  • To Worship

    Do not worship out of hope. Worship out of curiosity. ​Gods always start at the top of your forehead. The most abstract ideas and the most incomprehensible concepts are at the basis of all religion: Chronos (time), Brahman (space), The Word (consciousness). Then they get lower and lower. They deprecate, they decay, and are finally […]

  • Power is sugar

    Peter Douglas Molyneux is the creator of Black and White. In a hot summer night I was left alone with a computer, coffee and this game. After about seven hours of gameplay, I remember walking in a complete rush into the bedroom, and waking up my wife shouting from the top of my lungs: I’m […]

  • Doing the work of God

    When you’re doing the work of God, you have justice by your side. Truth is clear and sharp and you are completely sunken in the smooth, cozy texture of meaning. The work of God means to work for bringing the kingdom of God from above to below: thy will be done, in earth as it […]

  • Thou shall not know thyself

    The religious knot I had no idea until yesterday there is such a thing called “religious trauma syndrome”. I am going trough it and had no idea it existed. Damn, life is interesting sometimes. However, with no name to name it I had my thoughts about the thing. Talking and writing appears to be best […]

  • Religion without the dogma

    People should be free to go to hell. Any religious institution which is so heavily preoccupied with the greater good of humankind, that in effect takes away the right to go to hell, commits in its own turn a terrible sin against the divine inside each human, while the leaders of such an institution are directly […]

  • The Beatitudes And The Samsara

    How Jesus described karma and dharma in a few sentences Oh, hard brain stretch ahead. This is a sort of a brain fever but, a while ago, it broke a lot of conditioning inside me, which the baptism I never asked for instilled. So, we’re at the top of the carousel, here we go. Blessed […]

  • There are two ways of living; one is giving meaning to life and the other is giving meaning to death.

    We need to believe. We need to feel like death is not the end. but, the reality is it might very well be. Not the end in general, the end of you, whatever you are. I wish my mind will somehow preserve itself after death. I wish the hardly built personality made of so many lessons learned, […]

  • What God should have done on the 7th day

    Instead of resting. I mean seriously, why would God need rest anyway? Who are we kidding? The truth is God was gone on the seventh day, probably attending to Her other billion projects, leaving the universe in this unfinished state. He hasn’t been seen around since, so, with six days of divine attention, we’re blessed with […]

  • The religious experience

    This is the knowledge: When I reason, I imagine; when I imagine, it manifests; when it manifests, I understand. This is heaven. When I am not afraid, I am guilty; when I am not guilty, I am proud; when I am not proud, I am afraid. This is hell. Both in the same place at […]

  • 2050, we’ll still be burning witches

    How a church won 300 hours of every child’s life Mr. Reagan in 1984 was asking “why can’t the freedom to acknowledge God be enjoyed again by children in every schoolroom across this land?”. Thirty years later we still have the question polarizing people, this time on the other side of the planet. In my […]
