Progressing through life.


Progressing through life requires that you use your instincts as a guiding force for survival.

You survive the worst that life has to offer living life in the moment one day at a time.

Your living, the daily work performed by you, occurs moment by moment with a life plan in place to give you direction.

One of my greatest joys has been the journey each and every one of us must travel.

In the discovery of joy along the way is the best part of the journey.

Our dental team talks from time to time of the dental hospital in KC we planned to implement in other parts of the world as an extension of services we provide locally.

Joy has come from the excitement in not always knowing or having all the answers to the problems of life.

As long as you continue to plot your course, basic instincts keep you moving in the right direction.

A movie, “Book Of Eli,” made a strong case for this point.

Eli, a modern day prophet, was entrusted with taking the last Bible to a source that would respect its


Mankind over the years had become so wicked Bibles had been destroyed, all but one.

Eli had taken the time to learn every word of the King James edition, becoming a living instrument and protector of the Bible.

After the physical book had been taken from him, Eli found a way to still get it to an authority figure, quoting it word for word in its entirety for republication.

The Bible represented light in the darkness that had befallen the world, post nuclear holocaust.

Eli used his instincts as he went about his journey.

Your journey will be made shorter understanding you don’t have to go it alone.

Decide to appreciate the flowers you encounter along the way.

There’s something about a wilderness journey where a red rose paints winter’s backdrop.

The thought places a smile in your heart.

In the midst of man’s darkest hours beauty has a way of finding those who seek its solace.

We all must appreciate the good times found during our storms.

A simple candle lit to illuminate your way is indeed warmth to the soul of man.

We find ourselves able to stay the course walking out of darkness into light.

Wherever there is true enlightenment, first there was light.

Progressing through life with a well lit path will keep you moving in the right direction.
