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”

The Keys to The Kingdom: My Two Most Valuable Pieces of Life Advice

The older you get, the more you find yourself doubling down on what works. And hopefully, if you’ve taken the difficult paths in life, you’ve discovered some truths of great value. There’s a parable in the Thomas Gospel that I read this morning – Sidenote: Before I continue, allow me to say that I loveContinue reading “The Keys to The Kingdom: My Two Most Valuable Pieces of Life Advice”

Organized Religion Sucks Major Balls

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful.” – Lucias Annaeus Seneca, 4BC – AD65 There are really only a few major religious myths that have survived the ages, and it’s really quite something that these stories have endured for billions of people, butContinue reading “Organized Religion Sucks Major Balls”

Get Thee Up

“I wake up every morning and check if I am in a state of grace,” a 31 year-old Leonard Cohen told an interviewer in 1965. Every morning of your life, you choose whether your soul is in a state of grace or not. Now, whether or not this is a conscious choice is up toContinue reading “Get Thee Up”

Ode to Imagination 

It’s funny: I have learned a lot from life. And my life is good. Damn good. Just finished watching a movie I quite liked. Stayed up all night. Stoned.  My third eye, however, is open. I am clear. Isn’t that a Scientology thing. Going clear. Anyhow, I can see the future with a deep levelContinue reading “Ode to Imagination “

Blind Spots

Biases, weaknesses, complexes, assumptions – things that cloud our objectivity – we all have our shortsightedness.  Unfortunately, we typically do not recognize blind spots until they become clear: in hindsight, where we can see them – often for the first time.  The cause of our blind spots are as varied as human folly, and asContinue reading “Blind Spots”

On Fate Vs. Destiny, and Locus of Control

It’s funny writing this; funny having had this blog for nearly eight years. Funny because I’m so different from who I was even a year ago. I’m quieter now. More introverted. More at peace. But I’m still a seeker, as an oft cited quote here evidences: “I have been and still am a seeker, butContinue reading “On Fate Vs. Destiny, and Locus of Control”

A Sunk Cost: Letting Bygones be Bygones

Before I commence the purpose for which I have set to write upon tonight, I wish to offer a caveat; you see, I was recently told by a dear acquaintance that my writing was good,’…although I sometimes rambled.’ And while I call myself a writer, it is not under the banner of my blog thatContinue reading “A Sunk Cost: Letting Bygones be Bygones”

Only Yesterday

The sun will rise tomorrow, As straight as the crow flies; Daylight will come. And it will be a good day for some, And for others: one dark and tired But I promise you this: They’ve already decided – For whether they know it or not: Their day is upon them. But – Shall theyContinue reading “Only Yesterday”

Sour, Sweet, Salty

What can I say: I’m good.  I used to write with another muse in mind – I used to live that way: constantly hoping to live up to some arbitrary measure; always insufficient for my estimations of myself, and always short of her’s.  Only, today, now, I dissappoint no one; for this is who IContinue reading “Sour, Sweet, Salty”

Acknowledging the Gorge: Accepting and Embracing MY Reality

I don’t typically write in the mornings; however, today is anything but typical, for my life is no longer typical; I have evolved, and I am growing, I am changing, and life has become something other than I thought it was, so I am writing this to declare something: I am accepting that I live inContinue reading “Acknowledging the Gorge: Accepting and Embracing MY Reality”
