Depression & Anxiety

Uncategorized
Anxiety & Depression! Our world today is plagued with these two things & it is getting worse, not better. We have come so far medically, why can't we fix this? Maybe it is because we are treating the symptoms rather than the cause. Example: What causes depression? A chemical imbalance... right? Wrong! Depression is not caused by a chemical imbalance... it causes a chemical imbalance. Depression is the result of wrong thinking, coupled with an emotional upset, which ultimately causes the chemical imbalance. We have a thought, attach an emotion & the glands react. My emotions control my glands! How do I know this? The tear duct is a gland... how does it work? Do the tears running down my face make me sad? Or does my sadness cause the…

Money Or Mind

Uncategorized
"If anyone should come to you with a billion dollars in one hand and Peace of Mind in the other, if you took the billion dollars, you would be the most foolish person on earth." ~Emmet Fox. This statement is so profoundly true! I deal with human suffering on a daily basis & the one statement that I hear more than ANY other is "I wish I could just turn my brain off". Without Peace of Mind I have a hard time doing anything, I get mentally exhausted, I don't function efficiently, I don't sleep well at night, I can't remember things & all of this brings about an emotional imbalance which leaves me more prone to things like anxiety & depression. I lose my Peace of Mind through a…

A Powerful Lesson

Uncategorized
I was always 'sorry'... I kept doing wrong & saying I was sorry & then repeating that same act proving that I wasn't really sorry. Then one day someone said something to me that changed everything. They said "I'm sorry means - I won't do it again". The goal for today, don't say I'm sorry unless I mean it & am willing to prove it through my actions. Have a great day everybody!

The Difference Between God & Church

Uncategorized
I talk about God more so than religion... there is a difference. Example: Our Founding Fathers built this great nation on the bedrock foundation of "In God We Trust" & then built a wall of separation between church & state. Did they change their minds? Is this a contradiction? Or did they fully understand the difference between God & Church? I've come to realize that God is a fact & religion an opinion & what that means is that our Founding Fathers were saying, that the church should NOT be running the state... God should be! & the state should NOT be running the church... God should be! I hope this makes sense because when we talk about religion, it divides us & divided we fall, furthermore when we stop…

Image & Likeness Of God

Uncategorized
I have heard some pretty wild statements & been asked some pretty interesting questions in regards to the statement that we were created in the image & likeness of God. I actually had one person say to me "God must be very sad & lonely & hurt because that's how we feel". Then just recently while discussing whether or not people are born with alcoholism this Bible quote came up & one man asked, in a very sarcastic tone, "is God mentally retarded? because sometimes people are born that way". These are both absurd questions but in a round about way, they are very legitimate questions. The first thing apparent is that our understanding of God sucks! Before we get into the explanation, I suggest you stop reading & ask…

Understanding Solves Problems

Uncategorized
"No defect can be correct until we clearly see what it is." ~Anon. There are four things that cause all of my problems... I'm selfish, resentful, dishonest & afraid. Now lets see how these defects of character function. Example: If I am driving down the street & someone pulls out in front of me, what do I do? I usually lay on the horn, yell & curse, flip them off, I might even swerve at them if I'm really out of my mind. Now, if I can figure out the Truth about why I react this way, maybe I can correct it. If I don't figure out why I react this way then there is no hope of fixing it. The four character defects, listed above, work in a very…

Unbreakable Law

Uncategorized
There is a very clear cut 'right' & 'wrong' that applies to every human being on the planet & there is no escaping the natural consequences of it. Example: If I drink poison, it will kill me. But what if I thought it was lemonade? It will still kill me but I will believe that consequence to be unjust; it was an accident & therefore, I should not suffer the natural consequences of my own actions. I might even take it as far as blaming you for my actions - "why didn't you tell me it was poison? This is all your fault". That's what makes this so confusing... there is a natural law that applies to us all, but until I believe that & understand it, to a certain…

Freedom To… Freedom From

Uncategorized
"What is the essence of America? Finding and maintaining that perfect, delicate balance between freedom 'to' and freedom 'from'." ~Marilyn vos Savant. I had to read that a few times before I got it - lol. What an incredible statement! I need to learn how to be Free properly. We all have Freedom of speech, press, assembly & religion, until we abuse those Freedoms to the point where they take away the Rights & Freedoms of others. Example: A group of people running around to soldiers funerals, being disruptive & holding up signs that say thank god for dead soldiers, are supposedly protected by Freedom of speech. Is that what the Constitution really says? Or is it, in reality, unconstitutional for their speech to take away the Freedom of religion…
