Thoughts

 

A little bit about what I think…

I thought I would give you an opportunity to read about what some of my thoughts and beliefs are, some of my current issues that I think about, and some other stuff in general that I’ve written down…

My Philosophical Beliefs…

These are just some of my thoughts as to where I establish a foundation to build from. In a “heated” discussion, I could possibly be found playing the role of the devils advocate, just to see how strong/logical ones ideology is… 🙂

Religious Thoughts:
I was born and raised in a Catholic family, which is probably part of the reason why some of my views are slightly skewed… Anyway, I believe all “organized” religions basically believe in a higher being that provides some form of “hope” for mankind to live for… For without “hope” what else does one have except for our mere mortal existence… If you look, you will see “hope” in every form of advertising possible – we all want it…

Evolution makes sense – you can see it in everything around you… Extraterrestrials makes sense… I’d think that we’re pretty naive to assume that we’re the only intelligent species throughout the heavens…

Who created mankind??? Who created the Big Bang??? How many times as the universe expanded and collapsed in on itself, just to start over and do it all over again??? Why??? I don’t know, but I’d be interested to find out… 🙂

I venture to guess that Mars once sustained life, and in all likelihood that life migrated in some form to Earth when that planet became uninhabitable, and we’ll probably do the same thing to Venus at some point in the future when our sun continues to extinguish itself…

Communication:
I think the lack of communication has caused every major conflict/war throughout the course of human history, or else greed… Think about this, there have been countless world skirmishes and wars prior to the advent of the radio, telephone and television, and relatively none since… Information is a “very” powerful tool for eliminating ignorance and misunderstanding… With the common “growing” acceptance of the internet, I believe mankind is once again re-learning the lost art of written communication.
Politics:
Well, it can probably be argued that I could be a Republican and/or a Democratic… What’s the difference anyway??? Both parties are vying for the majority of the populace in the middle… On the other hand, I probably hold more Libertarian values than either of the two major parties do…
Sports:
Talk about today’s modernized “civil” warfare… Look at the “war-heroes” that are being produced, and it’s only a game… In addition, I believe they are grossly “over-paid” for merely entertaining us into passivity. Although I wouldn’t mind being paid a few hundred thousand per year to knock a little white ball around a green pasture…
Business:
Honesty, Integrity, and it never hurts to know how to play a mean game of lier’s dice when you are playing in the game of business… If you fail to plan, then you should plan to fail…

It’s not what you know, but who you know, how much money they have, and how much of the pie they want – or what you are willing to accept…

Love:
It is far better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all…

My Ever Changing Issues…

All of those trite one line sayings (i.e., you only get one chance to make a first impression) and family homeopathic recipes (i.e., eat your broccoli) are all based on some form of lost importance…

Do it now, or else it might never get done… Carpe Diem!!!

You can choose to be in a bad mood and make people miserable around you, or you can choose to be in a good mood and make people around you happy – it’s your choice!!!

Life, and those things in it, are basically very simple. However, there are people, because of their own insecurity, who try to make it very difficult and complex…

A thought is never wasted, unless it is not expressed…

The fastest growing industry in this country, and for that matter the world, is that of home-based businesses. I have found that as technology progresses, and becomes easier for us to become more empowered with the ability to accumulate, process, and produce useful information from our homes, then it becomes less necessary for us to physically travel some place to do so otherwise…

My Collection of Various Writing…

I dare not say it’s poetry, but I’ve got stuff dating back to the early ’80’s that I someday hope to have all published here online…

Thinking About You…

Each day as the sun comes into view
My dreams begin to fade as I start each day a new
Although every day is filled with new things to view
Each day is spent learning without you…

Your love is something I’m addicted too
And yet I know it’s not good for you
I spend my days finding things to do
Just so I don’t start thinking of you…

As I go to bed each night wanting to continue
Those dreams from the night before of you
I find it’s an endless cycle with nothing new
But then again it’s something you always knew…

I hope you know, I always need something to do
Just so I don’t begin to feel blue
‘Cause when I have nothing to do
All I can think about is you…

Ode to a Year

Another day goes by
Another year goes by
And yet we wake each day
To find that life is just a lie

Look at the poser on the dance floor
Look at your hooker walking out the door
And yet we sleep each night
Only to find that life is full of fright

As I shrink into the corner
of my four-walled cellar
As I come to discover
that I have nothing left to sell her

I quickly learn life’s plot irony
And that there’s nothing left but tyranny…

A Successful Project

A successful project requires a leader with vision
One capable of painting a concise picture for her staff
A profitable project requires a team of efficiency
One that is capable of recognizing adversity
One that has the capacity of adjusting over the course of time…

I believe we have that leader with a vision
One capable of painting a clear picture for her staff
I believe we have that team of efficiency
One that is capable of dealing with adversity
One that has the capacity of evolving over the course of time…

We all have the opportunity to be part of this vision
Each one of us adding their own unique color
We all have the training necessary for this project
Each one of us is capable of overcoming adversity
Each one of us has the capacity to change over the course of time…

Shall we embark on a journey to explore the vision
Each one of us providing their own unique color
Shall we do what is required for this project
Each one of us adapting to adversity
Each one of us growing over the course of time…

Let us now do what it takes…

A Lost Love

I sit and watch the rain fall upon your face
And as I watch you cry your tears leave no trace
Maybe tomorrow the sun will shine
Then again I wish that you’d be mine…

Some men hope to reach the stars
But I’d settle for only living on Mars
There comes a time to love and hate
While for some they can only sit and contemplate…

So I didn’t learn all that I could
Perhaps I still should have understood
That what you were willing to give
Was only a small portion of how one should live…

Sure one can try their best
And maybe they might just pass the test
For a lost love has only one pain
With that of nothing else left to gain…

With or Without You

Stop and take a moment…will you please???
See my thoughts with your hidden eyes
Feel my warmth as I stand before you
And give your heart just one more try…

Never wait for that old cliche
Trust me…just believe in me
‘Cause you’ll never hear it from me
You only need to believe yourself…

That I’m everything you ever wanted
I’m not quite perfect, nor are you
But if I could live forever
I’d spend eternity with you…

Peaceful days spent in solitude
Can be spent filling the heart with loneliness
Or emptying one’s soul of sorrow
But they’re just not the same without you…
