    When I was in college I took a couple of

    philosophy and religious courses. I learned a tremendous amount of material about many of our world's greatest philosophical leaders and their beliefs. I am very glad I took them and have applied many thoughts and ideas in my own life. While on other hand, I dismissed some...

    Worked Up 0ver Nothing

      There is so much I have to say. So much I can tell you that you don't see. It drives me insane how I wish to tell you and the words begin to formulate and then how the problems begin to pile. So that as I order them they fumble into every place and crevice of thought until...

    Jesus said: You are the light of the world.

    I say: The light can not be overcome by darkness. Information can not be destroyed by non-information. Potato-God, that which may be mentioned, are forced to some form of existence. The present is the only thing that can be sensed, the present is the light. Past and future can...

    Sophie's World - By Jostein Gaardner

    This is the book to read if you love philosophy.  I haven't read it all yet because I'm trying to digest it slowly.  It's not a very easy read but certainly great for those  interested in philosophy.

    Awkward Conversationalist

    No To Paradox. . . Yes To Musings.

    Philosophy could be entertaining. It gives you a free pass to be an observer and to be more of a humorist with a bit of sarcasms keeping up with life's turns, and ups and downs. It keeps your mind away from being idle, and sometimes it lets you act from what is expected or what...

    Light is darkness

    Philip of Macedonia raised his son among lions

    to instill fearlessness in him. He also tried to impale him with a spear. Would the ends justify the means? History now remembers that boy as Alexander the Great.

    As we grow older our past tends to recreate

    itself in our minds. Don't think of the things you couldn't do, think of the things you can do now!. Sometimes we just gotta reach out into the unknown and experience the things that happen to help us grow.

    Movie Quote - Yvonne - Munich
