Choose Conscience

When faced with difficult choices, especially amongst bad options, conscience can always show the way. Needless to say, what the planet needs right now, more than ever, is a return to conscience. Conscience lends itself to a variety of peaceful solutions. Moral relativity does not fit well into the realm of a well developed and active conscience. Conscience intuitively knows the difference between right and wrong. What is appropriate or correct within a given context or what is not. What […]

South Africans Should Never Forget

  South Africans should never forget. It is our disunity that makes our unity. Whether we fully appreciate it or not, we still stand as a model for the world… …about how disunity can be overcome. Even if it leads to some of the same, we have also made massive strides. What we need to do is mature into this process and take pride. Politics aside. It is our duty to continue to build on this and not take our […]

The Liminal Space

.. We are in the Liminal Space A Dangerous Place   Where predators lay and tricksters play Where good people pray then look away “Though shalt not enter the fray”   Bless the lambs that are slain It is not our pain They are weak We are strong Nothing is wrong   Power is principle Principles have no power Virtue has no value Values have no virtue Ethics aren’t up to you   Left is right Rights have left Orwell […]

The Great Unforeseen

.. We cry about illusions   and we cry about reality until finally in the  epicentre of disparity we find the vast unseen – We expected a different scene, but what could it mean? –  It would seem that if not for the unseen we would not have been able to finally come to see the Unseen ..  Jean-Jacques Montagnier  © 2012.

The Circles and Spirals of Life

It could be said that our life cycles include Circles and Spirals. Circles can become Spirals and Spirals can become Circles. There are two types of Circles: The ones we need to transcend: Circles which need to become Spirals. The ones we have already transcended: Spirals which have become Circles. The latter cause us no stress. They keep us grounded and give us balance and guidance. They form our foundations. The Circles we need to convert into Spirals can keep […]

Intermission

  You have to return eventually, To see everything differently. To see what you see differently. And how you see it differently. Due to having gone away. Old points of reference Faded through absence Return to conscience And highlights the essence Of what you have transcended Compared with if you had stayed This place is not the same But its from where you came Similar, but only in name Or is it rather who you became Will what you have […]

Safer than Houses

The long term traveller makes short term investments in short to medium term experiences. During the investment period, short term loss of income may occur, but the long term profits are immeasurable  and immense. Even the shortest experiences yield high returns of knowledge and continuously pay out  dividends in the form of memories. The traveller’s assets are of a non-tangible nature, deposited safely within his mind and soul. His or her assets of experience cannot be eroded, diminished, transferred or […]

Independence of Thought

The ability to think freely could prove to be more important than a high level of intelligence. There is apparently more than one type of natural IQ, although conventionally only one type is measured. Others are emotional intelligence, social intelligence and spiritual intelligence. There may well be more. Independence of thought is not a natural ability and without it we could be limited in our perception. Unrestricted thinking can be achieved to a certain extent, but might take years to […]
