The universe is exploding, racing out in all directions from a central point.  What, then, exists at the central point?  Nothingness?  Is it possible that the very heart of the material universe is a void?  Absolute emptiness? Maybe the same thing is true of life: perhaps men should be warned against seeking too much, against probing too deep, lest they fall into the emptiness.  Inside all truth is a vacuum, and you must stay clear of it or it will be drawn into you.

What I am trying to do is to discover why God included humans in the Universe.

[I’m still trying to figure this out too.  In the meantime, good will to all mankind!!  Merry Christmas, everyone!  —  KMAB]

Thinking

If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
 

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
 

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
 

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
 

—  written by: Walter D. Wintle
 

[I’ve added the poem above (another of those “positive thinking” / optimistic view poems I like so much) to my Poems page.
 

I guess we do become our philosophy…
 

Enjoy!  —  KMAB]

Hope Works

The man who hopes believes in a better future.
He is someone who works to make his future happen!
 —  an anonymous quote from my eighth grade graduation program
[I find it interesting how many times and in how many ways “hope for the future” was inculcated into my life from an early age.  —  KMAB]

Anxiety is inevitable in an age of crisis like ours.  Don’t make it worse by deceiving yourself and acting as if you were immune to all inner trepidation.  God does not ask you not to feel anxious, but to trust Him no matter how you feel.
 

—  Thomas Merton

…That all the labours of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noon-day brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man’s achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruin – all these things, if not quite beyond dispute, are yet so nearly certain, that no philosophy which rejects them can hope to stand.
 

—  Bertrand Russell
 

[I do not dispute the eventual destruction of the earth or of our solar system.  I dispute the inevitable destruction of mankind and man’s spirit.  Barring an “extinction level event” before we are able to colonize space and visit other stars, man will endure.  —  KMAB]

When you love a woman, you tell her that she’s really wanted.  You tell her that she’s the one, ’cause she needs somebody to tell her that it’s gonna last forever.

You got to give her some faith – hold her tight.  When you love a woman, fight for her.  And tell her that you would rather be alone than with anyone else!  Respect and trust will go a long way.  A little tenderness – gotta treat her right.   She will be there for you, taking good care of you.
