Wresting the light from the cave of darkness, and the truth, from the bowels of ignorance. Every moment is filled with endless possiblities.( The Medicine Man 05/20/13)

Hello!

when you read my hubs, I want you to know that, I'm not writing to upset anyone, insult anyone, to make anyone mad or to change your mind about what you believe. I'm only pointing out how I see whatever I'm writing about. So please keep that in mind if you read something I wrote that you disagree with. Disagreement is allowed.

Now that, that's out of the way

I'm a hub writer, songwriter, bassist, guitarist, poet, intuitive deep thinker. I'm a truther rather than a believer and a gifted comprehensionist.

Some of you are probably saying, what the hell is a truther? Well let me explain.

A truther is someone who bases their viewpoints, knowledge and beliefs on facts as opposed to basing them on beliefs.

Example: I believe all things are possible. This may remind you of certain religious beliefs. But here's the difference.

We now live with things that were once considered to be impossible.

Just a few hundred years ago the steam engine, the horseless carriage, wireless telegraphy, airplanes, television, radio, cellphones, computers, a person running a mile under 4 minutes, driving faster than 35 mph would jumble up your insides, space flight, moon walks, etc, etc, add infinitum.

Were all thought to be impossible.

So I can see that what was once thought to be impossible is just a matter of perception, knowledge and know how.

I believe that all things are possible as knowledge, perception, and know how continue to advance. It's just a matter of time.

This is all based on facts.

That's the difference that makes a difference.

I have an Associates of Science in Mental Health Social work, a Bachelor Of Science in Counseling Psychology and 5 years of experience as a Counselor and Substance Abuse Counselor.

I love writing, thinking, and discussing topics that are outside the box in an outside the box way. I really enjoy healthy, friendly, informative debate and discussion.

Unlike others who may try to motivate you to do something specific when they write. I'm Just imparting my point of view of subjects or issues that I think many people aren't aware of and should be aware of.

The only thing I want you to do is to read, comprehend and update your views about the subjects or issues I write about, if you find what I write relevant. That's it!

I was a severely emotionally damaged kid and teenager.

When I was 18, I was suicidal.

But after many years of soul-searching, taking of wrong self-destructive paths, spiritual insights, truths and inspirations.

I've come out on the other side much less emotionally damaged and healthier I think.

Those who get outside the box may seem crazy to those who are still in the box!

We're all swimming in the same sea of life

Focus On What You Want, Not On What You Don't Want

Be A Light Into Someone's Darkness

And a wise guide unto your own feet

Sometimes we perfect our art more than we do ourselves

When it's all said and done, you're only as good as the good you've done in life.

No matter how much you've attained or how much you've accomplished....If you aren't of benefit to yourself and others what good are you?

Those who don't look into their dark side, don't know they have a dark side.

When some people see things in the Bible that are confusing or contradictory. They just shrug and say "Oh well" and go on their merry way.

I'm not one of those people.

I'm sometimes controversial sometimes not

Glad To Meet Cha!

Sometimes the obvious is the hardest thing to see
