    .... you seem to understand everything, in a very simple view window, of the in depth look upon your own soul?

    What, if you do see this, stands out to you as important?

    Are you still upon a spiritual quest or a materialistic quest, a quest of this and a quest of that? What is your quest in life? What ultimately would you really wish to achieve?

    Aye, hmmmmm

    Hey ya balmpot. You know I was watching that movie Blow w/Johnny Depp in it today. The prison scene where his cell mate is talking to him about smuggling cocaine...he asks JD " why did you get caught..." Johnny says "becuase I did it the wrong way"....and the celly says "No, you got caught becuase you had the wrong dream". That to me is what you are describing, when you or someone else leads you to a moment of clarity. I don't think I'm on a quest...more like a long road many things to see and so little time. Those moments are like snapshots and make your experience easier to remember and keep enjoying the ride. One can only hope they don't occur talking to a cellmate...*LOL* Cheers matey!

    i whole heartedly agree with my brother on that one, ive experienced both sides of that conversation and i have completley changed my whole purpose in life, but dont have any regrets. I must vouch for Valis, he is right 96.9% of the time.

    Hey Austin...I wasn't talking about the particular topic of that movie, but merely that sometimes your crystal clear moment alters your life in all kinds of ways. Just like reading a brochure from a place you never heard of. Altering your journey can be a good thing and I think you're a good example of that. Oh and I'm proud of you BTW, in case I hadn't said so lately. About that 96.9 thing...I wish! *LOL* Good to see you yesterday hoss.

    Epiphany : a usually sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something (2) : an intuitive grasp of reality through something (as an event) usually simple and striking (3) : an illuminating discovery b : a revealing scene or moment

    Sounds like you are describing an epiphany.

    I have them a lot more now that I am untangling the gnarly fingers of the WTBTS from my tired brain.

    My quest is to feel better and to make the most of my quickly passing life. I'm 45 now and it's going so damn fast. I want to get back to school and get a skill that will help me use some talent I must have somewhere. I don't want to work in retail the rest of my days.

    I want to travel some. I know that. Want to continue on my good journey with my beloved companion, Andy. I want to understand life better. I don't aspire to find absolute truth in anything. I only hope my designer will fill me in when I leave this life. To me absolute truth is the love I have for my children, grandchildren, Andy, family and friends. Absolute truth is the wonder and magic of babies and children and complex and amazing teenagers and adults. Truth is the beauty in nature. Truth is pain we all experience. Truth is: I believe because of the complexity of our world, us and the deep love we all feel, I do believe this isn't all there is. I really hope it's not all there is.

    I guess the quest is to get the most out of this life. Help more than hurt. Enjoy the love and the beauty while I'm here. To give love and to be loved. To gather wisdom. All cliche' I know but then life seems to be a cliche' anymore.

    Bout the only time I can remembering reasoning this way was when I had just finished smokin some good 'Sativa'. That stuff will even make an Einstein out of Minimus .
