8:30 P.m.

Times have taken a turn for the better. Many issues that have resonated through my thoughts and been muffled by reality have been moderately quieted. I am plagued no longer.

Or this is something I had thought. Time heals all wounds they say, but the dosage is one prescribed by time itself.

Time spent in relapse- away from the source of pain, the source of internal contention. While easily done by copious amounts of tolerance and control of one’s self, the cracks eventually emulate through what was a secure environment, and the issue floods back in like the unwavering tide.

Now I sit, writing. I’m telling you how much I miss these nights. Now I am bound to this chair, a pathetic attempt to rid my mind onto a heartless liquid crystal. It is awkward, in the same way a man of law cannot represent himself.

If it is to be, it will. This truth is only revealed when dosage has come full swing, yet prescription is derived from limited supply. What time is spent now could otherwise be allotted towards inefficient thoughts and could feed a circular imagination.

In a life so full there is one thing there that is evident of many which are not. The amount of what’s missing is not quantified instantly, and may never be.  Knowledge of this only comes through the deepest reflection. Conveniently, even the most murky will tell you something.

It tells of something which is believed to be absent to actually be present in abundance, but it’s utilization has not developed to a beneficial degree.

Here’s what I’m trying to say. Instead of trying to sound so high up, I will speak as if you Are my friend.

Do they really like attention so much as they are willing and unknowingly messing with one’s head for their gain? I would imagine not, but the human mind- woman’s mind- has become something for me not to evaluate as if I understand it fully.

one reason I may not understand it is simply because what i see if not so. I see an uncanny relationship in very similar terms. Mental, physical. We value things of similar nature. I believe what I hold most dear is the intelligence. The education discovered outside of the class. It is hard to find, and even when it is, it typically an undeveloped asset.

It’s interesting. For the amount of time I spend thinking of this, I don’t think a single one of those thoughts can effectively be put on this. It is…. unfair? Maybe not, maybe what happens is best kept in the head, in the mind. 

Here is the main contention, from what I believe. I see things others don’t. Not to my benefit necessarily, but it is a good reason why a man like me who has been so unsatisfied and not graced with certain.. memories… is still able to see more than those who do- or have.

One who plans for the rest of now see the good in today. If there is something which will benefit him greatly, he will stop at nothing to have it.

What is nothing, though? We have been shown what extent some men go through for noble chases such as what I hope this would be. It is not to blamed to unoriginality, but to lack of impulse and a heavy shot of what is… reality.

I believe I have been blessed to understand the importance of time. I have foolishly tried to accelerate things which are best grown over proper times. I am not, however, too blind to understand things have a time and a place, and some are best planted when believed to, rather than when is accepted.

As of May 23rd, the Boy Scouts of America voted with a 60% favor to end the ban on admitting openly gay scouts into the organization. This action has be acclaimed by some as a move forward for Scouting, allowing the benefits of the program to reach all boys- regardless of how they identify themselves, which has never been a factor in any teaching of scouting.
There has also been plenty of opposition and criticism from others about how the BSA is making a move that will “Devastate Scouting” , as John Stemberger says. When delving more into why some feel this way, it is best to read what he says on his website Onmyhonor.net. To summarize his view on the subject, he concludes that this move has taught boys that once your values become unpopular, you should turn around and edit them to suit those sitting in the White House.
It is seen as the BSA is abandoning “its mission to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices” by lifting the ban. The first moment a Scout leaves the group with any soiled values directly relating to this ban being lifted should be brought to the attention of the Council immediately; however, it is impossible for this to ever happen.
The only reason why this ban exists in the first place is simply because of money. Funding. How the BSA continues to operate. Over 70% of scouting groups are funded by religious groups who wish to see this ban still exist (The morality of religious hate on gays is a topic not to be discussed here). As Stemberger also states on the website, this vote is going against what Robert Baden-Powell intended. This is false- Scouting began unintentionally and after its formal introduction, no note on this sort of ban was identified. The handbook Baden-Powell first drafted was for soldiers, and it found it’s way into the hands of young boys. This group eventually grew into the organization that is under fire today. The history of the movement has an interesting note on the Wikipedia site: “Another widely recognized movement characteristic is the Scout uniform, by intent hiding all differences of social standing in a country and making for equality” -no intention for any discrimination on the basis on orientation.
In 2013 America there is a movement towards a society void of judgment and unfairness. Every school district is taking immense measures to prevent bullying or any discrimination of any kind. Most notably is the suicide of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi. A story of a student who was bullied for his sexual orientation- ending his life by jumping from a bridge. Those who directly participated in the, what many wish to call it, hate crime have been indicted in court. It was a almost universal view held by many- this sort on unwarranted hate should be punishable by law.
Where is the line drawn here: Why, in this scenario, is discrimination based on sexual orientation seen as punishable by many, when some of those same people are seen berating the BSA for lifting the ban? Who is to say that some young scout may kill himself because he can’t get to Eagle, and enjoy all of the fun times and gain all of the benefits from scouting? What will be said then?

The Heliodorus pillar is a stone column that was erected around 110 BCE in central India in Vidisha near modern Besnagar, by Heliodorus, a Greek ambassador of the Indo-Greek king Antialcidas to the court of the Sunga king Bhagabhadra.

The pillar was surmounted by a sculpture of Garuda and was apparently dedicated by Heliodorus to the god Vasudeva in front of the temple of Vasudeva.

There are two inscriptions on the pillar, the first inscription describes in Brahmi the situation of Heliodorus and his relationship to the Sunga and Indo-Greek kings. The second inscription on the pillar describes in more detail the spiritual content of the faith supported by Heliodorus:

“Three immortal precepts (footsteps)… when practiced lead to heaven: self-restraint, charity, consciousness”
