Eight Ball Answers ~ Cannot Predict Now

Greetings Dear Reader,

In many ways we make choices, decisions, and the like without all the information.  Sometimes we are in a hurry or sometimes the information is not available.  We sometimes have to make choices against the pressure of time and must do so without full assurance that we are correct.

Life is one of constant choices.  Some of them become automated by habit or the dictates of others to which we agree.  At times we limit our choices through the consequences of previous choices. 

In any situation when faced with choices we try to predict the outcome.  We hope that we come out favorably even when the situation is grim and the odds are against us.  Our nature is to sometimes deny the truth before to avoid the logical choice.  We will seek the prediction of others to shade things in our favor. 

It is true that in a multitude of counselors there is safety.  It is also true that when seeking counsel we sometimes hope to diminish our responsibility of our choices.   When Gildor the Elf is speaking to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring he puts it best;  “Elves seldom give unguarded advice, for advice is a dangerous gift, even from the wise to the wise, and all courses may run ill.”

I always want to predict what will happen.  I always want it to be good and positive.  I am often wrong.  I am not a prophet.  I am a mere scribe.  I delve into this space to better guard my journey and my faith.  I do not offer you predictions or advice Dear Reader.  Rather, I hope that you can benefit from my blessings and learn from my failures. 

Wishing you joy in the journey,
