Yo..

Standard

Since beginning my yoga journey some twelve+ months ago, I’ve experienced a whole new level of Self. My inner being feels cleansed, I’m more aligned, and I have a much deeper sense of Oneness.

Every posture, from the simple yet delightful up-dog, to the muscle-tingling baby grasshopper (I’m yet to find my way to the more hardcore version; the daddy Grasshopper) takes me on a journey through the mind and body.

Becoming and being aware of one’s own physical structure, discovering the sensation of each muscle maybe for the first time, feeling the body, brings with it new self-inquiry, and a deeper understanding of what lies beyond. Whether warming up for the day, playing around after work to wind down, or just passing time, it seems there’s always something new to be had from practising yoga.

It also gives a wonderful head-start to a meditation session, placing you nicely into a relaxed and calm state, especially after a well-earned savasana. I’ve found myself in many a ‘surprise’ meditation right after yoga, where my body and mind fall right into place.

Aside from the spiritual side, there’s also the health benefits that are complimentary with a dedicated yoga regime; more energy, self-satisfaction, balanced chakras, reduced stress, increased happiness,  a strong physique. And I’m sure there are many more fellow practitioners/yogis  could claim.

I personally recommend anybody who hasn’t, to give yoga a try. Don’t let age, weight or flexibility get in the way of your will – yoga is for every body, and after discovering it, everybody is for yoga 🙂

Peace and love.

Namaste.

Hi-gha, God

Standard

Why do we look up when we address God?

Neck craned, spine poised,

Gazing up to the ceiling.. even into the sky

Is it because God is a, nay, THE ‘higher’ power?

 

[But God is within Us?]

 

Gaze into the sky again

Stare past the stars

Deep through the u-niverse

Into yourself. Look within.

 

[Pray with true intent]

[[Even in-a tent]]

 

Hands together, liberated harmony

Drawn close to our hearts

Feel the particles of love beaten

God truly never departs

 

 

 

Good morning, merry Wednesday and viva la revolution.

Standard

Good morning, all. It’s time to wake up!

Good morning to the doctors and Lawers who support outdated ideals. No more will we accept toxic pharmaceuticals or unfair judiciary. It’s time to wake up.

Good morning to the police forces the world over. You don’t need to be tied to a totalitarian book of rules any more. Fuck the system. It’s time to wake up!

Good morning to the actors starring in daily TV news reports.. you don’t need to put your fear faces on any more, we already know how dark the world can be. It’s the time now to leave the screen and join us reporting on REAL news. It’s time to wake up.

Good morning to the soldiers all over the globe, fighting for false honour. Everything you’ve been told is a lie. Drilled into your mind to convince you killing other humans is acceptable as a form of national security. We don’t need national security, we need love spread around the globe, and no need to fear one another. Terrorism is not a job, despite what your wage slip says. It’s really time to wake up.

KIDS! …you woke up to make it to school. Now wake up a little more: the public schooling system is built as a form of control and indoctrination, in order to mould you into a functional economic slave, perfect to continue contributing to a failing monetary system that ONLY benefits the wealthy, and will never offer ease of living to working (or middle) class people. Stand up. They only teach you how to remember (their) facts and pass (their) exams, in order to enter (their) world of work.. to make more money for them.. It’s time to wake up!!!

Religious ministers… you already woke up when you found God. But was it enough, or did the specifics of your religous teachings conveniently distract you from the real Love, and that we are all God? If not, please continue to spread the word that all religions are based on the same principal and that is to love yourself and one another, unconditionally. If you’re still teaching the specifics of one lone religious sect, it’s time to wake up. Religion serves to divide us, when it should bring us all closer together. Wake up and help others to do the same.

ALL OF YOU, in your office, warehouse, sales, accounting, retail ‘jobs’… YOU’RE ALL HEROES AND ALL WORTH MORE THAN THAT. You were not born to spend half of your life working a job you dislike for barely enough money to get by. There is enough money in the world.. knowledge, resources AND technology for us ALL to live comfortably. Not one of us need suffer any more.

But first we all need to be awake to the atrocities carried out everyday by a miniscule amount of elite who sit at the top, frantically catching their overflowing cash bags before they drop down to us below. An elite who make sure we live in a backward society, where THINGS ARE LOVED AND PEOPLE ARE USED. A system which serves to fuel hatred and division, suffering and darkness. We need to first realise this, then we can shake up the system. And dismantle it. Then we can rebuild on the basis of love, compassion and altruism.

World. It’s time to wake up!!!

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.

Shut yo preachin’ ass up

Standard

I feel inclined to talking about changing the world.

Earth, in its entirety, is capable of extraordinary things. We as a collective energy hold the power to ignite love and light throughout the world, and even out into (out – to? ) the universe.

May we all come together as One. Together we can change our world for the better. If you believe at all in reincarnation, you get we’re energy and upon death that energy disperses and becomes one again with that energy, and around we go again.

So if we’re coming back, over and over again, let’s just keep making it better each time? No? Well I think yes.

It’s not only essential for the universe, but a karmic loop, too. Our souls depend on it. I don’t mean to sound extreme or preachy. Excuse me if I do. It’s meant as a good thing! An exciting time. Imagine what good we can truly do.

I’ve now made a real habit of smiling at everybody I make eye contact with. Both for the good of Earth and the good of myself. You have no idea who it is you’re smiling at, but it’s very possible you could make their day.

I’d like to see us all a little more mindful of other people’s existence and feelings. From our closest, to strangers in far out countries, seemingly another world, in one way or another.

Just to spread a little light. We all need it. For our world. Our kids (remember as well they are our future, and pave the way for all that will become). For all that is.

It’s truly a blessing to be able to experience Earth. Not sure how anybody else feels, but I’m gonna continue furthering that experience with true, whole hearted goodness. Bless.

Days of Gratitude 5

Standard

So it turned out I succumbed to the demons of procrastination with my latest ‘days of gratitude’ collection.

Not unlike most projects I start, I never fully committed to the idea, but my general aim was to go with 7 days (I didn’t dare dream of completing them 7 days in a row) of one thing I’m grateful for.

So now, on the 5th ‘day’, since I neglected the subject, I’ll list not one, but  LOTS of things I’m grateful for today. I’ll force my indecisive mind to focus on as many possible and why.

So I’ll commence with

Life

The most obvious blessing, is that of Being. Not just alive on this beautiful planet, but  alive with the energy we are made of, too.

Buzzing with electricity at every moment, creating those moments with that electricity, back and forth, in an infinite track of energy.

Utilising and expelling that energy into an existence, a soul, life on a planet, life on this planet, a human (or any form of being), a cell, a molecule, an atom, a particle, a photon, a quark…. and back out as energy all over again.

I am so friggin grateful to be alive. It’s truly an honour to be blessed with this experience.

My Dad

My Papa is my ultimate hero. My rock in life. The endless support he offers me is amazing. More than amazing. He is a knight in a shining armour of lightimage

The sky And trees, so we can breathe.

The ability to transmute thoughts into energy and form, whether processing an idea to create our own reality, or putting words on to paper and writing something new.

The ability to speak, see, walk and feel. I love that I can feel other people’s energy.

The prospect of having a child. Yep, I said prospect. To bring a being into this world and raise and protect it, to mould the way to a fantastic person, who could almost definitely change the world, in one way or another. To have that BOND, that human connective sense. That to me seems like an exciting prospect.

Hoodies, tracky bottoms, gaming, Destiny 😑… the immersive world of video games is a reality within, and upon itself. Existing within the 3D Earth, viewable to us through monitors, hooked up to.. electricity.

And finally (today)

For waking up..  today in my bed, and everyday my mind to how Earth is being manipulated by the few, at the detrement of the many (and the planet herself). And love. And everything that comes with it.

Peace.

As Smooth as it Gets

😎Welcome to the land of the Fruitilicious: a healthy breakfast smoothie, that tastes like pink!

Start with some frozen raspberries, a few frozen strawberries, spinach (optional) banana, avocado.

image

Add a dash of honey, or pure maple syrup

image

And some coconut water (or filtered tap water).

image

And whir the frick out of it. I got some pretty funky colours along the way.

image

Add more water slowly to get the right consistency.

And voila. Kreamie Chilld Fruti Rassberi Miks.

The thicker consistency with frozen fruit gives it a cooler, more refreshing hit. Try it with a spoon!

Nom..aste

Days of Gratitude 4

Today I’m grateful for my health.

I have a healthy body, fully able to walk,  run and cycle my ass off whenever I wish.

I’m blessed with the ongoing ability to get to and from places all over, without the need for assistance or extra effort.

I’m free of dis-ease, able – bodied and have nothing holding me back. I’m far more fortunate than others who may not possess such health, and as such I will continue to feed my body clean, nutritous food. And treat it to daily exercise and activity.

In turn it contributes to the health of my mind. My overall wellbeing is fantastic and I couldn’t/shouldn’t ask for more. I’ll continue to work at achieving inner peace, for the good of myself and the world over.

May all beings find the strength to overcome any obstacles, mental or physical, and continue to worship their bodies and mind.

Today I’m grateful to be blessed with full health, and may you all be, too.

Love and light ✌

Days of Gratitude 3

Today was an unrivalled feeling of gratitude,  for our one and only, the irreplaceable; Mother Nature.

I’m grateful for the birds chirping outside my window at dawn (or when I decide to rise).

I’m grateful for the canal banks and all its natural glory; butterflies, dragonflies, ducks and swans, stork, trees, bushes and shrubs… nettles, regular annoying flies that stick in your hair and dive into your mouth while cycling.

Though I suppose it’s actually myself invading their space with my bicycle and speed… so I’m grateful I’m allowed into their space.

I’m grateful for the sun beaming down on to the back of my neck. And for the breeze that whips my hair back.

Mother Nature will never ever leave our side,  no matter how much we take her for granted, or abuse her. Even if she’s beaten down and stripped of life through winter (or pollution/construction/war etc), she will come back fighting. She’ll take back what was always hers, still offering our disloyal race a comfortable, nourishing home. And she always will.

Namaste 🙏
