This is Hell


This is Hell, Hell on Earth, am I the only one to have noticed? We all try to believe this place could be nice, can be fun, is, sometimes beautiful, but deep, deep in our hearts we all carry the various hurts this life in Hell has inflicted upon us. We grasp at fleeting moments of joy to carry us through, and sometimes it’s nearly enough.

One of the first gifts bestowed to us as humans is the gift of Empathy, to feel and care for the feelings of our fellow man, not only pain and sorrow, but also peace, joy and happiness. Empathy can be a true blessing, I love to share a smile, with a new mother, an exasperated traveller or a sexy barman, sometimes it’s nearly enough.

Of course we are tricked, betrayed and confused, sometimes it’s so hard to see what is true and what is right most of us just duck our heads down and live on auto pilot for a while. We laugh and love and cherish our humanity and pretend others are not dying in our name, that children are not starving and dying for our monetary system and that democracy gives us any choice what so ever, sometimes it’s nearly enough.

When the Elders first began to notice the terrible plot that was being hatched and the pain and suffering being inflicted on humanity by evil, wicked people who wanted all the power and all the money but only so they could be cruel to others they stopped gentle, innocent souls coming through, we others who had already lived and died came here more often, we became old souls but knew we were protecting our gentler kinder brothers and sisters, sometimes it was nearly enough.

However we all need to come here, to gain the use of a body, to learn out mortal lessons. We tried hard to turn life around, we were hung, burned, tortured, betrayed we tried so hard not to forget what we had learned, left reminders for ourselves so that we could remember, look and remember. Mother Mary Ann Damnable even turned her body to stone so she would remember. Mother Damnable at the World’s End was carried away by her Eternal Love, she sent two silver coins to me in case I need to pay the ferryman. Sometimes remembering is nearly enough.

Through the ages we generally managed to keep people safe, it has only been in the past hundred years or so that murder on such a scale has been perfected, The Evil men have had two millennia to perfect their skills, their quest for mundane power has left them parched, their souls shrivelled, withered and dry, they thirst for blood, life blood or economies blood, that filthy Lucre, the only deity they truly worship, sometimes money is nearly enough for them.

Their thirst for money has brought the World to her knees, they raped and despoiled, stole her treasures, have left her cold and hungry. Polluted her water, soiled the very air we must breath. They dreamed that one day all their money would buy them an escape, a spaceship, a freezer a bunker in the desert. All that money and not an iota of sense, this world is all there is. Different realms, Heaven, Hell, Purgetary, Fairy Realms, Demon Realms, The Realms of the Gods, but it’s all here, right here.

This Hell that has been created in this realm by mortal man is destructive, very destructive, the events occurring here have come to the attention of other realms, they all know that the World is suffering and are returning, some are mad as hell. The Pact has been called, the Puppies for Peace released. Dragons are circling, The Gods await. War is declared It’s Armaggedon time, again. Time to suspend disbelief. Time to be brave and true and trust it will be enough.

I’m not sure what happens now, but I do know it will require, from us, non violent direct action, this is the only way to ensure a true victory, to ensure we do not descend into evil, and to ensure we each take our actions to the limit of our own endurance. There will be help, guides, empaths. We all need to fly, to be free. None but ourselves can free our minds, and now, we must.

We all left reminders for ourselves, it’s time to look around and remember, don’t be afraid, if you feel fear it probably means you are close, very close to remembering, relax and trust there will always be people to help you through, for although we stand alone, we hang together. ~ Always.

Our Night On The Tiles


“Hail and Well Met” on the Yes, Yes game
“Give us your names.” They spell them plain
Then they swear, and then they fear
“Can’t you understand us?” “We make it clear”

“There’s this band, they play by the book
Begin by Invocation wanna come look?”
On the Tube we giggled as the Voodoo man sang
He opened our ears with a clatter and a clang.

In the club we meet with The Hellfire band
By Invocation, and with intention unplanned
As they play, by Magic, we know every word
The energies we raise thus, we duly observe.

He bowed and he smiled as we met on the stair
Recognition? Was he mundane or bravely aware?
That Demon he knew me, we felt for sure
But “Where and When? Did we, before?”

The dark man quipped as he counted the score
“You share one woman whilst I have four!”
But “What about you?” “What about me?”
“How would you like to be my number Three?”

Like Stray Cats down the alley we three paced
And chuckled and laughed at the darkness we faced
The dangers we knew and those yet to come
We wondered and marvelled at what we’d become.

You remembered at need another band
Who play the tunes from a faraway land
To labour for Love a blessing and a joy
Blessed, indeed, as a man and as a boy.

We walked, at last, into the night
Our souls are free, to life we hold tight.
We love life and we love London Town
We smile as I smooth my hair and my gown.

When I left you I could not look back,
The glow in your eyes would make me backtrack
So we hug as we part at the tube station gate
Smile a merry smile and promise “Laters Mate.”

Invictus


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
~
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
~
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
~
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
~

by William Ernest Henley; 1849-1903

Truth


I listen for Truth
For truth speaks softly
It is not boastful nor proud
Truth whispers low
Solemn quiet
It wraps around
Like Smoke
Subtle and free
Truth Knows no Boundaries
No limits Truth Speaks
From within
Not without
It floatsIn the spaces
Of dreams
It is not angry or vengeful
Truth simply is
It cannotBe hidden
Nor disguised Truth
Shines Like iridescent Dew
It rests Within Your heart
Of hearts Truth
Unchanged Living
The promise
As it was so
It shallBe

Crys The Tears

Global ecosystems 'face collapse'



Current global consumption levels could result in a large-scale ecosystem collapse by the middle of the century, environmental group WWF has warned.

The group's biannual Living Planet Report said the natural world was being degraded "at a rate unprecedented in human history".

Terrestrial species had declined by 31% between 1970-2003, the findings showed.
The loss was a result of resources being consumed faster than the planet could replace them, the authors said.

They added that if the world's population shared the UK's lifestyle, three planets would be needed to support their needs.

Paul King, WWF director of campaigns, said the world was running up a "serious ecological debt".

"It is time to make some vital choices to enable people to enjoy a one planet lifestyle," he said.
"The cities, power plants and homes we build today will either lock society into damaging over-consumption beyond our lifetimes, or begin to propel this and future generations towards sustainable one planet living."

The report, co-produced by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and the Global Footprint Network, is based on data from two indicators:

Living Planet Index - assesses the health of the planet's ecosystems
Ecological Footprint - measures human demand on the natural world

The Living Planet Index tracked the population of 1,313 vertebrate species of fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals from around the world.

Humans are placing ever greater demands on natural resources (WWF-Canon/Jurgen Freund)
It found that these species had declined by about 30% since 1970, suggesting that natural ecosystems were being degraded at an unprecedented rate.

The Ecological Footprint measured the amount of biologically productive land and water to meet the demand for food, timber, shelter, and absorb the pollution from human activity.

The report concluded that the global footprint exceeded the earth's biocapacity by 25% in 2003, which meant that the Earth could no longer keep up with the demands being placed upon it.

'Large-scale collapse'

One of the report's editors, Jonathan Loh from the Zoological Society of London, said: "[It] is a stark indication of the rapid and ongoing loss of biodiversity worldwide.

"Populations of species in terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems have declined by more than 30% since 1970," he added.

"In the tropics the declines are even more dramatic, as natural resources are being intensively exploited for human use."

The report outlined five scenarios based on the data from the two indicators, ranging from "business as usual" to "transition to a sustainable society".

Under the "business as usual" scenario, the authors projected that to meet the demand for resources in 2050 would be twice as much as what the Earth could provide.

They warned: "At this level of ecological deficit, exhaustion of ecological assets and large-scale ecosystem collapse become increasingly likely."

To deliver a shift towards a "sustainable society" scenario would require "significant action now" on issues such as energy generation, transport and housing.

The latest Living Planet Report is the sixth in a series of publications which began in 1998.
