Kaleidoscope

“It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” Mark Twain
In this week’s podcast I talk about Kaleidoscopic Consciousness; a multi-faceted, everychanging lens that we need to activate whenever we are trying to make sense of something.  It is only when you have looked at something from multiple perspective that you can even begin to see the truth. In today’s polarised environment, it is easy to get caught up in narratives that keep us divided against each other, especially when our emotions are played on by the media.

Adaptation

In this week’s podcast I talk about how we can adapt to the limitations being placed on all us right now, as we surrender to circumstances beyond our control. At the end of this podcast I have added the audio from the “New Earth Meditation” I recorded in 2018. Use it before you go to sleep to reduce anxiety and help you envision a positive future for us all.

Ascent

In this week’s podcast I share a personal mystical experience brought on by reading Thomas Merton’s book, Ascent to Truth. This book illumintates the path towards contemplation and mystical communion. It is the path laid down by the mystic Saint John of the Cross, who wrote about the dark night of the soul.

Epiphany

Some call epiphanies, God breaking through. They are the a-ha moments that put us on a different track and bring new information to light. Higher consciousness is accessed through the mind and linked to our intuition, not our emotions. As our feelings are continually triggered, we need to learn how to calm our emotions so the truth can shine through.

Wander into Myths

In this week’s podcast I talk about the personal myths we create to comfort us and why these stories need to be examined when new information becomes available. By looking through the lens of both Christian and Buddhist teachings, I ask if subjective truth and morality is enough to keep us stable during times of need? Or do we need objective truths to stand on in order to make sense of the world and our place in it?

Higher Power

In this week’s podcast I talk about the spiritual discipline of forgiveness and how we can practice this in our lives. Often, we find it difficult to forgive others because they haven’t confessed, apologised and atoned for what they have done. The act of confession relieves us of our burdens and cleanses our soul. It helps us to steer clear of the corruption that leads to much of our misfortune.

Jonah Complex

Abraham Maslow coined the term “Jonah Complex” to describe a fear of our own greatness. It refers to the biblical story of Jonah who runs from the purpose that God has laid out for him and ends up in the belly of a whale contemplating his fate and asking for assistance. How many times have you felt as if you were in the belly of the whale? What can we do to stop ourselves sabotaging our own transcendent purpose?

Sustain-Ability

In this week’s podcast I ask why self-help is the number one selling genre in literature and why we are so clueless about being human. Our ability to self-sustain dwindles with every piece of advice sought from another. So how can we learn to sustain ourselves in times of need?
