For the most part I greatly admire the Amish tradition, that is except for their practice of shunning. But, in their mind it is necessary to keep the faith pure. For me, I need to keep my sanity in the coming year and I think a shunning will help me do that. That is what this post is all about.
In light of my recent posts on Joy vs Happiness, I hope you have Joy in your heart […]
I’m taking some time off here at RJsCorner to decompress from this somewhat repulsive year of politics and […]
I spend an hour or so each morning with my daily reads. Since I am for the most part shunning things in the political world at least for now, I am always on the lookout for new ideas of looking at the world. This post is about one of those sources I recently found.
This post is a combination of my topics of Aspies, Philosophy, and Religion, but is centered around the topic of death. Those with Asperger’s just don’t see death as most do. And I kinda think that is a good thing. That is what this post is all about.
I have been diligently trying to understand the rationale that some folks have in praising Trump. One of those efforts was to read a book entitled In Defense Of Elitism by Joel Stein. The author was recently interviewed on the PBS Newshour of which I am a regular viewer. Some points I gleaned from the book is what this post is all about.
This post is a continuation of yesterday’s post about the Pursuit Of Happiness. As we discovered yesterday happiness is an ocassional event while Joy is a state of mind. Finding Joy is what this post is about.
The graphic above is a couple of different ways to view the “Pursuit of Happiness” phrase in our Constitution. We are not guaranteed happiness but our right to pursue it should not be stifled by our government. That’s good and fine, but what is happiness? That is what this post is all about.
Are there lessons to be learned from the recent U.K. elections. I think there are, and that is what this post is all about.
According to a recent New York Times piece about one-third of all food produced and packaged for human consumption is wasted. That amounts to 1.3 billion tons per year or $680 billion. With about 10% of the world’s population chronically undernourished, that is shameful. Another way of looking at it is that the wasted food accounts for about 10% of green house gases.
It is amazing to me how many people who are socially tied to a particular religious organization and are either willfully ignorant of their church’s doctrine or just ignore it. I used to think that was a bad thing, but I have changed my mind. That is what this post is all about.
It looks like the impeachment hearing are headed toward an end before Christmas. But, as usual I have a contrarian attitude toward that schedule. That is what this post is all about.
I don’t know about you, but I just can’t seem to simply sit down in front of my computer monitor and come up with ideas for posts here at RJsCorner. In the cold weather months I post daily here, so where do all the ideas come from? That is the topic of this post.
For the life of me, I can’t understand how anyone can be hyper-sensitive to criticism but spewing it […]
I hope that most of us have an underlying desire to be a better person than we are. I also know that is not even on the radar for some. Who are you and what do you want to be? That is the topic of this post.
This post is about how religious institutions stubbornly cling to their doctrine. Religion ABSOLUTELY hate admitting they got it wrong. This post will look deeper into that and try to understand why they do that.
I have come to appreciate the work of modern sculptures. I ran across these by James Campbell entitled […]
Now before you start giving me “Financial Planner” speak I want you to listen to what I have to say.
Going forward, that’s how I am determined to stay up with this important political season. Just let the […]
I have been searching for a few days now for the perfect site to display some of my best photographs. After all those hours I have decided to get serious with Flickr… Again. That is what this post is all about.
This post will introduce yet another series for the coming weeks and months. I am determined to push today’s politics to the back burner at RJsCorner and this new series will help accomplish that. Setting that up is what this post is all about.
If we don’t know where we have been then it is likely that we will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. That is what this post is all about.
