Lost in Translation

In this week’s podcast I talk about the need to develop our critical thinking capabilities so we can better understand the problems we face – both personally and collectively – and the often well-meaning solutions being offered by politicians and activist groups. Many of these ideas deserve some scrutiny rather than blind acceptance. Thought provoking criticism should not be censored simply because some find it offensive.

Starfish & Coffee

In this week’s podcast I talk about creativity, intelligence and austism. In the Maori language the word used to describe austism is ‘Takiwātanga’, which translated means “My/his/her own time and space.” We still don’t understand why austism develops, or have a clear idea of why many austistic people have exceptional creative or academic abilities. Are they able to access different levels of consciousness due to a difference in brain chemistry? Can we learn from people with autism about how to access higher intelligence and creativity?

New Dawn

In this week’s podcast I talk about the energy of truth that we can see seeping into so many different areas, bringing light and justice where once there was only corruption and darkness. A new dawn has come and there is no turning back. We have such a supportive and buoyant energy assisting us to become warriors; defenders of truth, protectors of those who need it the most.

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.

Sentience is Futile

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.
