unless you really believe
rudy neuman(n):
pulling the strings all these years
a conspiracy of corrupt bankers
giving us the wars we had to have
those blueblood honchos dictating from their ivory ivied towers
fixing the race
calling the shots
hanging in the back
pushing you into the fray
afraid themselves
afraid of themselves and us
their high and lonely destiny it was
to meddle in the affairs of the riff raff
and to keep us happily enslaved
to their fucked up paradigm
they invent and dole out diseases and cures
they dream up reasons for us to fight
theyre not fighting
they never did
why should they?
they gave us our pasture
we graze happily
they feed us and harvest as they need to
yes you know the bunch im talking about
people in high places
they gave us television
and then they filled it with brainwashing soap operas
they let you drink drink drink
but suppress the smoking of the herb
why is that?
because the herb lets you see the hilarity of the whole she-bang
then you become what they call “amotivational”
which means you aint buying in to their bullshit quite so easily
yes
nothing like the herb to tilt your perspective
until you understand the great fake society
and the joke it is all based on
history will judge us hilarious
the herb can see it right now
next they take away the lsd and mushrooms etc
these also interfere with programming of the sheep
in the 60s citizens of the u.s. were virtually deemed unamerican
and had long jail sentences for using these substances
because why?
theyre bad for us?
they are so bad that its better to go to jail than to take them?
a “free” society
taking lsd was tantamount to some kinda spiritual treachery
just like not supporting the tragic vietnamese war
like you werent on your own side
classic propaganda!
but what was at the heart of this fear of the hallucinogenics
a realization that every now and then
the people taking them
would stumble upon rare and beautiful thoughts
and suddenly
not only was this whole thing hilarious
but it was transparent and glowing
it was filled with this stuff called love
love was life
and life was in love with love and life
and it brought motion from the stillness
and it brought sound into the silence
and it permeated matter
and it was invisible and almost not there
unable to be measured
it defied itself
and everything sprang into being
and then everything else
and you sit by the shores of a gentle lake
and the ripples flow towards you
and you feel the even handed ness of the water
its simple geometric grace
its flowing uncurling elegance
the sun runs along each round rim of the wavelets
the sand flashes gold glints as it dances beneath the surface
the ripples
the sand
the water
the sky
its all moving to this same doo-dah
i dont know what to call it
rhythm i suppose
but there was no real sound
except the soft percussive lapping of the lake
and the reeds are bouncing to the rhythm too
you can see that now
the reeds and the birds
theyre all locked into this thing
how was it you never noticed before?
you start to smile
why are you smiling?
why are you grinning from ‘ere to ‘ear?
because you realise
what do you realise?
it cant be put in one sentence
its a million books look
and to take it one line at a time
will diminish its splendour
but think
unified field
whatever that means to you in your heart
who cares what your brain will say now
unified field
the ripples
the sand in motion
suspended as if by magic
the golden flashes of tiny microns
the dreamy aqua colour of the water itself
the reeds are swaying in time
their heads bob and imply sentience
god
its all sentient
the herons hang in the sky
their wings beat like bass drums
boom boom boom in the liquid air
the great birds
animated by life herself
these perfect flying creatures with free will
cruising the skyways as man and wife
diving like darts into the lake
their feathers marvellously engineered to keep out water
as well as to facilitate their movement thru thin air
the herons are miracles of loving design
and they are supposed to be flying exactly there
right now
and you truly understand
the life/love that has orchestrated this little scene
for your benefit
and anyone else too
who had but eyes to listen
and ears to see
no thats no mistake
because you realise the sounds have colours
and the colours are all making sounds
this folds in on itself so delightfully
that you take a whole second
to become lost in its myriad mazes
and you smile
because you understand
and also because you see
youre included in this equation
youre a cog in the mechanism
you put your finger in the lake
and your ripples rush out to join the incoming ones
and you see youre sposed to be here
youre sposed to part of this
theres a deep reason meaning
and everythings ok
its all in balance
the natural world in tune
satori must be something like this

    A couple of days ago a pair of eastern rosellas returned to my back yard for the first time in…(?) months(?).I was looking out the kitchen window when they arrived and it seemed that they were there just for me.That was how it felt.They had been missed and came back just at the right time.It was a moment in the midst of washing the dishes. The blog today captures that feeling.The rosellas were getting about their business just as I was mine (theirs did seem rather more interesting, I must say).

    Steve, I was watching the MySpace live Church videos, I must say I really like your performance cause you play raw and angry, full of fierce. I see a man tired of a lot of things, a mature and angry man which is somewhat good. I like that, really, but please, can you make an effort and sing in tune? You´re always high, that´s is good for a punk band but not for The Church. Go heavy metal, but no punk, please. Anyway, glad to see you´re fierce!!!

    How does Sk do it ! In addition to the celestal bird and nature passages the blog was right on in reference to a handful of international bankers and huge corporations being in charge of the entire world. There are probably cures for many deadly diseases and incapicitations. But the tyrants of the world would lose power if millions get healed. Boston had a great song called “Corporate America” that addressed some of these issues. Slaughterhouses and prisons and wars will always flourish as long as the powers stay intact. A very fallen world made bearable by what’s left of nature and by escaping via sedation, elucidation and hallucinations. I survived the self-imposed ice pick through my head fantasy. Al Gore and OPrah helped me. “Isidore”- I hope there’s one more CD to come !

    HARMONIC COUNTERPOINT

    Little drips of yin are starting to drop into my big pot of yang. Again.

    Why is the monk smiling?

    At the carnage
    At the blood rivers
    Rape upon rape
    Tears in the flesh fabric
    Ruptures boiling open
    Rot in the dark forest
    Squalor in the bright city
    Talons piercing fur
    Screeches in the night
    The fear of a child
    The crying old man
    Regrets, like sores
    Tears of pus
    The spasms of cattle
    Gardens of bones
    The temple of Kali
    A mansion of wasps
    Tumours and splits
    Raw knots of hunger
    The silage reek
    The cruel ocean
    The fallen nestling
    Empty lakes
    Little acts of betrayal
    Industrial mass production
    Failure and abandonment
    Eras ending
    People forgetting
    Images fading
    Darkness descending
    Ultimate black
    Silence

    Silence

    Silence

    Why is the monk smiling?

    No, I think the vigilance over LSD and the use of hallucinogens (and drug use in general) is driven by other things, like parents’ concern for their children. I’d have some definite concerns about my children taking LSD, or any other drugs, and all the piss that flows in its wake. I know as much as you clearly love your children you do too. So I imagine there was a lot of pressure on the government early on when drugs heavily hit the youth scene because people were fairly freaked out about about their sons and daughters gobbling it all up so readily. I can remember my parents being fairly vigilant in their stance against drugs back then because of that very fear. Fear that their kids were going to fuck up their long term health (which it will) and fuck up their lives (which it does). So I imagine a lot of people felt that way, and still do.

    I’m know you wouldn’t be crazy at the thought of your daughters partaking, even in the herb, in the presence of the dangers that lurk these days behind closed doors. So that’s pretty much the way most parents feel, I would guess.

    Anyway, for all your vigilance on animal rights, which I totally agree with, I think the same sort of vigilance should be applied to the utter disaster that drugs, both producing, selling, and using have on human lives, up and down the production line. You don’t have to think too hard what all that entails, and especially on children, the most innocent of our creatures.

    So, you do what you want, I won’t judge, as I have no right to do so, but I don’t think people that don’t feel “groovy” about the drug culture should feel bad about feeling that way either, because their intentions are probably care, love, and concern for someone.

    Most of us love you though — even on those occasions where we aren’t quite sure what the hell you’re talking about. For me most of the thoughts you present fall into one of three categories: 1)Yes!!! I’m soooo happy someone else feels this way!! 2) Hmm…never thought about it like that before. I’ll have to give that some thought. and 3) Well, it works for you. 😉

    One of the little glitches/wonderful spotlight casting effectsof being blessed with the gift of articulation,deep thought,and the art of expression is……….that we say and do things ,that other people only think,and only ever think to themselves…for fear of some kind of moral or social exile…..and I actually did Not see any negative notions towards “American”people….just one toward the justice{?}system of the U.S. in the 60’s,{and naturally …still,most of the worldis expected to cop it in silence,and be content.} if that’s how they’d like to deliver their control’s guise}I find that the quadrant of folks usually offended by honesty,and “a good reality check”, leave the scene of their “shocking encounter” surprised,in a deeper level of thought,and attempting to brush the chips off their shoulders…..much love,and just a wish for peace,and communication here,instead of argument,and hostility….a lovely day to you all…and sue let’s sing that together.xxx!ta for the “airworm” Mr.Kilbey!{apparently that’s the official word for a song that’s stuck in yer head}love,as always,genx xxxxx

    Hi Blandandro, I can’t believe you’re advising sk “not to sing like a punk rocker” from watching a couple of video clips that always sound nothing like the “real” live experience!! Ha Ha what a joke! Of course he can’t sing every song EXACTLY like it sounds on record, I don’t think any artist can for a whole concert unless you’re Milli Vanilli!! And that he “looks fierce with a sad look in his eyes”, I was sitting close up at one of those gigs and he didn’t come across like that at all, he was jolly and prancing around all over the stage, even cracking a few jokes.
    Some people!!!
    Love to you sk anyway,

I wonder why it was you chosen to be so intelligent and see the world in such a way . you are truly before your time. going back twenty years to the poem on ” starfish ” to see and feel the way you do AND EXPRESS the way you do what a gift. many times you complain of your lack of wealth and how the lawyers took away the milkyway. everything you have done will forever be remembered. and for this you are rich beyond your wildest dreams.

    The bigger picture…the (not-so)hidden beauty in life just beyond the blinders that the folks in charge of the governments and media place on us…The first time I did Lsd I saw the faulty foundation of everything in the world I had previously thought was solid and strong. It was a very harsh experience, nearly did my head in. First time I smoked herb, I saw how simple an idea love an appreciation for the things you normally may overlook can give you more happiness than almost anything else. One of my best and most awakening experiences. Im not advocating nor decrying the use of any certain drug, I only know that they have done great things for my view of the world, not always positive, but certainly not always negative–there’s alot of beauty to behold.

    To the above John, I sincerely hope that parents have done their jobs in raising their children with the proper personal strength to think for themselves, without the influence of anyone else and with enough smarts to be able to keep themselves out of any real danger. If this is done, to attempt to shelter a person from the world is to do them a great injustice. After all, we learn from our experiences don’t we? To not allow that freedom cripples a person. Too often parents project their own fears onto their kids and I think that’s incorrect. Please do not confuse “concern” with “fear”. Don’t attempt to “know” how anyone else would feel about their kids using drugs and don’t put your hang-ups on other people, least of all your own children. It certainly didn’t work for my parents.

    it cant be helped..
    “all the love in the world
    cant stop the rain from falling”

    You know the vision behind your words make the real world go round..
    Ive been rumbling with Maya again..

    “A salamander
    rushes to flame
    to be destroyed..
    imaginary creatures
    are trapped in birth
    on celluloid…
    The Carpet Crawlers
    heed their callers..
    You gotta get in
    to get out” -Genesis

    According to researchers, we lost a 20 million yr old species of dolphin to extinction by human hand..
    It really hits hard how horrible animals are treated. and truly how bad we often treat ourselves
    it all feels real fucking heavy..

    I really appreciate all your words today SK..
    It is a beautiful dream to be conscious, to feel all suffering, to persevere in spite of the ignorance and cruelty, To love the Lord and honor from within..
    We have to feel love and push it through the fear and uncertainty, through the jaded eye of mechanized inhumanity..

    So many instances of suffering and flashes of Maya..
    I pray the light shines through..
    Your words are truly divine..
    Resounding in real spirit..

    thanks for making the ever present moment clear..
    it feels heavy tho…

    Om Tat Sat Om = Unified field

    peace..

    John:
    “children, the most innocent of our creatures”

    Drugs are part of life’s curriculum… and to deprive your children of the choice to consume or not consume is to deprive them of their God-given liberty.

    You cannot make a choice for another, be they child or adult, without disempowering them and delaying their evolutionary process…

    Beautiful blog, Steve!
