Living a Life of Wonder

Submitted by Stephen Winters
Is This Life Horrible or Wonderful?
In this life, what you look for is what you will find.
If you are looking for what is miserable and awful,
    that is what you will find, a world that is miserable and awful,
      filled with every dreaded thing
 
If you look for what is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
    that is what you will find, a world that is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
      filled with all the delights and wonders of this.

A Spotless Life, A Beginning.

Submitted by Stephen Winters

As I look around me, my house is a mess, my workshop is a mess, the yard is a mess. In the past I have cleaned up this or that, only to have it become a mess again in a very short time. Each time I did the cleaning, I didn't change anything about be, or how I have related to the environment and my surroundings. I've heard it said that the first thing to change is to admit that there is a problem. More than that is to admit my part of the problem. For much of my life I've been a messer-upper. I have not contributed to improving myself or my surroundings in a consistant ongoing manner.

Living A Spotless Life

Submitted by Stephen Winters
This morning I was in the kitchen looking at our black gas range. It is a constant struggle to keep it clean. As I cook I am constantly dropping or drisling small specks of food on the rangetop. Even in my cleaning it is hard for me to get all the specks off of it. It seems that I'm constantly dropping tiny specks on it and it seems almost impossible to keep clean. I've wished for a multi-colored surface that wouldn't show the dirt and specks.

Having Faith Versus Seeking Truth

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Accepting the "Faith" of a religion is in many ways much simpler and easier that questioning the status quo to find out what is true.

Many religions have the "Statement of Faith" all written out. All you have to do is just agree to that statement and it is all done, neat and clean. Now, just every time your mind doubts and questions anything, just repeat, "Doubt your doubts, believe your beliefs". You never have to go beyond that.
