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.

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.

But turning away does not remove the insight, it only distorts it and creates a black mirror through which to view life.

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?

Eye of the Beholder

Our feelings can be so overwhelming at times that we either don’t want to look into them, or we simply believe our emotional states to be true. But like so many aspects of life they are in the eye of the beholder. In this week’s podcast I talk about how our beliefs affect our emotional state and why it’s important to understand why we feel they way we feel.
