We live in a universe of duality.
Duality is fine. I like duality. I like it because it works. Male and female – that one works really well. Black and white. We have two hemispheres of a brain to deal with duality, one side creative, and one side linear. Duality is our nature in this place.
When duality becomes polarized, THEN we begin to run into problems. Male OR female. Black OR white. Left brain OR right brain thinking. Polarity goes against our nature in this reality because it demands one or the other and a sense of “you can’t have it both ways” – even if you’re supposed to.
In the spirit of universal duality, this site is about two concepts that are both very important to me: music and what you might call transcendental spiritual thinking.
Music is an easy concept to grasp. We all know what music is. The music here is my own that I produce in my little upstairs bedroom recording studio.
After my mother died on New Years’ Day 2016, I began experimenting with making music based in binaural beats for meditation, relaxation, and personal healing, but it doesn’t end there. I produce all kinds of music. I’m into and aware of many styles of musical composition and I embrace all of it. It’s a passion of mine, and I’m always striving to become a better composer and producer. It’s not for money or gain, or anything like that. It’s because I truly enjoy doing it. It’s part of what gives my life meaning and purpose.
The other part of this site is more thought provoking and philosophical. It’s about me speaking my truth. I love to study so many things, history, sciences, philosophy – what could be considered religious and political ideas. I’m a student of people like Manly Palmer Hall, Carlos Castaneda, Jiddu Krishnamurti, and David Bohm, – among many others too numerous to list. Some names, like Jordan Maxwell, I’m sure you’ve heard, and there are some I’m sure you haven’t heard of. Some don’t even share their names with the rest of the world.
I’ve heard it said that the mind is like a parachute – it works best when it’s open. I keep an open mind and heart to anything I hear or read and try to use my best discernment to separate facts from fiction. One thing I’ve learned walking this path is no one has all the answers, and anyone who pretends they do, is a liar.
I read the Bible. Not as much lately, but I still go back to it. When I read it, I use a Green’s Interlinear side-by-side with an older Strong’s Concordance, and Bullinger’s Companion Bible as a “Cliff’s Notes”. Even though it’s been chopped up and edited beyond belief, I believe there’s still very valuable information and insights in that book. I also study the Apocraphic texts. The Book of Enoch is especially interesting to me.
My ideas about what makes this reality the way it is are constantly evolving. I’m exploring ideas. I’m researching.
I certainly don’t have all the answers. If anything, I’m always asking new questions with every piece of the puzzle I find.
So listen, read, and keep an open mind to the information you’ll encounter here. If you have feedback, or ideas of your own, please share them. There’s Disqus discussion provided at the end of each article in the web site.
By the way, writing is also a passion of mine, and I have a whole other domain devoted to publishing that work: damnage publishing – which I began back in 1999. I wrote and published the novel, Dead Angels Bleed back in 2010, and more information about it can be found at damnage if you’re interested or curious.
