I am conducting a research project about compassionate values.
There are so much problems in today society. Even coaching programs have problems. For example, people are so much driven into the term “success” that coaching programs out there take that advantage to sell the term “success” equals to “get rich”. The more people seek for success the more they signs up for expensive programs just to find themselves making coaches richer and participants never get that success.
I wanted to change that. Success must be meant something that makes a person look into themselves more often than the money success matters.
I set up the project, but my thoughts and brainstormed idea is way too much. I have about more than 900 pages of my journal for over 15 years of my thoughts. I am going to make the project readable. That requires a lot of helps in the development process.
I hope my work will contribute to the open content.
I need the fund to hire writers and artists, renting library spaces for production meetings. This initiating process for the project helps make the project proficient.
Technology gives us convenience and comfort, intelligence of materials are more innovative. Our ways of life is more meaningful. We have so many choices for fun, happiness, mobility, communication, and interaction. The progress gets better for our condition.
It is more convenience of everything, that are supposed to make our lives easier. Perhaps, those means we are experiencing are deceiting us. Accessible comforts become more widely available, features we don’t need are overwheming us. News things come with more expenses. Higher means of features and pleasures too. These desires cause us higher expectation for working harder so that we earn more and pay for them.
It becomes more complicated again, it is riskier for our social securities, social issues that becoming more of concern because a simply way of life is no where you can fit in.
Choice For A Home, Shell, Or Cubical Commodity Of Debt
Once before, you have choice to live in the outer city, dream of fresh foods, and local organics. But as you would do so, cause you harder life, that many cannot handle. We move to cities, we migrate to metropolis centers of the world, we do every possible effort to work in another city, another country that hope to give us higher income and take care of our family. That alone, we create higher demand for energy consumption and natural resources excavations for city developments. And yet, that pushes further to the financial system, people trade for real estate developments.
Those housing affordabily no longer easy to life, because they are no longer become traditional mean for shelter, but we live in a shell. A shell that has interest, a product of investment that we pay high for rent, and their owners pay high for interests, they use them as investment products. We live in a commodity of debt that supposed to be just meant as a home.
Concerns for Sustainable Environment and Weather Migration
The weather isn’t normal. Global warming and new wave of heat migration is coming.
On ordinary life basis. We are busy with economic concerns, we tend to forget that our affordability for longterm on this planet has become more of a problem. Social stability are supposed to get better, but here we are in same old global conflict and everyday problematic between us and our environment. Natural sustainability are becoming burdened as our population grow. It is the over consumption that hurts our habitat.
The concerns has become too much, that are beyond our hearts and minds with courage to look into the depth of these issues. Even if we care about them, we feel that such problems are too much for what our life can contribute to solve those problems. This is the complexity of this modern world we are living by.
There is a relationship of individual with society and natural world. As a consumer, we consume everything beyond the natural resource can supply us. A social dilemna for status quo has create my temptations that a person can easily fall to debt. If one is unable to manage those temptations, the person could never get off debt and cause many hazard to environment for over consumption. The phase or failure, challenge, or true happiness depends on how much one is able to understand controlled necessities and loss of consumer quotience.
About our consumption.
Consumption, means that we use natural resource for necessities, and pleasure. We produce them, consume them, and claim ownership.
We use every mean for the expense of mother nature.
How much can we consume?
How much can we afford?
How much can we own?
I have concerns for our world today.
Human population is growing most rapidly than ever in human evolution. What is going to happen if we consume too much and we cannot manage to sustain our natural resource?
Because of our over population, and over consumption rate, the natural world soon cannot be able to sustain. We need works and efforts, solutions be put into this formula.
There are three primary entities that are eminent to our existence.
Each of our individuality
The natural world
In this perspective, there are three entities, our individuality, mother nature, and our society are interacting to support our existence.
Normally, we only care what happens to our conscinousness, we take concerns about what happens to us for granted. We do not think much about how much we rely on our environment and our society to nuture our condition. We do not think much about keeping them in balance, simply because the problem isn’t within our personal ability to solve problems that we consider they are a social problem, and mother nature’s cycle. These are social problems, environmental problem, and personal problem interchanged that can lead us going to perished.
Yet, if we cause the problem, we can fix them, altogether social problem, environmental problems, and personal problem at a personal level by each of us. We are responsible to look into depth of how these entities are related.
I am working on a blog. I am looking for volunteers to join me.
This is a blog project that I talk about common issues in our world and how we can live through them. Ideas that we can share for practical use in everyday event so that we can reduce common problems. These practical ideas that we respect and within each of everyone ability, such as applying traditional principles of ethic for the better of society, environment, and eachother.
I need volunteers to give me feed back, and editing my grammar mess. If you are that person who cares about curiousity, creativity, and highly respect for interest in ethic, you might find my work interesting that you can read on. Please contact me to learn more about this project.

Virtue and kindness for higher ritual respect.
Talented to be general, lesser.. then be trooper.
Everyone is special, do not despair.
Higher moral, less piety.
Rich, talented, but narrowed mind, no good for mutual value.

Meditation isn’t mindfullness, it is emptiness.
Meditation isn’t forceful focus, it is to let go of forced concentration (distraction) but to control that distraction and let the mind work by itself. Meditation isn’t inspiration, neither wishfull good thinking (that is pray).
The effort of good will activity is mindfullness.
