In today's bloated (O man I feel full !) walkalogue, I explore the idea of the inner self / the inner life / the inner world or the internal self / internal life / internal world. I speculate on the nature of this strange separation between inner and outer, how inner and outer influence one another and some possible distinctions between the inner world of the body and the inner world of the mind. I ask how the conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind might exist and interact with one another and what the changing nature of the inner self means for our identity and our overall sense of self in life and death.
Well I lied. I couldn't help making one more TSM before I head off for a month. Today I'm housebound, resting up after toe surgery.
In this windless monologue I push further into the idea of causality (without going into the various definitions and philosophical interpretations), by looking at how causes and effects create causal chains and eventually causal trees and how we can create and explore life using this principle !
For those of you interested in the idea of karma (V pay attention here !), Causal Trees offer us the opportunity to choose the best possible karma, while accepting how things are and making healthier choices.
I think of the use of Causal Trees as a much better alternative to goal setting, using The Law of Attraction or any of the other waffle over emphasised by this or that channeler, The Secret or What the Bleep and their ilk.
I've tried to keep this discussion simple and I've used examples from my own life to illustrate how a Causal Tree can unfold within the possible future. I haven't however discussed the impact of Causal Trees on the development of Conjoined Spaces. I'll save that for another monologue.
Your thoughts are as usual, always welcome !
I dedicate this monologue to Sandor for his seemingly endless support for yours truly ! Thanks buddy for caring from so far away ! May you discover the light within !
Many of you have heard me talk about my experience of being taken to merge with the light on an ET craft in 2011. In today's monologue I ask "What Does the Light Want From Us ?" and suggest an answer. An answer that coincides with what I believe we ought to want from ourselves.
Enjoy Dudes and Dudettes !
In this Christmas monologue set just after midnight, I explore the die hard Good vs Bad ET Myth and try to offer another reason why space faring ETs do not fall into good vs bad categorization. I reflect a little on the Creation Myths of indigenous people in relation to Sky, Earth and Sea. And finally talk a little about the relationship between geography and inner and outer explorations of the soul - highlighting ascending, descending and horizontal explorations. Consider this an introduction to the more detailed subject of Spiritual Development and Spiritual Development and ET Contact, that I will explore at a later date.
I've had many talks with my ET friend Dude about the nature of reality and the self. In today's monologue I reflect on a recent talk, in which Dude put forward a metaphorical explanation for understanding all of a person's lives - their apparent past lives, future lives and parallel lives. I found Dude's explanation very confronting, especially when I sat down and thought about it's implications. It is my wish that Dude's explanation also pushes you way beyond your comfort zone. Dude offered this explanation, as an antidote to Buddhist ideas of a subtle self, reincarnating in and out of time.
And for those who may be wondering, Dude had a significant impact on my decision to abandon many Buddhist teachings and my beginning to question many of it's core doctrines.
Its is my wish that this monologue makes you deeply uncomfortable with many of our contemporary beliefs and encourages you to explore the potential implications of Dude's explanation. The implications are far reaching and potentially relate to everything that we know as reality.
This monologue might appeal to people with an interest in time travel, reincarnation, multiverses, the afterlife and the nature of the self.
In the first section of today's monologue I give you an update on a new treatment option I'm considering for my tumours. So you'll have to skip to the 19 minute mark to hear about Dude's ideas.
I've always envied people who were older than me and as I approach 50, I feel a real sense of excitement about where I'm at in life and what is to come. In this monologue I reflect on ageing, by exploring :
The negative baggage associated with physical and mental changes
Our fears of dying
The joy of ageing and old age
The importance of accepting ageing
The benefits of old age and why it's worth looking forward to getting older
The best and worst kinds of ageing
Transcending the fears associated with ageing and embracing the wonder of getting older
Moving through the passage of perpetual grief and growing through resilience
The choice we all have about how to age.
You wont find any sympathy or regret in this monologue.
You may wish to skip the first 23 minutes and my wishing to provide my sick sister with a means to fulfill a lifelong dream. I was having a hard time with her illness and seeing her suffering.
Relevant links :
I can't recommend the writings of Marie De Hennezel, particularly her books on dying and ageing. Unfortunately most of her books are in French but at least two of them are in English.

In this monologue I take you through the only two questions worth asking : Who/What am I ? and What is it that is asking 'Who/What am I ?'?.
