Practices for sovereignty

I left the UK in 2015 on what would become a transformative journey. A coming of age quest to experience the world on my own terms. An opportunity to test myself in a wide spectrum of scenarios. The outcome of this adventure was a renewed perspective on how to live. I gained an insight into […]

How to discern news from narrative

A few days ago I suggested that its about time we began a critical assessment of our news sources. I make that recommendation because while our attention is elsewhere (the current distraction is global pandemic) significant changes are being made in Law that have far reaching implications for civil liberties and personal freedoms. This morning, […]

Lockdown in India

There may reason for cautious optimism in India. It’s possible that the swift and drastic action taken has contained the spread of the novel coronavirus. Inshallah. Some commentators have suggested that India has overreacted. As the second largest population on the planet the risk of rapid spread is real. Access to basic sanitation, let alone […]

A balanced view

I’m a believer in personal responsibility. I take great care to act in a way that is in line with my understanding of karma. I feel that we have an obligation to show up where we can. To that end I endeavour to create content that articulates a variety of ideas, theories and philosophies. In […]

A glimpse of the future

The hysteria is designed to distract us from something more sinister – as yet unknown, (here’s a clue). As part of my own […]

Groundless fears

People die everyday. Of lots of things. It’s the human condition. Just now the world is locked down for fear of spreading a virus that is little more harmful than the common cold. It’s the most absurd situation one could imagine. Really, it’s daft. Fear of death and projected fear of loss of a loved […]

Relax. Everything is out of control

In times of uncertainty it’s easy to allow the feeling of anxiety to take hold. The great trick of our age has been to convince us that we are ‘safe’, that we have ‘security’. It’s a fallacy that needs must be curtailed. There is no such thing as safety. Only chaos. The idea that because […]

Wake up west

Some years ago I set up a web domain, had a logo designed and created a business plan for an entertainment agency. The idea was to run music festivals to celebrate local music. We even had a stage built. During that time I attended a business start up course at an incubation centre attached to […]

No more normal

Today a friend shared a riff in the Emergence Magazine about the Celtic tale of Finnegas. It’s a poignant myth that reflects on the state we find ourselves in during these strange times. This resonated with me in a way that only myth can. On a primal, earth and sky, human level. It’s time we […]
