College Seniors, DON’T GET A JOB!

College Seniors, DON’T GET A JOB!

If you or someone you know is about to graduate from college, please advise them NOT to get a job! This generation seems to already get that.

You're going to love his vibe, his intellect, his humility, his heart, his leadership and his passion/mission.

Being Certain in an Uncertain World

Being Certain in an Uncertain World

We live in a world that is characterized by uncertainty. We can't know that the sun will "rise" in the east tomorrow. We can only have a high degree of certainty around that based on our historical observations. However, there's an interesting thing about the human mind.

You Are Not Your Mind

You Are Not Your Mind

You HAVE a mind, but you are NOT your mind. You HAVE a brain, but you are NOT your brain. You HAVE thoughts, but you are NOT those thoughts. Your inability to acknowledge that is your prison. Your ability to acknowledge that is your liberty.
