Question How Is Any Man To Be Judged


Most men pass throughout this life, unknown to the ages, and even to their fellows themselves, and more is the shame! For even though many of us have much to contribute, few actually dedicate the labor (or the effort) that it takes to even attempt to make the slightest bit of difference! “What a woeful loss of talent, potential and promise!”

And although no man or woman is ever guaranteed success in life (or even beyond), when any promising talent is merely pissed-away without it even being given the slightest chance of success, who then is the biggest loser here – that individual, or the world of humanity itself?

And finally, how is any such man (or woman) to be judged – by what he (or she) is or should have been? Or is their net-worth determined by their own actual deeds or at least their truthful attempts?

One thing is for certain here, however - any talent that goes unexplored, or any potential that goes unchallenged or the abandonment of an individual’s God-Given Skills and aspirations, is still a blow against humanity, a slight against human nature and a nearly fatal slap against our own immortal souls. “It is also a foolish strike against the unbreakable grip of “The Almighty Himself!”

Unhappy The circles of life / a closed loop mentality

Yea Rick - it looks that way many times.
Many get side-tracked in life - the road of life has many turns in it.
The Big Wheels today get caught up in in these circle's of life
- whereas and thereby - are unable to get off - and now live in a
constant closed loop mentality - until they run out of gas.
We all get caught up in this circle periodically and wonder if we
will ever get out of it. We may pull over every now and then
but the loop continues on and on.
Some call these closed loop circles a mental block or the chasing
of one's tail - it happens - until once again he or she runs out of gas.
It also seems many folks - like to live in the fast lane - but here
too - they will eventually run out of gas as well.
It's an old idiom: Bless'ed are they who run around in big circles -
for they shall be known as big wheels. It was once fashionable -
but today it's merely anxiety driven - so as to get onto the fast
pace of life - and not to be left behind or chasing one's tail as well.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
