    Go Within

    Recently, while having a rare conversation with my wife that I love very much I suggested that she “Go within”. I did not realize the importance of what I was saying. Heloise was talking about her interest in healing with the aid of crystals and her intention of practicing...

    A Delicious Steak With A Hint Of Testosterone

    I am on a journey. I whet my skills to become better, to become more complex, to become useful and lovable. You know how people are jerks? How they are careless, thoughtless, merciless, greedy, mean, harsh, vicious, cold-hearted? Well, I thought to myself. Why should I settle for...

    people say they want to be changed into

    something great, or something bad. it always ends up into something worst for the cost at the end of it. don't change unless your heart disiers of what you want and whatever is good for your judgment etc.

    I struggle to let my ex go

    but if he's not the one God has for me I don't want him. It's hard to convince the heart to be logical but eventually I will. Because the carnal heart is inherently evil. I pray God will diminish my desires for the last man I loved.

    Love never guaranteed no pain,

    struggles or loss. But that love is what keeps you going for the other person. Not giving up hope, dreaming with them, inspiring each other. When things become dark it's time to look for the stars. Looking up forces us to keep our head up high & not give up. Loss is not an...

    I think the aceptance of how you behave yourself

    and being acountable for your words and actions is the only way you can begin to identify the changes that need to be made. . . .if you dont like something change it. . . its not gonna be easy but it will be worth it. . . . .

    After 4months of trying I had to let him go.

    We talked about it so many times and he always made a bunch of promises with no change. So eventually even though it hurt both of us I had to end things. I can try to change you but in the end I can only change myself.

    Care & Feeding Of The Mind

    The care & feeding of the mind is just as important as the care & feeding of the body. The mind unfed weakens just as the body does. The mind not sustained by the continual intake of something that is capable of feeding it well or nourishing it, shrinks and shrivels. And it all...
