Paranormal Podcast 516: What Happens After We Die?
And I nearly made a huge mistake when writing that post and I had to readjust the post, because I had mistakenly thought it was Terence Stamp who played the boat captain in that movie, but it was actually the similar looking actor (to my eyes anyway) Udo Kier.
I was actually glad it wasn't Terence in that movie after-all, because I was worried for his health when I noticed his eyes were bulging out of his head a lot more as he was ageing.
Terence did star with Matt Damon in the movie
'The Adjustment Bureau' though, which was based on a PKD story.
'Mind Body Spirit' magazine I had bought back in 2016, where Terence is interviewed about his life and book
'Rare Stamps: Reflections on Living, Breathing and Acting'.
It also states in that article that Terence has been a patron of Watkins bookstore for many years.
Watkins Books are the publishers of 'Mind Body Spirit' magazine, the same magazine behind the annual top 100 list of spiritual teachers.
There were certain things in the movie I liked, but overall the elephant in the room was the "happy ever after" romantic angle that bugged me.
The only reason I decided to read
'Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia' was because I met
Mark Holden at the Byron Writer's Festival this year and bought and read his book 'My Idol Years'.
Another book that I would never have seen myself reading earlier this year before the festival.
'Eat, Pray, Love' that inspired him when he first got thyroid cancer.
That line was "bel far niente", which basically means to do nothing beautifully.
I started reading 'Eat, Pray, Love' on Friday and as you can see I'm not that far into it, but it already explains things a little better than the movie does.
Now, I had only watched the movie the second time a month or two ago and I wondered how that second marriage of Elizabeth's was going, so I Googled around and found out it was over and that she was now in a same sex partnership.
I found a pod-cast series that Elizabeth Gilbert had based around her current book 'Big Magic' called 'Magic Lessons' where she interviews and gives encouragement to various guests.
I noticed on the show's menu that the last podcast was launched on my birthday of September 23rd, 2016 called 'Show Up Before You are Ready' and that the second last podcast was released on the day of my father's cremation/funeral of September 16th, 2016 and called 'Leap into the Fire'(?!).
Looks like the universe has a very morbid sense of humour when it comes to handing out personal synchronicites to me.
So I loaded all of the podcasts onto my iPad and binged listened to them over a few days while working around the house.

Which brings everything back full circle to the line that inspired Mark "bel far niente", which in turn inspired me to pick up a copy of 'Eat, Pray, Love' and start reading it on Friday.

Elizabeth's partner had passed away on Friday.
Rayya Elias, the partner of Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, has died.
