0 PEACE OF MIND IS A CHOICE YOU MUST GIVE YOURSELF



In life i have found that there will always be something to worry about if you don't give yourself permission to embrace peace. 
Peace of Mind. 
Peace of Spirit. 
Peace of Body. 
Peace of Soul. 
What i have learnt is this: 
You cannot and should not contaminate your head with worry.
You cannot and should not allow others to steal your joy and expression of happiness.
You cannot and should not worry about things you can't change or have no control over.
You cannot and should invest in the misery of your whole being. 
To be invested is to be infested.
Decontaminate your mind and deliberately and systematically flood and infiltrate it with peace.
Choose the light of peace regardless of......​

Peace be with you always.

2 TTC BUS DRIVE DISTURBINGLY SILENT CRUELTY

I was coming back from a lunch run. I boarded the 506 bus on Crawford St., going east to Victoria Park Station #9220. The driver did not lower the bus. I though OK and stepped up (didn't realize the step up was so high). I flashed my pass and sat down. 

The next stop:
An elder Asian woman boarded, again he didn't lower the bus. Slightly shaky she paid her fare and extended her hand for a transfer. He did not give her the transfer rather he rested the transfer on the fare box and she hand to pick it up from there. I simple shook my head at his behavior. 

At the next stop:
Aroind 2:15 an elderly Caucasian woman with a cane tried to get on, again he didn't lower the bus. She struggled and managed to get in. I said "why didn't lower the bus?" I got no response. He took off driving before older woman could sit. She wobbled a bit with her cane. I quickly got up and gave her my seat.

Destination:
At Bathurst & College I stood prepared to leave the bus, he still did not lower the bus. I held on and step down slowly. I looked at him and shook my head. As I walked away I heard the middle aged Afro-Caribbean man that was on the bus with me ask him to lower the bus. I did not turn around to see the drivers response. I was already disgusted with his passive aggressive behavior and his baltant disregard and compassion for anyone. I did hear the Afro-Caribbean man let loose some curse words on the driver asking him who the hell he think he was. At that point I looked back just in time to  see his vexed face, hands flaring as he expressed his frustration to the driver about his toxic attitude. Having experienced the drivers attitude for a couple of stops as well he told the driver that when he stopped the bus he is suppose to lower the bus for passengers especially those needing the assistance. It is then I heard the bus being lowered. 

In Truth: 
We all have bad days, sad days and simply intolerable and unbearable days, it's called being human. What we don't have is the right to take it out the shit we are feeling &; experiencing on others.

9 WILLFUL IGNORANCE

Some accidence are not accidence but simply willful ignorance. This morning on the first leg of my commute to work a woman with an infant in her arms and her children boarded. Her mother or mother in law I presume came in with the stroller first, a boy probably 5 or 6 sat in the stroller. On the top of the stroller sat a toddler no more than 2 years old. His foot dangled and his body moved from side to side as she navigated the stroller down the aisle.

I assumed she perched the little one the stroller to maneuver the it in the bus and would remove him once she settled.The young woman with the infant sat next to me. The baby look about 3 to 4 months old. 

I resumed reading my eBook "Savage Hunter" by Terry Spear. As I read I heard an elderly man who sat to the left of me saying something. I paused from my reading and looked up. I quickly realized he was not speaking to me but to the older woman with the stroller who to my surprise still had the 2 yr old perched on top the stroller. He was advising her on the danger of leaving the child there as the bus moved. He warned that a sudden hard brake by the driver of the bus can result in the child being thrown and getting seriously hurt. She smiled leaning forward and holding the child as if to say "I got him now." I steered at her incredulously as the bus moved and the child swayed. I looked at her and said, "he should not be on there, it is not safe." She replied, "he refuse to sit in the stroller." I said, "but you are the adult." The young woman with the infant to my right rose out her hand on the stroller and said defensively, "he is my son and if he wants to sit up there he can sit up there." The elderly man stop speaking immediately. The people on the bus steered at her the same time the bus pulled into the subway station. I looked at her while the elder woman is tried speaking with her and took the child off. She announced, "it's my son." I said to her leaving the bus, "I hope your ignorance does not pay off because it will be your child to pay the price for your stupidity."

Seriously, is that something to  stand and defend?  Others caring that your child is not hurt? No one wants to bare witness to a child getting hurt. "Dumb Ass!"

2 STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE SMALL THINGS

Often we are told 
“forget the past” 
As if the lessons in the past are irrelevant, 
As if there is nothing to be learnt, 
to be understood, 
to grow 
and 
transform from....
