So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

The Clothes We Wear

We dress ourselves in the words we speak, in the things we do. But one suit we wear has a life of its own. It is sewn together not of fabric, but of words and images and sounds. Nobody else can see them, no one else knows for sure what they are up to; but you hear them day and night, chattering, buzzing, playing their games in the courtyard of your mind. Leave your thoughts to play on their own and they will take you for a ride to places you never wanted to see. Grab the reins, master them, direct them, flex your mind and they will follow. Provide them a script and they will play along. But do something, because, after all, you are dressed up within them.

These "clothes" usually have holes in them.

Meditation or prayer is the equivalent of putting them in the washing machine.

Hi Rob,
I think these "clothes" have holes in them when we allow idle chatter to come forth on a regular basis.

You are absolutely correct that meditation plays a big part in "cleaning up" the things that come out of our mouthes.

Thank you for your insight, my friend.
