Writing at the crossroads of 

politics, philosophy, and religion.

Trying to find a balance between

all three.

From the Books

 

“Still, the soldiers’ overjoyed commanders seemed not to notice their inferiors' discomfort. It was as if they lived in a different world; one filled with gleaming warriors and devoid of any miserable men. Of course, no matter how much their soldiers suffered, the commanders would be paid handsomely for their efforts in the south. War was all the same to them. Provoke. Profit. Repeat. Rarely did they leave room for remorse. Never did they leave room for humanity. They would continue killing and enriching themselves for all eternity if they were allowed to. And, as it appeared, no one was about to stop them.”

-The Ruin of a Ruler, Part II

From the Blog

 

"Religion was never meant to be a concrete institution. Religion began as an experience, and it refuses to let go of its roots. Timidly following others’ orders and blindly believing in their books is not the answer . . . Letting religion work for you, instead of making yourself work for religion, is the answer. Choose whatever religious path you please, but do not do so for the sake of appeasement or conformity. Do so for the sake of discovering your own divinity, and you will make fulfillment inevitable."

-The Individual in Religion: The Shaman, the Priest, the Prophet & the Pioneer
