Wow this blog is really falling into disrepair, its not that i am lazy it just i dont have the tie to sit down and blog.

Where i am at now... Well i am 25 and still thinking the same thoughts as were i was when i started this blog... stuck on the concepts of is there a god, do i have free will, why is the world the way it is, can it be changed, why is abbreviation such a long word.

I thought the job i am currently doing would give more answers, however it merely raises more questions, morality is tested, the concepts of justice and the lies we take as truth.

Terry Pratchett wrote an awesome book called the Hog father, in which he makes the point that young people are conditioned to believe in the smaller lies, such as the tooth fairy, Santa clause, in order that they believe in the bigger lies later in life. such as truth, justice and the American Way, or Australian Values. There is so little fairness or justice in the world. Maybe we need to believe in the lies to make the world work, i don't think people could truly go on knowing the truth or maybe it is just easier to believe in the lies.

A few years dedicated to writing and thinking and i still cant find a hard and fast rule, everything has its exception. The natural laws, Physics has it exceptions, quantum mechanics and Newtonian Mechanics don't mesh. Our ideas of biology are continually changing, even mathematics continually advances and changes.

I guess i have a point in here that i am 25 years old and i still know nothing, the harder i look the more questions i find, either the answers i seek are unobtainable or just non existent.

Please note this is not a depressed or down post, just getting some stuff off my chest.

That old line between genius and insanity really is very thin... I think it's time we crossed it!

Hi Aidan! It is Jewel! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth either. I'm trying to get back into my blogging more regularly, as June was not a very good month for me physically BUT I am doing better.
I was 23 and had so many questions and doubts and wondered about the reason for my existence and the purpose of my life. It was then that I gave my heart to the Lord and everything changed. I know there are many scoffers as to the legitimacy of one God and His existence but I know it is real and true because of the life-changing experience I had. I've not questioned or doubted since. The world has been and always will be filled with evil and so on because man does indeed have a free will, as God intended. Bad things happen to good people because we live in a world that is beset by sin. I've not always had an easy time of it but that has not surprised me. It has made me draw closer to the ONE who is able to give peace in midst of trouble. Many people question why I've had to suffer with pain and disability. Why doesn't God heal me? He can. He has of other ailments. But I don't question why He doesn't. These bodies weren't made to last forever, so why should it surprise us when they begin to wear out? *little grin* I rely ever the more on Him when the pain is great. He'll see me through, is what I know for sure.
There ARE good and trustful people in our world, Aidan. You just happen to be in a profession where you see the underbelly of so much. I honestly don't know if I could handle it. I hope it helps to know that I pray for you, Aidan. Sorry to go on as I have, but I just had to share my heart with you, k? ((HUGS))

Yep, I did not take this post as being a depressed one at all. You are simply asking questions, wanting answers and not finding them. Frustrating I know. Some people live by the stars, they live by their horoscopes, won;t set foot out the door until they have read Jonatahn Cainer in the paper, and won't set foot out the door if things don't look good.
Everyone has different ways of trying to answer questions, or how they go about their life.
You know, you are a thoughtful person, you ask questions and try to find answers like I used to..well, to a point, still do.
I see things in my work that alot of people don't and may never come across. The questions Why? How can this be? Can I improve this situation? and countless other questons come to mind, every day I work.
So what do I do? I do the best I can for the time I am at work. I treat my patients as a whole, with complete resoect nd dignity. I see where they come from and whre they will return..sometimes, the places they have to return to are know, places we would not contemplate living. Why they are there, why they don't get out, the choices they maje, just aren't up to us.
They tell us not to get personal, not to feel things so personally, but well, I do, and I know others that do too. I think, the day I stop wondering about whay the World is the way it is, and can it be the day I should just sit and do nothing.
It is difficult to grasp things sometimes. For me, what I do, is take time out, try to get back to nature each day, even if it means sitting out in a nice quiet spot for a while or reading or listening to music, and I think of the nice things that have happened of late, of the places I want to go next vacation, and so on.
Blah..sorry, I am babbling...I am going now , LOL.
Well, you provoked thought in me now.

Aidan my man I am twice your age and I will confirm that you will find twice as many questions by the time you get here.

The real problem in this world are the people who stop asking questions and start thinking that they have all of the answers. So as long as you're still asking you're on the right track.

All that we can do is recognise patterns and try to predict probabilities..but even then people will continue to surprise you.
We're as unpredictable as LIFE is and it is a dog chasing his tail scenario...because LIFE is so helter skelter we decide to do ranDUMB things that screw up our lives.

Try to avoid all decisions that start off with "Oh what the hell why not?"

Donnnnnnnnnnnnnn, I think most of Aidan's decisions thus far have been the "Why the heck not?" variety! (Including marriage, and that's worked out ok so far!!!) haha
