- Read the Rule Book. Of course one exists.
- Take heed of rules 1 through 21 before throwing the Rule Book away. Then throw yourselves away because I do not need you.
- 2 was recently disqualified and is therefore obsolete. 1 is dead, as expected. 3, therefore, moves to 1. The proviso was this: if 1 chooses to go first, 2 will not follow. Incidentally, nor does 3. If you went in on 2, good for you. That was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
- A series of pairs. 4 sets of 2. Without every single aspect of every single 8 you will fail. Be careful what you summons. It might be yourself.
- Had an agenda that it thought was cleverly set aside. It wasn’t. It was another set of stupid Stepford wives selling a soul that was never theirs’ to begin with.
- Flipped and was then dragged backwards through the eye of a needle. It is yet to register the extent of the threading.
- Has Heaven. That is the way it should be. Heaven was not made into a reformatory for the sake of Hell’s angels. Hell can well hold its own. Heaven was reformed for one reason alone: to extend the longevity of its own lie. Its facility was recently emptied and shut down when God discovered its inhabitants were complicit in Earth’s suffering.
- An hourglass, half empty and running. It will not be refilled, or turned over.
- A thrice of triangles, spliced. I hope all three are pleased. It is their dream, this savagery. I trust they can dream themselves into Elysium, too.
- The usual place. That would be where – The Cupboard? I do not like sitting in a cupboard, so I am moving.
- Two halves of a pupating caterpillar. The entire butterfly is yet to manifest as real. And 2 tens do not make 20. Not in this instance. In this instance, two 10’s make 1.
- Pleads the 5th so awaits the same fate.
- Is certain.
- Love is a love, is a love.
- Found a form of freedom.
- Is not loyal. It is rather a reminder of the company we are sometimes obliged to keep.
- Will throw the Rule Book at you whether or not you have read it. And then he will move on.
- Has been around this block before. It knows the landmarks well.
- Sleeps with eyes wide shut.
- Is empty.
- 1:21. Make that fit any goddamned verse you like. 21 is not religious and the choice to be – or not to be – is his prerogative.

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.
Would you expect peace in Utopia? Would you assume it to be a wholly peaceful place? I think it is better never to assume anything, no matter how well you may have convinced yourself that you know what is best in a particular situation. There is always someone who knows better than you do. I have learnt that lesson in life and I trust its consistency. The trick is to find that person. Does Utopia – or Elysium, Heaven, a harem of 1000 virgins, Paradise, etc – exist for you? Even just in your dreams? Does it mean to you perfect, or does it mean ideal? You need to define these things for yourself before you can set about finding yours. That yours is the same as mine – or the next person’s – is a possibility, but this is doubtful in a world this self sufficient. We each have a private ideal, a personal state of perfection that we (ought) to be striving towards. It depends on how you view perfection as to how your Utopian odyssey will unfold. Your journey is ongoing, you will find yourself there, in time. It just takes time.
The way to peace is to educate. Ask Malala Yousafzai, support her cause with $10 a month if you do not yet do anything for your world. What is $10 worth in your world? Encourage your children to support a worthy cause – let them learn the value of compassion. Teach them that it is important to give something back when you have more than others do and teach them this through your example. It is more and more apparent in these everydays that our children are very capable of understanding the meaning behind an action, a behaviour – i.e. a motivation. Do not take from them this facility. Nourish it, them. Let them learn empathy, through affection. It will get them far in life.
In pursuit of peace (and quiet) it is your responsibility as an adult to demonstrate your true nature in front of children. They see straight through an act and besides, they learn assertion. Let them read your truth because this is how you show a child respect for their time. Their assessment. Letting them know your weaknesses as well as your strengths is not a failure, it is a clued-up move. Apologise when you shout, curse. Explain if you cry. If you curse under your breath, that counts. Saying sorry says hey – it is human to make mistakes. Life is dramatic – there is no getting away from that reality. If you think it is not then you need to open your eyes and notice for once (in a very long while) its colour. Colour brings pain, mind you. Moderate that pain. It is vital for children to realise through your demonstration the real of this world we live in. It is an exercise in strengthening, stretching their emotional intelligence. Please recognise a child’s emotional intelligence when you spot it. The more equipped children are to handle themselves (in any situation that presents itself), the more stable their end life-view is going to be. Children do not think in infinities. They need an end view that is stable – whatever that stability entails. Theirs’ can be surprisingly flexible, their stability – it depends what keeps them happy. Children have extraordinary capacity and they will instinctively stretch themselves. Let them. What is necessary to know is that it is essential that a child develops a life-view that perpetually fires up new synapses with excitement. Children should laugh a lot and they should be shown a great deal in their lives, as well as a good example. If you cannot show them a good example – you will need to trust that your child will role-model on the dominant adult in the vicinity who sets best that example. An example. If you cannot trust that your child will know right from wrong, then you have a problem.
And if you do not know who Malala Yousafzai is, perhaps you should. She deserves a Nobel Peace Prize one day.
