What if the week didn’t exist? – Part 1

I don’t know about you, but I find the week comforting… Over the years, I’ve built up a pattern of working through things that I need to do, in order to get to the things I regard as ‘me-time’. There is the stuff of keeping an orderly house. Then the dog has to be walked… and time to visit my mother in her care … Read More What if the week didn’t exist? – Part 1

A devil called time

Time is an exceedingly curious thing…and much inner humour is generated in the course of exploring it. We don’t really know what time is. It might even be ‘no-thing’ at all, of course, and simply some kind of movement of consciousness… But let’s not get too high-minded about that. This is a basic post about common sense and the fact that we can’t shake … Read More A devil called time

A chip off the old block? (part 1 of 2)

We have a phrase in English; that someone is a ‘chip off the old block’. Its meaning is that someone of merit is continuing the ‘family’ tradition. I suppose it could also refer in a wider context to someone in a group or organisation doing the same thing. A group of scientists are promoting a ‘new’ theory: that of the ‘Block Universe’ or “Evolving … Read More A chip off the old block? (part 1 of 2)

Of Time

Of Time—Of Time I do not speakPosition and duration are my nounsEternal transition my verbsConsciousness my palette —The plucking of imaginary pointsIs how you speak of timeInferred and constant highwayPresent only to the mind—-But passing time aloneKnows no such waypointsIt speaks, if at all, of watchersNow present to changes, now not. —-©Stephen Tanham

#Silenti – A Rose Beyond Violence, part two

In part one, we examined Krishnamurti’s view that the individual could, with considerable effort, ‘unclip’ themselves from their society (though not broadcast it) and begin to separate out the pieces of their world in order to contemplate violence in a new way… This would begin the process of giving the objective world (what IS) some initial power over the egoic self, which had grown to … Read More #Silenti – A Rose Beyond Violence, part two

#Silenti – A Rose Beyond Violence, part one

Many people are in a state of shock following a series of electoral surprises that have rocked the political ‘liberal establishment’ on both sides of the Atlantic. Racist attacks are on the increase and long-respected ‘experts’ are frequently mocked. We are in danger of throwing away many of the principles of established civilisation. It’s easy to feel that these uncertain times contain the seeds of … Read More #Silenti – A Rose Beyond Violence, part one

#Silenti – The Ancient Now

You may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet of late. I’m spending a lot of time ‘in the now’. I’m in the final stages of writing the Silent Eye’s three year home-study course on the Magical Enneagram, and the subject of ‘now’ is crucial to the last four lessons. Some subjects are just so profound that they have the capacity to change your life, … Read More #Silenti – The Ancient Now
