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 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”

New Age Monkeys: A Takedown of ‘Spiritual’ Bullshit

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””

Passages: Man’s Search For Meaning, Viktor Frankl

Time and time again I read what I need to read, when I need to read it. I had read Man’s Search For Meaning before; although, as I get older, I find that my own increased experience adds additional dimension to things. Such was the case here. The words of Viktor Frankl, published in 1946,Continue reading “Passages: Man’s Search For Meaning, Viktor Frankl”

Bosom Promise / Transient Coyotes, Home: Unafraid.

I met the coyotes, Past two days Today I was out deep – Knew it was deep when the grade got steep – Met two in a thicket, Tall as wolves Their heads turned (For me!), And I yelled, “Git, skat! Skidaddle!” LOL… And I turned back down the mountain, Away from their territory ButContinue reading “Bosom Promise / Transient Coyotes, Home: Unafraid.”

TBD

A person asks who they are, Who might they become… And years are lost this way, Spent in abstact thought rather than concrete action … To declare ourselves As hero and author of our story, In deed rather than word, Is to know we are not who we think we are But what we are,Continue reading “TBD”

Data Dump: The Time is Now

I come here to do ‘word-processing’, to let my thoughts congeal into coherence – whereafter, I will feel I have achieved something important (For I will have); where I once journaled in lengthy prose, my notebooks these days are filled with jottings – mostly single ideas of varying yet significant importance. That said, the importantContinue reading “Data Dump: The Time is Now”

One Belief to Change Everything, or Not

I have not published anything here in near a month, but a lot can happen in a month – a lot can happen in a day; your days can have significance.
