Ready to Unplug?

Spiritual Journey Healing

I rarely watch TV, especially mainstream news.

There’s a sweep of people who are unplugging; who’ve decided to stop watching TV/news due to the significant portion of violent events they hear/see. The content of the stories presented and the way that we react to them create a cycle of lower vibrational thoughts, feelings and actions. It creates fear. If you’re trying to raise your vibration, watching the news isn’t going to help.

We Are What We Read

“Reading maketh a full man; and writing an exact man. And, therefore, if a man write little, he need have a present wit; and if he read little, he need have much cunning to seem to know which he doth not.”- Francis Bacon
Reading widens our horizon and broadens our mind and that serve as a bulwark against narrow mindedness and hate. Read, know and expand your views. This poem succinctly summarises what we need as human beings. Good work

Poesy plus Polemics

we are what we read
the facts and the fictions
that spring from the
soul of a writer
attach to our genome
adsorb to our helices
polymath layers that
coat our identity
dressed to step out
into civilization

we are what we read
a literate essence
whose worth all depends
on the worth of the thoughts
taken straight off the pages
we choose to believe
pages run with the
ink and the sweat
someone else spent
enriching our ken

“Reading is an act of civilization; it’s one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities.”

I have to Differ!©

In this day of rose coloured perspective on our humanity. In this age where walls are being thought of of being built to keep “others” out. In this clime of hate, xenophobia and racial discrimination, this is a very good breath of fresh air. When we separate based on colour then we put the WORLD in a one leg race and the result of such  are all around US- Syria, the charade playing out in USA election campaign and the shooting of defenceless Blacks among others. What a shame for our humanity.

I sadly would have to differ

With you, if you are racist.

I differ because I am not,

And sadly because you are.

I stand up for Fairness, for Justice,

For freedom of choice,

I call for Unity, I call for Peace.

I stand up against war.

I stand up for humanity.

What do you stand for?

“There are ultimately only two possible adjustments to life; one is to suit our lives to principles; the other is to suit principles to our lives. If we do not live as we think, we soon begin to think as we live. The method of adjusting moral principles to the way men live is just … Continue reading the rock and the waves (i)
