People discuss wokeness a lot lately. For example, some folks urge people to “stay woke”, while others criticize the dangers of what they term “woke” politics.

The Cause of Inflation
What is the cause of inflation? We have experienced inflation in the United States (and globally) for the last couple of years. And it is hard on people.

I love it, and I think everyone should know about it. Here is the basic gist (with a few… Continue reading Are You in Plato’s Cave?
Non-Dualism and a Love vs. Ego-Driven Life

So, it made me think of living a love-driven life rather than an ego-driven life. To explain the difference between a love-driven vs. an ego-driven life, I’m… Continue reading Non-Dualism and a Love vs. Ego-Driven Life
Update from Love is Stronger
Dear All: As I mentioned a few posts ago, I am working on some courses, art, and book projects related to my my blog content.
