    The best advice is none,

    which leaves you in your own shoes to find answers to your questions you've found.

    Inside

    Epeeps started to comment on an older post I had. Thank you, Princess. So you may take this story as a sequel to that one. Giving a brief introduction among ourselves, we took turns in a circle saying 2-3 sentences about us that first came to mind as the question was asked...

    On my own path because society sucks nowadays.

    You follow society, you get dumber by the moment, your distracted and drawn further away from your spiritual path to the point where you become so stupid, you're lost. Wake up, and pay attention to the traps. Don't fall through with the rest of them. seriously.

    I'm on a Spiritual Path to understanding

    There is a saying that God watches out

    for those who watch out for themselves. At first glance it may sound cynical or sarcastic. But I believe it is not. It is very true. If we listen, we will hear that inner voice telling us that something is not a good idea, for example. Or if we stay watchful, we are less likely...

    I do not believe in coincidences.

    Things happen for a reason when they happen. For example: Today is Good Friday for those of us who are Christians it is one of the most solemn days, the day when we remember the Lord's death on the cross. Since I am not going to church this evening, I decided to at least...
