Cullers War Book By Raymond BurtonWelcome To The Fans Only Cullers War Monthly Pulp Fiction Free Read.

The Barrens is a vicious post-apocalyptic wasteland where battles rage between Union Forces and a mutant Hoard army. It’s a dystopian world where you must choose between the safety and rules of living inside the wall, or the danger and chaos of the freedom outside.

Sgt Culler and his wife live inside. They gladly signed the Union loan papers, took the money and now can’t pay it off. The dollars are gone, the business a bust, and it’s time to pay back the debt with blood.

Thoughts On Self-Reliance Optimism Trust and Self-Confidence

self-reliance and my thoughts on emerson
Excerpts and thoughts on self-reliance and what they mean to me. Starting with Emerson and adding as I go. As I read and re-read different essays and passages from the past, I will edit them and makes notes on what affects me most. You can sense the great messages in writing from the past, yet some of it gets lost in the older language used. As I go through this and understand the deep messages, I’ll put them into easier to understand vocabulary.

Trust Yourself

Genius is belief in your own thought. Belief that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all people. Speak and follow what your gut is telling you instead of going with the flow. We call Moses, Plato and Milton great people because they wrote what we all think. Not what we all say. Learn to trust your intuition and flashes of mind more than the voices of authority washed in public opinion.

Your Life As A Song

Carlos Castaneda Thinking Your Life Is A SongWarning: Alternative Thought Ahead – I am reading Carlos Castaneda’s “The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge“ in the backyard. Its 4:10 in the afternoon and the sun is about to go behind the big poplar tree by the back fence. The breeze and temperature are perfect thanks to the wonderful Canadian summer climate.

My girlfriend is asleep for an afternoon nap. We both are getting a little tired on our herbal cleanse. I got up about half an hour ago.

Life comes in moments.

In this moment reading page 110 of Castanedas book, I realize I am really just a part of the universe’s big musical production. We are little songs.

All the goals we chase in life and all the things we pursue – have happiness as the seed of inception. These summary notes are the thoughts generated by reading books, listening to audio’s and putting one foot in front of the other.

Sitting on the side of a mountain, a boy and his father were on a bowhunting trip when a scene unfolded in the valley below.
The father pointed, “Do you see the wolves eating the deer from the rear up?
The boy watched fighting the desire to pull his eyes away, “Yes.”
“Do you know why they do that?”
“No, dad.”
“Do you think it is to let him enjoy life a little longer before they have to kill him? Maybe because they are sorry they are killing him?”
The boy watched the deer’s hind quarters crumble under it’s own weight.
“I don’t know,” the boy said looking away.
The father lit a cigarette, “They are keeping him barely alive so the meat stays fresh longer.”
The boy crunched his eyebrows and looked at his dad, “Is that why the factory gives us the weekends off?”
