I came to this conclustion last night as I sat with my soulmate and my
dog, Sirius. In a tent just off the trail, in a tent we put up under a
I smoked a fat joint of the Holy Ganja and thought to my self.

"I am the force within,
I am not my body, I am not my emotions, Iam not my mind:
What I am is eternal, immortal and infinite.
What I have, has beauty and strength,
And there is nothing I cannot learn to control"

And went to sleep with my dog and my soulmate by my side knowing I am

Sometimes people come into your life and you know 
right away that they were meant to be there; they 
serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or 
help figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be; your roommate, 
neighbor, professor, long-lost friend, lover or even a 
complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them, you 
know that very moment that they will affect your life in 
some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you and at the time they may 
seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you 
realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would 
have never realized your potential, strength, willpower 
or heart.  Everything happens for a reason.  Nothing happens 
by chance or by means of good or bad luck.  Illness, injury, 
love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all 
occur to test the limits of your soul.  Without these small
tests - whether they are events, illnesses or relationships -
life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to 
nowhere.  Safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly 
pointless.  The people you meet who affect your life, and 
the successes and downfalls you experience, create who you 
are; even the bad experiences can be learned from.  
In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important 

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, 
forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust 
and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your 
heart to.  If someone loves you, love them back 
unconditionally; not only because they love you, but 
because they are teaching you to love, and they are opening 
your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or 
felt without them.

Make every day count.  Appreciate every moment and take  
from it everything that you possibly can, for you may 
never be able to experience it again.  Talk to people 
you have never talked to before, and actually listen. 
Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights
high.  Hold your head up because you have every right to.  
Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in 
yourself; for if you don't believe in yourself, no one 
else will believe in you, either.  You can make of your
life anything you wish.  Create your own life and then 
go out and live it.
