William, you should consider making an exploration of Taoist philosophy.
Many of the ideas you have presented (particularly harmony and balance, fair treatment of others, etc.) are deeply explored in its writings. . . more than 2000 years ago.
I'd recommend Lao Tzu's "Tao-teh-Ching" to start. There are about a zillion translations of the work, but my favorite, so far, is the translation by John C. H. Wu. Amazon.com: Tao Teh Ching: Lao Tzu, John C.H. Wu: Books
Do me a favor, and at least take a peek at it. I found some of its ideas to be literally life-changing. But that's just me. Your mileage may vary....
Thank you TTM, for you contribution. If it is your concern as it relates to aiding me in finding a peace to my life and like thought to comfort me, I so very much appreciate that kind gesture. Much of what I espouse can be found in the thoughts of Eastern philosophy. As they also can be found in all tenets that represent the thoughts of mankind. For those who find solace in the philosophy and wisdom of the East you are indeed fortunate if they can find the discipline it takes to maintain that peace in this reality we call life.
The Eastern mind, in that it equates "suffering" as an integral part of life is a tenet I refuse to accept. Nevertheless it does offer a peace amid all the chaos, and for that it most assuredly has it purpose and thank God it exist's as I am sure it is meant to be. But to assume "suffering" is part of life, I will never acclimate to. Never. The only suffering I care to experience is that often perplexing enigma of what the dryer did with the mate to this sock. Ha. That's about it.
Other than that, suffering, as far as I am concerned is not a polarity of the nature that drives the universe. No way, no how. So to assume it is something we must endure for us to appreciate what the good life has to offer is a load of hogwash. Yes, there are "negatives" that point us to the positives of life, but suffering has nothing to do with that. Man caused suffering, and it will be incumbent on man to end it. It will only come as a collective effort of all.
For a moment if you will, imagine you are an egg, and I am water, across the street is wheat, and down the road it leavening, followed closely by fire and then that little bit of salt brings up the rear. Now individually they have their own properties, characteristic's, flavors, uses, and taste's. Now using them together we create "bread". Mankind is no different and there is only one way for all the ingredients to cooperate together and that is aligning to that "core" from which they all come. Just as we make that bread that gives us nourishment, that "core" creates that "bread"we call life, that uses us, "those ingredient's", to guide and define that life.
Now I know this sounds like it come's from a religious structure, but we cannot dismiss the wisdom that can be derived from it as we cannot ignore that we get from those interpretations we get from the East, or from the Hindu, or the family, or individual's knowledge, or individual's experience, or the individual's talent's, or the individual's labor, or ignore their willingness to participate in life no matter how small the contribution may be.
The problem we have existing in this reality is power takes the bread and uses it to control us, rather than nourish us. It's time we shared the bread that is life or we will all starve to death.
