I've played Nick Francis' playlist for the last five years.
It comes out on a Sunday morning.
Everyone takes the piss out of me because of the opening few lines but I don't care.
I just love the vibe.
It's about 18 minutes long and deals with two principal points: (1) the unformed happening of this moment; and (2) the labels we give to our everyday, ordinary experience.
If you're interested, I offer a limited number of places for coaching clients where I ask you to consider your direct experience of life and what it means to awaken to true self.

"charitable relief of the poor," especially as a religious duty, also "that which is given to relieve the poor or needy," Old English ælmesse "almsgiving, act of relieving the needy," from Proto-Germanic *alemosna (source also of Old Saxon alamosna, Old High German alamuosan, Old Norse ölmusa), an early borrowing of Vulgar Latin *alemosyna (source of Old Spanish almosna, Old French almosne, Italian limosina).
Q. Is it wrong to ask for support, financial or otherwise, for my 'work'?
I mean, come on, Ju, it's not as if you're living on the streets our without the ability to support myself.
Sorry, I know this might seem random but I'm concerned about asking for support on Patreon, Buy Me A Coffee and via Paypal when, as I've made clear here and elsewhere, I'm still working.
I mean, if I was totally reliant upon donations or alms then it might be a different matter.
It almost looks like I want my cake and...
Perhaps I should stop asking; indeed, I might be giving off the wrong impression.
But then again, I genuinely think that what I'm offering on Patreon (and here) has some value. Sure, that's a vain way of considering my writing and audio offerings, but then again, there is a cost, which I'd dearly like to try and cover. One thing I've not shared is the fact that I've got a half-decent Wordpress blog with a significant amount of content. If, as likely, I don't receive any support between now and 20 April 2020 then, save for the domain, I'll be forced to kill it off.( Collapse )
