I will start posting many of my journal entries, thoughts and meditations, and dreams and visions, starting with Friday, December 23, 2016. I am doing so so that people can see the ups and downs, the victories and setbacks; that life is a challenge for everyone. I have so far to go that it is really astonishing at times.
If you feel that you are a failure in life much of the time, you are not alone. If you seem to struggle most of the time, you are not alone. I will not pretend to have gone through what many have gone through. I know many people have gone through so much worse than I that to consider what I have experienced to be problems would likely be an insult to them, and for this I apologize in advance.
We all experience our own struggles, doubts, fears, unbelief, lack of faith, setbacks, illnesses, troubles, etc. To each of us, what we are going through at the time is the biggest and most important problem in the world. That is because it is our own struggle and our own problem. We must remember, there is nothing new under the sun. Every problem that is occurring today has happened in the past, and is likely happening to thousands of others every day, all over this precious planet we call Earth.
