Four Corners

“Every truth has four corners: As a teacher I give you one corner
 and it is for you to find the other three.” Confucius

As we begin a New Year it’s important to reassess, not only our goals, but our premises about life. Are we standing on a solid foundation of truth or a pile of comfortable lies? By reviewing some of the topics from last year using Confucius’ four cornered approach, we will can bring balance to our ideas.

Out of the Blue

In the last podcast of 2018, I talk in more detail about synchronicity and the nature of real spiritual experiences. Many people believe they can be willed forth through devotion to a Guru, or by following rigorous spiritual exercises; this is the psychology of the seeker based on a desire for enlightenment. However, spirit cares nothing for our human framework of cause and effect, which is why genuine spiritual experiences come out the blue.

Broken Spells

In this week’s podcast I talk about the power of hypnosis and the psychology of the group. We are all subject to the power of certain people and ideas, that act like spells on our consciousness. Whether these spells are cast by organisations, or our nearest and dearest, we need to become aware of how to break them and assert our own will by connecting to our personal guidance.

Still Waters

Through my own experience with archetypal forces, I explain how these conscious symbols interact and heal us and how they were created through the perceptions of ancient humans and augmented by people throughout the ages. The collective unconscious is the store house for these symbols and can be accessed, as we would access the internet based “Cloud” today. The password is our intention, interest and readiness to explore the unknown of the universal mind.

The Father

In this week’s podcast I talk about traditions, values and institutions that have been brought into disrepute in our western culture. I discuss the modern idea of marriage and how it differs from the traditional ideal, which leads on to a discussion of spiritual values, which have largely been lost in favour of a more materialistic focus.

Revelation

In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of cultivating a direct relationship with your own spiritual consciousness through communion, which involves listening and waiting for personal revelations, large and small. This communication is often lost when we perform rituals and mantras, or follow specific spiritual programs that fulfill our egos’ need for attainment, yet lead the seeker away from what lies within.

Eye of the Needle

In this week’s podcast I talk about the impediments to moving through the eye of the needle in order to reach the “kingdom of heaven”. In the biblical passage it’s said to be riches that block our entry, but anything that we are attached to, including dogmatic belief systems, will slow down our spiritual progress. I speak about our attachment to information and the irony that the more information we have access to the less enlightened we become.

Irrational Tides

In this week’s podcast I talk about the tides of seemingly irrational thoughts and emotions that we can experience and how we can develop an inner community of characters to help process them. If we become too logical, we lock ourselves in a mental prison that seeks to know the ultimate truth, which is often only a fraction of the mystery that life presents us. If we allow our irrational thoughts to possess us, we invite another kind of madness that rips us from the fabric of reality and isolates us in a different way. As always, combining two sides of the same coin makes us richer.

Inner Oracle

In this week’s podcast I talk about the Ancient Greek myth of Cassandra and the importance of consulting the archetypal stories that many modern thinkers believe are now obsolete. The story of Cassandra offers us insight into the relationship we have with our inner oracle; our intuition. Many turn their heads away from their inner knowing for fear of where it may guide them. But turning away does not remove the insight, it only distorts it and creates a black mirror through which to view life.

Over the Rainbow

When our ideals don’t match our reality we become impatient with our slow rate of progress and try to find someone to blame. But real progress comes from assessing our own part in the problems and solutions, which means we all need to face our guilty conscience. As Krishnamuti said, “The moment you understand something, you are free of it.”
