INTRODUCTION: The Gloves Are Off!
Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve not written much for a while about the “state of the world”, its dirty chessboard, its madness or its crazy politics, or any other such nonsense. Instead, I’ve been immersing myself completely in the creation of music and poetry. That’s not only because I like it that way, but it’s because I’ve said more or less all that I have to say about it. It’s all on my blog in the articles tab, or in the book I wrote last year. I don’t bang drums for the drums’ sake. Neither would I bang them endlessly. Pointless. I don’t have an axe to grind or a chip weighing down my shoulder! I always share on a need-to-know basis. In any case, I don’t write about all that stuff as a kind of mental masturbation but as an incentive to develop a spiritual understanding of what lies behind it all — to see it as a manifestation of the spiritual battle raging across this cosmos, with Planet Earth as its central focus. However, in view of the farcical developments in the UK (🙄) and the way that so many are still so taken in and mesmerised by the whole charade (in other words, they take it seriously even though it’s all just a worthless show), I will just share some relevant material in this little piece, for what it’s worth; then I will shut up until there’s something new to say (though I know that few will read this or even care). Just so you know, I am not going to “pull any punches” here. The gloves have been removed. And if you are triggered or offended, please ask yourself why… and keep reading anyway. 😉 Read the rest of this entry »
⚡️THANK GOD FOR POETRY!⚡️ After a long life of experience and observation, I have to confess that I don’t really fit into this strangely-fallen world, in which the vast majority wears a mask, cares not about self-awareness, is only motivated by personal gain (no matter how much they may dress it up otherwise with virtue-signalling), has no real fidelity, has no sense of honour, is riddled with cultural baggage, is unable to think for himself or herself, practises wholesale wilful ignorance, is enslaved to fads and fashions, has no discernment or critical thinking processes, is moulded by conformity and Read the rest of this entry »
I’d love to live in a real land and world
WHERE people say just what they mean
and mean just what they say.
WHERE promises are staunchly kept
and day could not be meant as night
nor ever night mean day, for everywhere
I see such things inverted in this way:
darkness masquerades as “light”;
evil’s in disguise as “good”; bitterness
pretends it’s “sweet”; and even lies
are counterfeited as “the truth” so much
that few today know wrong from right. Read the rest of this entry »
🔥LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #39: “Fathomless”🔥. There is a nautical meaning to the word “fathomless”; but this song carries the metaphorical sense, as explained in the video. (See you there). In my head, there is a light band, string quartet and cor anglais. Definitely one for the next album! 😉 Here are the lyrics:
I’ve always swum to the bed of the sea;
have no desire just to skim.
Somehow the pull of the deep conquers me:
Love living out on a limb. Read the rest of this entry »
PROLOGUE: Music Mimics Spirit
In so many ways, music mimics spirit. In the realm of the arts, the manner in which music works is surely the nearest that one can get to spirit within this 3-D fallen world. With what we call music, in common with all sound, invisible vibrations are generated in the air which imperceptibly glide from the source to the human ear. But when what we call “notes” are struck harmonically, what we call music ensues. But where is that music in the air? Just grooving around in the ether waiting to connect with you! Within the confines of artistic expression, that is as near to spiritual communication that one can get; and it enters you at a level beneath your ordinary consciousness, which is why it can have a damning or enlightening effect, depending on what kind of music it is and how open (or vulnerable) you are to receiving it.
