If we desire to know the truth about our world, we must be willing to suffer. It is imperative that we be able to look at the facts, as they are, hold them in our minds, no matter how unpleasant or painful they may be, understand the consequences of what it would mean if they are true and - in some instances - rearrange our lives accordingly.

The process of choosing disillusionment as a remedy to subjectivity and a desire for truth is a form of…

The Blind Men and The Elephant
By John Godfrey Saxe

It's fear. Plain and simple. Fear of pain; fear of being hurt; fear of getting "caught up". I can see it so clearly now. And it's the music that opened my eyes.
There are several soundtracks that characterize my life. '90s Garth Brooks always brings back memories of my father. Metallica's Black Album will be forever linked to the summer after my freshman year of high school. And it is Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and the like that define my experiences with Va's Finest… Continue

Hello, my name is Jamil Aaron and I am part of the duo that created L.M.G. and Eye C U Online. I am contacting you to apologize for my shortcomings and ask for your forgiveness. Over the last year and a half, I have battled everything from depression, drug abuse and suicidal thoughts stemming from my inability to make L.M.G. turn a profit. The reason: my partner and I did not start L.M.G. with money in mind… Continue

Intention has three factors influencing it which are the will, desire and belief. A Being could not act unless it Willed to Act; and it would not Will to Act, unless it Desired to Act; and it would not Desire to Act unless it obtained some Satisfaction thereby. What it is satisfied by will depend on its own nature. It’s own nature is determined by its consciousness.
Therefore the order of causation in mental creation is Consciousness >> Beingness >>…

One day last year when her daughter, Ainsley, was 9, Tracee Sioux pulled her out of her elementary school in Fort Collins, Colo., and drove her an hour south, to Longmont, in hopes of finding a satisfying reason that Ainsley began growing pubic hair at age 6. Ainsley was the tallest child in her third-grade class. She had a thick, enviable blond-streaked ponytail and big feet, like a puppy's. The curves of her Levi's matched her mother's. Continue

Normally, Danielle wouldn't have pulled her Kotex tampon out of the applicator for inspection before using it. I mean, who does that?
