What Is Right, and Inalienable Rights

What Do We Identify With/ What is our Identity? One snapshot in the Eternal Now; representing my power through my reflection in a red pool – conscious returning Blood to Earth

What Do We Identify With? Where does our identity limit us, contain us, make us something static and dead rather than something Living and Breathing of Flesh and Blood and Sentience? This is a podcast on the complex interrelationship of coerced consent to our own ever-more-limited experience of Life.

I’m talking here about ongoing expansive exploration into Self – into the Nature of our ‘human’ ‘life’ and how it can and SHOULD be so much more beautiful, pleasureful and symbiotic. I’m speaking to the Fact that we get stuck in our growth, our expansion, at specific points – usually manipulated by the agenda to keep stuck in those points; contracted, in contraction or tension of identifying/ focussing all our lifeforce on that issue or specific ‘concept’ – when our True Nature is biodiverse, vibrant, colourful, balanced beauty-in-conscious-action.

I’m sharing some snapshot digital images of living paintings and scenes from my Life: to illustrate the concepts unfolding in the podcast – what do we ‘copyright’ or control about Life? Where do we limit our identity by contracting with others in labelling/ separating Life into false categories? Where can we keep moving deeper, wider, higher – rather than getting stuck in a loop of righteous rather than Right, Natural (Living) Belief and Conscious Living Action rather than automated, repetitive reaction.

The ‘copyrighting’ of the Natural, Ephemeral Rainbow, for example is a powerful illustration of how we lose site of the metaphor of the Living colour spectrum in action: it’s True Nature as a dynamic relationship between our mind, eye, position on the Living Earth, and the light of sun touching and acting through humidity and space-time. The power of the rainbow as medicine – as embodied, liberated Gaia-Sophia consciousness in Living Action through Us, is greatly diminished by the colonisation of ‘rainbow’ as a fixed concept into a flag and ‘movement’.

These subjects have huge relevance at this time, when we’re increasingly being constrained into smaller and tighter versions of ‘reality’, and more aggressive trespasses over our boundaries of thinking-being-feeling-knowing. It’s powerfully important to keep the Real Movement in our Living Expression of Life on this planet, rather than passively consenting to its accumulated dumbing down, interference and effort-full manipulation by a Life-destroying agenda that we all pay into.

Activating Infinite Health

The prevailing myth of our current collective ‘normalcy’ is that our body is inherently flawed, without vital force or taproot into the Divine, and dependent on perpetual interference and, ultimately, absolute medicalisation.

This podcast speaks to the Truth of our enormous potential to heal ourselves: how all that we need is within us, how we have access to unlimited free energy at all times, how each of us has a unique path to our enlightened health – and how only a truly whole-istic and personal approach can bring us back to our Self.

I feel that we can best activate each others’ healing, through sharing openly and without inhibition, our own expansive healing journey; what works for us to bring us back to alignment and harmony, can work through symbiotic resonance with another.

Anything and everything that we do right now remove ourselves from the herding of humanity into pharmaceutical Armageddon, is a step towards Life and global harmony. We’re ripe for this shift in direction: it’s never been a more important time to share and speak out about the real nature of Healing and Health, and our words and openness have never had a more potent and beneficial effect on the planet.

Blessings on your vibrant health awakening,

WHAT DOES WILD EVEN MEAN, NOW?

This podcast speaks to our wild self, our wild nature, and to how our wildness has been not just tamed but methodically shamed the fuck out of us. And how we’re very much the worse off for this.

In the context of our nature, health and well-being, the wild has been stigmatised for generations, but no more so than now – where the sacred act of breathing freely is considered ‘wrong’ and even outlawed. The raising of our voice to speak our spontaneous Truth has similarly been systematically cornered and captured, through schooling, workplace norms and societal conditioning: our minds have been closed and placed under observation, as if we were a beast out to gobble up children.

The quelling of our wild self has happened imperceptibly – to those of us not looking-listening-feeling – robbed from us, and with it has disappeared our vitality, intuition, autonomy and sovereignty. Not for all of us, but for a large swathe of the population who feel ‘safer’ medicalised, bleached, pre-programmed, and with every element of our very Lives dictated and surveilled.

As I’ve talked about at length in previous podcasts, the dark, wild, shadow self is something that we can either live in symbiosis with – or fight to the death with. The mainstream option is ‘obligatory’; life is struggle, and we are expected to flock together in tension and terror, to combat this frightening place we find ourselves born into, effort-fully striving to make sense of the chaotic maelstrom that has been ‘normalised’.

However, many of us know that this ‘normalised striving’ is a very poor alternative to Living A Natural Life; that actually, Natural Law and Living in tune with one’s surroundings and each other, is not only possible, but it is infinitely preferable. Many of us living women and men know – not from a detached, fed-to-us-by-media ‘knowing’ but from a deep, embodied, holistic Knowing – that we are meant to be so much more than this… and the ‘more’ is intimately entwined with our wild or dark side.

When the wild is fully integrated in us we have access to power, synchrony, forces of divine creative genius, energy, inspiration, peace and love… When it is denied, we have disease, psychosis and chaos.

It’s not about ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ but about what we actually want to create. Because whether we’re conscious of it or not, we ARE CREATING THIS REALITY: we’re participating in systems, patterns, behaviours, hierarchies and customs that are bringing about the symptoms that we collectively are currently experiencing. If we want True, positive change, we have to look very deeply and consciously at WHAT WE’RE ACTUALLY PARTICIPATING IN.

The atrophying of our current rigid systems of control, is indicative of the part of our Self that is crumbling: the part that is has denied our wildness, our instinct, our embodied Truth. The false construct of separation could only ever hold us temporarily – it has served its time, now we’re like bracken shoots ripping up the tarmacadam – we’re breaking through the artificial boundary that was set to keep us from growing into our full Self. Now we can begin to see where that growth will lead us.

Community without limitations, free speech, creating the change we want to see in the world…

painting from my time in an artists’ community in Cyprus, around 2002

Hallo beautiful living women and men,

I’ve had various adventures trying to connect deeply with others across the interweb, but this past couple of years in particular, with the gaping void of real connection opening up throughout the p l a n d e m i c, it’s a beautiful new reality of interbeing that is dripping into our digital connectedness.

Here’s a new podcast I’ve made – around the subject of community in our current world:

podcast on community without limits, and the intimacy of online interbeing

As Truth becomes more elusive in the mainstream, those of us seeking Truth magnetise and congregate to share it, where our voices are censored and blocked we’re looking for others who’ve had similar experiences and finding many. Where we’re feeling that deep sense of detachment or isolation, we’re naturally gravitating towards wholeness, closeness.

Nothing in Nature is an accident: even man-made effects or manipulations – on the global scale, and involving all of us – take on an organic, spontaneous and unpredictable energetic dynamic of their own; a new Way appears, that no-one thought of yet.

This is one of the many reasons that myself and others feel a potent, nourishing optimism about what is REALLY happening, right alongside the myriad dramas and distractions that seem so prevalent across the usual channels.

I came across my favourite quote again on an old picture; this quote could be adapted to so many things in Life, but particularly to community – at this time when we might feel like the very fabric of our culture is separating into threads and becoming unstable, the solution is rooted in making the change we want to see around us. The solution is connecting, rather than not connecting.

Coming up in March another gorgeous painting workshop via Vacation With An Artist (VAWAA) – Painting The Wild Woman Awake! I would so love to connect with you on this – the previous art workshops I’ve done online with VAWAA have been deeply moving and enriching, and it feels like a perfect channel to transmit this energetic freedom that comes through painting intuitively from our core….

WHO IS THE REAL TYRANT?

painting from 1999

In this podcast, I’m speaking to the fact that we’ve all been conditioned to some degree or another, into having a power dynamic that doesn’t serve us, between our logic and our felt reality.

podcast on WHO IS THE REAL TYRANT?

There are many, many facets to this conflict, and here I’m talking to how we’re increasingly bound into a kind of perpetual battle with a tyrant-like apart of our un-integrated greater power.

This ‘tyrant’ energy, of course, is a 2-way relationship or conversation: no tyrant exists in a void, without someone to beat down upon. And so it is with our modern psyche vs intuitive; we’re so profoundly embroiled in the illusion of our being a) inherently separate and b) obligated to exert enormous effort in keeping one aspect of self from affecting the rest of the self.

Our sovereignty, our freedom and our holistic vitality – ironically – comes from the very part of us that we’re in resistance to; the place in us that is numb or painful, out of sync or frictional, even dangerous or out of control

painting from 2000

There are innumerable ways in which we can step off of the battlefield with self, and instead step effortlessly into a peaceful, prolific and pleasurable garden.

Like with all True Healing, True Law, True Spirit-Full practise, The Way is always aligned with where we Naturally rest into as if it were already our own: that which feels like it is ‘meant to be’.

Our modern norms are sliding us collectively in very much the opposite direction to this Way of Nature; dragging us far away from that which resonates with Common Sense/ Law, pulling us into a package of orchestrated experience that is no longer even pretending to be Natural, True or Right – this accelerating descent is something that each one of us needs to unpack, non-consent to, and disengage from entirely – so we can all Live happy, healthy, fulfilled and peace-full Lives.

on livestreaming from the Arthouse studio…

I’d love your feedback!

I’m restructuring my entire art ‘busy-ness’ and presence online – and am visioning regular live streaming from my Italian Arthouse studio…

This streaming will likely be via my Patreon, which works as Gift economy – pay as you wish/ can/ as you value my sharings.

I’d love this to be spontaneous and structured alternately: showing the real process and consciousness behind the work, and then monthly workshops in a variety of specific topics, like all with the deep-intuitive at the core.

I run an online art school, and it has evolved nicely, but it feels important to be more organic now, as I’m stepping out of the system and into deep sovereignty.

ARE WE FORFEITING THE IMMENSE ENRICHMENT OF WINTER?

Walking a wild woodland path to a sacred place where I gather clean spring water yesterday, I was immersed in the riches of it all: the water was roaring out into the big stone tub and cascading down into the various levels below; the lower tubs were filled with a water-cleansing plant doing its work; I ecstatically soaked up the light and the powerful imagery of the panorama which inspires my art; beautiful dry wood was all around, waiting to be cut and carried for the kitchen stove; I walked home laden with riches that would nourish me deeply, and shining with vitality and well-being.

It came to me here, that the abundance that I’m experiencing so tangibly, is mostly conditioned out of us in these bizarre and contrary modern times: we fear winter and wish for year-round summer, and we celebrate in superficial ways our false abundance – sugar, alcohol, overheated homes and excess instead of reverence.

As I talk about in this vlogcast, we tend now to close the doors and huddle inside in the cold/ dark months, save our coins and splurge on things that don’t particularly nourish us – rather than finding the riches within and outwith our living bodies.

If we approach winter in awe and respect, in a Natural way, we can find immense treasure and Gift – listen here to how I do this:

clearing new paths

Hallo beautiful living men and women,

Here’s my podcast this week on clearing The Way – it relates to how we navigate these times from a place of connectedness and wholeness, and how Nature can help us do that.

podcast on opening new paths

There’s a sacred site that’s special to me, nearby Guardia, but accessible (until now) only by a drive of a few kilometres, and then a steep hike up a rocky hill.

There’s a huge stone in the shape of a lioness’s head and upper torso, and a beautiful wild spring. From what I know of local history, this was a place in which both religious and natural wise mystics (called janare or strege, which like ‘witch’, tend to have a negative connotation) would dance together.

I’ve talked about this place before on my podcast: the water source there in particular (you can hear a podcast around the importance of harvesting wild water – here), the beautiful old trees around the site, the views all around, the atmosphere and the power of the light and the landscape…

I found the beginnings of a path some years ago, and had walked it with friends who love the wild woods, sitting with our tea and biccies, enjoying the ambience… We’d chatted about trying to connect up the path again.

The idea sat quietly in me for a while, as our dreams of visions sometimes do, waiting for the right moment. I was afraid of stepping onto someone’s land, or meeting angry sheepdogs, or something – and held back because of feeling it’d be too big a job on my own to delve into the undergrowth.

But it called and called to me, and recently I felt an urge that simply had to be responded to with an action: being told to go and open this Way. I asked couple of close friends to join me, and we started out with saws and forbice, and my friend’s elderly dog to keep us on track.

It took a few hours, chopping back brambles and hawthorns, clambering along narrow animal trails that traversed the steep hill, finding the less effortful way around a huge limestone boulder… we stepped up out of a clay-muddy wood into the field by La Leonessa.

The sense of energy freed up is enormous; this potential sentiero, that had been asking to be reopened – reconnecting with these natural woodlands, when most other walks near the town go through cultivated land, or places where folks hunt a lot – the sense of having a place to worship nature uninhibited – the exercise on multiple levels – the bright air washing our systems clean.

It is so awe-inspiring to think of the healers who have walked a similar route before us, and who might have planted the apple trees, the sacred hawthorns, the wise oaks.

Feeling the transmission of the journey on foot, each time I walk it; it’s transformative. I feel answers coming where before there were the walls of a terrorised mind. I feel old wisdom that wanted to come through me as a child but was beaten out of me, stirring and opening the gates of my senses. It feels Right, in an atmosphere of everything-out-of-kilter, where all that was solid is being pulled out from under us.

The fears that held me back for years from opening this path, seem silly now. And this reminds me that all new paths feel impossible, or we find reasons to not take them… and we stay in the very same rhythms and patterns our whole existence, having essentially the same experience, and very little growth.

These times ask us all to be a wee bit braver than usual, and to step into a new track, a new way of being, a new paradigm that wants and needs us to walk it.

EVERYTHING that we do in the world is metaphor that echoes out from us doing it: everything has a power of meaning – or not. The more consciously we participate in everything that we’re doing, seeking the meaning and the rippling positive effect of it, the more we actively listen to and act on signs; the more the Universe sings back to us. Our dance with Life was NEVER meant to be this torturously empty, constructed-manipulated monstrosity that we perceive to be ‘normal’. If we look for the signs, Life is in everything, waiting to be activated.

So much love, and blessed days to you,
