"faith is not just something you have,
it's something you do"

Remarks of Senator Barack Obama
2006 Global Summit on AIDS and the Church

Monday, November 27, 2006

"Often it is only in silence that you first hear the symphony of creativity
playing the melody of lovingness.

Once heard, it starts to become like the background music
to the film of your life.

Until one day you understand, you are the melody"

Sunday, November 26, 2006

When we can behold the wonder and beauty of a flower we have reached a place of lovingness in our being whereby we also have the possibility to behold the wonder and beauty of another human being - even if they do nor agree with us or share our views.........especially if they do not agree with us or share our views.

It is the incredible uniqueness of everything that creates such a stupendous range of experiencing within our life walk.

And for what purpose did you come to this 'realm of relativity' if not to experience that

which you knew as a concept?

The reality of lovingness is absolute: in the realm of the absolute and in the realm of the relative.

Indeed, when it comes to love and lovingness there is no seperation between absolute and relative.

All...all..is a manifestation of this reality

Universal love

"Three teenagers who robbed and vandalised a church in the US state of
Montana will get "love baskets" of electronic games by the congregation"
this was a report carried by the BBC ( here ).

Faith in positive and loving action.

It set me to thinking that similar loving and forgiving actions are always
happening, all the time, in many different religions.I guess it's even
happening in the sadly sectarian-brutalising country of Iraq where
'muslims' are murdering each other in the name of 'faith'. Love has a
way of winning through, despite all obstacles, so I guess that loving
actions are happening in Iraq.

Maybe the media will one day report these things.I hope for the sake
of Islam that they do.

Anyway, thankfully and wonderfully the report became public about
the SHEC (oh, and please remember I am not an american and actually
I live in Sweden).

Belated wisdom

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said: “We did not think, even 1 per cent, that the capture would lead to a war at this time and of this magnitude. You ask me, if I had known on July 11 . . . that the operation would lead to such a war, would I do it? I say no, absolutely not.”
Ah, so many have such greater wisdom with the benefit of hindsight.
Loving religions speak of foresight...anticipation through lovingness.

Death of Islam

Shamil Basayev
He sits in front of a banner proclaiming in Arabic: “There is no God
but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet"
Justifying his attacks on civilian targets, he states: “We are at war
and we look at the reality, and not at whether the population has
weapons in their hands"
So spoke the man who claimed responsibility for the atrocity at the
school in BESLAN.
This is one of the men responsible for the death of ISLAM, see blog entry
Shamil Basayev died yesterday.
"Shamil and other brothers of ours became martyrs by the will of Allah,” said
a statement on a website claiming to be associated with the Basayev terrorists.
What, I wonder,in this warped religious fantasy is the
description given to ISLAM KHADIKOV.
If only we could devote as much energy to loving as we
seem able to devote to...sport?...hating?......rituals?

Deprived and oppressed?

In this past week the first anniversary of the London
Terrorist bombings took place. A video from one of
the 'bombers' was also aired in an attempt at
justification for mass murder. Perhaps it is fair to
ask a few questions:

1. How is it that in Afghanistan and Iraq more

Muslims have been and are slaughtered indiscriminately
by other Muslims, and this was happening with or
without the 'Allied forces presence' ?

2. Which country, prior to the second Iraq war, donated

most to Iraq in terms of food and medical aid? Be
surprised to learn that it was NOT a Muslim country.

3. Was Shezhad Tanweer (The bomber at Aldgate)

really deprived and underpriviledged in British Society
when he could leave in his will the sum of £121,000
(after tax)....and was only 22 years of age when he died?

Immams of the true Islam unite....and defend the truth

of the Prophet and the truth of events. For if tolerance
is surrendered to intolerance it is the end of the authority
of Islam in the hearts of most peoples.

Fear has never - and will never - triumph over love in the

long term.

Islamic silence

Throughout history there has been a continuing
manifestation of the capacity for horror of which
mankind is capable.
In modern history, the Nazi concentration camps
(originated by the British in South Africa!), Israeli
atrocities, the Cambodian 'Killing Fields', the
obscenities of Vietnam, clearly illustrate this
'inhuman capacity'.
However, in ALL of these cases voices -
empowered by religious,moral or ethical energy
- were raised in opposition. And these voices
became broadcast the world over.
As we daily read of the appalling scenarios in Iraq,
it is reasonable to ponder...where are the Islamic
voices of peace, love,compassion
Do we hear Iranian Immams, Saudi Princes, Iraqui
sect leaders...... protesting the kind of grotesque
inhumanity that was, for example, meted out to
the young Iraqui journalist Atwar Bahjat?  Is this
the 'Glory of the Arab world'?
The absence of such voices...whilst the voices
of extremists receive world-wide attention ...
seems to confirm the succesful hijacking of
the truth of Islam. Beware Islam.
Islam is becoming a pseudonym
for horror.
Will the real Islam please stand up and speak?

Crimen Sollicationis

Crimen Sollicationis - Latin for "the crime of solicitation" - issued in
1962 by the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), an
office attached to the Vatican. Described as a "blueprint for
deception and concealment" by lawyers investigating the
worldwide sex-abuse scandals, Crimen Sollicationis contains
strict instructions for dealing with what the Vatican calls the
 "worst crimes" - such as allegations of paedophilia and bestiality.
Rather than report these offences to the civil authorities, the CDF
instructs bishops to
investigate them "in the most secretive way"
or face the "penalty of excommunication

Will to Live unity

"I am life which wills to live, in the midst of life which wills to live. As in my own will-to-live there is a longing for wider life and pleasure, with dread of annihilation and pain; so is it also in the will-to-live all around me, whether it can express itself before me or remains dumb. The will-to-live is everywhere present, even as in me. If I am a thinking being, I must regard life other than my own with equal reverence, for I shall know that it longs for fullness and development as deeply as I do myself. Therefore, I see that evil is what annihilates, hampers, or hinders life. And this holds true whether I regard it physically or spiritually. Goodness, by the same token, is the saving or helping of life, the enabling of whatever life I can to attain its highest development. 
In me the will-to-live has come to know about other wills-to-live. There is in it a yearning to arrive at unity with itself, to become universal. I can do nothing but hold to the fact that the will-to-live in me manifests itself as will-to-live which desires to become one with other will-to-live. "

By any other name

All actions have reactions, interactions.
All non-actions create reactions, interactions.
We are on the verge of a 'critical mass point' in human progress: the time is very near when we commit ourselves fully to the celebration of unconditional lovingness. Loving not simply our neighbour, but also finding ways to love our 'perceived' enemy, as ourself... unconditionally.
(As Gandhi once said "the only devils are those running around in our own heads".).
The more we progress towards the acceptance of 'what is', the acceptance of who we truly are in spiritual terms, the closer we come to materialising the fullest Paradise here on earth, expressing our lovingness in the abundance of health, peace and compassion.
The human race, thanks to the instancy of modern life, is wearying of the old polarised and
unloving concepts, religions and philosophies.
We stand on the very edge of an amazing and truly wonderful age in the history of humankind.
To be true to our destiny, we must be true to our name....kind humans :)

Playtime is over

What we appear to need in this modern world,is a mechanism for celebrating our differences.
We have already created more than enough methods for condemning our differences.
The question to ask of ourselves, is which of these attitudes holds the highest probability for peace, harmony, and self fulfillment ( the expression of lovingness)
It is time for us to come into the consciousness of unconditional love, for the 'toys with which science has gifted us' are far too dangerous for us to 'play at being purposeful' any longer.

Love's Logic

I've always believed in numbers and the equations and logics that lead to reason.

But after a lifetime of such pursuits, I ask,

"What truly is logic?"

"Who decides reason?"

My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional -- and back.

And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found.

The art of......

In a quote usually attributed to Otto Von Bismarck, we are often
told that 'politics is the art of the possible".
Faith, we are told, reminds us that through belief all things are possible.
One-ness is the awareness that the impossible already is, it is simply

Beyond Religion and Politics ?

U.S. President George W. Bush offered humanitarian aid Friday to the quake victims, while noting that relations between Iran and the United States are strained.

"I do want to offer my country's assistance to the people affected by the recent earthquakes in Iran," Bush told a news conference in Cancun, Mexico, where he was meeting with Canadian and Mexican leaders.

"We, obviously, have our differences with the Iranian government, but we do care about the suffering of the Iranian people."

I guess there are a lot of cynics out there who will simply say that such a gesture is simply
backdoor American Imperialism.......

"There lies before us, if we choose, continual progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we, instead, choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal, as human beings, to human beings: Remember your humanity, and forget the rest. If you can do so, the way lies open to a new Paradise; if you cannot, there lies before you the risk of universal death."  Russell-Einstein Appeal pub.1955

The Defence of Truth?

The World Trade Centre atrocity has, more than anything else, concentrated thought and debate world-wide about Islam. I cannot remember any other event in my lifetime that has so 'thrust to public attention' the issues faced by modern Islam. Unfortunately the unbelievable horror of Beslan did not get the media coverage and was further confused by 'internal political overtones'. However, in both these cases Muslim terrorists killed...and killed innocent Muslims in outright contradiction to the teachings of The Prophet Mohammed and the Koran.

The latter half of the 20th century saw a Richter-scale shift in the dynamics of the Muslim faith. "Not all Muslims are terrorists,but unfortunately it seems all terrorists are Muslims" wrote one leading article in a Middle Eastern newspaper.The seperation of Church and State, the target not only of Sayyid Qutb's influential 'In the Shadow of the Koran' work + other works and it's subsequent inspiring effect upon the Jihad movement, is clearly delineated in the pressures for the institution and maintainance of Sharia Law in nation states.

For a non-Muslim (like myself) however, it is extremely difficult to comprehend the repeated contradictions inherent in many of the major religions, Islam included. I mean, is God all-powerful or not? If all powerful, what's all this talk about devils waging wars and devlish armies that could overturn the 'will of God'. Such talk is not a statement of belief, it is a statement of a lack of belief! What's all this talk about an individual who should be executed because they have chosen to worship the ONE God with a different dialect or through a different tradition? Is God so 'power-less' that we imagine we can take over the role of deciding upon life or death? How can terrorists, who betray the principles of their belief system, come to be regarded as 'martyrs?'

How is it possible, even allowing for intellectual gymnastics, to equate the threats and promises of punishment inherent in Sharia Law with this:

"Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clearly from error".
This is not from the Old Testament, nor the New Testament, nor the Sayings of the Bhudda, nor the
words of Christ.

"Compulsion" = force, threat, blackmail, constraint.

"Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clearly from error".
The Koran at sura (chapter) 2.256

Hey, and just be careful about being too judgemental if you belong to another religion,Christianity or Judaism for example. I am sure we can find unending reams of blog material by applying our insights and investigations to these areas also. The reason this blog is not currently doing so is that the confusion and contradiction of beliefs in Islam is 'stealing life'.
Life! Now is that God-given or what?

The price of progress - £50

Yesterday my new printer arrived - an Epson D68, very nice and very
nice (low) price (from www.cheapink.com). Ordered and delivered
within 3 days by post.My 3 year old printer had been giving ink
cartridge problems. It got very frustrating.
In restrospect the frustration is a symptom of my/our incredible urge
for 'Great Expectations'. We often seem to forget just how amazing,
incredible,mind-blowing is the technology that is at our fingertips.
Hey, that is not to say we shouldn't keep expecting,for the drive of
human progress has done much to enhance the lives of so many and
inform the world where the lives of so many others was so
appalling,prompting international aid and response.
However, there is also nothing wrong - and maybe everything right -
with sometimes stepping back and viewing the amazing wonders with
which we surround our existence in this life's walk. We take so very
much for granted, huh?
Blogging,for example!  The power of mass communication extended to
every person with access to a pc and the internet. The opinions of the
individual circulated around the world and viewable by any who choose
to do so. This 'extended freedom' can be a counter-balance to
oppression/repression by 'greater' powers and systems - whether
governments, criminality or even religious organisations.
My new printer is amazing:colour,photo quality,high definition (5760 dpi),
low cost ink cartridges (now that's progress,hehehehe). It is just one of those
countless yet still truly incredible aspects of modern life.
Yet, if we listen to some and bury ourselves in ancient traditions or
un-progressed concepts/philosophies/religions we can have back the
 'good old days'. The answer to our fears for the future does not lie in
the false security of a dead past, rather it lies in setting aside our
fears in favour of full commitment to the adventure of life and life's

One-ness contentment

One-ness is the acceptance of what is, of what already exists.
It is not some idealised religion or philosophy of what might be,
of what could be.
When you come into this acceptance of One-ness, you arrive
at a vantage point that has a completely different view of the
meaning and relevance of life and all the interactions that occur
within it.
Your own thoughts and actions have a relevance previously
denied and an importance previously ignored.
When we realise that we are an integral component of each
other, it impacts upon our relationships in the most positive
of all ways.
Truthfully, what we do to another we also do to ourselves.
The old adage of 'Do unto others' holds the corollary of 'doing
unto yourself", for that which we do unto others is a statement
of who we perceive 'our self' to be.
It is a statement,an energy, we emit that states the kind of
experience we chose to feel at any given moment in time.

The dilemna of hypocrisy
"Afghanistan's constitution is based on Sharia law,
which is interpreted by many Muslims to require
that any Muslim who rejects Islam be sentenced
to death".

The key word in the above sentence is....

Interpretation is the action of making understandable
a language ,tradition or doctrine to those who are
not part of that 'kultur".

Since Christianity,Judaism,Islam all hold the doctrine
that 'there is but ONE God', it is somewhat amazing
that such 'interpetrations of One-ness' can lead to
others being put to death...not simply in the name
of a society...but in the name of ONE God.

In the x-ray-like light of 'unconditional love', such
offensive actions are interpreted,understood, to be
nothing to do with God - but everything to do with
man-made manipulative doctrines.

The doctrine of 'One God' fails and falls when actions
such as those above are carried out. If the courts of
Afghanistan execute a man for becoming a Christian,
i.e. choosing to honour the 'One God' via a different
dialect/tradition, then that court denies the doctrine of
the 'One-ness' of God. The court harms Islam more than
anything this one man has done.

The attraction of opposites

I was recently asked 'do you really think that our spirit chooses to

undergo some of the life experiences we have had - even the
bad ones?'

Now this may take a couple of blogs to answer...so lets start here:
If we are indeed eternal spirits and choose to enter again into
this 'metaphor of relativity' we call life, then it follows that since
unconditional love can deny us nothing...we also choose to enter
into that environment, that conjunction of circumstances, which is
most likely to permit us to experience that aspect,or aspects,of our
divine nature which we wish to feel...as distinct from know.

Now, as previously stated within this blog, experiencing a 'thing' is
not always the only way to 'understand our knowingness',Sometimes
it is the absence of 'a thing' that highlights our knowingness.

In the process of the pathway we may experience our knowingness by
meeting with either the manifestation of it, or the absence of manifestation
of it - or the opposite of it.

For example, we may focus on the innocence of childhood:the experience
of innocence as a spiritual truth could be known by 'experiencing childhood
innocence', or experiencing the opposite. Our spirit knows the difference, but
often a 'thing' is higlighted, emphasised in our consciousness when it meets it's
The 'meeting of opposites' serves the purpose of allowing our spirit to manifest
in our consciousness our knowledgeof a higher understanding. Once we have
confirmed in our consciousness this awareness, we might ask ourselves in what
way our spirit wishes us to use this awareness 'for the benefit of the tribe'.

Does it benefit the tribe if our meeting with the opposite 'destroys us?. You see,
the question is absurd.Remember how we started this....if we are indeed eternal

However, if a life circumstance has emptied you...then rejoice in this blessing,
for soon you shall be filled to overflowing and that which scarred you shall also
be for your healing.

Yeha Noha

Well, here we go again with the blogging :) Another

year I hope you will find this New Year of 2006 to

be the most exciting, fulfilling and satisfying year of
