Does The Matrix Have You?

An excerpt from Issue #1 of The Deprogrammer. What IS the Matrix? The Matrix is the images our mind constructs when forming our perception of reality and the emotions we attach to the situations that are constructed in the mind by the Matrix. Escaping the Matrix can start by knowing that it’s there and avoidingContinue reading “Does The Matrix Have You?”

The Truth About Pride

If I were not a gay man, I would be accused of homophobia for saying this, but pride is not defined as a summer month celebrating homosexuality.  The media might have us believe that the only definition of ‘pride’ is purely associated with being gay and that after June we don’t need to think aboutContinue reading “The Truth About Pride”

THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES

Inversion and selfishness are at the root of all lies. Lies are not just the inversion of truth, but the inversion and destruction of reason. A lying individual may take up the practice not just to get his way, but for reasons he views as being purely practical.  He may not be clever enough toContinue reading “THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES”

They Are Sooo Unhappy

It seems that I can’t get out of the house without experiencing the pain of others.  I deleted my Facebook account last year to escape the pain and noise of the echo chamber that it is, but even walking into public, people appear beat-up and defeated. Only yesterday I made the mistake of allowing anContinue reading “They Are Sooo Unhappy”

Self Transformation Can Get Ugly

I have become fascinated by horror movies where people are transformed into monsters.

Triggered. Child tantrumsContinue reading “Self Transformation Can Get Ugly”

Are You Being Vampirized?

I had a dream last night about an old friend. He was my best friend for 5 or 6 years.   We worked on creative projects together, we were even roommates for a while. But something happened and our friendship devolved into an energy-sucking one-way street. I had moved to the opposite coast and noticed thatContinue reading “Are You Being Vampirized?”

Are You In Hell?

SOURCE: Samhain, #6. You might gather by my use of the imagery above that this is not necessarily a fuzzy rainbows and group hug New Age spirituality blog. Like tough love, tough graphics work  to get a point across too so time and again I will likely be using some unconventional visuals to accompany myContinue reading “Are You In Hell?”

Just Suffer

SUFFERING. When I was a kid we used to say, “Suffer!” as a way of saying, “Too bad, deal with it.” I thought it was funny back then, but now it’s all too painfully real. We NEED to experience emotional pain in order to understand what it’s like to be free from it and toContinue reading “Just Suffer”
