Show Appreciation!

We are consciousness examining and expressing itself so that it can become increasingly aware
of its infinite capacity for being and evolving.

Our intentions express and create our reality just as if we were dreaming lucidly.
Which is the highest level on the hollow-deck, wake or dream, or even death?

Good dreams can be inspirations to bring in to make reality fantastic enough to share.

We are the wilderness within
Screaming out for true expression.
Even when we’re sleeping,
There’s no escape from this obsession.


Julia is a Writer, Life Coach, Stress Consultant, Counsellor, and Healer.
She specializes in Total Wellbeing Consultations via phone & email -
and in writing inspirational & support materials - See our TOOLKIT & CREATIVITY Pages
"We are for Total Holistic Wellbeing, including Heart, Mind, Body, and Spirit."

Julia has several
BOOKS forthcoming, about living in a more CONSCIOUS and objective way,
using our awareness and intention to evolve beyond the constructs of apparent reality,

thus becoming able to plan one's own life as you would choose.
There are more BOOKS coming, and there is an opportunity to join in with one called "Back to The Garden".

Each pain is Unbearable / yet Trifling
Seeing the TRUTH is Excruciating / yet Exquisite
Through Laugher & Tears / Grinning & Fear, we face our demons.

My sense of humour often gets me into trouble due to people taking it too seriously!
My curiosity sometimes gets me into trouble too. I wouldn’t want to be without either of them though!

Try not to spoil kids too much as it leads to unrealistic expectations from life which leads to immature responses
to situations and people. Real love seeks to teach truth & balance.

Bankers are like spoilt brats who have grown up without understanding love.
They’re addicted to power & greed because for them that’s all there is.

If all our needs were met and we didn’t have any questions, life wouldn’t be all that stimulating.
Does boredom lead to playing twisted power games?

Even people who don’t have their few basic needs met can become incredible human beings
if their spirit is strong enough to survive.

If the spirit of wonder & curiosity stays alive in us, then surely we will always have new questions,
and always expand our creativity in response.

Even cats have questions – like “Can’t you see my bowl is empty?” or
“Why don’t you turn off the ***! rain now?” From their perspective we are gods!

There is an imperative to be in a process, the energy & consciousness of life means for us to be constantly
observing, learning & becoming.

The world is playing –
All the nations singing their hearts out
and I am just another one
happy to join in –
dancing in the stream of consciousness.

In the forest lichen writhes and assembles itself into signs to light my path through the deep dark north shadow;
and I emerge at last onto a hillside strewn with logogrammatic stones, and scramble away from spruce tops."
in the poem "Beyond the Beacon" from the book “Terra Affirmative”.

Words to intrigue, inspire, examine, question, praise;
Words to help us appreciate our world, our selves, our games;
Words to dance our true soul fires gracefully free.

Words to invoke peace & awareness. Words to create freedom and fairness.
Words to plant sacred seeds. and sing us back into balance.

Look everywhere. There are miracles and curiosities to fascinate and intrigue for many lifetimes:the intricacies of nature
and everything in the world and universe around us from the miniscule to the infinite; physical, chemical and biological
functionality; consciousness, intelligence and the ability to learn; evolution, and the imperative for life; beauty and other
abstract interpretations; language and other forms of communication; how we make our way here and develop social patterns
of culture and meaningfulness; how we organise ourselves and others; moral imperatives; the practicalities of survival and
all the embellishments we pile on top; thought, beliefs, logic, intuition, ideas; inventing, creating, information, knowledge;
emotions, sensations, experience, behaviour.
We are each unique individuals arising from a combination of genetic, inherited, and learned information, all of which can be
extremely fallible. Things taught to us when we are young are quite deeply ingrained. Obviously some of it (like don’t stick
your finger in a wall socket) is very useful, but some of it is only opinion – an amalgamation of views from people you just
happen to have had contact with. A bit later on we have access to lots of other information via books, media, internet etc,
but it is important to remember that most of this is still just opinion, and often biased.
Even subjects such as history are presented according to the presenter’s or author’s viewpoint, and science is continually
changing. Newspapers and TV tend to cover news in the way that is most useful to them (and their funders/advisors).
Research is also subject to the decisions of funders and can be distorted by business interests. Pretty much anyone can say
what they want on the internet, so our powers of discernment need to be used to a great degree there too.
Not one of us can have a completely objective view as we cannot possibly have access to, and filter, all knowledge available,
so we must accept that our views are bound to be subjective. Our understanding and responses are all very personal, and
our views extremely varied.
We tend to make each new thing fit in with the picture we have already started in our heads,
but we often have to go back and adjust the picture if we want to be honest about our view of reality as we continually
expand it. We are taking in vast amounts of information from others all the time, so need to ensure we are processing that
to develop our own true reflection of who we are.

“I was moved beyond words. The train ride over the mountains from lake Titticaca to Cusco
reminded me of Africa where I grew up; and 4 days walking on the Inca Trail, then more in the jungle,
just magnificent - time, space, and splendour. Our planet is superb!”

Green and living jewels drip into my eyes" from the poem "All Green and Living Things" in the book "Terra Affirmative”

From the Prize winning poem - UNBORN in the book “Terra Affirmative”:
Under the surface / her body is curled, / seed of the one race, / shell of the world. // She is the waterfall, / she is the womb, /
she is the bubble, /she is the tomb. // Her hair flows upward, / blood red of the birth. / Her arms are folded /
deep into the earth. // She is the fern, / she is the bark, / she is the lantern, / she is the dark. // Her eyes burn the flame /
of the old and the young. / Her breath is the name / of each branch of each lung. // She is the ingredient. / She is the blend. /
She is the beginning. / She is the end.”

“... as we travel again between life and death,
Waking and dream, blinking, while layers within layers,
None better, none worse, unravel and knit up before us . . .”

“What destiny is there, but to sense, observe, merge, re-emerge,
Empty, yet filled, spreading everywhere, inside, outside, in,
Pulsing, fluctuating, breathing as part of one being,
Whispering, feeling, reflecting, flowing between hot and cold,
Mineral and plant, dark and light, love and fear, new and old.”

Love ENDURES and works out ways of enduring the other stuff. As long as you can communicate you can work out issues,
but good communication seems to be one of the weakest skills in human beings, so don't be afraid to try and try different
ways of communicating, be patient. Don't be afraid of seeking help either - the chance to keep love alive is too important
to let fear get in the way.

Instead of letting our emotions run amok, we can use our minds as tools to build or create realities that serve us better.

We attract what we're meant to because we're aware & self-empowered enough to choose most of the time.
Other times we have lessons to learn.

When being objective, we can transcend and look back at our constructs with powerful clarity;
instead of looking through them, which can give a murky and distorted view.

We celebrate beauty in life and all its possibility so we open it up for others and at the same time for ourselves.

Enlightenment is not about cocooning one’s self, but about integrating more fully with both your self and life.

Needing to express what it’s like here.... / Trying to digest the incoming stream .... / And dream it all over again.

Hungry for beautiful words, the fox comes rooting around in the hedge, almost too close to the fire.
He reads my mind with one glance and is gone.
All my poetry is now trotting around the bushes inside him, maybe some day to be partly eaten or left to rot.
He understands being alive for as long as he can be, and does not worry about why, or what might happen afterwards.

World & people only seem unlovable due to toxins & lies they've been fed.
Release distortions of mind. Return all to innocence & freedom”

There isn’t a good side and a bad side of you or of anybody,
so there’s no need to be at war with yourself or anyone or anything at all.
All we are is a bunch of dozy people in the process of waking up.
All we really need to do is try gently to be open to continuing that process.
It’s no good getting worked up about stuff – it’s better to relax and laugh at our mistakes,
then figure out how to learn from them and move on.

Every moment we are new and full of infinite possibility as we are part of ALL.”

The Holy Grail is within you – find your Inner Treasure.

The world is full of lots of people play acting and hurling stuff about, unconscious of the effects.
And there are large group karmic things going on through history that none of us should ever take personally.
Rushing about trying to rectify the sins of the past is not productive. The best you can do is to be present
as the new you in the now, holding your light as a steady candle to add to the beam of calm and love now spreading
to help wake more and more people up. Hopefully we will evolve as a species to eventually cease
the unnecessary conflict between different groups of ourselves.

I never think of myself as an attacker, only as a defender - usually of rights - mine and others.

Love yourself enough to open your eyes, and open your eyes enough to love yourself.

“Allow the light to fall across you. Shadow or sunlight. Allow it to define your shape. In its way.
Another day it may be different. It surely will be. Are we ever the same? Is the light?
And the way a form presses into the grass?”
from COUNT.
“Count the number of times you have spoken. And really meant what you have said.
Count the number of times you have chosen to keep quiet instead.” from COUNT.

“Count the inspirations. The exquisite inspirations that have whispered in the night. And swum away like fish
in the cool of morning. Would any of them have altered the patterns of your life? The precise arrangement
of your atoms?” from COUNT.

“Count the times. The number of times you have seen the silence of another world seep though a crack.
The number of times you have heard the sea trying to escape from the blue painted wall.” from COUNT.

“Have trembled beneath the pressure of a light beam.” from COUNT.

Notice, when looking at quotes of each person - you'll never agree with every single quote of anybody's.
We all have a different view of reality, of what is meaningful. This is why we can never argue,
or there would be no man left alive - we have to agree to disagree, and just get on with it maybe laugh a little too.
It's wonderful really - delightful - the infinite variety of wisdom and beauty! Let's accept it gladly.

“Inside my head / or in a distant / Galaxy / Soft I hear it / Calling me" from the song "In the Blackness"
in the poetry collection "Terra Affirmative".

“I am permitted to travel in the corridor between sky and heather"
from the poem "Beyond the Beacon" in Terra Affirmative”

“They come here wanting to be loved, and the boys on the stage receive them"
from the poem "STAY" in the Book – Riding The Escalator”

“All in tune with love and the slow world moving"
from the poem "STAY* from the book – Riding The Escalator”

“just a little bit longer, sing: like rain, like sand, like wind in the night, prickling"
from the poem "STAY" from the book "Riding the Escalator”

“like sunlight under their skins, they want to be loved"
from the poem "STAY" in Riding The Escalator”

“The children walk away from me, flick flickety off at a tangent between thin blotched beech trunks,
then turn like yo-yos at the end of their strings and come back to me" from the poem
"In a Bishops Wood Clearing” in the book “Following Father”

“grappling with some small understanding of this place, this time, we're in"
my poem "In a Bishops Wood Clearing” in the book “Following Father”


How can we love ourselves
when we know how many mistakes
we have made, ugly things we’ve done,
even though we know others have done the same?
How can we love rather than despise the human race?
How can we ever know if things would’ve been
any better if we’d done them a different way?
We never MEANT to hurt anybody,
we tried not to, but sometimes
that only ended up increasing the pain.

All we can do is focus on the positive,
the amazing things in the world,
in nature, and even in people’s souls.
There’s always two or more sides to everything.
and also so many shades of grey.
So look for the colours instead, the glorious –
Let yourself explore, be curious –
Create – dance - sing – write – paint –
Often these help release the pain
as well as express and celebrate the joy.

Should we have been born into this world?
Yes, even if only to learn to love despite everything.
Yes, even if only to witness the stream
of consciousness expanding in its infinite variety.
Yes, even if only for a short time to make some sort of difference,
even if only to one other sentient being, a place, or situation.
Yes, even if only to find out that there really aren’t
any answers to all these questions.
Yes, even if we realise that we are making it all up
Or none of it would be there at all.

So, we can love ourselves
because we can see that we are incredible beings
with bodies and minds to allow us to do amazing things,
and we can relish the varied experiences of using them
as well as the results we can achieve.
So we CAN love ourselves
because we can see that there is no reason
not to play and laugh and have fun,
or fight for what we think is right, or should be done,
even if it’s all one massive illusion.

At the end of the day we can at least sit back
and connect with the very essence of being –
the silent steady overwhelming stream of peace. –
and let it flow right through our heads and hearts and blood.
We are just like little bubbles popping out
of the solar wind so that it can watch itself blowing,
and reflect our colours back to the universe.
Whether meaningless or not, you’ve got to admit
it’s an incredible experience, just being here
in all our chaotic patterns, furiously trying to live.
