The cause before the effect


Ever hear of cause’n’effect before?

It is a theory.  Don’t ask me how or by whom, the great idea expounded to everyone’s great, deep, understanding ::….. either spiritually or mathematically, that for every action their is a reaction.  Get it?  I’m trying to get the great stuff outta here, which drown out the bad stuff.  My dad would always ask us:  “what’s the pay off?”  I don’t know where that came from, really.  Was it just amazing vision and understanding to determine that is the defining question by which all persons should be able to answer when struggling with a decision:  “what’s the pay off”.  Kind of like what someone else say:  “what’s the worst that can happen? Now, tell me what is the best that could happen?

They say that you should blog at least 5 days a week if you want to make any tremors in the stratosphere.  I’m hard pressed to sit down and write.



No shortage of ideas.  Sometimes I think I need a funnel and sieve to drain all the ideas billowing out.  Each area I examine where my interests are.  I haven’t decided yet, what is the apple of my eye.  Yet.  I’m honing in on some fascinating self-discovery.
Take a look at yourself inside.  I mean deep, deep inside.  And, answer these questions to yourself, privately, so that only you can hear, yet spoken aloud.  


What are your answers for:


* Regardless of religion, would you end up at the Pearly Gaits or hanging in between, floating …. 


* Have you ever killed anything or anyone?


* Have you ever betrayed your mother or treated her unjust?


*Do you think you are selfish?


*How are you selfless?

In a quick reaction, answer the most instinctively honest that you can.

a) i am jealous of someone else?

b) i am mad at somebody else?

c) i have regrets about somebody else?

d) i know i could have tried harder but?  what? ___________is your excuse?

e) i don’t treat my body as though it were a vessel for health and longevity?

f) i spend money recklessly?

g) i hate my job, boss, husband, wife, brother, sister, Mother, Father?

           (You’re hopeless if you said child! Give up already!)

h) i am mean to other people, kids, animals, bugs, nature, or the environment?

i) i disregard authority.  i have committed a crime.   i have stolen or lied?

j) i say one thing, and then do the opposite?

k) i don’t cherish, be faithful, protect my wife? protect my husband’s heart?

l) i don’t do more than my share, i complain about others, i make up excuses?

m) my, me, myself, mine are the only thing i care about?

n) i live with fear, abandonment, hurt, violence from someone else?

o) i care about others long before myself, i am gullible, i am too ___________

           (tall, short, fat, skinny, old, young, shy, bad, unworthy, unhygienic)?

p) people have given up on me? people don’t care about me? people have abandoned me?

q) i question authority?  i question the “cause” before i start on the “effect”?

A writer, a blogger, a seeker, a finder; discovering nuances that are unique to those born between 1960 and 1965 .... I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender &or identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing. Everyone is famous in their own world:: having the starring role.
