The contemplations over our life affect how we live. In such thoughts, there are the concerns over generations existing together, what legacy one builds and leaves the latter, and the temporariness of all we have and build. Such contemplation is good. Wise men have done so. They have left their words for us to reflect upon. […]
Bipolar disorder has become the accepted name given to the manifest inner conflicts of disturbed individuals. While there are questions and concerns over the diagnosis of bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) itself, there are special considerations that arise as a person’s beliefs are considered. The source of those beliefs also invariably comes into question. Aside from […]
It would be difficult to place an exact event or time when a person experiences happiness for the first time. One would very much hope, it was during the days of infancy, even before the faculties of reason had started to develop. And so, by this way of referencing, happiness or the experiencing of it […]
What is Jumping to conclusions? Jumping to conclusions (officially the jumping conclusion bias, often abbreviated as JTC, and also referred to as the inference-observation confusion) is a psychological term referring to a communication obstacle where one “judge[s] or decide[s] something without having all the facts; to reach unwarranted conclusions”. In other words, “when I fail to distinguish between what I […]
To heal, mankind must become cleansed. Though we desire it, this is not in our power to accomplish. Not by the will of man, but by the will of God such a thing can be done. Eden Restored 22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of […]

Sin, the world, and death – we wonder of these at some time in our existence – by choice or we are compelled to. In these very words or some other, in one language or another, we are confronted and cannot run away. There is to be found a peculiar coexistence in human thought today, […]
The short answers is, it depends on the person to join or criticize JWs or any other institution. An important separation between the institution and the individual should always remain in the mind of the observer. The difference and the connection should be a constant, and an obvious fact.
The greater the sense of confusion grows, so grows the desperation to find answers. Finding oneself unable to compete in a world of ever-growing divides, even those with experience find themselves thrown off-balance. Falling down the slippery slopes of divided views, people find themselves secure at the very edges. From the very edges they establish […]
These 2 screenshots (cropped for ease) are taken from the JW article about the 4 horsemen. The article later shows Jesus as the first rider on the white horse. So, according to the Watchtower publication, Jesus is not only one of the 4, he is also leading the charge! By this understanding, Jesus is taking the […]
I was never interested in organized religion. Organized religion meant the confining and defining of any real faith a person might have. The worst taste of religion for me – deeply organized and correctly identified as a cult – was with Jehovah’s witnesses. Right from the time I was studying, I could see some crucial […]
I believe, there is a translation into “pseudo-reality” of anything or anyone as-soon-as it enters the digital realm and presented on screens. Whether it is human suffering, human achievement, money, the news, courtroom proceedings, or communication – everything stands to lose its value when it is put on display.
It would be a mistake to confine extremism to religion or political ideology or a nationality. Extremism can be found anywhere, even in music and art. It is usually a response to some external trouble. It could be seen as a means of countering the negative influence of outside forces, and as a means to […]
The undeniable fact is, an obvious difference exists between, what the Old Testament (Hebrew-Aramaic scriptures) and what the New Testament (Greek scriptures) speak of. The Old Testament speaks of cruelty that simply defies human understanding, and the New Testament speaks of love that defies human imagination. Yet, both are originating from the same God. How […]
Do you have a worldview? Even though you may have never sit down and enunciated what it is, or taken pains to explain it to others, most surely you do have a worldview. In the globalized world where, even the knowledge of distant galaxies is available to the boy on the street, potential for knowledge-based […]
The phrase “fake news” has become popular in recent times. In the year 2016, another related phrase “post truth” became popular. Outside of the political world, there is much that is happening which makes the appearance and use of these phrases timely and legitimate. A consideration of what is behind these ideas will help us […]
I saw war and I saw peace, I saw time and I saw space. I saw the needle’s tip and a strand of hair, I saw the butterfly’s wing and a hungry bear. Experiences vanish and memories cease, Man’s woes will grow as knowledge will increase.
Words of a moment, Flash of an idea, Like the twinkle of a distant star, Or the breeze from a falling feather.
The adoption of a thought is a uniquely human trait. With exposure to so much information which, clearly exceeds any human’s ability to process, it becomes difficult to be certain of anything. A person could be asked to question the validity of any thought, even those dear to him. Where a person is himself unwilling […]
The truth could be seen as, when, a statement is the same as the existence of a matter. When a man speaks of what is in existence, he offers his observation. He observes, understands, and expresses. If the understanding is the same as that of everyone else, it has to be regarded as truth! This […]
