Life and All That Goes With It



Life.

It's one of those weird things I still haven't figured out, but hope to make totally clear to you by the end of this post.

Or maybe just my life. In that case you might not learn anything at all about life in general - except sleep, and maybe death.

I mean, parts of it (life) are starting to make sense.

Like sleep for example.

Why was it when I was little I dreaded sleep?

And when I got older I started to love it, but still avoided it?

And now, why is it that it seems I live for the time I can sleep?

The thing I use to hate and avoid I now strive for.

Why is that?


My answer is simple.

The reason children hate sleep is because they just "woke" up and are very confused. They do not know if this place called Earth is really Heaven or just something very much like it.

And since it (life) is so good why sleep?

As you get slightly older life is still "heaven" but you have also learned to appreciate resting and sleep - yet avoid it.

But then life shows its true colors. It's more like hell then heaven. And sleep is the best way to escape all the bad stuff - or at least re-charge so you can face that next phase of "life".

Yet there's even more to it than that.

Sleep is like this mysterious time-out in life that we have no control over yet love and look forward to.

And the better your day, the more fun you have, the more you accomplish, the better your sleep is.

Kinda like death.

What if sleep is just a touch of death?

We all want to live great lives so we will be ready to die when the time comes.

We want a full life with lots of fun so that our death will be better and more fullfilling.

And we all look forward to death as a mysterious rest.

For some, more than others.

- A satirical theory that just came to me: what if, also like sleep, you dream while you are dead. Everyone's' spirits dream together and sort of get acquainted (sort of, I say, because as we all know in the dream world no-one can control what they do or say or such).

And after the best sleep ever, full of nightmares and good dreams, you "wake" up for the final time to the never-sleeping future (who knows which one though :/). -


So, yeah, I about have sleep figured out ;b.


But what about the immediate important things like
college, career,
marriage, what I want to do, and those sort of minor (major) future things?

I'll have to admit I still don't have them figured out.

With college: I go back and forth between wanting to go and saying it's an evil place ( right now I want to go and think that it is an evil place for most people that are living purpose less lives at college, lol :b ).

With career: I think careers are stupid. Just do what you love and hopefully it won't become work. And for me that's something with writing or teaching or kids or something...yeah, still working on it. :D

With marriage: Sometimes I say, "Yeah, some day." Other times I'm like "Nope. Not for me." Right now I'm just saying "Right now I'm not married, I'm just living life to the fullest And definitely not the dullest un-like some people I know."

With what I want to do: I decide that spur of the moment each morning and works good right now. :D

And with everything else: What else is there? I work with it one issue at a time as can manage it.

And so far that works pretty good :]

So, I doubt this has helped you out at all - unless sleep now makes more sense or you laughed a lot. If so, well, I guess my work is finished!

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish.
I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am.
But my perception  has changed with experience.

It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own.
But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish.
I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural.
Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream.

"Mom," I said. "He's drinking soda!" 


During my years living with the Amish I learned a lot about them. As individuals. As a culture. And about their history. Recently…

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello.
My name is Greg. 
I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes.
"If only..."
But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me.
It is cold.
My clothes are thin.
My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance. 
I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon. 
They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know.
It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me.
As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted.
Convicted, but not  guilty.
Years. 
68 years for standing against injustice.
How many years have I sat in here?
I have forgot.
All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth just so I could spend life as if dead?"
I cry out to God - does He hear me?
I do not know. I can no…

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials).
I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release. 
{If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing}
I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p
Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day.
Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very pleased with security as far …

I'm Not Into Politics, But...

“Hey, did you hear what's happening with those guys in Oregon from Malheur Refuge?”
“No. Tell me about it!”
“A bunch of guys felt that their rights as US citizens were being violated, so they decided to take back a bit of land for the “people” as a sign to the federal government to back off, and now they are all facing years to life in prison for 'terrorism' and-” My words slow down as I see the person's face slowly becomes void of emotion. Bored? Or do they not like what I'm saying…? Have I just lost a friend? What did I say????




“Oh. Yeah.. I'm not really into politics.” They say.
“Oh, OK.” I say. But inside something feels wrong. Not into politics???
Hey, I hate politics. I despise them. So much stress, and fighting, and corruption. But… it's a part of life. Or is it???
What if I told you Fred's barn just burned down and we were going to go do some things to encourage him and help him out. Get some guys to rebuild it. Make him some meals. You, know, …
