(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.

What We Think We Know About Consciousness We Don’t Know About Consciousness. ( Curation )

To get an idea of what we don’t know, while also being turned on to the possibility of knowing, I suggest reading this article from the BBC.

It cuts through the false ‘knowing’ that is often presented about consciousness by pointing at the ideas around it, as ideas and potential areas to further investigate consciousness and the quantum.

Whatever that might mean!

We don’t know what we think we know and we know it…

The Big But…

There’s a definition of consciousness that I’ve been taught, and it feels like the clearest definition I have found even though it falls completely short of what I want to know about consciousness.

Consciousness is cognizant and luminance; awareness and illumination itself.

It’s a great base to begin with and it feels as real as we can know from what we know until we know what we know from going in and doing the work of introspection, calming the mind, sharpening the focus, and asking the questions as we explore the nature of consciousness.

All of the ideas in this issue are shared here to assist you and myself in knowing the questions for ourself as an experience.

(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,

(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.

On Being The Guardian of Your Story…

A story unfolding…

I prefer to know and discuss your journey, the script was flipped a few months ago, when a former client of mind, Jane Ellen asked to interview me for her Glistening Particle podcast.

It was a pleasure, and I hope you enjoy it as well.

Episode 22: Emeric the mirror

We discussed:

The journey into the radical experience of being alive, of experiencing more of life itself, of the discovery of a dream, of a life to explore, of a masterpiece to create, of being a movement toward an understanding of our existence, a play in the world that gives us the opportunity to express the fullness of our desires, to be free to play and tease out the experience of life as we desire.

You are the guardian of your story, and both of it and in it.

What story would you love to live?

With curiosity,
Emeric
