TSM155 : Creating and Exploring Life with Causal Trees

11/27/2017
More
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...

TSM154 : Remembering Susy

11/23/2017
More
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.

TSM153 : A View of Two ET Worlds, Too Many Too Many and The Meaning of Peace

11/23/2017
More
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...

TSM152 : Friends From Far Away

11/8/2017
More
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 and some of the remarkable people I’ve met through my blog.

TSM150 : TSM150 : Shamanism in Ordinary Life

11/1/2017
More
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,...

TSM151 : Life Force ET Contact and An Introduction to the Trialtar People

10/16/2017
More
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...

TSM149 : Working with Energy

10/16/2017
More
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...

TSM148 : The Joy of Walking

9/21/2017
More
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 !

TSM147 : You Are and Are Not Your Story

9/21/2017
More
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...

TSM146 : The Relativity of Our Humanity

9/13/2017
More
In this monologue I introduce the idea that there is a relativity to our humanity. Many humans like to believe that we are more than human and that’s all, while others argue that we are merely a living organism and nothing more. I argue that we are both transcendent and ordinary ! Some people try so hard to be more than human and forget their humanness - at great cost ! While others revel and suffer in their humanness, ignorant of other aspects of their being. We humans also believe that...

TSM145 : The Cancer Personality

9/13/2017
More
Last Thursday and Friday I had a follow-up visit to the hospital where I have my treatment and scans. On the Friday, with several hours of free time, I decided to make a commentary about the people I was observing and what I think of as The Cancer Personality. This is an idea I’ve been exploring for more than a decade and an observation that I may have made about my self once upon a time ! You may think I’m judgemental in my comments and that was certainly not my intention. Of course I...

TSM144 : Aloneness & Loneliness - Symptoms of the Human Condition

9/2/2017
More
This monologue gets off to a bit of a rambling start with my venting about killer feral cats etc. but 13 mins in, things begin proper. The issue of aloneness & loneliness is an issue that is close to my heart. In today’s walk and talk I approach the issue of aloneness & loneliness by talking about my son’s life (with his permission) and my own adolescence. I’m often amazed at how sometimes, our children mirror our own lives. What is aloneness & what is loneliness and how does our...

TSM143 : The Shocking Reality of How Things Are & The Seasons of Life

9/2/2017
More
Sometimes we try and turn away from the shocking reality of how things are. But how things are is how they are. Isness is a powerful ally ! In this walk and talk I explore how nature’s seasons and the cycles of nature, parallel the seasons of our life and how we all face the same seasons of life, as part of the seasons of the human clock - from the cradle to the grave. I offer a tour of the seasons here on this land and suggest how facing the shocking reality of all that nature brings,...

TSM142 : The Joy of the Present Moment

8/19/2017
More
Today’s walky talky, starts with the joy of sheep ! Using their inspiration, I explore how we can systematically and holistically experience the joy of the present moment !

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

8/19/2017
More
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...

TSM140 : Types of Rituals & How to Create Rituals

8/19/2017
More
In this walk and talk, I contemplate the different types of rituals that fill human life and how we might create our own rituals to enrich our life.

TSM139 : The Importance of Human Drama

7/8/2017
More
All spiritual traditons emphasize the importance of freeing ourselves from drama because drama causes suffering. I beg to differ. Drama helps us to grow and suffering is OK. In today’s walky, I explore the importance of human drama and how drama reshapes our entire identity and experience of being human.

TSM138 : The Shadow of My Ancestors

7/8/2017
More
We all have ancestors alive and dead, who loom over us like long dark shadows that arouse something unfathomable deep inside of us. In this trek down the dirt road, I introduce you to 4 of my dead ancestors and share a little of who they were and what they meant to me. We are all experts in one thing and one thing only - ourselves. It’s my wish that by sharing intimate things about my own life, I strike a chord that resonates in you. And in so doing we remember our common humanity and...

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

7/8/2017
More
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...

TSM136 : Your House Your Home

7/8/2017
More
In today’s walk and talk I explore the idea that the house we live in isn’t necessarily a home and speculate on what makes a home. This is a very personal monologue, in which I take you on a tour through 37 years of some of my own houses and the one place that has always felt like home.
