The Paradox of Truth

The Paradox of Truth

Hello how are you? I came across this website some time ago and it blew me away – Caroline Myss and the Chakra energy fields in your body. There are seven major Chakras and they align with the Seven Sacraments and the seven colours of the rainbow and seven days of the week. Have a read and change your life! https://www.myss.com/chakras/. What reminded me of this today was an email I got from Caroline suggesting that when you come across…

Find Your Joy

Find Your Joy

Good morning, or afternoon or whatever! Here’s a small gift I received from a great friend many moons ago in a place called the School of Philosophy. T’was a great place where I learned many things and received many valuable and precious gifts for living life and I wanted to share one of them with you today simply because it has done so much for me I had to pass it on! I hope you get as much from it…

Feckiddy Feckiddy Feck

Feckiddy Feckiddy Feck

Just when you thought you had it all figured out somebody upped and changed all the rules! That’s the way it feels sometimes! Your life repeats its patterns until you change the way you act. They say! How simple, and yet I’m surprised every time, by my repeating shape! I fall asleep and react before I get a chance to respond! Too late! “Feckiddy feckiddy feck”! I’m like a cork bobbing up and down in the sea! Today is a good…

Working in the Dark

Working in the Dark

Petrafied Journal – 2020-03-09 Sometimes you get it wrong not because you don’t know but because you’re working in the dark. Sometimes you just have to laugh for if you don’t you could curl up and die and where would you be then? Eh! Sometimes, they say, all you need to do, is remember that there’s a light switch somewhere, that will render all your seemingly ‘real shadows’ … gone! Knowing that the light is there, and a will to…

World of Duality

World of Duality

I can see why I just plain ordinary run away from life in fear of being hurt! I’m afraid to engage lest that should make it worse! I was sent away to boarding school as a boy for being too much trouble and my every decision since, has been shaped by that. There are other defining moments in my life like the time I stood up to ‘those bullies’ in school’. I would prefer that they might have been the…

Beyond the greasy grip of money

Beyond the greasy grip of money

What is money anyway? We all use it and we all depend on it and we all talk incessantly about it but which one of us actually understands what it is? We forever make statements like “That’s all very well but who’s going to pay for it?” We are completely consumed by its ‘lob-sided power’. Money differentiates us. We like that! And so, we should! Or at least we should in a healthy competitive, sporting sort of a way! Just…

A Whole New World

A Whole New World

COVID19 will be defeated because everybody is pulling together in an unprecedented time! Except for “The Banks”, it would seem! We bailed them out of a 64B Euro hole ten years ago but now they want to charge interest on stalled mortgage payments during this pandemic!  Are they blind? Can they not see that real money is the power of people pulling together! Or do they just choose mean-hearted-money over people every time? Everybody is pulling together to ‘flatten the…

Bill Gates on COVID19

Bill Gates on COVID19

I just read a What’s App text outlining Bill Gates’s views on COVID19. It captivated me. I was inspired to make this short video commenting on the 14 ‘heart-lifting’ points he makes. Obviously COVID19 is a foe rather than a friend but nonetheless, does it have a message for us? One that might help us, as a friend might, despite the havoc it’s wreaking? I hope you enjoy watching my video and get as much from the content as I…

Ode to Coumeenole

Ode to Coumeenole

In 2008 and 2009, I spent two full winters writing in my ‘frillies’, in Murroe, County Limerick and the words that came, screamed out from somewhere deep inside. They had a life of their own. Every night, I sat on my bed (in my best nightie of course), furiously typing until finally, it was done. I didn’t write ‘Ode to Coumeenole” as much as I penned it if you know what I mean. It came through me with its own…
