    Hey There, this weblog seems funny and narrow when I open it using Opera. Nonetheless, it seems to be fine in IE. Does anyone else observe this?

    I love this post. Partly because it’s what I’ve been trying to explain to my friends but the analogies you used I think are awesome and helped me understand better what I’ve felt for a while now.

    Thank you so much, I’m now following you on twitter 🙂
    Peace and Love

    Oh Baba, this is food 4 thought. Fate vs freewill or nature vs nurture is a hot topic. I don’t have fatalism in my vocubulary or a pie in the sky anathem when it comes down to the work you must put into this journey to evolve. My people (in da hood)can free themselves with less litany of prayers and more self actualization-education beyond the walls of secondary education can help us crack open the windows to possibilities. Why take a sandwich to a buffet- a rich man told me once. The world is a buffet, and poor people like myself have to mobilize toward the greater good of it all. self determination is the key to evolution.

      Well spoken.

      At the end of the day, if it’s raining on you, then get out of the rain!

      We are the authors of our successes as well as failures. We “design” our tomorrow by virtue of our actions and more precisely that which we give most of our thoughts, and emotions to is what we manifest. So there is a “Road” we where born to travel, as we chose such journey, yet our “ace” in the hole is our “freedom of choice”….

      I really appreciate your visits and thought provoking comments!!!
