“…The ‘most complex’ of problems, often times, are solved with the ‘simplest of solutions’…”

The “original”…the one and only. Well, this is very likely not the case; and will NEVER be the case. The “original”…original what? The original me… the original you… the original this… or that. Every day, I sit at my lap top, as I am now doing… this very minute…thinking. That which I’m writing about is “an original.” Meaning… no one has ever written about it before…again, not likely. It has been said that there is nothing original anymore. I guess, though, that Steve Jobs could argue that point… i.e. ….the Apple-watch. But wait… didn’t “Dick Tracey” have one of those… so “it” can’t be original… can it?

Realistically speaking… I’m talking about the subject matter… “Original.” The word original implies that “it’s the first of its kind.” Or, the first time EVER. So, that would mean that “no one” has ever written about being “original” before… in all of history.

In other words… I can’t come up with a “single new subject” matter to write about… that someone else hasn’t already written about. As hard as I try, I just can’t be very original. Sure… I try to give a “different slant” on an old subject. I try to make my perspective sound and smell original… but we all know it’s not.

Go back, if you at all interested, and look at the last 1000 subjects that I’ve written about in the last 1000 days, and find one… just one… subject that is “an original.” I doubt that you’ll find a single one. No… I’ll tell you, though, what’s different about what I write about.

I’m the WRITER, and you’re the READER.

That, my friend, and “only that,” is the only thing original about what I write about. As famous game show host  (The Gong Show) Chuck Barris is noted for saying…“It’s just you and me babe.” Never before have I written about this subject… “Original,” and NEVER before have you ever read what I’m writing about.

So… there you have it… “Together…we’re original.”

Almost every subject about which I write has a “plus” and a corresponding “minus.” The MINUS represents a “problem,” and wherever there is a problem, there is a potential PROFIT. In my daily “postings,” I write about the “problems,” and try to offer a perspective that, when properly applied, will lead to a SOLUTION, or shall we say…a PROFIT. And since, this is the first time I’ve written about “it,” and it’s also the first time you’ve ever read what I’m writing…then, maybe… just maybe, you’ve not come across the SOLUTION that I offer.

All of my SOLUTIONS are “God Based.” I bring the “God perspective,” into the SOLUTION, because 9 out of 10 times, if not… 10 out of 10… God is the ONLY SOLUTION.

The “most complex” of problems, often times, are solved with the “simplest of solutions.” While God is not “remotely simple,”… what He represents is. God represents LOVE, JOY, WISDOM, and GIVING. All of “these” are SPECIAL GIFTS that “only God” can give us. These “gifts” are simple (easy) to give and easy to receive.

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

All that God asks for in return… is also SIMPLE. He asks that we LOVE him…to believe in Him… that He died on the Cross for our sins, so that we might have “life-ever-lasting” with Him. He asks that we “repent of our SINS,” and that we “try very hard” to live according to His will. If we really LOVE Him, believe in Him, than this is a pretty SIMPLE task.

Remember this: Every single soul that God created is “uniquely special”…. And, I might add… UNIQUELY ORIGINALLY. And… that would be “you…and me.” …Blessings…cjlb… 12/27/15.
