Morning! - Morning! I consider you a friend of mine... and I think you're in your right mind... Yeah! Thanks! Where is this Mayan person?...now Ah...I can't find her. I keep coming back here hoping that she'll turn up. Sometimes I wonder if I really ever did meet her. But she changed my life... Everything that I believe now started with what I learned from her. Did she say....exactly where she was from? Sure! The Pleiades. Ahm....did you ever question her claim to be... extraterrestrial? Are you kidding? I thought that she's gotten hold on some bad pot, or I had... Of course I didn't believe her. I told her that I didn't want to see her anymore, but she just kept finding me. And then, one morning....one morning she instructed me to go to the base of a particular foot hill ...and look up at a specific peak. Right over there! You know what happened? I'm not sure I really want to know... I looked up into the sky....and exactly over that specific peak I saw one of those flying discs... that I have heard the mountain people talked about. and hovered over me like she was teasing me... And then it started to descend...not far from me... I felt this strange vibrations all around me... like I was in a force field or something...and it didn't scared me... in fact, just the opposite It was weird...ahm, and I saw these four legs coming out from underneath it... and it landed.... real quite....it just sat there I was so drawn into it. It was so beautiful. It was this white, iridescent color.. I wanted to go over to it, but....something told me not to... and then it just showed up and disappeared... And after that experience I listened to Mayan.... Now what do you think? I don't know.. Why don't we go over by the ruins and...I still have...something I have to tell you. Why not? We could talk this. She sure had a lot to say about you... Me? Ahm... She told me that I was guided to bring you those African stones... Guided by whom? By her! Why? She said that we had something to do together... that we have met before in previous lives... and that some day you would want proof of that... What all this secrecy about it, David? Why couldn't you tell me this before? I couldn't tell you about Mayan until you were ready to hear it. The point is that I was to deliver those stones without either one of us knowing what was really going on... You ought to be a guide, a teacher, like me...I don't know why you're scared.???? scale? A teacher? I'm not a teacher, David. I'm a learner. Yeah....but you write. Oh, no...you don't. Oh, you're crazy....I'm supposed to write about all this? I don't even know what I think about this. Mayan said that because of the way you write, you could help to teach people. I suppose to write a book about my past lives and....several extraterrestrial I've known, right? I could just kick you! You'd be surprised to how many people there are out there that want to know more about this.. But then you do it David, you'll be the crazy one. There is nobody crazy here, relax...just relax. Everybody in the world would like to know the truth! The truth?...What truth? The simple truth of who they are and where they come from... and there is a whole lot going on that they've been taught. Yeah, but that might be your truth, David. I don't know what my truth is yet. And I'm not just the kind of person that can go around and tell another people what their truth is. Then just tell them about your search. My search? My personal search from my own identity is something I fell comfortable with That's why it's all right with me to explore whether I might have lived a past life or something... But the truth of talking to extraterrestrials? Oh God, David, please! Are you sure you picked the wrong line of work if you're afraid of public humiliation. You think I planned to be a public personality? We're all planned what we do, in order to learn and serve, you know that. Maybe this is the karma that you chose for yourself this time around. Am I being set up here? Are you telling me about this Mayan person because you're setting me up to write a book? About all this stuff which just incidently would include you? What? God! Answer me! Answer me! Calm down! Make more progress... Progress? Progress? You and you're pontificating. You're talking about upsetting everything mankind believes in and then to replacing it with something outrageous! It's metaphysical twilight zone mambo jumbo and you call it "progress". That's funny! Mayan think that our priority is mambo jumbo... She thinks we live in the Dark Ages. Will you just take a look into the world, for God's sake. Isn't it clear that we need a change...and soon? I don't wanna talk about this anymore! You know something? I was real wrong about you. You're a nuts! Wait a minute! Mayan told me to tell you one thing if you had a hard time with this. She said "in order to get to the fruit of the tree, you have to go out on a limb" Oh, my God! I don't believe this is happening to me! I got to get out of here! Wait a minute! No, I got to see what's the meaning. I want to go home, I want to get my old way of thinking back... You stay in your fantasy world, if you want to. It's not for me! It's not fantasy! It happend. It IS happening! And I didn't want to believe it anymore than you do! Shirley, it took me two chips?? down here and two month of talking with Mayan before I was evenxxx she's almost got it up on me. And she was threatening what I called my sanity too! But after a while, I had to admit that she was making sense. Well, I can go along with a lot, David. But you're talking to a person from a place that it doesn't exists to me.//or it doesn't make sense to me?? Yeah, but it happened! And someone is behind those craftsxxx? What are you afraid of? I got to think for my self... -Shirley, let me explain... Mayan gave this to me.... -What is that? A bracelet! She said, if you wear it, it will...-I don't want this! What harm can it do? OK, I've got it. Will you let me go? Yes! -Thanks! That was probably the most confusing period of my whole life. I walked and I thought by myself for three days. Was David really crazy? Or it was, what he was saying, so threatening to me that I couldn't think straight. I always reacted negatively when I heard something that disturbed me or that I couldn't understand... Did I identify myself by what I couldn't understand or by what frightened me? Or could life actually be defined more by its possibilities than by its limitations? And was I under threshold of understanding that there might be people... out there that actually lived that way? With no sense of limitation?

Out on a Limb was an autobiographical book written by Shirley MacLaine in 1983 and adapted for television in 1986. The ABC Television miniseries starred Shirley MacLaine (playing herself), John Heard as "David Manning", and Charles Dance as "Gerry Stamford ". It details MacLaine's journeys through new-age spirituality. We follow MacLaine from California to various locations including New York and Europe, culminating in a life-changing trip to the Andes mountains in Peru. Central characters include "David" who is, according to MacLaine herself, a composite character, "Gerry Stamford", a married man and member of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, with whom MacLaine was having an affair, and real-life close friend and politician, Bella Abzug (played by Anne Jackson).
