with the idea of being in love?
Unfortunately, it is actually quite common.

They choose the colors for the nursery.
They design all the aspects of their married life.
A real person stands no chance of measuring up to those fantasies.

A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor,
mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist.

Which beliefs bring out the best in you?
Which beliefs hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.

should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.

There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In religion and politics, people's belief's and convictions

I can only make myself unhappy by trying to second guess
what anyone else thinks or does.

not to change your own opinions,
but to celebrate all our human differences - in peace.
