I write about a variety of subjects, often seemingly unrelated. My experience, and the experience of all of us if we choose to look at it, shows that this is not the case. In fact, everything is related. I love to read. Shakespeare, History, sociology, philosophy, religion, Spirituality, non-fiction, horror, romance, fairy tales, classics... there … Continue reading The Concept Of Everything
Something I have fought all my life is depression. If you look back at some of my other posts, sometimes it becomes obvious that I have it. When I was around 20 years old, I was diagnosed with what is called "Cyclothymia". An easier way to know what that is - A-typical bi-polarity (more extreme … Continue reading Depression Can Be A Bitch
The Spirit is always speaking to us, sometimes in small and subtle ways, sometimes in ways that are so obvious it seems hard to miss. If we are not getting the messages, then most likely we are not listening. For example, if there is an issue you are struggling with and you hear a song, … Continue reading Are You Listening?

And regardless of the circumstances, regardless of whether or not I was simply grounded to my room, spanked, or if it involved yelling at me, it always involved a lecture about … Continue reading Punishment and Healing
The temperature in the desert is up again, and so is the humidity. We've made some recent changes to our routine, adding in regular yoga and more meditation exercises, and I'm seeking to make other changes to remove some areas of negativity that have gotten unreasonable.

Today, I need to get personal, and I need to get real. I could ask the question, "What does it take to become a minister?", or make a comment regarding hypocrisy, and how most people (including myself), will make complaints about what other people are doing, but refuse to see it in themselves.

For most of my life, I hated being alone. I hated the fear of what was going to return, I hated the fear of not having done enough, or done something wrong.
