Spirituality Is Subjective

I love the way Jung framed things. He had a tendency to highlight the individual nature of life before tossing individuation on its head entirely. Where he saw conscious interconnectedness as an important aspect of life he also saw individual consciousness as how we experience life. Both are vital to the seeker. Both are vital […]

Why It’s Important To Plant Seeds

I know it’s easy for us to seek quick fixes nowadays. We literally have instant everything delivered to our doorsteps within 25 hours. Convenience stores at every corner stocked with all our favorite goodies. Instant gratification is the catchphrase of our era. While our society is, in many ways, a marvelous achievement a lot of […]

HOW WE CONNECT

That awkward moment when an introvert falls into the need to cooperate with others through study of protein synthesis. You just can’t make this stuff up. I spent most of my life pretty introverted and withdrawn into myself. At times I’ve had this deep sense that I am just diametrically opposed to the common worldview. […]

SHADOW VS. EGO

Anyone who has studied the psychology of Carl Jung is familiar with the concepts of the shadow and self. Those of us who have embarked on the path of working with our shadows have become painstakingly aware of just how much of our actions are automatically performed without a second thought. Many of us who […]

LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD

Our love lives can feel like a title bout match with a heavyweight at times. We’ll recover from one emotional blow just to be blindsided by another right hook to the jaw. No matter how much we posture and shuck and jive the hits just keep on hitting. We find ourselves regrouping in the corner […]

WE ARE DRIVEN BY DESIRE

Science. Religion. Two sides. Same coin. They dance through the mystery of life trying to ascertain what it’s all about. Then, there’s the mystics, Those are the ones who stand firm that all becoming is the becoming of life and all life is interconnected. The everything is everything people. Great. If it is Wisdom to […]

QUANTUM MYSTICISM EXPLAINED

It has become incredibly obvious that science and religion have taken huge strides in deepening our understanding of the Universe. Recent discoveries have even started bringing these two areas of study together, albeit begrudgingly. Science rejects religion and religion rejects science. Regardless of differences both are the result of humans trying to find their place […]

JUST WALK AWAY

We’ve all stayed in toxic relationships far longer than we should’ve. We make excuses for why we stay and attempt to justify it in every way imaginable. Our friends and family all look at us like we’ve finally fallen down and hit our head one too many times. They can see how futile any attempt […]

IS MORALITY A CHOICE

We all have a rudimentary concept of morality worked out. We have these cute little moral codes we share on our social media. You know the ones. They sound really good and paint the picture we want the world to see when they look at us. They are also usually a lie. We have a […]

MANIFESTATION

I WANT TO BELIEVE We’ve all seen the posts. We’ve all stumbled across the books in the self-help section of bookstores. They’ve tagged the concept in every way imaginable to make it as marketable and trendy as humanly possible over the years. The most recent form is manifestation. From Napoleon Hill’s Think And Grow Rich […]
