The TV Shows That Keep Us Off the Streets

This life that we're living is consequential only to the matter that we make it so. The meaning that you give to this existence of yours isn't something you've earned but rather a free gift. You don't put life in your lungs and feelings in your heart. They are there and you can't explain them. If you want to have meaning, any meaning at all, you have to do something that is worth being alive for.

I hear so many people say things like, "you only live once." This isn't true. What they should really say and what is more accurate is, "you only live in these bodies once." Your soul has a body. And what you do with your life matters.

We watch television shows in order for us to experience something we aren't able to experience in this world. We want excitement in our lives, but we want that excitement to be safe and non-threatening. TV shows like Dexter and Breaking bad allow us to fantasize about what it would be like to live a lifestyle where guns rule and anything goes and there is no consequence.

What I'm asking you to do is live a life where your life is threatened. Where you aren't safe. And where you depend on God to choose to keep you alive or take your life. The safer you are the more you can be assured that you won't have any meaning in your life. love. war.

Things to think about:
-Is protecting yourself the most important thing to do
-Does Romney really have the power to change America
-Is eating organic food really what matters
-Do you have nothing to do if your internet goes out
