Transparency disarms the enemy
Healing ourselves is a private process, but has a public aspect too
I have worked very hard, and played every bit as hard, with no victims in either case. In this video I share a little bit of the wild ride I have had, and the somewhat richer experience of humanity and society than is commonly revealed. I often see people put me on a pedestal when they only see the “acceptable” public persona, and not the struggles and injuries from the more extreme experiences I have encountered. So what’s the purpose of sharing a touch of the more lurid side of life?
I don’t seek any kind of public office, reward, or recognition, so I am in a fortunate place where being truthful and transparent is possible — at a cost I can manage. The enemy we are fighting is brilliant at inserting “bad spirits” that lead us into fracturing ourself into endless personas, acting out righteous and unrighteous behaviours. Our job is to heal and become integrated again, literally following the whole-y way. As a quasi-public figure I have the opportunity to model some of the personal self-reform behaviours without getting crucified for it.
I don’t dive into it here, but I feel that the erotic is an under-examined part of the Great Awakening. We have a small number of foundational relationships — the self, the divine, our partner, and our parents plus children. The sexual and the sensual are near the focus of all of these in some way. I have partitioned that part of life off in my work so as not to draw attention to my own faults and failures, which are legion. Maybe it is time to speak from experience, so I can do more to help others who face similar battles to let benign spirit command the unruly mind and heat-seeking body?
