What am I not aware of,
that I need to be aware of,
to improve the quality of my life,
NOW?
*
*


A man once said to the Guru,
"How can I find God?"
The Guru replied,
"Where are you going this evening?"
"To a party."replied the man.
Said the Guru, "Good. While you're at the party have a look around the room. When you find the one without a head, you will have found God."
*
*


Belief systems
will separate
you from God.
*
*


God exists
in feelings.
*
*



I don't believe
or disbelieve
in God.
The fact is,
God is
because
I AM,
I AM
because
God is.
*
*

Is is not
possible
to believe
in yourself
& deny God.
*
*


You can't have
your cake & eat it,
much as you'd like to.
*
*


The non-believers
create God
by refusing
to believe.
By refusing to deny
the existence of God,
you assert it.
*
*

If you don't understand the language,
how can you derive joy out of it?
*
*


Once you understand
the language of love
you understand
all languages.
*
*

Fortunate;
one of the
aspects of
Gratitude.
*
*

In order for
things to change,
the pendulum
has to stop.
*
*


Only people
with choices
make mistakes.
*
*


Choices are a false idea.
They cause confusion.
*
*

In the world of
necessary & unnecessary
there are no mistakes.
*
*

Who's going to entertain you
when the electricity goes off
& doesn't come back on?
*
*

That's the beauty
of the unimaginable.
You can't imagine it.

YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT FEELINGS

Whenever you're ready
to avert any kind of
friction or
disturbance,
then you can call
yourself a
Peace-Loving
Nation.
*
*







People are being slaughtered every day
so that you can use your cellphone.
Doesn't that bother you?
*
*








The first stage of Peace
is, write it down,
I DESIRE TO LIVE
IN A PEACEFUL WORLD.

(can you say the same thing?)
*
*







I deserve
everything
I get in life.
Do you?
*
*








Those who curse live a cursed life. (& while we're at it, where did 'cursing' originate?) I leave that one with you.
*
*








How can you
complain
about something
if you aren't
doing
anything
about it?

*
*







Societies
use money
to create
illusions.
Poor people
do not suffer
from illusions.
*
*








The only way
to free you
from illusions
is to take
your money
away from you.
*
*







Peace does not come out
of the end of a gun.
Violence, misery & suffering,
That's all weapons ever created.
*
*







While ever man continues
slaughtering & eating animals
then they will slaughter
and kill each other.
It's all meat
to the eater of meat.

*
*







Smoking is a body addiction.
So is the eating of meat.
*
*







I'm like a parrot,
I keep repeating
the Truth,
over & over.
*
*







Once you can no longer feel
the suffering & misery
of a fellow human being,
then guaranteed, you are next.
*
*








The less
you feel,
the closer
you are
to death.
*
*






You cannot live
without feelings.
It's not possible.
*
*






Where is hell?
It's not up in
the sky, is it!
*
*








"How do you levitate?"
"That's easy! You just let go."
*
*






To release 'gravity',
release 'hold-on'.
*
*







Where do you think
angels come from?
They let go, &
look what happened.
*
*






COMMITMENT
*
*








All hell has been
opened up
on this Planet.
Lack of morality
opened the gates.
*
*




The only way
to stop the war
is to manifest
Peace.

First-hand experience
shatters imagination.
*
*









Ownership is a false idea.
It is a word that everyone
agrees on - that it's
real & true.
*
*










The Universe is there
to help you,
not to do it
for you.
*
*









The Universe has an abundance to give.
My question is; how much can you give
yourself?
*
*










All the power, money and
trinkets of the world
could not make a ripple in the Ocean of abundance,
which resides in the Heart of the Guru.
*
*










The Guru
is the dead center
of God's Heart.
*
*









I have no pre-conceived ideas.
I have nothing going on.
*
*








In order to get there
you have to sell out.
Nobody gets there first
and then sells out.

Awareness
is a big
responsibility.
*
*











There is a difference
between liberal &
lack of discipline.
*
*












Give stupidity a little bit of power
& you have a problem on your hands.
*
*













Attention
is
power.
Manifested Power.

*
*














Instability of
mind + power
= disaster.
*
*














One of the
hardest aspects
of the work
is to sit
& do
nothing.
*
*













If we are all different
then why do we all
chase pleasure
& run away from pain?
*
*












It's the idea of Enlightenment
that gets in the way of it.

Just because you have
your hands on the wheel,
don't imagine
that you are in control.
*
*









People love
the idea of choice.
It gives them a feeling
of security and power.
*
*









My words (and love) will get you through the hard times that are fast approaching. I came out of hard times. It took me years to teach myself how to enjoy life.
*
*











Whatever fear you carry, question it & it will disappear. When I went to the root of fear, it turned into love. Fear separates you from love. Fear of what? Fear has no answers. Love has all the answers. Don't forget to ask the correct questions.
*
*









Misuse the energy and you will get burned.
*
*










If you don't have
enough time in your life
for service, then there's
no way you are living!
*
*










Whatever actions
you commit to,
make sure
that they will
uplift all of us.
*
*











Nobody wants to be left behind.
Not one soul can be lost
or we are all doomed.
*
*










This knowledge is medicine.
If you don't have the brainpower
to take the medicine,
how are you going to get well?
*
*










The Earth
has a huge amount
of power in it.
Be careful
not to insult it.
*
*









If you do not have
an affinity with your work,
then don't expect it to work.
*
*










That's how life is
in the Bush..
it's them or us. Mates.

ANOTHER CHAPTER IN A SHEARERS LIFE

Photobucket

On Friday night, after the shed had finished, Don Freeman said to me, "We're starting a camping-out shed on Monday Chummy, so we'll be leaving the lake on Sunday, lunchtime. Make sure you've got enough gear for the week, including booze and fags 'cause we'll be way out in the bush, miles from nowhere."
"Where we goin' Don?"
"Down towards Hay, on the One Tree Plain. I contract that shed every year. We'll be there for roughly three weeks mate."
"OK mate, I'll be ready."
That evening, being Friday night and the end of a shed, Gundy was firing on all 8 cylinders already.
"Hey Chummy!", he yelled. "Come over and meet Cyclone. This is our pommy roustabout.", said Gundy to Cyclone. "This is Cyclone, chummy. He's a gun shearer!"
Cyclone was as bad, if not worse an alcoholic than Gundy. Once he had a few bucks in his pocket he would not shear another sheep until it was all gone. Cyclone, like Gundy, was a hell of a good-natured man but the booze had him. He was his worst enemy. Very seldom in the Bush will one man tell another man what he should do. Everyone figures that as soon as a boy starts to work, he's old enough to be his own master. 'cause for one thing, he's working and living in a mans' world.
When Sunday lunchtime arrived, Don Freeman picked up Boney and me, Gundy and Cyclone. We drove a long way down to the One Tree Plain. Boney and I had to sit in the back of the Ute 'cause there was no room in the front.
The back of the Ute was filled with stores for the cook. A section of the back was reserved for me and Boney, along with the cartons of beer and numerous flagons of Brown Muscatel wine.
Freemans' dogs had to balance on top of all the boxes. They almost fell out a couple of times as we sped along the Bush roads at 80 miles an hour. After a few hours of driving, we arrived at the shearing shed. There it was, a big, corrugated iron shed sat on wooden pylons out in the middle of nowhere!
The landscape was almost barren as far as the eye could see in all directions. The ground was hot and dry and every so often there was a clump of rough, dry bush grass. It was called the One Tree Plain because nowhere in sight could anyone point out a tree of any size or shape. It was so hot that numerous whirly winds chased each other round and round in circles as they sped across the barren land. There was nothing edible that Merino sheep could live on and how they survived had got me beat!
The yards were already full of big, rough-necked wethers and a few hundred were packed in under the shed in case of a freak rainstorm. Miles and miles off in the distance was a cloud of red dust. This was probably the Jackeroos mustering another large mob of sheep. It would take a full day to bring them in to the shed to wait for their turn for shearing.
The shearers' living quarters were about a hundred yards away form the shed so Freeman drove the Ute in that direction. There was no shade to park it in so it just stayed where it was stopped until it had been unloaded.
Most shearers quarters at camp-out sheds are pretty clean and have good mattresses and beds. The beds, are in most cases, two to a room. Boney and me selected a clean room at the end, before any of the other blokes arrived.
The Shearers Union, which is called the A.W.U. was very supportive towards the shearers. That's the reason the quarters were in such good shape. If it was left up to the Cocky, he wouldn't care if the shearer had to sleep on the floorboards because, by his reckoning, the quarters were only used once or twice a year at shearing and crutching time, so why bother to make them livable.
Each room had a small set of cupboards between the beds for our clothes. The one window had a fly screen to keep out he bush flies and mosquitoes. There were no fans to keep it cool and at nighttime it could be around 90 degrees in those tin rooms. There was no electricity so the two refrigerators in the kitchen ran on kerosene. Half of one fridge would be used o keep the beer cold and the rest of the grog would be wrapped in wet hessian bags and stuck under the floor outside. Whatever bit of breeze there was would keep the beer slightly cool but nowhere near cold.
Boney and I helped Don to cart the stores from the back of the Ute to the kitchen, After we'd finished, Boney said, "Come on Chummy, let's go over to the shearing shed and check it out mate!"
It was about 5 O'clock now and the heat was still stifling. Mirages of water appeared everywhere as we walked across the windy plain. The hot breeze made doing anything hard work so we took our time, laughing and joking as we walked.
We got to the big shed and walked up the steep wooden stairs, hanging onto the steel railing. I was in front, so I pushed open the small corrugated door and we went inside.
"Gaw'd fucking hell!" said Boney as we stood in the shed and looked around. "Just look at all that parrot shit on the floor! It'll take us two or three hours to clean up this mess!"
"Yeah. Just look up there Boney!"
The shearing shed rafters were packed tight with Galahs.
(A Galah is a grey and pink parrot about 9" high. They are very common around NSW and make an awful racket when they sit around on the trees. Bush people even call each other 'silly Galahs.'.)
As we walked around I said to Boney, "Why are they all hanging around in the shed, mate?"
" 'Cause there's no fucking trees around Chummy so they've taken over the shearing shed."
The shed had been closed for months on end so due to the heat inside and the layers of parrot shit all over the place the stink was awful.
"Fucking hell Chummy, we've got to get rid of these bloody Galahs and clean up this board before we can even start shearing."
"Yeah, it's a real mess Boney. How d'ya reckon we should go about it?"
"We'll kill as many of 'em as we can because if not they'll come back at nighttime and shit all over the place again."
"How we gonna' do that mate? If we shoot at 'em and miss, the bullets will put holes in the roof."
"Ya probably right Chummy. Give me a minute to think, mate."
There must have been at least 300 Galahs in the shed. Some were sitting while others were flying around and squawking like hell. As I looked around, there was shit on the floor, shit on the wool table, all over the wool press, the wool packs were covered in it and it was even in the wool stalls.
"Tell ya what we'll do Chummy. Let's take that full bale of wool and roll it over to that end of the shed."
After that was done, Boney said, "Alright mate, grab that end of the wool table and we'll carry it over to the opposite side."
As soon as the table was in place, he said, "Here Chummy, take this."
"What's the straw broom for?"
"It's not a fucking straw broom!" he said with a big grin on his face.
"It looks like a straw broom to me, mate."
"Use your imagination Chummy. It's a double-handed shuttle-cock racquet!"
"Where's the shuttle-cocks?"
"Up there stupid!" as he pointed to the Galahs.
"Now, I've got the picture mate! I'll use the table and you use the bale."
"That's the idea Chummy. You scare 'em down to my end for a while and I'll smash 'em with the broom. We'll take turns at batting. Let's see who can get the highest number."
He drew a line in the parrot shit and said, "That's your half and this is mine. We'll count 'em up later."
I shooed all the Galahs down to Boneys' end of the shed and as they approached him, he swung the straw broom with a double back-hander.
'WHACK!' He knocked three Galahs out of the air in one blow. A double-handed forearm smash sent two more crashing to the floor.
"Alright Chummy, your turn.", he said as he giggled out loud. "I'll shoo 'em down to your end now mate. You take a couple of serves. The double-handed forearm smash seems to be a good point-scorer!"
As I stood on the table at the ready, the long-handled straw broom was over mi shoulder, cocked and ready to serve.
"Here they come Chummy!", yelled Boney.
Three hundred Galahs were now squawking like hell and flying straight for me. As soon as the live shuttle-cocks were in range, I let fly with a powerful over-head serve! One large Galah was knocked out of the air. An unconventional, two-handed upward reverse stroke sent two more to the deck. A clumsy double-handed sideswipe sent three more crashing through the ether!
"OK, your serve Boney!", I yelled, amidst the loud squawking.
I shooed the Galahs back down to Boneys' court. A well-aimed sideswipe sent three Galahs to bird heaven. A single-handed clumsy shot missed altogether and Boney fell off the big wood bale into a pile of Galah shit.
"Fault!", I shouted from my end as he slipped around in the white shit trying to scramble back up on the 'baseline' pack. Another mighty double-handed backhand sent three more Galahs to the deck.
"Alright Chummy, your serve!", yelled Boney as he shooed them back again.
After half-an-hour of strenuous badminton on center court we called 'Time-Out'
for a rest and cleanup. It wasn’t' too bad but Boney was covered in Galah shit and feathers as he walked up to me, smiling from ear to ear.
"We'll take a breather and swap ends Chummy. That wool pack is a bit hard to balance on. You've got the advantage on the table."
"Alright mate.", I said as we laughed. "We'll swap ends and play one more game and then we'll open the doors and chase the rest out. I don't think they'll come back in a hurry.
At the end of the game, we counted up the Galahs and then opened the two large doors. The remaining parrots flew out and were never seen again. It took Boney and me three hours to scrub the floor with hot, soapy water we'd boiled in the outside copper.
By this time all the other blokes had arrived. The cook made up some tucker and after dinner we sat around in our rooms reading, talking or playing cards. Gundy and a couple of the other shearers sat around drinking plonk till about 11 O'clock.
It was pretty hard to sleep that night 'cause it was so hot. We just lay on our backs sweating like hell, drifting in an out of sleep.
The following morning being Monday, everyone was up bright and early. Even Gundy didn't look too worse for wear. Breakfast was at 6 and Dons' brother Jazzer was doing the cooking. Jazzer was a few years younger than Don, which would have made him around 40. Don was a fairly handsome sort of bloke which was more than could be said for Jazzer! He was about 5'9" and a thick-set bloke. Most of his bulk was comprised of fat. He had a mop of black, curly hair and a pretty large beak for a nose and a ginormous set of choppers on him. His teeth would not have looked too bad had he have cultivated the habit of cleaning them. Instead, they were a greeny-yellow color. He had a habit of standing with his mouth open and the teeth could easily be seen protruding below his top lip. He was also quite a heavy smoker. He used to grip the ends of the tips in his large teeth. Have you ever seen a horse with its' lips peeled back as it chomps on the bit? Well, stick a fag in-between the horses teeth and there you have Jazzer!
As far as his cooking skills went, he was rated at half-a-star. Jazzer was also able to shear. When he pulled into gear his named changed to Jabber. (That's another story!)
After breakfast, we all made our way over to the shearing shed. As we entered the shed Gundy noticed a large pile of dead Galahs off to the side of the steps. When Boney related the game of Badminton, Gundy had to smile which was unusual for him at 6:45 in the morning.

GOD IS NOT FUSSY

In a timeless state
time goes in no time.
*
*







No place
is different
or better.
*
*







God is not fussy,
He resides in everyone,
even atheists.
*
*








Don't get excited
over delusions.
*
*










My armor is
that I speak the Truth.
*
*












To recognize the truth,
you've got to have at least
a little bit of it in you.
*
*











No one can claim
to be a Christian
& go to war & kill!
*
*









The duty of every Christian
is to see God in each other.
*
*










War is the absolute refusal
to perform ones' duty.
*
*










It promises everything
and gives nothing.
It gives life
& takes it.
*
*








There
cannot
be
a God
without
a man.
*
*








No joy
No results.
*
*








Always speak the Truth.
It dis-empowers ignorance.
*
*









It is the duty of everyone
to manifest God Consciousness.
*
*









A man has only two hands.
When both of his hands are full
& he is offered a gift,
in order to take the gift
he has to put something down.
*
*








When thinking stops,
Love begins.
*
*











If you want to stay young,
stay in touch with your love.
*
*











You can't use love
against another.
You can only
use their fear
to control them.
*
*











Just as one rotten apple
in a barrel will
contaminate all the others,
so will one out-dated, rotten idea
do the same.
*
*









Don't let anyone
steal your heart or
they will control your mind.
*
*











Looking for happiness in others is like
expecting a barren women to give birth.
*
*











There is an abundance of happiness in each and every one of us. Prove me wrong. Stop creating misery! Creating misery and then complaining you're not happy is a fools' game!
*
*









Commitment
is the
great revealer.
*
*










The only way to
transmute a society
is for everyone to experience
the same thing at the same time.
It has to effect everyone
*
*










You only need
one for a party.
*
*










Love does
not control.
Fear does.
*
*










Good habits keep
the bad habits out.
*
*










One can have power
in the world
when they have power
over their mind.
*
*










Constant
attention.
*
*










Joy is joy.
It doesn't
belong to anyone.
It's just there.
*
*










A prisoner
of ignorance.
*
*












People who have
ideas about God
are separate from God.
Their ideas separate them.
*
*










If you're together
you'll make it.
If you're not,
you won't.
*
*











Creative intelligence
comes from the
center of the heart.
*
*








Knowledge exists in the Heavens.
It is ones' duty to pull it down
for the betterment and upliftment of man.

SEARCHING FOR ENLIGHTENMENT

"Who does he think he is?"
"He doesn't think he's anybody.
He knows what he's not
& that's enough for him."
*
*









When you
open your heart
You're the first
one to get it.
That is your
last chance of
survival.
*
*










It's dead & empty in there
so I talk to my Self.
*
*











What you identify with
will determine if you
survive or not.
*
*










Once you know what you are willing to die for
you'll also know your chances of survival.
*
*













It keeps everything
balanced & in perspective.
*
*












The world, itself, is only an idea based on I AM.
Therefore, what does it say of the things in it?
*
*











Just as in re-incarnation;
if you did your best
why would you bother
to come back?
*
*












Re-incarnation is no use
to the man who burnt the
bridges behind him.
*
*











It's not what
I know
it's who
I AM.
*
*










To discover who you truly are
you have to give up what
you know, the known.
*
*











Searching for Enlightenment
is part & parcel of the dream.
*
*










One who credits the
world with reality
enslaves themselves.
Don't blame others.
*
*












True freedom lies
in denying the
world reality.
*
*












Now you know
what true freedom is,
it's up to you.
*
*













Ignorance is the chain
that shackles you
to the world.
*
*












"It can't be you, you don't fit the mold."
"Right, you noticed. I'm not Cinderella, you know."

You will not get
