I thought that I would share with you another one of my interests. I’m a very lazy musician, I love guitars but 6 strings is too many! I have acquired a custom built, 3 string cigar box guitar. It was made by a real craftsman here in the UK. I’m still getting to grips with it, as it is a bit smaller than I anticipated and I’m struggling a bit still, to stop the box moving as I’m playing. But I’m getting there with it slowly. I’m also currently waiting to have a crystal glass bottleneck slide custom made, but the virus situation has put a spanner in the works with that for the time being. Below are some pics and a video; don’t forget your ear plugs!
Whatever you are doing at this moment, I hope you are keeping safe. I have decided not to make a personal comment on the current situation because the world and his cat has either suddenly become an expert on all things medical, or they are giving their take and perspective on the spiritual reasons and implications for what’s happening. Instead I am going to share, what I believe, are a couple of lovely things with you that I found on the internet. Firstly, I found this on the facebook page of Swindon Spiritualist Centre and Healing Sanctuary (author unknown):
A teacher brought balloons to school and asked the children to blow them all up and then each write their names on their balloon. They tossed all the balloons into the hall while the teacher mixed them from one end to the other. The teacher then gave them 5 minutes to find the balloon with their name on it. The children ran around, looking frantically but as the time ran out nobody had found their own balloon. Then the teacher told them to take the balloon closest to them and give it to the person who’s name was on it. In less than 2 minutes everyone had their own balloon. Finally the teacher said:
“Balloons are like happiness. No one will find it looking for theirs only. Instead if everyone cares about each others they will find theirs as quickly as possible.”
Secondly, I came across this video from the wonderful Rupert Spira:
I really appreciate having you as my blog followers; thank you!
This is the story of Adam and Eve that the church doesn’t want you to know about. I’ve split it into two videos, Would You Adam and Eve It – Parts One and Two. For my friends across the pond, the term, “Adam and Eve”, is Cockney rhyming slang for “believe”. The first video explains how the Christian Church tries to instil fear into the masses by spinning them a cock-and-bull story about being sinners. Thus using their fear of being punished by a deity to keep them under control. The second video explains the deeper meaning of what is actually a very beautiful parable. The second video is a few minutes longer than what I intended, but I hope my wit and charm stops you from falling asleep.
