I Seek Enlightenment

    I'm Sooooo Confused....

    I am a 56 year old gay white male.  I started off my spiritual journey with my grandfather telling me about Jesus when I was a small child.  I "grew up" in the Lutheran church.  In April of 1971 I learned Transcendental Meditation.  About that same time I was exposed to using...

    Internet Entry #1 I have started writing a

    (paper) diary-journal in purpose of getting out of the hole I've dug myself into. Most people think they can think but thought is an art and work together and no one is signing up for a course; I know because of the negative connotative redefinition of humanity I've come to...

    I think what makes Love beautiful is the fact

    that most of the time we cannot have what we want. The struggle happens only when we try to wrestle with this fact.

    I think there's no right direction.

    We are all paving an unique path. But I guess one's purpose is lost when one gets on to the highway which consists of a lot of people. :)

    I don't think Forgiveness

    and Love exist on the same plane. Judgement and forgiveness do. You can only forgive those whom you have judged. Love keeps no record of wrongs and hence it can't forgive.

    I don't want to repeat the loop infinitely

    since "the incident." We both acted like nothing happened, but I can tell he is upset. He also has a girlfriend, who I've actually never met. We've been friends for 4 years, and they've been dating for almost a year and a half. From what I've heard about her I already don't like...

    I think I'm fine not talking to him,

    then I get into bed, then I start thinking and thinking, I know I'm going to break, so I pick up my phone and text him, something simple, like how's your day been? He last replied 6 hours ago, he seemed fine when I replied? He wasn't being blunt with me or anything? He even said...

    I'm happy to know that it ends,

    that there is a day when I'm not here anymore, it magically makes me see the real value of this moment. That there will be a time when I will be amazed by everything again, and everything will be new. In my most spiritual moments I've seen places beyond this earth, moments...
