Podcast Episode 8: Consciousness and Following the Bliss of Curiosity with Boyd Martin

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

Feel the difference in the moment that can last a lifetime. Listen to episodes on Spreaker, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or visit the YouTube archive for Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Barrett.

Consciousness and Following the Bliss of Curiosity.

Life is all about curiosity in action. Two legged and four legged animals are filled with curiosity. It is what takes our innocence to the next action and what that next choice creates. My friend Boyd Martin and I will consider how curiosity plays into our being both Consciousness and Self and leads us into maturing, comedy and tragedy and transcendence.

Friend: Podcast Guest

Boyd Martin

Boyd Martin is curious. As a writer and musician, he explores life and consciousness. He is sound engineer, composer and arranger of the music for this podcast.

Metaphysics and yoga as a teenager helped contribute to his classic hippie rebel persona, more interested in the inner human experience and consciousness than than business. His music and radio broadcasting skills have crafted a career as DJ, voice talent, award winning jazz musician and composer.

His life includes his recovery from years in Los Angeles as a mid-level executive for Scientology and as the Voice of Dianetics on the air. He was part of the Portland, Oregon blues music scene for 30 years, publishing the popular Portland Live Music Guide for several years. He wrote for one of the Portland weeklies, as the music editor. At the same time, he was involved with the World Peace University and their shortwave radio station in Costa Rica and as their newsletter editor.

Boyd got interested in the nascent "ET disclosure" movement, and "alternative history" studies, mainly starting with the “Cosmic Awareness” courses of Paul Shockley, Jose Arguelles’ "Mayan Factor" project, and Terence McKenna's "Time Wave Zero" I Ching research project. He started the Northwest Disclosure Project under the auspices of Dr. Steven Greer's Disclosure Project.

His continuing spiritual journey included studying with various healers, shamans, channelers, and teachers. He certified in Matrix Energetics, Access Consciousness, and Dianetics.

His company, Pure Energy Rx helps people explore life with energetic medicines. Having recently moved back home to Kansas, he continues to live his mission of advocating for higher consciousness, mindfulness and human potential.

Over 30 years ago he had a vision of the Mystic Broadcast Network which he was able to bring to fruition in the last few years where he offers great music and thought-provoking inquiry.

Boyd publishes The Quantum Health Newsletter, the "This Quantum Life" podcasts, Pure Energy Rx, and produces and is DJ for the Mystic Broadcast Network Radio.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk

Curiosity means a strong desire to know or learn something. It also means a strange and unusual object or fact. What is it like to view your daily life in relation to your curiosity?

Ageless: WisdomsCookies – Food for thought

“Children are not only innocent and curious but also optimistic and joyful and essentially happy. They are, in short, everything adults wish they could be.“
Carolyn Haywood
“My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities.“
Mario Testino
“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.“
Albert Einstein
“Without aggression, it becomes possible to think well, to be curious about differences, and to enjoy each other's company.“
Margaret J. Wheatley

Roots: Associated WorksTree roots

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.“
Don Juan (Carlos Castaneda)
“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up.“
Terence McKenna
“Enlightenment is not something that occurs in the future, after 50 years of sitting cross-legged and saying 'OM.' It is right here, in this instant. The reason you’re not experiencing this state of total peace and timelessness is because it is being resisted.“
David R. Hawkins
“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.“
Mark Twain
“If it's true that we are all from the center of a star--every atom--then we are all the same thing. Even a Coke machine or a cigarette butt in the street in Buffalo, are made from atoms that came from a star. They've all been recycled thousands of times, as you and I. And therefore, it's only me out there. so what is there to be afraid of? There's nothing to be afraid of because it's all us.“
George Carlin

Tom’s meditation this week is “Curiosity.“ Listen to the meditation, here. You'll find more at Interlude: An Internet Retreat.

Journey: Janet's BlogQuan Yin

I consider Curiosity to be one of the most instinctive drives we can know in being alive. All animals demonstrate it. It leads to questioning, creativity and actions. It leads to exploring and looking for something different or just because. It leads to maturing and finding one’s place under the sun. It can shorten a life or extend a life and the quality of that life. Continue reading…
