In this week’s podcast I talk about the alchemy of change and how understanding our inner duality helps us turn lead into gold. Before we embark on examining our psyche, our view of life and ourselves is clouded by the past. This inner distortion actually blocks the natural process of change that we all undergo by virtue of being born. Mental illness can be seen as a reaction to these inner blocks and the world of denial that many of us live in.
Following on from last week’s podcast on injustice and corruption within our society, I ask why we find it necessary and even preferable, to fall into denial. This state of being thwarts change and allows the darkness to spread like a cancer within us and the collective. Presently, everything we have covered up, buried and denied will begin to awaken, so we need to decide whether to run from, or befriend, these sleeping giants in our unconscious.
In this week’s podcast I talk about justice and corruption, with reference to miscarriages of justice and systemic abuse that we would rather not look into. The subject matter may make us feel angry and helpless, we may want to bury our heads in the sand and pretend the darkest elements of humanity don’t exist, but we owe it to the victims to become informed.
As we continue to traverse the world of blinkered, polarised thinking it is important that we elevate our thought processes and begin to examine the possible origins of thought itself. How do we know where our thoughts come from? It feels like they’re generated by our minds, but could that be simply because that is what we have been taught?
What is the benefit of developing a sense of inner neutrality and how much responsibility do we have to get involved in solving other people’s problems? Often, we are the keepers of other people’s secrets, or we are privy to information that may help others to make informed decisions yet we stay quiet. Why?
Wisdom is only gained by walking your own path. In this week’s podcast I take some time to walk through the forest and drop beneath the swirl of chaotic energy that permeates our existence. I talk about the danger of substituting information and knowledge for wisdom and identifying too much with our intellect. The shift that many have spoken about has already happened and what we are witnessing are the death throes of a dying system. How can we develop feelings of internal support and peace while the storms rage on?
The heatwave has turned the Highlands into a jungle. It’s so green and lush we could easily be in the tropics. In this week’s podcast I talk briefly about Geoengineering, the latest plan to manage the climate, before delving more deeply into the subject of personality types.
In this week’s podcast I talk about ancient civilisations, human origins and climate change as a way to demonstrate our desire for, and ability to digest, “A Little Bit of Knowledge”. Delving deeply into topics that we believe are ‘a done deal’ is a foolproof way to exercise and transform our minds. Will you take up this week’s challenge to investigate the opposing side of an argument you are 100% sure of?
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance and power of symbols, from corporate brands to spiritual images. We are influenced by these symbols from birth, yet we are encouraged to view life as a collection of nouns without meaning because we have lost the use of metaphorical language, which formed the worldview of our ancestors.
I hit the road again in this week’s podcast because being outside and connected to nature brings me more clarity, but why? Once we understand that our own frequency and bio-rhythms need to be in sync with that of the Earth, we can understand why being in nature is so important to our well-being. Not only do we become energised but we learn the lessons that nature has to teach us, the main one being unity.
