oh boy
seems i lucked out
n actually wrote something “sage” yesterday
so today
i have the choice
keep going with the sage
profane as usual
now aint that a human thing to do
you know its this…or its that
when really
the sacred doth indeed contain the profane
and surely vice versa
last night after enjoying the ripened fruits of conjugal love
i fell into a deep deep slumber
from which my wife couldnt wake me
eventually she must have fallen asleep
and we were lying back to back
in my dream arcs of emerald green energy bound us
the energy connected us at every nadi
there was intelligence behind the energy
soothing calm
it was everywhere
awake during sleep
i dreamed up deep of this feeling
it was like we were within a cage of pure shooting light
i could feel my wife sleeping so deep and peacefully
just beyond her the baby
love taking on the form of flesh
our passion now personified
blissfully knocked out in some naughty little girl world
in her dreams scarlet wades through nutella marshes
with her dora backpack full of the littlest pets
the night was milky grey
a warmish breeze barely made the blinds move
in my dream julian the magician appeared
there he was quite matter o fact
its all happening , isnt it he said
he was hyper real
he was superimposed on the other thing
like a sports commentator might appear on top of the footy
julian hung around for a while
i could see the weave of his rust coloured jumper
i could see him eating wattle seed yoghurt
n having a cheeky laugh
its all happening, isnt it he said again
i said to him
are you somewhere travelling down the vine
are you floating in some dmt sky?
maybe i am he said
whys it all happening? i ask him
julian likes people to do their own thinking though
he doesnt trot out some old stupid answer
he looks at me
he says
i know you
i know who you are
am i ready? i ask
he laughs a little cruelly at this
no he says
my questions start bubbling out
why not? when will i? how should it?
hes looking at me again
slightly shaking his head
why ask me? he telepaths at me
all the answers are with you
in you
in everyone
julian grins and pisses off
to whatever strange plane he was hanging out in
the energy grid was still connecting me n my wife
its true i said to myself
isnt it?
what? said my stupid “left” brain
the answer?
no said mcsage
the buddha of eastern suburbia
there are no answers
there are no questions
there just is
there is an “is”
and it just “is”
oh said left lobe
and they both went back to sleep
both wife and i
very recharged this morning
mmmm yes
thank you to all concerned!

    Stop wasting your time blogging, and start working on new material.

    Saw MWP play last nite, he was in fine form and good humour. Got his new ep. Song playing by Tiare was on in the background, she is very talented. Heard someone there talking about the Church saying they won’t be playing this year.
    Hope I heard wrong, but with Marty going o/s soon it may be true. I’m crossing my fingers that it isn’t true, as the last time I saw the band seems years ago (even though it was with the Divinyls). Can only hope and pray that you will maybe welcome Spring/Summer with a tour.

    Don’t forget Marty’s big 50 birthday is coming up soon. He told everyone last night, sounded like he can’t wait to get there.

    Have a good weekend, take care.

    Peace & love,

    You don’t need to leave your room.
    Remain sitting at your table and listen.
    Don’t even listen, simply wait.
    Don’t even wait.
    Be quite still and solitary.
    The world will freely offer itself to you.
    Unmasked, it has no choice.
    It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.

    i wish i had the kinds of insights and experiences that you have, steve…dunno, must be doing something wrong, maybe…
    if you don’t hear from me in the next week or so, i’ll be out in the wilds of western queensland again, this time in a little town near cameron’s corner called hungerford…a national park near there and with all of the rain they’ve been having, thousands of pelicans and other birds have migrated inland to reap the benefits before the wetlands turn back into a dustbowl…should be absolutely amazing…
    love always, your outback explorer..

    …just harking back to yesterday’s blog that night I was driving to forestville with the church’s el momento acoustic album playing through my car speakers and the track ‘all i know’ was going as i was hooning down’n’up the roseville bridge and ‘just like you i am a wanderer wandering wandering running all my previous lives…’ was blasted through me as the sharp cool wind blew in and the large dark cliff-faces could be made out to the side and it was…well, a ‘deep’ moment, one of those magic moments, your voice spoke to me in volumes and to a place very very deep within me

    …lovin’ the journey, rb

    …but i sorta wish i could’ve gone to marty’s gig might be busy next week too ahh

    Just lovely… lovely, lovely, lovely.

    Growing up I used to say, “that anything is is magic”

    Perhaps it is even proof of magic, and not that slight-of-the-hand variety either, nope. I’m talkin’ ’bout the real shit. The good stuff.

    A sharp-faced Andromedan deftly bluffs us, his evenings spent leaning hard into corners of recollection, seeking out whysnwherefores and spinning his crystal discs; reverse and for’d, soph and antisoph, ad lib infinatum. Tendrils and wires plugging and piercing all the soft things here, charging and draining each other in turn; there was something he was going to tell you but you turn away at the crucial moment, your attention sapped, other songs playing quietly in the background. Out the window you can’t see the stars for the orange sodium flare of the city, but they sure as hell can see you, deliberating over this direction or that, making your silent choices, stubbing out each discursive cinder into the ashes of the last.
