Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Our Worthless Congress

    The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets. — Will Rogers Since February I have been threatening to write another blog, but I let life get in the way. Or maybe it was just apathy. Sometimes I just get confused, like members of Congress. Anyway I […]

  • Amazed

    I transcend earthly bounds. I never cease to amaze myself because I haven’t yet found my limits. I am quite ready to accept the limits of what I can do, but every time I feel that way – boom! – God touches me and I do something that’s even more stupendous than whatever I’ve done […]

  • Meaningless

    Anyone who thinks they’re important is usually just a pompous moron who can’t deal with his or her own pathetic insignificance and the fact that what they do is meaningless and inconsequential. – William Thomas As I look around at the chaos I can’t help but wonder why these people don’t have a life. The […]

  • Within

    The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha One of the basis of self-improvement is the ability to “see” within.

  • Getting There

    Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. – Kevyn Aucoin Sometimes we get confused, […]

  • The Dream

    “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” –  C.S. Lewis It has been said by the many self-improvement experts that one should “dream big” in order to move ahead. Well enough I suppose but there is a lingering question that never seems to get answered: How does […]

  • A New Year

    Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.’ — Alfred Lord Tennyson As we bid farewell to 2016 I find myself looking forward to 2017. Then I found myself asking a question: What is there about a new year which changes us, often affects us, and sometimes leaves […]


    The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. — Melody Beattie As we approach 2017 we look back upon the year with amazement. There can be no other way to describe 2016. So many things happened in 2016 […]


    Expectancy is the atmosphere for miracles. — Edwin Louis Cole Every year we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Son of God, our creator and the entity we call upon in our time of need. Related posts: Merry Christmas
