Condensing Infinity

Mike’s Common Sense Man’s view of God really hasn’t changed much in the last 4,000 years. Even today, most people’s conception of God resembles Michelangelo’s famous depiction on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City. There is God, often depicted as a gray-haired, bearded old man, and there is Man, created by God, but separate and distinct from God. This sense of being separated from God has… Read More »Condensing Infinity

Keep It Simple

Mike’s Common Sense How neat would it be if we could change the world by everyone learning to follow two simple rules? That’s right; if we could learn two simple rules, and teach them to our children, we can change the world. Sound crazy? Maybe, but I am going to try to show how. Richard Mayberry, in his book “Whatever Happened To Justice?”, gives us two basic laws:1) Do everything you have agreed to… Read More »Keep It Simple

Mike’s Health Cocktail (Improved)

Mike’s Common Sense Many people today are looking for ways to improve their overall health without the use of prescription drugs. Most prescription drugs have many side effects that may cause more problems than they help. Most prescription drugs do not really cure health problems as much as they just hide symptoms of poor health. Most of the food we eat does not have the minerals and nutrients our bodies… Read More »Mike’s Health Cocktail (Improved)

A Lot Of Bad People

Mike’s Common Sense A lot of bad people, have been doing a lot of bad things for a lot of years. How do you get away with this for so many years? You make sure the heads of Law enforcement, DOJ, FBI, Judges, Prosecutors are bad people like you. (On the same corruption train). This is what has been going on for many decades, Bad cops, Judges etc. protecting bad… Read More »A Lot Of Bad People

Beating the Blues

Mike’s Common SenseMany people these days are struggling with depression in one form or another. This depression is often compounded in the winter time when there is less sunshine. Many people seek relief using prescription anti-depressants; and others seek it with alcohol, and other recreational drugs. Most people who are taking antidepressants, and recreational drugs do not need to medicate themselves to feel better. Most people can find a way… Read More »Beating the Blues

Nonviolent Communication

Mike’s Common Sense I am troubled by the hostility I encounter every day. It does not bother me that people are vehement about their beliefs, but rather the way they communicate them to others. The politicians, the editorials, the news channels, the evangelists, even bloggers, don’t know how to get their point across without insulting their opposition. The point of communication is to convey your thoughts, your beliefs, your needs… Read More »Nonviolent Communication

Are You Man Enough?

Mike’s Common Sense I grew up with two brothers. One was older than me, the other younger. We were all separated by one year intervals, so we grew up fairly close in age. This, of course, meant that we fought…a lot. Being the middle son, it seems that I was always in the middle of one of the fights. My older, and my younger, brothers seldom fought amongst each other.… Read More »Are You Man Enough?

Santa Redneck Is Coming To Town

Mike’s Common Sense Christmas comes early each year to our normally quiet community here in Homestead, Florida. Santa’s come by the droves, not in sleighs, but in RVs, and campers, and pick-up trucks. They come here each year to watch the last NASCAR race of the year; the one that decides the NASCAR champion, The Homestead-Miami Ford 400. These Santa’s, don’t come with a bag of presents, but with pockets… Read More »Santa Redneck Is Coming To Town


Mike’s Common Sense This world is a very complex place. In spite of this complexity, there is one thing that everything has in common; everything has an opposite. This is a world of duality. This means that nothing in it exists, without it’s opposite. There is no cause, without effect; no light without dark; no good, without bad. There is no spiritual, without animal; no giving, without taking; no hardness,… Read More »Duality

Lights In the Darkness

Mike’s Common Sense We are beings of light. Each one of us is the prodigal child of God sent into the spiritual-material worlds for schooling. Many of us have been going to this school for 100,000 years or more. Now 100,000 years may seem like a lot, and it is, but in relation to eternity it is but a small drop in the bucket. Because we are beings of light… Read More »Lights In the Darkness
