New Beginnings

I have spent most of my life, marking time, marching in time, watching time, counting time, and many other ways looking at time as being something that was finite and fleeting.

Lately, I have started to look at time as something that I have been unconsciously obsessed with. I have always, I guess, looked at it as something there is never enough of. That I'll never have enough of it to get everything done.

I also was never a religious person, and I'm still not. Seems like a strange thing for someone pursuing the ministry to say, but it's true. Probably why I am a Religious Scientist.

Now that I am more aware of who and what I am, I find myself less concerned as to how much I accomplish in my life, because I am an eternal soul. I truly believe that. Being eternal, I am able to know that anything I do is good. Hell I could just BE and that would be good, but I choose to do and be more. I enjoy just "being" sometimes, but I need more, so I try to help people.

Being a minister enables me to help in many ways. Having life experiences in finance, construction, manufacturing, IT and design, allows me to offer ideas and solutions from many angles, but I also find most people need to doe the inquiry themselves. I can help guide them, but they need to do the work. The wise Chinese prophet, Lao Tzu once said,
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." It's so true.

Anyway, while I still feel I need to be "on time" for appointments out of respect, I feel that whatever I do in this world is enough, and just right. So here I am almost a reverend, ready to start my ministry reaching out to those who may believe as I do. More on that next time.
