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.

Money and Economy

Money and Economy
by Robert G Parent

Money, economy
Tight, slow
The people's choices
Make it good or bad

People only just have
The money they have.
Buy one product or service,
Cannot buy the other product or service

Some businesses can succeed, others cannot.
Jobs are inconsistent
In the service sector.

Jobs come and go
People cannot plan
Because we don't know how to
Make what we're gonna need.

Money tight
Economy slow
Change our thinking
Into our abundant nature.

Joy and Misery

Joy and Misery by Robert G. Parent

Joy and Misery
Those lovers walk hand in hand
Along the beach
In Summer's end.

To dare to dream
In a world of darkness
Trying to let your light shine
While others tell you what to do.

The seed trapped in the ground
Dreams of something more
Using its will, pushes towards
The warm earth.

Time moves on
Season to season
Patiently the seed pushes
Until the higher light seen.

To begin its true journey
In the new world just begun
To contribute a verse
In the great poem of life .

The seed, the first thought
Trying to understand itself
In all the experiences of life...
Ah, Joy and Misery.

The Question not asked

The Question not asked by Robert Parent

I wrote this comment on one of Dr. Deepak Chopra's videos "How Can You Trust Your Senses & How Can You Trust Reality?"

I do agree that without all the labels we are part of the same consciousness, let's say the Human Consciousness.  But we are different in our expression and experiences.  But this world, this Universe is not an illusion.  it is physical and we remember our past life that we have lived so far with all our experiences. Why do we need to have experiences? Why was the Earth and Universe created?  Why did we create illusion? No one really asks these questions. But we all do ask, what is the purpose? Why do we ask this question?

You only find the right answer by asking the right questions.
