    The word "atonement" can trigger thoughts of

    guilt, shame, and sin. But these are man-made. They are not from God. If we read and say the word as "at-one-ment", we feel a shift inside. We remember we are one with God. Living this truth frees us from concerns. This is the real meaning of atonement. It means alignment with...

    I think today was a day

    that was done before it even started and I should have just stayed in bed, and it all started last night. Funny how we can alow one event, one situation, one conversation to impact our whole next day. this can be a positive thing or negative it works both ways. For me this time...

    Maybe it's too much. Another year has past

    and I have been thinking, where I was, where I am, where I am going. I came to the realization that in pursuit of perfection, I hurt myself. I don't take risks because I am scared of failure. I have been living life so safe, that I am not living much of a life. My goal for this...

    I actually think way too much!

    But those are the downfalls of being left alone all day. So what I do is i'll be thinking of a time I really really liked then out of nowhere that will lead to something that happened that day and bothered me and next thing I know it becomes a problem all over again and its not...

    Even though I don't want to become married,

    have children, or a start a family anytime soon, I think about my future wife everyday. I wish her a wonderful everyday, and I hope that she keeps holding on little by little until she meets me. I hope she stays strong and keeps her head held high. I think about her, and even...

    Isn't it weird how we all have different

    obstacles in life. Any person you meet is dealing or has dealt with something life changing. Or made choices that they never thought would make such an impact in their life. I've met people that have had money and lost it all. I have met people that have been poor all their...

    Lately, there has been a few things on my mind

    and the one that sticks out the most is those disgusting stories about animal cruelty I see on my Facebook feed. I don't need to see those and I don't want to hear about it either. No wonder our animal population continues to plummet. It's sad that these animals have to have...

    now for 13 years almost. The other are I've been friends with for 4/5 years. What's playing on my mind though is... Am I doing something right or am I doing something wrong? If you understand what I mean... I just feel is it bad I'm still friends with them all and I'm not...

    Just A Quick Thought

    Is the reason that people find it hard to be happy, that they see the past better then it actually was? The present worse than it is and the future less resolved than it will be?

    ~and this is what I've been thinking about~

    Pslam 27:14 says: Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. In my opinion, "to wait for the Lord" does not in any way mean neglecting a problem in the hope that God will pop in and solve it for you. (God is not Santa Claus :) although, He can...

    A random thought popped in my mind that,

    we (life) all stem from the darkness. Our greatest ambition as conscious beings, is to accept the light as it shines upon us, and shows us in full swing what we are and what we do within the shadows of ourselves. As this occurs, we become afraid, as we finally realise that we...

    I am a thinker!! I spend a lot of time alone so I figure it is only natural to spend a lot of time thinking. I read a lot of books and really enjoy documentaries so I’m sort of one of those people who are full of completely useless information and in general I seem to know at...

    from my ex. She said she was sorry and that she was wrong to do such a thing to someone like me. She wants to start over. As this was my first time being cheated on, I do not know what to think. Of course, it did hurt when I found out she cheated. Uhh, I don't know what to do...

    For instance, has anyone else ever wondered

    if it's even possible to think "too much?" I mean if "too much" signifies an amount beyond possibility, how could you achieve it? If you thought "too much," it would exceed "thinking" and become something else entirely. Right? ;)

    The silence that comes from this loneliness

    closes in around me like four white walls trapping me until I can no longer breath and my screams of needing help, love, becomes less and less likely to be heard.

    Thinking About Everything

    What is 'happiness'? The world has offered us

    such a narrow view of what true happiness is. We believe happiness revolves around smiles, light heartedness, excitability and passion. Is this really what happiness is? A different perspective to offer is one of contentment. The contentment of just being. Crying whilst being...

    A Thought

    The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball, 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously an indication of just how skewed our perspective tend to be.

    I have been trying to get my life back on track.

    You just need to take that step back every once in a while, and look back on what you've done and where you went wrong and track it down to see where the malfunction is and try to correct it. In order for me to do that I needed a clear mind. In order to have a clear mind I had to...

    Do you believe that things happen

    for a reason? I've always thought it was a ridiculous idea altogether. If you give it enough thought you'll see that we mostly deny it because we're afraid of the fact that events might have a set course which is unchangeable, our controlling nature makes us reluctant about the...

    I wish people could just say how they feel like

    "hey I really don't like when you do that to me" or "hey I'm in love with you" or " hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time" without sounding desperate. Why can't everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble?
