    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...

    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...

    The Deeper War On Terror Lies Within

    Yesterday we heard from a very dear friend in Tokyo. Her apartment was broken into Saturday night. Three men entered through the window, they tied her up with duct tape and ransaked the apartment, looking for money or drugs. They cut open and ripped apart every possession she had...

    Too "intelligent" For Our Own Good

    We're slowly "advancing" ourselves into extinction. The more people, the less trees. Frankly, I prefer trees.

    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...

    I do wish I had several close friends but you cannot trust people nowadays. People are not honest or loyal. Finding a true friend is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
