Sometimes, when I am drafting or finishing an article or essay the item is audio recorded so I can review the sentiment of the article. Of course, the recording is made wherever I am at the time. For example, Studland Beach, a city centre; desolate moors and The Vosges mountain region. The background ambience gives a depth of feeling to the sentiments of the idea. A few friends were sent copies of the recordings for their opinion on my releasing them as free downloads for this site. All believe there is merit in the idea, so I decided to make the recordings availble.

This download is a recording of a 'Never Let Anything Worry You' chapter titled 'Today's Actions.'
The essay works through the idea that focussing on daily tasks and completing objectives with calm and patience will free us from worry. I use simple examples to reinforce the sentiments of the essay. The theme is strengthened with careful repetition of ideas and true stories taken from interviews recorded over the last eight years.
This three minute meditation is titled 'Answers' - I examine the idea of not looking for answers in the past is the way to become free to live in the future. The meditation also considers the premise that negative acts diminish our 'Being' and good and beneficial actions enhance our visibility and therefore enrich our lives.

'The Paradox of Freedom' In this essay I write about my encounter with depression. I suffered with the disease for 30 years without being diagnosed. It is strange to consider depression as a friend. However, I believe this is worthy of consideration. The idea is that the unconscious mind rebels against the environment which is against our true self.
