Podcast Transcript - Season One Podcast Trailer

over the entrance to the Oracle at Delphi in Ancient Greece
And the Oracle’s kitchen doorway in the movie The Matrix.
What does it mean to know thyself? That I’m alive? That
I eat? That I can speak?
00:00:38,500 –> 00:01:03,590
How do I know what is myself, especially if there are a
million voices tugging at my attention or governing and
running my attention from within the confines of my mind?
Can my mind even be said to be my mind alone?
Is my mind truly myself and can I call it myself if it’s stuffed
with all these other invading voices?
00:01:04,690 –> 00:01:34,750
Knowing thyself is what Season 1 of the Logos of Experience
and Truth centers on. Getting to these details will be a challenge.
These were my first audio recordings that I decided to stick with.
They came after two drafts written on a book I’ve been working
on called the Beatific Vision of God. As such, they are ridiculously
dense with titles that are more book chapter titles than podcast titles.
00:01:35,720 –> 00:02:09,220
The first three episodes were scripts I had written and read. They are
very mechanical and deal with lots of topics and subject matter, details
and definitions and such, as I try to ground what the podcast is about
both for you the listener as well as for myself. There’s a big difference
between what is thought, what is written, what is read, and what is spoken.
The goal of course is to make what is written, read and spoken what is
being thought in the mind at that moment.
00:02:09,920 –> 00:02:42,670
But if you are honest with yourself, you know that’s not what really
happens most of the time. I feel I start to get my actual recording
voice in Episode 4: The Indescribability of God, which is where the talk
on discerning the True Self truly begins and is carried through to the last
episode of the season. These are the keys to the self in these episodes:
What the True Self in our mind is versus the false self. What the
True Self of God is.
00:02:43,370 –> 00:03:14,360
How the True Self in our mind is related to and different from the image
and True Self of God. How understanding these aspects of the True Self
Split apart what is real versus what is not real in our mind. Then, in light
of understanding our True Self and the True Self of God, I exchange God
for Self in Pascal’s wager to see if it still works, especially towards pushing
someone not to seek God, but to seek their True Self.
00:03:15,750 –> 00:03:47,080
If there is no God, then at least you found yourself. But if finding the self
means also finding God, well . . .You decide at that point if it is a worthwhile
endeavor. For those that attempted and listened to the first season,
especially the first episode, I thank you. The material in Season 1 is so utterly
dense, especially for a beginner, that to any new listeners, I recommend
listening to the 10-episode summary that I’ve published to get the gist of
00:03:47,090 –> 00:04:15,640
things in addition to the overall podcast trailer. I also recommend visiting
the individual podcast episode pages at Logosofexpereinceandtruth.com.
Click the link in the episode description to listen with the time stamped
show notes. They can zip you straight to the parts of interest rather than
trying to listen to these early encyclopedic episodes if my many tangents
are annoying you as they are annoying me on re-listens.
00:04:16,630 –> 00:04:43,360
I’m very honest in saying when I’m going into a rant on random stuff
if you want to skip that stuff. You may miss out on some important details
That arise again in future episodes, but at least your mind won’t potentially
explode from encyclopedia level details in these first ten episodes.
Unless of course you are trying to make your mind explode. For how else
does change truly occur in the mind?
00:04:44,360 –> 00:05:16,370
This is another underlying theme and subject I return to over and over again.
How do we change our mind? We’re always told to change. We need to
change, change and grow, be different, improve. But how does this really
occur? This is what the Mysteries are meant to accomplish and why the
snake was revered across all religions and spiritual cults. Even Jesus said
the snake was wise.
00:05:17,160 –> 00:05:48,710
It is very strange for me to make these trailer and summary episodes for
Season 1 after already recording them. But like the snake shedding its skin,
I am trying to learn and improve from these first ten published episodes.
As a quick foreshadow, Season 2’s 10 episodes have the same level of
details, but follows a straight chronology starting with my Descent into Hell
and Near-Death experience. It ends with the Ascension experience at the end
of this season’s opening episode.
00:05:50,550 –> 00:06:27,390
Season 2 flows better than these first ten episodes I think and each one
is at or around the 30-minute mark, so they’re not as long. In Season 3,
I am focusing on a single subject or idea in each episode with podcast
Friendly titles like: What are the mysteries? Is there a correct way to
meditate? What is the mystical Ascension experience? Foundational stuff
I sort of overlooked in defining in Season 1. By changing to this format,
I’ve recorded 40 episodes in a month, so I think I’ve found my sweet spot.

or using the timestamps on the podcast pages to zip around within each
episode is that I do return to and expand upon the many details I’ve stuffed
into these foundational episodes. And to the keen listener or reader, if you’ve
chosen to purchase the eBook of Transcripts to Support this podcast, I
amplify and amplify and amplify the key teaching and lesson that God has
00:07:06,240 –> 00:07:37,390
seemingly put me on this earth to discern. Since it is this key idea that has
led to each and every downfall descent into hell experience I’ve had, and
rejecting this key idea that has brought each ascending and visionary and
healing and illuminating experience I’ve had. And it has to do with what I’ll
lump together into one, since they are all of them the same thing: The Secret
to Manifesting through the Law of Attraction.
00:07:38,550 –> 00:08:06,570
Many of the foundational details to understanding why this idea in all its
facets goes utterly and absolutely against God are laid down in this Season 1
of the Logos of Experience and Truth. Listen closely, especially if you’ve fallen
into the trap of this occult principle. And I will leave you with that.
Until next time.
