Happy New Year!
But time doesn’t exist.
Except it does.
Happy New Year!
Say, what is new for this new year, anyway? Glad you asked–and just like that. Here’s what we’ve got percolating in the lab….
Less Para, More Normal
I will be fading out of the ufological scene. I used to think it was fulla garden-variety nuts. Now I know they’re poisoned nuts. I don’t want to swim in the poisoned pool anymore. That’s one reason.
Another is, I think that given my experiences and where my thinking has been leading me about them, I’m actually running a parallel track. I mean, I don’t think there are enough people who can actually hear what I’m saying about abductions/the paranormal to make me a useful voice in this anymore. I’m more interested in the really, really big picture, not eternally explaining and arguing against nuts and bolts, sounding like a broken record about hypnosis, and forcing topics and ideas on my audience who, by and large, don’t want to hear them.
I know the reality of all this unreality doesn’t lie in the fetishized shallow end of the human kiddie pool and I can’t fake it anymore. It’s time for me to towel off and bathe in the sun. I think I lost the thread of this metaphor, but the point is, the closed cases are closed. Too many people are toxic or embrace toxicity here. Come with me if you want to live.
Thirdly? In their present incarnations, ufology and paranormal subjects are simply unimportant to me anymore and we have zero time left on this planet to dillydally.
That said, I am going to be spending as much of my online life as possible serving OurUndoing.com. I will be fleshing out any overlap between paranormal/ufological stuff and the Spirit stuff there. This is the place I feel most free to speak from heart. By that I mean, I don’t even care if anyone is reading or watching or listening. This is what wants to come out of me when I’m not fighting it back to be the everyday asshole people relate to. This is where I am, in a word, natural.
Season 6 of Our Undoing Radio should hit the airwaves at the end of this month. I’ll flesh out why in an episode there, but I’m thinking about quitting Facebook and Twitter as anything other than a means to advertise. OurUndoing already has a free and paid presence. I’m still not sure if I want to make it all free and forgo the memberships moving forward, but if I quit social media I will definitely open up the message boards for free and we can talk there.
Living Mystery Symposium
My wife and I and a few others are working out the details, but we will be doing another Living Mystery Symposium this year. It will be online. It will be inexpensive. It will feature only quality speakers, each speaking to topics that will be parts of a larger story. What will that story be and who will be telling it? That’s what we’re working out. We’re trying to nail down what we believe is the most important–most useful–meta topic we can think of as we move forward into the unknown with our broken political systems, unstable people, unstable atmosphere, and transforming Earth.
Like, what’s important at the end of time? Not just entertaining and not just informative–What’s transformational and necessary?
I Am To Tell You This….
Lastly, even though I want out of ufology/paranormal world as a white marble on the Hungry, Hungry Hippos board, I’ll still be speaking about my book. In fact, I’ll be taping an episode of Where Did The Road Go? later this week.
I’d also like to do some live book readings of I Am To Tell You This And I Am To Tell You It Is Fiction with you all via Zoom really soon. Like, February soon. So, if you have not read it, we both know you got Amazon gift cards for Christmas. Use that last eighteen bucks on a hilarious, mind-blowing book, why dontcha, and then meet me in the Zoom chat with questions.
Lastly, John Randall’s and my children’s book, The Story of Toe…. I have decided to do a video reading of it for children on Youtube. I will use it as a leaping off point for a new section of OurUndoing.com for adults.
All right. Lot’s there. Packed year. All that and I’ve still got ducks to feed and gardens to plant. If you have any questions or comments–suggestions/ideas–please feel free to drop a comment.
