Thoughts from a previous work associate that passed on a few years ago. I just came across them again and thought I’d share.
1. Truth is an absolute which exists independent of perception.
2. There is an ultimate repository of truth from which knowledge may come
3. Our consciousness is a combination of information from both mind and soul.
4. We are at the center of our universe.
5. We always operate on perception.
6. We always choose the alternative perceived to be most beneficial to us.
7. Once we arrive at a desired perception we tend to stop seeking the truth.
Be bold, be brilliant, be brief

Hmmm…can’t decide if I should stick with it or not.

Neal A. Maxwell, “A More Determined Discipleship,” Ensign, Feb 1979, 69–73
“Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had ‘never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.’
“This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions. “Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened….Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was, till then, unconscious of itself. Jesus said that when the fig trees put forth their leaves, ‘summer is nigh.’ Thus warned that summer is upon us, let us not then complain of the heat.”

Got bored of my old theme so I thought I’d try out something a little more artsy. Like it? Hate it?

Check out this insight into being a fan.

So I’ve been hearing about how good Arrested Development is for years. Recently, I got a hold of the first three seasons and I’ve been finding a way to cram in a few episodes (about 20 min. each) after the kids go to bed. Let’s just say I’m putting this show at Seinfeld level. That may be just an early reaction as we all know a good Seinfeld can be watched repeatedly, but I’ll take the chance.
I’m hooked. That is all.
