(005) The Philosophy That Would Save The World: A Conversation about Rape, Veganism, Murder, & Manipulation of Minds…

In this episode: Consent as a movement to live upon…

You are 9 years old, in a dead sleep, a scream tears through the night, and you find yourself standing next to your 14 year old sister holding her hand before a locked bedroom door.

An eternity or a flash of a moment, it opens…

And there on the other side, your mother with blood dripping down her naked body.

The police arrive, and all you remember is the flash of a crime scene camera echoing off the mirror behind the bed and deep into your eyes, forever lost in memory.

What happened, what happens, what was and what wasn’t, unfolds upon life’s breath.

And this is a touch of that story…

Topics Discussed:

  • Rape and Recovery
  • Childhood Trauma
  • Memories
  • Story & Reification
  • Loss of loved ones
  • Friendship and Betrayal
  • Initiations and Razing
  • Veganism & Consent
  • Why people appear absurd…

An addendum:

Why veganism and the crazy standards non-vegans have…

There’s a complete dissonance in almost all people and by that I mean they are delusional and don’t want to know.

And it’s expected that if you are vegan than you must either be super healthy athletically gifted or frail and weak and a few months away from dying.

It’s curious that in the conversation there often is a misunderstanding that the majority of the population and that is mostly everyone, lacks some form of something in their lives.

I’ve yet to meet anyone in person, who actually lives these ideals perfectly. Yet, for some reason it is not allowed for vegans to be human.

It’s a great way of looking at people, searching for their foibles, for your conceived weaknesses.

As that all makes it easier to ignore looking at your own life, whether you live well or not.

For example, I call this the ice cream argument, this is when someone says, ‘I tried being a vegan but it just didn’t work out for me, I didn’t have any energy, and felt sluggish, as they eat a pint of ice cream, while telling me about some other issue they have with their body now.

This has happened so many times in my life that I find it hyper-absurd, even though I understand what is actually being said.

And that is, “It’s a challenge to be healthy and vibrant, to be fit and lucid.” But that isn’t veganisms fault, it is yours.

Because it’s challenging to be healthy and fit, whether vegan or not.

To living a life of consent,
Emeric Damian

 

 

 

 

(004) Jack Forem – Author, Spiritual Teacher, & Friend…

Jack Forem embodies a wonderful conversation with the idea of living a life of questing, of exploring and living into the question as a way of being.

Early in January 1970, I found myself arriving at the New Delhi airport…

He’s an author, ghostwriter, spiritual teacher, husband, friend, and infinitely more.

But I know him as I know him and it’s in this vein that I invite you into a conversation with the two of us.

“Your universality will have its own individuality,” Jack Forem

But first, stories…

All of us have stories that precede the meeting of others, as you and I know each other from this point in time, a point where our stories and history precede our relationship.

Who you were, who I once was, no longer is; yet it carries in our memory as if it’s so.

(003) You Are At The Center of The Universe And Why It Matters…

The Ultimate Truth About You and Your Freedom

Question: What are you aware of, lucidly aware of?

Awareness is the one thing, the one absolute truth, a center point for our experience of life.

The gradation… The spectrum… The subtlety of stillness…

Awareness coupled with your ability to put your attention where you wish will turn you into the freest being on earth.

So in this show, we are briefly going to take a look at what I believe is the most curious concept that any of us will ever have the opportunity to divine. Read More

(002) Stepping Into The Mystery That Is Your Life…

Questing The Unknown As A Way To Explore Love, Adventure, and Awakening…

We’re on a journey together to create your life, to explore the edges of reality, as well as the very moment that you are living right now.

We’ll be going on an expedition together, into what I call, “Questing The Unknown“.

Living in the question, opening up to the mystery, exploring and living life open and aware to the experience of life itself, the very thing we are, is where we play.

Overall, the ultimate quest is to free you to be you as you wish, to discover who you are and how you want to be in the world.

The quest is for full liberation and awakening, whatever that might be.

This is what we’ll be exploring.

This the journey to Questing The Unknown!

To an unconventional awakening,
Emeric Damian Thorpe

(001) Questing The Unknown, a Contemplation to Explore Life Through Metaphor and Experience…

Embracing The Unknown…

[ transcripts of the audio ]

Questing the unknown is a metaphor it’s an idea; it’s a way of living and experiencing the world.

It’s an idea that for me allows me to open up to what seems to be the impossible which is also the possible.

It sounds a little bit convoluted because it is, words are often like this; the words aren’t necessarily the thing.

The message isn’t the thing.

But these are the bridges that we use to get into the ideas that help us open up our perspective, help us see a little bit more help us understand and contemplate our own state of being and our own being in the world.
