Exploring Eternal Recurrence: Some Big Heckin’ Philosophy

As I get older my philosophies become less hypothetical and more palpable. So instead of asking myself, “What if this were true?”, I’m asking: “Since I believe this to be true, what are the implications?” Inquiries of this nature can hit pretty hard because mentally it’s no longer a drill, it’s the real thing –Continue reading “Exploring Eternal Recurrence: Some Big Heckin’ Philosophy”

Beauty and the beast I made a pauper of a princess I was beneath the animals, Under a mountain of fear; I wasn’t nearly good enough, To escape the shame I deserved – The shame I needed, So I’m sorry and grateful: Reconciling these two only humbles me more But I was never humble before,Continue reading “Beauty and The Beast (A Sad Love Story)”

The Resources to Handle Any Given Situation

I’ve something major to tell you: There is no such thing as stress, only the belief that we don’t possess the resources to handle a given situation. This isn’t new-age optimism or clever logic; it’s the truth. The idea comes straight from the Wikipedia page for psychological stress: “Humans experience stress, or perceive things asContinue reading “The Resources to Handle Any Given Situation”

I’ve gone through many iterations of myself: from a naive, ambitious, and shallow young man, to a selfish, fearful alcoholic, and finally, to a person who is coming to find peace with themselves – but I’ve always been a seeker; I’ve gone down every road in life: including the spiritual one. From a long influenceContinue reading “New Age Monkeys: A Takedown of ‘Spiritual’ Bullshit”

Musing on Life Through Jack London’s ‘The Star Rover’: “The one man” and “The one woman”

I’m a fan of Jack London. He is, like Steinbeck, one of those California writers who hold a special place in my heart. I see myself like them, and their philosophies speak to me. And while Jack London is best known for adventure stories like Call of The Wild, The White Fang, and Sea Wolf,Continue reading “Musing on Life Through Jack London’s ‘The Star Rover’: “The one man” and “The one woman””

My Teddy, Myself

I don’t have many childhood memories but I remember the book, and the bear. The book was small, with rounded cardboard pages. I must have read it a million times, though the ending made me so sad.

Impromptu Book Report: The Money Master, 1913

While some books – stories – give you but a few chapters of a life, others give you an entire lifetime. The latter tend to be my favorite, for they are more psychedelic – from psyche, mind, and delos, manifesting – because books really are psychedelic. And not in the trippy sense, but in theContinue reading “Impromptu Book Report: The Money Master, 1913”
