Wrestling with patterns

I’ve written before on ‘patterns‘. As I go on I discover more how serious patterns are in our lives. There are of course good patterns and bad patterns. Patterns are not simply what people refer too as ‘habits’. Habits though having patterns of their own, reside within the a deeperRead More

Who is Jordan Peterson – or anybody else?

Jordan Peterson shot into international fame recently, in the last two years especially. So now ‘everybody’ is asking, “Who is Jordan Peterson?” If you (whoever you may be) thinks this post is gonna tell you, then you might as well leap off a cliff right now.  I’m more concerned withRead More

Is justification the root of all evil?

Justification according the Oxford Dictionary means: “The action of showing something to be right or reasonable.” Obama Law GIF from Obama GIFs I’ll start from a position where people know what is ‘right’ from ‘wrong’ – on any particular thing, not necessarily legally wrong. Let me take ‘interpersonal violence’ asRead More

FOMO, ROMO & JOMO

I’ve been thinking about FOMO for quite some time, in the background of course. Now it’s coming into the foreground. Then there is JOMO, which most people think they know about but know nothing. ROMO people will know about but haven’t attached the mnemonic. People – in general of courseRead More

Why I have no friends

What is it with people?

Right – it’s my blog and I’ll rant if I want to! For quite some time I’ve been noticing that one (namely me) feels a tad apprehensive that some fool will imply meanings into what I post on the internet (aka social media).  And why? Because meanings implied into whatRead More

Decisions and consequences

Why do people make decisions at all? What to cook, when to cook, what car to buy, what phone, what action to take, what job, when to give notice.. and so on. Life is full of decisions. Ultimately most people in their ordinary lives make decisions because they wish forRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More
