Face Book – Is it A Curse for An Idle Mind?

Having just finished an article brought on by my reading on this forum, I returned to it, to see what others were up to, and here we go again. “I found this personally helpful!” said Heather, and article on Yin and Yang. She had left her front door open for the day, and guess what, I just walked in.

Now Yin and Yang is beyond my comprehension, not really having studied the subject, or for that matter wondering what I would gain from it. The article recommended by her became set reading, the conflicting Yin and Yang had me thinking. “Men can't exist without women” what of all the unmarried men, would they agree with that? Man needs a woman, or he would not exist, who would give birth to him, certainly not another man, to damn painful I would think. So yes, to exist he needs a woman to give birth to him, is this what the statement means?

Heat can not exist without coolness? My thought, coolness is the lack of heat, heat can not exist without something to heat it. Coolness can exist without heat, if its heated it is no longer cool, therefore this statement had me confused. Heat, is a physical application by something to a body to increase its temperature, as is cool a physical application to decrease, or for that matter, a natural returning to a stable temperature of a heated body.

Light can not exist without darkness? But darkness is a lack of light, it is a non entity, light a wave length emitted by an object creating it, switch it off and you have dark. How can dark make light? This all became beyond me, time to admit I would need to further read the basics of Yin and Yang. Please understand I'm not decrying the subject, but merely admitting my lack of understanding, the curse of an idle mind. Time to move on, I thought.

Ah.... Maria's Mediterranean diet food, this will be less confusing, and it was, a gain for my stomach, reducing it's size whilst enjoying food. Good one I thought, paging down further, Chris, my friend and thought provider, his friend was smart, only onions made him cry... so Chris tossed a coconut at his face, that caused a laugh I could expect that from him.

Then Face book had me rolling in laughter, a sign up for a free “cougar dating website” if I joined whom would I meet, a seventy-five year old woman? I pictured the date, with me aiding her with her walker, picking up her false teeth if they fell out. Our discussion over dinner, wrinkle creams, how to live without “Botox”, the aches and pains of arthritis, where to buy the best walkers and this had me laughing such, that my wife thought I'd busted a gut.

Having woken this morning, blank, writers block with not an idea to follow, Face Book had certainly changed all that, even my mood of submission changed. I thought of an article titled “Writers Block Affecting You? - Change on up to Face Book.

Maybe we need the yin to fully understand the yang? Enduring darkness to be grateful for the light?

Caused a bit of an uproar this did, but I must admit I enjoyed the reaction, you often wonder if the article is being read, and one or two of these proves they are.

Hi Kim, I'm going to be gone off for a while, my computer program is nearing the end, testing and writing manuals will keep me pretty busy for a while but will check in now and again. Thanks for the look in.

Up to the middle of the article, Christopher said it all! And as for the dating website, mission accomplished. It got all the help it could get. Isn't it something to write about how does it work these days? it is an interesting phenomenon. Don't you think? And Golfspice, you should sign up, you have no idea what you can come up to!

Perhaps I should sign up for Facebook after all - I didn't know it offers so much! I would be really interested in... a cure for writers block.

As long as I don't come home to find both you and Rob in my living room! Sheesh... leave the door open for one day!!! FB isn't essential but there is a nice little circle of us there saying things that are relatively off topic to all the SA articles! More general and casual about life and also other endeavours such as squidoo or personal websites.

Maybe I'll take a look after this weekend's golf, which is just as time consuming as the internet. Thanks for the encouragement.

Rob, you hit my button--O, Yin and Yang, how many hours could I talk about you? If Einstein proved that everything is relative, then all relationships are a matter of degree--colder, higher, bigger, etc. Darkness is the opposite of Light, as well as the absence of Light. Cold is the opposite of Heat as well as the absence of Heat. And Men and Women gets even weirder: we are the same (both human) but we are opposites in Gender--and even stranger, our goals are opposed--Men want to hunt, Women want to nurture--which makes our brains work differently enough that we can consider each other's gender's thought-processes to be flakey! When comparing the Occident with the Orient, we find a heavy emphasis on 'being Good' in the West, and an emphasis on 'being in Balance' in the East. But we Westerners are simply overlooking duality as a part of goodness--goodness is partly a matter of avoiding evil, being True is involved in not being False. Many Americans get rejuvenated by learning about yoga, meditation--even the Kama Sutra--and that excitement is usually due to the belated enlightenment that Good and Evil are not just opposites, but two sides of the same thing.

I thought I might hit some ones button with that, looks like I did. Have no idea about it never read anything or talked to anyone about it. Just seemed a good thing to get a comment or two. Enjoy Bud, I'm going to be around less as I am now going to be writing all the manuals for my program, its going to keep me busy, but will look in when I can.

OH YES Christopher! You NAILED it! (Sorry to shout.... got a bit excited!) It's the same with 'negative' emotions. They all have their balance (that is different for each person beyond just what the 'word' may be) or what I call the 'flip side of the coin'. Many times when releasing negative emotions with a client they were unwilling to release the negative emotion until they considered what they would have instead. These things can be out of balance but both must be available to be valid and create a whole. This 'stuff' is so exciting! Gets me going every time! lol I like that there is only the 'absence of'. This is why God (for those who believe in HIm) can be said to be 'all things' and on the flip side of the coin there is an absence of God. Deep thoughts!
