Cruisin' for Understanding

Surprised by how his views of his life have changed after the cruise, Jazzy prods us with questions so that we can help him understand his experience that became a milometer of distance and just a little juxtaposition. Is there a way to get a "milometer of distance" from ourselves without going on holiday?

"Other Beings" -- Season 3, Welcome back Jimmy...
Season Three begins with Jimmy's return....The Original Cast is reunited -- a hearty welcome to back to Jimmy. "Other Beings" is inspired by Jimmy's and Jaswant's work in the Labyrinth's Readers Course. As they begin this course, Jimmy is reminded of the need to connect to and communicate with other beings, and this reminder prompted him to bring it to our weekly conversations. All three cast members are well versed in the readings from the American Book of the Dead, and their conversation springs from this. The course the Jimmy and Jazzy are taking intends to help readers make contact (or better contact) with the being. Often these prayers or instructions are sent to those who have recently passed. In a broader sense, the conversation centers on applying what has been learned. How does one practically apply the great knowledge? It's nice to know things, that's for sure, but how does one put it into practice? How does one apply what one knows? Welcome to Season Three of THE THREE-HEADED MAN
