TSM113 : The Agony of the Human Condition - Part 2 : The Left Hand Path

The human condition is a strange beast and one that we all try to understand at some point in our life. The human condition is a condition of existence that is constantly in flux, where one thing always leads to another. Sometimes we experience things that we see as good (positive) and sometimes we experience things that we see as bad (negative). If we had perfect awareness we would probably only choose good things and omit bad things. But that isn't reality ! (As Buddha said we are all addicted to like and dislike). How boring life would be if everything unfolded exactly as we wanted it to ! So what then are the implications of experiencing bad things and what does it mean when we experience 'the left hand path' (the path less desired) ?

TSM110 : The Good vs Bad ET Myth, Creation Stories and Explorations of the Soul

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.

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.

TSM69 : Influences for Writers and Story Telling

In this monologue I fill in a little spare time, by talking about external and internal influences for writers and the craft of story telling. I explore how we can perceive the outer world and the inner world, as a means of collecting material for stories. I also look at how we can draw material for stories from the 3 primary states of consciousness - the waking state, the dreaming state and deep sleep state.

A few things I should clarify. 
I use the words inspiration and influences interchangeably, although technically they mean different things. Kenneth Slessor's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Slessor) El Alamein refers to his poem Beach Burial. I forgot to mention Judith Wright, an Australian poet I studied under Mr Campbell : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Wright.  Here's the Australian Raven : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_raven . The five sense doors plus the sixth (mind) : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayatana. Forgive the surplus so's ! My awareness was a little dim, as I shivered my way through this monologue !

TSM34 : Reflections on Spending Time with My Dying Friend

Some reflections on spending time with my dying friend Tom and the experience of cancer and dying.

https://app.box.com/s/3ahwxpxzmo8m80z2fp70r0ltzrtuj093

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.

Enjoy,

Bright.

TSM14 : Identity

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 !

Enjoy !

TSM 6 : Fishing Stories and Migrations

The Something Monologue No. 6 is a bit of a hasty reflection of things that I learned through fishing in 3 different countries and the nature of migration and what it taught me along the way. I think I might pick up both themes in another monologue. Feel free to share your own fishing, fish or fishy stories and some of your own migrations.

Thanks for all the encouragement and the support with this little spontaneous adventure. I’m enjoying this so much, I’ll keep going but I might slow down a little and from time to time, I might start thinking about what I’d like to talk about. Perhaps you have some suggestions ?

Enjoy !


PS. No. 7 has been recorded today but will have to wait to next week to be recorded !

PPS. The GETCRN is still in development and I haven’t forgotten to share more of my contact experiences or the contact audio series. I’m just enjoying something a bit different !

TSM5 : Stories, Their Value & Meaning & How ET’s & God See Our Stories

From now on I’ll be referring to The Something Monologues as TSM no x, y or z etc. I’ve also created a page where I’ll post the links to all the monologues.

In this monologue I talk a little about my experience of thinking about my own stories, listening to other peoples stories, how stories are just variations on the same themes, what our stories mean to us and to our cosmic family and what they mean to God.


Enjoy !
