Latest podcast: Time
This time the recording studio is a field on our farm, with an appearance from the migrating geese of Grumbla.
This is about time. Time is what stops everything happening all at once. It stretches us out across a kaleidoscopic storyboard of life-experiences. But in the end, the seemingly lengthy sequence of days and daily life experiences melts into relative insignificance.
It's what we have become by going through life that matters most. It's the burnishing and polishing effect of pleasure and pain. Our inner evolution is not something that is hooked directly into time: the progress we make depends more on willingness and openness than on time.
If we devote much of our energy avoiding experiential intensity in our lives, we evolve more slowly. Our experience and usage of the time we have is very much a matter of deep choice. Living life to the full. Not just the comfortable, pleasant stuff but the grindstone, the fire and the soulquake too.
It's 37 minutes long.
With love from me, Paldywan Kenobi.

This is a series of insightful podcasts on a wide range of subjects by a 1960s veteran who never quite gave up.
Now doing battle with bone marrow cancer (myeloma), I still have a few things to say and do before I go.
Whether or not you agree with this stuff, or whether or not I'm correct, I hope it connects a few dots, assisting your ruminations and lighting you up.
I've been a founder of several projects, a writer and editor of quite a few books, a speaker from many stages, a humanitarian peacemaker, seer and historian. Oh, and an astrologer and geomancer. And a webmaster... it goes on, the list.
These podcasts tell of things learned along the way. The way continues. You never get to the destination - there's always more. Strangely, accepting that makes getting there easier.
Since contracting cancer in 2019, I haven't been able to get around as before, so I just take short hobbling walks. Living in a homely cabin on an organic farm near Land's End, reasonably far from that madding crowd, I'm listening and watching, writing and podcasting whenever the zeitgeist twiggles my antennae. And yours. In a way, listeners like you pull it out of me.
When the weather is good, the recording studio is just down the field by a stream near the woods - with geese, crows and chaffinches providing soundscape services. Other times it's at my home. Or at the bronze age barrows up the hill on our farm. Or when someone takes me out for a clifftop jaunt.
These podcasts aren't scripted. Naturally I think up the subject and a few talking points. But it's quite spontaneous. When you've been giving attention to things over many decades, eventually they just come naturally.
