Women: Your Orgasms are Shameful, Sinful, and a Danger to Society
Please, wait one minute! I am the messenger here, not the message. I don’t think this is true, but the United Kingdom government does, and I thought you ought to know about it. Personally, I love having a woman ejaculate with and/or on me. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had several lovers who were able to ejaculate love-juice in such copious amounts as to make my offering seem meager and miniscule. With one lover, swimming in her ejaculatory stream was like free-diving in a beau... Read more
Thoughts are Not a Problem. Not really. They're fine. Sort of.
I had a conversation recently with one of my “clients”—people with whom I have conversations that matter, which seem to benefit them so much they kindly offer me money in exchange for the value they receive from our conversations. I gratefully accept. I believe this is called, conventionally speaking, making a living. In this recent conversation, my conversation partner told me she was having an existential crisis. I asked clarifying questions, as I tend to do. “What do you mean?... Read more
A False Premise
This Thanksgiving, Millions will not Eat. Here's how to Help.
I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving, which I’ll spend at my sister Sandra’s house along with all my siblings, nieces and nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and a few unaffiliated strays. I’ve volunteered to cook the turkey, with stuffing and gravy. My family has a lot to be thankful for, including the lavish meal we are preparing. Perhaps you, too, have much to be thankful for; perhaps you, too, are preparing a lavish Thanksgiving meal with loved ones. Millions will not. Millions ... Read more
Learning to Speak Truthfully from Our Hearts
“We fell morally ill because we became used to saying something different from what we thought.” ~ Václav Havel It is not uncommon to read about some scandal of corruption, fraud or deception–by government officials, corporate executives, spiritual leaders, celebrities or sport figures. Even the Catholic Church is not immune, paying out billions of dollars in penalties for not speaking authentically about decades of child sexual abuse. I want to set things straight. We are not v...

Visionary film about 11-year-old Australian Aboriginal
I am very happy to help my friend Garth Lategon Delon promote and raise funds for his new project: a movie about an 11-year-old Aboriginal boy, Tyrone, and his Uncle Lucky as they negotiate everyday life in urban Melbourne. A quick word about my mate Garth and how we know each other. I met Garth around 2008 or so, while I lived in Melbourne. He invited me to speak, twice, at Rainbow Serpent, the annual lifestyle (read: hippie) festival he produced. I was by far the oldest dude at the festival... Read more
The 5 Principles of Authentic Living
I would like to share with you The 5 Principles of Authentic Living, which represent nearly 50 years of self-study and self-expression. The first led to self-realization based on direct experience; the second led to unfettered forms of actualizing that realization in the world. These five principles comprise 10 simple words: two words per principle. They are my scripture, the profoundly holy and profusely practical book I use to guide me along the pathless path of an authentic life. The value... Read more
Authentic Realization
Working with Robert: It's Not for Everyone
When I learned that Robert had launched his Speaking Truthfully website, I sent him my unsolicited comments about what it's like to work with him. I really don’t want you to work with Robert. I am selfish and I don’t want to share him with you. So even as I share my experiences of working with him for more than two years, I am aware that I'd rather you weren't inspired to want to work with him. I want to scare you off, like a dragon protecting her lair. Robert is my golden treasure. H... Read more
