    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...

    A Long and Lonely Journey
