This summer I took a class in transpersonal psychology. Transpersonal is word that makes most people's eyes glaze over because they don't know what it means. Think the types of experiences people have on hallucinogenic drugs, like when they become the carpet or a bush, or become aware of the multitude of lives in which they have lived and see their current life as small and insignificant and oh so quick. Or they have an encounter with an other dimensional being. Or they are able to telepathically communicate with their best friend.
Hi friends, It's been a long time since I've written something, but that doesn't mean that I don't want to. It's just hard to find the time, and when I do have time I've been having fun working on my YouTube channel. A few people have been asking me for writing lately. So I thought I would reinstitute an old practice of mine: the One Hour Essay.
I've come to the conclusion that the metaphysical is a lot like sex. Everyone thinks about it, but no one talks about it in polite company. There seems to be a sort of embarrassed shaming around being spiritual or experiencing spiritual events such as synchronicities, clairvoyance, miraculous healings and the like. You might hear someone say, “This is a little woo-woo but...”.
