No man is free who is not a master of himself – Epictetus. Can you imagine how powerful it is for a scientist to suspend their disbelief and engage in spirituality? How about the proven spiritual practitioner that embraces science that doesn’t insult their soul? It isn’t reserved for religion – spirituality – and it…

More than Thought

Aspiration as a level of awareness reveals a difference in perspective from the mass level. That difference in perspective can be willed upon by ourselves and only ourselves – it doesn’t matter how many ideas and subjects we’re exposed to. If you desire to reach your aspirations, you’ll have to act. It is the difference…

Experience

Have you heard of #inktober? Apparently it’s a thing over on Twitter. See the rules here. Artists from all over make spooky things in ink every day for the month of October.

Dissonance Part Two

This is part three of a series on Bullshit. Start here It’s worth noting that Bullshit, or that which is untrue, can only exist in the absence of its’ opposite.
