    The Power Of Now - Part 2

    I completed my first listen, and am inspired. I immediately started again from the beginning, it's that kind of book. And I figure I'll listen over and over until it burns in. Like you, I'm at a crossroads in my life. For me, experience tells me *I* must change before my...

    But It Is Which Path To Take...

    I think that there is always choices in our lives and we stop to wonder where will I be when I get to the end of this road?   But our choices that are being made may not affect the today but in the future, it is always dramatic when we look at a side by side...

    I love helping people,

    and I love music, but I've been a stuntman ever since I was 6. When I help people I give it my all and always try to achieve the goal, I often use music to spread the word of god, faith, & LOVE. After all love is my ultimate message. Stunts though make me feel good, I am...

    The Road Less Traveled.........

    How often we must bear the challenges of life; The endless roller coaster between happiness and sorrow; The constant ups and downs of daily strife. And always the question remains .... why? Life is not an easy road for most; It twists and turns with many forks...

    Giving Up Or Letting Go?

    I recently quit a job after 6 years. All i have ever wanted was to work there and be one of them. In these 6 years I have mostly worked my *** off. I went to some important people to ask help in making me regular but every door closed on me. I suffered vacations, quarrels at home...

    I was fearless. I challenged myself,

    I accepted the bad and shared the good. I lived a life of adventure. I found my path in life. I fed my nomadic soul and watched it grow. I liked myself in spite of my many faults. I was strong. Till one day, I found out I was vulnerable and that my soul could not hold together...

    I've Been Here Before

    I don't know if where I am now actually qualifies as a crossroads anymore. I know what my choice is going to be. The hesitation is really for the people around us. Still I could just go on as it is now so, in that sense, I guess crossroads is the term. Let's just hope that...

    Go Confidently In The Direction Of Your Dreams!

    I am finding myself at a crossroads. Currently I am at a stand still, and I really need to move. I'm blocking the road. I had been traveling along my road, there were the normal twists and turns. A few speed bumps, a pot hole here and there, even a couple of detours. But I...

    Decision

    I think the crossroads are never far away.  But sometimes they are very objectively there because we stand in the middle.  We're passing from one stage in life to another and we have to take decisions.  Even not taking them is a way to decide.   Recently...

    The Power Of Now - Part 1

    I just recently downloaded "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle as an audio book and am already finding it ...intriguing. So far the material is basically Zen, but draws on aggregated spiritual systems, some philosophy and social psychology. The format is a sort of Socratic...

    I don't know if I can take it anymore.

    It's a lot of verbal and physical abuse in the home to the point where I feel it's not safe here for me. But I have four wonderful siblings that despite the fact get on my nerves, I can't leave. At least not yet. But it gets so much sometimes. I'm not sure whether if I can...
