Ramble #1: Cheer up sad sack!

This is the first of what may be an ongoing series of rambles about whatever I’m thinking about. I’m not that good (yet!) at off the cuff speaking so it is what it is.

These will be pretty much unedited as it is just a ramble. I added some backing music that I like. For future episodes, I will just have some intro music. In hindsight, the background music is distracting.

I think this one picks up as it goes and I start to get going.

Feel free to comment. It is always appreciated. You shouldn’t need to log in to comment, assuming I got the settings right.

    I have said it before and I will say it gain, your words are always without question like philosophical poetry. This was awesome, the grand conspiracy and the rage against the dying light.

    Updating the website, reposting the old articles, editing the transcriptions, WRITING A NEW ARTICLE and a new podcast series. You just made my day, thank you for that.

    Thank you for sharing this, it has the feel of catching up with a old friend in a quite corner of a coffee shop or pub.
    With regards to the cult of positivity people I get the feeling they are obsessed with the fantasy of their false selves, the self they want to project into the simulated overlay and having situational awareness probably means admitting to the very dark nature of what civilization really is and would mean admitting the direction, common sense tells me, it’s headed.
    This also makes me think they are deeply afraid and as you said repressing this fear. I think that this denial is expressed by doubling down with preexisting, familiar programs to do with popularity and materialism.
    Imo facing and doing the soul work is the hardest work anyone will ever have to do here.
    It’s what the cult of positivity people are running from, it’s what everyone has been running from all along?
    I suspect the brave will only come through the looking glass of what I call authentic soul work.
    MTsar has said this work, the shadow work is mainly brought up through our relationships with others and for me those others are people I love who are labelled normies.
    As dark as this situation appears to be laid out, a lack of empathy and a sense of superiority are not characteristics of anyone brave imo.
    And it wasn’t that long ago I would have been considered a “normie”….well somewhat lol.

      Thank you for the comment. Really insightful stuff and I concur with your thesis.

      Interestingly, my next ramble (#3) started bubbling up whilst I was listening to an MTsar talk on existentialism.
