What you harness inside Grows to become your being So whether hate, love or content You blossom the seeds you plant At the right time, they feed you Pain with be delivered If hate is your intent Take this as a sign That you are meant for more Don't hold onto a promise Or somebody else's lies - of which there are too many Calmly walk through the fire And breath with confidence Unto your life Knowing in heart and mind You did the right thing Rather than succumb to devilish ways Cheap attacks and fake facades Climbing the stairs doesn't make you an angels Unless you know your worth Counted by Osiris in coins Weighed in gold We don't know Until we know That you are there I am here There is one chance, to make things right.
In the final hour of darkness upon which you grew to love came showers of torment and pain had you known you would have given the key away
At some point in life we endure hardship. People will mock, criticise and laugh in your face and at that point, know that you are on the road to success.
“The only way to succeed is to make others hate you”Josef Von Sternberg
The cruel and mean behaviour directed at you is clearly indicative that you are doing well in life or that you are disheartening them in some way. If you did not bother them with your success or ambition, they would not bother you. You are a personal threat to them and that propels them to hunt you down. Anger, fear, jealousy and self-hatred drive the negative individuals insane with obsession, as they are more interested in attacking the strong than looking in the mirror.
When you reach for something more, or desire something else in life and start to ride that journey to a greater place, inevitably and sadly, evil will always be there. As the above quote says, to succeed in life is to make others hate you and it is not a conscious effort. I too have felt the effects of this and it can be wide reaching, meaning you might have experienced it and wondered why. That doesn’t make it right, in fact, quite the opposite. You will find those responsible never aim for something more than they are, they are content to be mundane and boring, and so anything remotely better than them will cause actual feelings of self hate, and one can only pity them.
You need to merely distance yourself and you find that they are too cowardly to do anything about it. They seek to undermine and ruin your life, or so they try, and fail. Honour of the ambitious and the self love and reliance which drives us is enough to be that warrior whos soul is pure and whos mind is clear and driven. Integrity in the successful would be developed and mere fallacies will not phase them. Being honest with yourself is important too as you need to be able to understand your own being and those who spew negativity are detached from honesty, just as they are detached from understanding themselves causing confusion and weakness within them.
Honour the shield of my soul building our rampart standing steadfast on the gate small weeds that grow around the garden shed the light of the sun illuminated my bed you face the roads ahead you have the strength of mountains and the courage of the lion
Love is on my side
Masculine power, upright tower your moans of humiliation are no roadblock on the path of the brave the soldiers and the knowledge seekers you don't spit on my tombstone I see the mirror image of ice translucent memory love is on my side I have seen all that there is to see, on the sinside when the thunder comes raging and bolts of electric shoot through spring air you have the air in the ere grooving night scene mass multitude machine you are the barrier beyond the fold fake Gucci handbags and laced down bottom ups sounds like a load of quarks

Upcoming & New Rock Albums
Upcoming albums that may be of interest to you include Joe Satriani’s Elephants of Mars which can be pre-ordered by clicking this link. It is due to release on the 8th April 2022. Joe has already uploaded a few videos to YouTube about the new album along with songs like ‘Sahara’ and ‘Faceless’, both of which are excellent. Arguably a rock album.
Scorpions have released new album ‘Rock Believer’ on 25th February 2022. An iconic band with some huge songs and albums. Bringing 80’s hair rock to the front of most rock fans minds with classics like ‘rock you like a hurricane.’
Ozzy Osbourne is working on the release of album no.13 after his last album release in 2020, which came ten years after the previous album. He is still active in music, both recording and touring and is available to watch this year at various venues. After Black Sabbath said goodbye way back in 2017, it will be nice to see how to pairing with Tony Iommi on the yet unnamed new album will pay off.
Red Hot Chili Peppers recently got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In Los Angeles they are even bigger, since that is where hey grew up. Creators of 1999 Californication and one of the biggest rock bands in history, have released their 12th album. Their newest creation, called ‘Unlimited Love’ was released in April 2022 is already no. 1 on Amazon under pop and alternative rock.
The most recent headlines are quite concerning as usual. In my previous post I mentioned about the increase in politicians salaries, members of parliament. I think this needs to be revoked or at least given considerable thought to before proceeding. The basic annual salary for a member of parliament in the House of Commons is £81,932 as of April 2020. Members of parliament can also claim allowances to cover the costs of running an office and employing staff, and maintaining a constituency residence or a residence in London. Salary is paid for appointments or additional duties, such as ministerial appointments, being a whip, chairing a select committee or chairing a public bill committee.
The war between Ukraine and Russia rages on. Russian soldiers were recently poisoned en-mass by civilians of Ukraine. Russians have now allegedly been ‘digging up’ the remnants of the Chernobyl incident, which could have them in possession of deadly poisons in no time.
The Taliban having taken over Afghanistan have now banned the growing or cultivation of poppies. Afghanistan being the biggest producer of poppies. Poppies are used to create addictive substances and the group has made it clear they do not want that in their country. Despite what economic impact this could have, or the fact that medicine can be created using them.
There has been a mass shooting in California capital, Sacramento. Six people have been killed and 10 injured in a shooting said to have taken place early morning on Sunday. The shooting took place in the downtown area, which is packed full of bars and restaurants.
Tory MP David Warburton has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital following allegations into his conduct. Allegedly two women have come forward and made formal complaints to the ICGS about his behaviour and a third woman has also made allegations about his conduct. The allegations supposedly relate to sexual misconduct and a claim that he had taken cocaine. Seems like he has had a rough time, maybe the pay rise will help?
Poem ~ Raising Hope
Day she was born
there was a fire raging inside
her smile had met my eyes
reaching for the sky
a innocent glean most loving delight
Short Story ~ Waiting
We all spend some time waiting. She spends most of her time waiting. Today is hot and humid, under the baking sun in Brighton seaside. Lilies, her hand full of the bloomed bunch. She had them trimmed but is now wondering how to get them home before they die in he heat. She is waiting on the scolding pavement for a ticket so she can move her car. Her day had been full of surprises, she thought. When she woke up this morning, she had a call that her bank account had to be unfrozen by her visiting her bank to confirm her identity. She had that twisting in her gullet but she still went into the branch. Her Gucci sunglasses gave her the cover she needed to discretely roll her eyes, just as she was doing now, third in the queue.
Sun was approaching midday and with every passing second bullets of sweat beaded along her forehead. She had no tissues, only issues. Whoever stood in front, some overweight, light blue Hawaiian shirt wearing geezer with some straw hat. Oh, God, she thought, he stinks. If her hands weren’t quaking with adrenaline or wrapped around the lilies she might knock his fat ass hat off. Like some sweet moment of synchronicity he left the queue in a huff, waddling away. Her chest sunk as she sighed.
Now what! The man at the machine helping with tickets seemed to be using his walkie talkie, and he looked over to her, which made her shudder at the thought of him coming near her. One of the lilies drooped and fell to the floor and she stood on it, crushing it instantly. It was too much, her free fist balled up and she lunged forward, knocking the lady in front to the side and punching the man on the walkie directly in the face. Her knuckle cracked and the man dropped his walkie talkie. “I’m not waiting anymore for a fucking ticket.”
Standing alone in solitude. Patience. Themes of underlying rage and unresolved emotions. A life of misery made worse by the heat. I guess it was a high pressure situation and it got too much for her.

Wizard ‘White Light’
I have to give a presentation next Monday on the Youth Justice System…
Green tea is very beneficial for you. Wizard frequently drinks it. Apparently the benefits of such tea includes things like improving mood, increasing concentration and assisting in weight loss and sugar control…
Wizard also enjoys trying to use such substances to enhance his mind set when he is meditating. Aside from tea he also manages to write poetry as you know.
He still reiterates that you need love and self love. You need to love yourself and treat your mind and body with respect and remain loyal to God. Gaining all the power you need is easier than you think.
Treat people kindly, eat healthy, try not to spend too much time in front of the TV… you get the point yes? Maybe you consider yourself more than a billboard or advertisement? Personally I agree with Wizard most of the time, he has some interesting things to say. He also highlighted the importance of spending time together, smiling, and having a good time overall. I think you probably should be spending more time together, being ‘you’ and not holding back. Otherwise what is left?
Being British is good. He recommends people to take a moment to appreciate your origins. To really accept and put some faith and loyalty back into your native country. He sees many people nowadays who are abandoning their home countries in search of something better. Hindsight?
Wizards lair is full of smoke sometimes, not the bad kind,maybe more of a myst? Myst as in mystical. Light or inner light that is found and worked using nothing but his bare hands is pretty incredible. Shaping and forming who you are from the inside out, and not the outside in. Being able to distinguish good people instantly, and being able to detect potential danger a mile away. Practice of meditation to strengthen the mind from the noise we all endure on a daily basis. He uses various shades of purple, not a lot though, as too much can be over powering. Purple is the colour of the highest vibrating state and that of the crown chakra. A symbol of Royalty, power and fantasy… To use to much can be akin to arrogance, as once upon a time it was only afforded by the wealthy.

My first real attempt at Haiku. Hopefully I did it correctly and that you enjoyed this.
I have waited forever to be here again brief step in time and the warm white sand gritty on my feet the splashing of waves silence surrounds me I'm here alone the sunsets beneath the water magical and temporary forever I have to go soon reach out to the sea
The Best Quotes From Wizard!
The Wizard let me into his lair today and I briefly smelt what I believed to be brewing tea leaves but actually turned out to just be the smell of some lovely flowers he bought. Some yellow, some white and a few purple with many yet to bloom. He’s got the new vase on his window beside a lit tall white candle. He is fiddling with his new tourmaline tumble stone in his hands as he paces the room. Sunlight beams in and his great purple cloak is translucent, revealing the power beneath as a white shimmering glow. ‘I am honoured,’ I say, sitting in his brown leather armchair, helping myself to some crystalline water beside it in the most magnificent crystal jug.
He hasn’t given me permission to allow you to share, as he says his words are so powerful that only a few may actually read them. You are free to enjoy here, but insists that for safety they do not go any further, for risk of looking rather silly. You can also check out the post on soon to be famous quotes.
Just because I like flowers that does not make me a pansy!Wizard
When I was a boy I had many wands. My favourite I always kept in my pantsWizard

It is one of those days again, release the flying monkeys.Wizard
Bring me a crystal, and a pipe.Wizard
Ever wondered how they get the rabbit in the hat?Wizard
Thanks for reading those selected quotes from the Wizard himself. I had a lovely tea with him and checked how his lilies were doing. They have started to bloom and are the loveliest of lilac, pink and purple in a combination. Closer to pink. I also had a look at his crystals and he said that he prefers to work with them at night, something about the moon. I cannot remember. Anyway have a lovely day!
Emotion of Colour
Colour my soul with your etheric crayons paint my skin with eternal angelic wings caress thy crown with purple lavender
Romans 12:3 – “For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.”
It hertz like love at 5:28 in the afternoon. Scatter the roses on my bed. Spray the oils around our room.
Stay true to the heart and the mind. The green heart chakra that connects us with the green earth. Be assured, your existence is considerable. Have the courage to go on even in self reliance, stand in the dark days of adversary.
Pslam 46:10 – He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Be still, know that everything is energy. That you were born from energy, that you will transmute into a different energy upon departure.
Blue, the colour of forgiveness. My favourite colour. Forgiveness is not weakness. It is acceptance. It is to achieve a higher state of self love and care than a lot of other people. I have been there, I have forgiven. I have felt the reward and been blessed by angels for my actions. You can’t expect to reach the better state of existence without giving it a try. The hardest part is acceptance and then, forgiveness. There is no easy path. You were not born because it was easy. Quite the opposite. You are here because life is a challenging journey. You should never be ashamed of who you are or what you want in life. Good people know in their hearts, that they are good.
I can’t profess to have all the answers, or to be able to give you a lot of information. I cannot give you a lot because you simply have to learn or experience it for yourselves. To rely on others experiences and understanding wouldn’t be fair to yourself or make sense. One journey or life is not identical to another. In turn and time, you will come to realise your own destiny and meaning. Transformation as represented by the butterfly, from larvae to having wings. Just as a hero must take a vast journey to sleigh a great evil. Just as the angels are helping people everyday to get their wings. So too, you shall know in time what it means to fly for yourself.
Forgiveness doesn’t come easily. Although to forgive is to be more powerful, it does not absolve those impure of heart or mind of sin. Repentance is needed. You cannot be expected to forgive without repentance. I don’t think we as humans are expected to go this far, although it does and will continue to happen, because here on earth, there is some incredible people. Bad people supposedly forgiving their evil brothers of sin, are no more enlightened, as their gains and relations are founded on evil intentions.
On that point, time to end.
Luke 12:3-4 – “Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.“
Take care all the best.
