Covid 22
Symptoms...
snot,
shortness of breath,
sneezing,
chest pain,
headaches,
dizziness,
visual distortions,
can't focus my eyes or my ears,
irregular sleep patterns,
confusion,
apathy & restlessness,
bouts of euphoria and outwardly narrating my inward thoughts, like Yoda!

These symptoms started over a week ago, however; I've been living with most of these issues my whole life???
Eexhausted all the time

Every war is economic.
Wars are often fought in the name of justice,
but they are all waged to secure economic resources.

The mob
The mob is single minded!
The more people feel justified; the more likely they are to commit extreme acts of cruelty.
Mob rule, when you join a group; you join the clan.

Soul trap! 2
Why allow the body to trap the soul; if we wish to transcend this place and return to the light?

(Stellar therapy ?)
What use is this body?

Clueless?
Is it ignorance or apathy; that's destroying our place in the world today?

Nobody knows, nobody cares?
The salesperson, the global sociopath, consumer heaven and consumer paradise.
Only a fool could have discovered such purls of wisdom.
People often forget that there is a process of learning; we learn as we grow.
Advice is good but there can only be one set of hands on the Rubiks cube at any one time.

For the love of you
I went down,
to the Holy land,
to make amends,
I broke out the silence,
I let out the lambs.

I built them a wall,
I divided the land.
In God's name,
I did it all for you.

I set fire to their temples,
I tore down their robes,
I poisoned their hearts,
I beat them with stones.

In gods name;
I did it all for you.

I bathed them in tears,
I made them forget,
I filled them with grief,
I plied them a debt.

In gods name;
I did it all for love;
For the love of you!

Two dreams
Purcy Flaherty Nov 2021
Hush now;
come to bed,
dream with me,
take me in your arms,
turn off the light;
We are:
two hearts,
two minds,
two thoughts,
one rhythm,
one time,
one ***,
two singers,
two artists,
two players,
two creators;
one love.
So hush now;
come to bed,
dream with me,
take me in your arms,
turn off the light; my love.

Evolution.
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
We are all evolved from the same microbe;
A microbe which evolved into every known species, using just two dozen ingredients; drawn from the same chemical soup.
(We are related to every living thing)

Each and every species is evolving at it's correct / specific survival rate, yet the more we humans progress, the more distance we choose to put between us and our fellow lifeforms; often choosing to alter their evolutionary progress, not for our own survival! but for bit coin, vanity or prestige.
**** our fellow lifeforms; I want a packet of crisps!

Recycling.
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
If you don't produce it, you won't have to recycle it!
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
A small group sociopathic economic organisations and individuals, that advocate, or push by virtually any means possible; the production, distribution and consumption of things that you're convinced you want; but you actually don't need.

Things seductively labelled and wrapped like a gift in expensive everlasting triple plastic; to be opulently torn discarded like nothing more than mere consumer pith and peal, every day by you and yours truly.

*** noodle anyone? Would you like a bag with that?

Brief interruption.

Coitus interruptus, withdrawal,

Rudeness
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
Telling someone they are rude is often a self fulfilling prophecy.
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
I'm a standby lover,
with all the duties of a partner;
but without a proper invitation.
I'm your safety net,
a dollar in your pocket,
the also-ran.
You can bench me;
bend me,
ghost me for awhile,
lead with breadcrumbs,
make me smile,
save me for a rainy day,
tuck me up and play away,
And when you've found the one you're after,
Will your heart be filled with love and laughter?

I truly hope so...

Historians
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
We only surmise, or form ideas from what we've been told! as "history is always written and preserved by the victors"

Theorems are written in a world where information has always been the super power.
We entrust our history to intellectuals with egos, and lucrative careers.
These people often creat and reinforce our perception of our past merely to empower their future.
The majority of these people are entitled, well funded and have their income and reputations to protect!
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
The value of a good artist or musician.

Artists rarely make back the hours and cash invested in their trade.

A lot depends upon them, and the how much their culture values their particular trade, and art form.

Globally art, literature, music and song is deeply embedded within cultures; as such: an artists trade is often valued highly, similar to that of a plumber, electrician, painter, doctor etc, It's a craft, a skill with positive cultural significance. (A real job)

Here in Blighty, it's not regarded with the same significance.

Immortality.
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
Every killer is on the evolutional route to life and the key to a long life is in deaths commonality.
I've no doubt that obstacles such as cancer and diabetes will be the key to our longevity. not because we eradicate them, but because we include them in some way.
It's about re-interpreting what developments your seeing.

Prejudice & intolerance.
Purcy Flaherty Jul 2021
Elitism and dogma are deeply seated within all societies.
It's much easier to shun, or attack outsiders and remain safely entrenched in our own truths.

Perseverance, inclusiveness, honesty, kindness and welcoming each and every truth is the key to cultural success.
Celebrate the good.
Real change cannot be forced with militancy, and it's painfully slow, so much so; that the effects can only be seen from one generation to the next.

Anger is not a force for good.

(Satire & comedy is often an affective barometer for the things to come.)
Peace.

Gypsy mother.
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
My mother would often suggest I sleep on it.
Presumably mulling over all the possible outcomes whilst dreaming.

We were raised with anxiety, my mother was a live wire; adrenaline primed our hearts to avoid judgment, or catastrophe in an uncertain future.

At this very moment I am  living in the now, and in love with all living things, no-longer afraid; no longer clinging to the illusion of control, in an uncertain future.

Beermat blues
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely!
She said I am so lonely, lonely, lonely,
I  could die.
My mouth was dry,
There ain't sweetness here in paradise

Baby, Baby, baby, baby!
She said baby, baby, baby,
I  could die.
My mouth was dry,
But there ain't sweetness here in paradise.

Love, love, love, love!
Love, love, love,
I kissed you hard,
My mouth's was dry,
There ain't sweetness here in paradise.

"Read all about it!"
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
I never read the newspapers! or have any confidence in the news or it's politics.

I don't see any point voting for a government or a system; in which a corrupt media spins personality over principles for its financial gain.

I have little or no interest in watching a politician dance, stumble, have a bad hair day, tweet the wrong message, or buy a new sweater!

The media is not, and never has been in the pursuit of truth; it's about spin, political power and financial gain. (Selling papers)

Do you really think that newspaper moguls present enlightenment to the masses? Seriously?

The Daily mail & The mirror is owned by:
Jonathan Harmsworth the 4th Viscount Rothermere.
His net worth is: 1.19 billion.

The Times newspaper is owned by Lachlan Murdoch
His net worth is: 23.2 Billion.

The sun newspaper is owned by Sir Rupert Murdoch, Knight Commander of St Gregory.
His net worth 22.4 Billion.

The Independent is owned  by Evgeny Lebedev
His net worth is: 1.1 Billion
Sultan Muhammad Abuljadaye
His net worth 100.3 billion.

The Evening Standard is owned by Byam Shaw
Net worth 37.1 million.

Your local rag offers storys about knife crime, and what's happening in the soaps, interspersed with elitist policies; fed to you in bite size tabloids;  by hungry billionaires.

Fish & chips anyone?

Soul song
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
Lord I’m tired, Lord I’m weary and my soul is yours to keep!
Lord I’m tired, Lord I’m weary but my soul is yours my soul is weak!
I’ve been hitting on the drink, taking drugs, ******* women lord and fighting in the clubs.
I got two arms, I got two legs, I got a body lord, and I got a head,
That makes me human, that makes me human, that makes me human lord, but that an’t kind!
That makes me human, that makes me human, that makes me human lord, but that an’t kind!
I like to think that’s there’s a light, in the deepest darkest night,
Somewhere I might lay my head and not wake up cold and dead,
Somewhere I’ll find peace of mind some place lie paradise,
Do you hear?
This is an old soul song I wrote.

Christian piety
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
My mother often said:
"Sitting in church doesn’t make you any more Christian; than sitting in the garage makes you a car!"
(Some old quote)

We are judged by our actions and by our beliefs.

Understanding this combination reveals ones true spirituality and personality.
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
Just a few thoughts.

Whilst colonialism by waring nations have steadily decreased across the globe.

(((Or until the next euro-war kicks off)))

Corporate colonialism has steadily increased, seizing power in society, using it's social and economic influence to extract resources; with little or no concern for the worlds fellow inhabitants.
That's because corporate colonial power has no stake, or little compassion for the welfare of indigenous populations or local economy's; over resources.

The super elite are so detached from reality, that they literally live in Alyssum; requiring just a small workforce and an army to realise production or the acquisition of global assets.

Our worlds leaders seemingly avoid all the negative consequences of their complicity in return for there compliance.

The welfare of the surplus population, especially those too young, or too old to work is unprofitable; and as such, is poorly funded, just enough to pacify the masses and stave off civil-unrest.

Globally there is a constant and gradual increase in funding pharmaceutical, mining and military sectors, with the support of the media machine; and a gradual decline in funding environmental schemes, health, and education.

(There may be big trouble ahead)
Nothing has changed for thousands of years.

Cultural fantasy
Purcy Flaherty Jun 2021
Cultural fantasy.

we are all fantasists, with a skeptical façade; for cultural appearances.

Most of us desire wealth, power, ***, love, or improbable things and are fantasists as regards our own reality.

Ironically those of us that openly desire the improbable are labelled dreamers, and those that cling to a collective cultural reality are deemed level headed.

In conclusion we are all fantasists, with a skeptical façade; for cultural appearances, each choosing to remain swathed in our own egos, desires and self beliefs.
Fact or fantasy and its relevance?

There's nothing special about my greedy utopian dream:
I'm not off grid, or more ecco' friendly;
I still order luxury goods from overseas, hoard, engage in cliques, use the internet, dream about my own bit of land, claim any benefits I can.

I use the same drugs, minerals, roads, hospitals, banks, and I pollute the same air; with the same stink of self righteous elitism; because just like everyone else; I am unique!

(Off-grid irony)
There is nowhere off grid, our homes and our freedoms are all part of this flimsy construct ffs

Media moguls
(The big six)

Media moguls, farming us like baboons, leaving just a flicker of our human potential; enough to consume.

A bitter machine, manufacturing and selling the illusion of fear and failure; ******* with our subconscious, spinning and expanding this dark material world; for nothing more than prestige and false profits.

There is more to life than this!
Wake up Space monkeys!
A constant stream of negativity, greed and desire.

Concepts can be expressed in many ways; and are mostly explored using words, yet words convey the smallest fraction of our true thoughts and feelings.

Vivid Dream 28th Feb 2020
Purcy Flaherty Mar 2021
My vivid dream 28th Feb 2020

Since the perception of time, ancient malevolent entities; 'The stars makers', have been corrupting our souls with 'want'; Collectively this 'want' forms the material world, which serves to suppress the inner spark; the energy contained within the human soul.

Good souls gradually struggle free from the confines of 'want' or the material world, thus releasing and returning the inner spark to the origin of light.

Dark souls remain within the material world reborn as the 'Dark-echo' continues to expand the physical universe, thus slowly terraforming the multiverse into a single living entity.

Dark matter is the fabric of life, and the womb of our dark souls.

The origin of light is a place of contentment beyond the perception of any fearful, material being; clinging to mortality.

That's why freeing oneself from the confines of the material world, and returning to the 'origin of light, is a leap of faith.
The multiverse, and the fear of loss explained to me in a dream.

Conservation & Politics
Purcy Flaherty Feb 2021
Conservation lol...
We continue to **** the natural environment for little more than vanity and prestige;
The clever culture of taking what we need from our own sustainable environment, has now been replaced with greed and a class system that's based on:
FALSE PROFIT- (imaginary figures)

Inevitable the day will come, when there's no one left to boast; who killed the most fish, cut down the most trees, dug the biggest hole, ground down the largest mountain, or who ****** up the most oil.

And our small place in the great scheme of things will have become untenable;  a few fossils may remain as evidence, as to our meaningless, childish and destructive pursuits.

However natural justice will eventually prevail, as the world continues with its 50 million cleaning cycle and our petulant place within the world will have little or no meaningful significance.

(So my advice to you is: forget all this social climbing, find something that you enjoy doing, and do it till your dead)

Sticky labels.
Purcy Flaherty Feb 2021
'Sticky labels'

Each time we redefine a freedom, we simultaneously creat a new boundary and another cultural and social restraint.

Boundaries are often useful:
Healthy individuals are innately aware of what is right and what is wrong, because we have collectively encouraged them to flourish with love and understanding.

Unhealthy individuals cannot discern right from wrong, and a prison has never nurtured anything good!

Why not invest in our neighbours right from the START; pulling our communities together honestly, and kindly with open hearts.

GOOD THINGS grow from freedom.

Children of the light.
Purcy Flaherty Feb 2021
We rearranged matter with our minds,
We made our children our home,
There's no singularity,
No negative vibes,
No distance between us,
Just a dream as we walk in the light,
Immortal; yet entangled in our dark material world,
There's infinite time to learn and move on,
We can't hold the matter in our hands, or our hearts,
Fear and materiality is not the true reality.
Let it go!
Nothing is truly destroyed, it's simply rearranged; just like our dreams.
I explained something similar to this; to my friend Richard Stanier back in 1985 and nothing has changed.
when I asked the question what is more beautiful for Milky Way or planet Earth?

Same old story
Purcy Flaherty Feb 2021
Our small story; is just a small line or chapter in everyones story.

We are each busy; listening, narrating, taking notes, leafing through the pages; losing, following the plot, whilst searching for the happy ending.

It turns out this immortal story ends where it begins, with most of us spinning round and round, simply chasing our tails aboard the carousel of love.
Synopsis:
We are each of us in a relationship with everyone and everything.
Monogamy is an allusion, and loyalty is earned with honesty and respect.

Covid 19, A symptom too far
Purcy Flaherty Feb 2021
For the last few thousand years, humans have continued to trespass, venture into inhospitable areas, burning down, meddling, or just poking around in natures complex, natural chemical laboratories.

The more humans encroach upon the natural world; the more exposed we are to a highly complex eco system; a system that has evolved over millions of years to support a huge diversity of life in which humans play a tiny part.

As a species we struggle to survive the mosquitoes, not to mention the trillions of other diverse insects, animals, fawner and flora we are now disrupting and introducing to our populations, is it any wonder so many of us are dying.

This disease is a symptom of our consumption and lack of contentment?

A global class system that values its citizens based on their economic wealth.

A global economic cast system based on:
3rd -  How much disposable income an individuals has.
2nd - How much an individual can consume.
1st - How much consumption an individual can generate.

Peoples privileges are then banded appropriately, based on their position within the economic carousel.

There are also millions of people that don't have, food shelter, security or drinking water.
(These are rarely mentioned)
