The Solstice Project

‘INNER SUN’

A sunny disposition radiates from deep inside one’s heart

Like a beautiful beaming ball of fire

Whose warmth can melt away a frown with a single smile

Impossible to take anything as personal

When one comes from an elevated position, place of unconditional love

Non-attached acceptance for all

Just like the Sun always shines, way-up high above the clouds

Heart-centered love is the rainbow’s kiss in the sky

That transforms the mundane, the monochrome-grey

Into colours that dance with laughter and joy

For ones inner-core is made from the same stuff as the Sun

We are the ‘Star-Dust Children’

Honnouring our Mother Earth, and Father Sun, daily

Shining in the gratitude of love made visible

For One Sun, One Earth, one perfect solar-system

Not forgetting the gift of life, being alive and human

One’s spiritual sunshine always begins from within

And emanates without, united in selfless compassion

For everything and everyone, as a pure self-reflection

Of One heart, One pulse, One Love, One nation

A sneak preview of a project I am working on, more coming soon…

You want to be free

But there’s no way of knowing

In which direction

To keep on going

How to avoid

The Judas hawk eye

Heat seek and UV crystal ball scry

Search out the innocent and the paranoid

Tracking victim prey

Wrong place right time

For privacy parade invade

Telephoto panoramic satelite GPS/ IP

Digitally enhanced virtual spies

Who know your every move

Even before you decide

An ever expanding automated army

Of brothers in the sky

Strategically mounted

Perfectly positioned

To purposefully pry

Like flies

Pocket push button vigil

Giant fishbowl, inner third eye

Stakeout surveillance

Candy camera smile

Life Imitating Art

‘Earth Rise’. Taken by Apollo 8 crewmember Bill Anders on December 24, 1968.

In general the media, commercial advertising and Hollywood

Is all about ego-manipulation

Spoon-fed to each new generation

So is all they know

And becomes what everyone knows

Weaned upon TV, celluloid and photographic illusions

Unreal fabrications of the real world

Where life imitating art and the mass-media image

Reaches global distribution

Via commerce and technology

Conditioning the masses

On a daily basis

Every hour, on the hour, half past the hour

On paper, radio waves, internet and television

Until the surreal rapidly becomes

The real

Becomes the accepted ‘norm’

Disguised as consumerism

Filtering through misguided projections

Integrating carbon copy imitations

Of someone else’s ideas

And persuasive money-scamming visions

Thus the entertainment’s industry and advertising

Via its original creative intent

Teaches us subconsciously

How to be devious and manipulative

For our own ends

And is awesomely powerful

Especially when not asserted responsibly

For when irresponsibly let loose

Upon subconscious minds everywhere

Imprinting subliminal messages

Undermines the fabric of community and connectedness

Instead endorses stereotypical negative role-models

Of murder, theft, deceit, rape, alcoholism

Drug addiction, violence, power abuse, etc

Makes for interesting viewing

And so-called entertainment

Interspersed with repeated ad-breaks

Subliminal conditioning, over and over again

Becomes so familiar, like second-nature

Persuasive illusions embraced

Psychological delusions unchallenged

Yet more distractions from truly knowing and understanding

One’s inner-Self, one’s true self

And therefore from truly knowing and understanding

Another human being

The environment that we live in

And the Earth

This Planet we live upon
