LOST & FOUND

What you've never had
you don't miss.
What you've had & lost
will leave you in pain
until you find it again.
*
*











Hey! I am the one
who has to live with myself.
No one else has to live with me.
If you decide to live with me then
you live life like I do.
There's only
one way
to live.
*
*












First, a man has to be interested in his potential before he can
manifest his full potential.
*
*












Instead of asking, "What do I want?",
try asking, "What am I capable of?"
*
*












My interests lie in challenging.
I have been interested in it my whole life.
I have given up many opportunities to become
fabulously wealthy and well-known. 
Challenging ignorance
 is much more interesting to me.
*
*















If you haven't manifested
your full potential
then don't try to fool me
by telling me
you know
who
you
are.
*
*















Potential is unlimited,
therefore, the best you
can do is find out
what you're not.
*
*














From the standpoint of Reality,
you are Pure Potential.
*
*













I have no problem with the idea of a world.
The danger with that idea is,
if you stray too far into the world
you'll forget your way home.
*
*














What is the use of a mans' words
if everyone doesn't benefit from them?
*
*















Equality consciousness
treats everyone equally.
It knows no other way.
*
*











No hypocritical Empire
has controlled the world
for too long.
*
*











Besides the fact that once you win at Monopoly, the game's over.
*
*












There is plenty to go around on the Planet without greed.
Once greed enters the picture there's never enough!
*
*











Once you're out of band-aids, what are you going to do? You can't do another band-aid job.

HOW TO MASTER THE SELF

Every man
dies as he lives.
Live in fear
& you will die in fear.
Live in love
& you will die in love.
Instead of being afraid of death
& trying to avoid it,
create your own death
the way you feel
comfortable with.
*
*










The ultimate of paranoia
is to go around killing people
before they kill you.
*
*












You can't live life
without getting into it.
*
*










It's greed that
makes things
so expensive.
*
*













85% go.
15% stay.
In order for the 15% to survive they will have to manifest unconditioned love and that is the foundation of a great new society.
*
*












How does a conditioned society manifest
unconditioned love for each other?
*
*












The 10 Commandments are
all the laws that any
intelligent society needs.
*
*












To find out how we are doing as a Society, Google how many laws there are on the books.
*
*














To get free of the mind,
first one has to
understand it &
how it works.
*
*












The world is like it is
because people have lost
contact with the Earth.
The world is like it is
because people are
like they are.
Change the people,
Change the world.
*
*













The mind itself is God.
When the mind is happy
everyone is happy.
*
*














Enlightenment~
If not now,
When?
*
*











He who carries
the most Love, wins.
*
*












Actions create situations
which demand a correct response.
*
*












All problems are self-created.
Where they lead you is anybodies guess.
*
*













You can only have free will when you are free.
Once free, you can use your will, as a tool,
to uplift the Society you live in.
*
*












First, one has to know
what to get free from.
*
*











Freedom and fear cannot
live in the same room.
*
*












Whatever gets in the
way of Love has to go.
*
*












You will be quite surprised
at what you will see when
thought stops interfering.
*
*











Contemplation is looking
without thinking.
*
*












Everything that is added in life causes change.
The Changeless has nothing added to it.
*
*












Knowledge of the
Laws of Nature
guarantees survival.
*
*









Pure action
Not reaction.
*
*











You have the power,
not the mind.
*
*











It's as obvious
in the beginning
as it is in the end.
The confusion is in the middle.
*
*










In deep sleep there is no religion.
In deep sleep there is no war.
In deep sleep the mind is in abeyance.
*
*











If you still have desires
you need a God to fulfill them.
*
*












Master the Self
with discipline.
*
*











The mind is like a child,
it wants everything it sees.
*
*











There is only one thing on my list ~ INTEREST
Nothing can happen without it.
*
*













When one is given
the Gift of Life,
it is their duty to live
it and investigate it.

FREEDOM IS NOW::SONG LYRICS

The world will always be as it is
As long as people are the same.
When people stop and look again
There'll be no pleasure and no pain.
*

The world is like a great big screen
On which you all project your dream.
The only thing I know that's real
Is the power behind the wheel.
*

Freedom is now
Where else can it be?
Freedom is now
All you have to do is see.
*

We live our fantasies and dreams
We cram our images in jeans
We haunt the shopping mall and street
Projecting on the ones we meet.
*

We hurt the ones we love the most
As we race to the winning post.
We never stop to think and care
Just as long as we get there.
*

We live our lives in fear and hope
In dark despair we often grope.
Ghosts and demons haunt our mind.
We feel we have an axe to grind.
*

We tell each other how it is
We think that life is one big quiz
The knowledge that we belch and spew
Is rooted in the me and you.
*

We chase success in empty worlds
We act like foolish boys and girls.
We laugh, we cry, we curse and scream
As we drown in our private dream.
*

And on it goes until the end
Until we find we cannot bend.
The life that we lived hopefully
Has ended up in memories.
*

Freedom is now
Where else can it be?
Freedom is now
All you have to do is see.

To be rooted in
the thought-free state
you have to
dissolve thought.
*
*
















Don't wait for anyone
to give you recognition.
"Give it tha' sen."
*
*




















I created my own wealth.
I AM a self-made man.
*
*




















Living
life
identity-less.
*
*






















The basics
remain the
same.
*
*



























Disappointment
comes out of
expectation.
*
*
























Attachment
causes
suffering.
*
*

























Man is soon to find out
how much control he really has.
*
*


























A disciple
of the
heart.
*
*


























The easiest way to pay off incorrect actions is with money. Yet, how do you do that in a bankrupt economy? You are the economy; how do you feel?
*
*




























Good company.
Misery
can't
say that.
*
*





























A man,
with no patience,
can't wait to die.
*
*

























Once I
said it,
I had to
live it.
*
*


























Once you realize
there is nowhere to go
& nothing to do,
you'll have lots of
time on your hands.
*
*

























The only thing
that stops a society
from imploding
is morals.
*
*



















Morals
stand
between
you & doom.

Disasters
bring
people
together.
*
*











In a corrupt environment
a genuine man sounds naive.
*
*













It is much better
to be grateful
when you have it
than to learn
about gratitude
without it.
*
*














To a Society that
has had everything
and expects more;
the unexpected will
cause misery &
disappointment.
*
*












God protects
ones' inner wealth.
*
*














Reading spiritual books, without the direct experience of the Self, is like imagining a glass of imaginary water will quench your thirst.
*
*












The unknown
does not bow down
to logic.
*
*











Go direct to God
without an
intermediary.
*
*











If you are serious
you will only need
to do it once.
*
*










Reincarnation
is for the
ignorant.
*
*










There is a block of ideas.
They are all right & they are all wrong.
They are all good & they are all bad.
They are all true & they are all false.
What else do you expect from ideas?
*
*











Give truth a chance
and it will speak for itself.
*
*












Everything you see in life
should remind you of God.
*
*










Everything in you do in life;
do it for God.
*
*











All religions
come from
the same place.
*
*










If you want to enliven consciousness
then live...truly live!
*
*










When you have nothing else left to lose
you will do whatever is necessary.
*
*










You cannot
manifest
a crisis.
*
*










If you want peace,
start with yourself.
*
*










If you don't want war,
then manifest peace.
*
*










Were people to be able
to stay out of drama
they would appreciate life more.
*
*











It's easier to change oneself
than to try to change the world.
*
*










When a famine arrives
you will know that
God has left the building!
*
*










I've always known
that my every actions
have been observed.
*
*











Witness consciousness
is watching
everything.
*
*










Every action
has a witness.
*
*










In witness consciousness
you don't need a private world.
*
*










When the unknown manifests
there will be lots to deal with.
*
*










Let me give you some great advice;
when you are in it,
don't let anything
pull you out of it.
*
*













Eating is a social activity.
Famine is a global catastrophe.
*
*










Needs are legitimate.
Wants are neurotic.
*
*









If it doesn't have any humor in it, what use is it?
*
*











Mans' actions
are governed
by the planets.
*
*










The Hierarchy; The Guru, The King, The Queen, The President, The People. Ask yourself, who has the most strength & power?
*
*











Ultimately,
Power on its own
is useless.
It takes strength
to hang on to it.
The alternate is
to let go
& let flow.
Let go,
dip in
your
toe.
*
*












How do you access the content of your consciousness. Do you access it through the TV, the computer, the movies? Have you ever thought of accessing it directly?
(rather than using a go-between.) You give the television power over you when you turn it on.
*
*










What will you do
when the Earth declares war
on you, rich & poor,
 powerful
& weak
alike?

HOW TO KEEP THE HAMSTER OFF THE WHEEL

The only way to keep
the hamster off the wheel
is to take the wheel away.
Likewise with people.
*
*
























One of the lessons
I learned in life was;
if you don't look after it,
it will be taken away from you.
*
*























Before anything
goes on the blog,
I do the work.
*
*






















All scams are based on ignorance
& the fall guys are the ignorant.
*
*























Dependence on
anything
is misery.
*
*






















If you could have ____________
would it make you any
happier than you are right now?
I didn't need to look any further.
*
*






















Nothing will ever
change in America
until you are ready to put
your life on the line.
*
*





















Going through life,
leaving your shit behind
for someone else to
pick up is over.
*
*


















All Empires are the same,
they are all built on
the backs of slavery
& that's why they failed.
*
*




















A powerful man
has no crutches.
Ask
the
Buddha.
*
*




















Don't believe the bullshit you're told.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
In the absolute there is no such thing as power.
In the world absolute power is found in the heart
& someone wants me to believe they're ignorant.
*
*





















The only thing that will
wake the world up en-masse
is a nuclear war, which
will bring New-Clear-Energy.
*
*






















Not trying to influence
has the most influence.
*
*





















The desire to go beyond suffering,
isn't that an act of love?
*
*





















Aches & pains belong to the body,
suffering belongs to the mind.
You may have to put up with the body
but suffering is not necessary.
*
*




















When it comes down to
necessary & unnecessary
you will be surprised by
how little you really need.
*
*

















What's beyond
great inconvenience?
*
*



















I don't care
whether people
like me or not.
I like me.
I AM
my best
friend.
*
*


















You claim the body to be yours,
then take it with you when you go.

Life is like a fishing net.
Focus on the whole, not on the net.
That is what the fish does.
Even a fish has that ability.
*
*










If there is a hole for IT to get in
then there is a hole for IT to get out.
*
*












A mirror
doesn't care
who looks into it.
*
*














Radical
change
demands
radical
action.
*
*













Enlightenment
is a unique form
of insanity.
*
*












One cannot know the Self,
they can only be the Self.
*
*














It takes great courage
to live without
belief systems.
*
*











The root cause
of all fear is
ignorance.
*
*












Suffering
will never end
until the cause
is removed.
*
*











There are no problems
without
incorrect information.
Incorrect information
creates
confusion and conflict
which causes
negativity.
Negativity, in turn,
manifests
as
war,
destruction
& death.
*
*










Illusion
is based
on a false
point of
reference.
*
*











In-between
fight/flight
lies
peace.
*
*











Appearances
are
deceptive.
*
*












Courage
doesn't float
on the ocean
like seaweed.
One has to go
to the bottom
to discover it.
*
*













God gives the tools.
The Guru teaches you
how to use them.
You do the work.
*
*













True happiness
is the
ability
to give up
what
you don't need.
*
*











A peaceful mind
is the basis of
a joy-filled life.
*
*












If you take the lesser,
you cannot have the greater.
*
*











Death is not of the being.
It is the death of time.
*
*












True power
comes from
belief
in myself.
*
*











One can only be free
from what one understands.
*
*










The same switch
that turns the TV off
is the same switch that
turns the interest on.

Awareness gives
instant access
to it.
*




















If you really want
to help people
leave them alone.
(Unless of course
they ask you for help
then don't keep them waiting.
If they don't ask for help
they will only argue with you.)
*




















You are not the doer.
Let it happen .
Let the doer do it.
He knows what he's doing.
*


















There's no where to go. You are where you've always been. Once the comings & goings & doing are over, you'll know what I mean.
*



















Without a good
sense of humor
you won't survive.
*




















All a convenient life
can do is weaken you.
*



















If you want to be here
you have to be here now.

Supreme Intelligence
in a limited form.

The Unlimited
you are.
Act on it.
It will become
actual
rather than
conceptual.

W O N D E R M E N T
As in the child-like state.

about Silence
disturbs it.

going on a silence retreat.
I told him, better not
take your mind with you then.

My words will not
fill your mind,
they will empty it.

When you look inside;
if you can't focus your mind,
what are you going to see?

Being in debt
is not a
laughing matter.

Do you want
Enlightenment
or your concept of
Enlightenment?

Acceptance

If the only flowers
on the Planet were roses
it would be quite boring.

The violence is

In order to get well
it has to come out.
There are only two ways
the violence can come out;
hard, physical labor & war.

You can't have stability
without discipline.
Without discipline
you are not living;
you are merely existing.

One creates
all their own problems
through what they entertain.

I AM THE DESTROYER OF IGNORANCE.

Taking rest of a night-time
with gratitude in ones heart
ensures a joyous existence.

ANOTHER STORY FROM THE OUTBACK::OFF TO TOWN

The next day, being Saturday, I finished mi work at 12 and by 1 O'Clock
I was showered and in mi good town gear waiting in Burts' old, blue comby Volkswagen for his missus to come out.
"They're all the bloody same, women. All morning she's had to get ready and she's still not here! Go and tell her, Burt said to git a move on or I'll leave her at home!"
I ran across to the kitchen where Kay was,
"Burt says he's gonna leave ya here if ya don't git'a move on, Mrs. Booth."
"Go and tell Burt, I'm on my way." She said.
"She's on her way.", I said to Burt as I climbed into the Comby.
In a few minutes old Kay got in the front of the Comby and said,
"OK! What ya waiting for Burt. I thought ya were in a hurry?"
"Strueth woman, what ya got all that paint and powder on ya face for? You'll scare the Bungs on Chamens Corner half to death when they see you!"
"Very funny Burt. Are you going to drive or are we going to bake ourselves in the Van?"
Old Burt started the comby and we drove down the track, past the dam and out onto the dirt road to Lake Cargelligo. Burts' Comby rattled like hell on the rough dirt road and before long, mi good white shirt was covered in red dust. I didn't feel to bad about it because Kays' white hat with the frill of white lace on it was just the same color as my shirt.
It was exactly 12 miles to Lake Cargelligo from Burts' front gate to the strip of bitumen road, just out of town. It was a relief when the Comby hit the bitumen because the dust stopped coming through the door hinges and the rattles went almost silent. (Lake Cargelligo was like most other Bush towns except that it had a big lake at the end of the street. There was no barrier up so if one was too drunk, they'd end up in the lake and over the years quite a few did.)
There was a few houses on the left and right-hand side of the road as we made our way to the main street. A large new-looking house on the right was the Police Station and next to that was the towns' jail which as all run by Sargent Montgomery. As we drove past the jail to the first intersection, Burt turned right, down the main street. He drove to the end of the street, which was only about 150 yards long, turned the old Comby around before we got too close to the lake and then headed back up the other side of the street to angle park, nose into the curb.
He turned to Kay and said, "Lake Cargelligo, Missus. Don’t spend too much 'cause it's hard to make. I'm off to the pub to cash a cheque so I can pay him his wages. Ya can show him the Main street if ya like. I'll meet ya here in 10 minutes Missus."
It was a really hot day so I got out of Burts' Comby as soon as I could. I'd put too much Brylcream on mi hair and it was slowly running down the back of mi neck.
"Is mi shirt dirty?", I said to Kay.
"Dirty's not the word for it! It's more like muddy. You've got too much hair oil on and it's run all down ya back. Give me ya hanky and I'll clean it up for ya."
"Thanks Mrs. Booth. I'll know not to put so much on next time."
Old Kay was not a bad old sort at times. She was probably stuck with Burt herself, 'cause no one got a divorce in the Bush in those days.
"Let's take a walk up the Main street, Richard.", she said.
"Are there anymore streets?"
"No, Lake Cargelligo isn't a real big place. Theres' only one main street and where we stooped at the end of the intersection is where the shops stop, so it's about one short block long."
We walked up the street a few yards from the pub where we'd parked and outside of the Stock & Station Agents, she spoke to a young lad who looked about 19 years old.
"Hello Robbie.", she said.
"G'day Mrs. Booth. In town shopping are ya?"
"Just came in for a few supplies. This is Richard. He's working at our place."
"G'day mate. My name's Robbie Townsend. What's yours?"
"Richard Swindells, but some people call me 'Yorky'."
"Ya from Yorkshire are ya?"
"Yes,", I said.
"Pleased to meet ya mate.", he said, as we shook hands.
"I'm going into Chamens for some things. Ya can hang out here with Robbie, if ya like Richard."
"Alright.", I said, as she walked off.
"How long ya been out at old Burts' place.", He said, with a smile.
"Just a month now."
"Ya just got here from England, mate?"
"Yeh, I've been here for about 6 weeks now."
"D'ya like it out at old Burts' place?"
"No!", I said. "I think he's a mean old bastard!"
Robbie had a real good laugh at this statement.
"Ya not the first one to say that mate. Old Burt's gone through a few Pommies in his his day."
"What d'ya mean?"
"How much does he pay ya a week, Yorky?"
"Twelve pounds a month, plus tucker.", I said.
"Jesus! That's less than 3 quid a week clear!"
"Where do you work, Robbie?'
"This place, mate. The Stock & Station Agents. Mi old man owns it so I work for him."
"How much a week do you make, Robbie?"
"Fifteen quid a week mate and I pay a couple of quid to mi mum for tucker. We'll have to find you another job, Yorky. No one stays with old Burt too long, I've seen heaps of Pommies come and go through Burts' place, If ya still in town tonight, I'll introduce ya to Surry."
"Who's Surry?"
"He's a Pommy, same as you mate. He's been here a couple of years now. He got sent to Burts' place, just like you. He lasted the longest so far. I think he worked for old Burt for about 9 months, mate."
"Where's he working now?"
"Oh he's on another property about 20 miles out. I think he's sharecropping now. He should make a few quid this year but he'll probably drink it all."
"Does he drink much?"
"He holds the record at the Australian Hotel for drinkin' a yard of beer. Here's old Kay coming back now. I'll see ya later Yorky. I'm gonna' shoot through before she gets here."
Robbie took off back inside his Dads' Agency just as old Kay walked up.
"How did you like Robbie?", she asked.
"He seems like a good bloke but I don't know him very well."
"I've known Robbie since he was a little boy. He was born in Lake Cargelligo. I've got some more shopping to do so you'd might as well look around the town, if you want. The van will be parked here all day and we'll probably stay in town tonight till about 10."
"OK, I'll see ya later.", I said as I waked off down the street.
Going down towards the Lake was a pub. (This pub was known to everyone as 'Twitchys'.) Past Twitchys' place was a couple of small shops, then a hairdressers for women. The next shop was Chamens Garage. After Chamens was a couple of houses, then nothing at all but dry, flat ground. Sometimes the lake used to flood in wet weather right up to the Bitumen at the streets end. Across the other side of the street was a tool shop, a few more houses and another pub called The Australian Hotel. Next to that was a dirt street, then came Ray Orrs Barber Shop. The Barbers shop was of great interest to me because in the window there was fishing rods, knives and guns. I decided to go into Orrs shop and inquire about a rifle. Ray Orr was cutting a customers hair when I entered the small, but compact, shop. It was a typical Bush barbers shop. There was just about everything one could think of hanging of hanging on the walls or stacked in he corner.
"G'day." He said, as I entered the shop. "Something I can get ya?"
"No thanks, just browsing around."
"Where are ya from mate?", he asked as I walked around.
"I'm working at Burt Booths place."
"Ah, ya must be Burts' new Pommy are ya?"
"I guess so."
"Old Burt's due in here today sometime. He gets his hair cut once a month, regular as clockwork."
"How much are the .22s'?"
"Oh they start at 8 pounds.", he said, as he handed me a rifle. "She's a single-shot Anshultz. Just got it in last week."
"Burt won't let me have a rifle on his place, but as soon as I get another job I'll come in and buy one off ya."
"No worries mate. Make ya self at home. I can even give ya a haircut, if ya want one."
"Maybe next time.", I said, as I looked around his shop.
When I was through looking, I said "Thanks a lot."
"No worries mate. Anything I can do for ya, let me know."

Next to the Barbers was a Dry Cleaners which was also owned by Ray Orr. Next to that was Rodds Clothes shop. Then came a Café, another Stock Agents called Dalgerys and then The Commonwealth Bank.
Now I was back at the intersection where we'd turned into the main street. Across the street, on the same side, was a movie House and a Coffee Bar belonging to old Theo. There were a couple of vacant blocks, then another pub called Gilltraps. Next to Gilltraps Hotel was a residential street and way up the Main Street was another Garage. (Oh, the Post Office was next to Twitchys' Pub and, as far as I can remember, that was about it except for Chamens Store on the opposite side of the street. Oh yeh, there was also one more Bank next to Chamens.)
Lake Cargelligo was quite a small place in 1964. Once I'd made mi rounds of the Main Street there was nothing else to do but hang out under a shady tree, down by the Lake.

The most common form of entertainment at Lake Cargelligo was, of course, the 3 Hotels. The double doors were wide open when I passed by and I could see that the place was packed with Cockies and workers. All were drinking and most were reading the race page or listening to the Saturday afternoon races.

Later on that evening I met Surry who was sat on the Hotel steps, drinking with Robbie Townsend.
"G'day. This is mi mate Surry that I was telling ya about."
"Hello.", I said, as I leaned over to shake his hand.
"This is Yorky, Surry. He'ls out slaving at old Burts' place."
"G'day Yorky. Surry's the name and Surry's where I'm from. So ya out at old Burts' property are ya?"
"Yes."
"Does the old Bastard feed ya parrots and kangaroo steaks?"
"How d'ya know""
Robbie and Surry had a good laugh at my expense.
"'Cause the old Bastard fed me the same!" said Surry. "Tll I wised up a bit. Just refuse to eat those fuckin' parrots, mate. You'll break ya teeth on those tough bastards!"
"He said everyone eats roos and parrots in the Bush.", I said.
"Then he's a fuckin' liar. He's a miserable old bastard is Burt and his brother Dick is worse! Dick is so tight he doesn't eat strawberry jam."
"Why? Is it expensive in Australia?"
They both laughed out loud.
"No mate, ya silly pommy bastard! He doesn't eat strawberry jam 'cause he's too tight to pass the seeds!"
"Now that's fucking tight!", said Robbie and they had another good laugh.
"Old Kay's not a bad sort though.", said Surry. "There's a young Sheila around here the doctors said would never walk again, on account of an accident, but old Kay worked on her legs for one year and now she can walk again. She's pretty good at that therapeutic massage. I hurt mi back one day out at Burts' place. I fell off the Combine with a 180 pound wheat bag on mi back and I couldn't hardly move and she fixed it up inside a week."
Surry told me a lot of stories about Burt, most of them bad. By the time I left them I was now more determined to get off his place and work somewhere else.
As I was leaving, he called out to me.
"Good luck mate, you're gonna need it!", then laughed his head off again.

After I left Surry and Robbie on the Hotel steps, I ran into Burt and Kay up the street aways.
"How d'ya like the town?", said Burt.
"It's not real big but I've met a few people already."
"Ya won't have to get to know people here. They'll all get to know you."
"Grand Streuth!, said Burt. "There's a fight! Let's go and see."
Across the street on Chamens corner was a crowd of black people rolling around the ground in rags, as pissed as parrots.
"Who are those blokes, Burt?", I said.
"They're all Abos , mate. It's Saturday night and they're full of Plonk. We'll get to see a real good show now. That is, till old Sargent Montgomery arrives."
"I thought Aborigines carried spears and boomerangs?"
"Not these blokes. These bastards are half white. All they carry is a bottle of Plonk.", he said, as I followed him up to the opposite corner.
"What's Plonk?"
"Plonk's a cheap brown Muscat wine. It costs 4 bob for a half-gallon flagon. They go crazy with a gut full a' Plonk in 'em. Here we go mate, she's on now!"
I felt really compassionate towards the Aboringines as they called each other 'black bastards' and rolled around on the street corner drinking and fighting with each other. Their clothes were old, dirty and tattered. One had a shirt with a sleeve torn off and another had on a pair of odd shoes with no socks. Another had on a pair of trousers with holes in the knees. Another had no shirt at all. Even the women were getting into the fight now and they could curse and swear better than the men. Some of the Abo women were twice as big as their men and they could fight better as well.
The fight lasted for about 10 minutes until Sargent Montgomery arrived in his blue Bullwagon with a young constable.
"Alright you black bastards!", said the Sargent. "In the wagon ya go! Ya can sober up and cool off in the cell for the evening."
The Sarg and his Constable grabbed the drunk Abos by anything they could and literally threw them in the back of the Bullwagon. He left the women and took all the men up the street to the local jail.
"Ah well, that's the excitement over Saturday night.", said Burt.
"What will happen to them now?", I asked.
"They'll sleep on the concrete floor for the night and in the morning the old Sarg will make 'em weed his garden 'cause they'll have no money for the fine. The old Sarg has the best-kept garden in Lake Cargelligo. He knows all those Bungs by their first names by now and by the time Sunday night comes, they'll all be back in jail again."
"Why doesn't someone help them?"
"Can't help the bastards, mate. They're all past helping. Everyone of 'em is an alcoholic. They spend every bit of their money on Plonk and they won't work again till there's no money left. Even then, they won't work until they're hungry."
That, unfortunately, was my first introduction to the Australian Aborigines. Before we went back out to the Bush, one of 'em bit me for 2 bob and I couldn't refuse him, although I knew he would spend it on Plonk.
That night, I lay on mi bed thinking about the Aborigines. It made my heart incredibly sad to see what a tragic state they were in. Most people, in the Bush, saw them as not much better than dogs.

A master violinist played a first-class concert. After the concert, whilst in his dressing room, an important newspaper critic visited him.
"I would like to congratulate you on your concert." Said the critic. "That violin that you played is the best sounding violin that I have heard for many a long year."
The master violinist walked over to where the violin case was sitting. He popped the locks, opened the lid, put his ear to the violin and listened.
He turned around and said to the critic, "Funny that, I cannot hear a thing!"

HOW DOES ONE DEVELP TRUST?

Q:
How do you get hundreds of millions of people to pull together for the benefit of the whole?
A:
Create a common enemy.
*
*





Only a detached man
can truly feel
the depth of
the human heart.
*
*





Why
want it for yourself
when you could
give it to yourself
at any time?
*
*





While you keep thinking it
I will keep living it.
See you at home.
*
*







People who have
Direct Knowledge of the Divine
do not look for recognition from anyone.
They have already given it to themselves.
*
*






One develops trust
by diving
into the
unknown.
*
*





There is nothing
that makes one
respect food more
than the lack of it.
*
*







Man shall
destroy
himself.
*
*







The abuse of power
affects all men.
*
*







A man once asked me if I could give him a direct experience of God.
"Yes", I said.
"How?"
I asked him if he could swim.
He said "No."
"Great", I said.
Then I threw him in the Ocean.
*
*




I appeared empty-handed
& I will disappear
empty-handed.
*
*





It helps tremendously
taking a 'hands-off'
approach to life.
*
*






The situation decides
the correct course of action.
The situation
is the compass.
Respond appropriately &
I'll see you when you get home.
*
*





I have never really had
a life to call my own.
Looking at you,
I realize how fortunate I am.
*
*






When you know
what you are not
you don't need validation.
*
*





When a Society is built
on a foundation of violence
no good can come of it.
That is why all Empires have fallen.
*
*





Violence can only be
suppressed for so long.
*
*






The building bricks of a Society are the children. They sit directly on the foundation. Everything is built on top of them. The children are always the first that violence destroys. The rest is history.
*
*




Awareness
manifests it.

If you have a God
then you have to
have its' opposite.
Such is the
nature
of
duality.
*
*









The government is a
reflection of the people,
unless you want to
play the 'blame-game'.
*
*














True freedom &
responsibility
are inseparable.
*
*













Do not expect to
maintain the state of freedom
with totally inappropriate responses.
*
*














Governments can
only act as
you allow them to.
*
*


















Homeland security is
an internal state of being,
not a piece of paper with
man-made laws written upon it.
*
*



















When you are not prepared to die for your constitutional rights, then do not complain when they are taken from you. I can guarantee you, there is not one politician alive who would be prepared to die in order to uphold your rights!
*
*



















My integrity
is priceless.
It cost me
my worldly success.
*
*

























I can not recall the amount of times I have told people in power positions to 'go fuck themselves' rather than bend to their will, in the false hope of gaining a few extra shekels! I would rather depart this plane of existence a total unknown than sacrifice one gram of integrity.
*
*






















I once made a business deal with a man I met in Las Vegas where we had an art gallery a few years back. A couple of days later, I asked him how the PR work was advancing. His answer was, "Well, it's not easy you know. When you go out there you have to kiss a lot of ass." "Not so." said I. "I don't understand", said he. "I do not and have never had to kiss-ass. You have done and still do. That is why I am giving you 20% from the sales."
*
*



















I have been on my death bed on numerous occasions and I can tell you, first-hand experience, my whole life flashed before me in a nanosecond. Every single detail of it. I am not unique. The same thing will happen for you. You will then be fully aware of what life is really about, but by that time it will be too late; You will have missed the whole point.
*
*






















I once watched a man choke to death on his own blood, due to the fact that the steering wheel crushed his chest in a head-on collision with another vehicle. I could not save his life so I whispered the Mantra in his right ear. It was the greatest parting gift that I could give him. What a pity he received it on his death-bed due to the fact he had forgotten it on his birth-bed.
*
*





















In the beginning
was the word.
There is nothing
in this Universe
of greater value
than the Mantra.
It is the be-all
& end-all of everything.

The difficulties in life
are there to remind one

Wherever he goes

*
*
















The Silent Witness of Karma
is watching you 24/7.
Beware.
*

Your actions in this world
are the building blocks
*
*



















A balanced mind is an absolute necessity for the survival of name, shape & form; otherwise, man destroys himself.
*
*






















Someone once told me there is a party going on in New York tonight. "No, there isn't.", said I. "Not unless I'm there!" The same applies to you. There is no world unless you are there.
*
*


















There are times when
I have so much fun
with my insanities
& at other times
it's quite worrying.
*
*

















The Truth,
warts & all.
*
*



















That's why I stay in the Now.
I don't want to think
what's coming tomorrow.
*
*


















In the Now
tomorrow
never

*
*

















I am the only man on this Planet who, as a child, fed a big bully a toasted Mothers Pride - dog shit sandwich. He even asked for a second helping; I kid you not. I gave him his karma back.
*

Telling lies is hard work,
you have to remember them.
The Truth is much easier,
there's nothing to remember.

It is a natural impulse

TALE OF THE LURCHER DOG

Photobucket
Mi chickens had stopped laying eggs by now so the small amount of money I'd made out of them had all but dried up. It was probably the best thing all around because it was not long before I was due to leave home and go to Australia. There were no more forms to fill in and I'd already been for my medical and was pronounced fit and in good sound health.

The agreement I had with Jim Bailey was to return his money that he had invested in the hens as soon as I killed and dressed them and sold them off to some of the school teachers.

Around this time, Trevor Davies had a friend who wanted to sell one of his Lurcher dogs. He only wanted 10 bob for it. Somehow I managed to scrape together the money. Thinking about it now, I probably sold off some of mi old toys that I would no longer be needing. Trevor said one of his friends would deliver the Lurcher dog at my hen hut on Friday night so I would have to get busy cleaning out the hen shit and scrubbing the walls down so as to make it a suitable home for the Lurcher to live in. Mi mother still had Raja, the Springer Spaniel so there was no chance, whatsoever, that she would let me keep it in the house.

By the time Friday night arrived the new doghouse was spotless and a bag of wood shavings had been thrown around the floor to make it nice and comfortable for mi new Lurcher. As I was waiting for the boy to show up with the Lurcher, I was thinking about how good it would be to walk over the hills again, looking for rabbits and hares. When the boy arrived, I gave him the 10 bob and took possession of the Lurcher. The Lurcher didn't seem to want to stay with me but the boy said, "It's only because he's used to living with other dogs in a shed, just like this one. Don't worry about his trying to get out, he'll get over it in a couple of days."

That evening, I spent a good 3 hours sitting in the new dog shed with the Lurcher. No matter how much love I gave it, the dog just kept right on scratching at the door, trying to get out. In the end, I locked the door so no one could steal it and went off home to have a cup of tea and off to bed.

On Saturday morning, I got up early and went down to me hut to check on mi new dog. Everything looked normal and quiet as I approached the front of the door. I banged on the wooden door a few times to see if the Lurcher was a good guard dog as well as a hunter. After 3 or 4 loud knocks there was no sign of barking so I opened the lock and pushed the door in a little ways so the dog would not bolt through the open doorway. Sticking mi head around the side of the door, to my shock and amazement there was no Lurcher dog in sight.
'Oh Shit!', I thought. 'He's escaped somehow.' When I made a detailed investigation of the shed, I found that he had forced his way through the backside wall of the old shed. In the back wall of the shed was a large piece of tin, which had been nailed on the wall from the outside. The Lurcher must have been jumping up at the tin all night and finally broken the nails out of the old rotting boards and forced his way between the gap and was now long gone!
I had no idea where Trevors' friend lived so I would have to go up to Trevors' house and tell him what had happened. After I found Trevor and told him the story, he said "The dog has been living with other Lurchers for 2 years so it will be difficult to keep it in for a while but it should get used to it. I'll go over to mi friends house. For sure it will have found its way home by now."
"All right Trev.", I said. "You go to your mates place and I'll fix up the shed where he got out and I'll wait for you at the shed. You can bring the dog back there and tonight I'll chain him up so he can't get out again."

All afternoon I worked at making the shed more dog-proofed and by the time I had finished fixing it up much better, it was getting late and no Trevor had arrived. Just as I was about to leave, I saw Trevor walking down the front of Boston Street towards my newly converted doghouse.
"Hello Trevor, where's the Lurcher. Did you find it?"
"No Dick. I went down to mi pals dog hut and they said it had not come back there, but as soon as it does they'll let me know and we can go and pick it up, alright?"
"All right mate. That's about all we can do."

That Saturday evening as I was sat at home, watching the Telly, a knock came on the door. I jumped up and said, "I'll get it. It's probably for me. I'm expecting mi friend Trevor to call." When I opened the door there were 2 strange boys standing there with a large grain bag at their feet. I closed the door behind me so Iris and Jim couldn't hear anything.
"Your name Dick Swindells?", said the biggest boy.
"Yeh, why? What do you want?" I said to him.
"We brought the Lurcher back for you.", he said.
"Oh, that's real good of you, but where is it?"
"It's in the bag, dead.", said the other boy. "Got run over by a car when it was trying to get home to the other dogs."
"Oh shit!", I said. "But why did you bring it here if it's dead!"
" 'cause you bought it from our pal and he says it's your problem now, so here it is. We'll see ya later."
They left the large sack, with the dead Lurcher in it, on mi mums' step, then turned around and walked away, up Boston Street and out of sight.
'Bloody hell, now what do I do? I've lost mi 10 bob and now I've got a dead dog in a sack sitting on mi mums' back step. If she finds out, there will be hell to pay for this. I opened the back door and said to mi mum, "I'll be back in a few minutes, I'm just off down to mi hen shed."
"Don't be more than a quarter of an hour or you'll be in trouble when you get back!", said Jim Bailey.
'In trouble.', I thought. 'I can't get into much more trouble tonight, even if I tried!'
I grabbed he end of the sack and threw it over my shoulder, then made mi way up the street and down to the hen shed. Halfway down the front of Boston Street I ran into a boy called Ernest Hargraves. He was about 18 years old and had red, fiery hair and a face full of freckles. He also wore thick bifocals, which made him look like a real geek. Because he was so big no one ever teased him or anything.
"Where are you going with the sack, Dick? You look like a real burglar", he said.
Earnest was always in trouble with the Police and they came after him for all sorts of crimes, but he was too smart for them, most of the time.
"Hello Earnest. I'm in real trouble now. I've got a dead Lurcher in the sack and I don't know what the hell to do with it and if mi mother finds out, she'll bloody well beat me!"
"What the fucking hell, are you doing with a dead Lurcher in a sack?"
After I explained the whole story to him, he said, "Tell you what I'll do with ya Dick. You give me half-a-crown for some fags and I'll get rid of the dead Lurcher for you."
"I haven't got half-a-crown Earnest."
"OK, you can owe it to me. Pay me in a week or so, I may be really broke by then and half-a-crown will come in right handy!"
As I contemplated it, half-a-crown seemed really cheap. It was not much money in comparison to the big dead problem that was slung across mi back, in a bag.
"It's a deal, Earnest!", I said as I handed him the bag. "But what are you going to do with it?"
"Oh, don't you worry about that Dick. It's my problem now, not yours."
"All right Earnest if you say so. I'll have your money sometime within the week."
We shook hands and parted company.
'What a great bloke Earnest is.', I thought as I walked off back up the street. 'He solved all my problems for half-a-crown and to me that's well worth it'.

A few nights later, I'd been out playing with a few friends and was now on mi way home. I always had to be aware of the time because Jim Bailey was sat at home, just waiting for me to be late so he could say, "What time do you call this Lad?", but tonight, I had time to spare as I shoved open Boston Street door. As I walked inside, I saw there was a stranger sat on one of the guests' chairs and the house was unusually quiet.
"Hello everybody.", I said, in a rather cheerful voice.
"This gentleman is a Railways Inspector." said mi mum, whose voice was in the fire mode.
"Oh, that's nice." I said. "It must be a really interesting job you have, is it?"
"I'y, it's a great job. There's never a dull moment. I get to investigate all sorts of crimes. Take, for instance, today. About 2 O'clock this afternoon one of the Engineers mates was filling up one of the steam engines with water out of the large overhead water tanks and what do you think he found floating on the top of the water?"
Now he had aroused my curiosity, so I said, "It could be anything, so I've really got no idea at all."
"Well, in that case let me tell you. The Engineers mate found a dead Lurcher dog."
The shocked look on my face must have been obvious as Iris, Jim Bailey and the railway inspector all stared at me.
"Would you like to tell me about it Richard?" he said.
There was no choice but to tell the inspector the whole story, after which he said, "If I was you, I would not have any more dealings with Earnest Hargraves. We know who he is because he's been stealing things from the railways' yard for years but we haven't been able to catch him at it, but seeing as you are supposed to pay him for getting rid of the dog, we may still be able to get our teeth into him at long last."
After the Railway Inspector left, mi mother hit the roof!
I won't bore you with the gory details, but she ran 'true to form'. I never saw Earnest again after that because there was only a few more months to go before I left for Australia, and he never came around the area where I lived anymore. That was the last I ever heard of Earnest and the Lurcher.
