    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 saw Andrew for the first time today

    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'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...

    I don't want to repeat the loop infinitely

    until this world kill us because we have killed it, the path of freedom may involve removing our ego and ourselves from the ecuation, only then we can be truly free because we are not tied to our limitations and we have nothing to prove to anyone. Life is chaotic and there is...

    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

    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

    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...
