TSM141 : Filters Through Which Humans Perceive Contact with the ‘Other’

I recently read Robbie Graham’s excellent book UFOs’ : Reframing the Debate https://www.amazon.com/UFOs-Reframing-Debate-Robbie-Graham/dp/1786770237 and felt the need to explore the theme of how we perceive contact with the “other”, while out walking. When I listened to this monologue I realised it was so full of wind, that I’d have to can it (which is something I’ve done to about 20 monologues). But given it’s a long one (1:45:50) I decided to keep it. So please be warned, it’s full of wind in places and there was nothing I could do to prevent it or edit it out.

In this walk I take up the issue of how humans perceive and make sense of contact with the other. We could call the other ET but it’s not always clear at the time or after, that that’s exactly what it is. I ask how conditioning, belief, perception and self awareness determine how we make sense of an experience. I also suggest that these things change across the human life cycle (brain freeze – I couldn’t articulate this clearly at the time : http://winstonwuttunee.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page_2171.html) and suggest that every human being having an experience sits at a certain point in the developmental cycle and as a result interprets the experience in a certain way

The point I try to emphasise is that how we perceive and the level of self awareness that we have, both determine how we see the world and how we interpret our experiences.

I suggest that contact with the other is leading us to a greater understanding of the self and reality. This understanding is helping us to grow in a way that helps us to engage more fully with the intelligence of the other.

Hang in there !

Bright. 😉

TSM137 : Entanglement, Human Identity, Aspects of Self, Channeling and Spiritual Development

How do we know what we know ? Part of how we know is by knowing what we are. In today’s walk and wonder, I explore the idea that we can know things beyond ourselves because we are more than we think we are. Not everything appears to follow causality (cause and effect), as entanglement and spooky action at a distance would suggest. Or is causality always present – visible from many different perpectives ? When we embrace a wider perspective about what we are (through such ideas as Aspects of Self and Channeling and by deepening the well of experience), we can know much more than we would normally think is possible. What is in the way of such knowledge and experience, is our ignorance and our desire to remain comfortable in our identities.

Enjoy ! 😉

You Sexy Thing

Two questions :

What is it that makes you uniquely you ?

What is the you, that takes you to be you ?

Please don’t be afraid ! Let the world hear you !

 

TSM135 : What is the Self ? The 5 Aggregates and Process Fields

In today’s walk and talk I explore the self through the Buddhist concept of the 5 Aggregates and Process Fields (my own idea, which is simlar to Alfred White Northhead’s Process Philosophy) and ask how we are to live when we can embrace a wider concept of self.

During the early part of this walk, I examine two dead sheep – who provide a real life example of the nature of the self. Don’t look if images of death frighten you. These things are a part of my day to day reality and reguarly remind me of the nature of the self.

More on the 5 Aggregates here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skandha and Process Philosophy here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_philosophy / https://archive.org/details/AlfredNorthWhiteheadProcessAndReality.

May your contemplations be grand and illuminating ! 😉

 

 

TSM128 : Direct Knowing

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 !

TSM100 : The Illusion of a Singular Physical Self & the Microbiomes Within

As someone who has always been obsessed with microbial life, I have been fascinated with how microbes play a role in every single ecosystem – including within our bodies. A recent discussion with Dude about the human need for Round Worms and Thread Worms (yes you read correctly), led us to an interesting exploration of Microbiomes and how modern humans have disturbed their natural bodily systems.

In today’s monologue I explore what it means to have a singular physical self, in view of the fact that we contain countless biomes – made up of organisms from the 5 kingdoms (Monera, Fungi, Protista, Plantae, Animalia) and the potential implications that these microbiomes have for our mental/emotional and physical health and ability to communicate with the other parts of us.

Enjoy ! B. 😉

Thinking Allowed

I dedicate this post to Sandor for all his ongoing support and kindness. Thank you my friend ! 😉

I’ve always admired Jeffrey Mishlove for his extensive work on parapsychology, consciousness and related subjects. He’s been in this game far longer than most people and he continues to do interesting work, interviewing people from all walks of life – who have unique perspectives that have something to offer all of us. One of his great achievements is his book The Roots of Consciousness, which you can read here : http://www.williamjames.com/Intro/CONTENTS.htm. I can’t recommend it enough ! I’ve been following Jeffrey’s work for a long time and I think his interviews and books are one of the most interesting things on the internet.

You can find more related to Jeffrey and his work here :

Jeffrey has two You Tube channels – Thinking Allowed (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_Dyl25HoYRQ7ARKRadHeRg) and New Thinking Allowed (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFk448YbGITLnzplK7jwNcw/videos). The following is a selection of some of Jefferey’s recent and older interviews. The one’s I find most interesting are related to sub personalities (see video 2 and 14 / TSM 17 is also related to the subject : http://thesomethingmonologues.podbean.com/e/tsm17-aspects-of-self-a-revolutionary-technique-for-developing-self-awareness/).

Sit back with some yummiees, a cuppa and enjoy ! 😉
