The realisations that a bit of mindfully living in the moment can bring....
It's magical that we taste
There's magic in a touch
Magic surrounds all the things
Which we don't think of much
The splendour of our sunshine
Remarkable drops of rain
The miracle of each day
That we've awoke again
The greatness of those blades of grass
That grow beneath our feet...

Hello silence, my old friend.
It's good to embrace you
No flashing phones.
No clashing tones.
No distracting memes.
No broken dreams.
Just breathing in gratitude,
marinating the moment,
connecting to the prophet within.
Listening, learning, loving,
by the naked light you bring.

Step from the road of the known into the wild of the unknown.
My guide, the divine pulling me 3 finger widths beneath my last known uplink.
Wonders of the world exist all at once, spanning the confines of time.
I visit myself as a child and young adult.
Give hope to the past, while gaining wisdom from the future.
Crude oil refined into the supreme.
Let's suffer together.

Here I go, take a step onto the stage called life.
Finally awake for the first time. Fully present here and now. What a gift.
Hold onto your handlebars.
I take this breath like dope.
Into my blood, down into the depths of my being.
Where being is seeing.
Like a probe searching for answers.
My feet carry my swiftly as I walk.
Rooted firmly in the earth, I am strong.

Here is my Christmas message of hope, to my new extended family here at ‘WOL’
Although I am new here, I am not new to public speaking. In my past I have served churches and taken the service in many of them all across East Anglia.
I have also given talks, lectures and public demonstrations in halls, theatres, and public buildings.
During these occasions, I have often recited ‘New Dawn’, s...

Do you ever lie there at night,
With memories running through your mind
of times gone by, to come, to never be?
I heard meditation lets you slow these down,
See all of them at once or not at all,
To just be there - thoughts floating through your mind
like tiny boats sailing the wind in a breeze,
Peacefully gliding through your consciousness
Like a kite rippl...

The mental essentials
prescriptions to help us
Break the mold that is made for us ,
Dead or alive ,stories untold
Intrested in gold
The materialistic , the glamours are cold
With the evil besides us
and good surpressed in us
And fear of the unknown,
Potential untaped ,
Millions below us , the seven foot gap
Looks will be gone , but we are forever.
Embodied in pict...

A skull, abundant with nebulae
Cold waves crash upon the heart
Echoing through the veins and beyond
There she remains, inert in her behavior
Acclimated with these surges of pain
Leering at the screen before her
Acumen floating above curls that betray
A cloud of cognizance

beyond our close shadow of death
my poet mind
I need direction
Or some beads to tell
to take refuge from my life:
A candle flame
Only the candle
A journey into quietude

I grow the interest to know who thinks me,
I am still and silent at first,
The breath moves, I am given life,
I am in it, of it and with it,
The same as you, I am
I notice that my form is a vessel,
But I am not my form,
My thoughts run like programs
But I am not my thoughts
my emotions are felt deeply
But I am not my emotions
My body a sensory interpreter...

Express yourself unambiguously
Be discerning about what you accept as truth
Your actions reap more than your desires

“Mum, what’s that noise?” asked Johnny Duboise
as he sat on the comfy settee.
“Its your father”, she replied as the dishes she dried,
“say’s he’s trying to set his mind free”.
“By singing a song?” he asked with a grin
as he as he looked for the TV remote.
“He says that he’s chanting” she replied with a smirk,
“sounds to me more like he’s panting!”
“Is he gonna be ...

When I meet her in the night
I had a date with silence last night, I remember what she said
She gently cuddled up to me then kissed me on the head.
She emptied thoughts out of my mind and poured herself inside
Then mercury that had set fast, slowly, began to glide.
No thoughts to fuel emotions and no actions from what’s felt
Then from the top she trickled down and ...
