Yet More Talks

Suddenly I am finding that the world and his wife are interested in me doing talks and lectures. Not that I am in any way complaining. What started off as a week long visit to my father- in-law's place in Mid-Devon (Zeal Monachorum) has turned into another book-signing and library talks fiesta. For anybody that is interested I will be at Exmouth Library at 7:30 pm on Tuesday 10th of April, Barnstaple library on Wednesday 11th April at 7:30 pm, at Waterstones Bookshop in Exeter at 5:30 on April 12th (my 53rd birthday!!), and at Oakhampton Library at 7:30 on Monday the 16th of April.

You may also be interested to know that my friend the American artist Myron Conan Dyal will be having his first book launched on Barnes@Nobles website on April 28, 2007. It is over a 100 pages of his art in full colour. The title of the book is: "Primordial Images of a Modern Mystic". You will recall that Myron has TLE and his art is influenced by both this and by his Daemon, 'Charon'. Check this out if you get the chance. Real life Daemon-influenced art and yet more proof of my Daemon-Eidolon Dyad.

My experience of my “Daemon” began shortly after I had been in a coma for two months and upon awaking my memory of all things that preceded the coma were gone! I had no family, no moorings, nothing that would, or even could support the notion that I was of this world; and I had epilepsy!! It was at that time that my spirit guide, (I called it Charon) came into my life and made it known to me that it would always be with me.
Charon has taken me places that were, and are so vast that they are inexpressible in normal human terms. Through out my life my memory of travels with Charon is vivid and intact, while my extraverted life experiences are vague, and have in most cases been entirely erased from memory.

Our creation of reality is tenuous at best and must be supported minute, by minute by familiar, and reinforced objects that tie us to what we optimistically call the “real” world. Almost from the beginning of my post “lapsarian” existence I selected other objects, places, sounds, and experiences to circumnavigate my inner universes. My TLE continuously channeled energy into my unconscious mind shattering the barriers that keeps others from fully experiencing their inner realities. The inner path has no boundaries or limitations on what can, or should be available to the ego, the difficulty is expanding your “ego” consciousness to accept all the vastness that is out there just waiting to be discovered. The problem as Shakespeare so aptly put it is “not in our stars, but in ourselves”!!
