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 !
My son made a comment a few days ago that triggered a long discussion about the differences between generations and the impact that technology has on how people behave. In today's monologue I explore a little of the generational differences between people, the impact that electronic technology is having on human health (although I didn't say anything about orthopedic problems like spinal and posture related issues) and how we have allready witnessed the last of the Pre-Digital Generations. I also posit that a time is coming in the not too distant future, when there will be no one left who remembers life without electronics and explore what that might mean for humanity.

Today's monologue is dedicated to Darci, for her courage in exposing the human condition for what it is ! Thanks Darci for your very kind donation, for your ongoing support and for being so incredibly authentic ! You have that rare gift of 'soulful nakedness' that speaks so much of the strength within you and which I find inspiring !
We all know what it feels like to be alone or to feel lonely. Many of us also know what it means to feel unfulfilled. In today's monologue I explore how we all seek that something more to take away our loneliness and fulfil our lives.
This was one of those few monologues where I actually felt I needed to talk about a certain subject but I otherwise had no idea where I was going with it.
'Scuse the wind early on and the absent mindedness now and then, as I connect with the world around me. Oh and watch out for the snake I nearly walk upon !
In this TSM I reflect on the death of my friend Tom
I could have talked about the Buddhist perspective of seeing visions close to death but instead I talked a little about visions as archetypal projections. It would be nice to hear from anyone who has had similar experiences of witnessing or being part of these with a dying person.
Some reflections on spending time with my dying friend Tom and the experience of cancer and dying.
For those who asked, yes he did die – on the 6th December. And I do not know if he saw the ETs I asked to visit him.
In this meandering monologue I reflect on Toa's recent seizures, talk about my experience of being with my dying friend, stroll past lots of kangaroos and talk a little about relationship styles and the concept of developmental assets.

The following is a small reading from my book on consciousness, as written through the “higher dimensional aspect” that calls it’s self Alapo (which has in common the root for this name of the Syrian city of Aleppo). I’ve been writing it by hand, so it was very hard reading my own squiggly, illegible writing. Bear with me as I make a few mistakes and miss a few words here and there. I think it will give you a flavour of what is to come.
This book is an experiment in opening one’s self up to other aspects (see TSM17).
WARNING : Don’t listen to this podcast without first hearing the warning at the beginning.
What follows in TSM17 is a discussion about how I developed a process for exploring the self and in particular an idea I call Aspects of Self. It’s still an idea in progress but it’s one I think has great merit and potential for helping people to transform their lives and their understanding of the nature of reality.
I think it was Carl Jung who said something like “where the mystic is swimming, the schizophrenic is drowning”. And it’s in this spirit that I offer you this deeply personal monologue about my perception of self.
Please let me know if this monologue meant anything to you. And a brief warning, I do use the F word at some tourists ! Sorry , no long haired peace nick here ! I’m all out of patience with annoying tourists ! I also had to edit out some comments I made about a particular book I own and perhaps I ought to have edited out more.
In this monologue I take you on a schizophrenic tour to a discussion about identity and how our identity lay at the foundation of WHO WE THINK WE ARE !
