Prescriptions are meaningless. Do not ask how, rather ask yourself why. Do not lie and do not do what you hate for everything is disclosed in view of the truth. For there is nothing hidden that will not beecome revealed and there is nothing covered that will remain undisclosed. JESUS What you desire is not […]
Life is nothing more than endless fragments. Piece by piece it is fulfilled. But, fulfillment is not completion. If so we would die at the moment of achievement… the finality. Alas, the moment passes immediately. Now is eternity. There is no future. There is only the next thing. A life lived beyond the ordinary is […]

A Skyward Journey
Focus. Tune in. Tune out. Intention. Know the objective, disregard all else. Trust. You are always in the right place at the right time. Simplicity. It’s enough. Completion. Set the target.
