BELOW THIS BRIEF INTRODUCTION, YOU WILL FIND A PDF LINK TO A DETAILED DOCUMENT, “Blueprint for the Coming Half-Century, 1965-2015”, which appears as an appendix in a book on which I’ve been working sporadically for some years, entitled “Reluctant Angels”. This brief introduction here explains its context, before you read it, so you will better understand it. This book is set during the countdown years of the present aeon, on the cusp of the new aeon, and it focuses on the ingathering and work of strategic counterculture groups (cells of the genuine ekklesia, about which more below) around the world who refer to themselves as “Reluctant Angels” (for reasons which will Read the rest of this entry »

Sonnet for Shoreline Girls

Shoreline

On all the broken pavements where I’ve strode
and tripped on their uneven paving stones,
the cloudbursts which ensued have overflowed
and made a chill within my damp old bones. Read the rest of this entry »

Living-Room Video #35: “The Wallflower Song”

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #35: “The Wallflower Song”. Here’s a song I’ve just completed. Only rehearsed it twice, so it’s rough! 🙂 It sums up what it’s like trying to be real in a predominantly fake world.

INTRODUCTION: The Modern Urge to Shoot the Messenger

When one writes in the manner in which I do, often on controversial subjects or ones which are designed to stretch the mind, there will always be some people who get bent out of shape or offended, or even outraged. So be it. One of the signs of emotional maturity, and especially of spiritual maturity (which should involve the overcoming of ego issues), is being able to read or hear something with which one doesn’t agree without having apoplexy or being filled with the urge to shoot down the messenger! As a sign of the immaturity which is seemingly inherent in cyberspace is the lurking bunch of people who are always waiting to shoot you down in flames for the least little contradiction of the ways they want to control you and your manner of thinking.
