WELCOME

MusingMind is a curation of writing, reading & videos; an inventory of contemplative content at large. Grounded in philosophy, the core ethos is to inspire new & reinvigorate ancient ways of experiencing life.

THE SCOOP

A developing cross between metaphysics and journalism, MusingMind is a digital index of thoughtful, diverse, human responses to the upsettingly vast quagmires of life. Spanning my eclectic writing to collections of books and quotes, the inventory is a record of what I find interesting. Built into every nook of this site, these bites of interestingness tend to gravitate around life’s metaphysical pickles, and I’d like for the MusingMind to evolve into a feast of this variety.

I don’t have many answers, most 20-something-year-olds who think they do tend to be full of crap anyway. What I do believe is that consciousness is the architect of our perceived world, and we can nourish this mental environment by gooming – aimlessly perusing – the infinite fractals of wisdom buried all around us that I’m only beginning to discover. This is the core ethos behind The Musing Mind, seeking to unfetter and open-source this ponderous path. ​

My ulterior motive is to form a collective, bound by curiosity – a digital salon, of sorts – jiving off each other, enriching our myriad trips of inquisition.
