What keeps me from soaring.

Holding Me Down


Your Authority

I have the ability to change.

My Authority

And the authority to do so.

    Hmmmm, ummmm, hmmmm Weeeeeell, you are right you have the power to cut the luggage, but I’d pause for a minute before i broke out the scissors. You see I hate prejudice and I hate murder and I hate rape. My job,what I got paid for, used to be to judge the safety of truckers to reduce accidents and injuries. Abuse makes me angry, as does fleecing others of their savings by using untruths and bullying. I used to teach rigidity in following safety protocols and rules of the road. and awareness.

    There is a very famous book that says:”There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens … ”

    Perhaps it would be more appropriate to pursue Faith and Grace and from that perspective the right use of hate, judgement, anger, and rigidity would become clearer. Life is simultaneously far simpler than we can imagine and far more complex than we can imagine.


    • Paul, I agree with your assessment of these tools. It’s when we take those tools and use them for something they shouldn’t be used for that weighs us (me) down. I also like the idea of pursuing. Pursuing faith and grace would in turn put all of the tools in their right light. 🙂 Thank you.

    You achieve a mighty powerful message in just a few pen strokes. I think the words are almost superfluous! Well done.


  10. 😀 😀 Love it. Let it all go. Easier not to be tethered. A person can stand straight and tall–easier on the back too. ❤
