I am a freelance writer based in Inglewood, California, USA. I used to write under a few aliases, but now I have nothing to hide and write mostly under my own name. I write mostly on self-help topics.

Thinking about the nature of reality, I can honestly admit that sanity and normality seem like the most important parts of it. To that end, I am writing this article exploring the nature of sanity, insanity, normality, abnormality and all the other related things in my mind about what...
It's a funny thing, but as I was thinking up this article, it came to me that some of the greatest geniuses when met on the street seemed pretty unimpressive to those who walked by them in the time they were alive. I mean, even Albert Einstein was a patent clerk, and Jesus was a carpe...
Some days are better than others, but we can all get better through consistency and effort. Without that persistence failure becomes real, and life becomes nothing but a routine we want to escape.That is "the place" I am writing about escaping.
We all love winning, but do we love just as much honestly working for it?
When I think about the different forms of "The Tree Of Life", here is what I most think of: I do not think of an actual tree, I think of the different levels of reality we are all at in existence. That, to me is the tree of life. Here is that somewhat complicated story from my point o...
Sometimes, we get impatient and wonder "how", "why" and whatever in a gut-wrenching way. Then we get that shot of love from ourselves that keeps us going until things get better or we do not, and it all spirals out of control in a self-dishonest way. The reality of the situation is "o...
Nothing ever stays the same. Everything is change. As long as reality is in motion, there can never be anything that stays still. With that said in an "easy" way, I begin this article and sections.
When life and reality strip you down to the bones and skeletal structure of what it means to live, the old mea culpa (Old World dead Latin language for my fault and Old World Latin slang for, "I won't get away with it") comes up. This is the universal unwritten commandment zero or ele...
In life, we all make choices, they are either good for us and feel bad while we are doing them, bad for us and feel good while we are doing them, or good all around or bad all around. Realistically though, the different drummer comes when we are doing the good all around and we really...
I first met Dr. Robert Anthony in 1981 at an office building where my Mother worked at, in a seminar she was at and took me to. I also bought and read a little $4.95 book called "The Advanced Formula For Total Success" at that seminar and realized that most people there paid upward of...
At some level, many of us want to have it be as simple as signing on a dotted line with God themselves and having a great future written out in stone for us deeply etched in reality by God. Well, it is not that easy of course, and the closest we came to that was The Ten Commandments o...
Negative energy is not something to live with. Positive energy is something to make a life based on though. This article and its sections came from a thought I had about reality, like Napoleon Hill naming his work "The Law Of Success" instead of "The Laws Of Success". There is indeed ...
We all have problems, but, it depends on what we do with them. Do we let them overtake us, or do we work to solve them? It is all up to us.
There are some things in life worth letting go of, and fear and negative attachment are both of them. Courage to let go and be totally positive about yourself may seem a little scary at times, but it is the best thing to do as we shall see in this series of musings from me:
Last night, I watched an old Clint Eastwood movie called "Kelly's Heroes" about a World War II bank caper. Yes, it was a movie about a bank robbery, I do not care about what Clint Eastwood's lead character Lieutenant Tom Kelly said about it being "a private capitalist venture operatio...
I read a couple of lines in a book a couple of days ago, similar to these two sentences: "Surface religion is for those who emptily want to avoid hell out of blind fear, not even knowing what it is. Deep spirituality is for those who have been through hell and do not want to go back t...
You know, the most genuine of experts from ancient times say this uniformly: "A person in a rush never gets anywhere." That is the honest and truthful reality of the situation if you ask me, because expecting things to go right when rushing and not paying attention to them is disaster...
Well, sometimes, reality can be easy, and sometimes, reality can be hard. This article is a sort of primer on how to take it all no matter what.
Simple reality is the reality we must take one step at a time, after all a whole elephant cannot be digested at once. Somehow, as I was coming up with this article, I was thinking about a combination of plain patience and Allen Toussaint's song "Working In The Coal Mine". In reality, ...
Greed and too much "good" luck unappreciated or misunderstood are not good. In reality, the earned is best. Dreaming of a big score instead of making genuine efforts to really win, even if you do "make that big, easy score" do not make a genuine winner. But, here, I will tell you succ...
I lifted the title of this article off a chapter of a book and tape/CD by Dr. Robert Anthony called "Beyond Positive Thinking", but most of this material I am writing will have some "out of the box" originality that will be my own, so be forewarned. Some will like what I am about to s...
Success takes application, not too much dreaming. Oh, yes, dreaming and scheming comes up with the idea, but, application is the thing that does everything. Don't let the three steps fool you, any successful idea has them, by the way.
Hey, I am so rational in most of my articles, that you knew that this subject was going to come up from me. So, I would just like to say, instead of playing lotteries, or hoping for the law of attraction to work, or giving to get. Earn, earn, earn for yourself first in a not lazy way,...
This article title is a simple word. but what does it make you think of? Before you think of the answer, analyze the concept for a moment. Attention is the most important reality of research there is, otherwise, everything you do is moot and nothing. That is how important attention is...
