Disingenuous false friends, we adamantly admire because they always agree with us. They make us feel good. And we always know where to find them, they will always be on our same level or below. True friends, great friends, will not hesitate to tell you the truth. They will not tell you what you want to hear..no, no.. Instead they have the courage to tell you what you need to hear, the things that hurt deep but help promote change. Those friends are few and far in-between. “True friends can be counted on one hand” my Father used to say as he raised his hand and counted his- using only one hand.

My aim is to help others make sense of their own lives, by sharing the failures and misfortunes of mine. Misfortune and failure lead a man to the unmistakable clarity of his deception- That there is no need, nor room for God, because he himself is self sufficient, well educated, rich and capable. The more the man stays his ground, holding fast to his position- the more suffering he shall bring into his life. Suffering is the ground upon which elimination of the false occurs and perception of the Truth begins. After enough time is spent courting Misery, Pain, Humiliation, Slavery, Emptiness, one seeks to stop the bleeding. Some men prefer to bleed their way to death rather than admit their ignorance; that their way will never work. While other men, surrender, which is the beginning of knowledge. By surrendering the man does not fall, he rises and steps foot upon the path of Eternal Wisdom and Truth. It is the path that leads to Eternal Life- the pursuit of knowledge, is the pursuit of Almighty God- Man's Creator. *If you have questions, concerns, need direction, prayer, you may email me.* I do not charge for what Almighty God has given me freely.
