When spending time with Nature, looking at all her forms and expressions, we realise that she is beautiful because she is alive.
Even in terrible harshness, sharp and scarring, barren and bare. Even in death she breathes and allows the current of life to linger and flow. Inspired, we could accomplish so much from that impulsion to grow (undoubtedly provided this be natural and not synthetically provoked).
Yet synthetically provoked, favoured in this modern man’s world, most of it is already dead anyway. Plugged in yet disconnected. Another intelligence, unnatural, artificial.
If these things are not present in unrefined abundance then the natural expression of life will falter, the quality of experience will degrade, the organic vessel that permits it will cease to function at full capacity and reliance on synthetics will become the most convenient…
Why is value often based on appearance rather than values these days?
For too long, I was under the illusion that I had to conform in so many spheres just to have the right to even exist.
Thanks to the experiences I’d had in life, I often categorised and judged the value I could bring based on my appearance and capacity to assimilate the latest trends and ideals. Thus considered through the lens of a twisted, ever-changing synthetic beauty and fashion industry rather than anything based on wholesome, natural truth.
Even though reducing our consumption of chocolate and sugar probably ought to be a priority for anyone wishing to have the least negative impact on their planet and body. Let’s be real, sometimes you just need to indulge and I’m not here to judge…
“Better a happy [Chocolate brownie] than a sad salad”.
So with that in mind, should one absolutely must… It’s much better for all involved to handmake these Chocolate Brownies from whole, fair and organic ingredients. That way, you have more control over the quality and quantities. Rather than buying dodgy mass-produced, mystery flavour-packs of pre-fabricated, questionable and chemically-laden products made by these faceless corporations, machines and robots that certainly don’t care about the planet or your well-being. No matter how many green and ‘nice’ keywords words figure on the packaging, homemade – with love by real people is always best.
To that lost little girl or boy with festering hurt and sadness, dislocated family, circles of close ones that poison you further, to those born on the brink of a revolution, that live through trying trials and deep dark nights, yet who can rise victorious from every battle for their soul and attempts to sacrifice their physical vessels to energetic pirates and parasites.
To those that find we have no honest history that explains the deep-reaching roots that have survived despite setting out on twisted and polluted terrains with rabid enemies, many of which have something to gain through all this manipulation and manufactured pain.
“A handful of us determine what will be on the…news broadcasts, or for that matter, the [newspapers]… Indeed it is a handful of us with this awesome power…we must decide which news items, out of hundreds available, we are going to expose that day. And those [news stories] available to us already have been culled and re-culled by persons far outside our control.”
Today I am not uploading (yet another) archive post, nor am I bringing you new words from my being but actually words born of another that I recently discovered @slowdownfarmstead on Substack – if you resonate or feel moved to discuss, please also consider subscribing and supporting the author Tara using her links at the end of the post.

So much of what I’m going to touch on here must be augmented with an understanding of the globalization of our planet and how the corporate players that got us into this hot mess are the same ones holding themselves up as messiahs of salvation. If we buy their solutions to the problems they created, we are headed into the dark wood without a compass. They hold up promises to get us out of our predicament, but only if we are dutiful and listen to what must be done. Of course, what must be done further ensures the destruction of our mother earth, our bodies and spirits, and the increasing serfdom of humans dependent on soylent green factory slop in order to live. There are some references at the bottom of this essay to help put some of this in context if what I’m writing seems in anyway far fetched to you. Please feel free to share your own so we can all continue to learn together.
New Moon No Moon is in Taurus right now, with our Sun, there are no heavenly bodies in the constellation of Gemini whatsoever, take a look for yourself using an Astronomical Sky Viewing App or by learning about the night sky and plotting the observable positions yourself without the use of modern technology if you prefer, either way, if you claim to be a truth seeker then stop relying on others who do NOT study the actual positions of the cosmos to tell you and take responsibility for where you invest your energy.
Most know not what they do and are communicating erroneous positions from false, fixed calculations, or blatantly lying with juxtapositions based in outdated and dead systems – be wary of who you repost, be wary of what you say, ain’t no Gemini about this season, so why are you being led to believe so?

Recently I was blessed to discover Sona Jobarteh playing the Kora live with her band of equally talented musicians, I didn’t personally film until the very end of the concert because I wanted to be present. To give you an idea, I’ve taken this video that is much better quality from Youtube:
Not only did I feel the music incredibly profound, beautiful and emotional. The skills of all the musicians, the vibes, their humanity and their presence on the closing night in Toulouse were truly touching.
