I've decided to be myself, and speak my mind, and drop some masks.
I first set up this website with the intention of starting a computer security consultancy. The only problem was, I didn't really want to do that. I thought maybe I did, having been a counter-cultural nerdy computer hacker type who read books like Steven Levy's Hackers and the Knightmare's Secrets of a Super Hacker.
Ultimately, I realized I did not want to do that. I've learned the hard way not to neglect where Spirit is leading me. It will surprise no one that my reasoning was partly motivated by money. Money for the sake of accumulation when I had such a negative view of both rich people and global capitalism. But now I say will full sincerity, who am I to judge?
I thought about going back into academia for an entire minute. But as I alluded to before, I feel called to higher work.
So now I am trying to make my way through this world by helping people reconnect with their hopes and dreams, get whatever help they need, and live their best lives. This world needs a lot of healing right now. Let's see what we can do to help each other.
The best thing I have to offer is perhaps just a different perspective, as someone who has changed his thinking and changed his outlook on life, as someone who has committed his life to peace and loving-kindness, building community, turning enemies into friends, and affirming life and liberty for all people, regardless of race, creed, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any other aspect of our story that people might use to artificially divide us.
I feel called to ministry, to help others however I can, to hold them in the Light of Love. I feel called to hold fast to the vision of Peace and Loving Community, of Mercy and Compassion, of Forgiveness and Reconciliation.
I have no energy for fighting, and I can't live in a state of perpetual anger anymore. My anger was killing me for far too long. I want to help others heal as I've healed. I want to uplift others so we can help each other find our way forward together, because we are stronger together.
So this anti-professional professional vanity website is one-part calling card and one-part spiritual tirade, perhaps could be thought of as an experimental art piece.
It is my hope and prayer that you are uplifted in reading this.
