WORTHY OF LOVE  [new poem]

Some say those you love must be worthy
of that love, and if they’re not, then you
should never waste your love upon them,
shrewdly saving it for 1 who worthy of it is.
This poet used to firmly reason this way too,
until he realised that there can be not one Read the rest of this entry »

Vaughan Williams’ Glorious 5th Symphony

Posted on Updated on

THIS MUSIC REPRESENTS MY MOOD TODAY — heartfully wistful, strangely valedictory, gently profound, and full of a yearning for that-which-cannot-yet-be-reached. The 5th Symphony of the English composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams, is one which reflects great beauty, honour, glory and everything noble and virtuous about life which is nostalgically lurking on the hinterland of the universe and in a hidden corner of our hearts. This is, to my mind, the most beautiful piece of pure music ever written. It is certainly one of the most spiritual pieces of music ever composed. Astonishingly, it was written at the height of the Second World War and first performed at the BBC Proms in June 1943 (with the composer himself conducting). Vaughan Williams was inspired to Read the rest of this entry »

THE TIME HAS COME [new double sonnet]

There’s much fine-trimming going on round here;
I’m slimming down my world to just a flame —
a single candle burning bright and clear.
To keep my equilibrium’s the aim.

So those who make false claims will be the first
to get the axe from my uncensored hand.
Next, constant rudeness which is interspersed
with hubris and disdain will get you banned. Read the rest of this entry »

“Thinkers” [new song video]

Posted on

🔥🤯 LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #55, “Thinkers” 🤯🔥 Written yesterday, this is a song which grew out of the concept of another song, entitled “Blinkers”. I prefer “Thinkers”. It’s more suited to the needs of our time. I wanted a song which would be more encouraging rather than simply observational. It’s more upbeat than many of my songs have been lately. It’s a new era. The lyrics are below:

Once upon a time, I wrote a song.
I called it “Blinkers” — but I was wrong.
It’s not about the blinkers people wear;
and so another song I hereby share:

[1st Refrain]
It’s called “Thinkers”! (c’est necessaire)
Prefer “Thinkers”! (for thoughts we wear)
Let’s have Thinkers (to show we care)
Um-hmm…

I’m not talking here about IQ.
Thinking’s something which we ALL can do.
We don’t need to have a Ph.D
to let our brains become what they should be.

[2nd Refrain]
We need Thinkers! (who understand)
Just be Thinkers! (and make a stand)
Be deep Thinkers! (now take my hand)
Oh yeah…

Have you ever thunked a startling thought
which you then think that you should not ought?
That policeman’s planted deep in you
by people frightened what your thoughts can do!

[3rd Refrain]
World needs Thinkers! (fearless ones)
Outright Thinkers! (with minds that stun)
Piercing Thinkers! (’cause thinking’s fun)
For real…

The evil folks who think they run this show
must crush your thoughts so that you can’t grow.
They want you mindless watching your TV
on which they exercise their sophistry.

[4th Refrain]
They’re scared of Thinkers (who see right through)
They hate Thinkers! (that’s me and you)
So love Thinkers! (there are too few)
Uh-huh…

This ain’t about mundanities,
brain-ticklers, or some thoughts that tease.
The need for serious thoughts is grave
if your mind’s no more to be enslaved.

[5th Refrain]
Embrace Thinkers! (with all your soul)
Seek out Thinkers! (that should be your goal)
Your tribe’s Thinkers! (helps you to be whole)
So true…!

   [Vocal bridge]
   The thinking I mean
   ain’t just cerebral.
   You’re not a machine
   who’s trapped in a skull…

Our Creator gave us all a brain
so we could find our way back again
to what we’re put on earth to truly be:
avatars of Light who are strong and free.

[6th Refrain]
That means Thinkers! (who see what’s real)
Free-range Thinkers! (who more than feel)
Outright Thinkers! (who will not keel)
Oh yeah…!

In school they taught you all just what to think
so your minds would come to be in sync
with the powers which work behind the scene,
so you’d then be used as their machine.

[7th Refrain]
So be Thinkers! (a rebel force)
Brave bold Thinkers! (who’ve gone back to Source)
Untainted Thinkers! (with love, of course)
Alrite…!

When your thinking’s finally your own,
you’ll no longer merely be a clone
of those who want to make you think like them.
Your integrity will blossom then.

[8th Refrain]
You’ll be Thinkers! (in word and deed)
You’ll see Thinkers! (within your feed)
Just free-Thinkers (born to lead)
Woohoo…!

Something interesting which you should know:
Thinking opens up the rate of flow
exponentially; it’s like a dam
which bursts its wall, so then you can…

[9th Refrain]
become Thinkers! (in a full-time sense)
All-out Thinkers! (without a fence)
Profound Thinkers! (it’s so intense)
It is…!

Letting Go [new song video]

Posted on Updated on

 

🎬 LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #54 🎬, “Letting Go”. Here’s a new song written as a result of the feedback I received from a post the other day, entitled “People Among Your Close Friends or Family to Remove Yourself From”. The first line of the song, “Learning to let go is not an easy thing to do”, popped into my head and the rest flowed from there. Here are the full lyrics: Read the rest of this entry »

People to Remove Yourself From…

Posted on Updated on

Screenshot (22)

I’VE BEEN MAKING THESE IMAGES AGAIN. Not a ‘meme’, strictly speaking; but consider it a prose poem, if you will. It is our solemn duty to free ourselves of such traits of character. That is what self-awareness is all about. I am referring in the post to those who exhibit any one (or more) of those traits as an unchanging part of their character. As far as I am concerned, anyone who habitually emits such destructive behaviour has no place anywhere near my inner circle. Anyone who puts up with that will inevitably find Read the rest of this entry »

Abraham our Father – Jerusalem our Mother [substantial update]

Posted on Updated on

Annotation 2020-07-08 133817

This is a substantial update of an article that was originally begun in the late 1990s concerning the relationship between modern day Israel and the Israel of the Bible. It answers the questions “Is modern Israel the Promised Land of the Bible?”, “Should all Jews have returned to the land of Palestine to create the modern state of Israel?”, “Should disciples of Christ be celebrating Jewish festivals, wearing prayer shawls and blowing shofars?”, “Will Christ return and reign from a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem?”, “Are the ‘times of the gentiles’ just a temporary ‘Plan B’ parenthesis before God begins to deal again with His real people, the Jews?”, “Are there two different classes of believers today, with Jews as the real thing and gentile believers being somehow inferior and second-class afterthought add-ons?”, and much more.

This article has been improved in numerous ways with many additions and edits, plus typos have been corrected, hyperlinks have been refreshed and new ones added. It now contains almost 32,000 words and is the equivalent of a 100-page paperback book. Read the rest of this entry »

“I Would…” [new song video]

Posted on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #53: “I Would…”. Here is a new song which speaks of immersive, what I call “holistic” love in a way which transcends mere infatuation, showing how a real sexual relationship involves not just the physical but the whole person. I hope it moves you. Here are the lyrics:

I would bathe me in your blood
if you were real.
And spectators, please don’t
hold me by my heel.
For no portion must be spared
and I give my ‘all’ right there.
Such completion is the spark
which one must feel. Read the rest of this entry »

Slippery Slope [new poem]

Slippery Slope

The days roll by
showering down
around my ears
like dutiful confetti
at a shotgun wedding
while my flamethrower
of unfulfilled retardant
dreams engulfs them all
in oxygen-starved nostalgia Read the rest of this entry »

I’m an Unashaméd Nutcase! [new poem]

Posted on Updated on

I'm an Unashamed Nutcase

I was HopSkipJumping through a glade
one strangesome Summer’s day when
I ‘lost my marbles’ in the kind of way
which seems to irk straitjacket friends
who revel in their self-appointed roles
to judge the sane as being ‘round the bend’.

They fell covertly from my pocket as I ran
with joy across the desert of this world,
although I was not really disconcerted but Read the rest of this entry »
