Being lied to is never nice. It’s annoying when you know that someone is lying to you, because it’s not so much that the other person isn’t telling the truth, it’s that they think you’ll believe their lies. That’s the annoying part, because it’s an assumption that you’re too stupid to be able to see right through them. That’s where the real insult lies, and that’s what our leaders do to us all the time when they present their lies in the media and through broken promises made during pre-election promises.
This is the most beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace that I have ever heard.

Lyrics by John Newton (1725-1807)
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see. Continue reading
The Warrior’s Prayer
I am what I am.
In having faith in the beauty within me I develop trust.
In softness I have strength.
In silence I walk with the gods.
In peace I understand myself and the world.
In conflict I walk away.
In detachment I am free.
In respecting all living things I respect myself.
In dedication I honour the courage within me.
In eternity I have compassion for the nature of all things.
In love I unconditionally accept the evolution of others.
In freedom I have power.
In my individuality I express the God-Force within me.
In service I give of what I have become.
I am what I am:
Eternal, immortal, universal.
~ Stuart Wilde
Now here’s some truth. This is what this image says:
I am not the Prime Minister. I am the “Commander in Chief” of the privately owned Commonwealth of Australia, a foreign corporation registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, District of Columbia. You “idiots” joined my corporation so don’t blame me! It’s your own stupid fault.
My loyalty is with the Vatican, not you! I was not even born here so what do I care. I have no sovereign firth right claim over the Mineral and Energy wealth of Australia.
Now that’s some real truth.
“When a fool hears about Tao, he just laughs and laughs. If he didn’t laugh, it wouldn’t be Tao.” – Tao te Ching
The Tao is “The way of nature,” hence it is “The Way”. The Daode Jing, which is the alternative spelling of the Tao Te Ching, the book of Tao, also refers to Tao as something that existed Before Heaven and Earth, or another interpretation of the Tao is The Source, or The Void, Nothing, Empty, Zero, or The Infinite. This isn’t too surprising since mathematics had no concept of ‘Zero’ at the time. Continue reading
I feel very sad that the two Australians who were part of the Bali Nine were executed. They had shown huge change, and I didn’t agree that they should die. The fifth commandment is Thou Shall Not Kill. Sure, penalise them for what they did, but did they really have to die? Andrew and Myuran made good of themselves in the ten years that they were in jail. They repented. They changed. They learned from what they had done. I’ve met many people in the social circuit who have access to teachings that could help them to do the same, but to be honest, the reality of who they pretend to be is only skin deep. The masks come down pretty quick, given the right piece of gossip. Andrew and Myuran were far better humans than many I’ve observed, met or talked to. Continue reading
