Everything feels meaningless and arbitrary. Concepts are illusions that our minds made up. Why do we...

    Can’t beat the urge to self harm

    I’ve been suffering with depression for so long now but this last month has been horrendous. My behaviour has been out of control and I am hurting everyone around me without meaning to. It’s leading me to self harm on a regular basis and I just can’t take no more. :(

    The esoteric meaning of the tetragrammatron.

    Western religion has a terribly inaccurate and limited view of the body, soul, and spirit. Such a view has led to the church’s failure to properly portray and instruct how we advance in the kingdom of God. Jesus plainly stated God’s kingdom was within us (Luke: 17:21), and Paul teaches us that...

    Can a depressed person live a meaningful life?
