You will not be able to adequately respond to the following questions if you have not read the textbook/article readings, listened to audio/s, and watched videos that have been assigned for the week
that the reflection papers are due (depending on the week, a combination of all or some of the listed
methods of delivery will vary).
This is a difficult assignment and a close and careful reading of the ideas are necessary. So take
your time and read and re-read the views of the thinkers mentioned here that are difficult to
understand.
Your response to the questions will reveal the amount of time, effort and reflection you have put
into this assignment.
The amount of time, effort and reflection that you have spent on this assignment will give a certain
value to your writing. In other words, you and you alone will determine what your grade for this
assignment will be.
Write this essay for yourself to gain a better understanding of who and what you are and the social
environment in which you live and the ways it impacts and influences you. .
Do not write this paper for the instructor or for a grade: it will be a waste of your time writing it
and a waste of the instructor’s time reading it.
These questions have haunted humanity for millennia and do not have easy answers.
Create your own answers with the tools that you have been given by life and this class.
Remember unreflective and superficial responses will seriously jeopardize your passing of this
class.
Note on writing the Bi- weekly journal/s
•
Be mindful that the posted materials on Canvas cover a lot of philosophical and religious
territories.
• They have been laboriously created and protected by the peoples of each land for hundreds, if not,
thousands of years.
• They are profound and dense and have for thousands of years been a GPS to life, or a map
towards living perhaps a more meaningful life.
• Though they do not fetch much respect in the modern world, they still deserve your careful study
and understanding their world view.
Therefore:
•
•
•
•
Stay away from rushed and superficial responses.
Stay away from book reporting or copying and pasting.
Make sure your responses have depth and substance.
Make your responses are engaging and creative.
•
•
Make sure that you demonstrate the practicality of these ideas by inserting them into your own
daily life and life experiences.
To better understand these ideas, provide examples from your life within the context of the
subject materials
Note on how to improve your writing
Your writing is an expression of your thinking. Thinking can either be reactive or reflective. Reactive
thinking is rooted what your social environment has given you. What you have received from your
environment is important as they are necessary tools that help navigate through the various complexities
of life. However, such thinking is simply parroting back ideas given to you by your environment with
little to no understanding. This will ultimately lead to forming many assumed and biased-laden ideas
about yourself, others and the world in general. This is Plagiarized Thinking and the tragic fate of many
adults- professional and otherwise.
Reflective thinking is the outcome your own struggle to truly want to understand the grand puzzle or
pieces of the grand puzzle called Life. . This form of thinking contains depth, substance and intense
emotions. In the world of philosophy it is called: Wisdom—a gift from the gods. It is the outcome of an
Examined Life.
Reflection is an outcome of quietly examining and observing an idea or a set of ideas, or an experience.
To do this, you must first become interested in such a task which is an enormously difficult journey as it
demands detached observation that could lead to a relative objectivity. This you do not because you want
to improve your grade, but simply because you wish to refine your thinking process, your reflective
abilities, and the manner you observe the world around you. And, ultimately, because you wish to
understand and refine yourself, your life and experiences that life will gift you. This requires much time
and patience– about ten-to-fifteen years of serious and honest study and practice. Once you have
mastered the art of thinking, your writing will then slowly but gradually improve.
This is your story, your maze and your perplexity! This assignment allows you a glimpse into your own
flaws as well as perfections. Take it seriously and, at the same time, have lots of fun with it. It is, after
all, about you, your thoughts and your emotions. I hope you have enough interest in yourself to
explore and discover your own thoughts and emotions. You are to answer all of the questions.
As always remember that language is the art of persuasion. So your task is to convince me that
you understand the materials and are able to convey whatever your position may be regarding
the tales and or the prompts.
Respond to each question and sub-question separately. Make sure to first write out the question
(copy/paste) so that the instructor can clearly know to which question you are responding. Each
question is worth 20 points.
1. Choose any two audios AND two videos.
2. In your own words, discuss and critically analyze the major points in each of the audio and video.
3. In your own words, give at least two detailed examples accompanied with detailed explanations
as to how they relate to society.
4. In your own words, give at least two detailed examples accompanied with detailed explanations
as to how they relate to your personal life.
5. Finally, how, in your opinion, can the ideas discussed in the audios and videos be implemented in
society and your own personal life?
a. What steps are necessary and how do you create or make those steps available so that
those ideas can in a very practical way be implemented in society and your own personal
life. Make sure you map out the steps in order.
An example of the sort of thought process you should be going through when you are watching the
videos, listening to the audios, reading articles, and ultimately, writing you reflection paper.
a) Video or audio speaks of consuming alcohol or watching porn to the point of being categorized as
an addiction.
b) Pros and cons of consuming alcohol or watching porn.

watching porn.
d) Dollar amount spent by companies to lure individuals towards consuming alcohol or watching
porn.

g) What would happen if that dollar amount or time was to be spent towards helping the homeless,
the poor or education?
h) Why isn’t that money spent on, for example, homelessness, poverty or education?

forces as depression, loneliness, grief, anger, frustration, etc.

q) Reasons as to why a culture would want to create such forms of coping mechanisms for its

grief, anger, frustration, etc.
