Words of Wisdom, or, The Wisdom of Words

A sort of witty play on words that is intended to convey a meaningful message. A very short piece which remains a work in progress that I foresee continuing to tweak and add to or subtract to from time to time.

Statement on Basic Truths

A concise statement on common sense principles. Will probably be revised over time to reflect current affairs.

Governing Energy Flow

An unfinished piece that is intended to serve as a sort of introduction to my writings on Inner Spirituality.

I explain how part of the reason for some of what is going on in the world at present has to do with people's predisposition to connect the inner and the outer in ways that attest to their innate spiritual nature.

Three Reasons for the Current Situation

I discuss three broad causes behind the current polarization and social tensions in America and the world in a manner that ties together spiritual and worldly considerations.

Master's Thesis on Hegel's Philosophy of Religion

A link to my Master's thesis in philosophy providing an analysis of G.W.F Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit that incorporates a number of themes that connect to those found in my other writings. I also ended up producing a revised and expanded stand-alone version of one chapter from this thesis shortly after completing the thesis itself, which can be found here.
