Finding Your Inner Strength

These last couple years have been challenging ones. My illnesses and hospitalizations took their toll. My recovery was even more so, demanding so much more from me than I thought I had to give.

Yet somehow I found a way, even when I didn't have the strength to go on.

My therapist called it inner strength. Many times he talked to me about it, serving as witness in those moments where I somehow marshaled the will and determination to continue on when I had long since exhausted my limited strength and energy reserves.

Where Is the Truth?

truthThe law is said to be a search for truth. After more than three decades looking for it, I still haven't found it.

Anyone who's ever watched a good lawyer at work knows facts are not absolute. They can be twisted and turned just about any way we want to suit our needs.

But when facts are filtered, distorted and stretched to bolster one's position, it raises the question we all should be asking in every situation:

Empower Yourself to Choose Peace

Everywhere we turn life demands we make choices. The problem is, no one ever teaches us how to make them, much less expands the pool of possibilities we can choose from.

Though we ostensibly live in a world where we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, apparently few take it seriously.

Because going our own way isn't easy. Everyone around us is always trying to influence us, telling us what to do, how to do it, what to think, where to go, and just about anything else that pops into their minds.

Then again, we're probably doing the same to them.

No wonder individual choice, and the responsibility that goes with it, is a pipedream. Ours is a world based on conflict and control. And the name of the game is to assert our wills to get and do what we want.

Are You Thinking of Jumping into the Battle, Too?

In case you haven't noticed, there's a battle brewing, and the pot is beginning to boil.

People are feeling enough is enough on a whole range of issues involving government, social responsibility, and the influence of money and power over the conduct and course of our common affairs.
