Shooting Victim Help

Criminologists and psychologists who spoke with The Enquirer believe mass shootings could be prevented with more effort to intercede in suicide, which causes about 45,000 deaths a year across the country. But progress will come, they said, when the gun-rights community participates in suicide-prevention efforts.

STRAIGHT TALK FROM THE CNBC MONEY EDITOR


Back in the “good old days,” you worked until you reached 65. You had a party, got a gold watch, said farewell to your fellow employees and never looked back. You had a pension, Social Security benefits and some savings, and could fund a reasonably comfortable retirement. Sadly, those days are gone and they are never coming back.

Pension plans have given way to 401(k) plans, and there are concerns that Social Security will no longer be a sure bet. To make matters more “interesting,” many Americans are retiring with small nest eggs and little income to live on. In fact, 80% of “average American workers” said they “cannot save enough on their own to guarantee a secure retirement,” according to a National Institute on Retirement Security survey. Since knowledge is power and information is liberating, the CNBC personal finance team will continue to supply our audience with high-level, reliable and useful content to help them make smart retirement investment and planning decisions. This will help them generate the income they’ll need in those Golden Years.

As I age I find myself being just a little bit more retired each day. Annually during the 4th calendar quarter, just before the winter holidays I take a VERY close look at where I place my energy & focus. As well as I am aging so is society & business. I am beginning to not recognize where things are heading, so usually every year at this time I REDUCE my prior commitments, closing some things off completely, and explore new horizons.  Retirement came to me as an evolution, certainly well planned for in my younger years, but I never had an exact finish line established. I guess the best description I can muster; is that I fell over the finish line and life retired me  —Editor

The following will detail the aforementioned statement as best I can, whereby I view this current state of retirement a decline of my participation in history which somehow must be changed to continue contributing and shared efforts for the future way. HOWEVER, first I want to describe “Connection Behavior,” the details of this topic can be found in its own post @ Connection Behavior.

The number of people living to 90-years or older more than doubled in the U.S. from 720,000 in 1980 to 1.5 million in 2010 and may swell to 9 million by 2050, according to a 2011 report from the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. National Institute on Aging.

Most are redefining retirement to fit their own needs and interest. Finding it impossible to predict the future way, many are learning to manage the future. Solid savings, low overhead, conservative investment portfolio, healthy lifestyle all help define a better more robust retirement. Mostly you must be nimble to embrace change and modify your lifestyle to better align with challenges. Some love to travel, others keep busy with part-time work learning, or business. Keeping active with hobbies or joining clubs can be rewarding. Many find the online world a good way to keep the mind active without much travel.

Retirement for me personally has become merely another chapter of life, with perhaps an alteration of the prior chapters of my life, and retiring or reducing those parts which have been somewhat completed or I just don’t have the energy or capacity to perform any longer. It appears that we tend to learn from our personal history, however we do make that history a little bit better as we carry with us into the future. The past to me is somewhat vague, I want to learn from my past, to reroute the not-so-good events and place as much energy as I can going forward on creating new EXCELLENT events for me and others.

One of the best features of retirement for me is to NOT be locked into a day-by-day EXACT routine. Presumably retirement describes at least some sort of releasing the wage-earning and people-rearing requirement of each day. Thus freeing ( FREEDOM ) me from the decades of day-in/day-out reactions to family, friends and work.

The selfishness now of not giving my all moment-by-moment to others, has now become precious to me – my own personal remaining moments of living time are mine to use wisely.

I have chosen to use some of these precious personal remaining moments to mentor my friends & family – FRAMILY. Young or old, either gender, friend or the most personal family member can benefit from mentoring. I learned a lot of what NOT to do from the mentoring of my elders, and that kept me from the pitfalls of many severe disasters. So I will discuss the pitfalls & benefits in the following of mentoring friends & family, obviously the entire human race is out there and a possible candidate for mentoring, but that requires a more robust infrastructure to implement and I will stick to the discussion of friends & family in this particular post.

One big hurdle to jump is the Direct Connection Behavior issue. As you leave the daily workforce, and your children become adults and live their own life sometimes thousands of miles away from you, and your friends are not expecting you at a moments notice to join them for lunch since either you or they (or both) have moved away from each other – you must establish a way to keep a Direct Connection Behavior with only intermittent 1-on-1 personal meetings, telephone call, letter, email or text interactions. Thankfully technology can provide some solutions to keep us all in touch, but the interactions with these people which you had direct minute-by-minute contact with fades and you must do your best to be aware of the communication changes and gaps of understanding or appreciation of the communication. I realize many of my remaining framily members are now much better at providing me feedback, so I can understand whether or not they feel there is a benefit or if they rather be just social or perhaps fade away completely. I have experienced about a 50% reduction in the contact with my heretofore daily interactions, but clearly established going forward a mutual benefit of those that appreciate the mentoring.

My guess is that just a very small behavior change penetrating into the soul of the unsuspecting, from the thoughtful mentoring efforts can change the world.

Capitalist-Extremists

Capitalist’s can bring great innovation to the general public’s Main Street using the tools of Capitalism. Interesting to note a widespread discrepancy and unclear inconsistent usage of the term ‘Capitalist-Extremists

Some vague references found on GOOGLE searches, even less within trends analysis – for our usage we are seeking a clear reference for capitalism efforts which have run-a-muck.

The antithesis has been labeled ‘anti-capitalist extremists’ by Glenn Beck’s ‘Make America Great Again’ statement in 2011 referring loosely to the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement.

Also… “Moral Capitalism” is being referenced; whereby the way to a moral capitalism is not self-reform, but the USA Congress building new systems — of labor protection, taxation, education, environment. Rules can make capitalism moral.

So in lieu of anything solid, our Posts will relate to capitalism used within an extreme sense – since we all definitely have our own opinions and believe it’s necessary in today’s times & culture, to clearly be aware of all extremes especially a Capitalist – Extremist. Common sense dictates a solid well-balanced capitalist, keeping the economy in growth while protecting the complete welfare of the government’s citizens. Ferreting out the identity of those potential extremists should assist in mitigating any potential tragedy to capitalism.

Zen & TheFutureWay

Zen is a branch of Mahayana Buddhism originated in China, when Buddhists were introduced to Taoists…

 

When asked what the difference is between the major strands of Buddhism – [Theravada, Mahayana (Mahayana includes Zen) and Vajrayana], they are like cakes with different icings: on the outside the traditions may look and taste different, but when you go deeply into them, you find the same taste — the taste of freedom…

Zen Essence of Research OnLine

“TheFutureWay of Inner Peace” somewhat similarly is a branch of FutureManagement originated in the United States, when the businessperson seeking to balance the confrontations and conflicts of making a living in the capitalist world was introduced to living a robust western life grounded in peace of mind with Zen…

Working with deep internal positive thoughts and subtle monitored emotions for “TheFutureWay of Inner Peace” – with anxiety just like anything which impacts our lives by stifling our goals, this too shall pass and we will move forward towards “TheFutureWay of Inner Peace.”

The International Insight Meditation Center of Oregon, U.S.A. is a quiet, peaceful retreat center located on 12.5 acres off state Highway 126. The center is open for daytime use and hosted its first formal retreat October 13 and 14, 2017

Buddhist meditation center opened west of the city of Redmond, situated in Central Oregon ten miles north of Bend, Oregon – Insight Meditation Center 805 NW 95th St, Redmond, OR 97756 – Facility offers meditation, tranquility on a rural property west of Redmond, Oregon.

Buddhist monks walk along dirt paths, tend to gardens and meditate under maple trees or inside a house next to a gold statue of Buddha.

Break Free

What do you want to ‘Break Free‘ from?

Thomas Roberts (@ThomasARoberts)
I waited over 20 years to report my sexual abuser.
Because I was 14.
Because it was my hero.
Because it was my priest.
Because I thought I’d be expelled.
Because I feared no one would believe me.
Because I thought suicide was easier than telling 1 person
