Fantasy – Blog No. 33

fantasy

There are days here and there when I wonder what fantasy actually is.  Apart from being a state of mind, it is clearly an ideal place to be at some stage in your daily thinking.  Fantasy can be anything from reality right through to illusion – and everything in between.  Fiction is not fantasy.  Fantasy is very real.  It takes an extraordinary level of concentration to maintain the purity of thought required for the creation – or the construction, if you like – of a flawless fantasy.  It takes some practice, too.

Fantasy requires minds to find a steady stream of consciousness through which their ideal can be projected.  To find the ideal you need to be a positive thinker.  To find a steady stream is essential.  Fantasies do not travel well under bumpy conditions.  They are delicate in nature.  Nature does not have fantasies about killing, or causing suffering to living things.  There will be fantasies found about eating, feeding frenzies.  About sex.  That is perfectly natural.  Nature takes time to build a fantasy with the reality; she does not waste time dreaming about pain.

Fantasies are for the bravehearts.  For those that dare to think big.  Small fantasies are not necessarily smaller than any bigger ones you may have along your way.  It depends how deep small goes.  How shallow your perception.  When you understand the motivation behind a fanciful way of choosing to live, you will understand how absolutely essential the propagation of fantasy is as a very real – and viable – reality.

A good day for a Zulu wedding – Blog No. 31

culture

Culture is important to those that have one.  A culture develops through the centuries and is dependent on its people living, its ancestors.  We all have ancestors.  Some are just better remembered than others.  There is little that is interesting about those people lacking a fundamental history about which they can feel personally proud, no matter what that history entailed.  We have all experienced exploitation and violence in our times.  We have all had to swallow our pride at one time or another.  Should your culture be dull and empty of resonance, that can be considered a problem of sorts.  There are ways to remedy this deficiency, but they are few and far between.

A good way to begin the remedying of a dying culture is to give it a place in your future.  Find out what you are, who is in you.  The coding of your DNA can give you this information.  Once you know the scope of your coding then you need to contemplate how much of your person has evolved through nurture – and what percentage of you is a given from Nature.  These kinds of names and numbers are important if you wish to survive a cultural extinction.

There is an absolute strength and a deep humility in an established culture.  It is the balance of these factors – amidst others – that determines the success and reach of a culture’s influence.  A beautiful people generally have a beautiful culture.  If you can recognise beautiful people you will intuitively understand that.  Those with beautiful cultures live with the knowledge that the connection they have with their past is what will carry them into the future.  We can all learn from those people.

Revolution – Blog No. 32

revolution

Revolutions are occasionally necessary, despite their untimely arrival.  The hows and whys of their happening are perhaps obvious to some, to others their actuality is a surprise.  A revolution can be a pleasant surprise.  It can also cause a nightmare for those who will circumvent change.  Change comes when it is ready.  It cannot be subverted.  It can be delayed, naturally, but it cannot be prevented.  Change inspires fear in the hearts of those who need the order of the old establishment to conceal their misdeeds.  Misdeeds are misdeeds – they stand out in the barren landscape of inescapable lies.  Lies are lies – nothing can hide their devastation from the truth.

Some people would prefer not to have to revolve.  Or evolve, it would seem.  That is unfortunate when those people have no choice.  Some will go around and around and around, for eternity.  Others will pull their particular revolution straight and leave themselves an open passage to the future.  There will always be a future if you choose to believe that it exists.  Knowing it exists is one thing, the other is finding it.  If you do not know at this point where you are in your own future then it would be safe to say that you probably won’t have one to speak of.  If you were alive inside your future you would not have to find it – and nor would you still be searching.  You would instead be sitting – and waiting.

The purpose of any revolution is to show you something new.  New is interesting, no matter how you may feel about it personally.  You can be part of a revolution or you can stand on the sidelines and watch it roll by.  Either way it will happen.  Revolutions don’t tend to ask for permission.  They always come at exactly the right time.  They know what their work is and they know why it needs doing.  Revolutions are worth the effort needed to set them in motion.  When they are successful, they take ideas and their people to new places.

Solitude vs Transference – Blog No. 31

moons

It is challenging to prevent yourself from practicing transference.  In your every exchange with another there will be energy expended in the direction of the other and there will be energy from the other that will find its way to you.  It is necessary to be selective with your energies.  It is wise in this life to interact with energies that bring out your best.  In this regard it is helpful to be of a positive mindset – optimists tend towards energies that lend themselves to development rather than destruction.  An important learning is which energies you are willing to accept and which energies you need to deflect.  Under no circumstances is it necessary to accept every energy that comes your way.

Solitude for many people is a plateau.  A place of repose.  It is not to say that solitude does not lend itself to development, but the nature of the progress made with yourself on your own is perhaps slower than the advances that can be made in relationships.  Naturally, it does depend on the status of the relationship you find yourself in.  If there is unnecessary stress in the relationships through which you choose to learn, it is better to take yourself out of those particular relationship equations.

Whether it can be said that solitude is preferable is a matter of personal opinion.  It depends on what kind of a relationship you have with yourself.  At times it is far more pleasant to be alone than it is to be with idiots.  That is not insulting to people in general, it is just how it is.  How you get ‘alone’ is your business.  Some can take themselves to that place and some cannot.  For those that cannot, it is a pity.

Stealing – Blog No. 30

onelittleprincess

If stealing is something you rely on for a living, you need to realise that the system has its hands around your throat.  When a person is forced – or chooses – to steal from another, no matter how much or how little the other has, it is a devastating sign that the world of ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ is going to implode.  A situation that exists which entices people of all descriptions to believe that they are better off in life – and the after-life – for their stealing from another, is not a situation I would choose to venture into.  I just wouldn’t.  Call it morals.  Call it values.  Call it whatever the fuck you like.  Labels matter to some people.

Shop-lifting is not a word many of us are unfamiliar with.  It is part of the capitalist system’s development.  Why shops that sell products that few can afford wonder when their shrinkage is annually fairly substantial is beyond comprehension.  That people should not steal is a commandment that has been around for a very long time.  That shops should be prohibitively expensive for most of the populace is not a commandment.  It should be.  Temptation is a dangerous pastime to foster.  As is envy.

Taking is not stealing.  As long as you take what is given.  When you take what is forbidden that is called stealing.  You don’t have, of course, to take a given – but at least in that situation you are given a choice.  It is when people are never given the choice that problems arise.  And problems that arise – particularly those that have been hidden beneath the carpet – are guaranteed to trip up the idiots.

Language – Blog No. 29

earthhour

Until you have been taught a language other than your mother-tongue, you cannot appreciate what it is that you have learned to speak.  You cannot be sure how you speak, either.  The solution, therefore, is to decide in which other language you would like to become fluent and become familiar with its people.  That is the best way to begin anything.  Make certain you get a teacher that knows what they are speaking, too, otherwise it’s unlikely that you will ever be able to communicate properly.

There are languages that are more beautiful than others.  Some places have ways of saying things that resonate with a person’s soul, their entire being.  Silence, too, is a language.  It is not simple to speak in silence, but it is beautiful.  I was told once that the French have a word – or a phrase – to describe that moment right before orgasm, which I think is particularly special.  I should like to know if that is true.  If it isn’t, perhaps it should be.

Language serves more purposes than communication.  It carries in its essence everything we have all ever been.  When we think in that way about ourselves, the world as we know it, it would make sense to value each and every language that has ever been developed.  It would make sense to value the people that speak those languages, too.

Angels – Blog No. 28

angels

A white feather is said to indicate the presence of an angel.  The recent presence.  Should there be proof to the contrary I would like to see it.  Whether you believe in angels or whether you don’t is not really what matters, the importance of believing in something is what is helpful to your cause – i.e. your life.  If you are still of the opinion that those who choose to believe in a ‘greater’ something are delusional, you should perhaps ask them about their illusions.  If they have none – if they do not subscribe to illusion in the first place – then it is not possible for them to be delusional about a ‘greater’ something or any ‘other’ something, either, when all is considered.

An angel’s reputation is for ‘watching over’.  For protecting.  It is not a reputation that an angel takes lightly.  That is for a good reason.  Where protection is necessary, angels have their purpose.  If there should be a person on this planet that does not need protection from time to time, that would surprise me.   It would probably also delight me.  It is occasionally vital to feel delighted.  It is also occasionally vital to feel safe.

There is a good reason, too, to have guardians for what is commonly referred to on Earth as ‘Hell’.  Hell has some very valuable assets.  Should people be disinclined to believe that that is the case, they should visit it.  They may be pleasantly surprised by what they find behind its doors.  Mind you, not just anyone can walk through its doors.  As for ‘Heaven’, there is a passcode for Hell.  Naturally if you fail to fit the passcode, you cannot gain entry and you are automatically redirected back to Heaven.  Nevermind.  When given the choice, that is where most chose to go.
