Book recommendation: ‘The New Queer Conscience’ by Adam Eli

A very short book (more of a booklet, really) but with a clear and powerful message: queer people anywhere are responsible for queer people everywhere. Drawing inspiration from his Jewish faith, Eli proposes for the international queer community a way forward characterised by solidarity, intercommunal responsibility and radical empathy. Considering how queer people are treatedFortsätt läsa ”Book recommendation: ‘The New Queer Conscience’ by Adam Eli”

Book recommendation: ‘Old Ones in the Old Book: Pagan roots of the Hebrew Old Testament’ by Philip West

This book retraces the origins of the worship of Yahweh not from a strict monotheistic religion, but a polytheisitic one where He was among many other Deities. The likely political, cultural and historical reasons why He went from being the protector God of Israel to being seen as the only and one true God areFortsätt läsa ”Book recommendation: ‘Old Ones in the Old Book: Pagan roots of the Hebrew Old Testament’ by Philip West”

The soul and the soul alone

I’ve been returning a lot lately to the great well of wisdom that is Hindu scripture. It’s something I do when I’m going through rough times or just not quite feeling like myself.

What the religious authorities fear

Recently I’ve been reading this book, Spirit Marriage: Intimate Relationships with Otherworldly Beings by Dr. Megan Rose and it’s a fascinating read so far (I’m about halfway through).

He is also aFortsätt läsa ”A great book about an important subject”

Three things I want to do this year

I’m not really one to have new years resolutions and I haven’t made any for 2022, at least not in the sense of things I’ve promised myself to do. But I do have certain plans for this year about which I would like to write about. The first is to learn more and write aFortsätt läsa ”Three things I want to do this year”

Last Words of the Sage – updated version

Recently, I mentioned I was going to do some editing on my published novella and now I have. Most of the changes are rephrasings, nothing major, and the plot is still the same. I really wanted to make clearer both the Oneness and Plurality of the Divine in the message, which I realised focused farFortsätt läsa ”Last Words of the Sage – updated version”
