TSM134 : Deepening the Well of Experience

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 !

Enjoy ! 😉

 

TSM133 : The Body of Our Life’s Work and The Bodies of Work Within Our Life

What is life ?

In today’s monologue I explore the idea of the body of our life’s work and the bodies of work within our life. I explore how our life is the sum of all our life’s work and is reflected in the final moments of who we are in our life (or at any moment) and how at any moment we are working on a body of work, whether we are conscious of it or not. I speculate that we can consciously choose the bodies of work that fill our life – whether they are visible or invisible and suggest that a life well lived, is one in which we come to understand and develop some awareness of the nature of the bodies of work that we allow to fill our life.

My iPod gave a lot of trouble during this recording and I had to stitch together separate segments after it unexpectedly shut down. Forgive any repetition !

Enjoy ! 😉

TSM127 : An Introduction to the Buddha’s Teachings and Why They Are No Longer as Important to Me

In today’s walk in the big paddock, I introduce the core ideas behind the mystical Buddha’s teachings and talk a little about how my ET friend Dude changed my view of Buddhism and my own efforts to eliminate desire from my life.

Don’t be offended if you are a Buddhist. This monologue is an effort to simply Buddhism and make it easy to understand. It isn’t a critical treatise on significant doctrines but a gentle overview of what the Buddha may have been trying to get at.

Happy trails ! 😉

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 !

TSM118 : We’re All Waiting for Something

We’re all waiting for something ? But what is waiting ? Why should we wait and when should we move  ? Waiting may well be the one great virtue we must all learn to master.

Enjoy !

TSM115 : Connecting with the Dead (Communing Through the Veil)

I’ve tackled the subject of afterlife communication before (https://etandi.wordpress.com/2015/12/27/a-simple-method-for-meeting-the-dead/), so I thought I’d follow up with a basic introduction to the subject.

In today’s monologue I introduce you to two methods for connecting with the dead (connecting with the deaaaaaaaaaaaaaadddddddddddddd !) – using internal hearing (a simple form of telepathy) and an internal space.

With these methods you will be able to establish clear contact with any person who wishes to speak to you from beyond the veil we call death.

You can learn more about the Internal Contact World Method here :

A couple of corrections are required for this monologue. Percy B. Shelley lived in the Pre-Victorian era (I think it was in the Edwardian era – King Edward). And during internal contact, strictly speaking you cannot maintain the Calm Abiding state but you can minimise internal noise (mental activity) and use Calm Abiding as a precursor to starting an internal world contact session.

More on Calm Abiding here :

Please note that Calm Abiding or any type of centered meditation that excludes all mental activity is not necessary for contacting the dead (or ETs) but it can be useful. Perhaps of greater use is the process of relaxation taught by Dr Ainslie Meares (one of my heroes) in his wonderful book Relief Without Drugs (page 90 something) https://www.amazon.com/Relief-without-drugs-Ainslie-Meares/dp/B0007FTOJQ / http://stillnessmeditation.com.au/dr-ainslie-meares/.

Enjoy !
