time being redoubled
growing, glowing thru me
glass eyes
sunburnt hands
the secret identifying marks
increased pleasure
improved design
unravelling mystery
internal dialogue
time being captures heart chakra
time being storms the seat of the soul
simple algebraic function
complex ulterior motive
what do words mean?
what is the truth?
what is untruth?
on what level are you reading me?
evening becomes elektra
morning becomes miranda
aurora is day
eve is night
scarlet is the colour of my mind
daughters of the revolution
children in time being grown
is that why the time (being) has come at last ?
mother natures silver seed to a new home but no son
wise women
women who will heal
witches
enchantresses
sorceress
midwives
mimi too
ones who may weild power
time being favours neither man nor woman
both strong
both weak
both has weakness in the other
woman, are you more attuned?
woman, can you stand more pain than man?
woman, can you carry on alone?
let women be women
let the men be men
let them conceive wondrous children
let the children be children
let the beasts go free
their misery is our misery
you may be too fucked up to realise that
but you can bet your life on it
man love thy woman
woman love thy man
human love the beasts
angel love the humans
god love everything
god is everything
everything therefore may be god
dont ever ever ever eat meat
you have no idea
the more you eat
the less you feel deleterious effects
you are what you eat
you are what you think
eat wholesome food fit for a human
think marvellous thoughts fit for a poet
dream exquisite dreams in colour
extend
become
step into your shoes
be a real man
be a real woman
be a real childe
i know its hard for you
especially some
i stumbled for 10 years in narcotic chains
of my own making
and of my own undoing
it was a crucible i tell you
i had to pull off that olde flesh
a time being was inside
his time in the cocoon was over
he needed to brake free
the half-life was over
the time being says this
avoid these things
microwave
mobile phones
bullets
cities
tobacco
shouting
anger
jealousy
gluttony
laziness
politicians
fluorescent lights
television
aeroplanes
unclean food
regrets
bad energy
ugly scenes

all of these things can aggravate your condition
some are sometimes unavoidable
this is my experience
this is my persuasion
5 daughters to carry on the unfinished work
beautiful if not always dutiful daughters
oh all the things they could do!
all the paintings or music
or maybe theyll be doctors
or writers
or something that gives back something good
something to even up the scales maybe
female energy w/ time being attributes
someone to remember the spells
someone to remember the dead
someone to explore unexplored space
and come back and try to tell the story
someone whos not afraid to say
war is abomination
eating flesh is anathema
money isnt everything
power isnt everything
popularity isnt everything
maybe bite the chubby beringed hand that feeds em
and sink their fangs deep into the flesh
and spit out a better world
or just even a tiny part
is this my purpose?
is this my accident?
stay tuned
or come to the enmore
or the national
i will convince you
in music

    Last night, tossing and turning, courting the veil of sleep that wouldn’t come, I realized that I’ve been listening to The Church for just over half my life, from 16 or 17, and I’m now 34.

    This music has been the soundtrack to so many experiences, good and bad, transformative and tragic.

    Starfish was there during all the times I lay on my bed gazing out the window, dreaming of doing great things.

    Starfish and GAF were also there as I wandered through Central America (I had only a tape player, and I had these on tapes), during that transformative time, that turning point where nothing was ever the same again.

    Sometime Anywhere was with me at the dissolution of a long relationship, and “Authority” summed it up so well.

    Dabble came out while I was living in Japan, working by day and writing all night. I also got acquainted with all the solo and side projects at that time of relative financial abundance.

    After Everything Now This came out as I hoisted my pack for Mongolia. Those verses and those wandering notes will forever be associated with the wide open skies of Ghengis Khan country.

    Forget Yourself came as I struggled to make a go of writing, enduring soul sucking temp contracts, often at cubicle hell government offices where no one took the trouble to remember my name, where genius and individuality were stifled. That album on my headphones helped keep me sane, and helped me to keep tending the fires of revolt.

    Uninvited ushered in a new era, an era of burgeoning success in my two chosen fields of endeavour.

    All these things and more, much more.

    Thanks, Steve. Your work is appreciated.

    Many of us here come
    Preconvinced.

    And we understand you are looking for something.

    The missing bit. Jigsaw sky.

    You know we have the answer. That’s why this is happening. One of the dots on the screen knows what you want to know so badly. If only if you could just frame the question…

    It’s not me. I know nothing. I just watch.
    But one of us holds the answer. The key to your Rubber Soul.

    Here’s the foundation to this House of Cards
    Just smoke the jack’s pot and you’ll win the lot
    Suit yourself said the ink blot
    I never owned.

    Keep asking the wrong questions and the right one will answer itself.

    Amen to all of that. Blessed daughters are those of SK to have such a good start in life. Blessed are those who read your blog as well. No matter what the subject is, I always feel either moved somehow, changed or just verified every day I check in with your thoughts on life, love and the universe. I couldn’t feel more privileged. We are all one. All the best …

    i love the blogg. nothing true about the past, nothing true of whats to come. that only leaves the present, which is as good or bad as we imagine. limits, regret, people, materials, have no place. as humans perspective is our power as long we dont depend on people for love, whicch is meaningless if you dont have a higher love.

    i sense an urgency in the words as of late…
    i can dig that.. no time like the present..no time like the being..
    its hard sometimes to hold still while you make us all beautiful..
    but theres a lot of us trying..the church= perpituity

    held in the highest regard but also the highest standards…

    i am simply amazed at the stamina..
    ive been purposefuly noticing some of the , how should we say,more experienced(ok older)musicians on there comebacks ,for lack of a better term….

    none can hold the candle….tote the mantle like the you and the boys….

    a real animus…

    thanks for havin the balls to speak from your heart….

    i have always admired that in a person….

    im lookin foward to more ..

    love hard everyone…

    ...being here, doing this... | 11 October 2006 at 3:14 am #

    “time being captures heart chakra
    time being storms the seat of the soul”

    There is definitely some sychronicity happening here!

    I participated (anonymously!) in this free forum last year!!

    And….it’s all about helping to align and integrate in a practical way.(In line with what seems to me to be the true spirit and purpose of The Time Being!)

    The program took 6 weeks to complete…. 1 opportunity every few days. Any faster than that, and the potency is compromised.

    This isn’t about you, me or GZ.

    Methinks this may be about…the time being here, doing this… and then showing us all how it’s done!!

    Or maybe it’s just a big co-incidence!!!

    Only the time being will tell!

    When I am around bullets I try to make sure they are flying away from me very quickly, not coming towards me. Does that count?
