What is there to life is what we make of it and how we spend our time. We have to prioritize our lives so that we can live balanced lives so that we can be healthy minded and emotionally stable to being spiritually filled with having relationships that are endearing.
I believe that we evolve lesson by lessons so that we can experience life more rounded. There is a problem with that however, we have to go through the pains of life so that we can learn what the purpose of life really means to us on a personal level.
Relationships, relationships, relationships with people are the essence of life and it leads to knowing the ppurpose of life. We cannot walk around in fear anymore. Fear is the biggest block that anyone faces when they go to change. We have to be stretched in order to experience more of life, and it is a good thing even though it is very uncomfortable for just awhile. It is so worthwhile to be stretched and losing the fear by overcoming.
There are some people that feel hopeless and helpless when it comes to life’s issues. Some have had responsibility thrown at them at such an early age. Circumstances that can dramatically change a person’s life. If we believe in God or a Supreme Being, then we know that we are being watched over and so we shall not hear life and what life throws at us.
The young woman in the video below had a near death experience, listen to what she says about taking her own life because she had been fighting depression for years. I want to say that God is everywhere and He probably weeps because of the sin upon the children of His Creation.
There is a season for suffering in a person’s life and there can be many of these seasons of suffering for some strange reason than to make us stronger, or “The Art of Suffering Discloses Itself To Whom Has Learned and Understood The Art of Compassion”. (Zen) We can only hope that we as a people will learn to get along with each other, so that the “Golden Rule” can live in the hearts of man. Treat others as you would have them treat you is going to change the hearts of man soon!
We have an awakening that is going to come to pass, and it is going to dramatically affect us in wonderful ways, providing you have faith and hope in mankind. We are lost but humanity is not dead! Life and its patterns go up and down, and so we are pretty down right now and so we learn how to problem solve.
We need to have a better sense of morality. We have gotten too loose and accepting, which has made our culture to be slothful, lazy, bitter, unforgiving, prideful, and many other social ailments that degrades the dignity of God’s Creations such as we are.
We just have to believe that life will get better and that we will find ourselves through the tunnel and into the light of knowing what our purpose in life is and experiencing it, personally. Through such an experience we are able to teach others to be kinder as well as grateful for what we have been given.
You will be surprised with this woman’s story. Please pass the video on because it may save a youngster’s life.

The other day my wife and I were talking about an acquaintance we know, and what came out of our conversation was that how can people know how to act when they do not have anyone that can be an example to them?
It is hard to lead by example because of the risk of being ridiculed by others that do not believe the same way we do. When we think about it, we can see how much our society has failed to present themselves as leaders in the how to field of ethical humanism.
Unfortunately there is a bigger problem we face today. The problem being that parents have failed to prepare their children for life situations, so they follow others that are not kosher to being respectful towards others that are in leadership roles.
Leading by example is tough because it is easier to “shoot the messenger because of the message”. Another problem we have is that people do not know if they are being lead by someone that is truly authentic in the way they say follow me because I have a plan.
There are many great deceivers in the world today and we have to look closer at the fruits of the person than listening to what they say. “Actions speak louder than words”. I cannot hear you because your actions are deafening my ears.
At the end of the day when we look at life, we can certainly see where our lives are headed because if we listen to the wrong voice given by someone with an agenda that is not cohesive to positive change in America, it cannot be good for us in the long run.
There has not been a better time in history like it is today for there to be another Gandhi to rise up and lead by example. What we need is a humanitarian leader that inspires people to do good for the sake of the world rather than our own personal ambitions. Where are these leaders and why have they not surfaced?
They will come at the appointed time according to God’s word through prophecy. I do not believe that they will be received well because Americans are looking for another charismatic rock star type of leader. For example, I believe that Mitt Romney would have been good to lead our nation, but the people did not receive him well because they were looking for a cool type of a person to be our president.
Sure there were things about Mitt Romney that did not gel right with the majority of people, why? I believe that Americans have shifted towards a more liberal stance in politics, despite the fact that we are needing to address issues such as abortion, immigration, healthcare, taxes, gun control, and many other issues that will require us to be more conservative so that we do not fall off the edge of humanity. We need to preserve wholesome ideology so that goodness does not become extinct or rare to find a leader that has a good principles and values system.
Why not YOU, why not you to rise to the demand of leadership even if it means to lift up your loved ones and as far as that goes, lifting up others as a way to lead by example? Yes, why not YOU?
“Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing”.

A Boss vs A Leader
A boss creates fear while A leader creates confidence. A boss fixes blame instead A leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all but A leader asks questions A boss makes work drudgery however A leader makes it interesting . A boss interested in themselves fortunately A leader is interested in the group.

Today we live in such a complex and stressful life and we have forgotten how to bring joy into our lives.
I read this posting our friend Brandon posted on Facebook and I felt that it was a very good topic to talk about. Thank you Brandon for inspiring me to write this post. The “Final Judgment” what does that mean? We know that we will be judged someday and we have to think about where […]
I had been on and off the streets and was fighting relapse for nearly two years. I have seen my good friend die on an overdose on a heroin mixed with cocaine shot ( speed ball ). It was a wake up call to me and that I knew I had to stay straight or I too could end up dead like him.
