    I am nothing that navigates its way through

    everything in an attempt to become something. Nevertheless, anything will be dissolved by everything back into the state of nothingness. But nothing is everything, and everything is ultimately nothing... and something is just an illusory attempt to make sense of everything made...

    Getting divorced has been a heart breaking

    experience. What I am left with is a big emotional ball of feelings I have to untangle. Today...it is depression for a lack of a better word. Untangling depression is work. Today I will focus on a simpler strand although I keep going back to love loss. It's too much work and...

    Discipline

    if there was a single most important lesson I should learn in this life, I think this is it. discipline. I've struggled with it ever since I was a child, and now it seems even harder. but I firmly believe I can keep learning, and I can keep working on myself, as long as I see...

    Lately I've been able to differentiate between

    my mind and myself. I know I'm not my mind, and now with that idea in my head I've been able to "observe" my thoughts easier and watch them pass. Especially when I'm picking up things about people, it makes it a lot easier to tell which thoughts are mine and which are theirs :)

    I was only young when I lost my world.

    She was my cousin, my childhood best friend and my soulmate. I wish I knew why God had to take her so young, and why she had to die in pain and suffering but I was left completely in the dark. I knew I'd never be the same, no matter how much I would heal I'd still be numb. No...

    Let people hate you, let them judge you,

    I think the religious concept of sin is widely

    misunderstood and skewed. Sins are not wrong. Sins are not even bad. In fact, sins have nothing to do with a divine standard or metric which we're all being judged against at all. When you can remove their poetic and historical overtones, sins are just mistakes; errors in...

    Mortal combat What are these feelings?

    From where do they come? It's like a million little things, have piled into one. They build up together, in the dark parts of my mind. And gather their fury, in the parts I am blind. How long has it been? Have I not taken care? My ego tells me lies, it keeps me unaware. It...

    I have no idea what's this feeling of "missing"

    and longingness. Someone shared a word "toska" in a group. I do not know if the meaning of that word is enough to describe this kind of mixed feelings of longingness, emptiness and yearning to find that something...That seems lost. It's more of a spiritual quest. You...

    Anyone have feelings like some major event

    or something is going to happen? Something world wide or nation wide. I can't kick this feeling. Maybe not soon but I feel like people are "waking up" for s reason. Like we're being called upon for something. Or maybe it's just me overthinking this haha

    Would like to know your perspective on this

    : If you say you love someone but you're saying it because you're feeling good about yourself in their company, you're actually using them to feel good about yourself. Indirectly, you are being with these person for a selfish reason. What do you say?

    and the rate at which I'm changing as a person is beyond description. Every time I think I'm complete as a person and that I don't need to know anything else there's always something I find or discover which tells me otherwise. It's an extremely rapid process, so much so, that...

    So many paths I can take at this point in my

    life but the hardest part is choosing the path...fear of choosing the wrong one and how it will affect everyone in my life...but mostly my soul...who will leave my life because of the path I chose and how can I deal with that guilt of letting some down; what karma will I reap?

    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...

    It occurs to me that

    while spiritual texts such as the bible were inspired in their writing, there needs to also be inspiration in the reading. The Holy Spirit guiding both the writers and the readers. Without the Holy Spirit scriptures are like a lock without a key.

    So you want to be happy?

    Well everyone wants to be happy. The trick is to find the "way" or to find your purpose. Self aware people don't try to tread on paths their feet were not made for. You are a "type" of person. The trick is to accept it and not worry or even think about what others opinions of...

    The Fact Of The Matter (1989)

    I was dying of alcoholism and drug addiction. I've been to jails. wrecked cars, walked on the railing of bridges with about a 200 ft drop waiting to die. My experience as the result of the steps in A.A. changed all that. Some for the good. Some for the bad. But ultimately it...

    The endless battle over GOD.

    ..In one aspect, I think the only way to reach God, to really feel this higher presence/universal presence is through self discovery of who you are. Religion is not the only way. I believe our astral souls are forever.. How can anyone believe we die ? What.. We come to earth and...
