"Got hurt cant work got a lot of bills
But the policy dont pay unless I get killed
"Just my luck counting on too much stuff
"Well its a way too much you never gonna get enough
"You can pile it high, but you ll never be satisified
These lyrics from a Delbert mcClinton song always reminds me just how much we a s humans think we need to have so much "stuff" to be happy. We tend to think that after we attain all the material possessions we desire then we can stop and rreally be happy. But ya know what? Like the song says you'll never be satisified. And I think that is true if we put all of our desires on material things.Lots of times less is more. George Santayana has stated the following:"I like to walk about among the beautiful things that adorn the world; but private wealth I should decline, or any sort of personal possessions, because they would take away my liberty." I like that quote.Dont get me wrong there is nothing wrong with wanting "things" or "stuff" and it does make life easier if you manage to have some money and other stuff. But the thing old George was saying I do believe, is that when we focus too much on "stuff" we oft times miss the real assets that life has to offer. Like new friendships, making peace with others, doing nice things just for the heck of it to help others, being a real friend, sharing what we do have with others, taking a quiet walk thru the woods or on the beach, watching a sunset and on and on.My hope for all of us is that we can learn to clear a lot of the "clutter" from our lives and then begin to share our true wealth with each other.I wish you and yours the very best of everything. Please try to remember to do something nice for someone today just because you can and want to!Bless you all!

It's kinda funny how we humans demand on putting labels on everything we know.We label one thing as good, another one as bad, another one somewhere in between and so forth.And when it comes to trying to figure out exactly what makes everything exist, well, that's an impossibility I believe.As I've said before, we are humans working with a finite mind and there is no way we can truly comprehend infinity.Infinity--that thing or power which is ageless endlesss and forever expanding. Wow! That power is awesome no matter how one tries to describe it.One of my favorite writers of all time Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated:"Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff." I must wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Emerson. And that being said then that would make us humans part of that One Eternal Infinite Power! Awesome!Let us all remember that we have within us that Power to do Anything we desire. My hope is that each of you have discovered this Power and have learned to use it not only for your own benefit but for others also. Remember just how powerful you are friends. And please dont forget to do something nice for someone today just because you have the power to do it and also because you want to be a part of life's solutions instead of it's problems! Bless you all now and always.
