Often, at the crossroads of life, we are torn between a sense of longing and belonging. The realisation is a catch 22 situation. Longing is not always about the absence, fear, greed, wants, desires, etc. Longing could be your life’s calling and it might become a life changer. Longing is a freedom to the self. […]
I have some troubles that won’t leave. They’re ones that are always occupying the back of my mind but only rear their head occasionally, and they can’t be solved by any sort of physical deed. About a year ago I finished watching The Sopranos for the first time. A character in particular that jumped out […]
Aren’t we tired of supporting leaders and government who do not have a clear and comprehensive understanding of sustainability? In Malaysia, we are destroying the environment, as if there is a Planet B we can move to. Malaysia’s ideological disease terrorises all the same March 24, 2019 by Dr. Azly Rahman http://www.malaysiakini.com COMMENT | […]
Be careful, this is real: The Church Exposed: Kundalini Awakening Pt. 3 This shows involuntary movements of people who have come under spiritual powers that are very real but are not of God, Christ Jesus. Father, I pray that everyone who reads this blog will be protected by You, that we learn to recognize forces […]
I will not pretend here that I fully understand Existentialism, Phenomenology or Thomism — I am just a student climbing the first steps of a long, long ladder. But ignorance works well as a first filter. The blunt intellectual knife which is all I have to work with, for the moment, impedes a complex elaboration […]
This is a transcript of an earlier interview with Bas C. van Fraassen on “What makes Personal Identity Continue?” Q: Who am I? I’ve moved through time, my molecules differ and I have different memories and have different sensations by any moment but I have a sense of unity? This whole question of personal identity: […]
Albert Camus left this world in an early and dramatic way. However, his legacy remains a literary refuge to discover, how the absurd intermingles with hope by showing us the ability to excel that resides in the human being.
I’ve been waiting for this. Us is director Jordan Peele’s followup to his much-lauded debut, Get Out. It nabbed the filmmaker an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. My expectations were high simply because it was this reviewer’s 4th favorite picture of 2017. It’s hard not to make comparisons as Us is another work in the […]

The existential power of noise.
After a rough few years, 2019 has been a tiny, fleeting peek at the outside world – the kinder, more sanguine one – beyond the cloudiness and into the faintest glimmer of light. Barely there, but still so present. I’ve been hunkering in a small black box, but this time, when I try to pry […]
I must thank the God All mighty for giving me new thoughts on the art of writing fiction. Ever since 2013 I was searching the right methodology of fiction. Yes, God has said give time for your soul to grow. Yes, the seed which God planted in me has become a ripe fruit of harvest. […]
Replete with pop culture references and quips about his preposterous quiff, a more comprehensively flawed misapprehension (and, one suspects, wilful misrepresentation in the service of what passes for journalism in The Times these days) of Kierkegaard’s ideas in 1000 words is difficult to imagine. The Times · by James Marriott Like most great philosophers, Soren Kierkegaard was […]
Existentialism for Everyone First principle of existentialism: You are what you choose to be. Second principle of existentialism: Eternity begins for you in the hic et nunc, the “here-and-now,” the unrepeatable moment. Third principle of existentialism: You are not determined by your genetic make-up. Rather, you are self-determining. Fourth principle of existentialism: You are responsible […]
The Avett Brothers are my favorite band of all time. Without fail their concerts provide space for a bunch of strangers and I to get lost in an experience good and true. Goodness gets especially tangible for a couple of hours while we sing and dance. Gets me giddy just thinking about it. Meanwhile a […]
