    Elevate Your Mind

    Current events along with taking care of elderly loved ones is a pretty good catalyst for reflection. Gotta make adjustments all the time. Getting older clarifies the reality even more. It’s a good habit to develop some regular infusion of positive thought to counter the negative waves.
    Learn to count the blessing all around. Appreciate the simple things.

    It’s good for you.

    And the alternative may just drive you Crazy....

    Look if being negative leads to dementia, then I'm screwed. History of Alzheimer's in the family, grouchy bastard...

    However more important than just thinking positive thoughts is the ability to develop a sense of empathy, which I see is often lacking and which provides fuel for my overwhelming negativity. Considering current events, I've been pretty damn sad lately.

    Hard to beat exercise and communing with nature which we should all have in spades. Blueberries are damn good for your brain. Learning new things is great for your brain too, especially things that involve hand-eye coordination. Sleep's a huge factor as well.

    One thing I currently struggle with is monotonous repetitive stuff all day that's not mentally engaging in a positive challenging way, AKA having a job. No doubt this leads to mental fatigue and stress that spills over into every other aspect of my life. I guess as they say, balance is everything and I need to work on finding more.

    Physical and even mental well being is one thing.
    Expanding your mind is something else. You won’t get there or even start to when you trap yourself.

    When things 'look' like they're becoming too serious, go sit in the sun for a bit and sing the row your boat song. Life is a dream. Go live that dream life.

    Ah man you are in Tucson? Lived there for 18 years before moving to Seattle. Really nice place to live. I really miss the desert, the flora and fauna. Don't miss living my entire live in air conditioned spaces, cool in the summer and heated in the winter and the riding was so different than here in the PNW. Also tortillas. I could sit all day and just watch the cactus wrens hunt lizards, or the sky, so blue and ethereal.

    When all this is done, head over the east side, broadway and pantano and hit up La Mesa Tortilla factory for me and grab a pack of hot fresh flour tortillas off the press, then walk next door to La Baguette french bakery and grab a fresh baguette outta their steam injection ovens, then head over to Oreganos and get an oregano salad with a tall beer. That'd be a perfect day on the eastside of Tucson. Especially if it started with a lap around Fantasy Island.

    Tucson indeed! I love it here, but cannot go out in the sun any more without good covering. When it ain't over 100F it is so beautiful. As you say, the skies, the wildlife, all of that is simply wonderful. I used to ride the Tortolitas behind me here all day long and never tire Every time I went out I'd see something new and amazing, and still do now.

    Once this is done, your plan sounds pretty amazing, but I do not drink any more, so the beer will have to stay in the pump.

    I just cannot wait to be able to ride again.

    I have trouble taking that site seriously, so I looked up the source and found this: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/2020/jun/...-dementia-risk

    Summed up: depression and anxiety are factors in developing Alzheimer's. A survey conducted on 292 people, aged 55+ at high risk of Alzheimer's, asked questions about if they thought deeply of the past and were worried about the future, summed up as repetitive negative thoughts (RNT). They were measured for depression and anxiety symptoms and their cognitive function was assessed, measuring memory, attention, spatial cognition, and language. Some (113) then went under PET brain scans to measure tau and amyloid build-up (proteins that cause the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer's).

    The researchers found that people who exhibited higher RNT patterns experienced more cognitive decline over a four-year period, and declines in memory (which is among the earlier signs of Alzheimer’s disease), and they were more likely to have amyloid and tau deposits in their brain.

    These findings encouraged Alzheimer's Society chief (UK charity org) to call to research this further.

    IMO, just reminds me of Buddhist wisdom, regarding the importance of mental stability/balance for health.

    I must ask, for the sake of rhetoric: what are the symptoms of giving into despair?

    Ha, can't say I've read much Marcus Aurelius and not sure where I stand on the whole stoicism thing. I've read just about everything in print about Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman, and Smith though. To be on a fly on the wall in Concord during those days, oh man.

    Are there not usually behavioral patterns to be found? Like a complete change in attitude that is non conformist, in this case?

    Gotta get a hint that there's a problem before someone will admit it and act to fix things, such as the process leading to it. Some might not be so willing to accept lecturing/advice on how to healthily live, feeling that it's troublesome for someone else to be dictating their lives, judging them as inferior for not conforming like sheep. They might feel like they've been doing is not abnormal/wrong and cite that others found success with such an attitude too.

    I say that judging things as negative in the first place is part of the process that needs fixing. Categorizing things as positive or negative, or into other groupings, is a pattern that can be improved on to not be as lazy and more appreciative of the details. Things judged as negative are too easily dismissed, especially unfairly when judged based on stereotypes or initial impressions.

    Here is an excellent, easy sample.

    In fact, it occurs to me that Emerson directed me to Marcus.

    Excellent Post Miker, thanks.

    On James Allen.....
    "He never wrote theories, or for the sake of writing; but he wrote when he had a message, and it became a message only when he had lived it out in his own life, and knew that it was good. Thus he wrote facts, which he had proven by practice."

    I say that judging things as negative in the first place is part of the process that needs fixing. Categorizing things as positive or negative, or into other groupings, is a pattern that can be improved on to not be as lazy and more appreciative of the details. Things judged as negative are too easily dismissed, especially unfairly when judged based on stereotypes or initial impressions.
    If you cannot or more likely will not, recognize the difference, be prepared for the eventual lightning bolt produced by the imbalance.

    The difference is based on societal consensus, or based on personal standards. It's totally made up. It's a waste of time to keep up with where the line is drawn. One tribe might draw the line more "strictly" than another. Doesn't seem like these groups seem like compromising on where it's drawn, sometimes willing to get violent to enforce their own belief.

    I rather see things more wholly as reality dictates, rather than the interpretation from my own standards or society's standards. The interpretation tends to be based on oversimplified imagination, biased in some way. I see standards as only a way for people to know when they can stop self-improving, yet still be tolerated by society, and for people to use in order to judge others by.

    Again, why judge and categorize in the first place? Is it not rude and lazy? Got a cognitive side of the brain that could be used instead of the lizard brained side.

    I see things as they are and how they can improve from there, and how they can also fall from there. Can this behavior be judged as positive or negative? If it's not positive, then it's negative? Isn't this what people waste their time on social media doing, looking for validation for their own behavior, or just outright saying it's not wrong/bad and trying to normalize it by exposing it to people who didn't know its existence was real and so widespread so others grow into accepting it?

    To answer my own question, regarding symptoms of giving into despair, I'd say something along the lines of changing one's attitude to "no more Mr. Nice Guy" is one symptom. Generally lacking trust in strangers and doing things, perhaps a bit unmoral (but not exactly illegal, esp if you see others getting away with doing the same), in order to help those in your small circle of trust. I imply that these symptoms could be part of the processes closer to the origin problem that leads to repetitive negative thoughts.

    Their endless Ice tea is also the ticket after a good ride. I lived on the eastside so Oreganos was always a good stop for us on our way back from a big loop at Catalina state park, 50 year trail, or Starr Pass. We'd hit Chuy's on Catalina highway if we were riding out at reddington or doing any of the Mt lemmon loops (though I have seen the footage recently, and looks like it is having a big burn right now. That was always painful to see).

    I never rode the Tortolitas much as it was just too big of slog to get out there from where I lived, unless we were doing the 24hrITOP which we did from its first year until 2013. We won the 5 man class once and came in 2nd and 3rd a couple of times back when it was smaller and we were younger. Good times that festival, did it one year when it started raining at 12pm on Saturday though Sunday at 9 am and at least twice when we woke up Saturday morning to snow on our tents plus a bunch of year where it was 85-90° all day.

    Tucson is such a good little town! You will be back on your bike soon, we got your back!

    Yeah the fires are getting a lot worse now. The Bighorn Fire on the west side of Pusch Ridge has now spread over 3000 acres, moving NE towards Pima Canyon and probably beyond. There is also 3500 acres burning just over to the NE side of the Tortolitas, which was said to be low in actual fire activity, but with the increased winds this morning, will likely be much larger soon.
    It is quite the spectacle watching the choppers and Very heavy Lift tankers dropping water and retardant on the extent of the burn, and that has become quite the spectator sport now with hundreds pf people lining up along Oracle to watch.
    Big problem too is the smoke. I woke at 4.30 am this morning and had to close all the windows as the house stank of smoke. Looking down over the valley and downtown, there is now a thick pall of smoke laid over it all.
    So far, I do not believe any trails are affected, but that could change with the wind. Suck a shame for the flora and fauna.

    Yeah I saw a video on reddit that had a serious low pass of a waterbomber at pusch ridge fire but can't link it because there is a profanity in the link and our dinosaur server can't distinguish between an url and a typed word.

    Edit
    trying this: https://bit.ly/2A9UgQz


    I recall many a fire day in Tucson over the years but the smoke was never as bad as in Seattle when BC burns. It gets so bad it is like Delhi or Beijing as far as pollution goes. The sun is a golden orb all day and it smells like being in a campfire for a couple of weeks. It is insane how bad it gets and how quickly air filters sell out.

    Double edit: bitly links to amazing video of the low pas.

    Yikes that was close.

    A couple years ago near Inkom Idaho a small fire at the bottom of a mountainside was starting to get bad and luckily they sent out a couple water bombers . Very cool to watch from so close.

    trying this: https://bit.ly/2A9UgQz


    I recall many a fire day in Tucson over the years but the smoke was never as bad as in Seattle when BC burns. It gets so bad it is like Delhi or Beijing as far as pollution goes. The sun is a golden orb all day and it smells like being in a campfire for a couple of weeks. It is insane how bad it gets and how quickly air filters sell out.

    Double edit: bitly links to amazing video of the low pas.
    And whatever you do, do NOT watch any of the the videos below the bomber plane. Not without some kleenex handy, anyway. There's still more good than bad among us.
    Goya! It's got what plants crave. It's got electrolytes. Livin in an Idiocracy.

    I've seen them fly the retardant dropping 747 like a fighter plane here in the San Bernardino Mountains. It's some swashbuckling shit when they drop in and tightly bank, rolling over to drop on a ridgeline, or dropping into a canyon.

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    Close enough....
    Cottonwood Pass, a dusty old slide I took back around ‘99...Nearly same elevation as I recall, little over 12000 I think.
