Time’s Wisdom – Blog No. 17

Time's Wisdom

Wisdom evolves in the way all things that evolve, do.  That is its wisdom.  There is profound clarity in the statement:  ‘Wisdom is choosing now what will make sense later.’  That later – when it comes – will provide in its demonstration evidence of wisdom’s consistent evolution.  Wisdom trusts instinct.  Instinct stems from experience.  From time to time it bypasses instinct on its Wisdom Business of researching some learning and as such, focussing on the horizon, it trips over a growth node.  That Wisdom has tripped once (or so) is not of much consequence in the big picture.  In the big picture space has been made for tripping.  Besides, trip-wires are made to be tripped over.  It is how you fall that matters, and whether or not you get up.

It would seem that we do not all subscribe to the same Wisdom System.  That is a good thing.  I trust in what I trust, I believe what I do.  That is because I have time-trialed my years and let them come to their own conclusions.  It makes sense to work your learning to your advantage, given that true learning does not come easily.  Being ‘at an advantage’ does not – in this context – mean that you will find yourself in a privileged position through virtue of your learning, it means that you will find yourself in the perfect position to do what it is in your life that needs doing.  The degree of personal work you did with the experiences you chose to have determines your capacity to handle further learning.  Handling capacity is what further learning is all about and a life without further learning is pointless.

Naturally, Time’s Wisdom flies.  If it was always to walk, it might miss some of its own most important points.  It is important to understand that although Wisdom is conveyed by every language on the planet it does not rely on verbal communication.  That is why the link between Wisdom and instinct is a strong one.  Some things you know.  And when you know that you know them, then is when you learn the extent of your experiences’ evolution.

Dream weaving – Blog No. 8

Cat in the Hat

It makes sense to turn your dreams into your reality, otherwise what is the point in having them?  It is not easy to realise your dreams – you need first of all to have had some, and the word ‘had’ infers that your dreaming for your future should have started the day your first breath was taken, and second of all you need the stamina to maintain those dreams in their pure form for the duration of their development.  That development can take decades, centuries.  Lifetimes.  Especially when your dreams are for the betterment of everything.  It is empowering when you see your dreams begin to manifest your actuality.  It is proof – if you should require such from yourself – that your path is right on track and your efforts have been worth every depredation.  It is proof, too, that those self-same efforts have been greater than every single one of the disappointments encountered along the way.

When dreaming, remember that it is not helpful to dream up shit that can never be realised.  Dreaming up and believing in bullshit is the most efficient way to destroy the striving of your soul.  A soulful sense of worth is nurtured by the setting of achievable goals.  The size of the dreams you have depends on the capacity you have to see them through.  If you give up after five minutes then you must understand your dreams will be pea-sized.  If you equip yourself to stay the distance, your dreams will have no ceiling.  It is difficult to explain this concept to small-minded idiots, but try anyway.  They may still fold after five minutes because they are weak-minded, or simply not equipped with what it takes to build sky castles – or climb them – but at the end of the road when they are faced with their failures they will know not to bitch and whine.   Blame for their failures can be ignored entirely – they own their weaknesses and are wholly responsible for their defeat.

Warp and weft.  This way, and that.  How you weave your dreams is obviously vital to you and your particular environment – and to those close to you.  With this in mind, it is essential to ensure that what you dream has broad-spectrum benefits.  That way, should any of your dreams get waylaid or ‘led astray’, you can be sure that their far-reaching effects will still reach you, no matter where you happen to be.  Dreams are personal.  They resonate with your destiny.  That means stolen dreams – hijacked lives – will, by their very nature of being, still be delivered to the right recipient when the time is right.  In the meanwhile – until the thefts and thieves are exposed – dreams that belong to another may well wreak havoc on the lives of those thieves, and the lives of those close to them.  Remember that.  And don’t bitch and whine when you get what you deserve.  In this world – we all do.  Eventually.

Good and Evil – Blog No. 5


The estimate is that 5% of the world’s population is evil.  Another 5% of it is saintly.  That is equilibrium.  The rest is a mixture of good and bad.  Good far outweighs bad on this planet.  Therefore:  Good and Evil are an effective collaboration when it comes down to balancing the scales.  In every good person there is the potential for saintly behaviour and the ability to realise this is the only obstacle to actually realising it.

The reverse of evil is live.  That is what life is for.  The ability to realise this is the only hindrance to actually realising it.  It does not matter what the reverse of good is because good never goes backwards.  Good goes better, and then best.

It would make sense – for the maintenance of equilibrium – to address the issues of evil with as much enthusiasm as is allocated to the assessment and assimilation of all the aspects of good.  The problem with unaddressed issues is that they fester.  Unless you are equipped to manage them with sensitivity – objectively – from a distance, in which case they can be quickly assimilated and used to further your understanding of yourself as an entirety.

Childhood – Blog No. 56


Childhood is for children. That means it is a time of innocence. Every child has innocence. Should you be responsible for taking the innocent wonder out of the life-experience of a child, you will have a lot to answer for when that child becomes an adult. It is not easy to ensure that a childhood is untainted in this day and age, but it is possible.

Childhood is short for most children these days, that is why it is important to cherish the idea of it. Again I will say it, if you cannot offer a child a happy childhood, why have one? That kind of a betrayal is sacrilege. Children are all born with hope. Love, and innocence too. If you choose to damage these faculties in a child, you can safely consider yourself a cruel person.

There are those parents that will live vicariously through their children, and this, too, tampers with the early experience that children should be having. Children need guidance, they do not need their parents to make their choices for them. Childhood is a time for exploration, for children to learn how to make sense of the world they have been born into. An adult is not able to make up a child’s mind.

Home – Blog No. 90

sexyappleThe drive to go home is a strong pull.  Every one of us has a sense of ‘home’.  We will spend our entire lives travelling there.  It is the wild in you that will direct you to your beginnings.  That is why it is important to acknowledge your wild.  You will take its direction.  It is worth realising that ‘home’ for you is not necessarily ‘home’ for your partner, or others in your immediate family.  You can all be travelling, simultaneously, to different places.  Home is a resting place.  You will feel this, it is a knowing.  You know when you get there, when you leave.  The place in which you live is not necessarily your ‘home’.  It depends on how fully you inhabit it.

Home is where your heart is.  Your heart is where your truth is.  Where you send your head is where you end up.  Every time.  Home is a sanctuary.  Establish early where your ‘home’ is and map the maze that life builds for you around it.  Home will be at core.  Source.  Like a salmon can find its way miles back upstream to its beginnings, you can find your way back home should you need to.  Time and again.  For some, ‘home’ is that safe place they have in their heads – where there are sunny beaches, rainbows, fluffy bunnies.  For others, ‘home’ is their union with another person.  It is quite possible to have a relationship deep enough that it takes you both ‘home’.  I suppose in an ideal world that level of devotion would be evident in every relationship.

Home replenishes the soul.  The starving soul.  And at times every single person on this planet has a starving soul.  When you hunger for ‘home’, that is when you know.  It is visceral.  A calling.  And it grows larger the longer you ignore it.  In fact, your longing for ‘home’ is metastatic.  It starts in your heart, then it begins to overwhelm your reason for being and it conquers your conditioning, the will of the system.  You become acutely aware of its impatience gnawing at your insides – at the edges of your mind – and at some point, you must obey its call.  It is advisable to explain your call to ‘home’ when it comes, before you act on it.  Partners can feel abandoned if you should disappear for a time, on a mission to take yourself ‘home’.  Children will miss you whilst you are gone.  But partners will get over being left, and children will be happy to be reunited with you when you return, refreshed.  Going ‘home’ is cyclical.  Roll with it.

Revolution – Blog No. 63

love-revolution1It’s time to look at what it means to (r)evolve.  A full revolution will take you 360°.  That means going full-circle.  When you have hit your beginning – and you will know when that is – you are ready to decide how you would like to proceed.  Until you reach your beginning, you cannot start.  It makes perfect sense.  Perfect sense is where you want to be.  In order to find perfect sense, you have to try different things.  You might like a bit of this, a bit of that.  It takes time to build for yourself a perfect picture.

Your revolution can happen any time you want it to.  You must just be decisive.  You cannot be wishy-washy when it comes to choosing revolution.  What will it take for you to reach your beginning?  It will take you facing up to yourself.  That means looking equally long at your good and your bad.  In your 360° revolution you will find yourself in every frame, different.  You will understand from this finding that you are – in this particular embodiment – simply another challenge sent to face circumstance.  We are all gladiators in this life.  The key to a successful revolution is to accept yourself in every frame.  It is not easy to accept every part of yourself, but it must be done.  Be tolerant of whatever you present to yourself in terms of life trials, too, i.e. the choices you make.  You make your choices consciously.  Know one thing – they alone are what cause the calm or drama in your life.  If you are tired of drama, remove yourself from the dramatic situation you are a part of and refrain from making the kind of choices that take you back there.  It is as easy as that.

Once our (r)evolution is complete, we find ourselves in a new, clean headspace.  In this headspace you will find your best, the part of you that has been watching, and learning, all along.  Whilst you have been busy living – however you have chosen to do that – the work has been going on.  That is the wonder of (r)evolution.  It is not for you to be alarmed by the open ground ahead.  The best news about open ground is that there is space to create what is needed.  When you get given your reigns and the authority to manage without interference both your dark and light sides then you will find that you have every single tool at your disposal with which to craft perfection.  If you are not interested in a perfect world then you are on the wrong planet.

First blog about me

I write contemporary fiction.  I employ various genres in my self-expression.  I am passionate about the gothic and have an interest in metaphysics, magic, art, mysticism, alchemy and the senses.  I believe there are more than six senses.  I have three works open at the moment and spend each day creating, whether it be a small amount – or to a large degree.  I am intrigued by social dynamics and find the human condition to be the most fascinating experience.
