Exclusion and Truth

Hi. I have seen so much exclusion of related facts, and a lack of width and depth, in the media and in people’s thinking recently. The noise is growing but no one is listening, and quite happy to exclude valid input or to seek real answers. Just more slogans and shutdowns; so many shouting voices […]

I Wonder

I do wonder if we did not judge a situation at face value, but considered the whole story… I wonder if we pushed aside the constructs of racial difference in our minds, and saw only other people…If we just saw another human, and came to their aid in ways small and large… I wonder if […]

Love and Effort

It seems incredible that race is still an issue, or that anyone believes they are better humans because of the colour of their skin. Ideas of cultural and political superiority would be the same.   I saw recently that unity and justice are…spiritual issues, not political ones. Our position on the political spectrum and love for […]

A Reflection 2020

  The lack of love and humility is now a tangible pain surrounding us.   Have we not seen enough trouble? Are we not sick of the pain visited by each other, on each other? Don’t we all yearn for kindness and love, and caring support? Have the endless new ideologies of the last one […]

Against

The struggle against. Against people who drive us nuts, against our own inertia and apathy, against thoughts that make us sick to the stomach…against life’s challenges, and against doing what we know is right too; even against our own appetites that we know are not healthy. But, so many more againsts (new word) and targets […]

Building together

  I haven’t been blogging lately, as I have been busy writing novels. Life as usual has thrown up plenty of challenges and changes. It can throw up some big decisions too. I see many around me struggling, and I see a lot of fear and anger out there. Why is that we expect so […]

The future is in our hearts.

  Our future, individual and collective, arises from what we place in our hearts; in what we choose to love. These are our strongest intentions, and they guide and flavour all else. What we hold as important, what we love, shows us clearly who we are, what our lives are, and what they will be […]

Right and Wrong

  Mmmm, big question! What is right and what is wrong? A question that is so subject to our particular beliefs; especially ones deeply held.   Right and wrong is a huge question. One that is all too quickly answered by closed minds of all kens, and also something that has been blurred to all hell, […]

Measure

  Just recently, I had someone close to me have a sudden health crisis; one that almost ended their life. The amazing thing was, that when this happened, I saw this person much more clearly for what she had done in her life; not for who she was, so much. It more than occurred to […]

Exploration

  I watch this world, and I engage, and learn…hopefully. I engage with those who do not agree with me, and those who do, but usually more so those with some openness of mind, as I find closed minds are of all kens and less likely to produce anything new; and I attempt to learn, […]
