An Exercise in Journeys Ending

One Journey Ends, Another One Begins, Such is Eternal Healing

I Am That, I Am

I Am That, I Am

Its a gloriously crisp and sunny day in the heart of the Scottish Borders today and nature is singing, “spring is on its way”. That said; I too am feeling spring like for I know that I’m walking away from a thirty year dark winter. Indeed the end of a most dramatic, traumatic and life changing healing journey, to be replaced by a new healing, learning and clearing journey. That said and just over 25 years ago amidst my own and seemingly insurmountable darkness, I sat and chatted with my mentor of that time chief petty officer SB. A remarkable man who’d transformed his own inner knowings. Setting the scene; we met to discuss how I was doing after a period of deep introspection the result of his guidance on matters relating to self liberation and supportive reading. Therein; SB enquired where I was now at? My reply; “I’m sitting on a train inside a sleepy little train station, I have no idea where I’m going but I’m excited by the prospect of the journey that’s about to unfold”. Little did I know then that that journey would thrust me into the alchemistic fires of calcination, dissolution, separation, conjunction, fermentation, distillation and coagulation consuming almost 80% of my current mortality. Year after year breaking me down and stripping away that which did not serve my higher self. Which in essence was the most painful and brutalising nihilism journey that I could possibly undertake. All part of my own gut wrenching hero’s journey, a journey which frankly changed all things and forever, for when all things change, we change with them. Indeed that very point when I truly understood self love, selfless love and unconditional love and the I am that I am. That very point where the glow of my soul, eclipsed all my mortal woes and they all fell away like autumn leaves in a stiff breeze. Indeed that point where I truly understood and wholeheartedly acknowledged for the first time in my mortality, that I am who I am not because of all the suffering and pain I’ve endured. But because I’m an instinctive and courageous; multidimensional thinker and above all things; a divine and timeless spiritual being as we all are too.

The Alchemist, Shaman and Shamanic Self Healer Within

Many years on and with much personal insight, wisdom and understanding gathered along the way, I realised several months ago that my current healing journey was coming to an end and that I was on the cusp of a brand new healing journey. Perhaps that’s why I committed to writing my numerous “an exercise in – posts”, all part of documenting my own personal healing and releasing, who knows? All I know is that when spirit nudges resistance is futile and I’ve embraced that energetic flow wholeheartedly and for some considerable time now. That said and earlier this week I was having a catch up with my shamanic mentor and as ever we discussed that most pertinent to my healing and clearing. Therein and one of the things we discussed was that I felt no inclination to write anymore. Smiling she replied; “that’s very normal for soul journeys like yours, for often I’ve observed that those old souls committed to mastering the magician and warrior that resides deep within them, all to often and for no apparent reason simply evaporate into the ether”. Followed by; “and that’s really alright Barry, for as you’ve already indicated that journey is over”. Now of course and yes as my mentor stated it really is alright, but for me, well I felt sort of uneasy with the apparent lack of closure, because I believe closure always brings with it greater overall healing and healing is the greatest gift on this planet.

Therein and with that state of unease, perhaps heightened by a stream of email enquiries in recent weeks asking; “why no writing and am I okay?” I was compelled to write this “journeys ending” post today. For it was important that I articulated that all was indeed well and that the absence of new posts simply reflected my current journeys ending. Therein its important that I articulate that I won’t be writing anymore posts for this blog albeit the blog will remain active and there’s a very real possibility that I will refine certain posts. Why no more posts my followers and readers may rightfully ask?

Well my Raphael’s Legacy healing journey has reached its conclusion and I believe that all future writings and presentations will take on subtly different topics and forms too. That said; as and when the timing is right I will post a link below to any new blog or indeed YouTube presentations that I create in the coming months and years.

In the interim period I’d like to extend my grateful thanks to all My Raphael’s Legacy blog readers and followers one and all for the warmth of your company during my often testing journey. Namaste

In Closing; A Little Bit of Healing Wisdom, Food For Ones Soul

Self Love is Self Acceptance

Healing is Self Love

I’ve been told many times in this my current mortality that; “I can’t do this and I shouldn’t do that and above all things there’s nothing that “they” can do to help me”. Nevertheless and time after time amidst my unrelenting darkness I ignored such complete and utter nonsense, for not to do so would have resulted in my stagnation and premature expiry. Therein; its important to note that we alone ultimately choose just how we will live out our mortality. We can choose to stay asleep and grub around in the darkness, or we can reach for the light and evolve. Well hard though it’s often been I’ve always reached for the light, for my soul craved healing and the grace in vibrational alignment, for alignment is the god force within all. Therein; moving back into vibrational alignment is the process of healing ones body, clearing ones mind and freeing ones soul. A sublimely eloquent and synergistic coming together, with one central goal; “to remove from ones being all forms of dis-ease”. In essence a simple, yet timeless alchemistic process, that really has no beginnings and certainly no endings, for we are eternal, we are one and anything and everything.

Amen

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

An Exercise in Pain & Soul Growth

It’s Easy To Laugh Sometimes, When The Wish and Question are So Sincere

Healing Begins With Self Love

Self Alchemy is Healing of the Soul

I’m frequently informed by those I interact with that they wish that they were more spiritual, followed by; “how do I achieve that?” I on my part frequently burst into laughter and my retort is simple; “be very careful what you wish for because spiritual growth can be painful”. My reply however is often greeted by either a look of horror or indeed consternation because as we all know, we mortals really don’t do painful or do we? Well I do, in fact I’ve done pain to abundance but that’s not because I like pain, I don’t, pain is simply an innate aspect of our eternal desire to either stagnate or evolve. That said; my desire has always been to evolve for in breaking down the old we are able to build anew. At which point we’re truly able to revel in our timeless and owe-inspiring potential. Not an easy process yet a process that changes all things and forever and below is a chapter from my own healing journey which demonstrates that point most graphically i.e. transforming my muddy waters into liquid gold. However and to set the scene; several millenniums ago when I worked as an asset strategist, there was a time when I turned down an incredibly lucrative and long term role to take up a short term interim role lacking in any value adding liquidity. Why did I do that you may ask? Well I felt the latter role would be the better role for my longer term career and so was worth a degree of fiscal sacrifice. Hilarious now and in hindsight, for what I didn’t know then was that not only would that role effectively end my old career, but it would also play its part in jettisoning me into the most painful soul growth I’d experienced for some time.

The Insanity & Betrayal That Distilled My Muddy Waters into Liquid Gold

Self Love is Healing

Self Love is Healing

I walked into a business screaming about the need for change yet a business floundering at the same time in a sea of psychotic and game playing inertia. On day one I discovered and to my horror that the guy I reported into whilst reportedly well educated was a complete incompetent and both the stooge and puppet of much darker agendas. To make matters worse it quickly transpired that I had committed to working in a highly toxic and psychotic environment consisting of the; “US – the business identity”, the “THEM – a sociopathic consulting firm out to milk the “US” for all they were worth” and of course “ME all alone”. By day three I’d completely detached from the puppet because I found out very quickly that he wasn’t in the least bit interested in doing the right things, in fact, everything seemed beyond his technical grasp and business change understandings. For he was a lightweight and simply a self prostituting pawn. By day five and feeling incredibly exposed I endeavoured to create a “WE” within all the madness. In essence a sanity team which consisted of the four key players from within the “US” who’d been chosen to deliver the change programme with my support. Well very quickly one of the potential “WE” made his agenda clear and he was sticking close to the puppet and also to the psychotic power that existed within the “US and THEM”. Another of the potential “WE” whilst outwardly presenting a charismatic front was actually a guy racked with tremendous self doubt and fear. Therein; he too made it crystal clear that whilst he was happy to play at being a “WE” the only thing that really mattered to him was getting that which best served his personal needs. Net result; he wasn’t even remotely interested in supporting or helping anyone else or indeed diluting his boundaries or perceived needs, for like all Machiavellians, he was highly accomplished at playing the game and using others. In essence a guy very well versed in sitting on the proverbial fence, whilst never ever missing a meal. The two remaining and most vulnerable “US” jumped at the opportunity of becoming the “WE” with me, creating our own little point of sanity within all the madness. Therein and as the weeks unfolded, I guided, mentored and protected the two “WE” from the rabid psychosis of the utterly unscrupulous and treacherous “THEM” and of course the paranoia of the “US machine”. My gracious reward for that at the point the two “WE” were no longer vulnerable was for them both to morph back into the sickeningly amoral and self serving energetic bacteria that they’d always been. Therein; aligning themselves with all the self serving madness of the; “US, THEM and PUPPET” psychosis and to hell with “ME”. In doing so proactively exiling me to the wilderness of whispers, sniggers and innuendo, there to complete my final acts and tasks alone. Before the higher ranking of the two former “WE” instructed his puppet “WE” to put me to the sword. In essence a brutal betrayal lacking in any form of morality, sensitivity or decency. A truly harrowing mortal experience and for a whole host of reasons. For I felt truly violated, sodomised and raped, therein; experiencing every conceivable treacherous energetic assault upon my being. Each one of those horrendous insults and all in their sum simply rocking me and my understandings to the core of my foundations. Therein and such was the level of deceit and the psychosis that I’d some how opened myself up to and for, that I was compelled to re-evaluate my entire being. A tsunami of a process which smashed down my tower into unrecognisable pieces, in its wake destroying each and everyone of all my inherited and treasured love relationships. Thrusting me bewildered, angry and completely alone into a baron landscape to some how find my way back home, a process that was one of my greatest periods of soul growth in recent times. A truly powerful healing journey that changed my sense of being and all things and forever, for at that time I had a choice; do I roll over and give up or do I heal and accept my remembering. Well I chose healing and of course my eternal remembering because that is my journey and my journey is one of soul growth. A truly profound and life changing spiritual transition all part of my own alchemistic healing journey which saw me undergo in line with hermetic principles so above, so below; Calcination, Dissolution, Separation, Conjunction, Fermentation, Distillation and Coagulation. Indeed a sublimely eloquent and ancient process wisdom that is wonderfully explained and in great detail too by the Luxor Medias video below. Namaste

Authors Concluding Notes

Healing is Self Love

Love is All

If ever there was a better example of the pain in my healing journey the one above simply eclipses all before it. For it came on the back of a very long battle for my life, yet a point where my domestications were taking centre stage again and I felt that I was on the right track once more. I guess that’s why my soul implored me to take that dreadfully painful journey and utterly treacherous and psychotic role. For it knew that only in smashing my tower to the ground, could I truly awaken and commit to and therein embrace my full potential. Such that and in embarking upon that journey better soul am I for only in the pain of the destruction of my domestications was I set free. Now that doesn’t mean that the shadows of that journey don’t rise up from time to time and fill me in the moment with both sadness and anger, they do. However such has been my healing journey that they’re quickly eclipsed by my own innate sense of self love in and of the grace of leaving such insanity well and truly behind me. For my way became the way of the shaman, an alchemistic process as old as time itself designed to transform all my muddy waters into resplendent liquid gold. And as for the other players who performed such exceptional roles in my crisis and very painful call to heal? Well they all got what they wanted and none of what they clearly needed, but they will, all in good time, for that is the grace in and of the law of attraction. That said; its an extraordinary vibration that point when we reach the end of a painful healing journey. For the pain is still there attempting to tear strips from our soul, but it doesn’t hurt anymore and as for our beliefs, our truths and of course all of our trusts that were shattered during our healing process. Well they’re eloquently pulverised into ultra fine dust that is scattered before us, creating a carpet upon which to rest our weary bones. Third eye wide open staring into the stillness that is; oneness and knowing. Namaste

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

An Exercise in Greater Understanding

Healing Begins With Self Love, Releasing; Greater Inner Peace

Healing is Self Love

Healing is Self Love

Well another brand new year is upon us all in what is of course a complete illusion. For all those who’ve awakened or indeed those who are in the process of awakening right now, understand, that we’re all one and eternal and that time is a complete irrelevancy. That said; I’ve been asked many times during my current mortality just what are the most powerful things I’ve learned on my own healing journey into remembering.

My reply; “well I’ve learned many things on my long healing journey and also remembered many things too, the most important of which is that I now have a clear understanding of who I really am, including the sublime grace in and of my own healing. For I am timeless like you and healing is not the product of insane, fundamentally flawed and morally bankrupt medical dogma, its much more robust, far more gracious and hence a truly liberating process. Because true healing begins with self love, is based upon sound medical science, imbues and exudes great personal understanding. Indeed its a divine process that can only culminate once the very necessary clearing of all self limiting energetic blocks from our entire being and timelines is undertaken. In essence; its a timeless and ageless [ alchemistic process ] as old as light itself. That’s precisely why I will always help or correct an enquiring soul or indeed a wise man at any stage of both theirs and my own healing journey for we understand and appreciate the grace bestowed upon our soul through the acquisition of great wisdom, for great wisdom is freedom”.

That said; “the second most important thing I’ve learned is never ever try to help or indeed correct a fool from their foolish ways, for the fool in the end always hates those who shine a light upon their foolishness. For in wisdom there is great healing and in healing there is always greater peace and greater peace begets unimaginable freedom. A state of being which the fool is far to foolish to embrace, for all fools choose to live out their foolishness amidst the baron lands of ignorance and fear. A landscape where wisdom and reason are always shunned and for good reason too, for the fools world is a world filled to overflowing with; self delusions, overt resentments and lots of poor me’s. Therein; a wiseman sees, understands and accepts the fool for what he is, for he knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool and all one can do is love, yet shun him”.

Finally and probably the most important thing that I’ve learned is that; “there are some truly dreadful and truly evil alien life forms on this planet masquerading as mortals. Life forms that are pure dark energy and lacking in any tangible aspect of light about their being. Indeed life forms that are truly insane, truly malicious, capable of the most horrendously cruel acts and who lack any form of decency. Life forms that are referred to as sociopaths by our medical world who appear completely oblivious to those evil aliens true origin. Therein; hard has been my learning around such utter monsters, yet wise am I now when I spot one from a hundred yards. Because I’ve learned and in the most brutal fashion possible that you can’t heal, can’t inspire evolution and you certainly can’t have a healthy relationship or life with or where a sociopath is present. For they are self obsessed and completely self serving, therein they have no visible vibration and are completely lacking in all that which we should care to hold dear. That’s precisely why I will remain forever committed to [ forewarning and hence forearming ] any vulnerable soul who is griped within a sociopaths grasp. For that is my way, the way of the shaman”.

Healing Begins With Self Love

Healing Begins With Self Love

Now frequently there’s a look of complete consternation on the face of my enquirers and I suspect the reason for that is that the simplicity of my candour doesn’t quit match up to their grandiose expectations of me. Yet what they don’t get and I completely understand that is that simplicity has the power to change even the most resistant of forces et al. For simplicity completely disarms the tyrannical grip of ones ego and its ones ego that truly has the power to impoverish ones mortal well-being and soul. That said; it took me the best part of 40 years to distill all the simplicity in and from all my learnings, 40 years of very necessary and yet implicitly unnecessary pain, struggle and suffering. However in breaking down the battlements of my left brain domineering ego whilst in that process destroying the facades of morally bankrupt dogma I stepped forward and with clarity and embraced my true potential. Indeed the point when all things changed and forever, for me and such was the powerful impact of my [ warrior of light ] transition upon my being. That I would implore all those struggling for answers right now, to commit to their own personal awakening, for self love begets healing and healing begets greater and greater inner peace. Namaste

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

An Exercise in Embracing Self Liberation

Trust In Your Journey & Be of Good Cheer, Your Prize is Unbridled Freedom

Self Love is Self Acceptance

Self Love is Self Acceptance

I was asked by someone recently “when do I get through all the crap Baz and start being more like you?” My initial response was to laugh out loud at both the innocent naivety and sheer absurdity of the question because that’s what I needed to do. That said I then followed that spontaneous outburst up by explaining to the enquirer that my laughter was neither a rebuke of them, nor was that a manifestation of my own arrogance. It was simply the release of that deep within me, that resonated succinctly with the enquirers own mortal consternations. The reason? Well there have been many times during my own awakening and remembering that I have certainly felt; “blimey I can’t take anymore of this, I mean, where is the ending and the beginning of the new me”. All the product of trekking for year upon year, across a truly baron landscape whilst in the process working through things that I felt that I’d cleared many years before. Over and over so my journey seems to unfolded year upon year, it’s enough to test the resolve of anyone and indeed force them to question their own sanity. The funny thing is however “albeit often no laughing matter at all” is that it’s not so unusual to experience this dilemma and why would it be anyway. Given that this very normal assault upon our ego which often creates an overwhelming sense of drudgery and consternation is all part of the timeless process of navigating the plateaus of self liberation which in truth really has no ending for we are all eternal. Thats why and whilst not nice at times, I accepted many years ago, that its best not to fight this process and much better to simply go with the flow.

Battling For The Right To Life

Battling For The Right To Life

Because that flow will take us to precisely where we need to go thereafter lifting us up and onto an even higher plateau of self awareness. For only in self awareness and of course self acceptance are we able to truly embrace the often torturous and polarising nature of our self liberation. And all because self liberation and the sense of elation and unimaginable self love that it brings with it is the divine force that frees us all from our overt and self limiting social domestications. All part of a state of being that changes all things and for ever. For he who pursues the path of wisdom understands instinctively that that is a journey into his true potential. Because only self liberation has the power to set us free from all the noise, endless chatter and of course all the pollution from our domestication. Each and all in their sum serving only to stifle and hence impoverish our overall vibration. That’s precisely why I chose to embark upon my own healing journey into freedom. Simply because; all the noise and all the chatter in the end simply bored me senseless. What’s more I knew that I was worth so much more than spending my entire mortality grubbing around in the bondage of completely manufactured and intangible fears. Systemic patriarchal fears, all the derivative of utterly insane yet overt social domestication that had absolutely nothing to do with my natural inclinations given they were at odds with my divine blueprint. Therein; all things change and we change with them, so it was, so it is and so it will always be, no if’s, no but’s and no maybes’. Indeed a shamanic way of being, sensing, seeing and feeling that set me free from that which was [ killing me ] helping me to embrace my very own self liberation. Namaste

An Exercise in Working Through Deep Hurt

Working Through The Hurt of Self Limiting Energetic Blocks & Power Loss

Shamanic Healing & Wisdom

Shamanic Healing & Wisdom

Working through our hurts, our hurts, our deep seated hurts is probably the hardest journey we’ll ever undertake as mortals. Yet the payback from that journey is probably the greatest gift we’ll ever receive too, all part of our souls eternal journey back into remembering. For that is the journey that lifts us free from all the illusions and delusions of our overt domestication. That said; be under no illusion, that is a highly traumatic journey that takes us to lots of dark and secret vaults filled to overflowing with all our energetic blocks. Not very nice places to visit and for a whole host reasons too, however; once we’ve returned from that darkness, the great news is all things change and for ever. And the reason? Well that journey imbues the brutal process of rebirth via the fire, where we must face up to our shadow side and take full responsibility and in essence own all of our energetic self limitations. That said; my healing journey to release my hurts, my hurts all my deep seated hurts truly began at the point I committed fully to “recognising the conscious acts of my mortality”. At which point my life dynamics changed completely and I changed accordingly too and if you’d like to read more about that awakening journey and process you can read more by simply clicking [ here ] Equally my conscious act of; “reclaiming my power” indeed that power which was stolen from me as a child commenced some time ago too and again that is a necessary aspect of releasing our hurts and moving back into vibrational alignment and owning our own personal power. That said and if you’d like to read about how I began reclaiming my personal power you can read more about that journey by simply clicking [ here ] where there are links to shamanic healing views and free publications by Kay Gilliard and Tom Kenyon.

Acknowledging The Instinctive Gifts of Pure Love is an Essential Component

Shamanic Energy Medicine

Shamanic Energy Medicine

I make no secret of the fact that I’ve had an extremely challenging mortality and because of that I have very few cherished memories that I can look back upon or indeed hold dear in times of great despair. Nevertheless I do feel I’m blessed to have received three powerful gifts of pure love in my life indeed a hug, a rose and a kiss. All instinctive and all unconditional and therein all the greatest gifts I’ve ever received, but hey don’t just take my word for it, have a read and draw your own conclusions, all of which were acknowledged, during the process of clearing the hurts from my own [ eagles journey ]

A Hug From A Giant

I was once mentored by a giant filled with love, a giant with such warmth and such generosity that he shaped my very way of seeing and of being. That man was my granddad and in the days just before he passed away, he hugged me like he’d never hugged me before. No words did he speak only tears rolled down his face and in that moment we both knew that his time here as a mortal was coming to an end. Therein and as ever in controlling his pain with dignity, he filled my heart with enough love to last me several life times for we were one in unconditional love and for ever. Namaste

A Rose From A Rose

As a battled for my life in a body ravaged by pain and disease an innocent little girl gave me a fragrant wild purple Rose and kiss on the cheek one bright summers morning. With only the words “I’ve picked this especially for you, stay safe bazdad, thank you for loving me and making my mum so happy, just so you know bazdad I love you too”. Such was the purity and power of that gift of love that in that moment it blew me away, yet in the process blessed me with a renewed sense of determination. Heaven only knows where that additional resolve came from, however that is the power of love a simply almighty force, a force that no other force can eclipse or indeed equal. Namaste

A Kiss From An Angel

In the midst of a storm all men are alone and yet for some if they are of good heart they may just be blessed by the company of an angel. Therein I was once kissed by an angel at the point I was all but spent, saying only this; “O baz I do love you, please don’t leave me, you know I’m here for you always, you can and you will get better trust me”. A turning point for me where my personal resolve contradicted all of my mortal pain, all of my mortal sufferings and all that which was being clinically articulated too. Once again a clear demonstration that there is no greater gift than the power of unconditional love, for unconditional love has the power to rewrite anything and everything. Namaste

Authors Dedication & Concluding Notes

Shamanic Wisdom and Healing

Shamanic Wisdom and Healing

This post is dedicated to the very few who have cared enough to love me, the very few who helped me heal and resolve my many energetic blocks. A special thanks goes out to my shamanic mentor Briony Stott too, for her support, her wisdom and her generosity of soul. That said; I have no idea what the future holds for me, or how many more tests I will have to overcome before I take my last breath. Equally I have no idea just how much unconditional love I will receive and give, but really that’s of very little significance. If there’s one thing I’ve learned via my own shamanic healing journey it’s that we cannot possibly love, heal or save any other soul that doesn’t want to be loved, healed or saved. Therein our journey must remain focused and clear at all times affording us the love and the grace to stand back and read all the messages and signs as they present. For there is no healing and certainly no pure love, where we seek love via acts of insincerity.

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

Mortality is a Heady Mix of Emotions & Journeys Too

Thanks to Joseph Campbell, I Understand My Own Hero’s Journey

Healing is In Self Love

Healing is In Self Love

Mortality is a heady mix of complexities and journeys each one of which and in their sum, playing their part in shaping our being and all our understandings.

That said; there can be no self love or expansion without the pain via our acquired learning, so best we embrace that, allow that, whilst letting go of all our sufferings. For peace is forged upon the anvil which is the acquisition of great wisdom, bestowing self mastery upon those brave enough to undertake the heroes journey. All part of a timeless process thats pushes the hero into facing up to and transmuting the savage that resides deep within them, allowing their light to shine. Therein; upon reading these five embedded articles, you’ll discover that I cover the pain, the spirit, the love, the search for peace and the acceptance of my own mortal journey, which changed all things and everything for ever and ever. A journey that was born of pure love, inspired by my souls desire to heal, a process that required I be stripped bare to the bone and burnt in the fires of remembering. Such that whilst my peers and DNA family fixated upon their self righteous greeds, I always felt it much greater to evolve as the timeless soul I’ve always been, for better that than; to shrivel and fade away as a wealthy, yet impoverished mortal. For I saw no love, no succour and hence no reward for my soul in living out a narcissistic or sociopathic mortality and thats why I accepted my heroes journey. So it was, so it is and so it will always be, for I embrace; [ all in wholeness ] Amen

Rebirth Through The Dark Night of Ones Soul

I’m very much aware of living in, with and through the metaphor called; the dark night of the soul. Having spent 30 years in absolute mortal despair and a further 11 years of mortal hell, I believe that I am blessed to have some how survived my own. For it was an integral aspect of my souls continual evolution through the often gut wrenching process of abstract abstraction and remembering. A divine process designed to simply crush the old and then rebuild anew, a hard journey and like no other mortal journey read more [ here ]

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life !

Even on the darkest of nights, the sun is shining somewhere on planet earth. Which means in truth there is no shadow world, save only for the shadows cast by the dogma of egocentric medical man. That said; I battled alone for the right to life after 30 years of dogmatic clinical and medical abuse. Therein proving that I wasn’t simply a waste of space neurotic, but actually an extremely ill man. Indeed a man of great decency who’s life and professional career was being destroyed by a range of late lymes disease generated conditions and all whilst being simultaneously blamed for everyone of my highly debilitating health related conditions read more [ here ]

Three Little Birds, a Cuckoo and One Eagles Journey

Only unconditional love has the power to move mountains and make men out of boys, and whilst I know I’m not there yet, I’m happy with my progress thus far. That said; I set out on a journey one day across barren lands, nay waste lands and landscapes simply drenched in fear. Where nothing grew and everything was fruitless, for hope in all that we once were had been wrenched from our grasps. To be replaced by desolation and destruction of all that we had once known. Where despair and anarchy towards that which was unfolding was the only common bond that set decency and the currency of insanity in our nation apart read more [ here ]

In Search of Rest and Peace – By The Solway Coast in Autumn

I sat by the shore today and although I didn’t feel to well and wasn’t really up for the journey, I thought I’m really glad that I made the effort, as I sat by the shore today. I sat by the shore today, in a very ordinary place and yet a place like no other, for this is a special place to me, as I sat on the shore today. I sat by the shore today and watched three black headed gulls ride with sublime ease the air current storm, yet they didn’t even notice me, as I sat by the shore today read more [ here ]

I Acknowledge, Yet Release, All of My Dark Night of the Soul Sufferings

The timings now right, indeed very right for me, to release that which helped shape me by almost and on so many occasions all but breaking my resolve. Yes its time to acknowledge that pain, yet to also let go of that too which no longer serves me or the clarity that I fought so hard to unravel and embrace. Therein and for me I know there’s no arm band of honour for surviving ones dark night of the soul, but what there is is a sense of almost sublime purification. How do I know that? Well I’ve paid my dues, and whilst I know and accept that there’s so very many cliches around the dark night of the soul process. My overriding view once through our own is to focus upon the positives, an impossibility unless we have put in the hard yards. Because freedom and self love isn’t wearing those hard yards or scars as our uniform of martyrdom, it’s much more, in fact it’s acknowledging the great wisdom that we’ve acquired along the way, whilst letting go of all our pains and sufferings read more [ here ]
