...Unique open honest, fearless and in awe of just being alive .... Benjamin Smythe on his web page says

In December of 2008,
under the starlit sky in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California,
I looked up from a desperate and exhausted place in my life and whispered:
“God?”
Nothing happened and everything answered.
The stars, the trees, the cars, the snow, the body, thoughts…everything.
The answer has never stopped answering.
This is the answer. This.

 

 

 

Ben offers (in his own words)

’kind, direct inquiry into the common conflicts of being alive.
And say’s
‘My life is a laboratory that I experiment with.
I share my notes from these experiments.
Take what works for you and leave the rest.
Best of luck on your adventure.’


Benjamin Smythe ... Amongst many things …is a creative wordsmith ….and plays with sentences and what he makes clear is that for him …
‘No one is in charge. No one is coming. No one is safe. Everything is over.
Language is the only thing that is alive.’

He doesn't claim to be enlightened .... Simply open to experimenting with  his life and willing to support those who resonate to play in the same way. 

For me he is radiant, wild, kind, funny. full of love and I am glad  he is my friend ….. Welcome to a rare gem
Welcome to the animal known as  Benjamin Smythe - -Tina Vallely

    Big THANXXX to all who helped make it happen and create such a lovely warm (in both senses!), intimate, open atmosphere. I came feeling horrible and left knowing it's the imaginary road blocks my mind throws out to stop me seeing what is actually there.
