One thing I’ve wanted to do from the very beginning of Phalanx is to create a site that focuses on the positive. No, the world isn’t always or often a rosy place. It’s tough. But with guts and determination, we all possess the power to overcome and mold our own lives for the better.
Phalanx doesn’t care about politics (which, in my view, is a Satanic force). We don’t want to be drawn into it. And, unlike so much of politics that we see on TV today, we don’t care about race or gender, etc., etc. We care about spirit. And we care about the struggle to overcome and to improve ourselves.
In that spirit, we’ve always looked at different traditions, from Asian martial arts to Freemasonry, from paganism to modern thinkers such as Camus, and from the Taoism to Islamic theology. I don’t claim to know everything, but I’ve also endeavored to write from my experience as a practitioner of martial arts, a spiritual practitioner, a writer and an author of three books.
I believe it is time for us all to try to uplift each other in the face of a system that seems increasingly to want to divide and to drag down. My hope is that, no matter who you are, you will find something in Phalanx to improve your life, and that you will endeavor to help improve the lives of others. If so, you are not just a reader. You are a part of Phalanx.
If you are interested in contributing, please message us. Phalanx will be staying the course, focusing on how we can improve ourselves mentally, physically, and spiritually.
