Sometimes we feel that life’s a battle, and we’re alone.  We feel that when no one is willing to hear us out, or when no one is willing to fight the fight with us.  We feel that we are alone when there’s no out to reach out.  When staring outside the window, we see only darkness and silence.
So why is it that we need someone else?  Why is it that we have to feel as if there’s something missing, something that’s been taken away from us, something that only another person can give us?
Something that can’t be bought.
Something that can’t be stolen.
Something that can’t be defined or understood or seen.
Something we all need, we all want.
And when you find that something, that’s when you’re complete.  Perfect.  Happy.
That’s when all your dreams become possible, no matter how crazy they really are, when your biggest fears die.
You’re not afraid anymore.
You’re not alone anymore.
Love is simply this: we give the best of our hearts to someone who’s willing to fight the fight with us.  Nothing else really matters.  Distance, age, sex, whatever.

When people treat corruption as a routine part of the process, you have something far worse than wrongdoing or moral failing.  You have a political cancer that breeds cynicism about democratic government and infects all of society.

Our spirit has an instinct for silence.
  Every soul innately yearns for stillness,
  for a space, a garden where we can till, sow, reap, and rest,
  and by doing so come to a deeper sense of self and our place in the universe.
  Silence is not an absence but a presence.
  Not an emptiness but repletion.
  A filling up.

“Indispensable Man”

Sometime when you’re feeling important;
Sometime when your ego’s in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified in the room,
Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;
Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is a measure of how you’ll be missed.
You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you’ll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.
The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There’s no indispensable man.
The above poem was written by: Saxon White Kessinger
The poem text was found as an image at: The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally

I’ve read the words of men who walk where understanding grows: who’ve passed beneath the tree of wisdom and had its shadow grant them peace, briefly though it be.
Look in their eyes and you will discover glimpses of eternity.  With them you sense the present is infinite, and events the actors which provide a change of scenery.  In life there are many theories but few explanations.  With time I discovered that we will know more than we can say, and understand beyond our powers of expression.
