Truth is The Fundamental Existence of All Things

As we chart our course through life we must keep in mind that truth is the the fundamental existence of all things. We are truth.  

Our life becomes a living truth no matter how we act.  It has been described in phrases such as "I am that I am" or "I think therefore I am". The fact is that we are actual beings and we are acting out our desires.  

The elemental unchanging facts of existence rolled into everything that is seen or unseen, temporary or eternal, this is our opportunity to search and learn what we can.


In the process of learning truth we theorize, but theory is not truth. Just because we think does not make our thoughts harmonious with the supremacy of eternal truth. If we choose to become or remain an island in our own opinions, truth from outside sources will elude us.


If and when we recognize that even though as individuals we seem to each be a micro-cog, we are in an eternal round of truth. We are the reason for this creation, it is not a random act.

If we know why we are here we can submit to the laws and truths that magnify everything about our potential. The rational purpose for creation is to have a meaningful impact on those that are the recipients of the experience.  This is the purpose and love manifest by our Creator.


This includes our potential to become, to create, to love and finally to be. If we don't recognize that we are in a temporary state of becoming that is part of an eternal state of being then we can never fully accomplish our potential or purpose for being here.

James Madison, Essay on Property

Property
James Madison, National Gazette March 29, 1792

This term in its particular application means "that dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in exclusion of every other individual."
In its larger and juster meaning, it embraces every thing to which a man may attach a value and have a right; and which leaves to every one else the like advantage.  In the former sense, a man's land, or merchandise, or money is called his property.
In the latter sense, a man has property in his opinions and the free communication of them.
He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them. He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person.
He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them.

In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his ri…

What is the Reason that Things Happen?

Does Everything Really Happen For a Reason?
Experiences from my family and family history have made me think about the veracity of certain ubiquitous cliches used by many to convey their outlook on a circumstance.  Please don't think I am a skeptic because I am not or maybe I am of some things.

I am not a real philosopher, theologian or psychologist.  Many have weighed in on this subject.  I am just looking to find correct principles and understand them better, hopefully with an objective critical thought process.

We all go through difficulties in life. Those difficulties can be caused our own decisions or by others. Will we take responsibility for how we react by disempowering ourselves and defaulting to a notion that has no basis and delude ourselves by saying that all things happening for a reason?

The fact is we are all alive until we die and there is a purpose for that unless you are an atheist.  There is a difference between the purpose of life and the reasons that things happen…

Everest Challenge Cycling Event 2009

Everest Challenge Bike Race Event
About six months ago I took up road bicycling to be my exercise of choice. It has been a fun way to get in shape and compete a little bit with myself and eventually in the old man racing scene. I keep pushing and making some progress that is motivating on a daily basis. I get up at 4:30 AM to ride and currently average 150- 200 miles a week. I'm not sure where it’s heading at this point but I do like it. I like looking for ways to keep it interesting.
A couple of weeks ago I received an email from the Brumby’s (a local riding group) communication channel that another rider was looking for travel mates for a trip to California to do a bike race and a week of Mountain bike riding in the Sierras. In my wild imaginings I thought why not.
Everything would have been fine except that Betty had already planned a trip to Seattle for a quilting convention the following week end and expected me to be home. I had hoped to do a race or two before the Tour de Tuc…
