…and now, really act like you’re awake

To be wide awake though challenged is more powerful by far than to be asleep and at relative ease…Its time to step into our awake state and fully own it now. Continue reading

On the other hand…

Working with quantum healing, to quickly (urgently) put right this world and our personal health (its all the same) requires that we work equally with both the manifest and not-yet-manifest realms; yes, it involves getting real and practical, down and dirty with our world “as is” to make the shifts we desire…we simply can’t favour one over the other, for our attention, any more. Sorry! Continue reading

Could 5G hasten our extinction?

Very little of the (real) news about 5G makes happy reading but if there’s one piece of information that I can’t seem to shake out of my head, its that it could be devastating to all the bees that are … Continue reading

The terrible responsibility of “just knowing”

This latest phase of technology, known as 5G, is being rolled out regardless of the lack of any significant “data” to demonstrate it will not significantly harm life on this planet (and plenty to suggest it will…); rushed through like some sort of shotgun wedding to cover the tracks of something else that is gestating on the other side of it. I’m no luddite, I love some of what technology can do, but I recognise when vested interest has got the upper hand over human and planetary wellbeing; and, once this is “switched on”, do we really think that those who control it are going to switch it back off, for any justification whatsoever? Have you even heard about the effect on the trees, the bees, the birds and the effect on plant growth, water, our very ecosystem? If this continues, I believe we will see one nefarious action after the other, “justified” by the drive to grab this new technology and with all of our previous niggles about the eco-crisis overshadowed into oblivion by a giant monster of an eco-meltdown, caused by playing with matches before we know enough about fire.

Revisiting the Venetian labyrinth

What can we learn from the dying stars of the previous era; those places that thrived without apparent rhyme or reason due to a particular mix in their qualities? There’s much to learn when we come to realise that certain places asserted a particular energy (first) and then humans came along and interpreted that energy through their actions, expressing them as what looks like human life, human decisions, human preoccupations, human mastery. So what made people settle in this swampy, mosquito-ridden place, for instance; what made them just so determined to be here that they exercised all their powers of ingenuity to build where there was almost nothing to build on, to keep innovating, starting over from scratch when the waters reclaimed all their efforts, learning from their mistakes in order to build a city that became an empire and a spiritual, cultural, commercial tour de force of the separation era? What can we take away from that, on the inside, once we come to understand that the global mind is a mirror-image of the human mind, with all the same bells and whistles? My experiences of 30 years visiting this extraordinary place thew up some answers for me earlier this month. Continue reading

Being the unpruned tree

We should make room for some wildness in our gardens; it keeps us mindfully connected to the earth and it leads to interesting, surprising and oh-so important new experiences. Some pruning, here and there, asking the garden what it needs, can be helpful; yes, but there is no place for dubiously motivated shears in the next phase of our human adventure. Some would have us all as neatly trimmed and uniform as a garden made up of identical topiary but there’s a whole other tree that we’ve forgotten about (you could call it a Tree of Life); one that is so vast and other-dimensional (though ever-present) that many have fogotten how to look up and see it there… Continue reading

Cutting through all the crap

With the launch of my fifty-second year, why do I suddenly feel we are gripping the white-knuckled grip of a culture on the edge of a cliff and that I can no longer sweep these observations under my rug? And once-benign places and processes, preserved by “institutions”, unsettle and concern me; I seem to see through these attempts at their management on our behalf, cutting through their crap like a hot knife through butter now, my rose-tinted goggles removed. Such institutions hold the long-established, seldom questioned, trust of the people…and yet, what if it turns out, they are as misguided as they could be, the very band continuing to play as we all march to our demise? Until we question our way out of the entrenched normality of a previous age, we have no hope of seeing what is really going on before our very eyes. Continue reading
