The Great Return

The homogenization of society across the globe, will only diminish the unique cultural, religious and ethnic identity of the various peoples that inhabit this earth. The trajectory that has been established by modernization, enabling the assimilation of traditional moores to give way to the lowest common denominater, will not lead to an amalgamation of society,Continue reading “The Great Return”

View from Above

B”H Transcending Divisiveness If you lived in an isolated city, where there were only two flavors of soda, Coke or Pepsi, you would be compelled to choose one of the two, assuming that you enjoyed drinking soda in the first place. Imagine these two brands competing with each other on billboards, advertisements in printed mediaContinue reading “View from Above”

Perspective is Paramount

B”H Faith restored, heart enlightened, spirit renewed. Some might think that I am overreacting. However, I have been sheltering in place, virtually twenty four – seven, somewhat isolated from others, except for Zoom, email, text and phone. The end result being that I tend to dwell on the negative news, and had developed a viewContinue reading “Perspective is Paramount”

A Lapse of Knowledge

“The more I learn the more I realize how much I don’t know.” – Albert Einstein Life is like a canvas, whereupon the childhood imprints of our lives leave an impression of some sort, depending on those experiences. Even if we attempt to paint brighter colors over the dark, or find that life itself, somehowContinue reading “A Lapse of Knowledge”

If I base my self esteem on my writing, then, I will always be in flux, subject to the ebb and flowContinue reading “reflections: Higher Purpose”

B”H The following began as a set of semi incoherent sentences that I wrote before my first cup of tea this morning. Hopefully, I have managed to patch this up enough for the sake of cohesiveness. I have tried to salvage this; perhaps, I have succeeded in doing so. At the time I wrote this,Continue reading “reflections: Rediscovering Time”

reflections: Transcending the Pandemic

B”H The acquistion of rolls upon rolls of toilet paper may be regarded as a manifestation of the need for psychological reassurance, that a human being in the face of this pandemic can still do something to placate the feeling of not having any control over the situation. I would proffer to recommend that thereContinue reading “reflections: Transcending the Pandemic”
