Why the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

Have you ever asked yourself why God put the tree with the fruit that caused man’s downfall within the garden in the first place? There are all kinds of answers. You could say that its presence made man authentic, so long as he didn’t partake of it. I suppose that’s true, but what was man … Continue reading

Wasting My Time?

I want to share with you a snippet from a recent series of posts on the website peakoil.com. The thread they came from was titled ‘The Wisdom of the Dark Emotions.’ I shared something there that was probably casting pearls before swine, but I was thinking it out, so I shared it anyway. As I’ve … Continue reading

Your Sins are Forgiven

When I was going to the park today I chanced by the local video store. Yes, we still have one of those in my neighborhood. The front of the place is covered in movie adverts and other kinds of posters for upcoming concerts and events. There was also a marriage notice, for the gay owners … Continue reading

What is Freedom?

I’m writing this in the aftermath of the vote in the UK to exit the European Union. This isn’t the only political act of separation that stirs the world these days. There are plenty of more minor examples of various regions in the world that all want some level of autonomy that rings better for … Continue reading

Which Way to the Kingdom?

So there is this county clerk in Kentucky who won’t issue marriage licenses to gay couples. It is the law of the land, but she says that she won’t do it because it is against her religion. I say, where is your particular kingdom, woman? Is it of this earth, of the United States, of … Continue reading

Build This Ship to Wreck

Yesterday I was stuck in traffic on the same stretch of road for the umpteenth time on my way to work. I have this problem every day that I have to use this way to get out of town and onto the freeway at this particular time. This time I felt more put upon than … Continue reading

What is Good?

When looking through the channels Sunday morning, I get over the air reception, I decided to see what some of the more obscure looking ones were. There was a lot of church stuff on. One of the obscure channels had a program where a man said something akin to, “You see this pattern over and … Continue reading

The State of Things

I’ve been looking on with wonder at the rate of police related problems that have occurred not just recently in America, but over time. I’ve already blogged about Michael Brown in another post, Speak to the Rock, so I won’t go into that, but there are some other instances that bear talking about, before we … Continue reading

What is Religion?

He wants your soul.

As long as I’ve been around people have been arguing over the definition of religion. Some say it has to do with one’s relationship with God. Some say it has to do with one’s own relationship to one’s self. Some say it has to do with one’s relationship to the cosmos, which taken this way … Continue reading

The Hero’s Journey

Last night I was watching a video presentation by David Wilcock, a noted new age thinker and lecturer, on Youtube. In his presentation he mentioned the hero’s journey as an archetype which dominates not only man as he exists on earth, but man as he exists everywhere in the universe. Obviously, he thinks that we … Continue reading
