What Is The Secret of Life?
The question isn't, "Is there life after death."
Rather, the question is: "Are you alive before death."
Some folks say that Jesus is the secret of life, others say that Buddha is, others say that Mohammed is. For just about every religious sect, they have as the basis of their religion a central figure which they claim is the secret of life.
And, as a side note, if these religions didn't believe that the main character behind the religion weren't the secret, then why would anyone even bother believing in them anyway?
Science has claimed the secret of life to be DNA.
In her song of the same title, Faith Hill sang:
The secret of life is a good cup of coffee

But if there really is a true secret of life, then shouldn't it stand to reason that this secret would be a constant. Something that remains the same despite religious viewpoints, despite centuries, and despite races of people.
A secret of life would be something that would be applicable to all folks, in all times and ages and something that would be of benefit to any and all, irregardless of their religion or creed or race or region of the world, or era of history.
A good case could be made for love being the secret of life. And if love was pure and unadulterated, then perhaps we would explore this deeper. However love can be spent in many less than virtuous avenues. There are those who have a deep, passionate love for things like drugs, pornography, money, the ways of the devil, and so on.
Is there a one single, true in all cases....secret of life?
If so, shouldn't this one thing be equal and beneficial to the same degree for all.
Don't we all believe that the secret of life should be some special knowledge that would set us all free, solve all our problems and make us happy, contented and loved by everyone?
Down through the ages, the advice of the sages and prophets has been, "know thyself".
I've got some good news for you.
The secret of life, that one elixir which has baffled sages and seekers since time began, that one thing which has been sought after for centuries on end, the one thing that will provide all the answers.....is:
You are the secret of life.
You, the entire you, the fabulous you, You, the single entity that is alive. You alone hold the key, you alone have the answer. You alone already have and hold the secret of life.
It is hidden in the I Am.
It is hidden in all that you are.
It is hidden in your identity.
It is called life.
The entire one single thing, the secret of life, is that you are life. You are alive. You have the answer within you to whatever it is you are seeking.
No one else does. Only you.
The great I am is you.
There was once an argument among the gods over where to hide the secret of life so that men and women would not find it. One god said: Bury it under a mountain; they will never look there. No, the others said, one day they will find ways to dig up mountains and will uncover it. Another said: Sink it in the depths of the ocean; it will be safe there. No the others objected, humans will one day find a way to plumb the ocean's depths and find it easily. Finally another god said: Put it inside them; men and women will never think of looking for it there for a long time, by the time they are intelligent enough to discover the secret, perhaps they will also be wise enough to use it properly.
If there ever was a secret of life, it's that you Are.
It's that you should believe in you as being all that is life.
You already knew this....search and look deep inside yourself, you will know this is truth.
Life is you. Life without you, wouldn't be life.
It's the exact same for every creature on this earth. It never changes, indeed, it cannot. It's the same for all races and for all ages.
The secret of life is never to be found external to oneself, if you're looking outside yourself, you're looking in all the wrong places.
It is always to be found as oneself.
And that's great news. You have your entire life ahead of you. The past is over, it's history, it cannot ever be replayed or re-done again. You have your future. You have the very now, the very present to live and to be you and to enjoy being the secret of life in.

A Servants Heart
Do you have a servant's heart? Has God blessed you with the insight to see the needs of others and reach out in compassion and understanding even when they, themselves, cannot reach out and ask for help?This month I had the rare opportunity to not only reach out and touch a few lives, but to be blessed in return. I say rare because in my own experience, it's either been one or the other-not both at the same time.
Starved Spirits, Sorrowful Souls
Give us today our daily bread. Matthew 6:11 (NIV) We can be intelligent, healthy, rich, and religious and it would be meaningless without bread.

Today is the day that I'm getting back into exercise. I sprained my ankle last week and although I've been swimming and rode the stationary bike, today was the day that I decided to go for a 1 hour walk.
A Beautiful Mind is a Simple Mind!!
In the movie "A Beautiful Mind" John Nash (played by Russell Crowe) is a schizophrenic math genius who struggles with is inability to have peace of mind. In one scene he bangs his head on the window until it bleeds, begging his mind to slow down, all the while having a conversation with his imaginary roommate, Charles.
A feeling of fulfillment is something we all seek. Here I would like to address this in a way that many of you already know at some level but which I feel is necessary to highlight.
Penthouse or Basement? The Spiritual Realm is Topsy-Turvy
Am I dreaming? The sign outside the skyscraper reads: "Spiritual Realm." I hurry straight to the elevator.
The possibility of almost 400 Old Testament prophesies coming to fulfillment in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, apart from God's sovereign control of history, staggers the imagination. The certainty that God planned the coming of His son into the world can offer stabilizing support to our faith in our Lord.
Sheltered in the Arms of God
"Mama, save me!"My six year old son jumped into my arms as a horrendous crash of thunder and a bolt lightening sent a fireball rolling across the ground toward where we were. He was terrified, and truth to tell, so was I.
Mankinds Ten Worst Enemies: #1 Pride
We have a proclivity to think of individuals and nations as our adversaries when they present a threat to our personal or national well being. But, I submit, that our greatest adversary is Satan and he makes his assaults from within not without.
Trailing Clouds of Glory
Most of us are familiar with the inner criticism and gnawing self-doubt we hear when we want to take the next step in our work or life. Rather than staying stymied we can observe our thoughts, let them go and return to the truth of who we really are.
Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
Did you ever see something go wrong around you and suddenly burst out, "How on Earth did I create that?"Really, how can bad things happen, even to the sweetest, kindest, most spiritual people on the planet? Where's the fairness in that?The root of the question lies partly in the fact that we live in a state of polarity consciousness. This is a point of view where life is seen as a contrast between opposing forces, and that events are either good or bad.

Life After Life - Death Is Merely a Changing Room
Since I awoke from my three month coma in August of 2004, I have been asked many times about what I remembered and experienced. After looking over my notes and speaking with my wife and some of the medical professionals involved, I decided that it might be a good idea to write a short overview of these experiences.
Law Vs. Grace
At first glance it does seem that law and grace are opposed. Even the Bible seems to be divided into two sections the Old Testament (law) and New Testament (grace).
The Reality of Fairies
No, I have never seen a fairy, an angel, nor any other type of a spirit guide. But I swear there are times I think that if I spun around fast enough they'd be sitting there snickering at me.
