Our "trouble is" that we have established bad thought habits.

I, Don Wesley, found these words and more of them, already written back in 1948.

I wanted to learn more about my father "Zachary"

"Our trouble is that we have established bad thought habits. We habitually think of the visible world as real and doubt the reality of any other. We do not deny the existence of the spiritual world but we doubt that it is real in the accepted meaning of the word.
The world of sense intrudes upon our attention day and night for the whole of our lifetime. It is clamorous, insistent and self-demonstrating. It does not appeal to our faith; it is here, assaulting our five senses, demanding to be accepted as real and final. But sin has so clouded the lenses of our hearts that we cannot see that other reality, the City of God, shining around us. The world of sense triumphs. The visible becomes the enemy of the invisible, temporal of the eternal. That is the curse inherited by every member of Adam’s tragic race.
At the root of the Christian life lies the belief in the invisible. The object of the Christian life is the unseen reality.
Our uncorrected thinking, influenced by the blindness of our natural hearts and the intrusive ubiquity of visible things, tends to draw a contrast between the spiritual and the real; but actually no such contrast exists. The antithesis lies elsewhere: between the real and the imaginary, between the spiritual and the material, between the temporal and the eternal; but between the spiritual and the real never. The spiritual is real.
If we would rise into the region of light and power plainly beckoning us through the Scriptures of truth we must break the evil habit of ignoring the spiritual. We must shift our interest from the seen to the unseen. For the great unseen Reality is God.”

There is more that is already written: I will deliver them, like a good messenger in another bag and into this safe blog.

The lethality of loneliness (John Cacioppo at TED)

This is really a great lesson of the many reasons not be lonely.
The good new is, we can get comfy by knowing God.

Too many suffer. ?
