You Distracted Me and Disrupted What I Was Thinking

Remind Me Later

There are reasons why we let things distract us. This is if we know it or not. When a thing distracts us, it can be good or it could be bad. It all depends on our thoughts. If a thing distracts you when you have good thoughts, it is not good. If a thing distracts you, when your thoughts are not good it is a good thing. What you do next determines the outcome. When we find a thing to be attractive to us, a connection has been made. It is by way of a preference that we have. And it is a thing we like that has a strong pull. You must decide what it means to you. Our preferences are based on how we view the wants in our life. They are subject to change as our mind does.

What distracts some the most is when they think of what others might think of them. Then they try to change things about themselves. They try to change how they look, how they dress and really by how they live and go about their day. A Change in makeup will not change who you are. The Self is your makeup. It is the soul of a person, it is who you are and it does not change. New makeup is not what you need. An overhaul of how you think and how you feel is what you need. How we feel will change how we act and view the world around us.

Let how you act be the face that you show the world. Do not let how you look speak for you. It is only meant to be a compliment to who you are. Makeup and a getup will not keep you up. When how you act does not match your inner Self, it creates pressure. You have to try to act the way you look. The Self can only come out when the outside is in. How you feel, then, depends on how you look and it grows with time. It is how you think that does not allow you to be the real you. We have done too much when what we do cause us to act and look like who we are not.

There are things that disrupt the flow of our thoughts. We rather they did not. They do not distract from what we do, these things disrupts what we are doing. Disrupt and distract are not the same. They are not of equal magnitude. One is merely being interfered with. The other is to have your attention drawn away from what you are doing. Then there is a reminder, which can be useful and serve a good purpose when still needed. But when not can be a disruption. It depends on if it was turned on when it should have been turned off. This will happen when we let ourselves be reminded still, when we no longer need to be. Does not matter what you are doing; “turn it off” when there is no longer a need. An example would be if you left the alarm on when you have no reason to get up.

On a more serious note is when we allow ourselves to be reminded of things long past that serve no useful purpose in our life today. A memory from our childhood can be one of them. Though, I have found that a reminder is just what you need when you want to make sure to remember.

Classless Society The American Dream

All wealth is generated from the bottom of the human pyramid. You may find this hard to believe, even so, it is true. Money circulates by the purchase of goods and services. So the most has to be purchased by those who purchase the most, and that would be the masses. And in this category, you have the lower and middle groups of earners. This includes the poor. The wealthy produces more wealth that very seldom trickle back down. There are a number of our institutions among this group that come to mind. One in particular is easy to recall if you think for a moment. Where ever you give up your money and see little to no return is a true example.

The working class/lower class  (http://news.msn.com/us/more-americans-identify-themselves-as-lower-class)supports the upper class. Without the base, there would be no pyramid, no wealth. As much as you may not want to think about it, with the system in place there has to be a worker/consumer class, and the means of production. But we are not all that different. Humans as well as other life organisms have a hierarchical system of existence. What you see today though, cannot continue. More and more the workers are in China, India and Mexico just to name a few countries. And the consumers are, you guessed it, here in USA.

The money class does not care where the base is, as long as it is there and low maintenance. Now do not get me wrong, money is good but not all will have it, for long, before it makes its way to the top. That is where you will have to be to keep it. Credit and from paycheck to paycheck will not do it. So, what does this all mean? I know what it means to me, only you can decide what it means to you. It takes a large base to support the top. Without the working class, who would do the work? What it all really means is that the working class and lower class is actually the same when it comes down to it. There is a thin line if any at all.

Right and Wrong It Is Just Black and White

There Is a Reason Why We Know That It Is Wrong Before We Know It Is Right. It Hurt. — James R. Yarbrough

We were not put on this earth to hurt ourselves or anyone else. A thought such as this does not come from a good place. It is not the way to think. When we think right, we feel right. We will then do right and no wrong can come from right. I had to learn that the wrong of someone else does not make my wrong right. Two wrongs are still wrong. There are two forces in our lives of which we have control. They are the forces of right and wrong. This you know only if you are taught. If not, how you act will tell you so. It is a painful lesson to learn on your own. Changing what is right will not make what is right better. You can do better as long as it is still right. We change what is wrong to make it right. First, we have to know the truth and then we have to learn to live with it.

Doing the wrong thing but thinking it is right is wrong. Doing the wrong thing and knowing it is not right is wrong. The result is the same for both. How we think is what tells it all. It is still wrong. When we change the way we think the results will change. Wrong things can happen when you do right. They will not come from doing right. It will come from the wrong done by someone else. Our thoughts are our energy and are what drives us to think. Thoughts drive our beliefs. They drive how we feel and speed us toward our goals. Thought is what makes life work for us. Without it what would we think. The end of thought means there is no more. Life, as we know it is over. The brain no longer works. It is dead.

The right thing done the wrong way will not succeed, just as the wrong thing cannot be done right. You can be right, though look as if you are wrong by those who are not right. It does not mean that you are wrong, and they are right, they are still wrong. We should let no one turn us away from what we know. There is no “little white lie” no shades or degrees of right and wrong. They are what they are. We do not have to prove we are right, just be right. To make a change to what is right will not make a thing that is right better. It will not be improved on. If it is right, it is not wrong.

You are the one to decide what is right or wrong for you. As we all must do, you have to live with what you decide. When we have done the right things, it does not mean all the right things are done. Trying to do the right thing is good. To do it is better. We must put forth the effort until all things that can be done right, are. When you do it right you will feel right. It is then that you will know how much better it is than what it was. You cannot be caught doing the right thing. How can you do a thing wrong when you know how to do it right? The answer is in you. But here is a clue. When you truly know right from wrong you will no longer do wrong, until then do what you can.
