    Still Got Some Way to Go....

    But I think I'm getting there :)   I'm still young. And everyday I'm learning more about myself. That's the truth part. I don't know myself completely, but I've noticed a change in myself in the past year. I guess it's just 'growing up', but it feels good to...

    What Is The Truth?

    We may never know the truth, maybe it's just not meant to be. I have realized that religions seem to have there parallels, but what seems to get to me is how much everything makes sense to me. If you are not understanding what I'm saying I'm going to tell you to watch this...

    Hello!

    If you don't want God, fine, I'll stop being whatever you said you wanted me to be.  God's Kingdom doesn't have to be run by Dad, me and holiness anymore.  But it was nice to get bunch of ideas from the time I was here.  Let's make a whole new world like this one...

    What you are about to read is fact. There are no embellishments, no deceit, and no misinformation. My name and age are irrelevant at this point in time, but my presence must be made public. What you are about to read is a revelation on life, a testament to truth, and an...

    Still Searching...

    I ended up on this website because I googled "searching for truth" (it's also the subtitle of my own website).   At the moment, I'm still searching... Over the past few years I've drifted from the general belief that 'there is a God' to Wicca...

    A Long and Lonely Journey

    I thank God that I was born into a family where going to church was 'optional' and not 'mandatory'.  My mind wasn't forced closed by all of the strict rules of conduct enforced by the church that would guarantee me an eternal seat in hell if I broke them. Instead, ...
