Welcome

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Realize! , a website with a simple premise:

You are much more than you seem to be,

and

Everything around you is a tool
to help you realize your full potential.

All my life, I've been turning my mind to the deeper things of life.  I have explored the fields of religion, philosophy, literature, and history.  In addition, I read as broadly as time permits in the sciences, and I try to keep abreast of current events.  I have also spent seven of the last nine years living in Asia, where I've been digging deeply into Eastern culture.

Now, at age 50, I have formulated my own philosophy.  Realize! is a forum in which I can share my thoughts with others who, like me, are interested in things that really matter.

I hope you'll join me.  The best way to do so is to go to The Journal and bookmark it for regular--even daily--visits.  You may also wish to learn more by reading these foundational essays.  Either way, I hope you will share this journey with me.

Peace,
James Baquet
Founder of Realize!
