A Collaboration of Minds

  The following is another quality piece I channelled last year from the inimitable Sidiris, that part of my consciousness that possesses far more clarity and determination than I usually have in my own dealings with the profane and the mundane. I’m posting this while waiting for layers of paint to dry (yes, I’m painting […]

Lily and Richard

This is a piece I wrote/channelled a few weeks ago. It’s about the wider, collective consciousness of a teen girl called Lily, and what some would call her alter-ego, Richard, though Richard and the broader entity of which he is a part knows no such thing and believes to be just as real as Lily.

Feliz Cumpleaños Frieda!!

Today is Frida Khalo’s birthday. She was born 111 years ago in 1907, Mexico. You may or may not be aware that I am quite a fan of this fine and very talented young upstart (although 111 years may be a little past its sell-by) – just saying. We have an odd relationship, if you […]

The Validity of Humans and Trees

The following piece is another excerpt from my metaphysics book, which I continue to write, although I have now written the first draft of the final chapter. Tuesday 20th June 2017 – 10:49am “Infractions of the heart do occur. It does not take much to realise that your heart beats with every thought. It thrives […]

Personal Sessions, Frida Khalo and, Art.

Recovering as I am from a mild concussion, (don’t ask…), I thought I’d share and indeed recycle stuff written way back when, as opposed to focussing on writing anything new. Head’s still a little fuzzy, and I’m not supposed to be on the computer. I’ve been going through my archives lately trying to refresh my […]

Books, Islam and Performing Monkeys

It has been a revelatory and an inspiring experience the past few days re-reading the material that I have amassed for this metaphysics book that I seem to have been writing for years now, or perhaps put more succinctly, formulating in my consciousness ready for the moment it would appear. Doing so has brought me […]

A Question of Free Will

This following sample forms part of a chapter in my metaphysics book that discusses the nature of free-will, and precedes the material presented in my post of a few days ago, The Silence of Possibility. It is a lengthy piece, but I’m presenting here in its entirety because I feel that the sense of continuity […]

Civilisation

Another except from my book on Metaphysics, (I have a working title, however I shall keep that to myself until this book reaches completion). I know I have posted a portion of this piece before on my other blog, Ishaiya Freshly Squeezed, so forgive me if you’ve already read it. However, it now sits in […]

Ploughing Through Life

Life can feel a whole lot like shovelling snow sometimes. It’s cold, wet, and unforgiving. You need to push really hard against it to make any real headway, and all it really does is create obstacles in what should preferably be a clear and unhindered path. Why do we often make life so hard for […]
