"Get Better Advice"
☞ I am a researcher, writer, and designer for consumer, citizen, and seeker advocacy. I can improve your life, by giving you better advice.
☞ I combine my unique understanding of the wisdom of the greatest thinkers, with an unusual level of motivation and discipline, to gather more experience and research, plus I do not seek nor am I influenced by any money, which equals better advice.
☞ Do you think significant things happened before 1800 AD or think it is ridiculous to blame all problems in the world on white male Christians? For those who want to study beyond the very limited information we get about other cultures and time periods in public school in the United States, the following resources will give you a place to start.
"Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day."
Always ↺Reload or Refresh each of my pages, when ⬅Returning to any part, of any of my websites, after your first visit, as I ⚙Update my websites very frequently (often multiple times a day).
Unfortunately, web browsers save the version of the webpage, as it was, when you first visited it, and shows this this ♲Old version to you, upon every following visit, until you hit ↺Reload or Refresh.
Also remember, to 🔖Bookmark my website, right now, as you might find it hard, to 🔎Find my website again.
Unfortunately, computers in general and 🔎Search engines, in particular, are not as capable, as they seem, which means that my website cannot be reliably found, if you are depending on Google or Bing.
No one can get their website reliably featured on Google, for appropriate search terms, no matter how much they pay, or how big a brand they have.
Google constantly changes and will never release the criteria they use, to determine who get featured first, on the search results, for a given set of keywords.
Even typing in the name of my website, in your location/search bar, without the exact syntax, will give you unpredictable results.
You can add my website, as an icon, on your Apple mobile device (iPad, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone, or iPod Touch only), with all your app icons, like just another app.
Click on the first icon to the left of the address bar on your Apple device, where you add bookmarks, and choose "Add to Home Screen."
☞ These websites all serve different purposes or audiences, but all share one thing in common: they are all created by me and are about me and my mission/ministry. I am the webmaster, so that I not only create everything on these websites, but also have designed and done all the technical things, to make this site work well, on a wide range of the most popular devices.
☞ I have worked on all this for 16 years now, while understanding that I would never make any money off of it, as my niche is too small.
☞ Most problems we encounter, in the world, these days are solved by highly intelligent people, in elite teams. But the most difficult problems have to be solved by you, as an individual, often times without any outside help. The most difficult problems do not have answers: the solution is to manage the problems and not let them control you. These are the problems I deal with, on this website and in my own life. These are also the kind of problems our current world has to deal with, as well. Nothing less than divine intervention will save us; for the biggest problems, we need to enlist the grace of God.

☞ I have spent a decade and a half studying the major world religions and world history, to try to find a way to explain who I am in a way that is both accurate and understandable to the lay person. The technical terms would be my unique philosophy combining Philosophical Taoism and Christian Existentialism, in order to find a way to understand the Bible better within its Asian and mystical traditions. I found along the way that Christianity first caught on in what is now occupied by Islamic fundamentalists, from North Africa and East Africa to Iran and Central Asia and has surprisingly close connections to Islam, in almost all of its practices and worldview.
☞ I am now able to explain who I am in a few simple words. First of all I am very religious, I am very literal, I have Schizophrenia, and I have extremely bad luck. To deal with these challenges, I have leveraged my creativity, my attention to detail, and my inability to give up on anything, to live a happy life. I took many risks, when I joined the military, and came out of that miraculously well. I now choose to live a very carefully thought out life and take as few risks as possible. (more on me)
☞ In my designs and my writing, I aim to be as clear, concise, and direct as possible, while still being polite. Do not assume that because I use simple words, to explain the ideas, that I talk about, that my writing is easy to understand. This site is based on philosophy, so there is little challenge in the vocabulary, but it requires you to think, to understand.
☞ Our society tries very hard, to get us to not think, so it is not easy for most people. If you want to have purpose and meaning, in your life, it will require a tremendous amount of time, effort, and discipline. There are no shortcuts, to peace and happiness. You may not be able to change the world, but you can change the way you think and the decisions you make. You may be in a very bad situation, but no matter where you are, you can always improve your situation, by making good choices. (more on my missions)
☞ I also aim to make the website and writing beautiful, but also responsive to the user in a fast and fluid manner, at the same time. I use bright colors, as those cheer me up, as I get depressed easily. I also color code many of my website elements, to make them easier to understand. My overall goal in the design is to re-enforce the messages in my writing. (more on design)
