I’ve never posted poetry here before… (mostly because I rarely write it!) and I know I’ve already made two other posts tonight… but here goes… searching endless dreams for an ancient love old homeland waking, the queen is found pride blinds, she cannot be gazed oh love restore glory to this mind wisdom to this […]

Enter the Positive Cycle - October 7, 2008 - Uncategorized

A little rant for you (as if I’m trying to drive you away from my blog. Thank God I’m not advertising any more ;) Don’t be afraid to do something. The more you courage you will get to open your eyes. The more your eyes are open the more you want to do. There’s an […]

Watch Peaceable Kingdom - August 27, 2008 - Uncategorized

This is a fantastic film documenting the kind hearts of a few people who face up to factory farming, and rescue downed cows, trashed chicks, featherless chickens, and restore them to health at their farm sanctuary. A must watch for every human. Thanks ‘Tribe of Heart Productions’ for this great documentary.

Heaven on Earth is Made of What? - June 29, 2008 - Uncategorized

The spirit of the future, dealing with climate change, as written by “Dors” in her comment on an Australian online newspaper article about global warming. I like to envision a future not in terms of what we’ll have to give up, but in terms of what we could gain. I’m gaining a healthier body now […]

A World About to Come of Age! - June 24, 2008 - Uncategorized

Happy birthday! I hope you turn up for the party. We got through the teens with a few bad habits – the question for the next years is: “will we be able to get over it and make a future worth looking at?”

Freedom of Religion (from Race and Nation) - June 19, 2008 - Uncategorized

Freedom of Religion is an important principle, because it is still hard to achieve in some places where religion is a considered part of the social fabric. The purpose of religion of course is not social cohesion or to define a nation. It is spiritual enlightenment, which will produce socially responsible people (thus a diverse […]

Why Does God Let Us Suffer? - - Uncategorized

This is an often repeated question. If there were no purpose in life except enjoyment, then maybe God would intervene. What is suffering anyway? We think pain and disease are the worst. Yet some healthy people live miserable lives while some terminally ill people live happily. So there must be something else besides this physical […]

Peace Starts… in the Kitchen - June 17, 2008 - Uncategorized

I’m looking over at the BBC blog for their program Newsnight. One comment, nestled among many, has revealed to me the ultimate problem with our civilization. The blog’s topic and first paragraph was: “The best solution would be for us all to become vegetarians”. So suggested the head of the UN climate agency, Yvo de […]

IQ, NQ and God or Not God. - June 13, 2008 - Uncategorized

There’s been a few feathers ruffled in the last few days about the research of Richard Lynn that links IQ to atheism. Trust an intellectual to assume that intellectualism is the bees knees. I’m not arguing the statistics on the link – I’m sure it’s true. I’s just that “intelligence” doesn’t count for that much. […]

A Cow Cries at Slaughter - June 4, 2008 - Uncategorized

Warning: this post portrays naked reality There was no shaking or painful spasm as this image was taken – moments after she was shot by the bolt gun. There was just sadness. The cow cried and slid down the chute to be hung by a leg and ripped to pieces. Tears are shed, presumably for […]

Rock: “Animal Sentience” by alextababa - May 28, 2008 - Uncategorized

OK – I wrote and produced this track about a year ago in an all night session on the front deck – with a guitar and a laptop. For a loud song – it’s funny that the whole house was sleeping and no one knew I was making rock! MP3 This song expresses my angst […]

Left or Right? - December 29, 2007 - Uncategorized

No… not the ideology you’re so sick of… this time it’s brain hemispheres! Back in September the Sunday Times “PerthNow” site included an article with a picture that tells you which side of your brain is in control, and how that relates to your state of mind. I won’t give it away beacuse I imagine […]

Compassion for life and environment is constitutional in India! - December 20, 2007 - Uncategorized

I am particularly impressed with the vow to not engage in modern scientific (cruel and environmentally devastating) agriculture. Article 48 states: “The State shall endeavor or organize agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter of cows and […]

Kowledge, Ideology, Action - December 6, 2007 - Uncategorized

Do we need to know anything to make a difference? This website provides you with no knowledge. I won’t tell you who’s right and who’s wrong. I won’t point you to other people’s opinions. I won’t tell you what happened. It could be that knowledge itself is behind the undesirable aspects of our world. It […]

Virtual wars and your child’s future this christmas - October 25, 2007 - Uncategorized

Here’s something to think about this Christmas, when many of your children will be begging you for the latest computer game titles such as World in Conflict or Crysis. These are a new generation of superbly realistic experiences of military conflict. In one sense they are safe, because no one is actually harmed, yet in […]

Improve the Self and peace will follow - February 12, 2007 - Uncategorized

Strangely, she looked to me like the girl in my dreams when I was just a little kid… but the words she spoke verified everything I have ever thought about the world. It’s a funny feeling, unexpected, but a good one. Here they are: (This video is available for streaming or download from http://www.godsdirectcontact.org.tw/tv/english/tv250.htm). “When […]
