It’s not that no one cares…

wp_20170109_8591

It’s not that no one cares, it’s just no one knows what to do!!

It’s not that no one cares, from preacher to absent mothers to doting teachers and self help coaches.
It just that no one really knows what to do to fix the big mess the earth is in!! At the best some bury their heads in the sand or run away, to avoid the pain of reality. At the worse, some claim to have the solution with lofty ideals but unwittingly or sometimes deliberately prey on others. Selah

Both scenarios, and there are more, are only following the flow of nature as it stands today. An amoeba will move away from a region of unpleasant stimulus conversely, a lion will prey on another! C’est la vie!

It seems no amount of motivational training, or positive thinking can change the order of things. Do I sound like the preacher in the book of Ecclesiastis? When he says, “all is folly, just eat, drink and be merry” Aha!

Hence to the dismay of many, clambering at the base of the 3-4-5 triangle.
Scrimping & scratching, and even the guru knows, he or she doesn’t know, and feels like a fraud when eventually reaches out to the ones he seeks to help with a collection tray!

Anyway, what do I know!!!

I’m tired of the charade of “church”

instagramcapture_0eceaacf-58f9-4350-9bf0-7f7349f46aa4

Im tired of the charade that guises under the umbrella of “church” seemingly the last place you will find “love” these days, where your light, you fuel, with bellows you keep alight yet still the “church” constantly dim. You pray, you cry, you dance, you sing, no matter what you do, if you dare to be different and not conform, you get persecuted from the very ones who dine with you!! Alas, the usual response, the familiar response, skilfully used by the rod of abuse. Blame shifting, quote a scripture, blame the victim, justify your action. Cite an example from the assemblage of books. Judas, Brutus, betrayal, what do you expect, etc, etc
I’m tired of the charade that guises under the umbrella of “church” where love stands at the door and knocks!

Solangu’s Tale

wp_20161011_1965

THE CHILD SAID, “I DON’T WANT TO BE THE PARENT ANYMORE!”

What is it with so called peeps who have been brought up in so called happy, normal family  settings always looking down their noses at us so called misfits, orphans, bastard children like it was any fault of ours that we were born! In spite of how hard we work and fight to stay alive we still get the sense of “abnormalcy” and the feeling of being a fraud around these “perfectly” nuclear family types who constantly gloat about, “my mummy this, my sister that”, “we’re  having a family outing this, ooo its grandmas 80th that”

And if that’s not enough, the constant having to either explain yourself or make up a fictional family story at Xmas for example so you don’t  seem odd for not, “going home for Xmas!” Even more annoying is when a well wisher choses to have an opinion about your so called “biological” parents and jumps to defend them, “ooo it must have been difficult for them, or it must have been hard for parents to have conversations, etc!”

Ok, stop with the making excuses for irresponsible, abusive parents for crying out loud and think of the child and how difficult it was and still is for the child! You say you don’t understand but you never want to ask or learn from the child! Ask me if you don’t understand and stop using the “no one is perfect” excuse as an excuse to constantly re-abuse the child!! I’m sorry it doesn’t wash with me anymore!!!

Enough is enough, I’m tired of being the parent to my incubator and her other incubates. I’m tired of having to be cautious not to distress so called “normal” people by having to dumb down my story so as to be agreeable to you! I’m tired of people who want to be friends but only on their terms. I can tell you now it’s not gonna work, once I get real, yes, you probably won’t be able to handle the real me. And yes, it’ll explain why you’d get offended when I say, I DON’T TRUST YOU, cos I don’t just trust anybody anymore!

…she walked along the patchy footpath, taking in the fresh smell of spring and of yellow daffodils. You could almost reach up and scoop a peace of fluffy cloud like candy floss at the spring fete…

Stop trying to “sort” your life out (pt IV) Creative Storming

WP_20160204_6552.jpgNext easy tips

Creative Storming

Summon the creative genius within you!
Summon your creative powers,
We all have this within us.

Write something down, anything.
Do a “Streams of Consciousness” exercise to get yourself going! ie write whatever comes to mind.

You can do this on paper, on a phone, tablet, wall, important thing is to capture whatever is on your mind!! 😊

Or

If you have specific tasks overwhelming you, write them down!

If you don’t know what to do, write down that you don’t know what to do!

Just write something, anything!

You can do this by yourself or with a friend for fun.

I call these:

Creative summoning & storming sessions!

You can also do:

Spider charting on paper or sketch book, etc
Or listings:
Write a list of things to do (The conventional “To Do” list)
You may write as many lists as you like in any order.

Remember to have fun with whichever creative summoning and storming tool you use!!
