Preface / Author note: I wrote this three years ago; however, it was never properly published, until now. In 2015 my world view was becoming far less ethereal and far more grounded in the pragmatic realities of science and technology; however, this suited me. I was writing a lot of code at the time (nothingContinue reading “My Case for the Simulation Argument”
If I would have tried to conjure up an impression of mindfulness in my head a couple years ago I would have imagined an affluent woman in her sixties, drinking tea and looking out over her oceanfront view, with a warm and contented look on her face. Today, I’ve come to know better. Mindfulness isn’tContinue reading “The Importance of Mindfulness and The Connection Between Mindfulness and Meditation”
Update: Jan 2017 – just going to leave this here: https://www.google.com/amp/paleofuture.gizmodo.com/the-untold-story-of-napoleon-hill-the-greatest-self-he-1789385645/amp?client=safari – Not to detract from the man’s work, but the above read was eye opening to say the least. Take what you will with a grain of salt, the entry below included. tl;dr – I am incredibly excited about this discovery. I am buzzing withContinue reading “Napoleon Hill: Outwitting The Devil”
For a time I didn’t believe in that spiritual spark, the one that fuels discoveries like this – and finding things like this, or rather – them finding me, was a rare occurrence; however, today I am back in the good graces of the universe, and my relationship with providence, with that spark which IContinue reading “Denzel Washington: “You Already Have it, Claim it.””
Update: 10/17/14 I’ve posted a follow-up entry to this on self-mastery that covers both self-control and self-discipline. If you’re interested in self-control and self-mastery, I highly advise you read it. Finding this video is almost a bit uncanny because the creator literally references the very same concepts I came to know through meditation. These include theContinue reading “On Self-Control: Do Yourself a Favor and Watch This Video”
As I get more into CBT, Self-Talk, and Stoicism, the line between philosophy and psychology is becoming more and more blurred – and I like that, because I’m coming across some amazing stuff that really can’t fit into one single bucket. This relatively obscure video is golden – I might watch it everyday. It’s soContinue reading “‘Self-Talk is the Conversation You Have in Your Head’ & Expectations vs. Beliefs”
I came across this and it’s just too good not to share, this isn’t just for males, but anyone who wants to be more fulfilled and mature.
Last night – just before writing this, I went for late stroll at about 1:30 am to a secluded beach where I sometimes sit under the stars and listen to music. The reason I went there was because an arbitrary stressor had upset me and I needed to change the channel in my brain toContinue reading “Nothing. Stardust. The Illusion of Thought and the Nature of Reality.”
Music Makes the Heart Grow Stronger, from the Brooklyn based Atomic Tom. The integrity of the song speaks for itself. Enjoy it. p.s. I have a feeling that the combination of Saturn Returning for my 29th year and the emergence of daily meditation into my life is ushering in a very prolific time for myContinue reading “Atomic Tom: Music Makes the Heart Grow Stronger”

Having just had the sublime pleasure of watching Shawshank Redemption for the first time in my adult life, I immediately knew it would forever be one of my favorite films. There are exactly three other movies which occupy an equally special place in my heart. So special that they feel as if they are anContinue reading “Four Favorite Films”
