They said the third world war would not be fought with weapons, they were right.

They said it would be the war to end all wars… now that is up to us!

In the grips of control, with a mandatory injection of yet another biological warfare, we have choice…

Why do you care about the environment, the natural living world?

I am reading an extraordinary book at the moment by Charles Eisenstein. He asks the question of why did you become an environmentalist, an advocate for nature?

So I actually sat down with this question, and what arose was…

Each generation is vastly different to the last. We are indeed very adaptive and manipulative creatures… but there is more to it.

Generations of children are born with specific gifts for human evolution. I am in the wave of rainbow children. Rainbow children can really be born in any point…

I grew up in a family where being a hard worker was the most important quality to develop… didn’t matter what the work was, but obviously it had to earn you money and be accepted by mainstream society… well, this is all in my fathers eyes anyway… and in doing…

I sit between a sacred land and a big cargo ship, docked, puffing out black soot.

I know, whenever I feel something really strong and magical moving across the landscape, that it is a sacred site. For years now I have known this. For years now I have being shocked…

Tasmanian, a land of water, mountains and ancient rainforests… A land that will take you in and change you forever. Lutruwita is the Indigenous (true) name for this land. They were some of the most impacted people’s in the European invasion. Those who were not massacred, were deported to Kangaroo…
