Reason... Season... Lifetime...

A friend from my high school days led me to this inspirational writing. **Thanks Vicki** While it didn't change my situation - it certainly helped changed my perspective on things and, in time, help me move forward.

Moving forward is the greatest challenge many people face after any loss... Whether Love, career, life.

There's often a reason for it that will materialize in the future. Maybe you were meant to learn a lesson in those roles and you‘ve learned it. Maybe you were meant to meet someone (a future client, a new friend or a future soul mate) and you've met them so it's time to move on. Or maybe you were meant to help someone -and having fulfilled your duty it's time to move on. You won't know the reason until years later - or never at all. So just accept the decision and accept that there may be a grander plan being played out... and move on.

When dealing with any kind of loss we know that time is a great healer. And with time, people who have lost (jobs, friends, family) often come to realize that what once seemed like a disaster, in fact happened for a reason. And that quite often, redundancy was not a set back, but the start of a brand new season..


The short story I am referring to:

A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realise is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON . . .
Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount
of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the
person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Is the following writing of interest ??

We, the People, have been lead to believe that every person must pay an income tax. Claims that there is no law that establishes liability for an individual income tax have been made for years. Nevertheless, the courts have repeatedly ruled indictments for income tax prosecutions are valid with United States v Vroman, 975 F2d 669 (9th. Cir. 1992) being a prominent example.

A challenge to the indictment can be made for failure to allege a crime. Such a Motion has been formatted as a Motion to Dismiss the Indictment based upon an analysis of the Vroman opinion with an adaptation for an ongoing Section 7206 prosecution (adaptable to other prosecutions). The conclusions of the Vroman court are proven to be spurious and do not concur with Supreme Court adjudication for Due Process, a Case, or the requirements for a valid indictment. Direct inconsistencies with Supreme court opinions is fertile area for SC review. An appeal is only to review errors of law that are made ON THE RECORD.

Constitutional rights are only available to a belligerent claimant. If an individual does not demand his Rights, the courts have no requirement to acknowledge them, and lawyers are not required to assert your Constitutional rights. It is the courts that are perverting Due Process to enforce a tax that does not exist, and they intimidate lawyers .

Your constitutional right to make a living, enshrined within the clause of Liberty, is not an acceptable object for taxation. A tax cannot be levied upon your right to a trial by jury; neither can a tax be levied upon your right to pursue a livelihood as secured by the clause of Liberty.

If Congress can properly levy a tax upon your livelihood, they can confiscate 100 percent of your earnings and you are reduced to abject peonage. The Constitutional structure of We the People establishing a government of servants has suffered a coup de grace.
