Amelia

Oh beautiful flower so delicate and pure that blossoms for all to behold.With a breath you are gone and yet you were here or was it an illusion that we held you, What lesson we learn is yet still unclearShould we hold on to the memory or wish you near Should we remember the pain and all that we feared.As the years pass by the pain remains neither weakened or subdued. Oh how I miss all that you never had. I’ll remember you as his rose.Kind RegardsAndrew.See More

Wasted

Posted on July 10, 2017 at 0:00 7 Comments

My sons childhood friend was brutally murdered on Friday night. It is hard to believe that it happened. As he left a Birmingham pub a number of young people surrounded him. One of them stabbed him in the heart and he bled to death. He was twenty six years old. I can't get it out of my thoughts, why would any one be that cruel. Why as humans do we do this to each other. I've spent most of the weekend comforting my son, he went on Holliday with Daniel the friend that lost his life, two weeks…

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage… Continue

Winter

Posted on December 24, 2016 at 0:59 0 Comments

So cold in the UK at the moment. You really can see it's winter. I find as I get older I'm less able to cope with the cold weather. I enjoy looking at the pattern of the ice on my window, but having to get it off the windscreen of my car is very difficult. My hands feel like they have frozen and I long for the warmth of summertime.

As it's the Holliday period with Christmas upon us I have taken two whole weeks off work. Saved my leave this year and really will appreciate the break. All… Continue

Buddha Quote

Posted on December 9, 2016 at 0:11 0 Comments

My heart, thus knowing, thus seeing, was released from the fermentation of sensuality, released from the fermentation of becoming, released from the fermentation of ignorance. With release, there was the knowledge, 'Released.' I discerned that 'Birth is ended, the holy life fulfilled, the task done. There is nothing further for this world.
The Buddha.

No I don't think that young people automatically vote for the left. Opinion polls have shown that Corbyn is popular amongst younger voters. This is probably due to the fact that they haven't really had the hype that surrounded the left in the 70's and 80's. Many older people are still broad left. ANd you still have the young conservatives.
I'm not sure that for me personally as I've got holder have become more conformist tending to go more to the centre ground. Not so long ago I would have been much happier with such a candidate, and a return to clause 4 etc. So more a reflection on me I think. However as I said today I voted labour. As I did when I first joined the Labour Party 33 years ago.

Thanks, Amdrew. That's interesting. Why do you think that young people tend to favour the left and older people the right? Do you think people move right as they age or is this a difference between one generational group and another. Are the young people who vote for Corbyn today still going to be voting Labour when they are fifty?

today in the UK we have a general election. The candidates have very little to offer. 1970’s Labour, the austerity mania of the conservatives and a lib dem who’s name I don’t even remember.
Up until last week I thought I wouldn’t even vote as the only candidate I could have voted for was the Tory and that would go against a lifelong belief in socialism.
After the last week of watching them campaign and the young people who are following labour I decided to opt for 70’s labour.
Maybe I just got brainwashed by the new labour spin doctors and this made me move away from the left wing ideals that originally made me join labour.
Could just be I got older and less rebellious

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
