Reclaim your Personal Power by Depersonalizing Your Past!

The key to reclaiming our personal power is depersonalizing the bad things that seemingly happened to us as children from our families, teachers, and peers, as we cannot control others but we can control our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors—meaning the location of our power is found within us and not outside of us (often called locus of identity/control). Once we go to the root causes of our upsets, which […] Read more »

What is Shadow Work? Revisited

The late great psychologist Carl Jung defined the shadow as the aspects of self (identity/personality) that we are unconscious of, whereas the ego was defined as our conscious self / individuality. He thought it was the responsibility of therapy, and inner psychological work in general, to make the contents of our unconscious self known to our conscious self, therefore integrating the shadow side into our ego. A well integrated shadow […] Read more »

Is Communism Fueled by Love or Hatred?

I had a few thoughts arise as a result of watching the video below by Jordan Peterson. The shadow and God: I studied under a Saphardi Orthodox Rabbi in the early 2000’s, and he explained to me that everything, including evil and everything we experience good or bad, was within the mind of God. This lines up with the first Hermetic principle of mentalism which states, “the ALL is mind; […] Read more »

Awaken with JP: If Body Positivity Logic Was Used Everywhere

JP is a master at using “reductio ad absurdum”, the reduction to absurdity, to make his points by following the horrible logic of leftist and totalitarian thinking to its logical conclusions, and copy pasting them into other spheres of experience to show how absurd they actually are. Disproof of a proposition by showing an absurdity to which it leads when carried to its logical conclusion, the carrying of something to […] Read more »

How to Bend Reality to Your Will and Become Unstoppable | Moran Cerf on Impact Theory

This is an interesting discussion on free will. Hint, you get more of it the more you know yourself, and understand why you think, feel, and behave as you do. We break free from nature and nurture’s environmental variables through getting to know ourselves, and asserting our will upon what we observe about ourselves, so that we can tweak our focus to reach our full potential. There was something Moran […] Read more »

Does the Antichrist Really Exist?

I’d dare say that at the very least, the “Antichrist” is a metaphor, and that both Christ and Antichrist are essentially the concepts of the Logos and anti-Logos. In philosophy, it would then be Logocentrism vs Nihilism, where Logocentrism is basically a focus on the concept of the Logos; a divine blueprint for reason, empathy (empathy is the emotional component of reason, as it seeks to understand the views and […] Read more »

MILITARY INSIDER: They Panicked When They Saw The Future

I’m back, and my website is finally online to the public again! I apologize for the downtime, but have been working on other projects, and finally came around to calling my hosting provider to resolve the problem. A friend of mine sent me this video (below), and while I had seen it before, I rather enjoyed watching it again with a fresh perspective. Like Viktor Frankl found out during his […] Read more »

Contrast: the Perfect Catalyst for Cultivating a Life of Meaning and Purpose

It is between the two poles of contrast, for instance, between light and dark, cold and hot, male and female, and good and bad, that we are able to discover meaning, and are able to drill down into deeper and deeper levels of meaning/purpose. We can find meaning and purpose by pointing our logic inwards in self-reflection and processing every subtle contrasting experience that life throws our way, which prevents […] Read more »

Jung’s Ideas on Marriage

The mystical path of the divine marriage, also called the divine union and the alchemical marriage, broken down in psychological concepts by Carl Jung. After all, Carl Jung was a student of ancient mysticism, and came to many of his understandings through his own mystical and personal experiences.  I highly recommend listening to this video, and maybe even reviewing it more than once, as it is dense with quality insights […] Read more »

Why Desire Limits our Creative Ability

Not sure if anybody has ever considered the etymological breakdown of “desire” before, but it means to limit and govern creativity and sovereignty. “de-“ means to remove or negate, while “sire” means to beget or to bring into being. Kings would be called “Sire” as a term referring to “my LORD”, as a King was considered to have the right to rule his people as a father had the right […] Read more »

Duality vs Polarity

Polarity is the fourth of only seven Hermetic Principles, which are the foundational laws of nature. “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.” ~The Kybalion, Polarity: The Fourth Hermetic Principle We make the distinction that duality and polarity are not the same thing. While polarities may be dual in nature, they’re not a duality. Duality is when things are wanted/unwanted (good/bad), but if you look […] Read more »

Gray Force Users: Are They (Should They Be) in Canon?

Excellent discussion about balance and the gray Jedi concept, and the video producer brings many interesting points to the table. When dealing with light, dark, and gray, it is important to lean on esoteric and psychological concepts which informed George Lucas’s story, especially Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung. Carl Jung delved extensively into what he called the unconscious shadow, which is that part of ourselves that remains unconscious to us, […] Read more »

Is it the Patriarchy, or the Dark Triad, that’s Exploiting Western Society?

I’ve come to find that there is a large element of misdirection in the concept of patriarchy and male domination. It’s not masculine imbalance at fault, but rather the Dark Triad, which is a deadly combination of Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychopathy, that is the true core issue; and blaming men is just the convenient scapegoat. Women tend to display the dark triad in a different manner than men with the […] Read more »

Jordan Peterson: Logos – The Articulated Truth

In these three videos, Dr. Jordan Peterson discusses the difficult topic of “The Logos”, which is an ancient concept of embodied and spoken truth, which MUST contain reason, as well as dialogue.  In this way, intellectual empathy and dialogical thinking are connected to this concept.       Read more »
