Can grandads still have the funk?

Hell yes..

Way back in the early eighties, there was a big jazz-funk / soul scene in Kent. My friend and I used to get free entrance to several nightclubs because of our dancing…

The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42.

In the radio series and the first novel, a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings demand to learn the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7+1⁄2 million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Deep Thought points out that the answer seems meaningless because the beings who instructed it never knew what the question was.


[Verse 1]
When I was an infant in my mothers arms
I would watch the starlight in her face
Cause I was reaching out to understand the cosmic charm
I am just a starchild born in space

Way up high above the sky all that beauty passes by
Whole worlds still unknown
And out beyond the blue there’s a place for people too
It’s time for us to go

I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I have been there, I have seen it
Everywhere space people stare through ageless eyes
I have seen them, I believe it

Way up high above the sky all that beauty passes by
Whole worlds still unknown
And out beyond the blue there’s a place for people too
It’s time for us to go

We have time (In my dreams)
Time and space
While we’re young (Floating free)
We can chase
The stars

Verse 2]
Searching for the magic in the universe
Guided by the stars that light my way
I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I am just a starchild born in space

[Verse 3]
If you want to go with me I’ll take you there
I’ve been shown these secrets face to face
I have seen the sun shine bright in paradise
I am just a starchild born in space

The Dreamers of Mankind are Group Conscious.

This means that at the level of the soul, the souls of humanity are group conscious, they are aware of each other and do not feel as separate and individuated as the beings on the physical plane who may be more than a little self-absorbed. As nice a concept as this is, it doesn’t mean much to most people because, by and large their awareness is not buddhic or even at higher manas.

This sense of soular group is often ray group. It is not always the case; beings from all rays can feel the same motivating impulse and because of this get together as a collective for some endeavour or other. People all over the world can suddenly get the same impulse and though physically separated move together as a group without being physical plane cognizant.

I was introduced to the idea of group meditations by the Arcane School full moon meditations. I was curious to see if I could note others at a distance. Sure enough, after a while there was a palpable sensation of others coming “on-line” so to speak. After a while one felt a “pull” when it was time, no need to set a clock. The more one tuned in to it the more powerful it became, there was a nice sense of minds around the globe aspiring and evoking or invoking the same thing. There was a lot of good will. After a while I found it slightly intrusive, so I slowly eased out of it. Even today many years later I occasionally drop by, when the impulse comes, usually at wesak.

This kind of thing is very different from team working at a task or group / institutional mind on lower manas. A major barrier to team working is always personality reactions. I have directed at least half a dozen team development courses with facilitated tutor groups. And on each course the collective group mind was different. As director I had to keep an eye on the group mind of the entire course, the group mind of the tutor team and the group mind within each tutor team. Occasionally I had to intervene to help a tutor. I am not afraid of a bit of confrontation; it can be the best thing since sliced bread under some circumstances. In one of the quotations about complaining “diva” behaviour is mentioned and quite often this is a major source of ruination in teams. Someone goes all diva, and the team has to tend to this massive I in the mix. I have met a lot of people prone to diva behaviours over the years, I was an academic after all.

It is only after one can rise above, literally, all the petty personality reactions that one starts to get a sense of what I call soular connectivity. It is free, easy, not at all demanding and very Aquarian. It is so light, feather like. If someone is of a second ray soul and they are to a fair extent connected with it, I can spot them and usually we click. There are no communication barriers to speak of.

One of the biggest problems for the coming age is how to foster this soular connectivity so that people so connected can work effectively on the physical plane without all the damage wrought by personality reactions. It is why correspondence courses have a greater longevity that proximal group working.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all rise above our petty personality reactions and sit together in our buddhic consciousness?

That is something to aspire to!!

An Aquarian Being

I consider myself to be an Aquarian being. I even live at Traou an Dour, place of water. The problem is that if one differs from others, one can have a tough time of it. There are those, whom we might call the establishment, who have a vested interest in things staying just as they are. They like the power, just the way it currently is. I might be a bit annoying to some of them because I am not toeing the party line.

Power and the money, money and the power
Minute after minute, hour after hour


Tell me why are we so blind to see

That the ones we hurt are you and me?

When I say that the externalisation is going on, it is. Behind the scenes and all over the world men and women of goodwill, exist. Thousands of them form triangles in meditation. Many more say the great invocation on a daily basis. People like myself visualise the A-U-M rotating and sparkling in three dimensions, in triangular formation with two of my second ray brothers. I chant the triple cyclic A-U-M in Tibetan deep voice and then sing it across all the registers of my voice including falsetto. I let its sound take me over. I ground the A-U-M in my front room.

People all over the world are working to build the new religion for The Age of Aquarius.

Whilst the summer of love mentality has been mortally wounded by the likes of The Wolf of Wall Street. It surges from time to time like the rave scene of Manchester. I have no doubt that resurgence after resurgence will occur. The youth will eventually get sick of our rapacious and destructive generation.

Before the new can arise so often the old ways have to die. I think it fair to say that humanity is the most morally depraved that it has ever been, with its obsession for image, porn, spin and fatuousness. Friends with benefits? What a brilliant idea, not. We have so-called leaders questioning the very democracy that put them into power. We are in the midst of the first pandemic of this century. The weather is getting weird. It is starting to look a tad “biblical”.

People have deliberately and knowingly resisted me; they may even be doing it now. Many others have in the past schemed against me.

Are we heading for another “Atlantis” like situation?

It could be, but it is a little way off yet.
