In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.

One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about Diogenes?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
'Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.

"That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man said, "Actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that may be bad, even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?"

The man was bewildered and ashamed.

We Can

There is no adverse condition that cannot be righted with the power of intent and the right use of will.

Old Minds, New Minds

Old minds think: How do we solve these problems?
New minds think: How do we make happen what we want to happen?

Living Intelligence

I heard it said that everything is living information; that consciousness is living intelligence that in-forms all living beings... then I heard that...

this programs our survival. we respond to it instinctively, it drives us and implements strategies and actions to control events that are survival patterns to enable evolutionary growth. people who are able to 'tap into' these streams of information find a greater flow in their lives as they connect the dots and work in harmony with the evolutionary impulse and imperative. There are also those who, having s strong conscious connection with the living intelligence, assist to drive and steer physical and energetic processes in line with the Design. The living intelligence wishes to be known, to come forth into greater presence within the physical program of life. The evolutionary design is to implement this emergence between matter and spirit. Energies have been in preparation to hold the living intelligence within the earth's frequencies. Human bodies too have been gradually influenced in order to hold these energies. There will slowly be a 'turning up' of the earth energies in order to permit the emergence of Living Intelligence. Everything will be affected

The Will

She was the younger of the two yet was without a doubt the special one. Her perceptions were almost extra-sensory...older than her youthful years, she walked amongst the world of adults in a slim body. She was searching for something different, set aside from the rest of the monochrome, relentless distractions.

She wanted antiques, and to be near things that had age and oozed experience. She wandered into the evening, pursued by hungry males. She would look after herself perfectly. I looked on, seeing the rabble congregate and follow on.

I would be going my own way; strangely too beguiled by this youth. It was a crossing; no further function between us. In this vague realm we take what we can remember - and do what we have the will to undertake.

Begin It Now

That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then
Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in one's favour all manner of
unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistances,
which no man could have dreamed would come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can -
Begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now.

A Promising Beginning

'There are energy spots everywhere; like threads of lemongrass spreading scent as it criss-crosses the lame fields'

'Do you really think so?' she enquired.

'It is not a matter of thinking; nor is it a matter of belief. These things just are - like wind ruffles leaves and worms burrow mud'. She smiled at the answer and cocked her head.

'You speak as if you know what is happening. Tell me: what is our future?'

'I haven't a clue I replied. In truth I am as lost as you'

I never saw her again after that. Perhaps she was disappointed in my truth after such a promising beginning.

She said: 'Record companies don't want to touch me now. I'm not marketable; I'm too much of a risk'

In the Flesh

I don't go for anaesthetized environments... like hygenic wards...pitifully scrubbed daily for infections...

I prefer a world of viruses...of dirt, soil, terrain...bacteria... to hold things in my hand... to be physically present so I can touch the face of the speaker if I so desire...

...Not absent...nor absence...nor devoid of Heart...

Give me a bloom of loving flesh so I may enjoy all company...

Thank you for coming back

Thank you for coming back... lost as I was in my revelry. What drinks we drank! What copious drinks we shared! I never thought your sensual sex would remain with me upon waking. Why did you only appear for the dreamer, the ecliptic sleeper? Why did you pursue the etheral flesh of the astral realms?

I asked after you from those whom you knew. You hid behind unnamed locations. Yet the word got back...and you came true to your promise.

The last vision I had was us together at the breakfast table, you pouring out our glasses of champagne. Laughing like crazy lifers, joyous in our esoteric gathering.

Thank you for coming back. Our world misses you...

A Drama of the Visible and the Invisible

‘We do not grasp that we are invisible. We do not realize that we are in a world of invisible people. We do not understand that life, before all other definitions of it, is a drama of the visible and the invisible’ – Maurice Nicoll

Most of the time we do not realize that all our thoughts and actions reverberate in our world, both in the visible and in the invisible aspects. We see only the outer shell, and walk around clumsily. Some of us do not yet have the energy to radiate a presence.

Or do we choose to be invisible; to step to the side of life and work quietly, unnoticed, as the centre stage is fought over by egoists and theatrical performers...

"'The evolutionary mechanism, carrying us toward this unknown destination, with full awareness of the target to be achieved and full knowledge of all the infinitely complex biological changes necessary to attain this end, must be, as we can readily imagine, guided by a Superintelligence, beyond anything that we can conceive in human is the only channel open to mankind to know step by step the modes of behaviour and the ways of thought necessary in order to live in consonance with the still hidden evolutionary laws...At the present moment, we are passing through one of those crucial periods in human history when collective breach of the evolutionary canons has attained to such a proportion that catastrophes appear imminent unless the transgression ceases before the saturation point." - Gopi Krishna
