Articles describing the tenor of my work.

Sorcerers understand discipline as the capacity to face with serenity odds that are not included in our expectations. For them, discipline is a volitional act that enables them to take anything that comes their way without regrets or expectations. For sorcerers, discipline is an art: the art of facing infinity without flinching, not because they are filled with toughness, but because they are filled with awe…. Discipline is the art of feeling awe.

Any manifestation of the universe, any way in which it behaves toward us, isn’t merely about us, isn'’t merely psychological, but is a movement of the universe. What happens to us, no matter what it is, connects us to everything, and in that connection, what can we feel but awe? A live world is in constant flux. It moves; it changes; it reverses itself. We try to defend ourselves against that, but we cannot. The only freeing response is awe.
