I have returned home to Toronto after spending much of the last eighteen months in hospitals. I am hoping that my health has improved to the point where I can start producing original content again. Thank you to all who are watching for your support over the course of this trying time. I hope that you all are coping with the COVID crisis successfully.

Having studied Mishlei (proverbs) in the Artscroll Edition finding it both truly enigmatic and fundementally liberating and empowering. Thrilled, but thrilled that you are back on the block and looking forward to Beyond Order ver much indeed, hope I am ready for It, the sjw brigade must be quaking in their boots.

Jordan, we love you're genuiness, you're intelligence, your empathy, relatability, perseverance and humility. We're glad you're doing much better.
Stay strong. You help people who are and have also been in similarly dire straits. You're work helps give people courage to press on.
We ALL need it as much as you needed to write it. Stay blessed, praying for you and your family.

Chemical dependancy is usually treated in the medical community by substitution, not withdrawal. In other words, JP will be fed a new addiction, and will appear to tell us he is cured from that evil 'benzo'....never mentioning that he is now addicted to something slightly different. Hey, welcome to the merry-go-round. I am not surprised that those visits to Joe Rogan could offer little help. Maybe try Graham Hankock.... he is just fine now (LOL) after being 'cured' by ayahuasca. Hancock is no longer stark raving mad, he is only mad now. I could offer advice, but some people are worth that effort and some are not. Hats off to his daughter, a family connection is better than being alone with addiction. Some people are born with common sense... others attempt to develop that trait and fail. I have heard it said that religion is the "last refuge" of the desperate, when all else fails.... and logic offers no answers to the deaf/blind. Jordan..what do you think of "stone gazing" where one gazes at stones in a hat until treated with revelation? It's a religion, it might fit you.

I will stop at nothing to preserve this jewel of a man! Let it be known that I was a young caterpillar, wriggling in the dirt. Now, after Dr. Petersun, or as I call him, Father, wrapped me up in a cocoon, I await my emergence as a beautiful butterfly! My chrysalized soul has been waiting for its time to emerge... and it is now! Now that Dr. Peterson has returned, the world has found order at last! I will inject his word salads straight into my bloodstream and see all the archetypes of man! At long last I will become a true special boy that is ready to find my way in a world of chaos.
Cheers, Father.

Jordan, since you are in a weakened state, the Covid you have now may have an effect on you for months afterward. I was exhausted and run down and suffered from depression for 5 months after I got over Covid. Don't give up, Jordan. Sometimes life can hand you one thing after another health wise, my husband and I have been through a lot. But don't give up hope, It will pass eventually and you will bounce back. You are so loved by so many. God is with you. Hold your face up to His light even if for the moment you cannot see.

Getting humbled sure doesn't feel good, does it Dr Peterson? And the internet is about as shitty a place as when you left. Maybe worse. From such great heights...
Yep. Ah well, I'm not a published author, haven't sold a single book but Ecclesiastes always helps me when I'm feeling down. To paraphrase:
**"it's better to go to a funeral than to a party for at the funeral is the grave, where we all end up. So perhaps we can learn something there. At the party is only pretentious laughter like the sound of dried thorns crackling in a fire."**
Be well, Jordan. The path of thorns you've chosen has many dark lessons for you, I'm guessing. Things most will never understand. But, perhaps you are the person who can bring that darkness... those, giant pearls, or shall we say, unsavory morsels, to public light and make them somewhat palatable? (you can perhaps see now why I haven't sold any books!) Anyhow, your role has changed. Will you change with it or cling to what was? Again, best wishes and my sincere prayers for your soul. May the Holy Spirit shine *gently* upon you. May it *gently* guide you without overwhelming you. God bless. Take care...

You are a brother and a lamplight in what can seem an ink black world at times. I understand and empathize with your situation having been altered permanently by medication necessary to make the now bearable even if the future be damned. I occupy that hell. In what seemed an endless and fruitless search for intellect and reason, I found you. I have no heroes and celebrity worship is the fetid stinking result of vapid acquired ignorance; Yet, here you are, a star. A person, a man, a husband, a father and still giving to those you don’t even know. You already have cultivated a legacy beyond what most will ever achieve. You have improved the lives of countless, invisible and voiceless people. Dr. Jordan Peterson, you are as wonderfully flawed and broken as the rest of us, and well worthy of all of the love and support you need to get back to yourself. Thank you, for everything, and thank you to your family, for sharing you.

If only i had access to Jordan's advise about the sources of "meaning" in life when i was young. My whole life would have gone differently (and way better). Instead i sabotaged my potential for a good life by valuing the wrong things. I had no mentors. Even intellegent people can lack wisdom and steer themselves wrong.

Dear Prof. Peterson!
You need to get in touch with the living G'D, the G'D of Abraham, Isaac and Jacov! HE also is the Father of the Jewish Messiah Jeshua. Read HIS Words! Talk to HIM! SEARCH HIM and HE WILL touch you in your inner man. In fact: HE will give you a totally new spiritual existence which Jeshua refers to as "new birth" in the book of John chapter 3 in the "Brit ha Chadascha"! HE is the ROCK on which our life can depend in trust and for eternity! I'll pray for you! May HIS PEACE and GRACE bring you to the new birth in HIM!🕊🕊🕊

Man, Benzo's (Xanax, Valium, etc) are some of the hardest drugs to kick, AND they are the MOST commonly prescribed medication. That is just so sad. If you look on Google about this drug, essentially all answers are saying "their fine, long term use is relatively safe, they are regarded as safe etc" it makes my blood boil, these fucking pharmaceutical companies creating incalculable suffering, then rationalize it with their ideology w/ the small cases of help provided, in relation to the damage they cause, is justifiable.

I am a fan of you living in South Korea. First of all, I apologize for my short English

In South Korea, reverse discrimination among men is rampant. In addition to self-esteem, there are radical feminists who think that being born as a man is a sin.
If even a little bit of men say their opinions, the man is branded as macho online and subjected to comment terrorism. Social laws are often judged in favor of women.
This seems to be a global trend. I am very happy to know someone like you in this situation. Thank you.

I have had health issues and gone through two bouts of depression. I now live with chronic sadness. Mr Peterson has offered advice which was of comfort. I’d like to offer some advice which I hope will be of comfort.
Mr Peterson’s work has helped countless people. The outcome of that help is love for Mr. Peterson. Mr Peterson should take that love and let thé love comfort him as he heals and gets stronger.
Mr. Peterson please take the time to get all your strength back fully and completely. I would be sadden if you were to crash again because you worked too hard too fast.
I wish Mr Peterson continued recovery and strength. I include him in my prayers when I pray to my Ma. There’s nothing like having an Italian mama lobbying for you with the Boss ;) .

This is a plandemic. Everything that is happening right now such as the Corona Virus has been planned by the Elites, the billionaires, and millionaires such as bill gates and much more, which are Satan worshippers. who run this world. They want to create a new world order out of chaos. They want to reduce the world population. It is on the United Nations Agenda 21, the Georgia Guidestones, and even on the one dollar bill. They had all of this planned out before it even happened. They want to have a digital currency where they implant mandatory chips into people. Through this chip they will be able to alter your DNA sequence, they will be able to control you. You will lose your God-given Freedoms to live free on this earth. you will no longer be human. They want to create a one-world currency, and a one-world government out of chaos. And for this to happen they want to crash the current economy and dollar, and they want to create chaos, in order to control us. Please Do Not Take The Corona Virus Vaccine that is Coming. I pray that the American people and people all over the world. wake up. Wake Up. If you know the ingredients inside that vaccine which will come with a chip containing nanotech which they will be able to alter your DNA Sequence, track you, and much more, you will never want that to enter your Body. as a human being. Forgive me if I offend you. I want people to wake up Wake up. I thank you for reading this comment Through. God Bless You in Yeshua(Jesus) Name.
