When I go to sleep at night, I do not feel pain or anguish. I am at peace with my maker. Knowing that I have spent a lifetime, and not had to kill anyone. Though there were times when I thought I "might" have to, I pity those who have. Every instance of potential deadly violence was defused with words or a light "scuffle".
When you carry peace in your heart, you can have peace in your life. And with the right kind of belief, ever lasting life.
There are two kinda people in this world
And Good People, who on occasion are a dirt bags.
Yes everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But what matters is-Who Gets Listened To The Most. Those who control the media control the hearts and minds of others. Another reason that an open internet is crucial for the benefit of mankind and a free and just society.
If a scientist tells you there is oil on your property-you find joy in believing him. And you would probably go into debt to try and pump and sell the oil. But if the same scientist tells you global warming is real and has empirical evidence to support it. You choose not to believe him because it puts a crimp in your lifestyle expectations and makes you feel guilty. So what is the denial about?-YOUR DESIRES AS AN INDIVIDUAL TO MAKE THE GLOBAL WARMING BOOGY MAN GO AWAY, SO YOU CAN DO AS YOU PLEASE AND NOT FEEL GUILTY. Denial is a bitch folks
There are times when all of us feel lonely or that life isn't what we think it should be.
I have these feelings, but then feel ashamed of myself. I watch as people come into my place of business, they hobble and can barely walk. Or they have some sort of physical deformity or bad damage to their face. They may have trouble speaking or even getting money out of there pockets. I look at them and feel sympathy and pain for them. Knowing there is little I can do. Then I think about myself and my thoughts. How ungrateful I am sometimes about the blessings which have been bestowed on me in life. Sure I have had my share of pain and sorrow. But I have been mostly healthy through out life. Have been considered by some to be attractive. And except for short periods of time, have never really suffered badly. So today I am reminding myself-yes God has loved me, yes he has cared for me, yes from now on I will try to be more grateful and less resentful. Because I could have been one of those who's lives are really bad which I see everyday. But I was spared from that. And never want to be ungrateful for it.
When I get the chance, and I browse friends profiles perhaps the most striking thing, is what people tend to post. No one ever captures people screaming at each other. Unless your a nihilist, we store memories of the happiest moments in our lives. or beautiful photos. Perhaps because happiness is the fundamental thing we look for as people. Maybe why I have learned to love the smiley . It always makes me happy to see people loving each other. Doesn't matter if it's family or friends. So For 2016 I wish you 365 days of smiles, laughter and joy. i am gonna try hard and hope you will to.-Gary
Yes it is becoming a real issue-Stop your carbon output as much as you can. Lights off when not in use-walk when you can,turn appliances down if possible,keep house heat at a lower level you can tolerate.
The 4th warmest January on record. This isn't a coincidence. It's a crisis.
Blaming an entire sex,religion, or group because one person hurt you. Is like trying to get bananas banned because you slipped on a peel.
I guess I am irritated-Losing a "friend", because someone else writes a joke that I think is funny and repost it-and they do not see the "funny" and then drop me because my other friends stick up for me was like-Really?
If you are so thin skinned in life that what others post bothers you that much-drop me please-I don't need the dumb head trips. THIS PLACE IS FREE-I don't get paid for what I do here. I do get paid for other places I participate in. And should not have to feel bad because of someone I don't really know.
Thought I would pass along a note-about Computers. I was using mine last night-suddenly it started acting flaky-so I rebooted. The bios said I see no hard drive. Tried again-same issue. I was to tired to deal with it-so I put another in its place. Woke up-opened it up unplugged the hard drive, and the memory-then put it back. Hit the power button-it booted up and worked just fine. Its all those cable and circuit connections. They oxidize over time and break connection. Unplug and replug-problem is gone. I have seen many computers sent to the dump that were just fine-They just needed the cables undone and redone
I was reading a blog somewhere and there was a post by a women who wrote:I don't like these Facebook pages about happiness, there almost cult like. Then I thought about what I do with my friends help-and I thought ok maybe it is a bit up beat-but who in the hell can't use a hand up. What is wrong with seeking joy over misery?-I have lots of bad days-but inside I need to try and find some joy. So who is really hurt here?
Good Luck LOL
Ok here is the trouble-I have nothing against Islam as a personal religious preference. But the constitution of the United States, the country I choose to live in, recognizes religious freedom. No where does it state that business's or individuals "must" cater to the demands of any given religion. Or that I must serve "ANYONE" who might offend my senses or present a potential risk to myself or business property. I don't let hoodies in because many hide guns in them or use them for easy shop lifting. I can use the same logic where a habib is concerned. An easy place to hide a weapon or stolen merchandise. Pure logic. So when muslims start asking for preferential treatment in the work place-I AM AGAINST IT. If they cannot adapt to the American way like everyone else-THEY SHOULD LEAVE. Like I said tonight I am making trouble. Why am I writing this, because apparently Home Depot is "training" it's managers to be muslim sensitive. No one ever made me take a class on Christian, Jewish, Or Buddhist sensitivity. If people do not stand up for there belief than what has America come to?
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future;it is something you design for the present.
They say that laughter is the best medicine.
Seldom do you see someone beating the crap out of somebody while there laughing.
One can be brilliant,witty,attractive,intelligent,forceful,dynamic,competent,professional, but if you have no kindness or love in your heart your still empty.
Everyone is handed a certain amount of power in life,
The smartest people in life, are those who learn not to use it.
No your life isn't perfect, yes people will cause you pain. The lotto is a myth for 99% and when it rains it pours. But given a choice, 99.9999 % still choose life. Because on any given day, even when it rains. One can still smile, and find one simple reason to say thank you. And tomorrow, or next week, or even next year-something gives and suddenly the woes give way. I am here by the simple virtue of finding just one thing good in each and everyday. Even if it's just my morning coffee I have almost died 4 times-each time I wanted and chose life. So now-I make that reality enough. And when my time does come. I know I did my best, and have faith that, that was enough.
Too Many Bad Habits
Too Much Perfection
Too Be Who And What You Are Is
Too Be Whats Right With The World
.............You learn in life who cares and who matters by those who say, I am your friend. But you never hear from them. They never write. It is a self serving concept in their own mind. A simple how have you been? Can go a long way....-Gary
Too All Things There Is A Purpose, In All Things Some Pain, But If I Had To Do It Over, I Would Grin, And Say Lets Have At It...Again smile emoticon
