When I feel bad, frustrated, upset, angry, down. I often find it good to don't. When I just don't know what to do; I don't.
I don't recall. I don't imagine. I don't think. I don't examine. I don't control.
I'm not sure how I don't. I'm sure I don't don't perfectly. I do know that when I intend to don't, I feel better.
I have found the following helpful:
  • Don't recall: let go of what has passed.
  • Don't imagine: let go of what may come.
  • Don't think: let go of what is happening now.
  • Don't examine: don't try to figure anything out.
  • Don't control: don't try to make anything happen.
  • Rest: Relax right now and rest.

Haiti First.

Haiti is one of the two republics on the island of Hispaniola. The other is the Dominican Republic.
Hispaniola lies about 100 miles from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Haiti has an area of about 11,000 square miles and a population of about 8,400,000 which is about 95% black. You may get more information of this sort at . The Dominican Republic is a bit larger and has a population which is about 3/4 Creole.
Haitians created the first black led republic in the word. It is the second republic created in the New World. Looking at Haiti's history it seems that from its inception until very recently that most leaders of the Western world have intended to crush it or to keep it well ground down.

Even recently it seems that the UN supported the US in depriving the people of Haiti of their most popular elected president.

The U S blockaded Haiti from the day it freed itself from its colonial masters.

Thoughts About "Govern" Post

It seems that most individuals take some pleasure in governing their bodies to some extent.

A body politic may be called a single, whole, organized gathering of human beings.

To rule myself, It seems I must get myself together and get organized. Guess I'd benefit by reviewing what I know about the nature of organization.

The art of civil administration is called politics. 'Politics' is used to refer to the affairs of the body politic. The things we do as citizens is called politics.

As individuals and in groups we are guided, directed, and steered through life in various ways. We sometimes attend to those ways which seem to work for us.

We mostly agree that we are not completely rudderless.

Ibn Khaldun

Ibn Khaldun is one of those who brought Arabic scholarship and wisdom to the West along with the learning of the Persians and Greeks.

Western scholars have called him the father of Sociology and the initiator of contemporary demography.

British historian Arnold J. Toynbee called Ibn Khaldu's main historical work, "the greatest work of its kind that has ever yet been created by any mind in any time or place."

British philosopher, Robert flint wrote of Khaldun that, "As a theorist of history he had no equal in any age."
