We are consciousness examining and expressing
itself so that it can become increasingly aware
of its infinite capacity for being and evolving.
Our intentions express and create our reality
just as if we were dreaming lucidly.
Which is the highest level on the hollow-deck,
wake or dream, or even death?
Good dreams can be inspirations to bring in to
make reality fantastic enough to share.
We are the wilderness within
Screaming out for true expression.
Even when were sleeping,
Theres no escape from this obsession.

My sense of humour often gets me into trouble due
to people taking it too seriously!
My curiosity sometimes gets me into trouble too.
I wouldnt want to be without either of them
Try not to spoil kids too much as it leads to
unrealistic expectations from life which leads to
to situations and people. Real love seeks to
teach truth & balance.
Bankers are like spoilt brats who have grown up
without understanding love.
Theyre addicted to power & greed
because for them thats all there is.
If all our needs were met and we didnt have
any questions, life wouldnt be all that
Does boredom lead to playing twisted power games?
Even people who dont have their few basic
needs met can become incredible human beings
if their spirit is strong enough to survive.
If the spirit of wonder & curiosity stays
alive in us, then surely we will always have new
and always expand our creativity in response.
Even cats have questions like
Cant you see my bowl is empty?
Why dont you turn off the ***! rain
now? From their perspective we are gods!
There is an imperative to be in a process,
the energy & consciousness of life means for
us to be constantly
observing, learning & becoming.

All the nations singing their hearts out

Words to intrigue, inspire, examine,
Words to help us appreciate our world, our
selves, our games;
Words to dance our true soul fires
Words to invoke peace &
Words to create freedom and
Words to plant sacred seeds. and sing us back
Look everywhere. There are miracles and
curiosities to fascinate and intrigue for many
lifetimes:the intricacies of nature
and everything in the world and universe around
us from the miniscule to the infinite; physical,
chemical and biological
functionality; consciousness, intelligence and
the ability to learn; evolution, and the
imperative for life; beauty and other
abstract interpretations; language and other
forms of communication; how we make our way here
and develop social patterns
of culture and meaningfulness; how we organise
ourselves and others; moral imperatives; the
practicalities of survival and
all the embellishments we pile on top; thought,
beliefs, logic, intuition, ideas; inventing,
creating, information, knowledge;
emotions, sensations, experience, behaviour.
We are each unique individuals arising from a
combination of genetic, inherited, and learned
information, all of which can be
extremely fallible. Things taught to us when we
are young are quite deeply ingrained. Obviously
some of it (like dont stick
your finger in a wall socket) is very useful, but
some of it is only opinion an amalgamation
of views from people you just
happen to have had contact with. A bit later on
we have access to lots of other information via
books, media, internet etc,
but it is important to remember that most of this
is still just opinion, and often biased.
Even subjects such as history are presented
according to the presenters or
authors viewpoint, and science is
changing. Newspapers and TV tend to cover news in
the way that is most useful to them (and their
Research is also subject to the decisions of
funders and can be distorted by business
interests. Pretty much anyone can say
what they want on the internet, so our powers of
discernment need to be used to a great degree
Not one of us can have a completely objective
view as we cannot possibly have access to, and
filter, all knowledge available,
so we must accept that our views are bound to be
subjective. Our understanding and responses are
all very personal, and
our views extremely varied.
We tend to make each new thing fit in with the
picture we have already started in our heads,
but we often have to go back and adjust the
picture if we want to be honest about our view of
reality as we continually
expand it. We are taking in vast amounts of
information from others all the time, so need to
ensure we are processing that
to develop our own true reflection of who we are.
I was moved beyond words. The train ride
over the mountains from lake Titticaca to Cusco
reminded me of Africa where I grew up; and 4 days
walking on the Inca Trail, then more in the
just magnificent - time, space, and splendour.

Green and living jewels drip into my eyes"
from the poem "All Green and Living
Things" in the book "Terra
From the Prize winning poem - UNBORN in the book
Under the surface / her body is curled, / seed of
the one race, / shell of the world. // She is the
waterfall, / she is the womb, /
she is the bubble, /she is the tomb. // Her hair
flows upward, / blood red of the birth. / Her
arms are folded /
deep into the earth. // She is the fern, / she is
the bark, / she is the lantern, / she is the
dark. // Her eyes burn the flame /
of the old and the young. / Her breath is the
name / of each branch of each lung. // She is the
ingredient. / She is the blend. /
She is the beginning. / She is the end.

Empty, yet filled, spreading everywhere, inside,
Pulsing, fluctuating, breathing as part of one
Whispering, feeling, reflecting, flowing between
hot and cold,
Mineral and plant, dark and light, love and fear,
new and old.
Love ENDURES and works out ways of enduring the
other stuff. As long as you can communicate you
can work out issues,
but good communication seems to be one of the
weakest skills in human beings, so don't be
afraid to try and try different
ways of communicating, be patient. Don't be
afraid of seeking help either - the chance to
keep love alive is too important
to let fear get in the way.
Instead of letting our emotions run amok, we can
use our minds as tools to build or create
realities that serve us better.
We attract what we're meant to because we're
aware & self-empowered enough to choose most
of the time.
Other times we have lessons to learn.
When being objective, we can transcend and look
back at our constructs with powerful clarity;
instead of looking through them, which can give a
murky and distorted view.
We celebrate beauty in life and all its
possibility so we open it up for others and at
the same time for ourselves.
Enlightenment is not about cocooning ones
self, but about integrating more fully with both
your self and life.

How can we love ourselves
when we know how many mistakes
we have made, ugly things weve done,
even though we know others have done the same?
How can we love rather than despise the human
How can we ever know if things wouldve been
any better if wed done them a different
We never MEANT to hurt anybody,
we tried not to, but sometimes
that only ended up increasing the pain.
All we can do is focus on the positive,
the amazing things in the world,
in nature, and even in peoples souls.
Theres always two or more sides to
and also so many shades of grey.
So look for the colours instead, the glorious
Let yourself explore, be curious

Often these help release the pain
as well as express and celebrate the joy.
Should we have been born into this world?
Yes, even if only to learn to love despite
Yes, even if only to witness the stream

Yes, even if only for a short time to make some
sort of difference,
even if only to one other sentient being, a
place, or situation.
Yes, even if only to find out that there really

Or none of it would be there at all.
So, we can love ourselves
because we can see that we are incredible beings
with bodies and minds to allow us to do amazing

as well as the results we can achieve.
So we CAN love ourselves
because we can see that there is no reason
not to play and laugh and have fun,
or fight for what we think is right, or should be
even if its all one massive illusion.
At the end of the day we can at least sit back
and connect with the very essence of being
