Hey there! Sorry for not posting updates more regularly but I’ve been keeping myself awfully busy finishing a commission, and I tend to be pretty single-minded when there’s a definite deadline involved. Anyway, at the end of this post is a link to an episode of Mike Clelland’s podcast The Unseen, in which he invited me over to have very stimulating discussion involving my favorite topic –UFOs. Since Mike is aware of my fascination with Carlos Castañeda, we also touched upon his philosophy for a bit and how the stories he narrated on his many books –which may or may not be entirely fictitious, but this is neither the time or place to delve into that…– have several intriguing similarities with the alien abduction phenomenon, particularly the idea of living a ‘secret life’ that unfolds on a very different state of consciousness than waking life.
As I have mentioned many times here in this webpage and elsewhere, Mike is one of my favorite people in this wacky world of paranormal events and hidden experiences. Knowing him I was certain that no matter how we started the conversation, we would inevitably end up somewhere very deep and heartfelt. Even though Mike and I are following very different paths –he’s a genuine experiencer of what can only be described as a different reality, whereas no matter how much I’ve longed to have my own encounter with The Other, I feel I’m forever destined to perceive and comment upon these events merely from a periphery– I honestly feel that deep down we are both trying to arrive to the same place; it certainly hasn’t been an easy journey, but I’m still convinced that despite it all we chose a path with Heart.
