Marathon (1/19/06)

This race turned out to be a marathon. Having been a distance runner in my youth I remember the mental challenges of protraction. This race is no different. There have been the course obstacles like betrayal, theft, incompetence, ignorance, and others. Those are tough but not near as hard as the inner struggle. These obstacles can enhance the inner struggles like betrayal tore my heart, challenged my forgiveness, and fatigued me. Inside would be the ramblings of doubt and conviction. “Can I finish, Do I care to, why me, how much longer, this isn’t fun, what difference does it make if I quit, you can do this, one step at a time, finish what you started, you’re no quitter, finish for you no matter who cares, why not you.” etc. I remember how I’d cramp and everything within me said, “stop.” All the fasting, prayer, and delay has a similar sensation. I never stopped as a runner and always made the finish line. Some of you I’m certain are fatigued by a marathon you didn’t know you entered but I want you to keep moving. We can all raise hands in victory at the end and take in that replenishing elixir of completion and redemption. I‘m tired also but not in mind. Be of good cheer the finish is near.

This is a "catch up" of the writings that could not be published during the travel time between Utah and California.

Notice TACO

I rarely give you a response along with your buddy Neodo. However, for the last time, I will respond.

You live in fear! You have no courage to engage in changes that might free you and your family from economic and cultural slavery!

Please do not respond. There really isn't much you and I can talk about!

You are a waist to progress and the only reason you speak against this process is because you were only greedy from the beginning and had and still don't have any understanding of what is going on!

Enough Said, do not address me any longer.
