The Something Monologues

TSM154 : Remembering Susy

Today's second monologue is a bit different because it's intensely personal.

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday and to honour her memory I offer this reading of a few of her letters, so that you might know a little of who she was.

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 !

TSM131 : Memory, Uncertainty & Doubt in the ET Contact Experience

The things in this monologue were probably the hardest things I've ever spoken about publicly.

Today, I open up and share my thoughts about memory, uncertainty and doubt in the ET contact experience, looking at two of my own experiences 23 years apart. I explore how contact with beings from elsewhere shatters your experience of reality and talk about why I think most people who have contact, avoid talking about uncertainty and doubt and why these things are really critical to making sense of the experience. I post this monologue with some hesitation but do so because I belive that we need to be as honest and transparent as we can be, if we are to truly understand the experience of human-ET contact.

There is some repetitive noise in the early part of the recording due to my shoes squeaking and the squeaking on my iPod cover.

TSM81 : Audio as a medium for story telling

In today's wofflathon, I lead you through some thoughts about the value of the audio medium for story telling. In so doing I discuss why we share stories and podcasts, what's behind our drive to tell stories and to share them, the value of stories, the power of audio stories, audio as a carrier of memory, sharing through audio, audio signatures of places, people, animals and plants and the engineering of soundscapes.

TSM75 : The Nature of Thought

Well, this monologue is different ! Stay focused, as you endure my cat meowing incessantly and the wind blowing against my iPod. 

In this monologue I attempt to lead you through a discussion about the nature of thought - touching on such subjects as simple and discursive thought, thought forms, process fields, thought and the 5 senses, memory, emotional feelings, felt sense in the body, beliefs, values and action. This is probably a monologue worth doing again under quiet conditions, with a more detailed exploration of the link between thoughts, ideas, projection and reactivity - which I didn't really touch on in this monologue. 

This monologue sketches out the way that the human mind works - weaving thoughts out of silence and how thought can take us out of the present moment.

TSM66 : Methods for Enhancing Memory

In this monologue I explore several methods for enhancing memory. A subject of great importance to me as I get older.

TSM59 : Body memory, Suppression vs Expression and Collective Memories

In this monologue I talk about the memory of the body and how we function by suppressing feeling or expressing feeling and how we are all affected by collective memories and how collective memories affect us.

TSM37 : Tom’s Death

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. 

Enjoy, Bright.

TSM15 : The Gaps We Leave Behind

In this brief dialogue (yes it really is brief !), I talk a little about the gaps we leave behind. Let me know your opinion on this subject !


Happy listening !

TSM13 : The Reindeer Incident, Remembrance Day, My Morning Routine and How it Feels to Have Tumours

A morning monologue in which I talk about my most sacred scar, having 11-11 as a birthday, how I prepare myself for the day and what the experience of having tumours feels like.





Many Cowabungas to you !

Bright.
