Do you know why I chose the title I chose? It’s from a book by Aldous Huxley called Island. It was one of his last works, if not his last, that he wrote before he died. Although not considered his most well-known books, it is widely considered one of his most important, as it was, indeed, written…Read More

Horus and Jesus Christ: A Transformation Story.
I don’t know if anyone actually closely follows my blog, but if you do, I want to say a few things. First, I apologize I haven’t been writing these past few days, and it’s not because I didn’t have anything to write about, but rather, I didn’t yet know how I wanted to write it.…Read More
The Origins and History of Consciousness: The Birth of the Hero
As promised, if you read my previous post, then you’ll know this is continuing on with the book I’m reading, The Origins and History of Consciousness by Erich Neumann. This post will focus on three aspects that encompass one underlying theme: the birth and journey of the hero. The three aspects to the hero’s journey, post-Uroboros, involves…Read More
The Righteous Mind
I’ve been reading a book, actually listening to one, though I am reading one, called “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt. It’s a fascinating book, one that covers a wide variety of topics and themes, but the overarching theme is all about moral psychology, specifically, three different aspects of it. He breaks down his book…Read More
Answer To Job
One of Carl Jung’s most controversial works, Answer to Job, is a deep psychological and mythological breakdown of, perhaps, the most confusing books of the Bible: The Book of Job, and, in turn, God as a psychological phenomenon. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with the actual story of Job, but I should give…Read More
What is Good and Evil?
The title of this post, as you can tell, poses a question: What is good and what is evil? Seems pretty straightforward, right? We all have our own preconceived notion of good, as well as our own conception of evil. But who is that wrote these moral codes within us? Certainly, if you’re of the…Read More
A Brave New World
**Warning. Long post ahead** It’s quite odd to write about a book that was written nearly a century ago, 1932 to be exact, and it still be very much relevant today, and possibly, increasingly relevant as we continue on into the future. And, you might ask, what do I mean? Well, one thing I’ve found…Read More
Was God Naive?
I have this problem, one in which I’m trying very hard to overcome, but it almost seems impossible. What is my problem you ask? I can’t stop myself from continuing to start new avenues of creativity, you could call it, without finishing my current one. What I mean by that is, although I haven’t finished…Read More
Why I don’t pray
I want to write about something that I’m fairly certain is going to be close to one of my more controversial posts, if not, my most controversial. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time, but every time I start, it doesn’t feel as if I’m ready. Now, for reasons beyond…Read More
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…Read More
