Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? While I imagine almost everyone has asked his or herself that same question, I have yet to meet anyone who openly wanted to discuss the question over coffee and chocolate chip cookies. I like chocolate chip cookies. The Oxford Dictionary defines purpose as, “the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.” Nietzsche said of purpose, "To forget one's purpose is the commonest form of stupidity." The basic premise of Nietzsche argument is not only that we all have a purpose in life but that ignoring one's purpose... Read More
He Will Wipe Away My Tears
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
It all started about the year 1997, I stated getting pain and spasms right below my neck and into my shoulder blades. It would last about two days and go away for about a month. I noticed that when it came back it got worse and spread throughout my body. I was not a christian at the time. My walk with God started in 2001. Anyway I didn't have insurance for along time, we moved to... Read More
You have an energy in you. You feel it building, through the hours, through the days, and through the years. Perhaps from success, perhaps from suffering, no matter how, it builds. It longs to be let out, to be used. You feel the need to do something. Celebrate, cut loose, anything! You feel the need to do, do, do something. Now, slow down for a second. You can use this energy for something. Wait before you spend it. Acknowledge it. Then use it to create something...words, music, art, or an idea. Anything to bring life. The energy is there. You will do one of two things, destroy or... Read More
At anytime, there is a correction
to start over, without exception
unconfined by election
no holds barred, no friction
no need for deep inspection
release yourself to a new direction
no chains surround, nowhere to check in
one more time, an election
to start over, takes only selection

If I type in '2012 blogs' to Google, it brings up a staggering 261,000,000 items. Now they may not all be individual blogs, but it would be safe to say if you hadn't heard about all the gloom and doom merchants you're probably 'living under a rock!' So the big question is:- "Will it happen?" I've got to say straight up that I don't know anymore than anyone else. It may all happen Dec. 21, 2012, or it may happen May 6, 2010, or Jan. 4, 2025 or April 12, 2130. But the odds on it or any other 'end of world' scenario being correct are infinitesimally small.
So let's examine the main claim... Read More
No excuses anymore, no not for a moment, for who I am. Continuing on, pressing against a rush of water, the tide of public opinion and internal questions. I lift a weary hand to grab hold of the branches of promise jutting out of the banks at every turn, guardians to help in the unsure and trying times. Inch by painstaking inch I struggle through the cold waters, surrounded by banks of slippery self esteem. When I try to crawl out, I slide back quickly, if not for the holds I kicked in the mud, pats on the back, given only by me. I can see in the distance the calm lake, a haven of peace,... Read More
It has been said, that it's not the experience of pain that brings hopelessness, i'ts the inability of pleasure to bring satisfaction. What do I do when what is supposed to make me happy no longer does? How then will I find the will to live? What purpose will I serve? My desire for pleasure is like a fire. It is never full, I keep feeding it and uses that up and wants more. No matter how much I give it, it is never satisfied. Soon the glowing embers of want beckon for more fuel. At this point, there must be a resetting of my pleasure threshold. In this lies at least one purpose to... Read More
