    I'm at a point in life where seemingly I am running out of steam. I am neither happy nor sad I am simply living to the best of my ability helping people according to their individual needs. I am servant in every sense of the word, but I am tired. I used to possess tremendous drive at learning about intellect and spirituality. However, I find my thirst for new elements of understanding is nothing more than a fossilized remnant of a flourishing life.

    Maybe there is nothing more for me because I have all that is offered to me .

    When is the last time you remember a non-fossilized thirsting for new elements?

    Wouldn't it be nice if when we were done with our intellect we could just give it all.to another.

    Psalm 131 King James Version (KJV)
    Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

    Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

    Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and for ever.

    Lead Kingly Light

    Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom,
    Lead thou me on;
    The night is dark, and I am far from home;
    Lead thou me on;
    Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see
    The distant scene: one step enough for me.

    I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou
    Shouldst lead me on;
    I loved to choose, and see my path; but now
    Lead thou me on.
    I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
    Pride ruled my will: remember not past years.

    So long thy power hath blest me, sure it still
    Will lead me on,
    O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, till
    The night is gone,
    And with the morn those angel faces smile,
    Which I have loved long since, and lost a while.
