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 !
I dedicate this monoluge to Frédéric for his ongoing support and his enthusiasm for taking responsibility for his own development and for his efforts to be a better father, partner and human being ! I also dedicate this monologue to Astrid for her ongoing kindness and her continuous efforts (despite her own illness) to help others living and dead, to be free of their suffering !
In today's stroll through the land, I explore the process that some have called Direct Knowing. There are several interpretations of this concept and in this monologue I explore what you might think of as a lower level form of DK, that I believe has greater value to us in our ordinary life. I provide you with working examples of how to develop DK through all the senses and then through the collective 5 senses.
Expect to hear lots of talkative sheep !

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.
