Forts

Standard

Sometimes I’m just inclined to pick up the WordPress app and start tapping out whatever has managed to seep out of the depths and to the forefront of my mind.

Often the most darkest and ravenous thoughts are pushed to the back, but after a while they always surface. And when they begin to trickle through the cracks, pen needs to go to paper, finger tip to touch pad or keyboard.

And then they pour, in a splurge of nonsensical, unrelenting suffering, only understood by my own wired mind, perhaps appreciated by others as poetic, perhaps not. But I’m sure all can relate in some way or another.

Vent, rant, express, bring out all the emotions. And never stop.

A dance with insanity

Standard

Out of mind
Out of time
An outline
Of broken home

Confined deep within
Pushing hard without
Divine circuitry
Want to disembody

Don’t want to part
There’s much more
To be done
Upon these planes

Pump pump-
Pump-pump
Neurons throb
Divine expression

Acceptance is key
Even detachment isn’t real
But real like what?
Define reality

Close your eyes
And for a moment
Experience absolute
And total peace

Love is the most intense energy in the universe. It can throw us back and forth, hurling us in its hurricanous vortex, beating us side to side. And then it can take us in an opposing gentle touch, soothing us outwards, cradling us as we float peacefully in its enthralling midst.

Love can burn and it can soothe. But we can’t choose who we love. And that is never anybody’s fault, in any instance, no matter what circumstances that feeling may have grew of.

Though we can make decisions that direct us in the more likely direction of love, in the form we most desire. We can make moral choices, about the paths we take. Finding love in the most truest and faithful means is a love that cannot be compared. A love so honest, and real.

Waiting for love and looking for love are essentially one and the same, the only difference being that true love will find us when we stop looking for it.

I hold a lot of love right now. Some of which may be being returned to me, in different ways to what I might have imagined. Though I do believe it is of equal measure.

Love is extremely powerful, I suppose the most powerful energy in the universe. And I LOVE it.

I also still hold a lot of love for this pancake. See how the chocolate melts in the middle?

image

Raspberry, blueberry, golden syrup (naughty- I was on holiday) and melted chocolate.

Just fold and roll. Cut in half and voila.

Wanna see it again? There you go. Man, I could eat that right now.

Peace out lovers.

A Little Wednesday Hope

Standard

It’s one of those times again- for the past week or two I’ve felt my mood dropping as I let myself succumb to the negative vibes around me.

Last week I cried at two Facebook posts I saw- one of a puppy who’d had his leg chopped off and been dumped by a river, and another of a bunch of drowned regugee children washed up on European shores.

If we’re to overcome the darkness in the world, we need to stop letting ourselves be consumed by it. My experience tells me if I cut out the negative places like Facebook and newspapers, I feel so much more at peace.

But it’s easier said than done. As much as I hate seeing such heartbreaking atrocities, something inside me says I need to consume them, in order to retain the fire inside me which it ignites. The fire to INFORM one and all about the way our world works and can be changed for the better.

There’d be less amputated, abused dogs if we all learned (or nurtured) compassion. And less (or no) dead children washing up on our beaches, if governments didn’t bomb the shit out of other countries, or supply them with weapons with which to blow each other up.

I understand everything in life is about balance. But I’m really struggling to find an equal par between withdrawing myself from the horror, and spreading knowledge and light to encourage a change in the world.

All I can do is keep on fighting (I’m a natural keyboard warrior), because that’s what I incarnated on Earth at this time to do. I remain faithful that somebody will be influenced by my words.. of love, hope, peace, unity and oneness. Just by reading this you feel me just a little, so I guess I’m already on the way in my mission. And I hope that itself helps you achieve yours 🙂

Why Did the Hens Cross the Mountain? Cos they were Brayve as cluck.

Standard

Last weekend I stayed in Bray, Ireland for my friend’s ‘Hen Do’- three days of mad ‘girly’ partying stirred up with peaceful beach strolls and lung – busting island hikes.

All in all it was a wonderful weekend, made perfect by a combination of fantastic people, clean air and stunning views.

image

Such deep, lucious, earthy colours, filling blankets of forest with dewy greens and the like, that invites you in with deep breath, like one giant, leafy hug. So refreshing and satisfying. Therapeutic for both the mind and body, and nutritious for the soul.

image

Post – spiritual awakening, the end of each new trip I make now leaves me with a new sense of growth and wisdom. Like I’ve discovered another part of myself, within the new pastures I’ve tread. Even if I just go camping for a night- I feel renewed, of sorts.

image

I’m so grateful for the experience in Bray. And the moment I emerged over the top of that mountain(esque hill), and it felt as if I’d risen over the horizon and sea itself… well, it was breathtaking, to say the least. More than exhilarating… it was nothing short of being on top of the world.

image

If touring the Earth (or considering it), I’d highly recommend visiting the Irish coast when in Europe. It’s a beautiful country and one I’ll certainly never forget.

(Healthy) Raspberry and Chocolate Brownie Smoothie

Standard

image

Lately I’ve gone nuts for avacado- or rather, been whipping up a lot of avacado and peanut butter based smoothies.

Here I’ve mixed it up a bit- adding a chocolate and fruit twist. Throwing in some raw cacao powder and fresh raspberries at the end really adds an exciting twist to an already healthy (now might I add delicious) concoction.

To make 750ml, just throw in:

1-2 avacados
2-3 bananas
1 1/2 tbspn100% peanut butter
3 handfuls spinach
1 1/2 tbspn raw honey
Coconut water (or regular water)
4 tspn raw Cacao powder
Small handful raspberries

image

You know the drill- whiz it all up in a blender, serve and enjoy. Pop leftovers in fridge covered for 2-3 days.

A Hippy’s Day in Whitby

Standard

I recently visited ‘the UK’s Goth Central’, the quaint little town of Whitby. Coaching through the Yorkshire Moors and its lashings of purple and red heather fields, I got excited. Beautiful rolling hills and endless paths and trees. Not knowing what to expect, the only reference I had to Whitby in my head was from Robert Swindells’s eerie book Room 13, which I’d read over and over as a kid. And I must say, when we arrived, I decided immediately it was a delightful place.

The docks and beach merge peacefully, the scent of fresh fish and chips washing on to the seafront, mixing with the salty sea like an invisible enticement.

Mindful of the giant seagulls (if they were seagulls) that might dive in at any minute, I savoured my scampi for as long as possible, before revitalising with a long awaited grounding.

Burying your bare feet in the sand and letting the sea wash around you really is one of the best grounding practices I’ve felt. Then I got excited over a couple of tiny coves (“I’m inside Earth!”) and snuck a doobie in near some rocks. With another giant bird lingering nearby… so big I was shocked when it turned out to be a baby version.

Walked up the 199 Steps to Whitby Abbey, and watched a 3-man (1 woman, 2 men) outdoor performance of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It actually turned in to a lot of laughter and improv from the cast, as one guy in particular (who was absolutely brilliant) couldn’t help but keep drawing attention to a repeatedly naughty kid in the audience, through his dialogue in the play. It was actually hilarious, the guy had me in stitches. Though I’m not sure I’d have enjoyed it half as much had it not been for their unexpected hilarity. None the less, I could feel the historic energy surrounding the place, and it was a great experience.

The ride back even blessed us with a rainbow and a beautiful sunset. Real heavenly. And I was settled by the thought that I was unsurprised, alas naturally grateful, that the day ended in such a beautiful way. It had manifested perfectly and I accepted it.

Oh, and then there was this giant full moon which I couldn’t capture on my phone through the coach window. Alas! It was a perfect moment.

All in all a great town, spotted a campsite just down the road too. I’d definitely go again- Halloween would be great- as there were a few more areas I’d like to see. And the vibe would be perfect on October 31…

Thank you all for reading, and I bid you all goodnight! I shall retire to my coffin now.
