Every Story

Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. We listen and we judge; good/bad, long/short, interesting/boring, pleasant/painful, rational/irrational, comedy/tragedy, classic/trite, inspiring/depressing; the list could go on. Sometimes we listen eagerly and don’t want the story to end. Other times we are bored and can’t wait for the story to finish. Every story is unique and will resonate differently to others. We use the filter of our mind and the same story will be different to each individual just as the stories of our lives will be unique to ourselves and the filters we perceive with but isn’t this a similitude of life?


Author: Alan Swift

As of the beginning of the year 2018 I have been incarnated in this mortal coil for 54 earth years. I tend to have a stoic outlook on life and have tried many spiritual practises, both Eastern and Western in origin. I have a level 3 in counselling skills and run a an informal photography group on a volunteer basis. I also volunteer for a carers group. I have practised meditation for over 30 years and am well read in alternative philosophy and New Age literature. I enjoy films, dogs, eating out, drawing, pass the pencil, walking, technology, shamanic journeying, ACIM, dreamwork, backgammon, and have a cockatiel named Bob. I have been with my fiancée for over 13 years now and still enjoy our relationship.
