The Wisdom and the Word

Can you imagine a city without walls? It’s kinda hard for me too. There are some famous ones (The Great Wall of China), and some infamous ones (The Iron Curtain). Usually they just give a structure its form, yet in some places they are canvas of art. In the scriptures there are a few stories…

Terror and Tenderness

It’s about that time of year again. Where grandmas will be making pumpkin pie. Jack O’Lanterns will be smiling with their goofy ghoulish grins. Many a man and lady will meet their vampires and not know witch way to turn, or were to wolf, lol. Fall is fun. For many Halloween is fun. It is…

Dating and Dollars

If you haven’t had that relationship quality and satisfaction that you always knew was out there, and you could never figure out what the heck was going on… Please, tune in for a few moments. I have something to say. It blew my mind when I realized it. How much would you like to know…

Naaman

How would you feel after coming a long way to see a Doctor for a nasty condition; knowing that the Doctor was a specialist in it, and instead of giving you some amazing new experimental pill for it — he proceeds to tell you straight faced while you are looking at him with a dead…

The Enemy

There goes an old saying: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”…

The Small Voice

Look around you. What do you feel? Here… in this present moment. What are you observing? Are you observing yourself? Frankly, it can be quite strange when you realize that you can think of yourself outside your own body, and your own head. In that place in this moment what do you hear? What tones…

Love

Love. I have come to know that there is no other word that is spoken of as much or as greatly. I have come to see that there is no other word that evokes more opinions than this term (other than religion or sexuality at this cultural moment in time). It has almost lost its…

Archons and Authors

Throughout history, we have loved and we have fought. We have loved rightly, and wrongly. We have fought nobly, and mistakenly. Even with the best of intents… we have made some really bad choices. In our collective search of reasons to feel strong, and to find strength… we have looked for people to inspire our…

Beauty and Blemishes

Blemishes. You know what they are. Everyone from the high to the low has had them. They are the bane of existence for some teenagers who are about to go to prom (I’ve never done that, but I’ve certainly had my fair share of acne in the past). And for certain there is no end…

The King of the Grind

It’s Monday; you’ve chugged two cups of coffee, and already want work to be over with — and it didn’t even start yet. You look at your watch to see how many free minutes you have left to yourself before you clock into the corporate slug-fest (or so it feels). You do so, and the…
