Deep thoughts, post them here

okay everyone, i am going through some rough times in my life and i just want to see what everyones thoughts are, just to soothe my mind. here is my two cents:
He rose again from his shadow to contemplate the decision before him. The sun was descending to the west, and he felt it exploding behind him. A few feet from where his eyes rested upon his young face, stood two signs. One sign pointed down the road to a car that would take him into the womb of certainty, should he choose that path. The other sign pointed to a trail that led into a lush green forest.

He looked at the sign pointing to the car. Upon it was the words CERTAINTY-10 miles, imprinted with big gleaming black letters. Underneath this word, written a bit smaller, it read: Acceptance, Security. He stared at this sign for a while before shifting his gaze to the other. This sign was older looking and the words were faded- it read: UNCERTAINTY – miles unknown. Underneath, like the other sign, were two words, Risk, Freedom.

The boy became confused and distraught once again as his eyes began to swell with water. Most of his life he had been told that this day would come. They had all said for him to prepare himself, and he knew now that this would be the biggest decision he would ever make.

A resolution that would decide his life’s course. Those close to him assured him it would ultimately be his decision; but at the same time he felt urged to get into the car that would lead him to Certainty. They had all been where he was now, and they would convince him that getting into the care would be the safest way to live his life. Most of them had chosen the path of certainty. They had all sat down in the comfort of the car, and like many before, became secure and accepted… but were they happy? Were their hearts singing everyday when they awoke? The boy thought about this as he turned to let the setting sun to dry his face. He watched the beautiful merging of the sun and the ocean.

The sight seemed to return a calmness that had been absent from his soul. He breathed deep, longing the rays of light to enter his body; to maybe melt away his emotions. Then, after awhile, he turned to face the inevitable. The boy retracted his eyelids to let all perception enter. He glared at the first sign, trying to dismantle the words until they were naked, and revealing their true meaning. CERTAINTY…ACCEPTANCE…SECURITY. He couldn’t figure out why the world was obsessed with obtaining these things; why most deemed this safest for ones life. He shifted his eyes to the other sign, looking deep into the words. UNCERTAINTY…RISK…FREEDOM. He repeated the words over and over as he read them. The slowly but suddenly, the revelation crawled into his head and rested upon his brain. The boy quickly looked up into the lush green canopy. Then he glanced at the car. He felt his heart begin to beat harder. He looked back to the trail and the forest that eventually enveloped it. The boy watched as a bird took flight from one tree to another. He noticed a squirrel run to the base of the tree and then into a bush. He realized that animals are not concerned with security or acceptance. They are content with being who they are and they are satisfied with what they have. His breath quickened as he looked back to the car and to the looming city beyond. He pondered all the people scurrying to and fro in the shadows of the looming city beyond. He wondered if they were content with who they were, if they were satisfied with the path they have chosen.

The boy concluded that maybe some were; but the rest were trying to fill the void where their childhood hearts once sang. Most were trying to get somewhere the car could not take them; like most things in this life it is not certain…He felt a wonderful burning in his chest, as he finally turned his back to the Car forever. As he moved to the head of the Uncertain trail he glanced at the sign that pointed to it. A subtle smile crept across his face. For now he knew what the sign meant. The boy stood before the path of Uncertainty, held his head high and said aloud, “This is the route for my life. I know because my heart showed me the way. This path will not be an easy one. There will be many obstacles blocking my way and many challenges to overcome; but by doing so I know I will learn and grow from every experience, pleasant or unpleasant. I understand that by taking this Uncertain path, I may risk acceptance and security, and at times life might be filled with suffering; but if the risk is taken out of life, then there will be no true living. Though the risk of my life I am choosing I know ultimately…I will be free…” Tears of joy began to gather in the boys eyes as he began to take the path of Uncertainty, because he knew he was following his heart, and his heart told him to follow his childhood dreams. Just before the boy was consumed by the thicket, he looked back over his should at the place where the car had been. He laughed and sang gloriously, for the car…has vanished.

Very nice

Here is my "deep thought"for today, though it is not as deep and involved as yours it will still make you think a little

The following statement is true.
The above statement is false.

(hehe, figure that one out, I have for years)

Ive found that most deep things have to do with females. Ive noticed that they seem more patient in there thoughts then we men. But yet thinking of girls would then make me a smarter person.

My delema has been for the last 3 weaks between my two girlfriends. Girlfriend A is a chearleader. She is hot but not amazing. I have been in love with her for about a year. The problem she doesn't like me in the way I like her.
Girl B likes me. I find her very attractive but well not in a long relationship way but more of a 15 min at a time way.
This winter i asked girl a to go to prom with me. She agreed but I have found from consitant pondering that she wants to stay as great friends...ouch...Girl B on the other hand wanted me to go with her. I found this out days after asking girl a. Girl a was very happy to go with me by the way. I became somewhat "active" with girl b and that makes things difficult. Suddenly girl a gets very mad..The point is if girl a doesn't like me then why does she get pissed. She gets over it and 2 weeks later this friday. I made the mistake of leting girl b get on my. I tried to fight it I really did. But girl a finds out a chops off my penis. With her mind anyway. I make up with girl a who questioned going to prom still.

Main point...Should I just say screw it and stick girl b and be happy or continue chasing girl a. The greatest and deapest question of our day. unless your my friends who just say..Yeah get on her. Get some action....Have fun

It is a never ending loop. One will always lead back to the other

Because some people walk up to the ATM, instead of drive

I guess it depends on if they have been blind their hole life or have been able to see at one time. Im sure they can form images in their mind.

Yea, but they don't build ATMs specifically for drive up or walk in. They build one kind of machine and you decide where to put it. Another reason for brail could be for farsighted people. They can see to drive but might not be able to read the numbers.
