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.

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

Frazzled or evolving?

Are we frazzling our way to self-destruction…or “just” well on the way to transitioning into a whole new paradigm? Continue reading

Let’s look at it another way…

If what I’m hearing from my daughter is anything to go by, a huge wave of talented and driven young people are now talking as though their main ambition, post-graduation, is to leave these shores to live and work elsewhere, … Continue reading

Living life intensely

Being prepared to go where we know-not what the ending could possibly be is part of this paradigm change; we have no choice but to face the sheer impossibility of a future, measured by old standards, in order to hold space for something brand new to emerge (in fact this lack of a predictable ending is the very clue we are getting close). Faced with such a reality, we have no other option but to experience life intensely, moment to moment, navigating by its rapidly appearing and exploding stars scattered across a vast universe of sensations… Continue reading

Loving all your differences into their highest form

You’re very different to anyone else. You know it, you’ve always known it, you may have even hidden it, buried it deep and dark, masked it in a variety of ways, tried to heal it, medicate it, to soften it, … Continue reading

Dare to become your own master

Once you start to crystallise, you notice how your interest in endless master classes, self-improvement programs and other subscriptions starts to wane. Whilst you want to keep the expansive dialogue going, your desire to “sign up” and even pay for other people’s know-how will probably reach an all-time low . This can feel like you’re losing your self-improvement grip; or you may panic that a side-effect of becoming more embodied is that you no longer seem to be interested in “spirituality”, which used to be your biggest passion. This probaby isn’t so (at all), but there’s an important and necessary shift taking place and here it is… Continue reading

When did Earth become our least favourite thing?

There’s a disconnect between people and the environment and it has only become worse since the age of the mobile phone. Now, people walk around as though in their own biosphere since all of their own friends (who share their same views) and, in fact, their own mini-verse in digital form is carried around with them wherever they go via the device that seldom leaves their hand. We seem to be part of the generation that is, at once, the most informed yet most tragically naive since truth is something people get to custom-build from what they choose to focus their attention on (and there are just so many choices now). Earth has apparently become the least favourite, least attention garnering, most taken-for-granted, thing in most people’s minds and this is a balance that needs to be tipped or we are truly done for; there’s a truth we would all have to share!

Why the songbird stops singing: the need to be at liberty to change our minds

When we force ourselves into projects that our hearts are no longer in, just because we said we would do them, our emotions build up in places where they don’t even see light of day; turning into the chronic issues of the next era… Continue reading

Synergy realised

We can encompass the paradox of freedom within design as soon as realise we are the living proof for it. I’m not giving you much more of a taster of this post than that since its also too balanced in its wholeness to pick apart… Continue reading
