If you’re a fan of any kind of Fantasy, you undoubtedly know about Lord of the Rings, with its beautiful story, complex characters, and its imaginative and colorful world. The significance of Lord of The Rings for the fantasy and sci-fi genres as a whole cannot be understated. If you were to ask any Fantasy writer, chances are most today would cite Tolkein as an influence in some way. His worldbuilding, personalities, and character archetypes have influenced nearly every corner of literature profoundly.
To be honest, when sitting down to write this episode, it was a DAUNTING task. There’s so much in the lore of Middle Earth, including its expanded universe, where do you even start? In case you didn’t already know, not only was Tolkein influenced by many religious, spiritual, philosophical, and even metaphysical sources, but there are also numerous underlying spiritual messages in his works that hold great wisdom if you know where to look and how to apply it. So...
Something different for this channel, just trying it out: The conversation everyone is talking about, and the conversation nobody is talking about... Until now.
If we look below the surface, there's a lot more going on than what you see in the news. There is chaos in the thoughtosphere, and this conversation is critical if we are to understand the bigger picture of humanity, and set a proper course for our future.

There is an abundance of games out there, and many of the world's most popular games include violence as a primary part of the game. How are we to interact with this, and what effect does it have on us?
We are fairly certain this happens every, a single day in a yoga studio not far from you...

Happy Valentines Day! 33-year-old spoiler warning here, but I guess that goes without saying.
Now - to start it off, the Princess Bride is a story within a story, and if we go deep enough - it’s a story within a story, inviting us to look deeper at our own lives, and to break free of the attachments to the life stories we live out on a day to day basis, and learning to identify at a higher level. But the main focus of the Princess Bride is two main points - a story of true love and all of the forms that true love manifests, and a story of sovereignty.
On its surface, the Princess Bride appears like a fun take on the traditional “damsel in distress” narrative. Girls in Trouble, guy’s gotta rescue her. We have an almost 95% male cast in this movie - and yet the buttercups role here is foundational to the deep spiritual themes underlying this story.
When the story begins, we see Buttercup in a state of sovereign freedom. She can do what she...
Star Wars 9! End of an Era! I guess it seems like many are happy it’s over. Rotten tomatoes, 52% OOF!
Despite that, the new films lack a cohesive plot bridging them all together, Star Wars since it’s very beginning has been steeped in spiritual symbolism, such as the name Jedi seemingly linked to the fictional Egyptian magician named Djedi, and the concept of the force itself based on Taoism. I mean, I’m not the only one who reads the Tao Te Ching and imagines Lao Tzu as a little hairy green man, right? *crickets*
So the rise of skywalker! Let’s break it down!
Oh, btw’s, Spoiler warning, but you knew that already didn’t you?
The movie begins with Rey meditating and gently levitating. She’s asking, “Be with me, be with me; be with me.” Calling to presumably Luke or the other Jedi to support her. Very soon, she says, “You’re not with me” with reluctance, and returns with disappointment to the...
I know what you might be thinking… The hidden spirituality of the matrix is an oxymoron - because it’s not hidden! And trust me - I get it. Even writing this script was hard, because how do we make this episode without basically just describing every scene in the movie… We could probably write an hour-long dissertation on the spiritual allusions in The Matrix and still not run out of things to talk about…
But listen - it’s important to remember that what might be more obvious aspects of spirituality to some, maybe hidden to others. After all, this is one of the essential points of the movie. So let us get into it and see what we find!
Now, as far as I can tell, The Matrix is a documentary about real-life disguised as a sci-fi action movie! Well, okay, maybe not COMPLETELY, but like… 90%… give or take...
To me, The Matrix feels like an encoded message for humanity about the awakening process, and about what we personally go...
The Real Frozen 2 Easter Eggs
If you've seen the reviews of Frozen 2, generally, it's well-received, praised for its heart and story. Still, there is this deep undercurrent of spiritual wisdom, and as far as I can see, it has not yet been dissected. Frozen 2 takes us deep into the unknown, but much do we take for granted just how unknown the deep truly goes.
Let's start with this. Have you ever heard of a thing called The Last Airbender? Specifically, the show, not the movie. Frozen 2 mainly develops on that narrative, reimagining the idea of the avatar and the four elements into this enchanted world.
The Four Elemental Spirits
The four elements are not found as “benders”, however, but are still reflected by beings or spirits made up of their respective elements. Elsa, the last Icebender, primarily experiences her own personal transformation into the avatar by the end. In a nod to both Airbender AND the Legend of Korra,...
The Laws of Man are mutable and changeable. dear boy, what makes you think the Laws of Nature are any different? - (something an entity told me during some recent meditation on Hermetic Philosophy)
At the heart of Western culture lies a foundation in the scientific method. It is the premise that an objective reality exists, and that the secrets of which can be ascertained through replicable and shareable experiments through the testing of informed hypotheses. Yet, even with our modern science grounded in practicality and the material universe, some of the greatest scientists, philosophers, poets, and minds of antiquity - and also many modern-day ones, have acknowledged something particularly impressive in their approach to understanding reality as a whole. It would appear as though the influence of spiritual or esoteric materials on notable scientists ranges from direct translations of the Emerald Tablets by Newton, to philosophies on religion and science from figures that seem to...
