MP interview

I was standing outside Parliament Last Night and I saw a woman (I would say in her mid thirties) being interviewed by the press.
Sadly I didnt have my camera ready - it would have been awesome.

I approached her and said 'are you an actress or is this your real life ?' She said 'pardon Me?' I repeated 'Are you an actress ?' She said emphatically 'No !' 'Then what are you ' I responded - 'An MP.' she said.
I asked which party and she replied the CONservatives.

'Oh' I said. 'Do you think its possible to be an MP AND be genuine ?'

She really didnt seem to get me but said 'Yes ??'

'But dont you have to put on an act ?' I asked

'No' She replied.

'But dont you have to toe the party line ?' I asked

'But I agree with the party Line !!

I then said 'Do you think that we can continue with Capitalism for the next few hundred years ?'

She said 'I haven't really.....' and then backtracking, she said 'Yes , sure'

Another new party

I had great fun in the last couple of days and got some intersting footage. One of things I did was declare that I had started a new party.

I stood near Parliament Square with my megaphone whilst the BBC etc were filming the election coverage and declared that I was starting a new party called the Liars Party. I declared that this was finally a completely new approach to Politics whereby unlike others, we admit that we are lying as much as possible.

This is best done on video and is great fun - I actually think this could be done and could even get enough votes to get someone into aParliament in a country which has Proportional Representaion. Endless fun can be had but also profound stuff can come out of it.

Politics and forgiveness

One cute comment I saw on TPUC - he points out that the General Election is an election of the General. And so called Democracy gives you the chance to choose your favourite Dictator. He will of course be dictated to but he will also dictate to his underlings and to us.

There are of course many ways to look at everything. I have asked myself 'How do I perceive this election ? What is the most beneficial way for me ?

One of the themes that come up is that they are yet another distraction from the often painful process of self forgiveness.

Let me explain. I have been struggling for many years to accept my own hypocricy. At this time, the struggle is as acute as ever. Part of me thinks I should leave london , leave my house, go to a commune of some sort, live in a mud house, get off the grid, grow as much of my own food as possible, take my kids out of school etc etc. But here I am ,not having done that.

And when I see the politicians, my ego sees a perfect opportunity to project that guilt outwards onto these people who are in a sense the personification of hypocricy. They are doing the exact things that I hate within myself.

So I can shout and scream about them and strengthen the illusion that they make a difference to my life. That idea is such a load of nonsense because (a) my perspective is what creates my life - what and how I choose to focus on. (b) because my current thoughts inform me that the system was deliberately set up so that the type of people who crave power are the easiest to manipulate. This means that its not them that have caused society to be like it is. Its all the inluences upon them - which are almost entirely hidden. (So when the CONservatives put out an advert that 'Gordon Brown doubled the National debt' they are very cleverly tricking people into believing that he was responsible for it and that Cameron can do anything different)

Or I can choose the far more difficult and painful path of USING them as a trigger. Every time I think about David Cameron, for example, and all the judgements come up (and they can be very viscious in my mind) I stop and ask myself - what am I hating within myself. And I can meditate for a moment and forgive myself for my own hypocricy. Forgive myself for not caring enough about the less fortunate. Forgive myself for allowing myself to be manipulated by others. Forgive myself for putting on an act in public which is so different to how I act in private. So then I can thank David for this opportunity for me to heal myself.

I can say that for me, its a VERY challenging choice and my habit is to blame him and the system and do everything BUT look inside. And of course even that needs to be forgiven.

Happy self forgiving !

leaflets - unformatted- putting this up for 2 days by rquest

This leaflet is NOT religious, NOT political and NOT designed to SELL anything. Its far more important than that !
IMPORTANT : The purpose of this message is NOT to get you to believe anything or to buy anything including buying into any sort of belief system.
The point is to gently inform people of a different perspective on life – a perspective the mainstream media and those in power have kept secret form the masses until the internet made it more and more difficult to keep the secret !
People always say that we are living in interesting times. Well it feels that way to millions.
Some would say that what is really going on is a war. Its World War 3. But it’s a completely different war. It’s a war for our minds. And it started well before World War One. It has been going on for years. And more and more people are waking up to it.
The problem with calling it a war is that this invokes the very same energy that is used to keep you under control. The energy of FEAR.
I prefer to call it a GAME !
And it really is an astonishing game. The most intriguing game ever devised. And YOU are part of the game whether you know it or not. Whether you like it or not.
Part of the game is that there have been a small group of people who know how the game really works. They keep the rules of the real game secret. One of the ways they try and win the game is to hide from you is that such a game exists and that YOU are part of it. And then to top it all, they use us as unsuspecting pawns in the game. We actually do their dirty work for them without knowing it !!!
But thanks to various factors including the internet, more and more people are discovering these secrets.
The wonderful thing about this game is that the way to play it well, involves the healing, growth and evolution of each of us as individuals. Furthermore, the more people that wake up to their own magnificence and power, the more people that see through the fear mongering, the more powerful the ‘group consciousness’ gets. And group consciousness is the most powerful force – this has been known for Millennia.
So the purpose of this leaflet is to invite you to start playing the game more consciously and join the millions of people world wide who are waking up to this.
It makes no difference whether you are black or white, male or female, young or old, upper class or working class, religious or secular or atheist, highly educated or not, rich or poor, healthy or sick. All these distinctions were deliberately created to keep you away from these secrets. (Divide and conquer) None of these distinctions are real anyway.
The Films, books etc below will NOT take you down a particular path of thinking or believing. And it is not always an easy path to ride. It may not be right for you at this time, in which case, please consider simply handing this leaflet to someone who you think may be interested.
Otherwise, hold on tight and enjoy the ride….
COMEDY: Search youtube for Bill Hicks and George Carlin. POSITIVE FILMS: youtube – The Green Beautiful; youtube – The freedom Movie 2
DOCUMENTARIES – Search google videos for ‘CENTRUY OF THE SELF’’ ‘POWER OF NIGHTMARES’ , and ‘THE TRAP’ (3 separate films by Adam Curtis)
For a most unusual and mind blowing look at the law/political/economic system , which may have you falling off your chair, visit this and take a look at John Harris talk in Stoke. It is quite stunning.
Books that have inspired these ideas
If you are open to challenging your preconceptions, try Anastasia by Vladimir Megre. (part of the Ringing Cedars Series)
The New Earth – Eckhart Tolle
Some of you reading this leaflet will be familiar with the concepts and perhaps some of the films etc. You may have been wondering what you can do about this. My guess is that it would take a truly great mind to think up a remedy for the mess we are in which has been created over thousands of years. The only one I have come across which seems remotely possible is in the Ringing Cedars series of books. This talks about a return to nature in a very unusual and detailed way. But it also talks about the importance of ‘image’ as in our imagination. The invitation is, instead of reading newspapers or watching TV news (which use image to control and manipulate) , close your eyes and Imagine your life with complete health, with complete abundance, with lots of joy. Then spend some time imagining life on the planet with complete health, complete abundance and lots of joy. This can be done on the tube or whenever we have a few minutes to spare and be made into a daily practice. We can start to reclaim the power of our imagination. The power to create our personal reality and our collective reality. The power which some believe has been hidden from you deliberately. Yes – admittedly, you may then become ignorant of who murdered who, and who raped who and which minister was corrupt. Does it really benefit you to keep on being subjected to this? What is the ENERGY behind all these stories ? What is the energy behind these words.
