For Goodness Sake

Dal Lake, Kashmir-2 Painting by Suhail Naqshbandi

Sometimes when I awake, there is an almighty mountain and a lake

Standing between my faith and my dreams, for goodness sake

But no matter how impossible ‘the way’, may at first seem

know that it can’t stop the growth or expansion within, that enables me to create

Creativity is the energy that makes everything feel so deeply, wonderfully and deliciously real

***

And even though sometimes when I awake

A mighty river may appear, slap-bang-in-the-middle

Gushing between my faith and my dreams

Despite all that I have seen, it doesn’t stop me from staying true to my ideals

It doesn’t stop the inexplicable sense of ease and flow, or the zeal

And so, I give thanks that the Earth still turns and the Sun still shines

The Birds still sing and I feel fine, with all of life’s appeal

***

And even though when I awake, it might take, a moment or so, to align

I know, that a joyous attitude is simply just another ‘state-of-mind’

A state of being that I can choose, at any given point in time

Sublimely independent from anything observably external

Because ultimately, we are all creators of our own realities

Each of us, from a source of energy that is always pure and eternal

All one has to do, is allow the reality most desired, unto oneself reveal

For attached to every thought and feeling is a physical material sequel

Therefore it’s helpful to orientate one’s most-frequent ‘point-of-focus’ in the vicinity of all things desirous and pleasurable

Lest one unwittingly creates unwanted realities, going around and around in circles…

***

Energy, Expansion and Eternity

reach-for-dreams

Scientifically, it follows that if energy ‘cannot be destroyed’ and can only ‘change form’,  then death must be an illusion

Because no-one can ever stop being: a-direct-extension-of-Source-Energy

So technically, nobody actually goes anywhere, because as a vibrational-being-of-energy, one can only keep transitioning, between ‘non-physical and physical’ states-of-being

It’s a never-ending-journey of growth and expansion

On the path of becoming: a-master-of-alignment-with-Source-Energy, where the material-physical, is conjured from the metaphysical-spiritual

Learning to become a ‘Conscious-Creator’, enjoying the process of manifesting the realities most desired, through the correct use of one’s heart-supported mind

For behold, we are all made from the same stuff as Source-Energy, the energy that creates Worlds

Made in God-Source-Energy’s own likeness, nothing new there, this we’ve always been told

But what ‘own-likeness’ actually means, is that we are all created from the one-and-the-same immortal-soul

Therefore, whatever one energetically extends, or withholds

Unto one’s own-self, one also carbon-copy magnetises, or repels

For all energy is eternal

And so this is why it is absolutely key, to embrace the concept of self-love and self-care, with genuine sincerity

As an essential way of better-understanding one’s true role

As co-creator / curator, by extending authentic consideration and empathy

To oneself, each other and the entire Natural World

As a true reflection of ones inner-integrity

And as a holographic fragment of the ‘All-There-Is’, for the ‘All-There-Is’, is LOVE

Of which Love is the purest form of Energy, with which one can align

The energetic signature of God-Source-Energy, Divine

Love without attachment to conditions, is achieved by raising one’s energetic vibrational offering, in-line

With the vibrational frequency of Source-Energy’s sweet sublime

To love and accept oneself unconditionally, as much as Source-Energy loves you, and every single living being, already!

Vibrational-alignment’ allows for a serendipitous, synchronicitous, energetic-flow, that naturally magnetises all of one’s hearts desires, without effort, manipulation or control

By letting-go of resistance, and instead surrendering to faith, trust and confidence

No-one can ever escape this natural Dharmic, Khamic law-of-energy flow

As this cyclic source of Primordial Qi, is actually ones ‘primary identity’, don’t you know?

For one can only be here now, as a direct Extension-of-Source-Energy, and so therefore, everyone and everything else that is here too, is also a direct-extension of YOU!

Because there is no ‘out there’, there is only ‘within

The inner-extension of Source-Energy, that connects us all as ONE!

This is what we share, with ALL other manifested-extensions-of-Source-Energy, out there

Who are all as equally deserving; of love, money, success and affection

However, until one looks deep within the inner-recesses of one’s heart and mind, one often winds up repeating, the same old patterns, time after time

Patterns of insecurity, fear, doubt, lack and unworthiness. Or greed, power, control and manipulation, all of which are indications of: a separation from Source-Energy’s loving vibration

And so, here we all are suffering from human-amnesia, re-learning the same basic lessons of self-worth, social inclusion and cooperation, on the never-ending journey of growth and expansion

Continually remembering and forgeting, aligning and disconnecting, over and over, again and again, forever and ever, and into infinity, Amen.

My message of Love for Two-Thousand-and-Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen, and Twenty-something….

Is that humans really have to fast-forward and evolve

To get this ‘Self-Love’ thing moving

In order to save the planet and the future of all man/woman/animal kind

As our housekeeping skills are falling way behind

Coz really there is no ‘out there‘, there is only ‘within

And this is the real reason

For why there’s actually NO SUCH THING as separation, (it’s an illusion!)

For we are all made from the same stardust, atoms and carbon molecules

And therefore what one does to the planet, one also does unto ones ‘own self’, you fools

For if you spit, piss, pollute, throw rubbish on, destroy, over develop, or exploit the earth and Her animals

One mindlessly pollutes, destroys and exploits ones own self…

Because we are all in this together

As there is no place else in outer-space to go

And the same rule applies to other people

With both those whom one does, or doesn’t know

For what one does unto another, (either publicly or secretly)

One does unto ones OWN brother/ sister, father/ mother, son/ daughter, human family

It’s an interpersonal Dharmic, karmic, cosmic symmetry

Therefore Self-Love is absolutely key!

So as not to waste precious time taking things personally

But really focus on getting to grips with and better understand

How the concept of survival and self-love go hand in hand

For without it, there is no sustainable reality, no world peace, no safety, sanctuary, or Homeland

While with every new second, this world’s multi-billion procreative population ever-expands

For without self-love there is only ignorance and immaturity

Fear, deception and insecurity

A cognitive inability to move past competition, greed and jealousy

Which lets face it, is kind of creepy

Plus time is speeding up as the Universe also expands in accordance with Einstein’s theory of relativity

So we have no choice now but to ‘open’

To one’s divine human potential

To love, accept, forgive, live and let live, fully

For we are each of us Angels, with only one wing

And the only way one can learn to fly, or even just get by

Is literally by embracing

Each and every one another as one would like to be embraced oneself

A shared ‘Response Ability’ to awaken

To an awareness of the presence of ‘Love’

For although Love is the opposite of fear

What is ‘all-encompassing’ – can have no opposite!

I shall attempt to make this concept more clear

It’s an immense source of divine unconditional Love as an interconnected composite

For oneself, each other, the disabled, the young, the elderly and the LGBT community

Irrespective of spiritual path, faith, or origin of country

It’s available for both rich and poor, black and brown, yellow, pink and white alike

Whether male or female, child or adult

Including the animal, mineral and vegetable kingdoms; and the entire natural environment

For all life forms are from the same Source of Divine Love, its just the outer envelope that’s different

And so this amazing, beautiful, miraculous Planet we live upon

Deserves our very best

So let us share now in the natural perfection

And lay ignorance to rest

Lets refocus our attention

By tapping into a divine infinite intelligence

Love and gratitude is the enlightened way

Lets us make a difference, lets start today

‘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

Nip Tuck

So many people clambering through the ruins of human habit

Trekking through a kaleidoscopic landscape

Of synthetic addictions and distractions

Like colourful stained glass patterns, too pretty or difficult to break

A growing army of Achilles heels ingrained with routine self-denigration, denial, or deceit

Carved into the hard-drive of ones mind’s-eye and set like concrete

Formatted from an early age and normalised

Via complex combinations of emotional gratification, and/or pain

That will either drive an individual into an early grave

Or leave one cluelessly insane

Like a rat on a wheel in perpetual pursuit of personal gain

Continuously re-running old beliefs on a loop like obsolete operating systems

Making the same old mistakes as previous generations

And countless lost civilisations

Unless of course one learns to fly

What better place for ones soul to soar free than the wide open sky?

Where ones fingers become feathers and ones arms become wings

Free to attend to other, less mundane or trivial things

Leaving behind a plethora of human trappings

That seduce and fool

That distract oneself from ones spiritual survival

With manufactured airs and superficial graces

Lying through ones teeth to save ones nip-tucked faces

fly

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.

Artist’s Statement / Vision

I am an artist and a poet. My practice is about sharing personal truth, insight and revelation about the human experience inspired by life.

I attempt to do this through the written and spoken word, events and installation, multi-media, mixed media, and technology.

My objective is to extend an invitation to commit to the communication of wellbeing, self-love, inner-peace and connectivity, so that in the face of surmounting state austerity and corporate greed, where the quarterly profit margin is prioritised over and above family, community, human dignity and environmental sustainability, one can offer a healthy comparison.

This can be achieved by engaging in right-brain activities that reconnects an individual with a sense of innocence and play in order to rediscover and form new neurological pathways in the brain.

In this way, according to brain scientist: Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor; one can choose to ‘step to the right of one’s left hemisphere’ at any given moment in time, in order to run the ‘deep inner-peace circuitry’ that is characteristic of the right hemisphere of the brain.

In the words of Thích Nhất Hạnh: ‘Peace is every step’ however, in order to walk a path of ‘mindfulness’ (ie: left and right hemispheres working together) one must keep challenging one’s concepts of self-identity (left hemisphere) within the context of the larger scheme of things (right hemisphere), to move beyond old limiting programming and divisive stereotypical-labels such as gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, salary, postcode, elitism, etc. to redefine the boundaries of ones inherited cultural and social roles.

This constitutes a hemispherical union that initiates self-love and facilitates it’s outer expression as compassion and humility.

This is the true sense of the co-joining, dovetailing union between Yin and Yang. For Yin and Yang is not something out there, these qualities exist within ones own cranium. It is the perpetual dance of duality and polarity within the self and within each other. Love is unity. Fear is the division of unity.

In order for humanity to evolve humanity must learn to engage and apply both sides of the brain equally. Not one to the exclusion of the other, but both, to integrate the perspective of the ‘I’ and the ‘I am’ as part of the ‘Whole’, the ‘We are’, and the: we are all here now and in this together.

This is also the reason for why humanity appears not to have evolved beyond the multiplicity of the ego, and appears to be making exactly the same mistakes related to power, greed, control, self-importance, conflict and war etc., as it was thousands of years ago, because humanity’s decision making process is still dominated by the same left-brained ego-mind that operates solely from a place of self-interest and instant, short-term gratification, without engaging the vision for a long-term communal best interest that is characteristic of the right-brain.

As soon as we choose to come online to embrace and integrate the sensory nature of the right hemisphere of the brain, to support and balance our left-brain thought processes, humankind will make monumental leaps and bounds forwards, discovering and developing a plethora of new, exciting and inspirational ways to cement a deeper sense of communal responsibility, committed to finding ecologically sustainable growth solutions whilst healing old grievances easily and effortlessly.

Author and spiritual teacher, Marianne Williamson says that: “Righteousness means ‘right use’ of the mind and the only right use of the mind is love”.

And so I propose that this is how one can begin making heart-supported choices, by engaging our right hemispheres of our brains, (the sensory, feeling, center that connects the heart, tempers the ego and is committed to communicating peace) to balance and support our logical, rational, thinking left-brain, (the ego-mind that offers the incessant internal dialogue that can often border upon the tyrannical) creating an inner-outer union, rather than tension.

This union between the hemispheres is the process of becoming fully conscious, where the ‘Off’ becomes an ‘On’ and where the ‘Zero’ becomes a ‘One’. This is also how consciousness can spread like a wildfire virus, where whole countries can become united over night, just like switching on an electric light. Align Right.
