Do Pictures Speak Louder Than Words?

I wrote this on Quora, but I thought I’d share it on my blog, as I think the message here is quite powerful. Here it is, Do you pictures speak louder than words? Yes. Pictures do speak louder than words, generally speaking, but I don’t think that has much do with the lack of power…

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…

How to be “Real”

I want to talk about a particular aspect about myself that I’ve been extremely hesitant to share with anyone, for fear of the shame or even ridicule I might get. It’s not that it’s particularly a bad thing, per se, only that, it’s not something that I wanted to make public, and for good reason.…

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.…

Now, before you dismiss me as some crazy,…

Our Wrestle with Life

I’m really not trying to make all my posts religious. I’m really not, but I’m going through the old testament, the part of the bible that, for the most part, is greatly misunderstood, and as I’m going through it, it’s becoming more and more clear to me that these simple stories were not merely simple…

The True Purpose of Religions. All of them.

It came to my attention over the past few weeks, as I’ve been diving into the idea of archetypes, that many people, they don’t understand what they are or they simply do not believe in them. And I came to the conclusion that, it’s not that these people who seem to reject the idea of…
