    Nobody's An Island

    I've heard that saying time and time again. It's supposed to be a metaphor for someone to ask for help. I took it a different way. I'm not sure where I learned what it meant to be a hypocrite, but I knew I didn't want to be one. I also wanted to know what the **** I was talking...

    From "Being Peace"

    I just read this, this morning, and thought it would be a fitting follow up to MakingPeace's story...  "Many of us worry about the world situation.  We don't know when the bombs will explode.  We feel that we are on the edge of time.  As individuals, we...

    What Would the World Be Like If We Valued Wisdom More?

    Recently I've been talking with various people about some of the world's problems, and it seems to me like humans are complete idiots sometimes. (Note: I include myself in that assessment!). We do the most foolish self-destructive things, and the future for our children and all...

    A Strange Mixture

    Humans are a strange mixture. We have such incredibly advanced brains with processing and reasoning capacities far beyond the most advanced super-computer, and yet we have such base instincts. We're ruled by such primitive emotions as fear, anger, greed, lust. It's almost as if a...

    I'd like this, but as the years pass by, opportunities to meet people become limited and therefore, chances to truly bond with other humans are more or less non-existent.
