(Apologies for the typos, I’m in a rush AND some of the keys aren’t working! But I have been increasingly slack with the typos this year!)

I am infinite. I am a multi-dimensional being. The future is infinite potential. I can have anything. I can do anything.

Feel the happiness and freedom of manifesting your dreams now, as if they’re here already….

So, in reality everything is as it is, time is an illusion and everything is connected and inseparable from the mind that perceives it, or as Craig reminded me – “Nothing needs to be affirmed as all is super complete”. So remain open to all possibilities and realities?

Last night / this morning I was trying to remind a friend (and myself to be honest) not to take life too seriosly. Paradoxically it can take some seemingly grim realisations and reality checks to remind you why life is a massive joke and you should enjoy what you can when you can. This was, more or less, what I said…

I still catch myself taking things too seriously occasionally, it’s really not worth it.
On SO many levels.
None of us are getting out of here alive, although infinite universal consciousness has no birth or death (or time), but the illusion of individuality may be limited so enjoy it while we can.
This planet has been here for billions of years and we’ll get 80-100 if we’re lucky (infinite possibilities, chi gung and spring water could stretch the years but who wants to have the same body and consciousness forever anyway? Infinite consciousness, open intelligence, is already one and eternal.
Even if we reincarnate (I’m pretty convinced but then again if time is an illusion that point is pointless anyway) IF we reincarnate this whole lifetime is a blink of the eye between hundreds or thousands of lifetimes (and that’s seeing time as linear, when time itself is an illusion according to physics and gurus.)
And on top of all that any answers we get lead to more questions the best we can do is try to be positive and try to enjoy ourselves. So spread love and laugh as much as you can
🙂

So I’m not into resolutions so much these days. They seem to reaffirm and reify that your not already perfect. Affirmations could be seen in the same way but the way I figure, this illusion of time doesn’t appear to be going anywhere and affirmations – while they may also require some actions – are at least a step in the direction of positive solutions ie a poitive way to spend the illusion of time. I mean what’s the alternative to positive solutions? Exactly. So I requested some NYE affirmations instead of resolutions this year.

Affirmation suggestions from friends

I am pure Love.”

I am Exponential Omnipresent Exaltation.”

“We are free”

“I am happy and healthy and whole in mind, body and soul. I am a co creator of my reality, flowing in synchronicity, every thing I desire will be my destiny. Most of all I am free. Free from shame and lack and pain, free to move and do and say, free to travel, free to stay, free to be what and who I am, to feel the joy that I can. Free to create. I meditate for a peaceful world, for my friends and family to be happy too, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do, I love them all infinitely and my hearts wish is to see them grow in their beneficial power, and I wish this deeply for myself n all, I’m tired of feeling small. Abundance flows as confidence grows, no need to feel lack when you’ve got food and fire and clothes on your back and I am so so grateful for the blessings I have but there is always room for a little more flow, I welcome into my life enough for me to easily fulfil my dreams and destiny.”

Now what other specifics shall we co-create/affirm? Sustainable living? Financial abundance / independence / wealth? Any ideas?

This time two years ago I wrote the following – “People also relate to poetry where we the poets remind you the listener how wonderful it is to be you and alive. It doesn’t have to be self-referential. Positive affirmations like “I can do anything” are true, good reminders and sound great, but “YOU can do anything” feels even better, and “WE can do anything”? Well that’s perfect.”

0kay, so having said that, let’s modify…

We are infinite. We are multi-dimensional beings. 0ur future is infinite potential. We can have anything. WE can do anything.

We WILL live sustainably. We already live in financial abundance, financial independence and wealth. Feel the happiness and freedom of manifesting your dreams now, they’re here already….

A friend wants to manifest something specific “I would like a car so I can visit and discover amazing places and people. I also manifest enough money to do the courses I want to do and enough energy to get creative every day.” Please take a moment visualise a lovely lady driving to sacred spot in England (and beyond) and meeting amazing people. Everything is already complete and perfect but in the illusion of time, It’s already happened, it’s already there.

I do have some specific things I will manifest in 2016. I will manifest, conceive, host and promote the most synchronously satisfying and inspiring events in London and Bristol with epic acoustic musicans AND epic DJs, inspirational talks and stalls. They will be financially profitable for the artists, for positive causes, my team and myself. The wheels are in motion, it’s already happened and I feel the satisfaction already.

I will live with people I love with nature on my doorstep.

I will be financially stable with savings growing.

I will qualify as a Steiner School Kindergarten teacher.

My lovely relationship with my wonderful girlfriend will continue to grow and blossom in mutually beneficial ways, creatively, emotionally, and life satisfaction.

I feel the happiness and freedom of manifesting your dreams now, they’re here already….

Already healed, already perfect.

I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me, and thank you.

Check this, it’s full of colourful sacred geometry. If you press the black play button you get some epic affirmations. And if you press the green play buttothat rainbow flower of life starts spinning. Far out dude! lol (Thanks Jocheryl x and Core Love) –

http://sacredgeometry.com/sacred-g-ascender-meditation/ After you click the black play button don’t forget to click the GREEN PLAY BUTT0N to make the sacred G spin. It’s a trip!

(ps I do have three vague resolutions…  Do more Chi Gung. Eat less meat. Make more money n save more money. It’s all doable, in fact it’s already done.)

The World WILL Know My Name (I’m Amazing)

Some more audacious, obnoxious, “I’m not depressed anymore” bars… 

THE WORLD WILL KNOW MY NAAAME! Oh him?
Visualising success, abundance flowin’, Balance growin’,

Enjoying the quantum flow, I feel like a million bucks,
enjoying the power of saying “no thankyou” to the average crutch,

even though I love sex, I love the power of saying no and,
Visualising success, abundance flowin’, Balance growin’,

Enjoying the quantum flow, I’m feeling successful,
enjoying the power of saying “no” to a million crutches. Yes? Cool.

not slut shaming, judging, or blaming, if the shoe fits be proud, claiming,
They don’t want emotional guys for one night stands – I rarely found my way in.

Now it’s my turn to be picky, ‘Pinky and the Brain’ing, taking
over the world. The world will know my name – cos I’m amazing!

We’re ALL amazing, but like Kitty Pride we’re phasing
in a new era. N like lion prides I’m hunting while you’re grazing.

Doctor Strange flow-er, Stormtrooper with flamethrower – I’m saying…
Flamethrower – cos I’m straight slaying while I’m flaming.

This Time Last Year

This time last year I would have described myself as depressed. I’m not now.

I’ve not been writing philosophical essays so much recently. Writing in that way for me tends to come out of introspection, often fuelled by depression. I’ve been in a good mood generally recently.
I’ve been writing more raps again. It’s easier to write fun raps when you’re in a good mood, I was writing philosophical raps, deep raps, political raps and emotional raps alot over the past two years as my soul burned through the crucibles of anxiety and depression, but fun raps were few and far between.

So, from what I can tell right now, three things in particular have helped shift my mood and focus over the past year. My relationship, the Balanced View training and a Jamie Catto workshop. (Edit: and travelling.)

(Edit: I am generally a very independent person so it is both difficult and ‘edgey’ for me to give thanks to trainings and workshops for personal development. I am proud of the personal development I have done on my own through introspection, contemplation, meditation, and relationships and not in the context of courses or contrived situations but everything flowed quite naturally this year towards these trainings and workshops in my own free time.
Shadow -> I don’t like giving other people credit for my emotional state or my wisdom but I am willing to learn humility and I have to be honest, so credit where credit is due.)

Now I’m not just happy because I’m in a relationship, I’m happy because I’m in a relationship with someone that helps me examine my shadow without being judgmental or critical. But I would not say a relationship is a good way to get out of depression, I would say acknowledging and accepting your shadow side is a good way to get out of depression, loving YOURSELF, the good and the bad, is a good way to get out of depression. It helps me to appreciate myself when someone else, someone awesome, appreciates me. So yeah, glad I’m in a relationship but a relationship is not a plaster to stick over sadness. I’m glad I’m in a relationship that has been deep, emotional and positive growth for both of us. I appreciate her, and I appreciate myself, and I appreciate the fact that she helps me to appreciate myself. Love yourself. If you don’t love yourself it’s hard to accept someone else’s love, in my experience it is best when you are partnered with someone who encourages you to look after yourself before you look after them and in my experience it is disastrous to be in a relationship where you are encouraged not to love yourself whether through subtle criticism or blatant abuse.

I must admit, I have to slightly reluctantly pay homage and give thanks to the Balanced View trainings in the nature of the mind (and reality.) Only reluctantly because I spent 8 years resisting and thinking I got it already but I have to admit it showed me things about myself I had not noticed or had hidden. So I am very grateful. I always vibed with their central teachings when I first came across it ten years ago but did not resonate with the format or the community. Alot of that was just resistance due to the fact that I generally defined myself in opposition to organisations and institutions, generally critical of organisations and institutions and couldn’t associate deep wisdom with conference rooms and projector screens. But it’s a positive institution, it’s a positive organisation and they do indeed communicate deep wisdom in conference rooms and projector screens (also in person and face to face.) What else put me off? The complete devotion of the community. I don’t know why that put me off, maybe I was screwed over by a cult in a previous life or something, but complete devotion to anything is ff-putting to me. But the members of the community seem to be happy and seem to consistently get real and practical progress in their lives and the devotion seems to be a pure and honest appreciation for the way the teaching has helped them. I continued to attend the occasional open meeting and then when I was at my lowest 2 years ago I started to attend some of their day-long and 3 day long trainings in the nature of the mind. This might have been the most useful in not being restricted by depression or anxiety, it helped me not judge my emotional state and not identify with the depression (it’s not who I am, it is simply something I am experiencing and that experience will g back t the nothing it came from whether I do anything about it or not.) It helped me normalise anxiety – everyone gets anxious, whether for a moment, a day or a month, and we all have our coping mechanisms. The less I considered them to be real things that had power over me the sooner their appearances lasted shorter and happened more infrequently. It’s not a psychological thing, and it’s not a cure for any medical condition, it’s just a perspective that opens you up to wider experiences and less restrictions. Despite my 8 years of resistance – I recommend to just about anyone.

I attended one of Jamie Catto’s workshops, entitled What About You? That’s something else I have to thank my girlfriend for, she was at least the 4th person to recommend his workshop (actually most people were recommending I do his shadow-work workshop but if I wasn’t already doing shadow stuff I never would have had the courage to ignore my anxiety and attend his motivation workshop.) Now I know I just called it a motivation workshop but I’m not sure that’s the word he would use to describe it. I will just describe what it did for me, I would describe it as a workshop that identifies my wildest dreams, grounded them in reality and then gave me both the practical and emotional tools to do it. Suffice t say I would not have done my crowdfunder if not for that workshop.

It’s all multi-dimensional and all of the above helped each other. Balanced View trainings helped me function in a relationship in ways that were more benficial for me and my partner, my partner helped raise my self esteem further and convinced me to do the Jamie Catto workshop but I might not have if I hadn’t learned through Balanced View to not be restricted by anxiety etc.

So, yeah. There are likely to be sad times in the future. And anxiety is still a frequent experience, I just rarely allow myself to be crippled by it (and try not to judge myself when I do.)

The phrase “Love yourself” has come into my lyrics more and more in the past 2 or 3 years. If anything is important (in our short lives on this tiny rock in the vastness of space), it’s important. Being loved by someone else wouldn’t matter if I didn’t love myself. Indeed even in this relationship when I was finding it hard to love myself I found it hard to believe anyone else could love me. We each hold the intelligence of the universe in a usable way, we are each an expression of mother nature, we are each highly complicated biological organism capable of love, art, and keeping our blood circulating without even having to consciously think about it, and we are all made of elements born in the centre of stars. Love yourself, you’re amazing.

There were other friends along the way and other experiences that helped put me back in cheerful mode. A big thanks to Thomas of Wildheart, and the Lost Cabaret crew as at Wildheart I found new members of my tribe and the Lost Cabaret cast provided like-minded philosophical, lovable huggers in London. Ashearon and his Quantum Shift also provided a vibe in London I didn’t think I would find. Passing Clouds (after 5 years of recommendations I finally went there in Winter 2014 and have kept going back all year.) The Hive. All my classmates and tutors on my Steiner School course as well, really supportive, lovely, lovables. Travelling across Europe with Dan and Flavio, that too was special. Making friends all over Europe, being reminded that I can go anywhere in the world and be loved for being myself. Thank you all for a year of growth, a year of looking at my shadows and learning to love them, a year of pushing some boundaries and dissolving others.

I really didn’t want to move to London in winter last year. And now I really don’t want to leave.

There are more people to thank. More moments to be grateful for. But that will do for now and apologies to anyone I happened to miss out during this train of thought.

This time last year I would have described myself as depressed. I’m not now. Thank you x

Thankyou Jamie Cattohttp://jamiecatto.com/workshops/

Poet Flowin #bars

Poet flowin better than yer average rapper, not line toeing,
rapper goin deeper than yer average poet, knowing you won’t win,
They say he wouldn’t get so deep if it’s sales he’s after, but I’m showin
I’m down for the cause but of course selling to the growing chosen
Cos universal consciousness is growin, the intelligence that’s open
we all possess already – you’re all perfect, nothing’s broken.
Headed to the top but it’s getting easier like my path is sloping
The Force is strong in this one, sometimes when I’m rapping I start glowing.
(just another day abundant with auspicious moments,
Lucky coincidences, and positive omens.)

They say life’s a B, well I’ve got that B moanin, groanin.
In fact life’s a goddess, so I’m making love n not just bonin.

Na Blame

I stopped blaming my parents for circumstances I was born in,
between lifetimes I could imagine my soul ignoring the warnin’.
We were all born in the context of global warming,
and the military industrial complex’s Cold Warring.
I stopped blaming politicians cos their third eyes need opticians.
I used to rinse em n diss em, with activists who wanted to lynch em,
If they can’t do best for the country can I blame them for doing best for their families financially?
If they casually endanger their own families with foreign policy casualties?

But we’re all doing the best we can with what we’ve been given,
…you won’t stop me livin my life my way, I say.
you won’t stop me livin for the greater good, only a hater would,
no such thing as a hater, hot as an LA Lakers hood.

It’s easy to blame, harder to accept we’re all trying,
and we’re all the same, harder to accept we’re all crying.
It’s easy to shame, harder to show empathy,
It would be alot easier to encourage you all to vent with me but
It’s easy to blame, harder to accept we’re all trying,
and we’re all the same, harder to accept we’re all crying.
It’s easy to shame, but also to show appreciation

Gratitude, big ups! And exaltation!

The Illusions of Space, Time and Self

So I don’t know what “I” means. I don’t know where I end and the rest of the universe begins.
Einstein said that time is an illusion. But then death and birth are simultaneous, as is the rest of life.

But if self is an illusion, and time is an illusion what are we all doing here? If our greatest scientists can’t even work out what consciousness is, what we are, where we are or when we are what are we ever arguing about ever? Nothing really matters?

Well Einstein did add the caveat that time is a very persistent illusion. Same could be said for self, politics etc. And all of that seems quite freeing from one perspective BUT it’s reality check time. Try telling someone time is an illusion when someone they love has just died. Try telling someone that self is an illusion when they lose a limb or even suffer from toothache. Try telling someone nothing really matters when they’re town is being bombed.

So there may be spiritual truths. There may be scientific truths. There may be emotional truths. They may all be true yet contradict each other. The universe may not be black and white. It might be scarier to accept that it’s grey. But it’s alot more fun to realise that it’s multi-coloured. And it’s alot more freeing to accept that we don’t know. Perhaps the only thing we ever know is what we should do right now. Perhaps we should consider ourselves lucky when we know that.
