The Truth About Virtue

Virtue is undefiled purity. It is a gift of love. It is a gift imparted to those who feel acts of kindness and empathy. Virtue resides in the heart of man, not his brain. You see, virtue is not a determination of what you consider to be ‘good’, virtue is just doing it without thinkingContinue reading “The Truth About Virtue”

Forcing A Creative Environment

If you’ve been following along here or Instagram, you are aware of my Photos From The Matrix project. For the past six months I’ve been photographing myself in grocery stores and other places of business to assist me in elaborating on the idea of seperation from nature, immersion in the artificial and the importance weContinue reading “Forcing A Creative Environment”

Fear and Self Loathing

Fear is the driving force that inspires most things in our lives. Fear is so powerful that it controls almost all the things that we do and the ways in which we think. It’s incredible to imagine that something with so much power to inspire is the kryptonite that cripples us. Fear is the thingContinue reading “Fear and Self Loathing”

Best Self Help Books For Men

We all know how difficult it is to get some men to do things like going to the doctor, admitting a mistake or…gasp…read a Self Help book!  I know this is a generalization, but just as women are known to be more intuitive, some men just don’t want to admit or show weakness by browsingContinue reading “Best Self Help Books For Men”

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 notContinue reading “Intolerance is Hot Right Now”

Is Halloween the Only Day for Honesty?

Today is Halloween and it occurred to me that it is the one day where people honestly present themselves as something that they are not. Take a second to grasp this.  The rest of the year, we present ourselves how we want other people to perceive us. It’s really a costume party all year longContinue reading “Is Halloween the Only Day for Honesty?”

Embrace Your Inner Dodo Bird

I often think about identity, persona and how we see ourselves. In my book Toxic Rainbows, I talk about how I felt early on that I was different, not the fact that I was a minority, but that my thinking was not quite the same as most and I saw that the brilliance in ourContinue reading “Embrace Your Inner Dodo Bird”

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. IContinue 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 anContinue reading “Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery”

Suicidal Thoughts: Looking At Our Pain With Fresh Eyes

At the beginning of the year I made a prediction that I did not want to come true, but in the intervening months I saw one confirmation after the next that I was not off the mark. I predicted that there would be a major increase in suicides. My prediction may have been partly intuitiveContinue reading “Suicidal Thoughts: Looking At Our Pain With Fresh Eyes”
