Independence... from what?

First of all, Happy 4th of July to fellow Americans.

Since it is a holiday in the land of my birth, I am taking the easy way out and wishing you all a happy party time.  

On this persistent day of national pride, I am asking you to ponder a few things.

How did we get here (wherever here may be)?

Did I harm anyone to get where I am?

Am I as independent as I want to be?

If I believe I am a slave, have I become one by my own mindstate?

Can I change anything in the world for the better?

Can I make the world an easier place to live in?

Am I free to be who I am, who I want to be?

To all I say: follow your dreams, your truth, your unwavering, undying, unending vision of what might be and seek to make it reality while harming no one else.
Set yourself free of the ideas and repetitive phrases that program you to stay stuck where you are and prevent forward progress.

On this Independence day, find the freedom from limiting thoughts and behaviors, be bold, be fearless, be free to fail or succeed.  

Be free to be.  

Peace.  Truth.

Nothings Shocking Now: An Electrical Primer (Part 1)

Electricity seems to many people some great mystery who go through life  happily flipping switches and expecting the lights to come on, and feeling helpless when they do not, feeling betrayed by every ideal of technological persistence and reliability.  I promise it is neither mystery nor given right.  It is science, tried, tested, and true.  Electricity powers our lives- its good to have some basic knowledge about it. These basics, what electricity is, how to determine the type of fault, and what can be done about it, are all basic skills that I can pass in fairly directly over the course of a few articles.
