Exploring Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Ties To The Illuminati and Freemasons

Ludwig Van Beethoven’s precise date of birth is unknown; he was baptized on December 17,1770, and it is presumed he was born on December 16th. He is well recognized for his music that still holds strong today, but few know about the mysterious and unusual aspects of his life.

Beethoven was a Freemason that was closely allied with the most infamous of all Masonic orders, the Illuminati of Bavaria, a group that only openly existed for 6 years. Other significant Freemasons in history link to many of the Presidents of…


Why You Should Consider The Covid Vaccine Even If You’re A Skeptic

Over 162,000,000 people have been effected by Covid-19 to date, and an estimated 7,000,000 have died from it.

I believe it’s time we have a serious conversation about the solution.

I am not an anti-vaxxer (a harsh black and white term that should not be used to define the wide spectrum of the vaccine-hesitant population), I’m more of a skeptic, especially concerned about what goes into my children’s bodies- which is fair, is it not?

It‘s hard for me to just blindly trust Big Pharma and assume they…


Sobriety, Relationships, and the Dangers of Perfectionism

“Perfectionism is a council of despair.” -Alec Empire

Death is perfect…

Death isn’t bad, it just is. We are so poorly educated on the matter, it’s no wonder the devastating effect death has, like when we lose a loved one. Plus, nobody knows for sure what happens after death.

I believe it is a transition to something better than this- although “this” can be pretty awesome, especially when we are living and not dying.

But I am talking about a different type of death for the most part.

On the subject of Perfectionism…


Faith Put To The Test

It’s been a hell of a year, and I’m sure I don’t need to regurgitate the dilemma’s we’ve faced, the out of the ordinary circumstances and relentless problems. The question is, what now? What’s next? And, will it get better?

I’ve been around the sun 45 times, and have never witnessed anything quite like 2020. Luckily, my faith is strong and my foundation also, but what about the people without such? Those I have compassion for, because one things for sure.

This ain’t no unicorn parade.

We need to love hard to get through this…


10 Life Changing Measures Now

2020 is no joke. For many, many people, it is the most challenging time of their lives. My 97 year old grandmother said “it’s worse than during WWII”. Unfortunately, she is stuck (as many elderly people are) in a facility that only allows family to visit through the window.

Nice way to treat the generation that basically built this nation. Anyway, this blog will focus on ways we can uplift ourselves when feeling blue during this unprecedented shit-show I’ll call the Covid Era.

Isolation and other symptoms of this Covid Era can become an issue…


And What To Do About It

I’m not talking about like tax fraud.

We were all born and raised, but more importantly, PROGRAMMED our entire lives. Who would we be without that programming, with different programming, or if we were able to program ourselves?

Who are we really? What do we sound like, how would we behave, what are our true belief systems outside of this programming? Are we capable of reprogramming ourselves any way we choose as adults?

There are too many factors to consider when analyzing how we came to become who we are. …


Today Is The Best Today That Will Ever Be

I do not want to write some article on some “thing”, or some relevant story about what’s happening in the world, especially the United States. The times have been utterly exhausting, and you deserve better- or different at least.

So, this blog is done with the linear. It’s done being tamed. It’s everything but what it is. It’s beyond nothing. It’s beyond beyond nothing. It isn’t something.

So guess what? Clam slam dyno power, fig trouser saute, Frenchie, taco truck error. I’m invisible. I’m a shepherd.

Maybe there are infinite gods…


It Could Be The Most Important Question

Photo by Hans Vivek on Unsplash

I have volunteered, helped people, raised a family, have thought deeply and have tried to live an adventurous life. But, I still struggle with purpose. There is a part of me that isn’t satisfied; there is a voice telling me I could be more, I could do more, etc.

I look around and see evidence of my existence: the garbage and recycling bins are full- I am here, no question there. I’ve worked hard my whole life: jobs, creative projects, the daily grind. I’ve made stuff that will still exist long after I’m…


Owning Someone Isn’t Love

Divorce rates have increased since the mid 1800s.

  • Divorce rates steadily increased from the mid-1800s to the 1950s.
  • The biggest increase in divorces was between the ’60s and ‘70s.
  • Since the turn of the 21st century, divorce has been on the decline, thanks to Milennials (yet the verdict is still out).

Broken homes (from failed marriages) can cause serious damage to children, which makes this topic especially worth contemplating. My parents divorced when I was 9 years old and it was devastating. Why does splitting up have to be negative or devastating? …


Balancing Creative Output And Avoiding Burnout

I am often tempted to take on more than I can handle: work load, creative endeavors, projects, chores, and goals. But at the end of the day, and throughout the day, if I’m not happy and enjoying the process then whats the point?

The journey is all we’ve really got.

Distressed thoughts permeate my mind:

  • I’m not doing enough.
  • I should write an e-book.
  • I should finish that film project.
  • I should just focus on recording a new album.
  • I should travel more and work from abroad.
  • I should organize every single damn thing…
