About Scott

Liberation and freedom are things all humans desire. This is particularly true in context of spirituality.

In my experiences, with religions, organisations and even educational settings. I found myself lost in a systems of belief or culture norms. My aim as writer is to discuss possibilities beyond these parameters.

I honestly articulate my experiences through writing.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar and PTSD many years ago. It has offered different experiences and insights on how to manage poor mental health well. My blog is not about mental illness.

My blog offerers me a space for my creativity. My hope in sharing life’s challengers, is my writing may offer something helpful to others. With all the creativity and enjoyment writing has offered. I have been compelled to write a novel.

If we keep overestimating the pleasure and underestimating the pain they bring, we stay attached to them regardless of what, in an ultimate sense, we understand them to be. ‘ The integrity of Emptiness by Thanissaro Bhikkhu © 2006–2013 If you ask people what they most want in
