    Listening To Others

    It is amazing what we can learn simply from listening to others. Sometimes we learn about what we should do, what not to do, and even something about ourselves. From my friends I have learned a great many things about the world and myself. It is interesting to listen to others...

    Balance

    I have a very difficult time achieving balance in my life. I tend to obsess over one aspect of my life and let it dominate my being. Whether it be searching for a new job, reading self help books or being in a relationship. I let that one thing be my identity. I have a one track...

    My Mind Is a Sponge

    Have you ever sat and wished that you knew everything? I have, a lot. Many times when something goes wrong, I stop and say "See, If I knew everything, I could have avoided/prevented that." I love to take IQ tests and watch Trivia type game shows. I used to tell people...

    Perfection?

    I have never completed anything in my life, because to complete something is to make it perfect. For if it is not perfect, there is still work to be done. So my goal in life used to be perfection, but now it is completion. I want to live a complete life, and I want to...

    I Hope I Will Find It

    Only the fool seeks not wisdom, only the fool. Not to be confused with intelligence. I know wise people who can't do math. Intelligence is what you know, wisdom is how well you use what you know. Ideally a brilliant person should have both. Anyhow, I love the pursuit...

    Lasting Impact

    Over 25 years ago, I had a good friend who told me some wise words - wiser than my youth could comprehend at the moment. This is the short version of that story and I think its simplicity is worth noting. As a child, I had a friend who couldn’t swim and was afraid of...

    Genesis

    In the beginning there was only you and I, and a universe in which we found ourselves together, one in all and each. In the beginning there were only eyes to see, and hands to hold, and we were brave before we ever knew we needed to be bold. As stars swung by in gravity or love...

    All comes and go . Nothing remains .

    And the song is on repeat over and over again. A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises. The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around...

    Pottery

    I once visited a pottery-making shop. A guy, who was probably in his mid-50s, was showing us how a jar is made. He said you have to have the correct hand pressure to shape the clay. I was amazed as he slowly mold the clay into a beautiful jar with his gentle yet firm hands...

    Wisdom
