I listen; I read; I watch. The world spins in a dizzying dance of order unfolding; lives and ways of life flung far and near. And through it all, I hold one thought: Who do I choose to become? My choice – my world… and each will be a reflection of the other.”

Things are not always as they seem. For more than two decades, Graham Hancock has devoted his life to asking questions and considering the possibilities that lie just outside the boundaries of habits of mind.
As a speaker at the 2012 Tipping Point Prophets Conference., the following presentation offers the ‘big picture’ on a lifetime of discovery. Amongst its numerous and significant challenges to our existing ‘truths’, the underlying process is one of challenging dogma; and in this case, the archeological dogma that has ruled, for far too long, our perceptions of ourselves, our world and our potential. Judge for yourself how much of our ‘reality’ is in fact, a fiction handed down from one generation to the next. Our best hope lies in our willingness to challenge ourselves.

Sexual, Sensual and Spiritual Beings is not an answer but a boundless exploration of the questions that we often dare not ask, even in the privacy of our own minds. As a place to start, ask yourself: Who am I if I am not my gender?
The following TED Talk with Jeremy Jackson says it all: “The thing we really need to fix is ourselves!”
As we look outside ourselves, hoping/waiting to find the ‘other’ who is responsible and who will ‘make it right’, we are left blind to our own contribution to the growing devastation that we see around us. No longer unable to close our eyes to the inevitable truth that relentlessly pursues our attention – with more and more evidence mounting from one day to the next – we are left standing at the precipice of our own exponential potential: will we or won’t we?
Nothing in our world changes until we do. Why is this so difficult for us to understand? Because we are so determinedly – and often brutally – taught not to see what we see, hear what we hear and know what we now. Today, the cost of that context for living has woven an inescapable web of our own increasingly rapid demise.
Jeremy Jackson speaks with the simplicity that comes from the wisdom of a ‘knowing’ that is deeper than his fear. His presentation is one that is offered, eyes open; and with the indifference that comes from having surrendered hope for the far more potent opportunity of awakened presence. And ultimately, it boils down to a simple choice. Will we or won’t we… change ourselves.
At this time in our history, we have nothing to lose by being willing to discover: How else might I choose to live my life, today? Perhaps in that question, we will become both willing and able to live meaningfully and live mindfully. Such are the choices that can make our voracious and often mindless consumption, obsolete.
