What’s Your Label?

During my own quest for self-awareness, I’ve often wondered how I would categorize myself were I into doing so, which I’m definitely not since I don’t believe in labeling people. But still, in the back of my mind is that tickling question that asks ‘But what if I were into labels, how would I categorizeContinue reading “What’s Your Label?”

Making Assumptions

Such a tough thing to do: To restrain from making assumptions—passing unsubstantiated judgments on people, places, things, situations, etc., when we have no actual data to support those beliefs. Maybe you are better at it than I am, but I have a hard time not “assuming” the outcome of a pending dispute or the likelihoodContinue reading “Making Assumptions”

Overcoming Dark Nights

It may well be that “During the darkest nights we see the greatest amount of stars,” but maybe you have to be watching for them to fully appreciate what you are viewing. Seriously though, we are not strangers to night time, just as we are not strangers to adversity or difficult times in our lives;Continue reading “Overcoming Dark Nights”

The Quest for Intelligent Beliefs

Just finished a novel exploring the philosophy of creating Artificial Intelligence (AI) robotic ‘beings,’ which as a serious consideration in today’s world is both fascinating and somewhat freaky.  What I enjoyed most about the book was the exposition of a specific religious perspective set against establishing proposed ‘rights’ for a new and artificially created ‘life-form,’Continue reading “The Quest for Intelligent Beliefs”

Choosing Your Path

Long, long ago when life was still just a juicy mystery to me—back when I believed certain things to be clearly true and others to be evidently false because of it—back when I thought I could learn or at least deduce all I ever needed to know about life through researching the answers to myContinue reading “Choosing Your Path”

Recognizing ‘Relativity’ in Your Life

When I mention relativity, I’m not thinking about all those family situations with oversized pot-luck dinners and raucous “discussions” on many subjects better left unmentioned during the gathering of the clan. Nor am I about to expound on Einstein’s physics theory, except peripherally, I suppose.  I’m actually referring to being able to acknowledge a senseContinue reading “Recognizing ‘Relativity’ in Your Life”

Discovering Authenticity

Hard to imagine that we don’t know how to be ‘authentic’ in our lives, but yet I’ve found that throughout my existence most folks I’ve met were still trying to awkwardly determine how much of themselves they felt comfortable in exposing to others—likely myself included.   Being truly AUTHENTIC in our lives is either anContinue reading “Discovering Authenticity”

Searching for LIFE’s Meaning

I mentioned earlier that I’d address ‘spirituality’ later. Well this must be the time, because the search for meaning in our lives is likely the biggest reason that you are trying to find your own truth. As members of this expansive human species, we need to feel that we have a purpose or a reasonContinue reading “Searching for LIFE’s Meaning”
