Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.

I just watched a video of a “ripped grandfather” doing a work-out routine and saying that age is a state of mind. I agree. In the video, the man states that when he was in his mid-40s he realized that he probably had more years ahead of him than behind him. We get old because…

The Game of Life

One night I was sitting in a small group and we were contemplating the universe and universal design. We decided to meditate. As I sat I became aware of a universe of energy.

What Are You Programmed to Believe?

Imagine a computer that could be the result of evolution. You know how a computer works. If you want new capabilities, you download another program or app. Apps can now recognize and respond to your voice. I have Alexa at home.
