double life

double life

double doable life

marble clad rome

hard drive over my heart

cold green pool i plunge in past the shock

glide still pumping round inside my skull

what a great gig friday night was !

glide were/are such a good band

where would william be now if he was still here..?

my ears ring on and on

the church are rehearsing right now for gig on weekend at bulimba

a smallish festval in Qld, isnt it, i think

the new album coming so soon now

bits and pieces may start appearing when we have the word

meanwhile i paint i sing i spend time with the doodles and the woofle

i drove a guys sporty car that had a cd player that actually worked

and the only cd at hand was painkiller so i pumped that on long lonely drive

fuck theres some good numbers on there! tim deserves much credit too!

its a good record. perhaps my best solo album

i was amazed i was playing all that stuff myself except drums and radio sounds

yesterday the mere bass was proving troublesome

after the church aint played since 1 and a half years ago

things werent quite picking up as naturally for my fingers as i thought

i’m getting old and forgetful

i’m getting better and more honed in

but more absent minded

as my mind devotes all its computing power to artistic pursuits

it has no room for remembering where the keys and where the glasses are

or the phone and plethora of cards and bullshit you gotta have

i met a guy from fiji last night at rehearsals

he was standing outside watching me like a hawk

as i rolled and smoked some organic gippsland weed

i walked over to him

he was very happy to partake of the herb

he plays in a fijian band that play at fijian gigs in sydney

a whole other world

fijian reggae

him a big black young bloke

me a puny white old geeza

united by the weed and by our love of music

awww! dontcha just love this shit, people?!

in yoga i get a transmission from the universe

but ah translation in to english kilbey speak may render it stupid

we cannot realise the concept of that we call god

god is much more than our tiny minds can possibly dig

god (as we must call him tho i dont like this term)

communicates with each person in their own self

although he may not be heeded

the evidence of his existence is existence itself

this finely tuned and brilliant earth

god does not authorise persecution and killing in gods name

god authorises only mercy and compassion and knowledge

however this is an obstacle course to negotiate

we will come back time after time as we learn everything we need to know

eventually within eternity it will all become clear

it is gods grace to appear in a personalised form i imagine

as christ as krsna as buddha 

tho the universe that communicated with me

was just sudden warm thoughts as i stood in garudasana and tree pose

the idea of 2 warring deities using humans as pawns is preposterous 

not worthy of consideration

so too the idea of the accidental earth fallen together into perfection by itself

yeah my songs write themselves too

just like the birds singing outside in the rain got here by accident

there is something so wonderfully large and warm out there

we are not alone

throw away your scriptures they are misleading if interpreted literally

god is within us 

our world our humanity has slowly cut us off from feeling this warmth

our schools our wars our money

our hatred and anger screams so loud

it drowns out the warmth in our hearts

the warmth favours no country no man no era

like the sky it is above and beyond taking sides 

the words in books are mens words subject to all mens faults and lies

the warmth in the heart is ineffable 

it does not compose rules or impose punishments

that is a human thing to do 

not for god/warmth

karma exists as does maya as does gravity

all you can do is love ad forgive and be honest and kind

look and you will see god everywhere if you want to

let it blow your mind

you are imperishable spirit dressed in temporary flesh


this is the truth as i felt it

this is my truth only

but this truth is the indisputable truth to me

    Your transmission is not rendered stupid in translation Steve – quite the contrary, it echo’s my thoughts over the years. And don’t worry about forgetting keys and glasses – start worrying when you forget what they’re for! haha

      Your speaking of the devil. The worst term God has ever spoken of anyoneiss wicked or evil ways. From my memory.

    The ability to make sense of universal existence becomes somewhat diminished when the raw data is processed by an almost infinite number of sources in never-ending variations. Afterlife after afterlife. Then God – an entity that could process data and relay it effectively, to be understood by all. The end of questions. Imagine.
    Spiritual passion often gives rise to random inspiration and sparks of pure genius. It can’t always be rationalised. It should have no answer.

    Very well said. I’ve always had a very hard time believing that all of this wonder and magic and perfection is the result of some cosmic accident. There’s a very high Intelligence at work.

    Thank you, sir.

    what else is worth all our time? worth talking about? worth writing about? worth painting about? worth thinking about? All our finest words just a brief incoherent murmur in the of god, as you call him. When do we get it right? How do we know anything else? I keep listening to these words whispering on the breeze of time, the breathe of god, as god conceives me to be..

    At work, as I had to file hundreds of forms, one name kept inexplicably being out of order in the vast pile of surnames: ‘Kilbey.’ (I don’t believe in coincidences.) It seems I was drawn back here….

    “we will come back time after time as we learn everything we need to know
    eventually within eternity it will all become clear”

    This is also *my* truth, since I was eight years old and decided reincarnation was inevitable as we can’t learn or experience all that can be learned and experienced as a human being in just one lifetime.

    I don’t know why you’ve just been “something out the corner of my eye.” Seeing, eye-to-eye, but never meeting – yet ever there. The more time that passes, the less I really know.

    Interesting picture…is it two rights or two lefts? I’m guessing two lefts?

    Yin yin, yang yang, either way it comes out wrong.

    And as they say, two wrongs don’t make a right, but three lefts do. However, the third left was left out.

    Now then, you are right nonetheless; thank you again for your straight talk and for reminding us to get busy and do some yoga.

    I think that “God” owns all the killing and persecution in the world in addition to all the kindness and compassion. You can’t know kindness without all the bad stuff to contrast it against unfortunately. It’s all part of that whole dualism thing that “he” went with when first assembling reality. I imagine it was quite an innovative approach when “he” first thought of it and probably influenced a lot of other gods with their own realities. You could bring about such incredible love and beauty with it… but, oh, at such a terrible cost! Is it worth it when all the evil exactly cancels out all the good? “God’s” hat-trick in the end, I think, is that somehow it is worth it.

    is the universe more than we can grasp
    i think i think i hope so
    if not than pain and suffering and joy and wisdom are all for naught
    and my father’s torment before his passing is all for naught
    the morning after he died
    the wall clock fell off the kitchen wall
    and two wristwatches stopped almost exactly an hour apart
    or blind coincidence?

    If God created everything in the universe, God also created ebola.
    Would God have created ebola in the first place if he didn’t want humans to die from it?
    Who are we to interfere with God’s work by trying to cure this virus?
    Funny old thing, religion…

      your words are mere sophistry

      i hate religion
      but religion aint god anymore than the word “rainbow” is a rainbow
      dig the god in your own heart
      but some people gotta work at it i guess
      its a bit like learning to swim

        “this world is an obstacle course”

        Once again, you have a way of distilling an amalgam of ideas into succinct golden nuggets. And we think, “well, of course”, but until you wrote it…

      God gave man freewill & creativity. So perhaps it was man in the laboratory that created Ebola. God always provides a way to overcome.
      Much as earlier comment by another re their statement ‘god owns the killings& persecution’ God gave man freewill it is mostly a human decision whether to harm or bring peace into situations.
      I say mostly because there are factors where this is sometimes not the case without going into my deeper understanding.

    Funny old thing ‘death’…alot of people don’t want to deal with it.

      Isn’t that’s precisely why Christians believe there’ll be an afterlife?
      Because they can’t face the thought of death and want a big daddy in the sky to make it all right for them?
      I’ve seen death several times.
      The last time just 2 weeks ago.
      It doesn’t take any ‘dealing’ with, whatsoever.
      The person is alive. Then they’re not.
      They don’t go peacefully.
      They struggle for every last breath.
      If they’re unconscious, the body’s motor responses can make this a quite grotesque process.
      There’s no dignity or peace in it.
      Then it stops.
      They haven’t gone down a tunnel of light to meet their grandma and their old pets in a lovely meadow in the sky.
      They’ve died.
      And that’s that.
      If you’ve ever seen this and still believe anything else, you’re one of the people who ‘don’t want to deal with it.’

        Sorry buddy u feel this way.
        I who have a relationship with the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ with the full empowerment of the Holy Spirit when I need it – witnessed both of my parents passing along with the suffering that went with it. God took them home to minimize their sufferinng that those who chose to do harm in an attempt to prove a point and shut me down.
        It is not so much the afterlife I seek as u put it. But the eternal life that has no more suffering. Where there is communal peace and harmony and allows can be who they are called to be without threat of persecution or violence. I also acknowledge God’s mercy in all things. It is also that big daddy in the sky who keeps delivering me from the way of the world, who without His hand in the matter of my life I would not be here today.
        That big daddy in the sky is the one I call upon seeking justice for the harm that I continually witness. It is not my place to seek revenge but for God on that final judgement day to dole out the justice for the violent acts that have caused so much pain and sorrow. For all will stand before God on this day.
        I’ve faced death many times. Once death has been conquered one learns not to be afraid of death.
        For as it is written’ they overcame by the blood of the lamb.’

        sound scared… but: don’t be. it actually isn’t like that. more a really neat perspective looking at everything/others and a lot of beautiful freedom into energy as sound and light and movement. like Heaven one would imagine. I think you were just watching their final fear – because they weren’t sure. Peace.
