I discovered these MEMEs after writing "I_am". Click them for my thoughts... and yours?
And here's me talking about creativity, to a small collection of strangers, in Gullivers in Manchester's Northern Quarter. It was the 26th of July 2022,
and my words were extremely well received.
I ended this talk with my final "poem", 'When I changed'. It feels fitting that its last word, was as strong a word as "HELL". Afterwards, I exclusively wrote nonfiction.
22/02/23 I spoke at a Royal Society of Arts Northern Engage event, via Zoom, which I was unfamiliar with. I talked about individuality and the notion of mavericks.
My minimal feedback suggested I'd not been closely heard.
there's a close transcript of my piece HERE.
The next video is very important. Sadhguru addresses a group about their knowledge of self at the deepest level. Many people answer such a question, relative to external factors often outside of their control. That's a diametric position to this website; which tries to insists our paths should involve inner measures, including those echoed in my own independently conceived
"I am" book.
One night in my early 20s, I burst out of sleep. I was full of the profoundest realisation that I didn't know who I was. That's very stressful by the way. It took me two decades of non-conventionality to resolve it. So, it was an actual, rather than proverbial, "long story", but I began writing everything down. You can find lots for free, on, or one step, from this website. I earnestly hope it helps you.
The italics below accompanied the corresponding short video, when I shared it on Facebook.
This is exactly where I get to at the end of my 800 page "EVERYTHING" book. On page 795, there's a brief piece titled 'A final thought : "Love is ahead of itself..."', which is followed on pages 796 to 800 with my attempts to write Koans. The reason I end on these is precisely the same reason that I believe OSHO says in this video, that he is all about confusing people. I suggest in my book, that long-term consideration of essentially nonsense, through Koans, might shift the mind from its obsession with the objective, and move it to the subjective. A major submersion in the arts ought to also help. Or you can continue to find neat categories for every little part of your life, and see how healthy that keeps you.

The video below features Jim Carrey demonstrating the famous adage,
"many a true word is spoken in jest!"
I love this next short video. It's taken from within a larger one on YouTube, that was Recorded at the findhorn foundation in August 2016, Doshin Roshi asks a group of people,
"who are you?"
I wanted to share a full length talk by Jordan Peterson about Pinocchio, but that would be very long.
You can find lots of his interpretations of stories on YouTube. His answer to this question,
posed by Dave Rubin, moved me and mentioned Pinocchio too, so I added it.
Peterson's words on archetypes, are Life-1o1 truths.
