This article was originally posted to my Facebook to liberate myself from my own inner shackles of Liberalism and to reclaim authenticity over my digital spaces and self-expression. It is a diary entry as much as a public article, and is more stream of consciousness and personal than my typical writing, including the vulgarity/cursing that can come with authenticity. Just so you know what you’re getting into.
“Love” is not about The Who or What which comes after Love. Love is about the I, the Infinite I, that comes before Love, regardless of Who or What comes after.
I had planned to start my blog in a simpler time at a more comfortable pace. But sometimes there are situations that beckon people out of their unreadiness and into action, beyond oneself and into the world.
This is one of those times. For all of us.
As of writing/publishing, we are still in the first week+ of the Western world being upended by the coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re only in the beginning. There will be much more to deal with, observe, and act upon as time progresses.
I feel called to share occasional updates as time goes, so consider this Part I of When the West Stood Still.
This report is larger than I imagined from the onset. At 18,000+ words, it feels like a stimulus package for our awareness. If you feel called, circulate this report with anyone whom you feel needs the intellectual reassurance at this time.
May it bring your mind to ease.
NOTICE 05/27/20: Reality has shifted tons since the writing of this article, along with my personal level of perception and how I view things, thus I cannot guarantee the integrity of everything I wrote here. Information-based writing always becomes outdated, for fact is not truth. For this reason, my work future will rarely depend on information and instead be founded on frameworks and perspectives which cultivate greater understanding of oneself and the world. As always, defer to your personal discernment in all that you consume.
