Suggestion Saturday: July 9, 2011

Here is this week’s list of blog posts, comic strips, poems, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

The Perfect Life Myth. Also known as: you can have it all but you cannot have it all at once.

Goodbyes. The problem with saying goodbye. I’ve never liked saying it whether the separation is for now or forever.

The World of Seven Billion. Wow, apparently earning $12,196 or more per year earns you the label high income level. One day I hope to see the cost of living for each society taken into account for this sort of thing. Yes, $12,196 is a larger number than, say, $995 but a family of four in a western country like the US or Canada would be extremely hard-pressed to survive on that amount of money for a year.

Solve. Don’t complain, go out and do something to fix the world.

Online Meditation Timer. I haven’t meditated regularly in a long time but this is prompting me to get back into the habit. Being disconnected from time was one of (many) reasons why I haven’t kept this habit up and a timer is a good way to ease into stilling my mind. If you try this time let me know what you think in the comment section!

What have you been reading? I haven’t read any books worth recommending this week but I do like this quote:

When people give you advice, they’re really just talking to themselves in the past. ~Austin Kleon

    Well thanks for the linky link 🙂  

  3. I have been reading The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Power and Profit by Joel Bakan.  It doesn’t paint a pretty picture, but it does offer a very good explanation of what’s going on in the world today.

    Some really fun links! Great poem…didn’t realize I was considered ‘high income’…I didn’t turn my porch light on…I think I could benefit from meditation if I could sit still long enough…and love the quote-funny & true!
