Culture / The Silent Conspiracy Of Distractions by philoedu(m): 2:09pm On Aug 05
[left]The story of the silent conspiracy of distraction is but a story of a unique existence palpable but not daunting. But only just revealing and not indicting one but of a courageous life lived by a man of a unique personality in unique circumstances. Unfortunately, it is of the confused generation of our time. It is a story of an exciting man in a hostile environment that eventual left him speechless with the confused reality of the perennial question of to be or not be – which is the question. It is of a man coming from afar, who had a taste of what it means to laugh and shear tears at the same time.

He did it not for the fun of it but for a deeper reason inexplicable in itself due to the circumstances that provoked such experience in unusual circumstances. He is not a closed minded individual but an open minded, who know the importance and value of the benefit of experience. With such awareness, it has become his principle of influence that emanated from consistency and commitment in its wildest sense in his own modi operandi. He is but of what one might called the Amazonian, a realist with unequal affinity with deep sense of specifics not in general but of a conscience of the power of extraordinary analysis of the trends of things. He may not be a perfect man but he doesn’t lack that inclination to view reality in their face values with optimism and disposition.

He has always come to view life as a journeying rightly or wrongly, through which everyone is saddle with the responsibility to struggle to carry his/her own cross, without falling by the way side for whatever reason. But as it plays out, he ran into what might be called the -Charlie brown Character, unique in its own affinities, which as he tries assisting along the way with all his good intention, simply was kicked in the ash. During which the moment he could manage to get back to his senses, it was rather too late and was already taken off guide. In such moment of his good intention, he has either fallen flat in the process with an endless staggering without stability or he has falling completely laying with his stomach flattened on the ground. Such that if you ever had such a falling experience you need not be told of what it means to look like it, with stomach flat on the ground. Don’t get this narrative misunderstood, Charlie brown may not have expected the level of which his friend went through and still going through after their encounter.
With such good intention always on the side of anyone irrespective of what is taking place, Charley Brown come to view his action as legitimate and normal in an environment unknown to him of the winner takes all.
Therefore, being held responsible for what is happening to him is completely out of the question. After all, his friend had come a long way before they meet. In fact everyone does it, except that it does varies in degree and circumstances. By the way who is Charlie Brown According to the World Encyclopedia of Comic, he is an epitome of the great American unsuccessful story, in that he fails virtually in every thing he does. Therefore, along the line, he become a lovable loser, a child possessed by endless determination and hope and with unequal disposition of empathy toward anything and everything but who ultimately come to be dominated by his insecurity and a permanent case of bad luck. Often, being taken advantage of by everyone who comes his way. The same is true, he often come to be taking undue advantage of at any convenient moment and victimized by other characters. Needless to add, that getting blamed when something goes wrong at any given time, even when he is not at fault but just for the sake of the right moment to victimized him due to his nature. The like of him is rarely incomprehensible and unexpected in time of uncertain confusing environment in his generation.

But in an environment where material object is placed in high value more than an individuals, as the only sole determinant of life, even if it has to be of a shot duration, of which Charlie brown will always be there. He is a representative of everyone going through a hard time, and in particular, when one feel like nothing is ever going right for them. But he has come to cultivate an attitude of defiance of hardship to always refuses to give up, no matter how daunting such situation maybe. The same is true, that he remain an epitome of forward looking character, such that in the face of depression, he was still very much optimistic and hopeful that it must one day come to pass. In fact, he has come to realize and awareness of the spirit of “always being blamed for whatever happens”. To this fact, he feels there is no one like him, of which everyone tends to mock and laugh at him, sometimes openly, except though, that he had come to devise an attitude of waving it all with the back of his mind, as it all look funny.
The spirit of a lovable loser, in its materialistic inclination, in its scale of value, always tends to place human in low level circumstances hence, since such encounter, things have never come to be the same again . This bitter experience Amazonian had with the like of Charlie brown along the way, tends to left him desolate and indifference to virtually everything around him, but not without some future lesson learnt. Meanwhile, for Amazonian due to this devastation of the so call encounter with such character, he seems to come to perceive himself as a victim of circumstances , although, no one ever made mention of it to his face, but the fact remain, there are compelling evidence to the contrary, although it could happen to anyone.
Culture / Rising Above Irrationality And Instinct. by philoedu(m): 12:25pm On Jul 27
The so call multifarious aspects of the world is intertwined, that is not possible to stand apart and claim not to shares in its fabric in bad times and in good times. We are in just what one may call a period of return to the sources, no matter what is happening.. Often, we tend to wrap our body and mind, heart and soul around our presence called the almighty self. And we feel as individuals, which we are at a relative level. But in the absolute, we remain a part of the whole we cannot do without, each uniquely tailored to play its specific part in the arena of our individual life journey.

Of cause, we come a long way to a point that we must do the needful to reflect on our disconnectedness, due to our distraction, in order to counter the movement tending to the polarization that may lead to greater conflict in not too distance future . Therefore, no chance must be given to support the questioning of the long-held truth and much-loved certainties in the face of today's mighty challenge that tends to stare humanity in the face as never before. Make no mistake, this may be political upheaval, climate change, or personal trials, but life no doubt, is banging upon our consciousness on daily bases, in an attempt to awaken us to rise to the reality of our time. The process, no doubt, may look daunting and challenging and may take time, but it nevertheless demand an urgent response towards strive to honor each step to a birth of the deepest transformation shaped by the highest truth without feeling indifference.

In this same process, we may, make mistakes, to get our hands very dirty and in the dirtiness of the human realm, with wild emotions and crazy actions. But certainly, we may need to remove our mask of deception until we recognize ourselves, let alone anyone else knowing who we are. We are in a period of what I choose to call the “concept deconstruction” that requires everyone of us to begin to question what works and what does not work, almost like what takes place in the age of reason in the 16th century which demands authenticity in our evolutionary journey. This of cause, may offend in its honesty and passion, as it challenge the religious, political and social status quo of our time. The same is true, that we answer to no one, except our creator when it comes to the truth because it is its own arbiter as it leaves nothing to stand on its awake. The time has come for the most candid honesty to muster first and foremost with ourselves to move to the inward direction as to see where we have got it all wrong.

This transformation and freedom to carry out such assignment, did ask for enough courage to transcend any abstraction in adherence to the noble demand of the scripture, if a man is to have any value in the scheme of things. The meaningful life, or value, that does not come to depend on material possession only in other to survive, but taken cognizance of the sacredness of human life. The same is true, that in the avoidance, of misplacement of concept. As it were, to defy the inability to strike the balance between what, is ontological and logical and indeed, what is spiritual and material. It must be emphasized, though, that technological progress, does not force anyone to advance, instead, it is but the very requirement of organizing a society, because, any devaluation of human life in the process comes to destroy the very foundation of the basic established order of progress. History, in all intent and purpose, cannot be ignored, and cannot cease to exist, hence, such phrase- ‘ ethical standard and tradition, remain a word to guard and a word of honor, that must be preserved because it is an embodiment of both reconciling and condemning element, in what is wrong in any system.
The same is true, that the family as an institution, and the source of any society, must not only be preserved and promoted but also must be defended from any possible misrepresentation of its true value, hence, the need for a shift value to a new level of value system of concept reconstruction. Because what is injurious to the family is also injurious to any society as an institution. Echo, the very need not to lose sight of the tremendous effort demanded from everyone in combating any form of denigration of the value and dignity of the human person of which we all are stake holder or have a shear.
This must start from the very small privilege working companions that compete on daily bases to the very law that sometimes keep an entire group marginalized and often brutalized in the mix of opulence lifestyle in the nearby quarter. What looks like a period of societal paroxysms,(meaning a sudden expression of uncontrolled emotion), definitely demands that we must be prepared to come to terms with our individual reality and the reality of our time without fear or favors for the sake of posterity of doing away with any form of injustices and oppression.
The same is true, for the sake of equity and justice, without an attitude of dominance and disputes, in an atmosphere where no one is prepared to take the first step.
It is a known fact, that no scientific research has ever brought directly an expected great discovery, rather any discovery or solution often comes to be found where it is least expected. As it were, human problems often tend to resist some theoretical solution, which often can be found when everyone is willing to shear and no longer want to oppress one another. But it is imperative not to shear away from any sense of self-criticism and lack of fair play through introspection, of which any meaningful change can always take place. If there is to be any such meaningful charge, our inner world and the outer world must come to match, coupled with an insight into the transformation of life in our evolutionary effort for our collective survival.

This write-up is for those who may desire exclusively to achieve and grow individually without the concept of disconnection, both material and spiritual well-being of life. The kind of individual who is not content to simply exist for the sake of existence. But with the sense of what one may choose to call destiny whether they are aware or not, and indeed, of the inner awareness of eschatological fulfillment of which every human being is destined, despite the pain and suffering. Such that one is meant to be a part of that solution and not the problems, of which the task-oriented individual must strive and know there is a job to be done. The same is true that just living without developing the inner resource of the heart is but the highest form of selfishness and self-deceit. Because the lack of insight is but the neglect of the heart that gives attention to other fellow human beings.

Culture / The Silent Conspiracy. by philoedu(m): 1:18pm On Jul 11
-Manzoni has come a long way and has come to the realization that, one of his old friends is but a toxic individual who misunderstood his good intention. And this gives him the idea to be more conscious most of the time of any identical individual with low level value system and with similar inclinations.

In what looks like imaginative perception, he fined himself left in a state of decomposition and speechless with an uneasy attitude behind many of the stony reserve attitude manifested toward him. But it was with the apprehension of the trends, due to incomprehension that has overtime surrounded him. However, with time, he has come to learn to embrace such attitude of indifferent since he cannot force any change and the situations but to let them run their cause of action as they deem fit .

In spite of his many setbacks, by virtue of the subtle moral affinities, he was still capable of judging correctly any complex situation. Although, the necessity was not always pleasurable for a man of his status, this he was well aware. But to save himself of the almighty worry and unfounded anxiety, he was well aware he has to flow with the trend of things as to spare himself of more mental torture.

Holding a book and merely staring in some pages without reading , has come to assist him to regain the lost sentiment of isolation necessary for any reflection and continuity of his thought, even in the mix of insufficient means and in what looks like a precarious situation. In his character, there is always certain contentment, a sort of an inborn religious placidity. It is the uncommon trait united with some level of sensitivity favorable to the quiet and habitual observation of an imperfectly animate existence of a man who have seen it all.

In the process of recovery, he still need some level of power to convey to the consciousness of the abstract and elementary impression of silence, and this he was well aware of, not lose to sight . These influences, no doubt, tend to aid the dignity of human nature and at the same time tend to act as a tranquilizer, to say the least. Whenever he encounter his fate, he looks with keen and resolute profile straight in the face, as he strive to utter some of the utterances as to fall into the central truth of human feeling.
Of cause, in sincerity with concentrated expressions of any recoiling flesh, he knew self-control was the ultimate companion at any given time. However, overtime, he learnt that every language posses its own fastidious genius that can expand with purity of its elements that must change along with the changing thoughts of the living being. His sensitivity and caution tends to pay off, as he strives to avoid over emphasis of certain emotional instinct as opposed to his intellectual background. Such background that enable him to capture most of the time the very moment of experience without descending to what he come to call the frozen formalities of every day struggle that may not be peculiar to himself.

In spite of his predicament after his encounter with the personality of Charlie Brawn, he still manage to carry on with him, in spite of that impassion contemplation of the supreme example of intuition’s ability to reach the perception of that principle of unity beyond the attainable of rational analysis alone.” Be happy” he would cry out in his moment of frustration and discouragement with what looks like a patient in labor of which for him and certainly was a condition for a greater success and forward looking a character.

One of his many set back seems to be that he was never an orator of torrential eloquences like others who have the ability to sweep every one along, even in a rushing noise and foam of great enthusiasm most people of today are so used to as an act of conformism. The same is true, that he has come to dread a high level of much argument, although, not because any level in itself of such argument would shake his faith, except, that the mere tendency to deviate from any conceptual element of objective nature of fact, often disconcert him painfully in his thought at any given time.
Such thought that one might have assumed have cohabited for so long in his mental solitude, more barren than a waterless desert; such that no living voice have ever combated and commented, talk less of an approver. In spite of his numerous setbacks, he discovered that some people still lack the basic of the spirit of imagination essential to man, that contributed to Charlie’s attitude as to make him blind by what might be called the sense of idiotic vanity that left him in state of indifference to the very awareness of his level of atrocity committed against him.

The result of such attitude is often the extreme confusion between cause and effect, manifested like most of the distinguished propagandist with impulsive bomb thrower and indeed, with an assumed affiliate in a click where in reality nothing of such exist. But the near obvious is often but the act of being possessed by an endless determination of Charlie's character in the continues mockery with no basic explication of such exasperation like a hungry man.

The basic explanation according to Manzoni, all emanated from a derivative of an exasperation that has its root from what he termed social revenge. But of cause , at something different from the ordinary passion of humanity. But it is not very far from psychological differences found among individual’s impressions where a phenomenon of distention of a hasty judgment of every event tends to take place and as order of the day. Whatever the outcome, the shadow of their evil gift have come to clog to them like the smell of a deadly drug in an old recipient of poison emptied now, useless, ready to be thrown upon a heap of rubbish of things that have served their time.

Aware of this conspiracy to distract him, he strives for prudent, convinced he could not count on any one’s emotional display of pity to the many of the contrasting attitude always of which is always of something of the ordinary like the bomb outrage. Such that for it to have any effluence and effect at all, must extend beyond the intention of a vengeance and purely destructive beyond the faintest suspicious of any object. In such peculiar process of reality, he never lose focus for any chance to become what might be called the darling of providential force vibrating beyond humanity’s frequency of consciousness.

With this attitude, he distance himself in order to make his proximity to rise above the spirit of Charlie brown , a key that will open up another dimension of what he regard as a windfall. Because he view himself in the light energy of an acrobat, balancing across space and time. Although, they makes him curls his muscle into an obedient fierce a creature, at a point, but realized, he has the primitive instinct, ready to attack any mentality and that readiness, to act of seizing any opportunity at any given moment to do the right thing.
Culture / Character And Justics. by philoedu(m): 3:24pm On Jul 03
The character can be defined as mental and moral quality distinctive to an individual, in its ideal manifestation of personality in the making. And this means that it can be made according to individual experiences, tastes, and trials.

Such that an evil character, consistently and consciously may strive toward an evil ideal and occasionally fail. But through temptation may come to yield to a good impulse to commit a noble act, completely at variance with an ideal in mind, of which, this no doubt, may only come to prove that within the breast of every individual, is that spark of divinity.
The same is true that this come to prove that because the soul of man is essentially good, often with the tendency not desire, to emulate what is constructive, noble and good in nature. It is the human will that is saddled with the responsibility to influence the natural tendency, an essential and fundamental incentive of the human soul. As it were, the character becomes the conscious code of thought, practice, emotion, and the act of which the school of personality established and through which the trait of personality tends to emulate as an ideal. In this perspective, any evil character that result from evil ideal, no doubt, tends to indicate a lack of understanding and development in the process.

In this perspective, any evil character that results from an evil ideal, no doubt, tends to indicate a lack of understanding and development in the process. Therefore, any lack of understanding of character, required to be pitied rather than censored, directed rather than confinement, assisted rather than a hindrance.
Justice, as is known, as the ultimate end of the law is considered to be justice, although, this is only true in its ideal application and enforcement of the law.
The same is true, that with compelling evidence, the contrary is the case. However, in theory, it should apply, but in practice, many come to be injured by the cause of this very law they tends to depend upon justices.
As the saying goes, the law is without conscience. And it operate upon it's theory of perfection and consequently, even when it is apparent at times that an injustice will be done to a litigant, it does not often deviate from its routing system. It will be observed that the law is often enacted and executed by man, thus, it is constantly subject to human weakness in character. Therefore, as a result of this defect of which man is liable, is the question of whether it is worthwhile, to resort to arbitration than to appeal to the law

It is not appropriate at all, morally and deficient.
Religion / The Enigma Of Self -redefination by philoedu(m): 2:42pm On Jun 22
The development of science and technology cannot actually free humanity from the obligation to ask the ultimate existential questions. And it spur us to face the most painful and sometimes, decisive struggles of those of the heart and the question of moral conscience. The contemporary man tends to have the greater need for the inner-self as well as out-self in order to know God and himself.
It is true that with such knowledge, we can nurture the sense of dignity and respect. It is through this knowledge we can also know the true meaning of the value of life and work in tandem with the sense of true freedom, justices and peace. One of the Christian truths, is not about ideology but in the recognition that without any iota of doubt, that it is the changing of the social and political reality in favor of man that cannot be confined to any rigid structure.
Therefore, the need for a deep reflection for a constant re-affirmation of the transcendental that encompass the dignity of the human person. In the evolutionary salvific journey of man, there has been numerous example of the advocate of a genuine emancipation of humanity. The emancipation that inspire, not a passive acceptance, but in the authentic and firm resolve to work effectively in the way of truth in order to free man once and for all from any form of oppressive and violence forces that is raging so assiduously and the shackle of poverty of our time.
Through such resolve, we can return humanity to his dignified platform of existence, through which he exercises his full right in the scheme of things. Although, there is the gospel prosperity talks of material abundance as a sign of divine favor of which, though, what they seems to be silent about is the very purpose of this material abundance in the life of man.
Because, at this point, it has becomes a moral issue in particular, when there are bunch of haggard and hungry folks of the like of Lazarus hanging around us. Of course, it must be said, that this has become a moral deficiency on the contemporary setting of which majority become deprived in the mix of plenty. The same is true that it is all about the issue of self-centered attitude and distraction from the very issue of the heart and value of which the existence of man is accountable.

But there must be a shift of value system that asks for a balance and moderation without drifting either extreme in the quest to positively regulate our perspective of the current system. It must be the shift of value to balance our material well-being with that of the spiritual well-being and indeed, the self and others without recourse to the extreme as the current extremist nature of things seems to depict.

It must be observed, however, that in the 18th century, there arose a movement of the intellectual thought in Europe. And their sole aim was a rejection of the external authority as they enthrone what come to be regarded as personal subjective judgment. Although, they were known to be called enlightenment and was celebrated in their intellectual individualism. But their main objective was also to seek to banish any idea of living by repository of wisdom beyond one’s own intellect.
This post-Christian era also known as the age of reason or secular culture, was with the view that any rational being must be able to work out the truth about life for themselves, which seems to rain supreme at the time. However, it was not without an element of misconception, and if you like, a misplaced concept, because it take for granted all matter of basic belief, i.e. the strong feeling that exist or true in every individuals. The outcome of this was an outlook that appears to control the opinion makers and information disseminators of the time. The consequences of this were a sort of anti-Christian, a type of mindset that seems to move against the very value and dignity of man, peace and justices, and indeed, the interest of the collective wellbeing.

The reality is that, for any given society to truly have a human face and take its rightful place in the scheme of things and look to the future with confidence, it is necessary and imperative for an orientation of man from within, which implies healing of wounds and achieving a genuine purification of the heart. Such heart, contaminated by negative past memories of mutual misunderstanding and trauma to create a space for the act of forgiveness.
The same is true that there is no darkness of error that can totally act as a replacement of man in the scheme of things in the light of his creator. In the depth of man’s heart remain the yearning for the absolute truth and a thirst to attain the full knowledge and understanding of his creator. But the reality is that he must be disposed to the grandeur and the sublime thought of the Divine mind to fill him with the inspiration and comprehension of his real place in the scheme of things. And of cause, which also, implies a genuine relationship and love with our fellow being.
But unfortunately, this genuine relationship and love tend to remain in the radar of the greatest deceptions in the contemporary setting. A sort of an illusion that one get everything one wants, if you like, happiness without God. The same is true, that it is also an illusion that we can find authentic freedom by excluding moral truth and personal responsibility. But responsibility is not always a choice we make, rather, it is an inevitable act that happens before we ever consider any such possibility. In the past decade we must have witness an ever increasing emphasis on the need to develop a new ways of doing thing, if you like, in what may be termed a leaning culture. Which could be the only way to sustain a competitive advantage over a long term, in an increasing complex and turbulent environment of which the contemporary setting have no an immediate answer. The learning culture is characterized by a continues learning from experience and history, and indeed, by learning to learn. The basic assumption on the belief of a learning culture that can be described along two dimensions which are that of flexibility with regard to external environment and commitment for change. And the flexibility with regard to environment, often act as a facilitator and ease, in uncertain situation where there are tolerance of ambiguity and functional orientation. But as regard to commitment to change, it has to do with the sharing of responsibilities and information and support with a sense of participation toward a change of mindset-for solidarity.
The shared basic assumption in the contrast of flexibility with regard to external environment is but the rigidity in the status quo. While the basic assumption that contrast commitment is but a parochial orientation. But the integration of these concepts did allow for the development of a model of preparedness for a genuine transformation. But the learning culture becomes the model that reflects the basic assumption of flexibility and commitment with a disposition and wiliness to decisively deal with any form of transformation without procrastination in the face of any evolving reality.
Culture / The Eyes Of The Heart. by philoedu(m): 3:29pm On Jun 12
This is a known fact, that practical life tends to encompass fitness, skills that include cleaning and caring for our environment which is a series of fine motor skills .
Of cause, it demand that we live within our means, work hard as we strive to be happy, living a qualitative and not quantitative life as well as facing up to our weakness and realities head on. The same is true, that practical life requires that we view any daily difficulty with the "eyes of the heart" together with our physical eyes.

Because, much of the valuable experience is gained through this optic as we endeavour to gaze at these daily problems and difficulties with the eyes of the heart.
As often said, life is just like a school for our advancement, as a school of life which is not without the necessary materials to graduate at the end. As it were, it requires that we live up to it all with the necessary courage without fear as the physical and inner self partnered to the graduation time variously.
Further more, it demand that we must be prepared for the test and training, that take us through step by step to what is higher and better as we gain the necessary strength to grasp what one might call the supra-earthly affinity for our development, but not without in equivalent to the spiritual school.
This school of life is not without a curriculum and a method in place, that demand our daily attention necessary, without which it could always come to impact negatively from individual to the collective advancement.

When come to view closely, the one best in application of the method of practical school of life seems to point to that of the inductive method, that move from basic particular to that of the general trends of things, of the like from childhood- primary school to adulthood- university. Although, there is another method called " deductive " different from "inductive". In fact, deductive method, is that which move from - the universal or general trend of things to that of particulars or basic of things. This method, according to some school of thought, is mostly useful in the scientific development. Therefore, it must be argued that, " inductive" no doubt, tends to be more sustainable towards confronting our daily realities. Because, it is closely related to doing the very basic things of life, without chewing more than what one can swallow.
Therefore, in learning from. the most basic lesson to what is most important and sometimes very difficult to understand as we advance in life. It is important to know that, trying our best at every single moment implies making up for what have been neglected on the spiritual maturity front, through which we must be familiar with the knowledge of creation.
The same is true, the inductive method tends to adequately foster the learning method, although, not without its necessary difficulties but not also without positive and sufficient impact. And this has tends to uplift man along the spiritual and material horizons on the higher level of consciousness as related to our fellow human beings in our understanding, as history has come to demonstrate over time.
The inductive method; the particular and basic things in the spiritual understanding must make us to think good and noble with loving thought towards others, as the spiritual awareness unfolds like a rose that spread openly in general terms.
The German philosopher, is credited to have advice that man must live dangerously, if man is to know life. But this dangerous living come to mean that one must conduct oneself in such manner as to violate some natural law of right living, but such living, no doubt, is not without its tolls, in the later part of life, be it individual or collective. , C.J.E
Culture / In search of the Concept of Political Pragmatism. by philoedu(m): 3:12pm On Jun 05
When practical life is thought about or pragmatic is spoke about, what comes to mind is but " the political pragmatism". As it were, "political pragmatism" tends to refer to that kind of willingness to carry out whatever work to reach any desired goal.

Although, this may not clearly say politically, what goal this could be; of speculative as it were, politically. But let face it, confronting the current political complexity of economic, and name it, of various kind of political insecurity, is no more a controversial issue and urgent goal and no one can deny its importance, either.
Furthermore, dogmatism is a concept that relates to matters of fact or practical affairs, often to the exclusion of intellectual or artistic matters; practical as opposed to idealistic, based on practical considerations.
In philosophy, a "pragmatic approach" is but an attitude or policy, and the same is true, an approach to evaluate theories or beliefs in terms of success or failure of their practical applications.

Therefore, it is about adoption to life through daily evaluation to putting things in order, be it, economic, or policies that are not working politically, in both individual and collective lives. Therefore, being practical tends to refer to that which concerned the actual doing of something, manifested in actions.
The same is true, that pragmatic politics must and indeed, deals with political agendas sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical problems depending on the environment variously rather than romancing the theoretical or speculative side of things.
Consideration and a deep feeling of concern must be given to matters of facts of what could or should be, of the like of consequences and result, in anything that concerns humanity.

As a participant of history, there is an urgent need to radicate love, tolerance, and kindness for the sake of posterity, as a bearer of witness to speak in our favor when the times comes.
Practical life demands that we learn to employ in the production and exchange of goods and services for the interest of all and in particular for those in need, for the maintenance of our life and the life of others, who may come to depend on us.
History has a way of informing us, that whether we like it or not there are souls whose cries demand our attentions of our evolving wisdom to dissipate the shadow of the conflicting forces of whatever brand they may appear, that as it may, that tends to overwhelm us. This is to strengthen the will that needed some token affection and sympathetic response.
Of cause, such sympathetic response that may take the form of a coordinated effort that may appear little. But when keely viewed in the optic of introspection, we realized they are quite enough for us to take of and adjust to, in the increase of the vibrational measure set up in our personality in it's evolutionary journey of life.
It must be observed that we have been created not to relent in our practical life, and according to St. Paul, we must work to be able to eat, and to this fact, men of the past and present have not failed to demonstrate their power of accomplishment, in economic and literature, and indeed, in various other fields to advance social progress in the interest of all.
Therefore, political pragmatism, demands not speculation, but a coordinated effort to face up to the current contemporary challenges in practical terms, dealing decisively with the evil of oppression of various kinds without any misconception of the terms, no matter what.

Culture / The Unspoken Human Events. by philoedu(m): 5:46pm On May 21
Nearly every day of our lives, we come to experience all kinds of various palpable event and circumstances. In most cases, some of these events tend to fall within our control and some other times it does not, and we are left helpless and think, we could not move forward.
Although, so it seems, that we can do nothing to avoid many of the adverse negative conditions through what one might call the application of intelligent living. The intelligent living that fall within our space, that enable us to explore the various methods we deem compatible to our way of life and to our immediate control, without been carried away by any external influence.
In the absence of such what looks like intelligent living, we are often unable to trace certain actions on our part which must have been responsible for certain sudden events, when it does take place.
This sudden events, often times, is what we did least expected to happen with the result that we do not always have immediate control, talk less of the solutions.
The same is true, that there are certain situation that left us often in a helpless and complicated state of mind, with the resulting and devastating effect of conflicting pains, that often seems unending.
But such state of mind, can be avoided or approached with reflection and attitude of some level of detachment from purely personal issues as to be able to bear the accelerated vibration for it's gradual dissipation.
It must be bone mind, that as a living being, the vicissitudes, l mean the unpleasant change of circumstances or fortune and some form of trivialities, or lack of seriousness, no doubt, always to be expected and avoided in the journey of life.
In the light of this perspective, those of us who have persistently fought our way along this hard phase of the journey, know well enough, the painful misgiving, the harassing doubt and indeed, the solitary questions of the heart which do beset us.
Make no mistake, in spite of any misgiving, there are but very few individuals, who would accept and testify on emerging from such shadow that all was well with them. And a case in point is the like of what our dear beloved society has been experiencing and continue to experience, both by individuals and in the collective sphere.

However, we must bear in mind, that it does not really matter so much, on the level anyway, the difficulty, if only we are able to comprehend the way, the facts, and the life experiences it comes to offers, because there are no other way we could expect to acquire any such strength for further development,
The history of any individual or society is always there to guide and it demands adjustment and discipline which must be carried steadily into the psychic realm of our faculties of the mind, not without determination to put things in the right perspective.
The same is true, this is to enable us to bring with it the constant problem of acceptance and adjustment to the known factors of the mind as a human being.
Culture / The Psychology Of Cross Culture On Productivity. by philoedu(m): 1:59pm On May 14
The purpose of this write up is to see how culture affects the level of productivity in an environment where people are increasingly working across culture. And working across culture, we are often not truly taking cognizant of the underlying differences that may exist along the line, which though, are unintentionally sabotaging the system.
It is true that often, we are griped with the assumption that working in the same organization or speaking the same language, means we have the same objective and goals. It must be observed that we may have the objective and goals but the path to get to such end often take many hazardous twist and turns.
The result of the twist and turns could appear in the form of increase level of frustration, stress with lack of motivation and productivity, not without understanding and misconception that ultimately often could impact negatively in the system. The same is true that, it could split a professional relationship or partnership as it left the other in oblivion, or incognito, as to make one feel perplexed as to what had happened along the line. It is true, that often, there are individual who will not change their core values and behavioral pattern at any given time.
But striving to build a cultural awareness skill, will no doubt, decrease any likely issues that may damage any business relationship. It will, however, instead, pave way for a systematic smoother transition, when working across culture. There are some effective method, not only that may increase the productivity level but also may enhance some level of communication skill in any given cross –cultural setting.
The under listed key point must be fervently adhere to with kin observations.
 In any verbal and non-verbal language, clarification must always be sorted out, because, often, what one may think, an honest way to bring up an issue may turn out to be, a misconception, due to the direct approach, that could create distrust and strain for any future interaction.
 Therefore, being aware of how one present any subject is vital as one will definitely have to watch for the body –language. It is also true that one must not assume to understand gestures, because what may be acceptable in one culture may be an insult in another culture. Therefore, one must strive to use verbal expression to explicate the non-verbal gesture in use.

 There must be taken into consideration - the avoidance of taking others mistake as “personal” one . When working with others in any project, remember that every culture has its own method of application. Therefore, what one may perceive as a grave error due to the different style of work, may not be, hence, one must be prepared to ask for an explanation to understand the reason behind every single gesture as to learn from other culture.

 Accept that you do not understand what you do not know. We often want everyone to believe that we are competent and highly skillful in all area of the job. But contrary, to this assertion, there always remain some slight differences, in both practical knowledge of understanding and differences in meaning due to cultural differences. Therefore, in any behavior that may appear inappropriate, time must be taken to diagnose the action instead of a hasty assumption based on personal own cultural filters that may be lacking in the substance.

 There must be the Increase awareness of your own, formed idea or opinion before enough information or experience.-(preconception). In this context, one must bear mind, that we all carry with us a cultural baggage, which prescribed our behavior, value and how we perceive others and the world around us. The same is true, with this cultural baggage it allow us to categorize people and situations.

 Therefore, the more we are aware of this individual bias, the easier it may probably assist us to accept and understand our differences. It is true also, that this may ultimately help to break up what might be called the “stereotype” and false generalization about people and their culture, and indeed ultimately be what come to bind us due to this understanding.
Culture / Self -adjustment. by philoedu(m): 12:34pm On May 01
Speaking of self-adjustment means adjustment of behavior and emotion, no matter how hash any situation might seem to be, although, not without determination and a goal in mind.
Any well-adjusted individual must be able to control his or her behavior and emotion, as to deal with various other problems that may present themselves at any given unexpected time.
Furthermore, in any conflicting situation, adjustment is always required to seek common ground between the conflicting group in their various opinion and theoretical assumptions but not without taking them seriously in their attitude as individuals.
Because l have always emphasized, that any satisfactory development requires that individual relationships with one another need to be considered as a kind of that which must allow for an assertion of one's uniqueness.
However, to be able to adjust to any kind of situation demand some sort of maturity that requires that we know who we are in mind, our beliefs, and our convictions.
This is because, the more we realize who we are and our weakness, through such understanding, the less bigoted shall we generally becomes.
Although, under varying circumstances, maturity can always be recognized through tolerance and often with the ability to doubt one's ideal and that of others. Therefore, self-realization can often manifest through the exercises of individual potential combined with the attainment of maturity in the cultivation of relationships.
As it were, this is often subjectively attended to with a sense of being able to fully adapt to any situation, instead of attempting to direct the course as one's own development in assessment.
The problem of self-adjustment is often not taken seriously, even though it has a great deal of telling effect on every individual in our evolutionary journey.
The same is true that a bunch of individuals do not seem to understand that it is the very same basic problem that confronts everyone. Although, with different levels of perception in degree and modification in level, that come to depend on our behavior and our attitude to life, and indeed, individual reality as it presents itself which demands adjustment.
Life as a paradox demands that any attempt to justify this in the eyes of those who do not share the same aspiration and beliefs cannot in any way understand such paradox.
The result will be to make our life appear the more hopelessly contradictory, hence, we must accept our state of being as we develop a complete understanding of what our adjustment is, as distinctive as an individual.
This is because the self-within is ever rich with the products of many lives of struggle and development, of which it requires freedom to express itself as to begin to declare itself to project into the conscious field. It must be observed, that through this conscious field, a bunch of individuals has often come to surprise everyone with their inventions and ideas through the power and faculty of the past. This power and faculty of the past, in complete freedom, mingled with the tone of personal aspirations and when interpreted rightly, often blend and harmonize with the present.
Culture / Basic Of Maintenance Culture In The Workplace. by philoedu(m): 9:59am On Apr 23
It must be bone in mind that the product of maintenance is reliability, because any reliable equipment would function at the level of performance and satisfies the very need of the end user at any given time. The same is often true that reliability is assessed by measuring failure, with the primary function to eliminate or reduce any such failure to its barest minimum.

It is worthy of note that any functional failure will result to equipment performing below its normal working condition of which the key -performance indicator, often come to display the effectiveness of the measurement of such failure in the system. The same is true that for any fair result to be achieved , the basics of maintenance culture must be adhere to, as a process and as a platform through which every other procedure come to rest.

Therefore, Toolbox Safety meeting is intended to help workers recognize and control any hazard that may be found in the workplace. The regularly held safety meeting is a method used to reinforce the message that “Health and Safety” issues are very important to both employer and the workers. Making sure that every topic is relevant to the organization and job site.

1. REASON FOR TOOLBOX MEETINGS;-The reason for Safety meetings and Toolbox talk are important to building a strong safety culture and reinforcing the company’s commitment to protecting the workers. Therefore, holding regular safety meetings and toolbox talk can prevent worker from getting complacent or disapproving as to feel too satisfied with themselves or with the prevailing situation. The same is true that one may come to feel so confident that no change is necessary as to take safety for granted.
2. PURPOSE OF SAFETY MEETING;-The purpose of safety meetings is often to disseminate information to enhance each employee’s awareness of the importance of safe work practices as to improve in the overall safety and environmental communications and indeed, with compliance to safety regulations. The safety meeting allows employee the opportunity to relay safety and health concerns with workplace improvement. The same is true, that safety meetings serve as a preventive measure against unsafe acts through which the employee come to be educated on how to do their job safely.

3. TOOLBOX TALK ;-The toolbox talk is an informal safety meeting that is carried out as part of the organizations overall safety program. And it often comes to cover a special topic on safety aspect related to any specific job at hand. The meeting is normally very short in duration as it covers the specific related job. But as to how often it can be carried out in the workplace; the toolbox talk, typically come to last up to 10 to 15 minutes, and may take place once a week, that must be with an appropriate tone for a reminder about a specific issues on safety procedure or protocols that is already a part of a wider training.

WORKPLACE SAFETY BEHAVIOUR;-Safety is everyone’s responsibility, therefore, as an employee, you must always do the followings;- 1.You must learn to work safely and take all rules and regulation seriously. 2. You must recognized hazard and avoid them as much as possible. 3. You must report all accidents, injuries and illness when and where they occur. 4. You must inspect tools before use to avoid injuries.5. You must wear all assigned personal protective equipment.
MANAGEMENT RESPONSIBILTY;- 1.It is to provide safe and healthy workplace. 2. It is to provide personal protective equipment. 3. It is to prove HSE- personnel that over- see the safe procedure and in how to identify hazards.

BHAVIOUR IN THE USE OF PPE ON WORKPLACE;-1. Often, everyone is aware of the potential hazard in the work place without PPE, therefore, it is important to use it in the workplace.
2. PPE must always be worn because poor housekeeping can result in slips trips and falls.3.Exposed electricity can cause shock, burns or fire, if not handle properly. 4. Tools and equipment can cause injuries, if protective devices are not adequately put to use.
5. For instance, if a vehicle is not adequately shocked, it can roll off from position and become a hazard. Therefore, safety rules benefits everyone, and with fewer injuries or zero tolerance, any business can be productive and profitable. It is also true that by adhering to safety rules; any individual can always avoid injuries and illness from exposure to any hazardous substances.

REMEMBER -Maintenance safety ensures continues improvement and professionalism
to ensure consistent quality standard of work for customers at all time.

Culture / Refinement Of Culture. by philoedu(m): 2:45pm On Apr 10
Culture is subject to refinement as a man's inherent appetite and desires of both physical and mental. It is a means of both disciplinary measure and planting of a lucrative ideas toward which our energy is directed to advance the collective aspirations.
In this perspective, culture of any society is considered idealistic because any positive desired goal can advance, even, individual in some manner. The same is true, that culture in it's true sense of the word is subject to intentional refinement, not without a code of conduct of any society or system, as it provides for the needs of the system.
Culture in itself is not necessarily beneficial, no matter how conscientiously, it come to be applied, because it's content, no doubt, come to rest on human evolution; which is man saddle with responsibility to carry out the assignment of refinement, as the -'sumum buonum'.The ' sumum buonum' viewed as the highest good, in the evolutionary journey, and considered as such and capable of the attainment.
One might want to know, if there is any standard by which we can truly determine a meritorious culture, one that is ideal for man.
It will be argue that, a cogent approach to such subject, might required a set of
goal a culture should serve. In the light of this, we seems to learn and understand over time that certain conduct indigenous in some part of our society tends to be harmful as it interferes with our welfare, considered the ideal of good.
The same is often true, that as we evaluate certain behavior in close range and the inclinations it drag along with it as weaknesses, it could not but be suppressed. Such suppression, as it were, is always motivated either by social demand or by gradual attainment of that sense of moral understanding.
A society with a high sense of moral understanding will never tolerate, for instance, the act of murder, rape, and theft, as come to be witnessed in our society of today and viewed as an irresolvable enigma. Any culture toward refinement, not only must tread through the processes of various kinds, such as the refinement of our conduct and behaviour towards our environment, also because culture as a progress is not just refinement of our environment but aloof ourselves.
Through the refinement of culture, the societal collective sensibility , aesthetic inclination and mental vision, and indeed, our view of nature and the world, in general, will no doubt, be different. The culture of any age has always had something to contribute to advancing man in the evolutionary journey toward perfection , through which man transcends to dominate the environment with which we find ourselves. As Dr. Martin L, put it, "a man who has no cause to die for is not fit to live."
Culture / The Social Enigma. by philoedu(m): 2:53pm On Apr 03
Most of the time, getting some people in the act, be it deformation of character, or stealing, do not always pose any serious problem, due to the level of
moral and ethical system in place.

The ethical and moral level, also come with it with some level of quality of seriousness that make the rule to receive everything with a sense of seren cheerfulness in silence and take as a policy and inclination not to take anything as aggressive and ashamed.
The near presence of this strange emotional phenomenon called public opinion, no doubt, often seems to weigh heavily upon the Spirit, although, on a very few individual and not without alarm due to its very irrational nature.
It must be emphasized, though, that the lofty pretention of mankind oppressed by the miserable indignities of the environment and now the weather did appear as a colossal and helpless vanity deserving of scorn, wonder and compassion.
It must however, be added, that the simplicity of thought is common to any seren soul at both end of the social scale of which the view and beliefs had nothing in them to shock any one or startle anybody.
The same is true, that as matter of fact, the practical mind, in it's judgment of people and things, although, based on peculiar prejudice, is seldom totally wrong and in fact, almost never wrong headed.
In this peculiar Level of ethical or moral system, there exist, many facet
and complex being, the understanding, of whose thoughts, messages and doings cannot for a very long time be separated from any form of investigation of psychological and social nature.
Although, it cannot be rule out of some form of original genius to achieve some level of considerable realization of the power of imagination for correctness.

However, the what seems a precarious conditions will no doubt, in the long run, serve as a platform to bring about the capacity of pity for the more obvious form of that common human miseries, precisely because, it must always remain a stranger. The stranger that need to be translated into a conception, in terms of mental suffering, in order to grasp, first hand the very notion of the cruel intention behind it all.

The sensitive and lovable nature peculiar and intimate of certain individuals, often make people prickly and resentful to public criticism not without distress under the suspicious of ferocious opponents, in respective of their political and religious credo.

In spite of this social Enigma, there exist, the common and fervent believe that some level of the essentials and meaning of life can be embraced through the awareness of the increase of the power to transmute the chaos of life, thus, experiencing the ever greater degree of joy synonymous with Nietzsche's , " self overcoming".
Culture / In Search Of The Meaning Relationship. by philoedu(m): 5:01pm On Mar 20
According to the popular concept of relationship," relationship is the way in which two or more people are connected by blood or marriage". This write-up, is not meant to explore the nitty- gritty of what relationship is all about, which as l understand it, may not make much sense to embrace the main purpose in it's entirety.
However, in what l may regard as accidental and loosely defined concept, it must be emphasized, that the self- realization is the full flow of personality, that can take place in any fruitful soil of satisfactory interpersonal relationship.
Be that as it may, it is the attainment of a new kind relationship with others and with oneself. And it is what ultimately can come to heal us of any wound and indeed, of the many ocean of conflictuality and human drama of today's world, as has been the case in resent time.
Oftentimes, no matter how mature we think we are, we still find that, we are still carring some reminants of childhood undertones, that leave us face to face with difficulties we do not understand and yet in many respect, we see ourself as mature and have what it takes to get over anything, anyway.
The truth is that, often, our emotions and instinct, will not allow us, because the twinkly of an eyes will always disclose the child concealed behind our adult exterior.
It is truism to state that our relationship to an unknown person is often conditioned, by the kind of relationship we have had in the past. The same is true, that sometimes, it is difficult, if not impossible, in particular, in a stagnant culture, to meet a person for the first time, one from whom we may hope for help, without some degree of prejudice or misgiven, derived from previous experiences. It must be said, that it is common knowledge that opinions with aquitances changes as time evolves to get to knows one another better. And sometimes, such changes may not simply be the result of finding out more about such individual, rather, of what l may called that corresponding corrections of the partially distorted picture, of which our imagination could be held responsible in an atmosphere of anticipated construction.
Ideally, in any sane and non- stagnated culture, people approach one another, due to the wind of change,
as is currently making a wave in Europe without any form of misconception.
Although, in practice the image of the next person always look a complex one to decipher of the bargage it hold.
Nevertheless, this does not often remove from our emotion and instinct , not to read from people of their needs and inspirations of which through the act of relationship it can adequately find an exit.
According to Mother Theresa of Calculta,
one of the problem of our time, is not more of the suffering or the pain in the people, but rather the very feeling of being unwanted or rejected, uncared for by those we look up to.
Accordily, it is the lack of love for one another and charity not without the terrible act of indifference towards even neighbour and assaulted through exploitation, poverty, name it ravaging the society at large in spite of the opulence of materialism.
Culture / Learning System And Flexibility. by philoedu(m): 4:10pm On Mar 06
Any learning system have the tendency to produce a flexible system, that encourage and promote exchange of information among people.

The learning system works as it encourages everyone of the need to improve in their skills and other people's experience, and as it were, through which the people becomes developed.

In the same learning system, there is a greater motivation through which people becomes appreciated for their own skills, value and the work they do.
The same is true, that in such learning system, opinions is treated with respect on equal bases with understanding.

Indeed, there is such awareness of the role and importance of learning without distractions. In the learning system, everyone is more motivated to add values, no matter how little, that could encourage creativity and ,if you like, the sese of free- thinking that may eventually lead to novel solution to problems.

Taking for instance, in the learning organization, the workforce, no doubt, would become more flexible, and people would learn skills and aquire knowledge beyond their specific job requirements.
The same is true, this would enable anyone to learn to appreciate and perform other roles and tasks as it come their way.
Therefore, through learning organization or system, flexibility allows workers or people to move freely within the environment as it remove barriers associated with a rigidly structured environment or system.
It is also often true, that such system will ensure individuals will be able to cope rapidly with the changing everonment, the result of which is the sense of learning.

In the learning system, there are more opportunities to be creative with some level of avenue for trying out new ideas and the improvements of skills without having to care about mistakes. And indeed, such creative contribution must be recognized through which new ideas could flourish.
With new ideas that flourish, innovation and creativity is align, as everyone in every level became engaged in continual learning, as a valid contributions.

Being innovative and creative becomes the responsibility of everyone that allows learning organization or system to adapt to the necessary changes in the state of what looks like the prevailing efficient competitions.
Culture / A Learning System by philoedu(m): 5:31pm On Feb 20
A learning System is the system that encourages learning among it's people. It is a system that promotes exchange of information and creating a more knowledgeable, conducive and flexible attitude in the system. The same is true that it will encourage a flexible attitude that accept and adapt to new ideas and changes through a shared vision in the system.
It will be observed that, the very importance of learning was first introduced by Chinese philosopher, Confucius-(551-479 BC). In fact he believed that " everyone should benefit from learning." According to him, "Without learning, the wise becomes foolish ; by learning, the foolish become wise" . And " Learn as if you could never have enough of learning , as if you might miss something".
It will be observed that, the very underlying cause for emphasis on learning, is simply that it increases the space of change in any system or organisation.
Taken for instance, that classically, work has always been thought of as being conservative and difficult to change. And learning tends to be divorced from work and innovation come to be seen as the necessary but disruptive way to change.
Any system that is able to 'learn and innovate', no doubt, will be able to make the necessary charge,and indeed, if it is a corparate body, will be able to charge their work practices to perform better in what looks like a constantly changing environment. Take ISO and SON, for instance.
It will be observed that, now, change is measured in terms -of weeks and months, no longer in years as it were in the past. In the corparate world, the term is "business- re- engineering" is used to focus on the elimination of waste and not working smarter and learning.
Not long ago, there arise this "concept of System Thinking" of which Gould- Kreutzer Associates, Inc., define as- "A framework for seeing interrelationship that exist rather than just things; just to see the forest and the trees".
As it were, this simply means, that the organisation or system need to be aware of both the system or organisation as whole as well as the people or individuals within the system, as the case maybe.
It will be observed, that often, the contrary has always been the case of which the system or organization, often tends to concentrate only on their own needs and profit and not the needs of the people or individuals that makeup the system or organisation.
Currently," the System Thinking" is trying to Change this perception in the "Learning System"so that the system or organisation strive to include the ambitions of the individuals or people, not just that of the system or organisational goals and this no doubt, could inject some basic and necessary difference to our charging world of today.
Culture / In Search Of The Meaning Of Humility. by philoedu(m): 2:39pm On Feb 06
According to Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, " Humility is the quality of not thinking that you are better than other people: the quality of being humble. In this perspective, it will be argue that it is a virtue and it is most disliked in the sphere of our natural feeling.
This is true, because it cannot be arcquired without undergoing, so it seems, some very unpleasant process of humiliation.
Indeed, there is a saying, that Our Lord Jesus became humble through suffering. Therefore, for any true Christian, the very meaning of Humility cannot be forgotten. And the same is true that it is the very sinfulness of pride of which the importance of Humility come to play an important Christian teaching.
In order to to get a clear understanding of the Meaning of Humility, it may be we'll be advised to clear our mind of any false ideas of virtue, that we may have come to entertained.
It is not an illusion, that often, some individual come to think and believe that Humility stand in opposition to truth as they embrace a decietful thinking to themselves just to display an act of Humility for the sake of wants and self - gratification.
However, there are school of thought who believe that a humble individual must not stand up for himself non any fair play and justice. However, it must be made clear that this type of conception amount to nothing than a peculiar pitfall of the one who looks like a timid individual that tends to prefer to remain in silent when in justice, instead of breaking his silence for the sake of others. This is but a canopy of an individual in the frame up of an excuse of cawardic attitude in the name of Humility.
Humility is never an act of being fearful, non does it remove from any one the sense of the cultivation of talents and in the maintance of self-estem. It is unfortunate, that a bunch of individual come to confuse Humility with that of lazyness and fearfulness of taking a responsibility, which amount to being in a state of self deception known as inferiority complex.
In this perspective, perhaps the most pitiable form of false humility is that of who choose to speaks bad of himself and his capacities, just to be contradicted by others as he indirectly encourage them to praise him.
Often, a bunch of individual come to believe that it is only the religious who are meant to be humble, because only this type of people who alone can lie on the floor for others without running a grave risk of being laugh at. Of cause, it is a common experience to find that humility exist not so much among a bunch of limited intellectual capacity, just as among some trickles of distinguished schoolars. And indeed, of a bunch of individuals who know so much that they know how little knowledge they possess.
Culture / Taken Responsibilities. by philoedu(m): 5:14pm On Jan 16
I wake this morning, thinking how simple life could be for everyone, if we could actually take our individual responsibilities. In doing our best in the true sense of the word, in where ever we find ourselves.
But what does it means to take responsibility?. In a nutshell, l think it really means we must blame ourselves for something, in particular, when there is need to do so, and we must be prepared to acknowledge any fault where it is due, and indeed, must take responsibility for any poor choice we make when there is also a need to do it- " mia coupa".
Often, it seems to me, not everyone is aware of this intricate but true reality we have to contend with and yet it is present with us. The same is true that many do not seems to see this personal betterment which manifest to putting into life of the collective betterment.
In another perspective, responsibility, seems also to mean being dependable, in the keeping of our promises and in the honouring of our commitment when there is need to do so, without any excuses to blame others when things goes wrong.
According to one Bowra, just as everything serves a purpose, so also we serves a purpose in the scheme of things, and we have the spiritual and material obligation to realize our full potential and nature in it.
Therefore, it is essential as long as we are dependable, to train ourselves to realize our potentialities without being passive about it in our individual uniqueness. Indeed, St. Paul, eloquently spoke about this in the scripture, of the gift of the spirit that vary in purpose and intensity in our unique individual life.
Often, many process in nature, is only comprehensible in terms of the end result, but remain obscure, when considered simply from the casual point of view. It must be observed that the self-realization" concept does not imply a lack of recognition of individual differences in any way.
On the contrary, this unique differences must come to be respected in whatever the underlying basic endowment may be, because it is the connecting point, of the inner wholeness which is the common denominator that enhance and harmonize realities as we come to know it.
It must be observed, for instance, that it is not often a simple matter to blame parents for everything that goes wrong with children in the cause of their development. But of the extremely but complex interaction with that differing personalities along the way, although, relative but not absolute.
Often times, it seems frustration has it's positive side of it, as it enable us to discover ourselves and also to finding that all our wants are not always immediately come to be satisfied which can lead us to the discovery that we are after all, dependable to one another in taken responsibilities.

Education / Empiricism In Philosophy. by philoedu(m): 4:47pm On Dec 19, 2021
According to the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary definition -noun (u) (philosophy) the uses of experiment or experience as the basis for our ideas; the belief in this method- empiricism, of which John Locke, is an exponent.
Besides being a theory about the basis and origin of knowledge and content of the mind in general, Empiricism is also a method rather than a specific school of philosophy. It reappears in the history of philosophy as a definite epistemological doctrine- (we shall be looking into the concept of what epistemology means) at other time.
In the broad sense, Empiricism means the conviction of which philosophy in an attempt to systemize, explicate and understand human experience, must start from the facts of experience and eventually must return to that same experience for its final seal and approval.
The same is true that to say that philosophy starts from human experience, is undeniably true. And as a matter of fact, philosophy is nothing but a question of our experiences.
Because philosophy may lead us into a field so remote, from anything we may find in our immediate experience as in the " archetypes" of Plato or in the " things-as-such" of Kant.
But generally speaking, philosophy starts from experience but does not end with inexperience but in wisdom.
And as the saying has it, with the cause of time, philosophers often come to forget the original question from which they had to sort an answer. But as they become so immersed into the answer they got with time, they are bound to forget to enquire whether it supplies or fits the very fact of experience from which they had started.
The same is true that it is the tendency to speculate that brought philosophers a bad name as a dreamer and impractical men.
As it were, " Empiricism" is said to be a revolt against this tendency that turns resolutely against the acceptance of any philosophical hypothesis which is not supported by any fact of experience.
It must be observed that among the ancients who strive with the greatest achievement in the realm of philosophy, maybe ascribed to Indian and Greek, although, with different approaches and outlook of these two ancient cultures to philosophical problems.
While the Indian philosophy may be primarily subjective inexperience, it is said to take its birth in man's feeling of resentment at his fate.
On the part, the Ancient Greek philosophy, primarily we're interested in the world of external things that stand against the world of subjective experience through which we become aware of the flux of our experiences.
It must be emphasized, however, that another Indian school of philosophy tends to have its origin in the conflict which arises in man's experience as a result of pain or from a sense of conflict of duty.
It must be observed that Greek philosophy in the early phase is said to be dominated by a sense of curiosity about the world of nature as they seek to penetrate the secrets which lie behind its ever-changing face.
Therefore the Greek philosophy strives to act as a child of wonder which the world of objects and occurrences in the external world evokes in his breast.
The Greek philosophy tends to strive towards natural science that also tends to keep closest to the. scientific thought of which " Empiricism" is typical.
Education / The Law Of " Cause And Effect". by philoedu(m): 1:50pm On Nov 21, 2021
The law of cause and effect is also called the law of "Karma" in the language of Sanskrit, which means "deed" or to do. In the application of the life journey, it comes to implies that human thought, actions, and deeds are all " karmic cause".
Therefore, it is this that tends to set in motion certain circumstances which in turn produce the effect in the same life journey, of the like of, in any actions, there is always a reaction.
Although, there are schools of thought, who doubt any such theory, and the same is true that there are those who are firm believers in this same theory.
Those who believe are often quick to point out that when they come across a certain person in a condition of poor health or undesirable circumstances; that certainly such individual, no doubt, must have trespassed the karmic law as to bring about such adverse condition.
Although, this could be true, that being human, we often tend to occasionally act in such a way as to completely be out of harmony with nature, a state of imbalance of which the level of negativity tends to outweigh that of positivity in life journey.
The same is that there is the principle of ignorance that does not protect anyone from any form of punishment established for this life journey, which, however, has its applications much more severely to the law of creation.

It must, however, be observed that any form of imbalance in the life evolutionary journey, no doubt, has its negative implications of undesirable effects.
Therefore, it cannot be negated that human life is susceptible to any such occasional occurrences.
But one has to be careful not to make the sweeping assumption that any form of illness, for instance, or an undesirable situation is as a result of this, otherwise, this may act as being judgmental or a misconception.
It is important, however, to know that there exists such law of karma or the law of cause and effect, that is a part and parcel of life creation, just to guide and regulate our every movement or journey of life.
This is true, not just to guide but also as not to overdo anything that may result in " imbalance" that could result in an undesirable situation, of the like of the current global " climate change and other issues of life we often take for granted on daily bases.
The reason is obvious because we overdo things without taken cognizant of the concept of limitation. In everything, there is always a limit and when we excessively do things, it results in an imbalance of which nature or even the scripture warn humanity about.

It must be observed that, there is the concept of categories, introduced by St. Thomas Aquiana, such that in everything there is a level or category, that may vary from one individual to the others, of the like of " faith, believe and indeed, of given; we do not do things in the same level or category, there are always differences when measured.

This is to say, in our evolutionary journey, everyone is not in the same level or category of faith and belief and of given, because we are created to be so and we are saddled with the responsibility to discover these laws in our evolutionary journey of which the scripture come to represent.
However, some people have life pigeonholed into tidy compartments of good and bad, and such people also tends to have equal tidy explanations for event or occurrences and will be quick to explain any misfortune by placing blame usually upon others and why not, even upon themselves.
It must be observed that often, obstacles, oppositions, and indeed, problems are not so readily "good or evil" as the scripture has often made us understand, due to our evolutionary journey.
Therefore, they come to serve as opportunities for growth and enlightenment, as to compel us to develop what may be called randomly of common sense along a footpath to spiritual liberation.
Religion / The Common Good. by philoedu(m): 4:35pm On Nov 07, 2021
I thought l could have proceeded to write the second part of the JHA, but unfortunately, for whatever reason, l could not wait to do exactly just that, as the current topic tends to impose itself upon my mind with no option but to just move on.
However, the very notion of the common good can provide what one may call the touchstone of domestic programs with hopeful and realistic favorable economic conditions. As it were, wherever such spirit of the common good is tenable, it must be without resulting in any excessive consumption more than can be affordable and necessary.
But there be a need for vision in the reshaping of any public opinion against any such direction.
Such vision is necessary in a decaying society in its continued emancipation in the individualistic tendencies, without a moment of self-evaluation. The self-evaluation is based on what kind of projection for the future, it envisages for the coming generation in correcting all the past ethical blunders to govern effectively.
Because let face it, there is lacking a great deal of what one may call, coherent and inclusive spirit of collective vision, with public philosophy that provide the means of adequate understanding that sympathize with the aim and objective of a just equitable, and ethical concept and tradition, a word of honor and word that guides to good governance.
The same is true, that any such vision must act as a power broker, as it is measured and persuasively advocated with a strong sense of collective aspirations, not necessary with the intent to legitimize the pursuit of self-interest in the form of large scale private acquisitiveness with continues eulogizing, with the result of large scale permissiveness and repression.
Because it is time to embrace the vision for a long-term and viable foundation for a just and equitable society for the sake of the common good. It must be based on significant structural reform as opposed to that technocratic fine-turning system that often fails to address the issue of the concept of the common good.
In the face of the current challenges and in what looks like an intractable situation, no doubt has it's the corresponding opportunity of solutions to look inn-word rather than out-word, in the asking as to whether it is time to have a tangible change of direction of what is appropriate and inappropriate.
However, the theme of the common good, when adequately and effectively represented in words and actions, no doubt, could inject the sense of inclusiveness into the mind that could induce one to view problems from a different perspective.
This can be tenable through the recalling of our common history and records of achievement, why not, Even our failures and defeat that always act as catalyst for any significant and enduring positive change towards a lasting radical reform for the viable reshaping of the system in general for the sake of posterity.

Health / Hazard Identification And Control. by philoedu(m): 4:50pm On Nov 03, 2021
1. What is Hazard? Hazard is defined as a potential to harm and is often associated with uncontrolled conditions or activities that may result in injury or death.

Therefore, for the sake of safety, hazards must be identified, control and eliminated as early as possible to prevent any injuries, illness, or death in any working environment.
2. What is Job Hazard Analysis? This is the technique that focuses attention that allows for the identification of hazard before any injury or accident take occur in any environment. Therefore, JHA also focuses attention on the relationship between the Workers, the tasks, Tools, and the Environment, - (J.H.A= W.T.T.E).
3. What is the importance of JHA?. The importance of JHA cannot be overemphasized, as it tends to embrace everything that has to do with safety. And some of the importance of JHA is the like of adding value to life and to the task we do as well as the entire management system.
It is also the best method to determine in establishing any work procedure. The same is true, that it also comes to act as component of commitment and consistency in safety health and management system.
(4.) What is the value of JHA?, The value of JHA is the credibility stance, it tends to maintain as it put in evidence the high level of commitment and consistency in safety and health management system.
(5.) Method of hazard Identification; The JHA is an exercise of detecting and controlling hazard in the workplace and it's goal is to discover the followings;-
1. Discover of what can go wrong .
2. Discover of what is the likely consequences .3. Discover of how it could arise.
4. Discover of what could be other contributing factors.
5. Discover of how likely any such hazard could occur.
Therefore, to make the JHA useful, it is important to document the answers of the above questions in a consistent manner.

In describing the hazard in this way, tends to ensure that any effort made to eliminate the hazard and to implement the hazard control will assist to target the most important contributor to hazard. (To be continue).
Culture / The Power Of Silence. by philoedu(m): 12:21pm On Oct 24, 2021
In our everyday life, there is always room for growth, change and refinement. But we must set aside a time for such confinement of thought and opinion and must always be prepared to change or make an adjustment when necessary. By so doing, new knowledge is brought to bear in our consciousness for any eventual modifications and refinement for our experience.
The same is often true, in the importance of the power of silence in our journey of life, because often times, the power of silence can moves us into a new dimension of understanding and indeed, a higher level of consciousness.
History has often, in way put in evidence, that with silence, one can become a living force in every phase of life. This is true, as it has often come to help to avoid conflicts, and given strength in an emotional moment of crises with the result of attracting the shy to speak out, even unprepared.
Indeed, the rule of learning by listening and observation come to gain even more merit, when we are told that the great philosophers of old used the power of Silence, as they impose silence on their student, as the students were able to carry on with their studies.
During the time, the students were able to absorbed and contemplate to find their own answers to their numerous problem. Therefore, with the power of silence, one no doubt, can come to the very awareness that knowledge grasps from within hold greater value. But the mind must be controlled to nurture and strengthen not without principles imposed.
Because, if silence is required in the interest of honour and dignity, there may as well be another reason which could be justification for
secrecy, something more like self- survival.
The same is true, if secrecy is often a painful obligation imposed as a form of a rigid society, it may also come to act as a strategy against or around any intruders.
However, the stress of being involved in a private and social realities cannot be over emphasised, and it means that a lot of the important activities come to take place in that small area where the inner and outer realities meet the eyes.
It must be observed, however, that the vocabulary of vision, is much in evidence here, that tends to indicate just how much is going on in the most sensitive part of our organ , that both connect and separate our consciousness and the world around us.
However, in a world full of so many secrets and imposed suppression, the eyes definitely have to be very busy, not only in encountering surfaces , but having to penetrate them enough, not only to decipher the signs and wonders but also to be sure they are well interpreted without being misinterpreted as at when required to do so.

Education / The Giant of Modern History of Thought. by philoedu(m): 1:29pm On Oct 17, 2021
When speaking of the modern giant of the history of thought, what come to mind is the name of Emmanuel Kant, the German philosopher. In his genius, he combines the " Empiricist and Rationalist thought through the " Critique of Pure Reason in 1781" that marked the end of "Enlightenment" to initiate a new era called idealism.
In his view, knowledge is impossible without accepting the truth from both Empiricist and Rationalist' school of thought. In this stance he based his Ethics on reason of which moral duties can be deduced by all rational being.
In his view there is uhh a problem with the empiricism method of coming to knowledge.
According to Kant, if all we know and collect are particular sensations or particular impressions, according to the view of the empiricism, how can we then arrive at a necessary and universal knowledge?.
Put in more simple understanding, how can one explain the very possibility of any scientific knowledge and if you like the very relationship that may exist between cause and effect which enable the mind to grasp the scientific truth.
To these turning questions, in taking no side Kant combines the methods to figures out the ways humans come to know things, as he bridge the gap between two schools of thought of the Empiricist and Rationalist.
In this extra ordinary bridging, he refigure the concepts with the result of a new method to knowing things from the human point of view.
Rather than, humans are passive in observing the world, they are indeed, instead active in knowing the world around them.
From the Empiricist point of view, " there can be no doubt, that all knowledge begins from experience". Although, our knowledge begins with experience, but this does not follow that it arises out of experience".
It must be observed, that in what looks like out-side in approach to knowledge of the empiricism, the object tends to causes passive perceivers to have "sensation" according to John Locke, and to have "impression" - according to Hume, according to the English philosophers. However, Kant believed that the categories of "space and time" he called " intuition" were imposed on experience by the human mind in order to make sense out of it."

According to Kant, this is his own " Copernican Revolution" just to remind how "Copernicus rejected the very idea that the sun revolved around the earth". In this way he tends to have solved the problem of how the mind come to acquire knowledge from experience. In this perspective, he made us to understand how the mind imposes principles upon our experience to generate knowledge.
Of cause, these principles reside in our faculty of understanding, according to Kant, like for instance, taken Bread as an example, which is the product of certain content, dough being processed by a form- to make up bread.
The same is true of our knowledge which is a product of content of " what you sense and what you understand - in the space and time as the form of our intuition that work together to result to the knowledge we have at any given time.
Culture / Mode Of Communication In The Workplace. by philoedu(m): 11:57am On Oct 09, 2021
In any efficient workplace, any given task must be carried out, of which the understanding of the mode of communication becomes imperative for the sake of safety.

Where there is a misunderstanding of communication, there is bound to be inefficiency and often time, safety becomes underrated with related discrepancies with the result of the unproductive work environment.
It will be observed, that the majority of individuals do not often take safety seriously, and when they do, their level of commitment is below average due to a bunch of factors.

As it were, one of the elements to driving such effort and adherent to rules and regulation in the workplace, for adequate understanding is spotted within the mode of communications.

However, it was discovered that there may be four such types of mode of communication, of which at one time or the other, an individual may find he falls into one of the four categories of behavioral function. Therefore, the purpose is to learn to adapt to any of the strategic mode of communication in order to reach out to any individual effectively.
It is often true, that certain individual tends to get along easily and better with those whose affinity of communication style is similar to theirs.

The same is true that, often time, they have a hard time communicating with those whose style of communication is in sharp contrast with their own with the result of misunderstanding and unjust criticism most of the time in the workplace.
Among the four mode of communications are as follow:-
1. The Controllers
2. The Analyzers
3. The Supporters
4. The Promoters
1. Therefore, the Controllers are the individuals who may be called the- Doers, because they often want to lead others, like it or not, acting as the driving force within any group they find themselves.

They are characterized by emphasis on action and result, with high standard on himself and others, although, constructively and often time very impatient and untiring due to what he comes to view as a responsibility that require attention.
Therefore, working or communicating with a typical Controller, be prepared to be tested and fast moving, not without some argument or disagreement with a raise voice that may challenge your thought in the process. However, it must be closely observed that such behavior is never an attack on your person, on the contrary, but on the task at hand.
2. Analyzers are those individuals characterized by analysis and details, a sort of systematic inquiry at every single interval of altered concept during communications or task, the result is they may appear stiff or hard, but not you, rather on the task at hand.

They function tenaciously to find satisfaction in what they view as edification as they weigh the options to determine the best possible solution for any given task.
These individuals as the name depict, remains a great value, as a logical thinker who at any given time, strives on the side of objectivity, in what may look like a complex problem or situation.
Although, there will always be a communication barrier with such individual, in particular, when you side on generalizing rather than being specific.

It must be observed that in the mode of communications, it begin with you because before you point the finger to seek any solution for any perceived communication challenge, with any individual, self-examination is imperative.

The question is often to be fair, as to whether if you are certain, that the source of certain communications discrepancy or challenge, and if you like, behavior experienced emanated from you or the other individual.

Therefore, the critical examination is often required, because you should be concerned with your character not reputation because your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what other think you are, and not really important because it is never stable. (To be continued).
Education / The Unspoken Words That Hurt. by philoedu(m): 6:13pm On Oct 03, 2021
It must be observed, that there are spoken and unspoken words in our everyday communication with one another, aware of it or not. The unspoken, sometimes, come to be called body language, depending on the societal norms and often, of the educational or cultural background. The same is true, in a chaotic society, these basic stitches of communication are not often given the credence they deserved in any pronouncement.
At a school context, the winner stood up with an extraordinary ovation and bowed down to the huge audience that gathered for the occasion of the day.
The man beside one of the individual who was among the audience with his son bend a little just to whisper to his friend and said; " l wish l had a son that smart". The boy beside him fidgeting on what looks like a metal hair next to him looked up to his Dad with sad eyes.
On a similar occasion, an artist unveils one of his masterpieces, only to hear someone in the vicinity exclaim; "How ugly!".
At any give time, more often than not, we come to witness this similar scene occurs simply because some individual has not yet learned to make adequate use of the concept called " Tactfulness".lt will be observed that the concept of "Tact" can be found between two other concepts commonly applied by people in our every day dealing with one another, known as " Submissiveness" and " Aggressiveness".
It is often true that people tend to be too blurt in dealing with others and called it frankness, unaware of the hurt or discomfort they must have caused to other individuals.
Of cause, it could have been avoided where there is sanity and adequate psychological development of the ability to mentally reverse roles. In the scripture, in one of the verses, "do unto others as you would have them do to you", a sort of conscious awareness of putting oneself in the place of the others.
Although, we often come to explicate this as; it is due to the environmental pressure, which often disallowed the conscious awareness to take its rightful place.
However, it becomes often, difficult, if not impossible to contend with such situation, when it arise, but in reality, taken cognizant of the varying situation at play, self-education can minimize any extreme situation that allows for some level of sanity of communication.
To be Tactful is the act of politeness, firm, and yet sincere without any form of self-deceit, when confronting an unexpected situation, with a little dose of sensibility without hurting anyone along the line.
According to Emerson Waldo, " defect in manner is usually the defect of perception ", therefore, perception of other people's feelings is equally the very key to becoming more tactful on our part. Often, a bunch of individuals tends not to be aware of these facts, instead, they allow themselves to be drawn into a state of the borderline situation, which is a state between conscious and unconscious situation.
In this state, they are unaware of the very effect of their blunder, as they think at this point, nothing matters, as their instinct tends to dominate the act of rationality, and any temporary hurt amounts to nothing. The reality is that any such hurt can be devastating as to tends to ruins one's entire day.
Indeed, often any of such hurt can even result in some mental loss of self-worth, just like the one who gave his father a had sad look.
Although we can afford to give our opinion, makeup decisions, and take a stand, then look back at the way we actually act and communicated afterward, it becomes obvious, something was missing.
The same is true, that the moment we attribute our shortcoming or failure in securing anything to some situational influence, we may imagine exist, we no doubt, short the door against self-analysis and even fail to learn a valuable lesson of a lifetime.
