The Long-Awaited Advaita Show #022 (MP3 – 13.8MB – 39min)
Wow, I couldn’t believe it when I realized it’s been three weeks since you’ve had your dose of advaita goodness. I know there are other sources of advaita out there, but surely you all agree that this show is the most advaita of all advaita shows? We out-advaita the lot of ‘em.
Anyway… enough bullshit, let’s get on with it.
Guests this week include:
Laya from Super-Cannes, France
The main themes today were about small “i” versus big “I”, holding ones breath, and orgies. Yes, you read right, ORGIES. Laya has some experience in that area and once you’ve heard her accent, you’ll agree with me that she has a HUGE career as a guru ahead of her if she combines the accent with the orgies. Anyway… you’ll need to listen to the show.
I’ve tried to answer as many of your questions from the last couple of weeks as I could but, if I missed anyone, please re-post your question to this week’s show so I can find it next week!
Unfortunately, I have to report that The Advaita Show has dropped to #55 in the Podcast Alley rankings, so you won’t be getting another videocast this month (got to get us into the Top Ten)! Ohhhhhhhhh…. I know. But there is still a week left so, if you haven’t voted already in the month of February, you are letting the team down! Vote now by clicking here!
Okay so I spoke with his Bobness this morning and he said that he has plans today with Barb, and if he tries to pull out, she will kick the sat-chit-ananda right out of him! And he’s an old man, so we don’t want THAT happening, do we!
So it’s next week folks. Here’s what my promise to you, because you’ve been so patient…
I, the true I, masquarading as an imaginary entity known as “Cameron Reilly”, will, to the best of “my” ability, which, as we all know, is ZERO because there is no entity to have “free will”, carry out the bidding of the Intelligence Energy next “Tuesday” (time being a concept) and will NOT use my iPod to record the show. I (the true there-is-only-one-without-a-second “I”, not the imaginary “me”, will use my (again, subjective relative concept, the phenomenon of the noumenon-which-I-am) laptop. I (true “I” again) will also (again, within the limits of the complete lack of volition that this non-entity has) faithfully continue to act the part of the foolish questioner for the benefit (nothing to gain, no-one to become, nothing to do, no path, you are already that which you seek) of the audience, even though I (true “I”) have been convinced for quite some years now that there is no entity called “Cameron” and that everything else concerning “life”, “the Universe”, and “Everything” is just a great way to spend “time” talking about nothing to no-one, selling books, pretending to be gurus, smiling serenely, etc.
Okay, now I’m getting really scared to tell you folks this, ’cause you’re getting kind of creepy, but….
Eliot just emailed me to tell me he didn’t get to record a show with Bob this week. He is sorrier than Dick Cheney but them’s the breaks. Geeeez, between my iPod frakups, and Eliot’s miss, the intelligence energy must REALLY hate you people! What have you done to piss it off so much lately???
Here’s what I’m going to do.
Because I know you are all hanging out for your little burst of enlightenment this week, like rabid zombies who haven’t eaten human flesh in a week, I’m going to ring his Bobness in the morning and see if I can get 30 minutes with him on the phone or in person tomorrow. See if he can slip me into his busy schedule of … you know… being in nirvana and dealing with pathetic seekers trying to kiss his feet.
If he can fit me in, I will re-schedule my entire day around getting some enlightenment nourishment for you crazy people.
If he cannot see me tomorrow, then you’re just going to have to make do with the 2nd tier enlightenment on offer out there… you know who I’m talking about… until next Tuessssssday.
Let the complaining begin.
Ok, confession time… I recorded a rip-roaring show this week with Bob and Eliot, the best show, I think, we’ve done yet. It was a KILLER. It was a special edition dedicated to Gilbert and Charlie. I was sure this show was our defining moment. Everything Bob said was beautiful, everything Eliot said was beautiful, and I said nothing.
When I got home an hour later to edit it, before I could get the file off of my shiny Apple iPod, the hard drive failed on me, yet again. Sometimes it corrects itself in a couple of days, so I’ve been sitting here…. watching the kettle boil… so far – nothing. It’ll be a shame if you don’t get to hear this show, cuz I really think you cats would have dug it. But there you go. See Gilbert and Charlie? I tried to give you want you want but the Universe had other plans. So maybe that’s a sign…
Not bad people, not bad. The #47 podcast out of 30,000 podcasts. Still… #47 isn’t Top Ten, and no-one is going to notice it unless we’re at least Top Ten. Personally, I’d like to see it in the #1 spot for, at least, like, FOREVER, but hey…. that’s just me… or the “not-me”, or whatever you people like to call it… I’m not sure you really want the episode I recorded with Bob and Eliot yesterday…. you gotta show me you want it people… of course, you have no free will, so…
Wow. Nice work on the voting! The Advaita Show is already 84th most popular podcast on Podcast Alley for the month of February! And that’s with just 20 votes in so far. By my calculations, to get into the Top Ten, we would need (as of today) a total of 151 votes. To get into the Top Fifty it’s only 33. I believe you are allowed to vote daily so…. it’ll crack me up if an Advaita podcast ends up in the top ten.
I tell ya what – if we get into the Top Ten, I’ll do another video podcast. That’s your motivation.
Hey here’s an way you can introduce the world to Bob. If you like the show (yes Gilbert Grape, we are starting to get the impression you don’t approve), then go over to Podcast Alley and vote for it often! Let’s see if you can get the show into the Top Ten. Then lots of people will think “gee what is this advaita thing all about” and listen to the show… you never know what could happen…
