Everything is alright until we collide with the truth that it really ain’t. I can take no comfort in he who travels like lightning towards danger just because I travel towards it at a slower speed. Our fate is equally sealed unless of course one of us decides to tell the truth that needs to be told, that we may workout the salvation we need for our souls. Many things have been set in motion so long ago, that no one thing or person can be blamed for the tragedies we know. I survived the collisions in my life for where I went wrong because of what I did right, and so giving up on ourselves will not be an option that will ever be right. What I’ve learned is you have to tell yourself the truth, because unless you’re walking in it, your future will not be cute.

Making a deal with a person who has no honor is like pouring water into a pail without a bottom. And a pail without a bottom is a pipe through which the things you shared in confidence flows through into the hungry filthy mouths of gossip mongers. But thats not to say you shouldn’t ever bare your soul, because that’s like the breath of fresh air we need to breathe to heal and become whole. When you are ready to exhale your truth, and bare your soul at its root. Make sure the helping hand you have holding the pail, is also ready to exhale.
Is it only in death that man can bring focus to his life? Surely, there must be a way for us to know what really matters; to know what we have while we still have time to experience it, before because of these distractions we allow it all to slip away.
If it takes death for us to know, that all that ever really mattered was love, then may we have time to come to that conclusion; may we have time to know we wasted time living out of focus on an illusion, perhaps this final hour would have life give us this, to know that although we were here, we left without it’s gift.
Often it takes a foreigner to remind us of how fortunate we are to have the comforts we enjoy at home. So when the aliens arrive, be sure to thank them!
