Camaradas

Cat Miller and Rafael Morales will collaborate on a pamphlet of poems featuring translations in different languages. The pamphlet will feature a poem written by Cat Miller, entitled: ‘Holiness of the Heart’ which was inspired by a quote by John Keats, who famously stated: ‘I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart’s affections and the truth of Imagination’, in a letter to his best friend Bailey.

Holiness of the Heart was originally written in 2009 after seeing the film ‘Bright Star’ (2009), directed by Jane Campion. The poem was translated into French in 2013, further translated into Spanish in 2015 and more recently translated into Italian in December 2018 and January 2019. Leonardo Axuni will also translate the poem into P’urhépecha, an indigenous dialect from Michoacan, Mexico.

Language is pivotal in the areas of human rights protection, good governance, peace building, reconciliation, and sustainable development. 2019 is celebrated by UNESCO as the International Year of Indigenous Language:

‘It is through language that we communicate with the world, define our identity, express our history and culture, learn, defend our human rights and participate in all aspects of society, to name but a few.

Through language, people preserve their community’s history, customs and traditions, memory, unique modes of thinking, meaning and expression. They also use it to construct their future.’

The pamphlet will be accompanied by an an A1 Concrete Poetry Diptych, designed and directed by Cat Miller inspired by one of her all time favourite quotes by Luciano De Crescenzo: “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another”. The piece will feature a pair of Angel Wings made from printed newsprint paper feathers, featuring the Holiness of the Heart poem in black and white for the English translation on one wing, and in red and white for the Spanish translation on the other wing; symbolising the UK – Mexican coming together for the Camaradas collaboration. View the piece insitu HERE:

This publication will be launched and presented at three special events in the UK from March onwards, celebrating 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Language by UNESCO.

•  ‘Camaradas Art Competition UK – Mexico’ in London organized by the Mexican Embassy in the UK,

• ‘Bookmarks’ in Edinburgh organized by Edinburgh College of Art,

• ‘BABE’ in Bristol organized by University of the West of England.

Source Energy and Expansion

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 and enjoying the process of manifesting the realities most desired, through the correct use of ones heart-supported mind

For 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, what one energetically extends, or withholds, unto ones own self one also magnetises or repels

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 ones true role as co-creator / curator, extending authentic consideration and empathy

Not just for oneself, or for one another, but for the entire Natural World

As a true reflection of ones inner-integrity as a holographic fragment of the All-There-Is

And the All-There-Is, is LOVE. The purest form of Energy with which one can align, the energetic signature of Source-Energy, Divine

Love without attachment to conditions! Is achieved by raising ones 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 every single one of us already

Vibrational alignment allows for a serendipitous synchronicitous energetic-flow, to magnetise ones hearts desires without effort, manipulation or control

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 as a direct Extension-of-Source-Energy and therefore everyone and everything that’s 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 ones heart and mind, one often winds up repeating the same old patterns, time after time

Patterns of 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.

Heart-Supported Mind

socialintegration

Twilight is the inky blue-black, steely-cool lens of the logical mind

The rational left-hemisphere that’s always asking: Who? What? Where? When? And Why?

Generally, over-focusing 24-7 upon all the little things one should have said, or could have done

Inner-narratives on constant rewind, sometimes for years, decades or even lifetimes

Retrospective key frames in ones timeline robbed of fun

Completely oblivious or unaware, that one was born with a Right-Hemisphere

Offering an additional lens of self-compassion, via heart-supported mind

Like a prism of decision-making processes that are mutually beneficent and kind

Via a hemispherical union, of left and right, both online at the same time

Co-operating as a ‘Whole Mind’

Balancing the polarity of individuation via an authentic heart connection:

With each other, the natural world, the cosmos and ‘The All There Is’

As a direct extension of Source-Energy, each of us, a little piece of Primordial-Qi

A metaphysical integration, providing meaning, purpose and Inner-Peace

Awakening ones third-eye, that can scry a previously unknown spectrum

Discover a parallel dimension

Refracting the piercing white light of inner-sight

The other side of the Rainbow crescent moon…

Listening in delight to a blackbird’s deep-in-conversational song perched atop a chimney pot with intermittent long distance replies sung from a neighbouring street at least a block away with whistling warbles and chirpy cheeps, for me the sweetest tweets of my day

My message of Love for Two Thousand 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

September in the Park

 

I place two shiny new conkers in your hands

Commenting on how many leaves are gathering now under the trees, fallen to the ground

We count the grazing geese upon the green, (there’s more than fifty!)

And remark upon a fearless squirrel darting across our path with boundless energy

I let down our ponytails so we can feel the Autumn breeze in our hair

With the sound of the fountain spray upon the lake in the air

We stop to say ‘Hello‘ to a majestic white swan upon the pond who holds its neck so proudly

And over the hump back bridge we say ‘Hi’ to a crow changing branches in a tree

Whose slick black feathers shine iridescently

Then we see two little girls chasing each other around a playground

They laugh and shout: ‘you can’t catch me, you can’t catch me…’

On the way back we wave at our reflections in the window and pause briefly

Before I comb and braid your hair into a plait so very neatly

Elixir of Love

My fears are not that I may cease to be

Rooted, steadfast, embodied in a world of physicality

And without fears too, for the deserted drying

Of heartfelt words, or inspiration

Forever drawn to all my time spent, in dedication

For no greater pleasure do I feel, may’st I apply

Whilst chained, imprisoned, in this dimension

My only freedom, flight of soul, needs must express

Such a deep felt love, for all humanity

A curious quest, I cannot explain

Impression’d on high from an invisible plane

So sublime, that poetic craft

Is not required; for metre, or to rhyme

Unless such craft imply, inject, ripened hearts

With the jewel of ‘inner meaning’

Inner truth infused with love

All pervading and genuine

Connecting precious principals beyond mere words

Which seek to make whole thus human kind

In complete align

So that intelligent insights into our complex universe

May penetrate not only the heart, but also the skin and the mind

Whereupon tinsel-gilded illusions

May fall away into nothingness

Instead replaced by a delicacy and a gentleness

A refinement of the senses

Through an indiscriminate understanding

That the elixir of love

Is wisdom plus integrity

And connects us all

To every single living being, or entity.
