Oh take me back to Turimetta
To the sanctuary of sea and stone.
Let’s play together at Turimetta,
Unlock those secrets yet unknown.

Take me back to Turimetta
To marvel at the moon and stars.
Let’s return again to Turimetta
For a hot stone massage.

I miss our time at Turimetta
In sunshine, rain or stormy weather.
When troubles fade away
And the song of life fills our day.
As we play.

So take me back to Turimetta
To gaze at the rocks of ambiguity.
Let’s go together to Turimetta,
We’ll drift on down the magic river out to sea.

We forget the future at Turimetta,
Where imagination roams free.
The moment is ours to keep forever,
Remember that day at Turimetta?

Oh take me back to Turimetta
To that sanctuary of sea and stone.
Let’s bathe together at Turimetta
And feel the pure love between us show.
As we grow.

Prison of the mind: Are you ready to escape?

The Time is NowHave you ever woken up with a sink hole feeling?

I find myself at the bottom of a deep dark pit today. I have been teetering over the edge for a lifetime and it has taken everything in me not to fall. But this morning I couldn’t hold on any longer…so I finally let go and sank.

The prison of the mind

The alarm bells were always there from an early age, but as I grew older, I became more adept at turning down the volume, until eventually they simply faded away into the background.

That was when the amnesia of self really began. That’s when the present moment became a thing of the past and the intangible future became my focus. That was when I relinquished control over my existence to invisible forces…those infamous mind shackles locked me up in a labyrinth that I couldn’t find my way out of.

Doubt and uncertainty became the sinister agents of my fate. My destiny felt doomed because it was already preconditioned towards disaster. It was like witnessing a train crash occur right before my eyes and there was nothing I could do to stop it.

I was led in every direction except the right one. I spent my youth screaming ‘Fuck You’ to everything and everyone in society. I sought to hurt rather than be hurt. I tried to numb the confusion rather than feel anything at all. I gave up trying out of an utter fear of failure. After all, I was still in that lonely maze. Cynicism had become my best friend.

Then I went to the opposite extreme, but the delusion only grew stronger. I accepted that life is crap, it’s always going to be crap, and there’s nothing I can do to really change it. I mean, if you can’t beat it, you’ve got to become part of it, right? And so I did.

I surrendered. I subscribed. I conformed. I competed. On the outside, I did everything that you’re supposed to do. I got my good grades at school, I got my first grade honours at university, and thereafter worked incredibly hard to become ‘successful‘ in the eyes of society. I went with the grain and it consumed me entirely. On the inside, I was still screaming. Continue reading Prison of the mind: Are you ready to escape?

New Year’s Resolutions 2015

Life is just too short to waste. Nobody knows when it will be taken away so better to live without regret, better to try your best than not, better to blindly believe in the good instead of accepting that it’s all bad, better to know and like yourself rather than a version created solely out of fear that you were never (and won’t ever be) good enough, better to live each day as if it were indeed your last without fear, without anger, without hate, without chaos, frustration or confusion….

New year’s resolutions 2015:
1. Be myself and let others see Me
2. Let go of all learned negative thoughts, behaviours, habits, words and deeds for they don’t belong to me
3. Live in the present
4. Feel the joy of gentleness and contentment
in every moment
5. Smile with my eyes and heart
6. Share the positive Truth
7. Laugh and play everyday

Now I Know

I dropped the penny
And I broke the glass,
I guess I never really listened in class.
I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I didn’t want it to come true,
I didn’t want to be just like you.

I spent my time breaking all the rules,
I was not a fool, I was just afraid.
But no one knew, they could not see me,
I was not OK,
I couldn’t take the madness of it all,
I was scared to fall.

***********************************************

Confusion and chaos was the name of the game,
I didn’t want to be just the same.
I slowed it down, I hurried up,
It was not enough.
I tried to be something outside of me,
I didn’t know, it wasn’t clear,
I had the fear.

Just to be,
It was not enough,
Over time,
The conditioning had changed my mind.
I forgot what it was all about,
This crazy world had me turned inside out.

I thought if I could just meet a sage,
Who could teach me how to save me from myself.
If I could change, my maze-like mind, negative rhymes,
Everything feeling so out of time.

So I slowed it down,
I took a step back,
I slowly learned how to take a look
At the craziness of my world,
There was a way that I could have it all.

To save myself, from myself,
Life wasn’t really the mess I thought it was.
All I had to do was look inside.
Realise, I am my Child.

I can Feel,
I am anew.
I can Feel,
And that is True.
I can Feel,
It is all I need.
I can Feel,
I know the Truth.

The Earth Is A Pod

The Earth is a pod
And we are its pea-ple,
Like grains of sand
In a vast desert land.
Different colours, shapes and sizes
Each one unique in quality and character.

When aligned hand in hand
A grander scene transpires,
Shifting and flowing on a fair wind,
Alight under stars, the moon and our kind sun.
Mere specks in a universe of possibility
On a journey towards an oasis of Truth.

Me and You

I like you.
You are my best friend.
We’ve known each other since time began.

No-one knows
What we’ve been through,
You are Me
And I am You.

When the darkness calls
And the light fades,
Don’t you fret dear
It’ll be OK.

Take my hand,
Let’s walk tall together,
On sunny days
Or in stormy weather.

When the darkness calls
And the light fades,
Don’t you fret dear
It’ll be OK.

No-one knows
What we’ve been through,
You are Me
And I am You.

You are Me
And I am You…

Re-Mind

If difficulty reigns
In quieting the brain,
Keep standing back
Until clarity is gained.
Many miles I may travel
In stepping back past the muddle,
Until laughter is felt and heard within.

Wave Watchers

To be enchanted and enamoured by waves is a tell-tale symptom of the surfer’s condition…

Waves are essentially pulses of unfathomable energy transmuted from the heavens to the ocean by the power of sustained winds and storm systems. Travelling thousands of miles across the deep blue, this energy is often subtle and unremarkable, that is until it finally approaches a coastline, and first begins to drag along the rising seabed below.

The Common Starling

I understood your call today,
It was an imitation of life.
Even the chorus was not your own,
Just another stanza of defence,
A flawless instrumental, coded without contest.
But I don’t blame, I don’t accuse,
It’s not your fault you were born to lose…

Your gift of mimicry so dear
When existence predicates entirely on fear,
None of it your own,
A universal inheritance
From friend to foe.
But I don’t blame, I don’t accuse,
It’s not your fault you were born to lose…

The only songs in your repertoire
Are renditions of resemblance.
The rest a prized secret
What matters most is artifice, a self-protective version
Through that peculiar power of suggestion.
But I don’t blame, I don’t accuse
It’s not your fault you were born to lose…

The trickery of appearance
Is an age-old competition,
A survival strategy modelled on blatant plagiarism,
Valued solely through the complexity of camouflage            To make just that right impression and be left in company… Alone.
But I don’t blame, I don’t accuse
It’s not your fault you were born to lose…

So you prevent damage and death to the lost nest,
Keeping the signature of the common starling secret.
Something performed out of necessity
When nothing more could be sung in society,
Except the ones already hummed.
But I don’t blame, I don’t accuse,
It’s not your fault you were born to lose…
