    What About the Children

    A neighbor stopped over to my house last night.  His 10 year old son plays here often and is a wonderful boy.  The dad (and mom) were drunk as skunks when they showed up at my house to check on their kids playing in my yard.  The dad staggered around, made rude...

    LITANY AGAINST FEAR I must not fear.

    Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will...

    There's nothing more empowering

    And so far it's been Amazing.

    Looking back on everything, all the ups and down, the person I was then and now, it's almost unbelievable. I've come a long way and so many of my goals are within sight. I have learned a lot about myself, what I do want, and what I will never accept. I know who I am, and I trust...

    I read a little snippet of wisdom today

    that said: "Sometimes in order to follow your heart you have to lose your mind." While I can comprehend how beautiful and poignant these words are, they almost make me feel hollow. I don't want to lose my mind to the allure of any one thing. My heart is a slave to grievance...

    I Hate The Alchemist

    Just a poorly written book by a guy who had a lotta fluff and no stuff. I think there are better spiritual books out there. Could you recommend any that are spiritual without being religious? The only two religions that truly speak to me are Zen Buddhism and Wicca.
