Welcome to "Weapons of Depth"! This cyber-column will carry articles about spirituality, and the New Age, observations on life, personal reflections, philosophical speculations, small bits and pieces of history, book reviews, whatever comes into my head to write. Occasionally, it will carry articles by "guest writers." Naturally, the purpose of this column, which should be regularly updated with new pieces - (once a week?, once every two weeks?, we’ll see) - is to provide you, the reader, with a steady stream of engaging, stimulating, and thought-provoking articles, which will enrich your life, and help you, either directly or indirectly, on your own path, towards your own dreams and goals.

(NOTE: Articles designated with a "GA" after the title are "Guest Articles", written by invited guests. All other articles are written by me - J Rainsnow. Naturally, the views expressed in Guest Articles are those of the author, and do not necessarily coincide with mine.)
