Life on Earth – how to make sense of it

THERE IS A MEANING AND PURPOSE to our life here on Earth, no matter how challenging it can seem at times, and no matter how painful. It is, in reality, a quest, a pilgrimage, a journey in which we sometimes have to traverse difficult terrains because like the mythological hero, this is how we meet…

King for a Year and a Day

There is a consensus among ancient history researchers that the “king for a year and a day” was actually a practice of the Irish, Welsh and Scots during pre-Christian times. However, historians in the main do not have the right lenses to interpret ancient myths, and are blind to metaphor. So they end up weaving…

I Wanna Know What Love Is…

… sang Foreigner. Now that I’ve reached the Lover in my new book, which is based around classical psychological archetypes, I realise that I don’t know what love is. I’ve had plenty of experience of the Lover archetype in its Shadow form, and will be able to write reams about that, but not the Lover…

The Desecration of Wisdom

When I was first researching how the Romans destroyed the Mystery Groves of ancient Greece and Mesopotamia in order to “concrete over” their vast empire with the religion of Christianity, I never thought for one minute that I would witness such desecration in my own lifetime. Now, however, we can see the globalists using the…

How to activate the third eye

After a lifetime of disuse, most of us have some trouble getting our third eye or pineal gland to function because it is quite dormant. On top of that, a Western diet doesn’t do it any favours. The gland, which is at the base of the grail cup-shaped hypothalamus, can become calcified through us not…

Moksha can wait

It all began for me one Christmas morning, some time in the 1950s. My two younger sisters and I had woken early – it was still dark outside. So of course, we quickly remembered what day it was and then we instantly set to, frantically unwrapping all our presents. I will never forget our parents’…

Extricating ourselves from the Slough of Despond

The whole and healthy Creator archetype is clearly evident in the person whose work is a joyful outpouring of love for the creation and everything in it. They regard every pink-with-pregnant-promise dawn as yet another opportunity to share their gift, whether it is painting, writing, sewing, dancing, singing, composing, building, carving, forging …whatever skill almost…

Waiting for Garuda

I’ve been finding it difficult to post anything much lately because my time is much more taken up with scanning the skies. I’m looking for an eagle… a very special sort of eagle. I think if you read this through, you might understand why: In the Vedic literature on Oriental alchemy, there is a famous…

When your water stops working for you

I’ve been understanding a lot more about water as a living entity in recent times, although the journey began for me decades ago when it gradually dawned on me that I would always get my best inspiration in the bath. It was around the same time that I learned of Dr Emoto’s work with water.…

Easter and the cosmogonic dragon eggs of Avalon

THE WISE SAGES OF OLD knew how to bring Heaven down to Earth because they knew the Mysteries of Time and Space. They were cognisant of the sacred measurements that gave life and movement to the cosmos and that found its expression in every living thing, including man. Thus, they understood that the timings and…

Crystal mountain – axis mundi

I wrote in my post on the dharmic law of sanctity about how I see mountains as great pyramids and cathedrals. More recently, I’ve been journeying shamanically into Mount Kailash in Tibet, which locals believe to be the axis mundi, the tent pole of the Earth. Local legend has it that the four sides of…
