Kaleidoscope Memories

Featured

Updated: 25/02/2020

One cannot help but bear-witness to pandemic storm-clouds-of-contagion, earthquake, volcano, fire, flood and landslide

Ubiquitously sweeping, shaking, erupting, raging, surging, far-and-wide

While many of the world’s leaders profess ‘business-as-usual’ with heads buried-deep in dunes-of-denial

And so, in the face of multiple-global-crises, one is forced to shop elsewhere for spiritual and emotional gnoses

Further afield than the aisles of neon-lit supermarket-dreams and dot-com same-day-deliveries

Further afield than high-brow department-store life-style fantasies

Laid out like scenes from the silver-screen in elaborate window-displays and glossy magazines

Further than the online prime-time trailer, box-set, binge-watch seduction

Plethora’s-of-perfectly-packaged-illusions to provide temporary-alleviation

From the overwhelming threat of global-annihilation

From sexist-racist, elitist-ageist denigration

Or from rust-riddled-regrets on constant-rotation

Mourning the ghosts of narrowly-missed, sugar-coated ships-of-desire that sailed long-ago

Or impossible-to-forget childhood-traumas, bereavements, divorces, augmenting serial-self-love-deficit-disorders

Inescapable neuroses, seared into one’s psyche, branded like slaves-to-key-frame-memories

Leaving a trail-of-distorted, aborted-destinies behind in their wake

Yet another empty-void, full-of-emotional gaping-holes to fill as the planet is systematically plundered and destroyed

By the addictive machine-of-consumerism, where ecological-sustainability and wellbeing is wilfully-sacrificed

With nothing left, except the bitter-aftertaste of a forfeit-future…

This is how we welcome 130-million new-born ‘kidults’ into the world every-year, weaned upon html and social-media

Whose childhood-innocence and genetic-lineages were surgically-removed at birth

Stolen by neo-narcissists ‘neath smog-filled skies, where bright-futures turned grey

Dumbed-down by smart-technology and antidepressants

And yet, in-spite-of-all-this, some intrinsic built-in desire to seek-out and search for truth-and-authenticity, persists

Sends out its call like a beacon, calling upon every human-soul to awaken, to activate one’s innate inner-knowing, like a homing-device

Beckons to journey far-beyond the comfort and safety of objects, or co-dependent relationships

To look past the emotional barbed-wire snags-and-grazes of parental/ professional/ romantic/ societal lies and betrayal

Or the nettle’s-sting of missed-opportunity

In lieu of moving-forwards, towards new desires-satisfied, and revised goals-fulfilled, collectively

For nothing stays-the-same and ‘change’ is always the one, true, ever-quickening-constant

Henceforth, it is in the ‘unspoken-moments’ where humanity happens

Where one quietly pieces-together water-colour-poems, sifted and fathomed from kaleidoscope-memories

Dreaming in silent smoky-swirls and mirror-gleam sunbeams

Peeling off rose-candy-coloured gels from the lids of one’s eyes

Like fleshy onion-skin layers of reflective-introspection

As one wakes from the lucid-dream-state with the revelatory-understanding

That in a vibrational-universe-of-Energy, every thought and feeling is eternal, and therefore accountable

As non-physical energy can never die, nor expire, it can only change form

Transformed by an awareness of one’s perennial-vibrational-offering

Atonement through candour and a willingness to upgrade one’s most-frequent-point-of-focus

As an integral requisite of self-care, a daily-practice

By virtue of LOVE, whether for self, others, or Source

Is still the purest-form-of-energy in the Multiverse.

  • Interestingly, the date this piece started to flow through  — February 2, 2020, or 02/02/2020 — is what’s known as a palindrome day, meaning it reads the same forwards as it does backward.
  • The eight-digit date is especially rare because it works in the UK where dates are written as day-month-year, and in America, where dates are written as month-day-year. And also for nations like China, where the year comes first, 2020/02/02 also works.
  • The second of February also happens to be the 33rd day of the year with 333 days remaining. This is the only time the special sequence will occur this century, reports the Washington Post.
  • The last time such a palindrome occurred was 909 years ago on 11/11/1111. It won’t happen again for another 101 years, when the calendar turns to 12/12/2121. The next global palindrome will be 12/02/2021, which will be that last for another 1,009 years.

Earth’s Prayer

The Garden of Eden - unknown artist

Our Mother/Father Planet, who art our heavenly garden

Sacred hallowed-ground be thy name

Thy ‘Kingdom of Eden’ become

Thy ‘Divine Will‘ be done

On Earth, as this also is ‘Heaven’

Whom giveth this day, and everyday, our daily bread

And whom forgiveth our trespasses, unconditionally

So that we may learn to forgive those, who trespass against us

And lead ourselves not into temptation

But deliver ourselves from our own greedy, narcissistic, addictive, insecure egos

For thine is the Kingdom of ‘One Love’

The power and the glory of one-world united in Gratitude

Forever and ever, Amen.

Earth Not Mars

Earth not Mars

I’m just another victim

Of the moral decay

A modern-day symptom

Of the down-fall, demise, delay

Of harmony, peace and integration

An epidemic of antisocial-behaviour and narcissism

Proof of a lack of happiness, inner-peace, and meaning

Too many men-in-suits behaving badly everyday

Adolescent boys thinking they’re thugs

Acting like it doesn’t matter

With which, whatever they can get away

A lack of the ‘Gentlemen’ prevalent in society today

A world interacting without sincerity, integrity, respect

On a train, in the street, at work, at home or in the family unit

The needs of Women and Children still largely unrepresented and globally overlooked

A general disregard for what they want and how they feel

Push, pull, manipulation

Of the community, ego and control

For short term profit and gain perpetuation

A modern-day symptom

Of the demise of every country or nation

That aspires to emulate the rise and rise of the corporation

Capitalist materialist homogenisation

More powerful now than any government, monarchy, community, individual or religion

Instant short-term knee-jerk gratification

The insatiable unconscious consumer-ego

Must, have, want, need

Right now, yesterday

Highly contagious

Spreading like a wildfire-virus

Infecting the globe with mediochre consumerism

First, second, third-world, without exception

Man destroying his only true source of survival

Through commerce

Rain forests cleared for palm oil, eucalyptus, soy and grazing cattle

To be slaughtered to provide beef for burger-bars in the high street

Or for paper, lining the shelves with glossy magazines in high-street newsagents

Or for timber, for chairs and tables sold in MFI and IKEA hyper-stores

So what happens when the last tree is cut?

How can we breathe without trees?

How can we have water and healthy soil?

How can we reconnect with what is real?

With the importance of the survival of Nature

‘The Natural Habitat’ and ‘The Eco System’?

_____________________

LOVE, affection and relatedness between people

Is the only central grounding-point

The unification of spirit and soul with all creation

In order to be able to continue

To see through ‘The commercial Illusion’

To resist being distracted, seduced, deceived

And with wave upon wave of new generations

Who have become casualties

Of the western world

Of free trade

Of fragmented and broken family homes

Fleeing war-torn countries, natural disasters

Crushed cultures, lost-lineages, races, religions

We have a nation of confused, displaced identities

Individuals who feel like they don’t belong

Who don’t fit in

So money has become the one common language

The £ the $ the ¥ and the €

People flock to the cities now to talk the new ‘Esperanto’!

And cities support its lowest common denomination

Profit promoted via alcohol, tobacco, sex, cars, drug-dealing

Clubs, guns, gambling, dishonesty and stealing

The exploitation of children, animals, the forests, the land, the rivers the oceans, the air and the ozone

Money without integrity

Money without a soul

The biggest illusion of survival is:

That war generates money

And crisis is good for business

As long as there is unrest

There is money

From people’s need and misfortune

Money to promote political titillation

Global media communication

Propaganda, religious doctrine, hype

Tripping down the one-way spiral

Watching the hearts of men turn evil

Sealing the ill fate

Of another entire civilisation’s demise and destruction

And, in the eve of the consumerist throw-away society

There’ll be nothing left behind

Nothing to show that we ever existed

No Pyramids

No Stonehenge

No Pantheon

Maybe then the planet will get the rest She deserves

If she isn’t left barren

And who’s to say that wasn’t already the fate

Of our adjacent planet ‘Mars’ before us?

Maybe ‘We’ are the real Martians

Who never learned

The first time..?

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System. Named after the Roman god of war, it has the appearance of having been through the wars with its battle scarred and scorched appearance and it is often described as the “Red Planet”, due to the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance.

Mars is a good example of what Earth will look like when we have cut down all the forests and the soil can no longer hold water
