The Something Monologues

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 !

TSM95 : True Freedom, Relative Freedom and The Illusion of Freedom

Lots of people talk about freedom and the fight for freedom but just what the hell do they mean ? In today's monologue I explore 3 different aspects of freedom  - true freedom, relative freedom and the illusion of freedom. Don't expect to find any Ascension up any one's arse into the 5th dimension !  

In today's rambleathon I explore the concept of relative freedom, true freedom (which is freedom of choice), how labels (including religious labels, atheism, agnosticism, materialism/reductionism) and how our ideas, beliefs, roles and conditioning (family, race, education and religion) restrict our freedom and create further bondage.
