concerned in NH

Concerned in NH
By Robert G Parent

It's been awhile since I updated this blog. My anxiety and stress are great at this time. I've been looking for a job, a career. Trying to be optimistic, being pushed down because of the state of the economy, this current environment has left me mentally and emotionally weak. It's difficult to see hope vanish. I wonder how the majority of people feel at this moment who elected President Obama. How can those politicians forget how its like to be at your lowest point with no hope? I wonder if they have ever known. It seems that those politicians only know or strive for power, not service of the true community. We know what happened to Anakin Skywalker in Revenge of the Sith. Can people still make a difference? I don't know because my optimism is very low. It's so low that I wrote this twitter poetry: choice/none in healthcare/none in full-time jobs/not enough money to live/I take that final sleep/and weep silent tears. Where do I go now?

The Day the Music Died

I wrote this February 18, 2011. I still do wonder what is happening to this country and this world. Why are people still caught up in this socialist utopia idea?

The Day the Music Died by Robert G Parent

Somewhere over the rainbow
healthcare is free,
I mean really free,
workers make all they need
for family and stuff.
People aren't over worked
and have plenty of time
with family and friends.

Somewhere over the rainbow
there is a new order
to the world,
where people work together
for a common goal,
exploring and building
a civilization in space

Let us all eat
of the Apple
and give ourselves over
to the illusion
of a socialist Utopia.
Free will, free speech,
and free enterprise
is over.

Let us all celebrate this day,
the day the music died.

Nuclear Energy -- beyond the fear

This is something that I wrote on October 26, 2014 as I was waking from sleep in the morning.

Nuclear Energy -- beyond the fear by Robert G Parent

Nuclear Energy, just the mention of the word throws some people into fear.  This is understandable because every person on this Earth has seen the power of a Nuclear Weapon and the shear destruction of its energy when it's released.  People also see the radioactive waste left behind by the nuclear power plants as man tries to release and use the energy of the atom.  Some people fear nuclear energy for those two reason that I just gave; and because of this fear, people miss the beauty, the perfection of the atom.  Think on this, all that energy that we've seen comes from a little package that is so small we cannot see it with our naked eye.  It is perceived that nuclear energy comes from nothing, but it's not nothing. The atom is a small building block that makes everything in the Universe. Maybe if we stop fearing the energy that comes from the atom, and start seeing the atom with new eyes is when we as a human species will make that jump into a higher, more mature consciousness.  It is a good thought to ponder on, right?

my accounting class

My Accounting Class -- a lesson for all
by Robert G Parent

I had not realized that its been almost a month since I wrote on this blog.  I've been busy at work and school, but this is no excuse for forgetting my writing obligations.  That being said, I am back.  I had an assignment in class to write a self assessment, while this is a good idea for anyone to do on occasion, I'm not printing it here on the blog, but instead is something that I wrote before the self assessment which I thought is very valuable to share with others. It is about something that I hear every election by people who truly don't understand.  My prayer is that they come to an understanding on business and with that understanding make a better community. Hope you enjoy it.

I wondered how this course was going to be at the beginning. I mean how can anyone have a conversation about accounting. Well, people can discussion accounting and it can be interesting.  One thing that I learned is how to look at a company's financials and determine how the company is doing, well anyway when I learn more about accounting I could do this better.  Many people don't know what goes on behind the financial statements of a company.  I think people need to know this, to come to an understanding of the business process.  In every political election and even before and after, I hear people talk negatively about how bad are businesses.  While there are some bad businesses, the majority of businesses are good and are part of the natural ecosystem that makes up a healthy community.  The exchange of goods and services are more then just making a profit. It's about people sharing their gifts with the community that they live.

A New Community is the heart of capitalism

A New Community is the heart of capitalism
by Robert G Parent

I wrote this post in response to a You Tube video.  The titles of the video is “Dan Watkins on the Welfare State.” it is in the Ayn Rand Institute Channel at Ayn Rand Institute posted on August 13, 2014.

Don, have you ever been on welfare?  It's no easy money.  A person on welfare gives up their hopes and dreams as well. But they do this so their family can be fed and taken care of.  The young does need to care for the old.  But our whole society is not run the way its supposed to be.  We, in society, don't know the true meaning of community.  The heart of true capitalism is within true community.  Everyone gives to the community so that the community can give to them.  We all came into time to share the gift we each have.  That is what work is, sharing our gift for the benefit of others.  When our hearts are right, sharing can come.  But the problem of the past was with this thought was that the government tried to manifest it by force.  Good done by force is evil. True community has to manifest out of the hearts of humanity by their choice.  it has always been this way and will always be this way.  We do need to do something about this debt that the government did because we the people let them do it.  If we don't do something, everyone's choice will be limited until the problem is fixed. We need to have faith, heart, and courage to make the changes that we need to make.

Where is our focus?

Where is our focus?
 By Robert G Parent

People focus to much on the physical plane. Like in religion, religion is recorded history that doesn't have anything to do with spiritual law or spiritual reality. It's time that we as a human species evolve from that old belief and truly focus on the spiritual facts about our higher selves, and the totally of our one life.

Spiritually should be about our growth as children of the one God, or our God beingness. Each of us are a part of one whole, imagine if we thought as this in our current body.
