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 »
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
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).

RATHER THAN SEND A LETTER TO AN IMAGINARY SANTA, I’m sending one to the actual Creator. An infinitely better idea, methinks…
ALMOST A MILLION HORSES WERE KILLED in World War I. HORSES! Imagine! Beautiful horses. Plus, of course, “half the seed of Europe one by one” (quoting First World War poet, Wilfred Owen). Although he read the relatively tamer “Anthem for Doomed Youth”, what Michael Palin did NOT read last night in the Festival Hall (and no doubt would not dare to do so, for fear of the outrage) was Owen’s more poignant and acerbic poem which concludes: “If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues — My friend, you would not tell with such high zest to children ardent for some desperate glory the old Lie: Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori”. Those last Latin Read the rest of this entry »
There has never been a true “cessation of hostilities”.
For those three NewSpeak words can only ever be
a gassy smokescreen made to mask the secret liability
of those for whom all peace is all ways merely just
the disingenuous space that comes between 2 wars.
In every dirty hushful place where vulture salesmen
gather to be pedlars of the means of our destruction, Read the rest of this entry »
A couple of years ago, I wrote these words: “A kind of madness has overtaken the world. It is not a new sort of madness; for it has been in operation on various levels and in varying degrees for centuries, even for millennia. But it is a madness which has increased hugely in intensity during the past three decades and especially in the fifteen years since the events of September 11th, 2001 in the USA. This madness has occasionally exploded temporarily prior to those events (notably in the engineered mass public response to the death of Lady Diana Spencer or the ludicrous “ticker-tape” euphoria which greeted the elections of Tony Blair as Prime Minister in the UK and Barak Obama as President in the USA as Savio(u)rs of the world. The madness about which I am speaking is far more bizarre than what one would ordinarily call “madness”. For it is contagious, striking anyone of any social class, political wing, level of intelligence or degree of sophistication. The madness of which I am speaking is completely irrational, making people believe things which are patently and provably untrue, especially those which come through visual and written media channels and which seem to send them into a frenzy of unfettered emotionalism. It is a madness which bears witness to public gullibility and human stupidity”. Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
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.

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 »
