My name is Austin Ricketts. I’m a recovering Luddite, who is attempting to find his place in the 21st century. I’m sort of a Jack-of-all-ideas. I enjoy pondering just about anything. My particular interests are Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Art, and Culture. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and a Master’s degree in Religion.
Religion might seem like a narrow topic: God and rituals that revolve around God. I want to show how broad Religion actually is.
If I move out through mind, the One carries me; if I move out through feeling, the One carries me; if I move out through will, the One carries me; if I do not move but simply am, the One carries me. And the One cannot be any of these distinctions, because the One must be the transcendent foundation of all distinction.
The One, or God, is the foundation of all things. Life then is a footnote to God.
