues is god. That is the hidden mystery of life in the dimension most of us live in. We think we can solve the problems ourselves or ask for help is somehow a weakness.
Maybe that is where the real love for God had come forth? when everything crashed, the only person god was looking down with compassion as if to say, “wow, that probably really hurt. want to try it my way this time?”
Ok …my time is done. I don’t have a picture to share with you of the view I am looking at. It is one of those I will just keep inside my own mind and try to find a place on the planet where either I move around to various place like this, or I find the one spot where “this is it. build it here.”
