Who am I? Why am I here?

Imagine a homeless dog, wandering the streets; everywhere he turns, just looking for someone to take some time, pet him, give him something to eat or drink, maybe take him home and give him a bath and a nice warm bed to sleep in?

 

Only throughout his travels, he's yelled at constantly, people kick at him, throw rocks or sticks at him; and because of the lifestyle that dog is stuck in, he must endure this day in and day out.

 

Eventually, that dog is going to have enough of it, and lash out, and bite someone, and maybe even hurt them severely.

 

Before you judge me for the few blurbs of mine you may read on any given day, think of an old Indian adage "Before you judge a man, you must walk a mile in his moccasins"

 

Most of you have lives; you work, play with your kids, balance your checkbooks, run errands, etc.....

 

I have no vehicle, and because of multiple circumstances beyond my control, I can not seek employment outside of my home. For every hour that the average one of you spends on Social Networks/Chat Rooms, etc... I probably spend 6-8. For every hour the average person spends reading, writing, speaking on scripture, world history, or even politics, I spend another 6-8.

 

This is where I am, who I am, and what I do. How would any of you like it if I walked into your homes or places of business and told you how to act, what to say, what to think, etc...

 

I often wonder just why the hell I even care to go to the lengths that I do, trying to make people and this world a better place for everyone. After hours and hours each and every single day, hearing what a low life, worthless piece of crap I am, I become that homeless dog, and I'm ready to snap and rip somebody's head off at any given moment.

 

I understand many of you only want the best for me and that you do try to make me a better person; for that, I am and always will be grateful. As for those of you who only know me through any of the social networks/chat rooms- group I'm in, and only wish to second guess my intentions, integrity, or purpose in what I'm doing, why, or how? Come to my house, and spend just 24 hours, observing, watching, and experiencing my life, and what a typical day is like for me.

 

For any who have known me for longer than I've been on Facebook? Please remind some of these people what I was like just 3-4 years ago, compared to what I am like now.

 

I'm not where I want to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be.

 

I may come off as disagreeable; or worse, at times, but if you really knew me, you'd know just how much I do care and only want the best for each and every single person on this planet.

 

Futurist Eschatology is one of the single most dangerous weapons on this planet; the majority of Christians, Jews, and even Muslims, believe, and treat humanity and this planet like it's disposable, and destined to the trash heap of time.

 

How many people do you know right now that are absolutely convinced that this world and humanity are in the worst shape they've ever been, and that things can only get worse; and mainly because of their misinterpretations of these END TIMES Christianity has been blustering about for nearly 2,000 years?

 

How many people do you know who aren't finishing school, or going back to school, how many aren't looking to improve their lives, how many do you know who won't or can't get into a serious relationship, how many do you know that aren't having kids, how many do you know that aren't building, planning, saving, or investing for the future?

 

What's the point, right? Messiah is going to come/return at any moment, snatch out the frozen chosen, and fry the rest of humanity, right?

 

It is these defeatists, these escapists, that just want it over with, they just want it all to end. This vicious cycle exists because generation after generation teaches the succeeding generations, that this is life, this is destiny, and this is how God has it all planned out to end.

 

Doom & Gloom we call it, and most of you perpetuate it because of some bad teachings you've learned, and are subsequently teaching others, and on and on the cycle goes.

 

I happen to have more faith in God, and in mankind than most of the people in these 3 religions put together. I believe we can turn things around at any given moment. I happen to believe in you, and I have no doubt that with just the faith of a mustard seed, we can turn things around. It won't happen overnight, but with 1 heart, 1 mind, 1 soul, 1 spirit, and 1 person at a time.

 

I am not your enemy, nor are you mine.

 

Peace and God bless.

 

I am 100% certain on numerous things in my life, and within that collective, many are immovable and will never change. These are called absolutes: the sun is hot, ice is cold, sticking a metal butter knife in a live electrical outlet will result in serious problems and complications, etc...

 

I have reached a point where I now separate everything between that which is temporal and finite, and that which is everlasting and infinite.

 

I can only speak from that which I know, those things I'm ignorant on or of? I try to limit my conversations on such (Better to be thought a fool then open your mouth and prove it)

 

I am as sure as I can be on any given topic or subject, based on the information/data that I have at that time. I often remind people; things are subject to change based on the investigation of any additional information I may gain in my education.

 

This can cause slight belief shifts, or it can bring about total paradigm shifts. I've been through many of each, and do actually anticipate and look forward to going through even more.

 

I'm on a journey, and that journey has no final destination in mind. All we ever have in life are the experiences, and I relish them all.

 

I've been wrong, I am wrong, and I'll be wrong again. Being right or wrong doesn't define me, it's what I do with and from that information that defines me.

 

I am not the bits, parts, pieces, and fragments; I am the sum of all, so I must accept all, whether I like it or not.

 

I am reaching daily for that higher self that I already and absolutely know is already present within me. I am no longer trying to become more than what I am, but I am trying to become all that I am.

 

This involves all human constructs, and those which exist beyond human limitation.

 

Philosophy comes from a word which literally means "a love of wisdom" and I do consider myself a Philosopher. Remember, there is no destination, only the journey itself.


Who am I?

People know what to expect from me; while there will always be the crybabies who want you to sugar coat your words, and yield to political, social, and religious correctness, for every whiner I get, I have 10 others who appreciate my openness, genuineness, and consistency. Several people on my friends list know me in person as well. Honor and integrity are everything to me; I want every person who meets me online to know that if we ever meet in person, they're going to meet the same person.

I'm not pretentious, and I never want to be seen as a fake. I'm far from perfect and I'm going to make mistakes, but I'm ok with that. I never look for, expect, or demand perfection from others. Not being raised in religion has allowed me to be who I am, and as flawed as that may be? That's who I am, what I am, and where I'm at. I'm not as bad as I used to be, and I'm not as good as I can be. I'm a jerk when I feel I need to be, and I can be a perfect gentleman when I feel it's the right time or situation to be such.   

If anyone reading this expects me to ever bend to worldly compromises, I'm going to tell you right now, it's never going to happen. I'm as real as real gets, but if you feel you need someone to be as fake as you are, the world is full of them.

No matter who you are, be who you are, not what others want you to be.
