happy easter from the 2 SKs

time of forgiveness

time of love

time of calm

time of renewal

jesus christ was a beautiful cat

he preached tolerance

he preached giving people the benefit of the doubt

he preached even -handedness

he preached going the distance

this was revolutionary then

it still is now

open up your hearts

understand each other

treat each other how you want to be treated yourself

dont worry about the finer theological points

ignore the religious bullshit

just actualise all your love

love love and more love

thats all i can say

doesnt matter if you “believe in” jesus or not

still its an ideal

a way to try to lead your life

be gracious

be nice

go on

the other thing has never worked, will never work…

this then is all we have

love and peace and understanding

    *** Happy Easter To You And Your Beautiful Angels ***

    I often wondered how the conversation between Jesus and Martin Luther King
    began when they finally did meet ….. maybe there were no words…..maybe it was just a…
    …… hug… embrace of Love, Hope, and Peace to all….

    Happy Holiday(s) to Everyone-
    Wishing grand health and happiness for this season and all that shall proceed….

        Thank you…alas it is Autumn here but I love Autumn in Sydney! Don’t even mind our ‘Winter’. I’m one of those freaks that like cool weather and don’t like Summer here, except on cool mornings and evenings or mild days. In short, we’re probably spoilt with the weather here! The odd wild storm and can have high humidity, but not much to complain about. Camellias starting to bloom… it is a sort of inverted Spring here I guess. Seriously, what that selfless guy did for love of humanity is of course miraculous. Suffering beyond our comprehension and no deviation from the purpose. I can’t help but have faith on Easter Sunday.

    Just a quick Question~~~~~~

    In a couple days will be the one year anniversary of SOH with the incredible Mr. E and friends, will a HD DVD ever be released for sale to the adoring ( and $$$$) public???

    This is absolute torture and we may have to storm the barn and take it for ourselves, heck Tim would be tossing signed copies out of his new limo he purchased from all the heavy streaming $$$$$$ it WILL generate for those four brave men (and you were right up front- never looking or sounding better)

    They ( Everyone ) looked and played amazingly that evening and its captured forever, So who is sitting on top of the box and won’t let the goodies out????
    Please Please Please , will there be a release date for the DVD soon ????

    Easter Bunny once again has bombarded our garden with little treats here and there. Our beautiful dog (who’s birthday it is today) has found a good quarter of the stash,a few harsh words and is now looking like an outcast as the hunt continues.
    Simply uncomplicated living. The harmonious events that make the tough times fade into the background and allow joy to grace us once again.
    Mr .K your words and beautiful photo of you with Scarlett contributed greatly to a wonderful day . Thank you.

    the real Easter is actually at the Spring Equinox two weeks ago
    not this thing the catholic church made up on the first Sunday after the first full moon after spring equinox with its bunny rabbits and eggs
    but I totally grok your message of love and tolerance sk
    and hopefully it inspires all who read it
    yet we are only human and we have elements within which work against love
    I think we need to consciously and actively weed them out to become more loving, tolerant, peaceful, spiritual etc
    to watch our responses and reactions to things and not go along with any negativity as best we can
    its a process, a technique, an experiment, awakening from psychological sleep
    to transform anger into love, greed into altruism, envy into happiness for others, pride into true humility etc etc
    and is something for us to actually do, not blindly believe in,
    but experience directly
    to extract the light of our consciousness
    from the darkness of our subconscious egos
    & from that comes true wisdom and understanding
    and that really is a nice pic sending out a love vibration to all
    and its coming right back to you too sk
    may everyone be happy, blissful and in peace

    Easter is upon us once again
    April spreads her dove like wings
    Cathedral clean, heaven white
    Shimmering shards of eternal light
    Blinded by the albino faces
    Swept up by the inviting glances
    Engulfed by the smirks and smiles
    Enchanted by the music of soft rain
    The gentle come down after the storm
    Enjoying a cigar in the archway
    Staring at the figure across the road
    How quickly the blinds do.close
    The seemingly endless stream.of waters
    Over stones, under bricks, glistening
    Like snakes basking in the sunsplash
    If only Jesus was here at this moment
    To part the sea of sprawling pavement
    And miles of mundane grey.concrete
    With a technicolor sermon of good intentions

    DavidP | 10 April 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    here’s an interesting perspective on the bible
    that I have come across and some of you might find interesting
    from an esoteric christian mysticism perspective
    that it symbolically represents the internal development
    of man
    now that Jehovah character is some evil creator god
    not the real benevolent god that Jesus comes from
    although the real benevolent god I guess created the evil god…
    so the evil god could create this world
    a framework to awaken in
    the opposition between dark and light creates form
    and the conditions necessary to gain true wisdom and understanding
    such as why eye for an eye is inferior and will never win over love thy neighbour
    so that sparks of the benevolent god can individually self actualise
    so that god ultimately becomes a multiple unity rather than all alone i guess
    all done out of Love, to share the Love with other Individuals
    and all those characters in the bible exist within each of us
    we all have a Sodom & Gomorrah, a baptist, a Moses, the Romans, the Sadducees and the Pharisees, the Zealots, a Pontius Pilate, a Peter, a Paul, a Mary Magdalene and a Judas within etc
    potentially we could also have the Universal Christic force within too…
    once suitably prepared for it
    which helps the Initiate to awaken further and eventually merge with their higher Being to then merge back to the source fully awakened
    so they say
    not something to blindly believe in
    but potentially directly experience
    1. by eliminating our egos
    2. by using sex in the right way to create bodies in the higher dimensions
    3. by helping others spiritually
    Jesus said that anyone who wants to follow him should
    1. die to themselves
    2. pick up their cross daily
    3. and follow him
    there they say are the 3 keys to awakening
    try it and see what happens they say
    one who claims it works says they started out doing it to prove it doesn’t work but found esoteric things starting to happen and so kept going
    well the experiment is there for anyone to try should they so yearn

      As many of us do, we follow our moderator …as he completes the daily narrative. But this blog, this website, it unlocks the creative side of so many individuals. We become captivated with what (.) will share with SK and all of us, the playful banter between Steve and Eekie is added entertainment, the way Andy and Davem offer insight in direct ….blunt observations, how
      Colette can go from sharing amusing family
      anecdotes – than dazzle with spot on commentary, Boriah with his devilish wit, Veleska-PlumLady-Lara- Melissa….all with their subtle grace.
      A community unlike any other. I did not intentionally leave anyone out , there are, SK many fantastic contributions. And than an ‘anonymous’ will share a near perfect poem or commentary.
      I guess what I am trying to say is, did any of us really believe we would have the fortune of interacting with people from all walks of life, ages, sexes , religious backgrounds , political beliefs and artistic (music and otherwise) tastes….ALL in one place. I think if Steve was asked this question he would possibly say YES.
      Why do I believe that??? Because along with all of us who have built a solid foundation for friendships and acquaintances (so many Steve had brought together, unknowingly)….we always have stayed true to ourselves, our own individualities, and Steve could tell a little story or description of each one of the many contributors. Because , as important as Killer is to so many of our lives, in such a variety of ways….I , in my heart of hearts, believe WE are important ( maybe just as important ) to Steven.

      Peace + Love ….will continue to give onto us….Hope !

    Oh bullshit. Jesus was a wonderful human being but, ultimately, he was totally wrong. He genuinely thought he was living in the end times and his teachings reflected exactly that – how to be a better Jew in the short time left before God intervened, entered the world and brought an end to human history. Not how to live day-to-day for the next 2000 years.
    He fully believed that his sacrifice would indeed induce God’s intervention – hence his despair on the cross when it didn’t happen. I love and admire Jesus, but he was a fallible human being not a god or the literal Son of God.
    Some of you people really need to learn how to differentiate between the few authentic sayings of Jesus and the stuff that was attributed to him by the later Church. Do the sayings serve the Church (‘I am one with the Father’; ‘no-one comes to the Father but through me’)? This is probably later bilge. Do they jar with the practices of the Church (‘what you do to the least of men, you do to me’)? Probably goes back to Jesus himself.
    Christianity was basically the invention of St. Paul and I have no respect whatsoever for you ‘Christians’ who follow the teachings of Paul but not those of Jesus. This is the same Paul who said “Let me hear no more of this man, Jesus – let me tell you of Christ the King.” Christians, like Paul, worship the Risen Christ while ignoring the teachings of Jesus. Perhaps because Jesus’s message was solely for Jews – when asked if if gentiles were to be included in the coming kingdom, he said explicitly that his teachings were not for ‘the dogs’ who scrabbled for scraps beneath the master’s table. Not a Jew? Neither am I. Jesus said we were dogs and his teachings were not for us. It’s that simple. Doesn’t mean he was right about it, but you need to at least accept and deal with it.

      DavidP | 12 April 2012 at 3:05 pm #

      hey anonymous,
      I respect your view
      and I agree with some of what you have said
      but I think the whole story of Jesus and what he said is meant to be taken symbolically, even if things did literally happen, it was as a living symbol,
      to show symbolically what someone goes through at a certain stage of awakening.

      Our lives are short and when our life is over this world ends for us,
      therefore the end of the world is always nigh.
      And when we are working on transforming ourselves spiritually it is the end of old inferior ways as a requirement of it.

      The gentiles bit I take as referring to anyone not interested enough in spiritual awakening or not prepared for the rigors it requires, not that I think of such people as dogs but he spoke in an allegorical way so that people would understand something.

      And he explained why he always taught in parables and he basically explained there are two levels to his teaching.
      An exoteric one and an esoteric one.
      St Paul helped ensure some of the esoteric one would survive through the ages as it is contained within the exoteric one for those with eyes and hears to see and hear it.

      There’s also lots more that Jesus said which is not in the bible and can be found in the early christian texts such as the Nag Hammadi library, the more recently discovered Gospel of Judas and an excellent book called The Flight of the Feathered Serpent by Armando Cosani.

    Hi Steve, sorry to be off topic but you’ve stated a couple times that Peter Walsh was in his 20’s when he produced “Heyday.” There’s a youtube clip from a recent tour where you say he was 23 in ’85. On your blog about recording Heyday, you wrote he was 26 at the time. I was scratching my head when I heard 23, because that means he would’ve produced Peter Gabriel’s “Plays Live” when he was 21! According to wikipedia, he was born in 1950, making him 35 during Heyday sessions. Just wondering where you got the idea(?)…
