I recently had opportunity to look back and study the past year of my life. Where I started as well as where I am going. Doing so I came to a few realizations. I think the most shocking of these would be that I have spent very little time working on my spiritual life. This is what I thought at least. It has been almost a year since Excommunicate’s relaunch and in that time traffic has nearly tripled. I left my day job and became fully self-employed. Amongst my jobs is my time to this site. That’s when it hit me. I may not have been practicing daily meditation but there is one skill I have greatly improved.

Today’s youthful generation lives in an apathetic fog. They are too preoccupied with modern conveniences. Those that do care seldom do more than complain. It has always been this way to some extent. The great few have power over the many. What can really be blamed though for this stand by and let it happen attitude? Few will even help if someone falls and hurts themselves, for fear of a lawsuit or even worse they might have to get involved. What is it that we are exposed to that could create such a lack luster youth.
From the moment we are all born we are told we are special, and that good things come to those who wait. Where did these ideas come from?
