We live in a world that promotes Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Lifestyles dictate for us to push and push all day long just to say we are not lazy and we are doing the best we can.

Each time we walk out the door of our homes, we enter into a real live war zone. People are so stressed out, unhappy, and unhealthy because of priorities and a need for acceptance. It has proven there are so many ways to die, car accidents, bullets, falls, natural disasters, suicide etc. We have to stand guard against other human beings because we do not know who is a walking time bomb.

The universal reality is we are all fragile. We all are losing comfort zones needed to remain healthy and strong. Just when we think it is safe, someone is murdered by the hand of another person or raped, robed,kidnapped,abused etc. We are all accessible to victimization.

How do we walk on earth without fear of attack, death, violations and being at the wrong place at the wrong time?

There is only one way and that is to accept the truth of the real problem here. We have been so physically active that we shut down and ignore the self on the inside that is starving for acknowledgment and unity.

PTSD reveals the reality of our unseen self, the self that thrives on truth and love. But who wants to hear that? Very few people do because it has not anything to do with anybody but you. Yet it is this self that controls everything that sets us free. We have to go back in and come back out equipped to stand in a world battling against itself. We are all soldiers needing to be loved and to give love.

Thereís an old joke that goes, Chicago has two seasons, winter and construction, which I guess is funny to those who donít actually live here. For the rest of us, itís a none-to-gentle reminder of the circle of life; men fix roads, weather destroys roads, men fix roads; good news for construction workers, bad news for innocent commuters such as myself.


Ah, here is 14 February ! Another Valentineís day for the year 2008. The world celebrates this day by sending cards, flowers and gifts to their lovers.

Where There's No Smoke, There's Ire

On January 1st, the state of Illinois began an all out smoking ban in public places. This came to me as a bit of a shock. Oh sure, the state had announced that it was going to institute such a ban, but I never really believed it would come to pass, at least not in the city of Chicago.

Some small incidents or encounters during your young age life, have a tremendous influence on your behaviour, philosophy of life, decision making etc in your later life. They become your guide stars too.

The price of instant friendship

Call it a good or bad or an undesirable habit. But I canít give up the practice of stopping someone on a public road and talking with him. ďAn instant friendship makerĒ kind of strategy.
