I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

Your pal, Jess

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Some Native American Wisdom

With commentary


regarding quotes, it's pick and choose.
if you believe it, it's the truth (for you),
until critical thinking or another quote comes along.

-Don't be afraid to cry. It will free your mind of sorrowful thoughts. - Hopi. I agree with this. Get it all out, and be done with it.

on crying
Babies can cry whenever they want because they can't talk. People cry for sadness, grief, happiness, pain, and acting/crocodile tears...often to manipulate (or if there's something in their eye). Did I miss anything? Issues should be resolved, and I agree people should cry as little as possible, even if that means crying nonstop for a week, and drinking water just to refill your glass. Being a wreck for awhile is acceptable, til you can get your feces together. Maybe that's not the best advice.

It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand. - Apache.
That's the same as our quote, walk softly but carry a big stick.

Immortality (or another generation, anyway)
They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind. - Tuscarora
-this quote gives life to the Tuscarora, as a matter of fact (I'd never heard of them b4).

If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come. - Arapaho
lifelong learning is answering the questions of your youth finally as you age. I have quite a backlog, myself. I love the internet. For instance, I wondered about seedless watermelons.

listen all y'all it's sabotauge:
The weakness of the enemy makes our strength. - Cherokee
The art of war is deception, don't forget, too. That's the hardcore shit.

Force, no matter how concealed, begets resistance. - Lakota
For no resistance, use no force, then, right? Jedi police be damned.

He who would do great things should not attempt them all alone. - Seneca
Yes WE can. You and me and Barack make three.

A brave man dies but once, a coward many times. - Iowa
It takes a mightily brave man to die repeatedly, however, I would add.
Born again?
