The Something Monologues

TSM139 : The Importance of Human Drama

All spiritual traditons emphasize the importance of freeing ourselves from drama because drama causes suffering. I beg to differ. Drama helps us to grow and suffering is OK. In today's walky, I explore the importance of human drama and how drama reshapes our entire identity and experience of being human.

TSM134 : Deepening the Well of Experience

In previous monologues I've suggested that real spiritual development has nothing to do developing super powers or transcending the body and everything to do cultivating awareness of mind and body and living fully within the body. In today's walk and talk, I explore some of the same ground I explored in TSM 108 - suggesting how we might move through our senses deep into the body and integrate all that arises into our awareness and in so doing, deepen the well of experience.

For those who are interested in learning ET contact, might I suggest you begin by learning how to deepen the well of experience. Begin with the body and the body will grow !

TSM119 : Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are

We all struggle to live fully present in the moment. Many people are trapped with their memories and with the pain assoccertiated with them. Today I explore the impact of the past with a metaphor that Meat Loaf / Jim Steinman made famous and how we can overcome the things that haunt us or preoccupy us.
 
Enjoy folks !

PS. I havent heard the song in ages and after reading the lyrics tonight, I realised I misunderstood what a small part of the song was about. But the metaphor is still relevant and a powerful one at that. This is one of Meat Loaf's / Jim Steinman's most powerful songs from what may have been his best album (on par with Bat Out of Hell).

TSM118 : We’re All Waiting For Something

We're all waiting for something ? But what is waiting ? Why should we wait and when should we move  ? Waiting may well be the one great virtue we must all learn to master.

Enjoy !

TSM71 : Analytical Thinking and Learning to Feel Through Engagement

In this morning's monologue I talk a little about how we are conditioned by our traditional education to practice analytical thinking but we learn little about feeling - an awareness of our emotions or physical feelings. I suggest a couple of ways to change how you experience people and objects, through an awareness of the felt experience of the engagement.
