Why Star Trek Voyager?

Recently I’ve become re-addicted to Star Trek Voyager. In fact I had not seen Series 5 to 7 so it was just great to catch up. Voyager is like no other Star Trek spin off. Those who still recall and admire the original Star Trek and can’t unstick themselves fromRead More

35 years a slave

This morning I got off a plane at London Gatwick and from there these thoughts come to be generated. I missed a bus to take me to my flypark hotel where my car was parked, whilst I was vacationing in the Caribbean. I didn’t think it was cost efficient forRead More

Short shrift–will I be arrested?

Well, this morning I’m making myself a late breakfast in my kitchen at about 10:55 AM. It’s Saturday.  As I glance through my window, from behind my curtains, I could see that there are two people at my front door. It’s two old ladies. Well they look old and theyRead More

The exploitation of hope

The title for this blog just ‘hit me’ and I had to write this. So I put everything else on hold. At the outset, I need to say that I have nothing against ‘hope’ in itself. Our society and our achievements are based on aspirations. We had to have someRead More

Freedom lost? Martin Luther King–I remember!

Like pearl being trampled by swine – grunting that this was ‘just about America’ – many a crawler on Rocks big and small forget this important day in history. A man spoke,  a man died – for our freedom!! A man spoke the truth. And the truth survives even death!!Read More

The Scotland trek

This took place between end of June to 9th July. Yes, some will have figured that the Cap and Jumbie were there at the same time. ‘Twas a life-changing experience. Enjoy some of the scenes below. But video and photographs cannot truly approximate the raw beauty and expanse of Scotland.

Chief Tecumseh’s words of wisdom

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long andRead More

The dance of the molecules. What is the song?

Facing the existential vacuum is not everybody’s cup of tea (especially on a Sunday morning, when this is written). Sure – most ‘normal’ people will be in a building designed for religious believers, learning how great God is and re-confirming ‘his’ goodness and purpose. Instead, my thoughts this morning doRead More

Thought for tomorrow

“Walking the spiritual path properly is a very subtle process; it is not something to jump into naively. There are numerous sidetracks which lead to distorted, ego-centred versions of spirituality; we can deceive ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthening our egocentricity through spiritual techniques.Read More

Waste of my life–the early years

I just calculated that approximately 570 hours of my life between the ages of 5 and 11 were spent compulsorily participating in the singing of bhagans in a language I did not know or understand. I was told to believe in God – and that this was the way. Today,Read More
