DIY Thesis to Studiopress Genesis (Lifestyle Theme) Migration

Moving from DIY Thesis to Genesis Lifetsyle Obviously, I’ve been posting since this blog took on a new design recently. But here’s a bit about the process and challenges I went through to get here – in case you are interested (I will blog about blogging occasionally), or if there are any bloggers reading. Choice […]


What’s Benjamin Fulford saying thesedays?

Benjamin Fulford – what’s he saying? So I was trawling through some old posts under the Popular section in the sidebar. This section was a eye opener  in the process of having this blog redesigned, as it shows the most commented posts. I saw that, compared with others, with comments at the 15 – 18 […]


“Waking Life” – Animation Film (Watch Free)

Watch Waking Life Animation Film (Watch Free) Waking Life is an American live-action rotoscoped animation film, directed by Richard Linklater (same director of recent film Boyhood).

The Right to Die – Former Archbishop Does U-Turn on Assisted Dying

Existential Despair and Soren Kierkegaard (& Blog Update)

Sometimes I try to express the thoughts that come into my mind and fail miserably. Is my view of the world quite so different to that of others? When I talk to others it would seem to be so. I don’t anymore have the attachment to interests society upholds as the purposes of our lives, […]

Is The Sun Rising On Sungazing?

Excuse the (sort of) pun in the title of this post, but I do love a play on words. Sungazing is a comparatively little-known practice that most people have not heard of. However there is a small number of people who do sungazing and since last year, weather permitting in the UK (that’s the big […]

Movie: My Dinner with André (1981)

Unconventional and thought-provoking film Thought some of the readers here might like to watch it. It’s about 110 minutes long. I enjoyed it a lot – the ideas portrayed were not unfamiliar and great to see them encapsulated in a movie in this way. Here’s Wikipedia’s synopsis and here is a review by the New […]


Benefits of Drinking Warm Lemon Water First Thing in the Morning

This post is all about the many, many benefits of lemons. I have been drinking lemon juice in warm water first thing in the morning for some years now on and off, and in recent times religiously everyday for the last 1-2 years. Basically, warm lemon water in the morning helps kick start the digestion […]

The Recent Akram Vignan 2014 UK Shibir (Retreat)

Over Easter I was at the Akram Vignan UK Shibir (retreat) – and such a wonderful 5 days it was. I was on a natural bliss-high for a week after. About 800 people attended, and it took place at a Pontins holiday place in Suffolk – a bit like Butlins! Essentially – basic, comfortable-enough accommodation […]
