No. Nothing Happend!

Bit warmer – but that’s  not saying much.  I mean, at least it hasn’t been freezing, as the last few days have been.

To save anyone asking: (and just shut up in advance Cat!) I met Speedqueeen  in person last night.  A really beautiful lady:  she turned up in an outfit resembling black leather with a low-cut top which revealed well-heaved flesh that almost seemed to want to burst from behind it!

No!  Nothing happened, but I found her to be an honest and outspoken lady of great understanding and intelligence.  She certainly has got a sexy figure, but you can’t really blame her for that.  Her white flesh almost seemed to contrast behind the black top she was wearing; appealing flesh which you felt just had to be admired if not touched!

But no.   Nothing happened.   I was too tired in that direction (no real sleep for two days) and I just didn’t want to get a  ‘slap around the face’ for premature advances.

But we discussed you to  some extent, Cat.  In fact, she said if ever she got her claws on you (and she wasn’t joking),  she would only be concentrating on one part (so you’d better watch out!).

Reminds me rather of what some ‘Yorkshire Pudding” said to me repeatedly about ‘saving certain middle parts’ of a certain ‘bishop’ if ever she got hold  of him!  (And I also have that in writing!).

But aside from that, all is quiet.  Book is finished as I said.  So now its really just on to the next one.

Don’t Hold Your Breath!

I saw Gareth this evening and he brought his Introduction for my new book.  It reads really well and fits onto two pages – which is just what I wanted.  This means the book is now ready for printing; so no need to ‘hold you breath’ everyone!

Its still cold and miserable out; which is why I tend to stay indoors during the cold weather.  No more walks for me in the Woods, at least unless we hit a warm spell.  The only walking I did was this afternoon into the shopping centre.  Speedqueen specifically told me not to drink any of her whiskey. . . well I have (the cold, you see!).  But don’t worry Speedqueen, I’ll be getting another bottle!

I see Cat is back again here.  Only a brief appearance, but with his usual innuendoes.  (Rather like Craig in that respect!).

Call in earlier from America (West Coast).  They want me to do a live radio interview with ‘call in’s before Christmas on the existence of ‘ghosts’.  I said I’d do it because its comparatively no effort to speak on the end of a telephone – especially when I’d probably still be up anyway.

Shortly after that, another call from a local Methodist Youth Club inviting me to give a talk on the Highgate phenomenon.  Probably do that too as its fairly close.

You know, I sometimes wonder why I’m becoming so popular, when I’m such a shy and reserved person in reality! 

I can’t remember if I said, but I saw Patsy and her husband on Sunday, and they brought the photo’s they took of our visit to the Silent Pool.  One in particular I like of us all together at the Pool  edge.  Needs a bit of lightening, but I think it will go well in the next edition of “Dark Journey”.   Anyway there’s plenty of time for that.

Apart from that, everything is quiet.  At least, for the moment!

The Real Nature Of Evil

Had a ‘sort out’ this afternoon and, although mainly looking for letters for inclusion in the next book, I came across some of my ‘spiritual journals’ I really began in earnest in 1982.  This was a period of ‘transition’ for me really; a period when I decided that I no longer ‘needed’ Wicca, as I had learned all I could from it.  It was an intense period and one that I cannot really describe adequately here.  But it last for several years, and I determined to write everything down while it was ‘fresh’ each day.

Looking back at some of my ‘note book writings’,  I was really quite moved by some of the revelations that were ‘given’ to me.  For ‘given’ they were, with an intensity that was certainly not influenced by any human hand or voice.  I remember, it all started quite suddenly, and if was if a shutter had suddenly been lifted from my eyes, and enabled me to see beyond the veil of human life and existence.  It was always uninvited and unexpected, and I never attempted to converse with It, just listen.

It is very difficult to put into words, but in a very short space of time (albeit gradually) I realized that many of the previous beliefs in Wicca that I had taken for granted (and in other religious too) had been misunderstood: and such misunderstanding had arisen by the very fact I had taken these for granted without realizing the real nature upon which these spiritual forces were based.  It is not that many of these beliefs were ‘untrue’, but they stopped well short of explaining the real Cause behind them.

I think two essential spiritual truths that came through to me at the very beginning was the vital  importance of understanding Consciousness, and understanding the real  nature of evil.

I am not going to go into the full extent of these revelations here, but I learned that without first understanding the full nature of Consciousness, there could be no real understanding of that Divine Life Force which brought everything (including ourselves) into existence.

I also learned, that while evil certainly existed (in the human world, at least), it was not the result of some ‘supreme evil force’ (or ‘devil’) controlling it.  It was the result only of the human mind.  And without a human mind in operation, there could be no evil or ‘devil’.  In other words, evil cannot exist  without a human mind to cause or sustain it.  ‘God’ certainly does not ‘punish’ evil – evil only ‘punishes’ itself.  God or Divine Love never punishes anything.  It is totally contrary to Its nature to be able to do so.  In fact, it is impossible for It to do so.

It is only human beings that are capable of creating evil.

This came as quite a revelation to me, for previously I had believed that there were independent ‘outside forces’ – or spirits – that had direct knowledge of human evil, when the only knowledge or acknowledgement of the existence of evil came from the human mind itself.

Then what of ‘evil spirits’? or ‘intelligences’ that are supposed to exist and influence human thinking?

This is surely a vital question, but the basic answer is, that there are no ‘evil spirits’.  There are evil thoughts that may in sustained in the very atmosphere and can manifest as ‘evil spirits’; but when this occurs (as it so often does), it is invariably the result of human thought (even ‘disembodied thought’) that is manifesting to a very human awareness of it.  But there exist no independent  ‘evil spirits’.  All we can ever witness is the manifestation (or result) of human thought.  That is the very origin of evil.  And it is not controlled by any ‘devil’.

Well, it is getting a little late so I will leave you with that  There’s really little else to say anyway as its been a really quiet day!
