Spado, we all know people are placed in our paths for a reason. Sometimes they are there forever, sometimes just a short time.

I came to this site a year ago, newly divorced, thinking I may find myself a biker and fall in love. That is over, now I come here because of my dear friends. I am no longer interested in finding love...I'm going to let it find me.

I don't know why you came here...you're even married.

I'm not looking to date, and you're not either. I guess this is where our paths were meant to cross.

I'm glad they are crossing. You are SUCH an inspiration. Your words have caused me to re-think my ways, re-think my feelings, and re-think my purpose.

Thank you, my friend, for sharing that with us. There is no way I can find the words to tell you how it made me feel.

I look forward to having you on my path for quite a while.

Along with so many others I have been blessed to find.

Like HarleyGirl says, this site is kinda "hidden". At least so far.

I want to go on record and confess to you this:
I do not align myself with any religion. My prayers are from me to God, The Creator with no intermediary.
This is the most 'at peace' I have found myself in my lifetime. So many lessons on how to exist in peace and happiness have come to me in thoughts and dreams as well as written words.

Last September, I made a trip to Wyoming and went to the Medicine Wheel, an ancient wheel formed from rocks laid out in a circular fashion on top of a mountain.

I had to walk up to this place, about a mile and a half, from a small gravel parking area.It's hard for me to walk long distances because of past medical problems, but I am still able to put one foot in front of the other.
Being over 10,000 feet above sea level increased the challenge. I hiked up there every day for four consecutive days. Each day I tied a bundle of colored cloth ties to represent my prayers and tied them, one bundle in each direction, each day when I got to the top of the mountain.

As I walked and stopped to rest on the way up each day, I would be talking to The Creator. Asking that the Spirits be with me to help me understand what my purpose here on Mother Earth is. I asked the Spirits to guide me and protect me. I told them I was just a man and therefore dumb and couldn't "see" and understand the world and needed help and guidance.

I went back down to my campsite and prepared for the next day and another journey to the top of that mountain and the Spirit of God at the Medicine Wheel.

I received messages. Ideas that popped into my head and wouldn't leave. Words of wisdom that made me think and required understanding. Thoughts so strong they became memories with exact parameters.
Some would say I had a vision.

After four days, I broke camp and left, heading back East towards home. I still carry these messages with me, these life teachings. I pray that I keep these ways in my life forever. When I falter and forget, I pray that the Spirit comes into my heart and helps me once again to have peace.

I tell you this to confess to you what has happened to me. How my life has changed from constant depression, anger, mistrust, fear and other feelings of despair.
I confess to the start of healing for myself.

You see, just making it up that mountain once, was like a small miracle. I've had six heart attacks, it's hard to climb mountains.

I learned not to lie, to anyone let alone yourself. Not to judge, ever. To quit talkin' about other people in any negative way. To forgive and to love everyone, even those who have or may hurt me.
And I learned that I CAN do something that I say I'm gonna do. I completed my commitment to go to the mountain and climb it for four days straight.

These lessons came to me in my own way when God knew I would and could accept them, understand them and put them into practice in my everyday life.

For me, I believe I probably had a chance to get these lessons growing up if I had paid attention in Sunday School, or if I had read and studied the Bible. Either I didn't take advantage of the chance to learn them or I wasn't ready to learn them.

So, I am not religious. And I know I have been touched by the Spirit of God.
May this same Spirit touch your lives however it comes to you.

Gosh...you're absolutely right.

Feels like a little hidden room no one else knows about.

You did good making this room for us..thank you.

Peace and safety...I think that most of us are people pleasers...it seems like it's not good to do that...but then I think of that scripture that Paul wrote when he said he would be all things to all people in hopes of winning some..WOW! There is NOTHING wrong with not wanting to hurt someone and be a peacemaker either.

Yeah Bear...you are far from fake. I (like everyone else) has fake people in their life.

You, my friend, are not fake. Trust me.

I do somewhat understand what you mean though as far as fake. I sometimes feel the same way, because I am a people pleaser. I will inconvenience myself for anyone at anytime. I've read it's that subconscious desire to be liked.

Remember, the first part of fixing something, is recognizing the problem. Now we just move forward.

Tomorrow is another day, my friend.

Confession,huh? Well folks, I fear the old bear is a fake, who lets people see only what he choses.
I really do try to retain my Peace, but it's a struggle at times. Recently had an emotional setback and instead of accepting that "all is as it should be", I want to come out fighting. I have no Peace and thoughts of violence not only against the system, but to adjourn to the local bar and find someone upon which to vent my anger, fill my head. The only qualifications required is; is male, bigger than me and can defend himself. ha.
So, I guess my confession is that Bigbear is a fake.

Fake- I think not!
Honest and human- obviously!

I know you're only human, that ain't bein' a phony.
You told me a few weeks ago not to be so hard on myself, so, back at ya'.

Start over Brother, think about it four times before reacting. Good positive stuff sent your way BB.

The serenity prayer is not just for the addicted. If the people of the world were able to live as the prayer suggests, there would no longer be strife among mankind.

Thanks Seeme and all. Always making me remember my lessons.

Dove--yes!

Creek--Are you OK? Don't leave us alright? Hang tight.

Spado--That is beautiful..I needed that.

Seeme--does serenity mean calmness??

I want to thank those that wrote me in private...Even though I requested that you post your replies to me..because I am not the only one who will benefit from your words...but thank you..thank you..thank you..I feel myself stepping up on the dirt mound already! It's a great day!


that depends on how you look at it--to me serenity means peace and joy--but to obtain that i must heal
