    After many years of prayer and therapy I wish to use ancient philosophy to help others. We live at a time of tremendous change. The only constant in this life is change. This book is dedicated to the young the forgotten generation. Many may find this narrow door approach to life boring. Yet if you're looking for a Peace of Mind you must begin to unplug. I will not try to convert you 2 my way of thinking but possibly a healthier method of musing. After years of using over the counter drugs to become a great writer, I almost lost my mind and my soul. I only pray this helps those of you who are seeking a mental freedom 2 this current revolution surrounding the globe. Socrates lived and died speaking the truth. What is the truth? What is a lie? Why are the rich still well rich and you still poor? Luck, chance, birth, etc. Why does the Church Tithe? Why is the Bible altered by the Rich to serve their interests? Do you really believe God wants us all to be homeless, hungry, starving? Why does marriage not work? Why does owning beget more debt? Why are elections jokes to the common sense and dignity of man? Why is there still racism? Why do we have The NBA, The NFL, NHL and NASCAR? Combining research, history, philosophy, religion and practical knowledge, Doc Lies Cole attempts to bring Socrates back to life? He beckons us to take the most important journey, the one blocked. The path to power is not through the barrel of a gun (Mao), but in the halls of your mind, of your soul. Tears Run Unlimited To Hope To the reader, You and I are living a lie. People, places and things are nouns until we put a “Truth” in them. In this book, well it is a hope you may not become a fool anymore. One philosopher wrote “The Anti-Christ.” This is the “Anti-Truth.” For in order for us to rise out of poverty, we must think, act, and improvise from a “Top Down” approach. This work is inspired by “Thieves By Law;” a documentary celebrating lives of the underworld. To continue seeking the “Truth”

    Edge of the Sacred – Jung Psyche...

    Does earth have spirit or soul? This is a question asked ever more frequently, especially by those interested in the future of the natural world and the development of consciousness. The alchemists said ‘the greater part of the soul is outside the body’, and indigenous cultures have felt that soul or spirit resides in Nature and the physical environment. Such notions have been dismissed by modernity as illusions, but we are beginning to have second thoughts about the animation of the earth. Science and rationality have not taught us how to love or care for the earth, and in the modern era the environment has been disrespected.  
    The mythic bonds to Nature such as those found in Aboriginal Australian cultures appear to have real survival value because they bind us to the earth in a meaningful way. When these bonds are destroyed by excessive rationality or a collapse of cultural mythology, we are left alone, outside the community of Nature and in an alienated state. In this state we do real damage to the environment, because it is no longer part of our spiritual body or moral responsibility.  
    Jung was one of the first thinkers of our time to consider the psychic influence of the earth and the conditioning of the mind by place. Inspired by his writings and those of James Hillman, the field of eco-psychology has arisen as a powerful new area of inquiry. "Edge of the Sacred: Jung, Psyche, Earth" contributes to global eco-psychology from an Australian perspective.
