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?

Conspiracy No More

In this week’s podcast I ask how many of our beliefs are based on conspiracy theories? With the death of, ‘sex trafficker for the elites’, Jeffrey Epstein many people have been drawn into this conspiratorial way of thinking, in one person’s words, “We’ve all become Alex Jones.” It’s time we looked more deeply into how the mainstream narratives we believe to be true were initiated and whether conspiracy theories provide the underpinning of many of our most accepted beliefs.

Raise the Bar

In this week’s podcast I talk about censorship and intolerance. As this is being normalised and even welcomed by some, we need to be aware of our own reaction to it. Whose ideas are we unwilling to tolerate and why? What new truths are you afraid to accept? Are you willing to take the risk of thinking for yourself?

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.

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.

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.
