Musings


Once again my blog has been a bit redundant lately, and for the same reasons as I explained last time; namely, that I write mainly about my actual spiritual experiences, which remain at a premium at this moment in time (nearly a year without a decent out-of body; can you believe that?) Never mind, I can take this opportunity to share my musings with you and let you know what projects are on the horizon.

It has occurred to me that we all make judgements about “stuff”, situations and other people, and although these judgements are not always disparaging, they are nonetheless judgements, which serve no purpose unless we act on them in a positive way. What I mean is this, when we see something or hear about something that we perceive as being awful and not in line with all that is humanly decent, we judge it as being so, have a good old tut, maybe feel a degree of despair and sadness about it, but generally we don’t do anything else. In the case of a huge international incident you may be wondering what on earth you could do about it anyway. However…

There is another way of looking at things. We could take the incident and ask ourselves, “who am I in relation to that”? “How does it make me feel”? If the answer to both questions is that the said incident is not in line with our soul purpose (in other words, who I really am), then we may not be able to prevent something that has already happened, but there is something we can do.

Gandhi 2It was Gandhi who said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. So what we can do is this, at the first opportunity, having experienced something that did not resonate with who we really are, and having made that judgement, we can carry out a simple act of kindness. A simple act of kindness selflessly executed with no thoughts of reward is a positive reaction to the negative. Yes, we may not be able to change the individual incident, but the truth is that the only way we will ever achieve peace on earth is if the collective consciousness of the human race is transformed from the selfish state it is in now to the loving state, which is what it is at our deepest and purest level of being. All change must begin somewhere; and it must begin with individuals such as you and I adopting this way of thinking, instead of just accepting things the way they are.

There, that’s my musings over with.

So what’s coming up then? Well, I have a birthday this week; the big “Six Oh No”. To commemorate my 60th year and the miracle of life I will be offering the kindle version of my book “Universal Law – An Idiot’s Guide”, at the special promo price of 99p for seven days. More about that soon. There will also be another video project over the next few weeks with the theme, “Using Your Voice To Enhance Your Well-Being”. So watch this space and thanks as ever for supporting my work.

Universal Law: An Idiot’s Guide – Update


I’m proud to announce that Universal Law: An Idiot’s Guide is already available as a paperback in the US. It should also show up on Amazon UK within the next couple of days. I have not formatted for Kindle yet; and the official launch date remains 22 April, but the Kindle-ready cover can be seen below.

An Idiot’s Guide is a short book of only around 60 pages, hence the low price, but the aim of the book is to provide an insight, by way of a simple and concise guide, into how creation and the universe functions. It does in no way claim to be definitive, but it will be a valuable tool in helping you to attract more abundance into your life.

Universal Law: An Idiot’s Guide – Extract #3 And Cover


My latest book Universal Law: An Idiot’s Guide is moving along very quickly and very near completion. So, I’m really pleased to be able to post this short extract AND, at the same time, provisionally reveal the cover to you. I have already tweaked it slightly and there may be one or two further tweaks before I publish. But for now, here it is!

The Law of Perspective

This law really is simplicity personified. We are all always right from our own perspective, whatever the situation. What we believe becomes our reality. However, our perceived reality may not always be in line with our soul purpose; and this is where things can get tricky.

We have already stated a number of times that all the laws are interlinked in one way or another. So, if for example, our perceived perspective is quite bigoted then we are responsible for the vibration these views create and will one day have to deal with the consequences.

Things are never as they seem; always look beyond the surface for a truer picture.

Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion – Democritus

Universal Law – An Idiot’s Guide Extract #2


Here are a couple of extracts from my up and coming book Universal Law – An Idiot’s Guide, which as I type, is still on schedule to be published by the end of April. Hope you enjoy!

An Overview of Universal Law – What Exactly Is It?

self realizationUniversal Law is the means by which the universe functions. Also referred to as Spiritual Law, The Laws of the Universe, Natural Law or the Laws of Nature. It is a very precise and finely balanced mechanism that appears on the surface to be extremely complicated, but is in fact very simple.

The laws themselves can be split into three categories, each one a mirror image of the other; but unique nonetheless in its own way.

The first category of Universal Law is the laws that govern how we go about constructing the life we will lead once we take on the physical form. These laws are known as the Foundation Laws, and in the same way that foundations on Earth must be laid before a structure can be erected, so must we lay the Laws of Foundation before we incarnate.

The second category of Universal Law is the Redemption Laws that enable one to resolve outstanding issues from previous births and purify the spirit en route to Self- Realisation.

Finally, the third category of Universal Law is the Progression Laws. These are relevant to the level of progress one makes during each incarnation and ultimately determine if one attains liberation or remains within the cycle of birth and death.

The Law of Miracles

In our humanness we perceive a miracle to be the occurrence of a seemingly impossible event; for example, someone who is paralysed as the result of a terrible accident or debilitating illness, and who has been told they will never walk again, defying all the odds and doing just that. Of course, this is true; however, miracles are all this and much more.

Since the whole 2012 business (see my book Wisdom Bytes ISBN 978-1493614226) millions of people all over the planet are tangibly experiencing their own spiritual awakening, and it is only when we start to awaken that we understand that literally everything is a miracle. Simply being able to breathe or look up into the night sky and gaze upon the stars is truly miraculous. The more spiritually aware we become, the more we realise how the whole of creation is one huge miracle. We realise more and more that all is indeed God, and there is an almighty power beyond the scope of our human minds that is pulling the strings.

But the miracle of miracles is that there is nothing in the universe that is impossible. We only think in terms of the impossible because in our humanness we are unable to detach from the ego (duality) and embrace our Divinity. At the core of the Law of Miracles is the truth, that with an understanding of how creation works, all of us have the power to manifest our own miracles into our lives.

An Extract From My Up-Coming Book


SUNRISE - MAHA SHIVARATRI 2013Here is an extract from my up-coming book Universal Law – An Idiot’s Guide

The purpose of the book is to explain how the universe functions and how this functionality affects the day-to-day lives of human beings. Of course, in line with all my other publications, it is my intention to make it as simple as possible to understand. Hope you enjoy this extract.

The Law of Karma

Another very, very simple law to understand; “karma” is a Sanskrit* word, meaning action. The action in this case is the action of cause and effect. Of course, the age-old adages of “what goes around comes around” and, “you reap what you sow” are other ways to explain the Law of Karma. However, the trouble with those sayings is they imply that karma means punishment; and nothing could be further from the truth.

A more correct way to explain this law is that we are responsible for all our actions in accordance with cause and effect. Because creation moves in cycles it stands to reason that whatever we create through our actions, be it negative or positive, will at some point return to us and we will have to deal with it.

The universe functions in a very non-judgemental way, in the same way that a tree will give shade and bear fruit for anyone, regardless of race or social status, therefore karma is simply the action of cause and effect as applied to humans.
