In this week’s podcast I talk about nihilism and the futility of existence. Why do things matter to us, or not? Is it worth living a life that we feel is empty and meaningless, or does that attitude set us free? A lack of meaning can lead to depression, which is in itself comforting on some level as we perceive ourselves as victims. Wish fulfillment and magical thinking can seem like an easy way to combat depressive states of consciousness, but often leave us feeling unfulfilled. Wishing for a thing doesn’t make it so; it’s a deep examination of our values that reveals our purpose.
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?
In this week’s podcast I discuss the scientific and spiritual nature of consciousness, psychic phenomenon and ask if the fraction of reality we are able to perceive through our five sense is the only reality available to us.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of creativity and intuition. Being creative elevates us above our ordinary consciousness and connects us to our lifeblood. It gives us energy as it is an active rather than a passive pursuit. Creative expression stimulates different areas of our brain and brings with it feelings of inspiration while alleviating stress.
