There is Someone who knows and understands our every thought and feeling, the pleasure and the pain, the joy and the sorrow. Someone who perceives the deepest needs and longings of your heart. Let's talk to Him. Here's an article inspired by the writing of  Vita King.

Do you know who you are? That is a question that many still ask even at the age of sixty. Do you know what you see when you look at yourself? Do you know what you are, does it matter to you? Are you just in the world going along from day today, never giving it a thought. You get up, shower, coffee, dress, and go about your day.

Stop. Who are you? Is anything getting to you? Are you in love? Do you know what love is? Are you mad, weeping for no reason? Do you love the feel of the sun rays hitting you, as you walk? Do the clouds do anything for you when you look up?

Do you look up; do you know that the clouds are there? Have you given any thought to life, how do you know who you are, how do I find out? Do you know your age, your real age? Do you have a soul?

Our obligation is to give meaning to life, and in doing so to overcome the passive, indifferent life.-Elie Wiesel

Find a place for you and rest in it. In your room, office, park, a place that is calm, a thinking place, but not thinking. Do you pray, do you know how to pray, do you know who to pray to, is it a form, or a moving being? Does it shine, talk who or what do you pray to? When did it start, how long has this thing called pray gone on in your life?

A minute, a day, an hour, weeks, months, years, again who do you pray to? Do you know who God is? Where He came from, how long He has been here, what is this thing or person called God? Have you read anything about Him, do you think itís true or you have given it no thought? In this quiet place that you have made for yourself, position yourself on your knees that are your start.

Start talking to God, just talk, He hears you, let it all go, everything that you feel, and whatever everything that is in you, tell God. He already knows it before you say it, there is no need to lie. You can tell Him the truth; He takes you as you are. How does it feel? What am I suppose to feel? You won't know until it happens.

As time goes on, and it is not over night, it takes years, to be free, from self, completely free. Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself and be lenient to everybody else.

Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good rapport, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things.
