21st century: Problems & Solutions

 

Question to myself...

 

Why a focus on Problems & Solutions

in the 21st century re a forum on

Taoism?

 

Musing to myself...

 

* Problems & Solutions are perpetual since time immemorial

 

*They have a symbiotic relationship

 

*A symbiosis of ONE in The TAO

 

*A healthy ONE ONLY ~ with lessons embraced going forward

 

*Especially with digitalization in the 21st century

 

*Why?

Hi zerostao,

 

Is COVID-19 now the referee/judge/jury

of a level playing field?

 

When a paradigm shifts ~ everything returns to zero?

 

Now the powerful FEW

need the support of

COLLECTIVE

wisdom?

Good morning zerostao,

 

Like any social entities where people converged

 

TDB will have its share of problems and solutions

 

Post "pandemic" ~ how will TDB look upon itself?

On 1 October 2021 at  TDB...

 

MODERATOR MESSAGE---AND I USUALLY DO NOT MAKE PUBLIC MY MODERATING COMMENTARY; I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER OF THIS FORUM GOING ON TWELVE YEARS.

THIS IS THE FIRST INSTANCE I AM AWARE OF WHERE ONE MEMBER QUOTES ANOTHER MEMBER, THEN EDITS THE ORIGINAL CONTENT OF THAT QUOTED POST. 

I REQUEST ADMIN REVIEW OF THIS REPORT AND MY DECISION TO ASSIGN TWENTY WARNING POINTS, NEVER TO EXPIRE.

BANNED.

Post "pandemic" ~ a new normal?

 

The normalcy of right from wrong?

 

It takes two (or more) to fan...

PEACE

Good morning zerostao,

 

There is mirth in the above quote and I trust nothing will be hidden

 

The last post re the thread in question pertains to ~

 

th?id=OIP.j3jOFaloOUou-19UytKgmAHaFf&pid=Api&P=0&w=231&h=172

 

In the "othering" thread, I have shared ~

'Real power that can (re)solve a problem  is not a pretext.'

 

The said last post is not a pretext

 

It has the right text in the right context

for peace to prevail

 

I have PM one bum on the thread thus - but to no avail...

Stay cool and believe in SILENCE.

 

With the said last post, the thread in question is now ~

 

RIP

 

Thank you for the last post

Certainly, excellent advice, thank you. 

Having guts is a start. Integrity and capability are essential.

did you know in the movie From Here To Eternity----Bugler Private Robert E Lee Prewitt out of Kentucky, transferred from fort Shafter to the rifle company at Schofield Barracks. Oahu?

Prewitt was a boxer of some renown and his new Captain wanted Prewitt to fight on his team. Prewitt refused, he had blinded a friend in a fight and other hard realities of "winning". By refusing to fight, Prewitt faced hard knocks at every turn. Soldiers  were offered promotions to pick fights with Prewitt, and facing all kinds of dirty tricks, snares, pitfalls were set in his path. He endured and prevailed and then, December 7, 1941 arrived.

 

in the box is a combined message from Tokyo & Kentucky

The context that I found this cartoon in was a discussion on marketing and communications and the idea of FOMO and how that kind of attitude is unhelpful. The person who shared it suggested that FOMO as a motivator in a time of feeling more chaotic and stressful is not helpful and that we could use a more thoughtful and genuine pace. This is the first time I have heard the word Plodder and I had just assumed it meant someone who was not in a big rush or over striving or some such. Not a person who is experiencing crisis or trauma, just someone not striving after some form of overconsumption.
