I have created this blog to attempt to help those with chronic pain and depression. Sisyphus was a mythological figure sentenced to roll a stone uphill for eternity. In this way, I intend to approach chronic pain and depression as constant foes that must be your constant focus. Photo courtesy http://akrockefeller.com/blog/tibetan-autonomy-a-futile-odyssey/

The Path

There has been a lot in our world lately to cause one to pause and contemplate why it is all happening.  Some believe it is the end of the world.  Some believe it is social inequality, and others believe it is social justice.  As for me, I am just someone who is stepping back and trying to perceive what the cause of all of this is, as I feel all of the aforementioned reasons are symptoms of an illness.

What I have deduced is that it is a lack of inner peace.  It is really that simple.  Muslims calling for the death of Christians.  Christians berating those who they perceive as 'unsaved'.  Anger and blood in the streets.  Sarcasm and indifference from our politicians.

If you close your eyes, you are not closing them to the events going on in the world.  You may close them to examine your soul.  Your purpose.  

So many seek God in so many ways.  Some in the pews of a church.  Others in a mosque.  Others, with a needle, a prostitute, a can of alcohol.  A phone, a pokemon.  

Where God resides is within us.  He has always been there, yet we are untrained, unwilling, to close our eyes and see him.  To silence our mind and allow him to speak to us.  

We talk, but do not listen.  We hear, but do not listen.  We look, but don't see.  

God resides within us, within our own inner peace.  Should the world discover this, then all of the anger and hate would dissolve into love.
