    Oct 5 2012: I once rented an apartment to a former tarot card reader. He told me his story:
    He had been reading the cards for quite some time with great success when he saw the death of his best friend. The cards told him when, but not how. He tried, but was unable to determine how his friend would die. When he got word that his friend was dead, he seriously began to consider the cards - had he ever seen anything that was of value to him, and could he have changed anything if he wanted to? He was unable to find a single time in which reading the cards had provided anything good. He then began to think: what if he should see his own death - how would this affect him? The more he thought about it, the more he became convinced that the cards were evil. He burned them, never to read them again. He said he has been a lot happier since.

    My former roommate saw the death of my first wife nearly four years before I met her. At the time, I didn't believe in fortune telling. After her death, I realized that she had brought many blessings to my life. Had I believed my former roommate at the start, I may have chosen not to marry her and lost out on what I gained.

    We are seeing all sorts of predictions of impending doom in the media concerning revelation, Nostradamus, and the end of the Mayan calendar. The problem with such predictions is that they don't provide specifics that will offer any relief from the anxiety that people feel. Nor do they provide a vision for where you fit in.
    I have determined that the end of the Mayan calendar has nothing to do with the end of the world prophesy, and that such prophesy deals with transitions and not ends as we know the term.

    As far as God is concerned, I do not believe in a God as religion supports, but do believe in God through personal spiritual experience. What God revealed to me has undermined much of what religion taught me. I feel I have a guide that leads me to know what I need to know. The rest I leave to faith.
