We all have insecurities. That’s not anything new to anyone. We also have our own ways of coping with our insecurities, again, nothing new here. And with all coping mechanisms, there is one more obvious fact I want to share: some are good and some are bad. So what’s a good way to cope with…Read More

“Attention! Here and Now.”
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
Self Worth and Self Realization
I feel like this is going to be one of those sappy posts where I try to make myself, or who ever is reading this feel good. If not that, the initial presumption, based off the title, will give that pre-conceived perception of what this post might be about. And, well, it might be exactly…Read More
Was the Rational Mind Inevitable?
There are quite a few number of atheists, specifically, new-atheists, who have this notion of religion in that they believe that it was an unnecessary by-product by way of what is called a “Genetic Fallacy”. Basically, it’s the idea that just because a certain trait or characteristic, even way of acting in the world, doesn’t…Read More
Is Pain Real?
I haven’t written in quite a while. I think it might be two weeks since, and I apologize, if anyone is actually paying attention to me. I’ll tell you that there’s been a lot going on in my life, much more than I’m comfortable or willing to share, other than simply that there really has…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 Origins and History of Consciousness: The Uroboros and The Great Mother
n the past few days, I’ve been thinking quite a lot lately. It’s not that uncommon for me to think deeply about a particular topic, but this time it’s been quite different for whatever reason, so I thought I’d finally write about it. I will mention ahead of time, there will likely be parts that…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
