Latest podcast: Costs and Benefits
In our time we're going through an intensification of events and pressures, globally, socially and individually. We're heading into harder times, and it's not going to go back to normal. But there are things we can do about this. It doesn't have to be as bad as currently it looks.
The costs and difficulties we have in life can be made a bit easier by not grinding on about it quite so much, by making things less difficult inside ourselves. Sounds easy, but it takes some work. There are also gifts in any situation that become visible if we shift our focus, take a deep breath, own what we're responsible for and focus on what's really most important.
I've faced some stuff in recent times and seem to be gaining something from it, deep down, underneath. It's a lot to do with finding what's available in any situation - anything that can cheer us, lift us up and open up pathways - and going on from there. Following a path. If your spirits have some sparkle, you'll be alright. Though often, 'alright' isn't what we originally thought.
17 minutes, with love from Palden.

This is an occasional series of insightful podcasts on a wide range of subjects by a 1960s veteran who never quite gave up. Now doing battle with bone marrow cancer (myeloma), I still have a few things to say and do before I go.
Whether or not you agree with this stuff, or whether or not I'm correct, I hope it connects a few dots, assisting your ruminations.
I've been a founder of several projects, a writer and editor of quite a few books, a speaker from many stages, a humanitarian, peacemaker, seer and historian. Oh, and an astrologer and geomancer. And a webmaster... it goes on, the list.
These podcasts tell of things learned along the way. The way continues. You never get to the destination - there's always more - though, strangely, accepting that makes getting there easier.
Since contracting cancer in 2019, I haven't been able to get around as before, so I just take short hobbling walks. Living in a homely cabin on an organic farm near Land's End, reasonably far from that madding crowd, I'm listening and watching, writing and podcasting whatever comes up as the zeitgeist twiggles my antennae. And yours. In a way, listeners like you pull it out of me.
When the weather is good, the recording studio is just down the field by a stream near the woods - with geese, crows and chaffinches providing soundscape services. Other times it's at my home. Or at the bronze age barrows up the hill on our farm. Or when someone takes me out for a clifftop jaunt.
These podcasts aren't scripted. Naturally I think up the subject and a few talking points. But it's quite spontaneous. When you've been giving attention to things over many decades, eventually they do come naturally!
