revolution 999

August 5, 2009

There is so much fear around at the moment. Swine crunch, credit flu, the proposed reforms to home education laws, Codex Alimentarius, the closing of the Big Green Gathering, if it’s not one thing it’s sure to be another. A lot of people I know are worried, and asking what can we do?

 

Can I point out something really obvious here?

 

There’s not very many of them. Yes, they are evil @$*!ers and yes they do have a very sinister agenda and yes they do currently hold most of the power.

 

But someone told me this quote recently, and I can’t remember now who told me and where it was from. It was about how humanity is made up of 70 % of followers, people who just go along with the status quo. Then there’s the 20 %, which is us, the lightworkers, the people who actively work against the currents of the mass consciousness in the hope of change. And there’s the 10% who seek to control the masses for their own ends.

 

So if we just think of ourselves as 20%, we feel small, we feel as if we are the minority. But if we can wake that sleeping majority up to the reality of the situation on this planet then suddenly we become the 90% and the 10% are left powerless.

 

And if we are looking at tipping points, we only have to wake up 35 % of the sleeping majority to have the balance of power – 55 %.

 

Why have they got so many people so scared? Because we have been bullied and oppressed for so long, we’ve forgotten another way is possible. People have come to believe in their impotence because those are the stories we are fed by the media, that’s what they want us to believe. We are weak, they are strong. What could we possibly do?

 

So, at the risk of pointing out the obvious, let me say it again. There’s not that many of them. There’s way more people on the planet now who are actively working for peace than there’s ever been in the whole history of time. Stop believing in their lies. Stop working for their system. Together, we are powerful, we have all the answers.

 

Money and time are the greatest weapons they use against us, to entrap us, ensnare us in their ways of doing things. We don’t need their money, we’ll be happier without it, it’s a system which is based on division and a system which only the bullies and the greedy can win. Capitalism is sick, in all senses of the word.

 

Gregorian time is an artificial construct which pits us against the natural rhythms of the universe. It disconnects us and massively disempowers us. Step away from the 9-5 and feel the liberation.

 

Their other weapon is death. They scare us with visions of military regimes and police states and worldwide pandemics. But death is nothing to fear. In death we return to the light. And the light will always be stronger.

 

In the Masaru Emoto book Messages from Water, he discovers that the most ugly distorted patterns occur in the water crystals when they are ignored. Saying I hate you, playing heavy metal music, coming from New York taps – nothing is so destructive as just plain lack of attention.

 

They love it when we start banging on about conspiracy theories and chemtrails and new world order. They‘re like the naughty child, thriving on negative attention, feeding off the fear they create.

 

So third time lucky. There’s not that many of them. Let’s just stop giving them any attention, stop believing in their sad little stories which will never come true, because there’s too many of us who are not prepared to let them get away with it. We create our reality, remember? So let’s stop believing that they’ve even got a chance. And they haven’t.

 

Let’s focus on having fun. Throw a party, grow your garden, sing a song, make a cake, graffiti the streets with messages of hope and positivity. That’s always far more effective than actually caring about their unevolved ways.

camp bestival…the best festival

August 1, 2009

DSC02064 apparently it was sold out which is 10,000 adults, but children were free & unlimited so we R talking 10,000 adults & 20 or 30,000 children!

DSC02204

the highlight was meeting spongebob in bikini bottom

DSC02228

& also all the little girls rocking my look. tutus evrywhere! neon stripy odd socks were the fashion statement 2 make. yesss! a whole generation of little miss magics. the future is safe in their hands.

DSC02411

this is 1 of my favrite pics. grown man dressed as elephant. almost certainly borne out of an imagination fuelled by substance experimentation. child wants 2 dance with elephant & is highly entertained. the line between being a reckless irresponsible hedonist & a caring giving community member is suddenly so fine as 2 have been obliterated.

DSC02320

it was fun all the way.

DSC02396

kaboom indeed.

more abt the music later, but my highlight was possibly dancing 2 dizzee in the silent disco.

have i changed?

DSC00343

sometimes its hard 2 put my life in2 words which is why i wanted 2 attempt here 2 put it in2 pictures. “magic” 4 me is an easy word 2 summarise the daily insights, interactions & serendipities which cause me 2 feel that life is an inherently joyous  & wondrous experience. its the odd moments, the tiny incidences which form the fabric of our days that make me believe life is a gift handed 2 us by a loving & beneficent creator.

DSC08749

i cant make my life make sense easily with words. as i go from hiphop 2 housework via tahini & tattoos, the worlds i travel thru seem disconnected, randomly thrust 2gether in a sequence which defies logic. 

DSC02160

but of course flying lotus & fo ti root, red mutha & reishi tea, do all have a connecting thread, & that is my love 4 them all.

DSC03351

we R the slash slash slash generation. not happy with labels, we usually need at least 3 (eg writer/mother/dancer). we can & we do do everything we believe we can. maybe my slashes R more random than most. but that doesnt make them any less real or less heartfelt.

DSC05029

my pictures R a testament 2 this blessing we call humanity.

DSC00830

they R a celebration of the diversity of a life lived outside the box.

DSC07943

i share them in the hope that they serve as an affirmation 4 us all that the good life is found in friends, family, food & music.

DSC06956

all we need is a heart that bursts with love & a mind that trusts fully in the magic & infinity is ours.
