Smoke and Mirrors
Living in fear and trepidation seems to be the direction our western society is taking us. It doesn’t matter which political party you belong to; it’s all just smoke and mirrors. I ask myself the all important question; who is worthy of trust? It is no wonder that there are so many self help Gurus that are willing to show you the direction to take, of course for a Fee; not only the CD, and Books and seminars, but all those over 2000 religions to lead you to the place of so called enlightenment. Oh! By the way which one is the correct one, they all claim to be the Way the Truth and the Life; just ask them! I was raised in a very poor household by a stepmother who could care less about me, and a father who was always working and went overboard with corporal punishment. Looking back to those times I can see a really a good kid that didn’t deserve the punishment. I was called stupid by my father so many times that began to believe it. I built a car put together from the junk yard and left home at 17years old. Spent two years active service in the Navy Reserve; went to College and worked as a machinist/injection mold maker. I went to Sydney Australia with a Pharmaceutical company as a medical detailer; Bought and ran an Indonesian restaurant for 7 years. My wife and I raised two beautiful girls and I never called ether one of them stupid, in fact they are very bright and loved. After 8 years in Australia we came back to California. I sold siding and roofing for houses, bought into 3 different multilevel marketing companies, and found they do not deliver on their promises. The one thing I have always looked for in any one or anything is truth, honesty, and integrity. Needles to say it is difficult to find. I didn’t find it in my youth, even though I was brought up in a religious household; what I found was hypocrites. Through my journey in life I have tried many churches and found people who want to worship and believe in a God, or many Gods, or some supernatural entity. The sad part is, they really want some one to tell them how to live their lives, for a price of course. I tried Transcendental meditation, and found it to be relaxing, but it didn’t fill me up with joy and happiness. I have studied many self help books and attended many lectures on finding and acquiring wisdom of life. Finally I have arrived at the gate of intellectual fulfillment and wisdom. I have entered the universe of honesty, truth, and integrity, a safe place of true friendship and love, wealth, and an integrated realm of consciousness that fills my heart mind and soul, a place where there are no smoke and mirrors. This place is called Neothink.
