The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you found out why.  It was Mark Twain who gave us this simple yet profound quote. It has more meaning to me today than it did yesterday.  I am in the midst of a earth-shaking revival of sorts and it’s sole purpose is to breathe righteousness into the divinity of my soul.

Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing to do.  But to hold it together when everyone else  would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.

When a man falls to his knee’s in suffering he has no choice but to clinch his hands in the sacred deed of prayer.  The sound of suffering is alliterative to the sanctity of salvation.   You see at the end of the day there isn’t enough in your mind, or heart for that matter, for both worry and faith.  It is up to you to decide which one will live there. We must be fearless in the pursuit of whatever it is that set’s our soul on fire.

Have you ever felt your spirit arising from an outraged sense of morality? If so, then you in fact, felt a righteous indignation that swims in eternal spirit.

Have you ever sensed some sort of moral restoration that carried you towards the hallowed sense of a spiritual reawakening? Then it is you, as well as me, that has bared witness to the momentum of a righteous revival…

Could it be manifesting itself within you as you read these words?

The soul has a weird way of rearranging itself, sometimes the Scripture of morality nestles itself inside our hollow thoughts.

So about that Mark Twain guy.  Well, you know as well as I do, that he had an “unabandoned” ability to sing the Gospel through his simplistic words.  These words spoke volumes then and even more so now.  I have often been reminded of the lineage of Mr. Clemens within our family tree.  Does the metaphor of “pollination” in the essence of creativity make sense now? More than it did? Somewhere yonder in that Creative Outpost might we have stumbled upon a gift, given to us by Mother Nature herself?  We will touch more on this down the road.

You see Mr. Twain’s quote about the two most important days of your life being the day you were born and the day you find out why, are critical to in the discovery of our calling.  And once you realize this calling, it could very well shake the foundation of everything you have built up until this point in your life.  All in all, most everything we have is typically in the form of an artificial fashion.  If it’s something that carries a noteworthy weight and kindles the passion inside of you then its probably worth keeping.  Most everything in life is replaceable except for true love, truth, and freedom.  So long as we tend to let these pristine possessions stabilize us in our moments of weakness, our moral compass will guide us towards our calling.  When that moment of clarity strikes; the morning sun shines with a vibrant effervescence.  There is a pleasance to the crisp air that settles the senses and allows our creativity room to breathe.  It signifies that something spectacular awaits down the path we choose to take.  It no longer let’s us fall backwards or stumble upon the fractured feelings simmering in the our past failures. It’s quite astonishing the inner mechanisms that we are built with, which subconsciously point us in the direction of a better day.



My roots are buried in the Dirty South. I grew up learning the importance of God and Southern Charm. I began writing in my late teens mostly through heartbreak and music. I moved out west 15 years ago and live right around the corner from the Fountain Of Youth. Most people refer to it as Lake Tahoe. I play Chef during the day and search for ways to save the world by night, through reading, writing, and believing. I enjoy the side of life that is less abrasive. I look forward to joining you on my quest through Spiritual Sobriety with the Promised Land as our ultimate destination.
