    On The Nature Of Discipline

    If I was to put the current instability of western culture down to a single thing, in the simplest way I could conjure; it would be lack of discipline. I am writing for a page called the Philosophical rambler, yet what good are ramblings if not backed by action? For many a man has talked…

  • What Does It Mean To Be Wise?

    What Does It Mean To Be Wise?

    Exploring the psyche is something many would say is best left to the professionals. I can understand why many would leave such a pursuit to: “The experts”, but I actually think psychology is a profoundly misunderstood subject; and what most would consider psychology, isn’t actually psychology at all. Let me put it this way, who…

  • Pop Stoicism & Digital Romanticism

    Pop Stoicism & Digital Romanticism

    Pop Stoicism In “The Art of Living”, Epictetus makes the Stoic argument that we must accept the inevitable that happens within our lives and that without this we will end in despair. This Stoic ideal is upheld by millions today who have come under the sway of “pop philosophy” and Instagram quotes from Marcus Aurelius.…

  • The Larger Purpose

    The Larger Purpose

    Pointless Aimlessness To go through life aimlessly can be entertaining for a while, but eventually, I found myself asking, “is this all there is to life?” If you can relate, I might have some answers for you. First, I think taking time and reflecting upon how you feel is valuable. Reflecting and asking deeper questions…

    Why Existence, Why? “In the beginning the Universe was created.This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy If we come to think about our existence, confronted with the real world, we might be tempted to dread it, right?…

    Meeting Jordan Peterson

    Some of the best experiences in life take time to ferment and mature in our minds before they can be distilled to a traveler. In April of this year, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet one of the people I look up to the most, Jordan Peterson. November of 2021 was a big month.…

  • I Know

    I Know

    Listen And Feel We cannot fully capture all moments with the use of words. These types of experiences are not everyday occurrences. As far as I know, these are what I’d call transformative experiences. Emphasizing that you’re not alone, but rather a piece of a much significantly larger and more powerful being. We’re spiritual beings…

    Void of Meaning

    A few days ago, I clocked out of my 9-5 and took a small nap before getting into my nightly duties at the gym and working on my side hustle. When I woke up it was 4:30 in the afternoon and I felt that I had slept my way into another dimension. I never have…

    How Rational Do You Think You Are?

    Our Most Peculiar Gift We have come a long way. Let’s take a moment to contemplate the accomplishments of those who came before us, a retrospect that can bewilder and amaze us. We have begun to be masters and stewards of Nature. For instance, we have:  While we altered Nature in the outside world, we…

    Lead By Example

    The High Aim If you have a target, any sort of goal, you must understand that it’ll likely require change on your behalf to reach this target. Humans are here to grow constantly and to adapt when necessary. If you’re not moving forwards, learning, adjusting, and looking to improve, you will begin to go backward.…
