I Am a Citizen of Nowhere!

Posted on

Snapshot_52

TO ANY BUDDING BUREAUCRAT OR APPARATCHIK OF THE STATE who may imagine this is their concern (although it’s none of anybody’s business [and yet, in a way, it’s everybody’s too]): I AM A CITIZEN OF NOWHERE — inhabitant of déjà vu. For I am not part of this wasteland world. Where I come from, a thesaurus (that is, a treasure-chest) of gemstone words has swirled inside all heads from long before they were a twinkle in an angel’s eye. Where I come from, it is irrational to fear to die — unnatural to never cry with tears of blesséd joy. Where I come from, bureaucracy would never calcify the Read the rest of this entry »

The Great Paradox of the Spiritual Life

Posted on

Snapshot_42

CHRIST SAID SOME VERY CHALLENGING WORDS about the pathway for the genuine spiritual pilgrim: “Enter through the narrow gate, because the gate is wide and the way is spacious that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. How narrow is the gate and difficult the way that leads to life, and there are few who find it!” Wow! Just meditate on those words for a while; for they sum up what is demanded if one is to be a serious disciple of Christ and follower of His Light. The gate is narrow and the way itself is difficult. The deep spiritual life is not attractive to the superficial dilettante, for such a person knows that there is the need for total dedication and personal sacrifice but comparatively few people are serious about personal change and genuine spiritual revelation… As Christ also said: “If anyone wants to become My disciple, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me”. This is the diametric opposite of the narcissism and self-obsession which is so prevalent across humanity.

The Fall of Truth in a Fearful World

Posted on Updated on

truth-and-lies-shown-on-moral-compass

EARLIER IN THIS BOOK, I wrote about the practice of telling falsehoods or spreading derogatory information about other people — advising that one should never accept such information at face value because very often the people doing the bad-mouthing are doing so either because of their own internal hang-ups or just plain old jealousy. The true victim in any calumnious situation is always truth.

Truth, for me, is the most precious commodity in the universe, so it’s hardly surprising that it should come under attack in a corrupted, relativistic world where the majority have no reverence for the genuinely sacred. When I contemplate what the world would be like without the possibility of objective truth, I see a moral desert and the cosmos would be an ugly scar from one end to the other. Yet, many today deny that there is even such a thing as truth! They say that everyone has their own truth therefore it can only ever be relative and never absolute. Truth, they say, is therefore merely what any human being happens to feel is right at any one time.

But is this true? Or, rather, can it be true, given the fact that they say that nothing can be true! Allow me to demonstrate this conundrum in the form of a dialogue. This is a dialogue which you could very easily have with most members of the human race. It is based on an actual conversation that I had and it goes like this: Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Fakebook…

Dear Fakebook,

I understand that you are stepping up your game to eliminate profiles which you deem to be propagating fake news or false information. That is surely going to be counterproductive for you because most of the “informational” memes and many of the claims on Fakebook are fake, which would mean you will have to delete many of your subscribers! 😀 However, I think you may mean that you are going to delete profiles which publish information which you would like to fool the public into believing is fake, but which really exposes the truth about what is happening in the world 😉 Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Victoria Beckham…

Dear Victoria Beckham,

I can’t help noticing the vast number of people on social media dictating to you that you should constantly smile when out in public. I found this so bizarre that I feel compelled to pen these open words of support to you.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Sword’s Fear of the Pen: The Assassination of Writers, Thinkers & Whistleblowers

Posted on Updated on

MOST PEOPLE WOULD FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE that there is a global policy of assassination being enacted today which is especially targeting honest and incorruptible writers, reporters, artists, thinkers, dissidents and whistle-blowers. It is a veritable pandemic. I wrote an article about this subject initially in 2006 and have just updated it today by 14%, entitled “The Sword’s Fear of the Pen: The Assassination of Writers, Thinkers & Whistleblowers”. It is in PDF format and contains 15,200 words on 25 A4 pages. It is preferable to read it on a laptop or desktop computer. But if you do want to read it on a mobile phone or tablet, you can use a PDF reader app such as ezPDF Reader. Please read the entire article with its proofs and educate yourself. This world is run by an evil power elite which will stop at nothing to achieve its ends — though they will not finally succeed, as I show in the article.

“LOOK AT THAT SCENE! IT COULD BE FROM A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE OR DISNEY!”, said a TV commentator as the newly-weds in an open horse-drawn carriage swept down the “Long Walk” between St. George’s Chapel and Windsor Castle. Indeed it could. For there are many connecting points between Hollywood, Disney and the British Monarchy — the most notable of which is the mesmerising of the masses with celebrity. One can tell a great deal about people when one knows who their heroes are. Mostpeople’s heroes in the world today, whether they admit it or not, are so-called celebrities, even scraping the barrel with “Z-List Celebs”! In this respect, the Royal Wedding was on a par with the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood — a tasteless, gawdy display of plastic people with little talent other than pretending to be someone else, who like to show off in highly expensive “designer” goods while they virtue-signal themselves as champions of social justice: The pinnacle of both irony and narcissism.
