BREXIT: A Théâtre de l’Absurde Contrivance

Posted on Updated on

I WAS GOING TO WRITE ANOTHER ARTICLE about the théâtre de l’absurde contrivance known by its portmanteau word, “Brexit”. But, being in a playful 🤪 geeky 🤓 frame of mind today, I created an image instead. Feel free to share…

The Spear of Self-Reflection [new double-sonnet]

Self-reflection

If we, when small, have suffered crippling shocks,
which mean that in our terror we could drown,
demonic fetters bind our minds with locks
and dark satanic mills which grind us down. Read the rest of this entry »

New Year Alone (but Never Lonely)

WHEN PEOPLE SAY TO ME: “What are you doing on New Year’s Eve?” I say: “Nothing in particular. It’s just a day like any other”. Then they reply: “But aren’t you going anywhere?”. When I say: “Nope”, they say: “What? You’re going to be on your own?” (accompanied by a tearful emoji 😥). When I say “Absolutely!” they say: “Oh, that’s terrible!” To which I say: “Actually, it’s fine. In any case, the year started really at the Winter Solstice. I was on my own then too. I’m on my own every night. By choice. This is who I am: A man on his own. A monk without a habit; whose sleeves and cuffs are ragged even when they’re new. Though you may find me writing some poem about the meaning of resurrection or the spear of self-reflection”.

Then I, far from the madding crowd of phoney bonhomie, will hear the fireworks in the Read the rest of this entry »

The Parable of the Lime Tree (true story)

SITTING HERE ON MY TERRACE in the ardent sunshine, I was going to write about the alchemical effect of music on the soul as strains of a Handel Concerto Grosso drifted through the living-room entrance. But as I began to type, I noticed a heart-stopping, long-awaited sight just a metre from where I was sitting: My little citrus Lime Tree had suddenly acquired a leaf-shoot bump, as I realised on closer inspection; followed later by more similar bumps all over it, along with a number of flower-buds bursting out with Read the rest of this entry »

Another Terrorist “Known to the Authorities” and “Under Surveillance”…

Posted on Updated on

IN MY PREVIOUS ARTICLE 2 DAYS AGO, “Don’t Be Naïve”, I wrote the following words:

“At the highest, deepest levels of government (e.g. in the bunkers of the intelligence networks which really control society), there is continual knowledge and manipulation of what happens in this world. Have you not found it strange that every time there is a terrorist atrocity it is later revealed that the perpetrator of the atrocity is well-known to the “security services” and was even being ‘tailed’ by them at the time? Do you not realise yet in all your starry-eyed naivety that these atrocities are being allowed to go ahead so that you willingly give the ruling powers more control?”

And here we go again! Cherif Checkatt, the shooter at the atrocity in Strasbourg last night, in which 3 people were killed and many others injured, was not only “known to the authorities” but he has also long been tagged as “the highest level of threat to the state”. He was imprisoned in Germany up until 2017, after being convicted of robbery by a court. (Strasbourg is on the border with Germany). After serving his sentence in Germany he was deported back to his home country, France, where he was said to be “technically under surveillance, said an investigating source”. He had served previous prison sentences in France too. Even in 2011, he had been given a 2-year sentence for a knife attack on a teenager. (What kind of pathetic court imprisons someone for only 2 years, which means out in 19 months in France, for an offence like that?!?). He was well known in Islamist circles in Strasbourg and for being further radicalised in prison. French authorities have admitted that Checkatt, because of his radicalisation, had “long been tagged” by the security services as “Fiche S” — the absolute highest level of threat to the French state. On the day of his shooting spree, Checkatt had received a visit to arrest him for a robbery but he escaped them. Of course he did! I can tell you this, when the security services really want to find you, they damn well do! They don’t turn up at an address in the mere hope of doing so when you are Fiche S. They have the technology to pinpoint you even if you bury yourself in a tiny hole in the Sahara! Strange how these guys always manage to slip through the hands of the authorities and be one step ahead of them. Then, to add to the atrocity last night, “Witnesses said it took up to 45 minutes for paramedics to arrive after the shooting”. How could that be possible in the centre of a city like Strasbourg? Having lived in France for 10 years, I can tell you that it has one of the best emergency responder services in the world.

It is clear to me that this is yet another Government-permitted atrocity (a psychological operation) in order to generate the chaos and insecurity necessary to obtain permission by the population for “security services” to gain more control. It has to be either that or a level of incompetence so crazily low that it makes the Keystone Cops seem like super-professionals!  😁 I know which of those alternatives I believe.

PS: To whom it may concern: Everything I write is checkable. Don’t just accept my word for it. I’m just a voice in the wilderness. So check it out for yourself. All of it. And please don’t rant at me if you haven’t thoroughly looked into the facts (as one guy did earlier) as I will just delete the rant for it educates no one and spreads disinformation. I realise that all this is not easy to receive if you have accepted unquestioningly what your parents, relatives, spouses, community, teachers, media and politicians have told you. But this is not the time for mediocrity, ignorance and stupidity. This is the hour for discernment, insight and alertness. This is not merely a propaganda battle involving official lies, disinformation and obfuscation; for the war is really a spiritual one involving angels and demons and is being acted out on earth. Truly, this earth — even this entire cosmos — is a theatre of spiritual warfare, with the power-elite on this planet being appointees of the forces of darkness to challenge the power of the Light. Therefore, the only possible solution can be a spiritual one, as I have written about many times elsewhere. But educating oneself on these realities is the first step. One has to fall out of love with this world and even with oneself. Then the stage is set for genuine spiritual discovery. I could write a whole book about this. In fact, I already have done! 😉 You can find it at the following link, free of charge: https://narrowgate-pathwaystrait.com

INTRODUCTION

A great many people get mad these days if you start quoting the Bible. I had a woman insisting to me recently that the Bible was written in the seventeenth century by some church people appointed by the king who were creating a book with which to oppress the people! She said that even if there were any original texts they were long-since lost and that it was all just made up. Another said to me that the Bible was cobbled together by some evil church people in the fourth century who deliberately missed out the real books which should have been in there (by which they are referring to what are known as “pseudepigrapha” — books written by false teachers using the names of the apostles and disciples of Christ to give their own wayward teachings some authority).
