Years end

And ready for the new year.

What are your plans for the new year?

More of the same?

The new year will not be as predicted.

Too many uncertain variables are in the air.

Change will come to us all.

To enjoy this new year decide to make a contribution.

Something outside yourself

Something for someone or something else.

Altruism is the way to peace of mind.
Make 2007 your best year yet!

Off we go again

The end of another year.
How fast it has gone.

Yet another year moves into sight.

Time is not as it was.

Everything moving faster.

Life speeding by.

Adjust to this new reality.

Focus on what you want to do next year.
Do not arrive at the end of it dissatisfied.

Did you do all you intended this year?

Bet you didnt!
Be more organised next year.
Live it to the max.

I am sorry sir our official policy is five days to repair a level three problem.

But I need my machine for business and this is the second time in one month....................

No where to go.................

And then a friend says just turn it off wait ten seconds and try again.


The machine resets itself and works.

Too many times do we find ourselves at the end of a phone trying to rectify a problem with bills, phone, computer, TV or whatever.

The answer is often simple but the effort required to obtain assistance has to be herculean to wade through the call centers and levels of competence.

This is our world.
While things work fine life is great, but once one of our marvel machines breaks down then the pain begins.

Try the reset and if that does not work then regard it as an exercise in humility and patience.

Not easy but we have no real choice unless we can delegate to someone else.
Most of us cannot do this so smile and let go.

Patience is all we can learn from these things.
Frustrating problems are inevitable in a modern interdependent world.

Friends for ever!

The same life that throws us into life to suffer or enjoy, as may be deserved, decrees that the friends and the relatives who are like unto each other must incarnate together.

Until by reason of differentiation of character they cannot under any law of attraction remain in company.

Not unless and until they become different do they separate from each other.

And who would wish to be eternally tied to the side of uncongenial relatives or acquaintances merely because there was an accident of birth!

For our aid, also, this law works well and ceaselessly.

"Those whom you help will help you in other lives".

Is the indicator of where you are on the evolutionary scale.

Consciousness is not intelligence although they often go hand in hand.

No one has been able to give satisfactory explanations about where consciousness came from or how it arose.

No point in going into a discussion of this.

So we turn to why it is important to understand.

Without consciousness you do not experience much.

With consciousness you can experience life.

Increased consciousness is also the gateway to higher levels of understanding and evolution.

A point from where everything becomes increasingly clear.

It also leads to greater peace of mind.

Grow your consciousness.

In truth it's all you have.

News like food

What news do you read?

Like food you have to learn what you like and what you don't.

Do the same with news learn what is good and what is not.

Some news sources cause indegestion and are not good for you.

Leave them alone.
With the internet we now have the chance to easily find sources that deliver reasonably balanced, even objective news.

Choose your news like food.
Or go one further and leave it alone except once in a while.
It is not necessary to consume news every day!

Mmmmm - 36

Speaking of early Christians:

It is evident that with the exception of Paul and Clement of Alexandria, who had both been initiated into the mysteries,none of the Church Fathers knew much of the truth themselves.

They were mostly uneducated, ignorant people; and if such as Augustine or Lactantius, or again the Venerable Bede and others,were so painfully ignorant until the time of Galileo of the most vital truths taught in the Pagan temples -

of the rotundity of the earth, for example, leaving the heliocentric system out of the question -

How great must have been the ignorance of the rest!

Learning and sin were synonymous with the early Christians.

Hence the accusations of dealing with the Devil lavished upon the Pagan Philosophers.

But truth must out.

Thoughts vs actions

Not well known but true.

Our thoughts can damage us more than our actions.

So when you have bad, jealous, greedy, angry, bitter or other nasty thoughts be aware.

These thoughts will often cost you more in terms of their consequences than your actions.

So stop nasty thoughts.

Keep your mental cool and let those nasty thoughts go.

Better still think only nice thoughts.

Difficult but certainly worth learning.


Because unpleasant thoughts uncontrolled become our view of life.
Negative and increasingly paranoid.

Who wants that?

Speeding by

Life is.

Just faster and faster.

Never seem to have time.

Is it just me?

No even young people today find time going by so fast.

Its the times we live in.


Be smart and reorganise your life.

If you used to do ten things a day then cut it down to five.


You increase the chances of actually doing those five things.

And maybe more importantly you can enjoy life more along the way.

Adjust to this new reality.

Make time work for you rather than have it against you.

Germans and British

Are the most stressed people in the world according to a new pole.

Mexicans are the least stressed.

And the cause of German and British stress?

Losing control.
Losing control of their lives.

Are they joking?

No one has control of their lives.

The illusion of control yes.

Many live in the illusion of having control, being in control.

Control is the reason for many to struggle to become this or that.

To grab as much money or power as they can.

Unfortunately though if you have a pain in your body this second then so much for your money, fame, fortune, comfort and illusion of control.

If this pain turns our to be cancer, heart attack or whatever your life is changed from one second to another.

So much for control as a worthwhile objective in life.

Recognise there is little any of us can really control.

We chase control because we believe that it will give us freedom.

In fact often it gives us more stress.

Let go of control it's an illusion.

It's that time of year again.

One where many spend time with their families.

A time to reknew realtionships.

To be together.

Fun or misery?

Make a decision to enjoy the time together.

If this is not possible then use the time to learn.

Learn how to grow beyond any friction or difficulties.

Be firm in your own morality.

Do not play games just be clear with yourself and others.

Make this holiday a powerful experience even if it is not so easy

Most of us present what we feel is our best image to the world

This image is our creation.

Often it is not real or based on the truth of how things really are.

So when we enter into relationships the truth must out.

Alternatively the other party goes along with the pretence.

Either way not so clever.

Often this leads to more pretence rather than change.
More problems.

Why do people do this?


Drop the games life is too short to spend living a lie.

If you do not like who you are then change.

The true meaning of life is about process.

Enjoy the becoming of who you truly want to be.

Nice smell

We all like them.

Do you notice smells?

Do you pay attention to smells?

They say a lot about us.

Also it's part of an evolving consciousness.

One notices smells more.

We smell people more, not just their perfume.

Their astral and entity smells too.

Are you conscious of smells and what they mean?

Monday, December 18, 2006

On and on

One day merging into another.

A new year is approaching.

Is it going to be the same old stuff for you?

Do you have any plans?


Are you going to start creating the life you want or are you going to let things drift along for another year?

You do have choices even if sometimes it does not seem that way.

First thing though is to be clear with yourself.

Use this holiday season to get clear with yourself.

Do not let another year slide by.

Two kinds of humans

One is still reptile meaning a predator, cold, calculating, no compassion, totally self-involved.

The other is human, competitive, warm, compassionate, caring, sociable.

Observe those around you which are they?

When meeting reptiles it is useful to remember that however nice you are one day they will attack you.

Reptiles always attack at some point.

Be warned!
Leave the reptiles alone.

And the whole world smiles with you.

Maybe, maybe not, but when you smile is it with your face?

Or with your eyes as well?

Just another question

However how we smile has impact.

Smiling with face muscles only is often a reflexive action.

Not much meaning just a mechanical action.

Smiling with the eyes says so much more.

It lights up the area around you.

Says something to the one at whom it is directed.

Invest some energy into your smile.

Smile with your eyes!


Because your eyes are the gateway to the real you.

It is saying something warm to another human being, and that's a nice thing to do for both of you.

What does a manufacturer do when everyone can copy him?

Some sue.

Some start adding new features.

Some move on to a higher level of technology.

Some reduce price.

Some get out of that business.

Some buy the competition.

Some ask for governmental help.

Some use strong arm tactics.

There may be one or two more strategies but that's about it.

Our point?

There are only so many options.

Know your options in any given situation.

Know when to take action and when not to.

Do the work now before the problem is on top of you.

We have all seen the same movies plus minus

Seen or heard the same news.

TV is the same old stuff.

Too much sport.

Too many soaps.

More than enough self-important people.

Nothing lasts long now.

The new this or that loses its meaning more and more quickly.

Disillusioned by being fed everything?

So many are.

What a shame.

All you have to do is lift your eyes and notice how beautiful this planet is.

Time to use your own eyes.

Do not let others do these things for you.

See for yourself, in fact time to live for yourself.

Take back your eyes and ears.

Step out of the illusion machine.

Sleep seen diferently

The most usual explanation for sleep is that the body becomes tired and more or less depleted of it's vitality and then seeks repose.

In fact the opposite is true.

For instead of having suffered a loss of vitality, the body at the conclusion of the day has more life in it than when it wakened.

During the waking state the life waves rush into the body with greater intensity every hour, and we being unable to resist them any longer than the period usually observed, they overpower us and we fall asleep.

While sleeping the life waves adjust themselves to the molecules of the body, and when equilibrium is complete we again wake to continue the contest with life.
How about that?

The power of mantras

What is a mantra?

A mantra is a word or saying imbued with power.

In our modern times many people do not believe in such things.

However those who love another person feel love whenever they think of that other person or say the name of that person.

The gambler always thinks of cards and often inspite of himself always beholds dice and cards.

The drinker only needs to think of drink to become thirsty.

The money man lives with dreams of more money.

The ambitious man dwells on thoughts of fame and the plaudits of the multitude.

In all these cases the names of the obsession have become idolised.

Now imagine that instead of swimming in the depths of selfishness and personal desire you chose to do something for your fellow man.

All of us can enoble our lives by the simple mechanism of mantras that extol the higher values of helping each other.

Yes really mantras can work.

Daily initiation - 2

It is in the life of every one to have a moment of choice, but that moment is not set for any particular day.
It is the sum total of all days, and it may be put off until the day of death,
and then it is beyond our power, for the choice has then been fixed by all the acts and thoughts of a lifetime.

We are self-doomed at that hour to just the sort of life, body environment, and tendencies which will best carry out our karma.

This is a thing solemn enough, and one that makes the "daily initiation" of the very greatest importance to every earnest student.

Daily initiation - 1

For most the idea of daily initiation will be a new one, however this is how it really is if one wants to grow and move towards enlightenment or mastery of nature.
It is supposed by some that it is always and in every case a set and solemn occasion for which the candidate is prepared and notified in advance.

While there are some initiations surrounded by such solemnities as these, the daily one without success in which no aspirant will ever have the chance to try for those that are higher comes to the disciple with almost each moment.

It is met in our relations with our fellows, and in the effects upon us of all the circumstances of life.

And if we fail in these, we never get to the point where greater ones are offered.

If we cannot bear momentary defeat, or of a chance word that strikes our self-love finds us unprepared, or if we give way to the desire to harshly judge others, or if we remain in ignorance of some of our most
apparent faults, we do not build up that knowledge and strength imperatively demanded from whoever is to be master of nature.

Is often decried by scientists as a useless, although perhaps a pleasant power.


Personal power is only possible if you can direct power to a point or spot.

If your imagination cannot make a picture of the spot and of the force, you can never - except by accident - cause the forces to flow there.

So the first step is to cultivate the interior image making power.

Unless this is done, the will in these places can hardly be directed to its end, for with no image the forces have no place to focus upon.

As all of us have our own methods interiorly, peculiar to us and to no other, one should not look for hard and fast rules for all.

Go to work on yourself and find out your own processes of thought and feeling.

If truly pursued anything can be discovered.


Imagination is a crucial tool in human consciousness evolution.

Yes they keep coming in the big world of deceit and lies.
Lies and yet more lies.

We are living in what is known as Kali Yuga, a black period.

A time when evil does not bother to hide.

When the only value is money.

The only worship that of money.

For most a shrug and put up with the squalls that result from evil people fighting over the spoils.

Note well though that you are responsible for yourself.

For what you do or do not do.

Do not waste your life being a spectator to evil.

Make your life one of effort.

Hold to decent values.

Act upon these values.

No excuses, life is not easy today.

But that is not what you are here for.

See beyond the squalls.

Hazard lights

Men seldom notice the hazard lights flashing from their female partners.

Little things done by men that irritate women.

Little things not done by men that irritate women.

So often men have no consciousness that their actions or lack thereof are building tension.

Sailing obliviously into squally waters.

Until suddenly the storm breaks often over apparently nothing at all.

To the man that is.

To the woman the final straw in the portfolio of errant behaviour.

So many differences between us it's a miracle we can be with each other at all.

Or is it?

How boring to imagine perfect harmony.

Homosexuals do not manage to live in perfect harmony either and they are the same sex.

So could it be that we are here to help each other grow?

To give each other that other half that we do not have?

Instead of hitting each other over the head.

Lets listen a bit more and learn from our partners.

Karma and us

People do not realise that the attraction they feel for each other is often karmic.


That they need to be with that particular person in order to learn their lessons or finish their karmic relations with that person.

Notice how some people stay with each other when everything says get out move away.

Just so and they cannot until the lessons are learnt and or the karma is paid.

So if you are in such a relationship then time to try and figure out what are you there to learn?

Oh and if you do manage to jump ship and move on to another relationship without learning your lessons then it will be the same experience all over with the new partner.

Nature is not easily thwarted.
Life is not quite as simplistic as advertisers would have you believe!

Little children are clean, in mind that is

So is nature.

The energy of both helps us to feel good.

They can help us feel clean.

Nice if we could always feel clean

Observe how feeling clean can change your mood.

Stay clean!

Why black?

So many people wear black clothing

It doesn't show the dirt some say.

It is flexible others say.

For some it is a religious diktat.

For others it is mourning.

Indeed why is black the colour of mourning?

Because it is a sombre expression?

Maybe that's why so many in politics and business chose it, to give the illusion of gravitas.

For many it is a reflection of their feelings.

Black is not a good colour to wear all the time.

Anyway you look at it there is a negative component.

Black is not conducive to good health.

Over time the wearing of black affects the wearer.

Often people who are angry and frustrated wear black.

So before wearing black more than once in a while look at your emotions.

Does back really express what you feel?

Black can be really black!

Post holidays

Did you bring anything back with you?

New ideas.


Fresh energy.


Or did you feel -





If you fall in the first group then fine.

If you fall in the later group though.

Time to sort things out.

This will not happen by itself.

It needs your uunderstanding that there is a problem

Your life.

Be clear about what it is

Check that your understanding is accurate.

That you are living in reality.

Act to resolve this and ask for help if necessary.

It won't go away until you address this issue.
Post holiday blues with the fantasy gone is time to sort things.

Mmmmm - 35

Only this way.

One Universal Deity - the God of Immutable Law,

Not charity;

The God of Just Retribution

Not mercy,

Which is merely an incentive to evil-doing and to a repetition of it.

The greatest crime that was ever perpetrated on mankind was committed on that day when the first priest invented the first prayer with a selfish object in view.

Document care

We all carry them.

Some carefully placing them in the same place every time and others more carelessly putting them anywhere.

All goes fine until we lose or misplace one or worse have one stolen.

Did you have a copy of your details?

Do you know the number to call to cancel it?

Small effort, major impact.

Worth doing.
