Why I seem to Align more with the Political Right than with the Political Left

I would like to make something clear, not because I’ve been questioned, but because I feel it is worth addressing. Many people may think that I’m on the political right, but I’m not, I am a classical liberal (voluntaryist / ancap / Libertarian), which means I value individual rights, and I’m open to a wide range of viewpoints, and I synthesize them with systematic thinking into an overall worldview that […] Read more »

The Problem with Equity

We support a diversity of ideas that stems from an equality of opportunity to share them. However, we feel that all forms of diversity that stems from an equality of outcome (equity) will cause psychological harm to the self-worth of the individuals that it seeks to protect, will limit their potential development as healthy and unique individuals, and will thus limit the value of the ideas that they will be […] Read more »

The Seventh Hermetic Principle of Gender

Are masculine and feminine a polarity pair, or something different that each contains a polarity pair? Stating that a man or woman is a typical polarity is akin to stating that the earth is a polarity. The earth has a North and South pole, just as each individual human has a North and South pole, but depending on a person’s gender, is reversed. A man’s north magnetic polarity is his […] Read more »

Revolution or Evolution?

“Are you stuck in a revolving ouroboros, or are you on an evolutionary spiral inwards? In order to leave the ouroboros of externally conditioned thinking and relating behind, we must travel inwards until we reach our Source at the point of internal singularity. It is just past this point of infinite Oneness that we are then able to travel back out into the realm of material experiences, where we can […] Read more »

The Hermetic Dynamics of Twin Flames

Our Twin Flame is an external representation and reflection of our internal opposite gender. As a male, our Twin Flame will be the external version of our Anima (internal feminine), and as a female, our Twin Flame will be the external version of our Animus (internal masculine). External reality is merely a reflection (effect) of internal reality (cause); it’s not that our internal other completes us, it’s that they ARE […] Read more »

Carl Jung on Anima Projection

Excerpt from Man & His Symbols (Audiobook) by Carl G. Jung on the negative aspect of the anima in the male psyche. The anima and animus, in Carl Jung’s school of analytical psychology, are the two primary anthropomorphic archetypes of the unconscious mind, as opposed to both the theriomorphic and inferior-function of the shadow archetypes, as well as the abstract symbol sets that formulate the archetype of the Self. The […] Read more »

Transform Your Relationship to Causality, in Order to Transform Your Relationships

Cause is power, and power is cause; it is either inside-out, or outside-in. A powerful being is cause over others, whereas an empowered being is cause of their own life from within. Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause. ~The Kybalion, the Sixth Hermetic Principle of Cause & Effect Mastering cause and effect is a very difficult task, as there seems to be many different interlocking beliefs […] Read more »

Deepening Our Generalizations

I wrote this a month ago, but because of our site being down, I hadn’t gotten around to posting it yet. ~Nathan It is the generalization logical fallacy (logical deception) to say such things as “have faith”, “be loving”, “remain hopeful”, “let it go”, and “be mindful” when they aren’t first placed within a logical context and framework that defines their meaning, as they are general concepts that can mean anything the […] Read more »

The Power of Deepening

Jealousy is the byproduct of not being capable of deepening a relationship sufficiently enough to bind it together with deep roots. We want intimacy, but we don’t want to work the process that causes our connections to deepen and solidify. Sure we’ll put effort into obtaining superficial variety, but we will not exert effort into deepening what we already have, especially within ourselves. What exactly is deepening? For example, critical […] Read more »

The History of Political Correctness

Political correctness is a farce, as it is taking responsibility for the feelings of others instead of allowing them to be responsible for them. If we are unable to say what we’re feeling, we are denying others the opportunity to deal with their feelings, process their emotions, and correct their root perceptions that originally caused the interaction and offense in the first place. It is a missed opportunity for us to work […] Read more »

Do you act to become, or do you act because you are?

Do you act to become, or do you act because you are? This is more than a subtle distinction, but a radically different perspective that determines the quality of your life. Acting to become is attempting to do something to be something that you are not already, however, acting because you are is performing actions from a place of awareness and self-knowledge, because you are already it, and now it […] Read more »

Boundaries, Perceptions, and Cause and Effect

If you must set a boundary in an interaction, you do not yet have effective boundaries in this area of your life; boundaries only need to be enforced when they haven’t been previously set. Setting boundaries requires knowledge of what you are creating in your life, and an understanding of why you are creating it, so that you can make conscious changes to your root perceptions – which allows you to […] Read more »

What Does it Mean to be Empowered?

  There are two perceptual worldviews that we can build our lives upon, an externalized causality from the outside-in, and an internalized causality from the inside-out.  Those who operate as if the external world is cause will view themselves as merely an effect; and this is known as “victim consciousness”.  However, those who operate as if their internal world is cause will view their external world as an effect; and […] Read more »

Reflection & Projection

There are two things that can occur in our interactions with others—reflection and projection. Reflection is when experiences reflect back to us from others that show us aspects of ourselves, and projection is where we externalize aspects of ourselves onto others that aren’t actually them. Projection can be anything that we avoid seeing in ourselves and instead only see in others, good or bad, whereas reflection is always occurring, even […] Read more »

Are You Powerful, or Are You Empowered?

Many spiritual circles use the terminology Service to Self (STS) and Service to Others (STO) to describe the alignment of the various beings in our Universe, where STS is selfish, manipulative, fragmented, and externalized, and STO is integrated, whole, and creative.  We feel that the Service to Others moniker can be a bit confusing, since “service to others” has come to be associated with “sacrificing for for the greater good”, which is […] Read more »
