In my own way, I am an amateur "Wattsian" philosopher. I learned a rare & unique ability from my studies of Alan Watts, the great philosophical entertainer from earlier this century.
In this podcast, inspired by Alan Watts and my personal "Conversations with Mom" (Yes, my actual mom, but her voice is not on the recording), I attempt to explain the great mystical experience, and many so-called superstitious mysteries of the Universe using very common sense language.
This is a philosophical technique I learned from studying Alan Watts. I'm still practicing my craft, but feel it's at the level where it's ready to be broadcast.
In many episodes, I find myself discussing the "Mystical Experience," also known as "Awakening" or "Cosmic Consciousness" in common sense language. I also discuss the nature of time, intuition and other phenomena in these episodes.
Some episodes are insightful, some serious, some moving, some amusing, some conversational, some lecture-style.
Hope you enjoy, and I'd love to read your comments, thoughts, or hear what thoughts arose in your own mind from listening.
Towards the end of this episode, I propose that saving the world from what Al Gore brilliantly terms, "The Inconvenient Truths" of our modern day is actually easy. And here's why: It's actually a most Convenient Truth that so many of us alive today are "asleep," and don't really have much to do that inspires us, gives us purpose, or from which we derive true joy from doing.
Conveniently, there's a great many solutions to all the Inconvenient Truths that have already been invented. Those solutions lie largely dormant, just waiting to be implemented. They are being "cock-blocked" by macho guys in power.
For example, Nicola Tesla created free wireless electricity a century before there was anything we needed an alternative to.
So .... the good news?
There's so much to be done. And a whole horde of people who are looking for something meaningful to do.
We can save the world in 6 days.
The "old culture" had a myth many of you are familiar with. "The world was created in 6 days."
(Maybe not 6 days, but virtually overnight, once we put our minds to it.)
Let's tell ourselves a new myth. "We can save the world in 6 days." And we actually can. Just as we retooled American factories when we jumped into World War II to support the War Efforts.
We really can do anything we put our mind to. We have an astonishingly and sufficiently sophisticated civilzation.
Once we wake up.
Let's get to work.
