How We Might Prevail over An Uncompromising Congress Tea Party


Triadic Thinking Applied to The Present
Top Image One

FIRST
(A seeming continuation of the same
impotence that creates a monotonous sense of stasis
and ruination of our economy and polity)
Middle Image Two

SECOND
(The existence within Congress of a recalcitrant force
whose object is to disable government
regardless of consequences and its isolation as
the force to be overcome)

Bottom Image Three

THIRD
(Since there is a majority
that does not desire the destructive outcome
our effort must  be
with open eyes to
to note the truth of the above
and flag its minority status
and drive home the
precedence of a winning majority
over party politics)

Tao of John 12 - Miracles are no big deal But misinterpretation kills


See All Tao Of John Posts at Pinterest

+

The Seer knew a truth that few could see
Abundance can be achieved easily
To make do and to share in simple ways
Instead he was beset by peoples' praise

+

Science at its best
spawns miracles
like second nature
no big deal
So too the Seer
but the people fail to see
This blindness is persistent
it survives
it spawns our world of
inequality

Triadic Philosophy Stacked Images Helpfulness Selfishness Mindfulness



Triadic philosophy builds out infinitely
from the initial triad
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
using threes (triads)
to denote a progression 
from sign (word)
to blunt truth, or limitation or qualification
to hypothetical action
(actuality
guess
attempt
a stab at creating
a rule or a habit)
Seeing life as this seemingly endless
elaboration of 
the way we actually do things

THIS IMAGE STACK

First
Helpfulness
(Helpfulness is an ontological value
along with democracy and tolerance
By inference it is understood to emerge
from the penumbra we call Reality or being or existence
(what rises always in the mind)
Helpfulness denotes a spectrum of actions that are
social and communal and ultimately universal )

Second
Selfishness
(Selfishness is actually the end result
of nominalist and binary thinking
limited by seeing the self
as a sort of be and end all
This does not accord with reality
but it acts as a powerful brake on helpfulness
and cannot be dispatched with ease)

Third
Mindfulness
(Mindfulness is the child of will in the service
of ontological values
It represents the working
hypotheses we create
to move beyond the double bind of
helpfulness hobbled by selfishness.
It is an assertion of what we might call self-control
but with a patina of irony and humor to
acknowledge the inevitable
fallibility of all human designs)
