'Productivity' Chapter


Do you feel productive today? There is that question of if we are productive enough, but the only reality behind that is the measure to which we are satisfied or frustrated with our activities. Part of you knows that if you aren’t engaged in the life process you aren’t being “productive/reproductive”. Basically you risk death, even if only spiritual. Everything is productive to the degree that it permits the wellbeing of the life form. Be fertile, be reproductive, be productive, be alive. How is that for a to-do list? Get that done and I feel you will have been productive enough. What about you?

“As the soil, however rich it may be, cannot be productive without cultivation, so the mind without culture can never produce good fruit.” Seneca (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

“The desire to create continually is vulgar and betrays jealousy, envy, ambition. If one is something one really does not need to make anything -and one nonetheless does very much. There exists above the ”productive” man a yet higher species.” Friedrich Nietzsche (German classical Scholar, Philosopher and Critic of culture, 1844-1900.)

Willingness To Engage

A right level of productivity is measured by having a good feeling of engagement in life. An instinctive sense of “fullness” and a sense of continued willingness to engage. Even rejecting a metaphysical explanation, the body has an awareness of… Seek More

Understanding A Dynamic

The topic is productivity. We tend to be very concerned with productivity, don’t we? Even if you aren’t employed? It’s a convoluted idea, this productivity. Have any of you spent a day doing literally nothing ever? Everything gets done always,… Seek More

Impulse Originates Thought

Have any of you ever had a day when you had no impulse to do anything at all that day? Have any of you had a day where you had no impulse to act? Are you saying that a day… Seek More

We All Belong

Desire forms are “emotional” forms, and in my opinion not the same as thought forms. Emotional forms are closer to Plato’s first forms, though there are forms that precede emotion. Do you all feel satisfied with your level of self… Seek More

Being Is Productive

Empathy. Awareness of feeling. I am open to feeling, so I don’t have to own another persons feeling. They can have what they feel and I can offer my presence. If the person is encumbered by their feelings, they can… Seek More
