Portals Into the Past

I still don’t understand how a single picture, it can bring back so many memories. It’s such an odd thing. It’s almost like we forget we still have these memories locked away in our unconscious minds. We go on with our lives like it never happened and BAM, you go through an old picture album,…

Unsolved Dreams

Most of the time, when I start writing these posts, I usually have a problem in mind I want to solve and I usually have a general idea of an answer. If not, I’m still, usually, able to conclude some sort of answer by the end. This time, I have a question which I have…

The Best You Can Do: A Lesson From Tantric Buddhism

I want to talk about something that’s definitely going to get some differing opinions of those on the Christianity side, but has been on the forefront of my mind for quite a bit of time, as of recently. What is it? Tantric Buddhism. Now, I’m sure I’m going to get some things wrongs, especially if…

Let’s Talk About Libido

Jungian and Freudian psychology, at first glance, may seem similar in nature. This is due to the fact that both Jung and Freud considered repressed libido as the sole cause of a neurosis (mental disease) in an individual. But, like I said, this is only at first glance. Like most things, the devils in the details, and…

A Man’s Search for Meaning

I mentioned in a post on my analysis of “Notes from Underground”, that there are few books, if any at all, that have fundamentally changed my life. Although I described Notes from Underground as one of these books that did so, it seems odd to not regard this book, A Man’s Search for Meaning, as a book of that…

Although, I think I understood the message being portrayed in the story, I personally wouldn’t recommend it as a casual read. It’s definitely something, if you’re just looking for a good story, to avoid. Nevertheless, I still want to give my…

Notes from Underground

There are few books in my life, maybe even none at all, that I can truly say they changed my life after reading them. I know that’s such a cliche thing to say, as, it’s cliche to say things like “this book changed my life”, but after reading Notes from Underground, by Dostoevsky, and it’s…

Misguided Virtue

This will be a controversial post. I can already tell. And, that’s not because I intend for it to be that way, but simply, I want to touch on a topic that has been bothering me for quite awhile, and, after some time, finally been able to get a more tangible answer I could articulate.…

How I Transcended Reality (objectively speaking)

The past few weeks, something strange has been happening to me. I was hesitant to even speak about this, at first, because, in the beginning, and even now, I’m not sure what is going on, and the only way to describe this phenomena is, I transcended reality. Now, before you dismiss me as some crazy,…

How to Fight Contempt.

They say, other than infidelity, that one of the most common, if not the most common reason of divorce has some sort of financial under-pinning to it, AKA money problems. If you or your spouse don’t know how to properly manage each others money, not to mention, as a single entity, a couple, then it’s…
