The Upside Down World Part 2

Continuing thoughts that I began yesterday…We are living in a world of make believe where truth is turned on its head. We are made to accept lies and to believe what is clearly utter fantasy, even though our senses tell us something else. Those who’ve been paying attention know what I mean.  Yesterday I talked about how mental health would become more of an issue as our perceptions continue to collapse and we fall deeper into submission, allowing ourselves to be totally manipulated and controlled. Our ennui will be so bad we won’t even want to break out our adult … Continue reading The Upside Down World Part 2

THE TRUTH ABOUT SOLITUDE

Solitude is the penicillin for a social disease called Social Media. Solitude is a necessary part of self improvement and personal growth. It allows us to understand that what we grasp for and envy in others is something that actually lies within us. We look so far outside of ourselves, we never realize that the answers and riches we yearn for all lie within. Sometimes you can’t help sounding new agey, but those answers are buried within us and it’s the matrix of the modern world that prevents us from experiencing and knowing this truth. I wrote a bit about … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT SOLITUDE

The Truth About Gang Theory

These days hatred is expressed much more openly, loudly and without thinking than is love.  Equilibrium then becomes largely unattainable and imbalance is accepted as normal. Even for those who don’t think in such terms or understand the Law of Polarity, they do feel the effects of imbalance and know that something is not right, that this psychic confusion is not normal. And that something is amiss. Imagine swimming with cement shoes and you desperately want to dive over into the deep end and enjoy the cool water there, but you can’t because you’ve committed to those shoes. You know … Continue reading The Truth About Gang Theory

Intolerance is Hot Right Now

There’s a person I know, someone who I’ve admired for years–creative, passionate about life, engaging, fun, a joy.  But then I realized that nearly every moment she shares on social media has been of outrage and venomous hatred. It’s gone so far that she has even called for the death of people she does not agree with. I’ve made a point of staying away from the mind-controlling echo chamber of thee main culprit of social media conditioning, an entity whose name I won’t mention, but the ferocity and number of people who’ve been effected by the programming seeps through nonetheless. … Continue reading Intolerance is Hot Right Now

BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!

I’m very happy to announce the release of my first book, Toxic Rainbows. I have so many feelings and thoughts associated with what I’ve written that I struggle with even giving it an elevator pitch that does it justice.  It’s philosophical, psychological, spiritual, autobiographical–it’s a manual for gaining clarity in a world that is designed to distract and distort perception. As I wrote, I realized that I had been keeping mental notes my whole life on what I had been learning, observing and understanding about myself and human nature. The pain and confusion I saw around me compelled me to … Continue reading BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!

Is More Not Enough? What’s Missing? – Book Excerpt

My book, TOXIC RAINBOWS will release this Fall as an ebook.  Enjoy this excerpt. We are living in a time of relative abundance, excess and opportunity, yet we continue to feel deprived and left wanting for more.  What is it that’s missing? Can it be satisfied by shopping, having another child, redecorating? This empty feeling and searching for substance is brilliantly depicted in Orson Welles’ classic film Citizen Kane and was more recently explored in Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World.  We see in these film characters a desperation to possess an unnamable something.  Similarly, we sense a … Continue reading Is More Not Enough?

Toxic Rainbows – Fall 2018 Release

Toxic Rainbows is a book I had no intention of writing, but it came out of necessity.  It wrote itself after a few years of self-reflection and contemplation of how as a society we are to function spiritually in a world where spiritual transformation plateaus with a hollow meme or a proficiency at yoga. I am a Generation X writer with the perspective of having experienced life pre- and post-internet. The remarkable experience for some of us was watching life unfold as a veil of delusion was constructed around us. We have the capacity for second sight because we can … Continue reading Toxic Rainbows – Fall 2018 Release

Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery

Modern day slavery exists and our captors care nothing of our race, gender, social or economic background. They are unmoved and non-biased. This is something I think about quite a bit and it doesn’t seem like one day can go by when I feel the screws tightening. Today in came in the form of an article about St. Louis University installing surveillance devices, 2,300 of them, into every dorm room for this coming semester. The devices, are of course marketed as ‘assistance’ tools that answer questions about the campus. Just like everything that is bad for us, we accept it … Continue reading Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery

I AM a Child of God…Again

Feeling connected to a Higher Power is not something easy to start talking about. I’ve never been a big fan of poetry, I’ve just never had much patience for it, but when you want to start describing the feelings associated with God, it will give you a much greater appreciation for the poetic arts, because how else can you describe it? Yesterday I was excited to go to the baptism of the daughter of good friends and felt an immediate connection to the ceremony and being in the beautiful church where the ceremony took place. The officiating priest announced that … Continue reading I AM a Child of God…Again
