Why a Flat Earth Bothers Me

The internet these days is full of flat Earthers it seems attempting to wake us up to the biggest lie ever perpetrated on humanity. Some of these people are conspiracy theory junkies, others are religious people who literally believe the Bible. However, many seem to be bright individuals who started thinking about the problem and came to the conclusion that the Earth is flat. Once you get to that point then everything is a big lie. NASA, Science, Scientists, Teachers, Astronauts…. everything is cock and bull story. The Moon landings must be a hoax is the next step. Anything that disproves a flat Earth is a part of the cover up, conspiracy, lies….. I have given the flat Earth theory some thought as well. I fly a lot. I see

Oi! Wake Up!

In recent months I have been dreaming a lot. Dreams that go on and on even allowing for a bathroom break. Today I noted that this type of dreaming always seems to occur in periods of realization for me. I haven’t properly meditated in months and I have been thrashing around like a beached whale unable to act on anything. I marked this down perhaps to depression and periodically talked myself into starting again. However, each new initiative was short lived. Then a couple of nights ago I saw a movie on TV. It made me realize that all too often I look outside for answers that actually are to be found inside. Suddenly, a rush of realizations came to me. One was that I already know what I need

Project Some Love…

In the recent past few months there seems to be so much fear, hate and misplaced anger around. It is everywhere – politics, social media, the news…… I reckon its all done to control us and stop us from reaching our potential and destiny. The more afraid we are the more negative our thoughts….Those thoughts are an energy that ripples out into the matrix of reality and colors everything they touch. Well, you know, there are enough people doing this – projecting fear and negativity and hate so why don’t you and I do something different. I am an Aquarian after all and therefore a tad different but I reckon it might be fun and spiteful on all the doom and gloomers, hate and divide and woe is me merchants

Chaos Rising

A couple of decades ago, as walls in Europe fell, one felt as if perhaps humanity was on a good path. There was a sense of the old restrictions falling away and the smell of opportunity was in the air. One felt as if the forces of chaos were momentarily in retreat and the forces of light began to move forward. People wanted their freedom, they were ready to embrace the new structures that were emerging and the ugly side of chaos – nationalism – was in retreat. Contrast that with today. Nationalism is rampant again seized upon by Politicians eager to point fingers at scapegoats like immigrants, Mexicans, Homosexuals and any other group perceived to be the villain and easy to blame. The UK wants out of the EU,

The Wounded Kings

This morning as I meditated I arrived at a startling conclusion. I have come to believe that we create our own reality via our thoughts and subconscious mind. I am the microcosm that reflects out a macrocosm and vice versa. Obviously, the external world is a co-created reality but nonetheless, I am the master of much of my own destiny and create a lot of that external reality. For some reason, my meditative thoughts were about the wounded King. The Fisher King of legend. In this legend, the Fisher King has a ‘thigh’ wound and this reflects in his Kingdom which becomes barren. The ‘thigh’ wound is really a wounded penis and the King is symbolically unable to balance polarities as a result of such a wound. This imbalance of

Thoughts on Higher Purpose

‘All is as it should be’ – Is it? Actually, it probably is. We tend to think of ourselves moving through time consciously making decisions that impact our future selves and the world around us. The more likely truth is that we are creatures of habit and subconscious desires and habits. We are unbalanced and our physical, emotional and mental bodies are unaligned or we are simply not in control. Free will? I have come to the conclusion that for the normal person, we probably have little or no free will. If time is a construct of the mind – and increasingly the evidence from all sides suggests that it is – then how can we have free will? More likely our entire life is already mapped and plotted and rather

Write Drunk, Edit Sober

Apparently, that’s an Ernest Hemingway quote. It is quite brilliant and sums up how I write – either drunk with alcohol or spirit…. Just not sure I edit…. sober or otherwise – at least not here…   Write Drunk, Edit Sober I sit here with my white wine Ziggy plays on the stereo The keyboard scattered with Crumbs from lunch My fingers tapping As I am rapping With words I’m drunk Certainly not sober And this poem will never be edited It may be reddited To see what you all think But do you think I care When I share my inner self Gathering dust Sitting on a shelf No one reads my stuff anyway I got lots to say But no one listens So I’m just another drunk Talking

Right vs Wrong

Is it me or does the line between right and wrong blur the older that you get? We live in what seems to be a duality – there is two sides to everything.  As a child we are taught black and white, right and wrong yet as we age, we become aware that choices are not so stark… in fact, choices are complex things. I do believe rightly or wrongly that many sell their ‘souls’ in the pursuit of ‘happiness’ in that they simply stop trying to judge and give in to the demands around them. Others however, continue to seek an answer and carefully analyze each and every choice.  They end up sitting on some sort of fence never actually experiencing the true value of life. I’m not sure I

The Judge Within Me

I have a dilemma. It’s been one of those lifelong dilemmas if I am honest. Here it is. I am interested in people’s thoughts on this one. Inside of me is one character or persona who I will term The Judge. He sits in judgement (reminds me a bit of the Tarot image of The Emperor card to be honest) of me, life and everything. Often, He is quick to speak – “That’s wrong, that’s right, How dare he? What an ass” and so on. He is also the faculty that I use to decide what is right and wrong and what is truth or fiction. He has a purpose. A valid purpose and yet….. I have another aspect that tells me I should not judge and that I am

Shhhhh – Let me Tell You A Secret (Don’t tell anyone)

Imagine. Imagine if with a few words and an attitude you could manifest whatever you wanted in your life? What would you ask for? Think of that a different way. There you are polishing the silverware and suddenly, a genie appears. He grants you three wishes. What would they be? Now, let us complicate this scenario. Let’s imagine that rather than ask you for the three wishes, the genie reads your mind and delivers on your first three thoughts. How might that go? “Oh….. I want a big fast car, er, wait, no, I would like to be rich, stop, wait, maybe just happy…..” I would think that most folk would end up very disappointed with the result of their wishes and the genie might very well be extremely confused
