This is the third blog that I have attempted to start today. Twice already I’ve wrote a few paragraphs, but then quit because I couldn’t get going.

Don’t worry, if you are not a writer, this will still apply to your life. The example I’m going to be using is blogging, but really it could apply to just about any life situation.

I’m More Spiritual than You

I’m More Spiritual than You

This is a problem that a lot of people encounter when they first start waking up to spirituality. They think that they are more spiritual than others, and they also tend to think they know what is right for them.

I am speaking from personal experience. I used to be terrible about this, and wanted to change everyone’s lives. It took quite a bit of frustration and failure before I started looking at this from a different perspective.

Free College?

Free College?

graduation1

Perhaps some of you have heard in the media recently that Obama wants to provide two years of free community college to just about everyone.

He wants to do what??? People need to work to learn a work-ethic. These free-loaders are the problem with this country. I paid for my school, so they should have to pay for theirs.

In fact, what’s with grade schoolers and high schoolers getting free school? Some of them even get a free food during the day! Don’t they know there is no such thing as a “free lunch”?

We should go back to the good-old-days. I don’t want my tax dollars going to support some 7-year-old so he or she can get free food and an education!

Put them back in the coalmines, just like how our ancestors had to work. That will teach them some real-world skills that they won’t soon forget!

How long did it take you to realize I was being sarcastic? I’ll bet it was that last paragraph that did it ;)

Keep Christ in Christmas?

Keep Christ in Christmas?

Today is the Winter solstice, the shortest day of the year for the Northern Hemisphere. For thousands of years it has been a significant date for almost every civilization.

Sometimes the Winter solstice falls on December 22nd, however, but this year it was December 21st. Why is this significant, and why did I title this blog, “Keep Christ in Christmas?” Perhaps a better title would have been, “Put the Pagan Back in Christmas.”

I’ll Ride With You

I’ll Ride With You

Ill-ride-with-you

Yesterday I was so inspired to see Australia come together after a tragedy. Today I am devastated to wake up and hear the news about Pakistan.

The hashtag #illridewithyou was all over Twitter yesterday, after the hostage situation in Australia ended. It was meant to show that even though it was Muslim extremists perpetrating in the attack, that people were still willing to ride with Muslim’s dressed in traditional garb on public transportation.

Something about this inspired me, and made me think of Rosa Parks refusing to sit at the back of a bus during the civil rights movement in America.

I was so proud of Australia, and the rest of the world that took up support for a group of people that is generally discriminated against. Then I found out about this attack today, and my faith in humanity diminished…

Oneness: Part 2

Oneness: Part 2

“Behold but One in all things; it is the second that leads you astray.”

-Kabir

You have been warned—part two of this blog may lead you astray. If you haven’t read part one yet, I will try to not make that a prerequisite, but it wouldn’t hurt to go read that one now.

Oneness: Part 1

As I discussed there, Oneness is the ultimate Truth. It only appears as if there is a multitude of forms. We are all One, and if you want to call that the Tao, God, Source, the name makes no difference.
