How Religion Placed Itself Above Us

While in discussion recently about the imminent publication of the next book, ‘Another way to Live,’ I was asked, why I thought is was that religions evolved to feel the need to exert control over people. Why didn’t they just have their beliefs and leave people to decide what they want? It is a great question and one I only gloss over in the book. I have spent some time pondering it and have come up with an explanation that, may or may not be related to the truth, but is, nonetheless logical in my mind. I will share it here.

The Common Thread That Will, One Day, Unravel

Most seem to be of the opinion that Mr Trump won because of an uprising against the current political system. A population overlooked by the political elite. While at face value this looks to be the case, that is not the implication I would like to leave people with.

The Zeitgeist Movement

Life has settled down a little bit so I am looking to getting back to my schedule of writing. A few years ago I was introduced to Zeitgeist the Movie and found it interesting. The movie is one man’s opinion about many things he sees wrong with society. I left my career in finance due to many […]

On Giving

If we enact our charity by giving others some of what we have, We perpetuate the need for charity. If, instead, we enact our charity by giving others some of what we really are, We will slowly, but surely, remove the need for such charity.   The only way we can find out what we […]

Is This Our Panacea? Please Slap Me!

I have written it before, but I am still yet to speak to a single person who is not dismayed, horrified or disgusted by the prospect of Mr Trump becoming president. I said we should not be surprised by how well he is doing. But, barring a drastic turn of events, he will be president and when it happens the world will gasp in horror, but before it does so it will gasp in surprise.

Beware the Calm

Unless a truely conscious effort is made, the emphasis is necessary here, everything we do will fall into the category of habits and addictions that ultimately move us towards the inevitable despite our intentions that may suggest otherwise.

To Catch Sight of the Problem Means We are Close to an Answer

I believe that once we understand a particular natural process whatever it may be, we can use that understanding to attempt to understand other things. Therefore we can use our understanding of processes in the human body to understand what happens at larger scales such as at the planetary level. When I do so I can make sense of what is happening in terms of the idea being discussed.

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing – What I Once Thought Was May No Longer Be

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing – What I Once Thought Was May No Longer Be

I was fortunate enough to have a conversation recently with one of the most intelligent people I know. Conversations about us humans are rare these days and rearer still are those that dig deep enough into the subject. I am constantly assessing and reassessing my thoughts in relation to us being here, the whys and whats etc as I endeavour to find a better way to express my humanity. It gets harder to see any further the more I dig myself so these opportunities to bounce ideas off another are cherished. We finished our conversation with an idea that may have developed due to the conversation or may have always been there, I don’t know.

What is that Sound I hear in the Distance? The Sound of Another Domino Falling

It cannot be stressed too much that if we continue on this path we will not like where it takes us. In a recent discussion I remarked that the crisis that is looming may not arrive in my lifetime as these things must play themselves out in their own time. However, the speed at which we are expressing our desire for more and more division is increasing at an alarming rate.
