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 !
Enjoy ! 😉

Today’s second monologue is a bit different because it’s intensely personal.
Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday and to honour her memory I offer this reading of a few of her letters, so that you might know a little of who she was.
Be warned, the wind has ravaged me yet again on today’s walk and I tell you what, it’s really pissing me off ! I couldn’t tell how the wind was with this recording until I returned home. I was tempted to scrap it but given how long it took, I decided to keep it. I’m afraid you’ll just have to cope with the wind when it flares up, if you wish to listen to today’s monologue.
In today’s rambleathon I talk a little about the two ET worlds I’ve been taken to visit, the problem of what to do when there is too many living beings of one type type or another and the meaning of peace in our lives. I don’t offer any solutions to the issues of species numbers and peace but urge you to consider how we actually are with these things and how each one of us may come to a place of finding solutions to these things.
This TSM is very short by my normal standards and really speaks for itself. This TSM is a kind of intro for the next one about friendship.
Last Saturday I went for a 20 km mountain bike ride through the bush and on my way out, I popped in to visit a local farmer/friend. While there John let me visit the old sheep shed and record the following audio as I walked through. The power ran out on my iPod, so what you get is what you get ! I thought of posting this as a TSM but it was pretty windy inside the shed and so parts of this turned out pretty dodgy ! I have a whole bunch of audio from my travels and TSMs that I’ve scraped, that would otherwise end up in my shit heap, never to be heard. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if this was worthy of hearing or better off in the shit heap !
PS. I have been thinking that next year I might begin a small podcast called The Something Dialogues 😉 . As part of the podcast, I’d like to include a series of interviews with Aboriginal people I’ve worked with in various communities across the state. The aim of the podcast would be to meet with and interview cutting edge thinkers and people with fascinating personal stories. For now it’s just an idea. Gotta see how I can juggle my time.
Hey folks, this is the monologue I stuffed up a while back. Sorry for the delay.
In this walky talky, I explore the concept of shamanism in ordinary life, as opposed to shamanism in traditional indigenous life or plastic shamanism. This view of shamanism might differ from others that you’re familiar with but I think you see that it overlaps with some of the ideas inherent in traditional shamanism, except that I’ve given them a modern twist – without the need for entheogens, pain, music, ritual or rights of passage experiences. I do however talk a little about some initiatory experiences (including a few of my own) and the purpose behind some of these. I also explore the relationship of dreams to shamanism and dream symbolism and describe a simple method for interpreting dream symbols and for interacting with the external world through symbols that we can see in our minds.
Don’t listen to this if you’re after a comprehensive overview of shamanism. The purpose of this monologue is merely to highlight that it is possible to integrate a shamanic world view and shamanic type methods into the experiences of ordinary life. This is really just a very basic primer in working with mind and body as an interface between inner and outer worlds, to demonstrate that there really only is one indivisible whole. Kosmos.
Enjoy ! 😉
I’m putting TSM151 in front of the TSM150, as I accidentally deleted something from the final render of TSM151 and have to edit it again.
Those of you who are familiar with my blog or the TSMs will know that I rarely give you a direct and full explanation of how to make ET contact. Instead I sketch out the many different aspects of self awareness that will help you make contact. (I’ll give full descriptions in future contact audio and in the contact book).
In today’s night time monologue (which was made during a light contact session – that is, one at the end of a long tiring day), I give you a simple overview of another way of making contact using the life force. Some people will get this and some people won’t !
In addition I share a little about what I learned about a new race via a telempathic contact session I had the night before (which also included seeing a series of blinkers).
Perhaps in a later TSM I can detail exactly how I came to develop this method of interacting and the steps I went through to prove to myself that it was real.
It’s my wish to continue interacting with this race and at some point perhaps I’ll be fortunate enough to have face to face contact with them. I’ll keep you posted regarding anything else I learn about them !
This particular race, apparently come from a world that orbits a blue star – which I assume is what we call a Blue Giant (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_giant). Blue Giants are some of the hottest stars that we know and are thought by most people to have lifeless planets. Perhaps however, we are wrong about this and habitable planets may exist in a region that is a long way out from the star. I don’t know. All I know is that I was very surprised by what I was told ! I guess it’s a question for Dude ! 😉
The key for me, to all of these interactions, is not to judge whether they are definitively real or not but to write everything down and to compile my experiences for myself. So that over time I can check information against information and come to a final conclusion if and when I have a face to face contact with them, or others meet them and make similar comments about who they are. Sometimes these experiences are very powerful emotionally and continue after seeing lights in the sky !
Enjoy ! 😉
Unfortunately I had to scrap the last 4 TSMs due to the wind rendering them almost unlistenable. I may post some of them as scraps, in the next few weeks.

In today’s walky talky I introduce you to a couple of very simple ways to work with energy. Before this monologue really gets going I have the pleasure of observing an Eastern Brown Snake (one of 20 or so resident brown snakes on the property/creek line), who made an unexpected appearance as I sat on a log talking.
In the intro to this discussion I talk a little about my own historical interest in the subject of energy. You maybe surprised to learn that I do not think much of any popular ways of understanding energy (Indian, Chinese and Robert Bruce models to name a few but I do believe that aspects are correct). I once asked the Teal’hia to explain how energy works in the human body and they presented me with a model that was very different to any ancient or modern system that I’d heard of. This only re-enforced my scepticism of these systems.
After saying a little about my own interest in the subject, I give you some examples of internal and external methods for working with energy. This is a very simple overview but I think it will give you some insight into other ways of viewing energy work.
Enjoy ! 😉

PS. Hopefully I can get some video of my little snake friend soon ! Till then, here’s another !
In this walky talky, I explore the notion that we can actually walk without distraction or the desire to label. I’ve been an avid walker for 37 years and it’s my desire to encourage you to share in the joy of walking.
WARNING : Sony Walkman, Michael Jackson and Motley Crue make an appearance in this monologue ! 😉
In this late night talk, I explore the idea of how our stories shape our identity. One of the great mistakes we humans make, is to mistake ourselves or misidentify ourselves with who we think we are. And who we think we are is either our stories or some transcendent jewel ! On the one hand you are not your story but on the other hand you are. More than each, you are both.
I was very tired when I made this monologue and unfortunately my battery died, while I talked for another 20 minutes unaware and got up close and personal with 3 possums who were having a fight ! So the monologue ends abruptly. But I think you’ll understand where I was going.
