  1. Once again a pure genius enlightened perspective.
    Channeling the power of conflict to create something good.
    Learning to use our own inner authority without self-deception and abuse least God not love us for doing so, heaven forbid he be so shallow.

    Yet the other day I was struggling with my teenage daughter to be more submissive and grateful, mentioning that we don’t appreciate certain tones and attitudes that come from her while we are just as imperfect if not more so than her ourselves.

    Thanks for this, I’ll be mindful of this. Keep em coming. Quality over quantity. This was great. Bumper music well I’m sure there’s better out there, but not worth my time to think of a better one so it’s good enough… I mean you could use anything and it would still be great!!

  2. Thanks David. I have mixed feelings about the bumper music as well. Next one might be a different bumper music! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We’re all just going one day at time and doing our best, I think.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and experiences, Jack. This falls in line with ideas that have been heavy on my mind lately about how painful opposition leads to using authority with humility. I love this general idea of not just working through the tensions but using the experiences from them to fuel your progression.

    And I like that you’re trying out new music. I like your old one, but we should all embrace change a bit more.
