A Magnificent Fraud: thirty-five years dreaming - a spiritual autobiography; a tale of (re)awakening to the sacred.

The Big Questions - Self-realisation

This website is about probing the big questions of life:

Who am I? Why am I here? What should I become? How do I know? Where am I going? Why should I care? What is our fate? How am I free? How do I live a good life? Why is there suffering? Can I, should I, be happy?

What does it mean, to say something is sacred? And how is asking such questions relevant to everyday life?

This section is an evolving dialogue, between you and I. Ask a question.
