The Quest for Autonomy: Nobody Is Smarter Than You Are

Striving for conscious awareness and truth in our daily lives is analogous to navigating a maze of illusions. From our first day in the classroom, we are told what to do and how to do it. Avoid risks, take the easy and comfortable path, don't make too much noise, and you'll be fine. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why? All too often we are told what is right, wrong, politically correct and even taboo; but who decides these things?

A Long Lost Letter From Your Innate Creative Self

You are created by two human beings making love through the beat of their bodies. For nine months you are a tiny organism feeding onto a chord that connects you to your mother's womb. Then you pass through the tunnel that separates you from your mother's body and into an unfamiliar world. Congratulations, you've already come a long way. Now you are human being on planet Earth. For several months or so your heart is literally as close to the Earth as it will ever be your entire life. You are nurtured by your mother through the bosoms that secrete love milk to sustain and nourish you. Then you learn how to walk on your own. Such great talent you have, being capable of walking on your own two feet! Then you are now able to communicate with your fellow beings with full phrases. What a genius you've become! You have an innate curiosity to explore this vast world around you, and all you do is imagine and create. It's your natural state. When your eyes are closed you are able to see ethereal worlds that you would have never seen in a physical realm with your eyes wide open...

Short Meditations on Utopia Pt. 1/3

In the next few posts, I want to discuss the human tendency to get lost in imagining ideal states of affairs. I often find myself getting lost in utopian vision on many levels. There’s the persistent feeling, why can’t things be more like (fill in the blank)? This perpetual dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs is one of the aspects of what the Buddha meant by suffering (dukkha). It’s tough not to look out at what’s wrong with the world (and all the people in it) and not think “if only.” If only things were more like… then everything would be better. Once we eliminate poverty, war, and ignorance, then we could get on with the real task of living! Even though I know that the grass isn’t really greener on the other side, I just can’t seem to stop myself from fantasizing about being immersed in lush emerald fields, where the rivers run clear with sweet water and the animals live in perfect harmony, where no one suffers from lack...I’ll be looking at this issue from six different perspectives...

For the past six months I have been living completely outside my comfort zone. Going to the grocery store was a challenge, finding my way around left me getting lost from time to time, and virtually everything in my life had been flipped upside down... And I absolutely loved it.I have been teaching English at a high school here in South Korea for the past six months and can honestly say it has been the best decision I have ever made. If you're anything like me, when I graduated from college I couldn't stand the idea of getting a job I hated, working there for X years to make the person above me look good, only to find out down the line that I hated the job I was trying so hard to get in the first place...

GÖD, Emergence, Life

Can an omnipotent God create a task he is unable to complete? Is perception limited, if only temporarily, with a growing infinite? Does my creator pose the same questions to his creator as I pose to him? Does my creator’s creator pose the same questions to his creator?...break;The Incompleteness Theorems are applications of logic which extend beyond mathematics.
