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.

TSM121 : The Agony of the Human Condition – Part 3B : Recognizing and Honouring the Needs of the Daimon

I dedicate this monoluge to Frédéric for his ongoing support and to Mauren for her recent donation and for being a long time reader/listener ! Thank you both very much for reaching out to me and for making a difference and for showing your appreciation for what I have to share !

In today’s monologue I pick up from where I left in TSM114, exploring the Daimon and how we can recognize and honour the needs of the Daimon for a healthy and fulfilled life. After listening to this recording, I realised that I didn’t say enough about how to recognise the needs of the Daimon – so I might take that issue up in a future monologue. I might add as well, that I wonder if the Daimon has different needs at different times in the human life cycle.

For those of you who question whether or not a Daimon really exists as a distinct entity or aspect within us, I think that’s a reasonable thing to have some doubt about. My thoughts are that as an alternative to the traditional view of the Daimon, we consider that the Daimon is as a driving force, a set of urges that arises from the way different processes that arise from the interaction of mind and body. Think of it as a unique force of it’s own, that emerges from the interaction of mind and body. It may have a transcendant timless nature that exists beyond each individual life or be bound to each individual life. Perhps there are many possibilities. No one can prove or disprove the existance of the Daimon ! But each of us will know whether the idea resonates as true or false.

We might also consider that it’s nothing more than an idea ! An idea with great power !

Enjoy !  😉

PS. Apologies for being so slack on getting back to your comments. I’ve been very busy but will try to do so this week !

TSM80 : Choppy school, faith and trust in the power of life, The 5 Remembrances, life’s impermanance and uncertainty

In today’s monologue I explore the issue of faith and trust and reflect on what we can learn from young lambs and old ladies, about the power of will and our desire to live. I also reflect on the 5 Remembrances, life’s impermanence and uncertainty.

Ever

Ever

The cosmos is ever expanding
Always outwards
Always inwards

Out there
There is no boundary
Only the boundaries of our perceptions

In there
There is no boundary
Only the boundaries of our imagination

Between the inner and the outer
The infinite radiates God
In all forms

Where man sees separation and dimensions
God sees the unbroken whole of Self
All time within
All space within

Ultimate reality
Reflected in a single grain of sand
Reflected in a single drop of water
Reflected in a single breath of air
Reflected in a single strand of hair

Touch life
And we
Touch God

HE is always expanding
SHE is always expanding
IT is always expanding
Ever outwards
Ever inwards
It’s awareness knows no boundaries
It’s love is infinite
Everything that was and will be and might have been
A manifestation of the ONE

The Flux Itself

The Flux Itself

You are and are not
Constantly in the flux
You mistake yourself as a fixed entity
or a fixed set of processes
But you are neither …
You are the flux itself
the entity and the process
the blue and the sky
the black and the stars

Your youness is beyond the reach of words
You are a gathering of selves becoming I
A sense of I becoming I am

Your Iamness is beyond the reach of feelings
You are a cloud made of senses
A body of senses charging I am

Nothing remains as it was, is or will be
The flux the carrier of all impressions
The flux is the holder of all memory

Letting go of all structure
Letting go of all aspects of self
Letting go of all like and dislike
Letting go of all desire for the past, present or future

You encounter the flux
of all being and non being
And know the True Self
