Are Writing And Sleep Incompatible?

I just finished my new novel’s 1st draft, 300 pages!!  I thought I’d get some rest at last. Revisions aren’t that exciting, are they? Perhaps I’ve lost my mind or was that something just reserved for kids? Here I am up at Four in the Morning, excited about revising! I know how it starts, I know how it ends….. can repainting road signs be that exciting? I think however it’s the inspiration of friends I’ve found at Indie Writers…..

There is an addiction to the creative experience that is inspired by nothing but others. What is it I want to make certain I have done? What is to exciting to wait? I’m inspired by those  in my writing group, who I hope like me can’t wait for enough light to again be up and write!  This is how my sleep is undone…

  • Tease curiosity with Alvin Wander’s amazing technique for creating character
  • Create a culture bound to a knife held by a vulture as Walt Kuhlman does
  • Add some subtle but poetic phrases as inspired by Judy Moskowitz (or Billy Collins)
  • Add some heartfelt prose with the gentleness Evelyn Ross does
  • Every day I remember to read someone new as I learned from Gerrie Beck
  • Shine the hot spot light of stage like presence on my character’s speech- Isaac Asimov (I know he’s been here while I was asleep)
  • Or read something magical as from  John C Mannone?  (as close as the internet)
  • A a page of cruelty and violence in a very special way, inspired by Keith Darrel
  • What price can you put on such a thrill?  Authors who have have Disneyland In their backyard!  Maybe I’ve added too, by just catching fire?

A Sexy Florida Morning

Lying in bed squeezing lids tightly closed, light seeps in under the leaky door
Filling more than the floor it splashes and thrashes washing away the dark sand of night
Spraying like a sprinkler through slices of shades, writing word rows of red marching ants.  Fresh squeezed sweet orange juice dripping, whispering memories of the evening’s passion
Covering the naked curves of sexy tanned night with strips of bright new clothes
Pulling open the shades like and old etch and sketch
Erases the wall and the Dream it did call
Warm days beyond the wall
beckon with no pall

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN FREEDOM’ DREAM? NOT LATELY? LET ME SHARE IT WITH YOU!

spaceshuttleatlantis-launch-01What was it in the distance; hard to see on this overcast day? It looked like a cigar with a pencil strapped to it; but, it was in fact the result of millions of years of mankind’s dreams, America’s unified pride and the results of individual freedom to achieve our dreams! As the sun came up from behind the clouds and lit the landscape the view shifted.

Joe stood near the water’s edge and observed this now gleaming pencil like object, pointing skyward, a half mile away across the intercostal. At that distant point in Canaveral it was T minus 30 seconds and the tension was building in the crowd of thousands. These people, like Joe, stood in the now hot florida sun, several deep from the road, waiting the experience of a lifetime. Hand held transistor radios reported from every direction weather and launch status in a cacophony much like standing in flock of excited seagulls.

Joe watched intently as the distant gantry rolled back and misty plumes of gas flared skyward from the dangling hoses. T Minus 5 seconds and crowd began to cheer! Then Zero hour and the flames erupted like a newborn sun beneath the ship. The very Earth below Joe’s feet began to vibrate but it was hard to tell if it was the thundering giant a half mile away or the crowds screaming, cheering and jumping up and down with excitement. Joe was sure it was both.

The niagara like cascade of water, cooling the launch pad, created clouds of steam so huge as to engulf and rise above, the now snail like ascent, of our dreams creation in its caressing arms. Then as if on cue, the huge rocket accelerated skyward to the awe of Joe and millions lost in their screams of joy and visions of America’s future. ……………. It was then we Knew America Was Great!

It was before the corruption of congress, the executive office and bribes from Industry, sucked the spirit, dreams, hope and financial strength out of Americans.  It was before the creation of the corporate cronyism that now rules America.

Freedom entails risks!  I for one will vote For Change! We cannot afford to go on with the corruption that Hillary is financed by!

An Opportunity For Prosperity Through Indian Eyes!

100 yeas ago, when America’s dreams were that of bunch of diverse foreigners seeking a future,  opportunity stood at every door.  When today’s corporate giants, created a  Corporatocracy they slew the dragons defending freedom and personal opportunity. In so doing they also cut down the tree of dreams and its fruit of success! Look at one fledgling growing nation, India, to see how it is struggling to overcome the same challenges we face! Corporations temporarily prosper on slave labor and beating square pegs into round holes, but all stale ideas grow mold and die like week old bread.   See the opportunity for prosperity through Indian Eyes! (English subtitles for our possible third world nation).

Mind Expansion Without Drugs By Unplugging The TV!

The_matrix_ImageIf you are alive and in search of adventure, could you truly have missed the amazing story of The Matrix?  Did you recognize that it is a story about not watching a story? If so did you choose to follow its path?

For years I used its rain of twisting numbers as my screen saver to remind me of what I chose not to be.  I did not want to be a battery plugged into the sea of humanity that has no consciousness other than that painted by the new feudal kings of media Industry!

I did not however expect such a simple choice to have such an amazing outcome as to rival that of LSD!  What price would you pay of a safe “trip” that takes you to a destination,  your mind perhaps struggles to put into words, but yet springs from your heart with the force of “Old Faithful” at Yellow Stone Park?

Do you have “dreams” that are lurking at the edge of conscious expression but not clothed in words because you lack a writer’s pen or experience to incarnate them? Do your remember when you knew you could conquer the world before Vietnam,  before Iraq and before the Investment Bankers stole your inheritance?  If you do, and you must if you are breathing, then there is a way of finding them and the energy they gift to your arms, legs and spirit by growing in the soil of your fertile mind.  I did not know this when I unplugged the TV, years ago; but, it is the gift of empty space and the laws of thermodynamics!  What is apparently empty, will surely reach homeostasis, with its surroundings and YOU can choose the surroundings!  You can unplug from the matrix!

So here is my method for Mind Expansion without drugs, better than LSD,  better than Grass and better than million dollar movie production, your own excellent private trip.  Unplug your TV, disconnect your Radio,  don’t download that podcast!  Let your mind be empty and in the time you would have willingly plugged into the system of media persuasion,  take a bike ride, walk a leaf Woman's Eye and World Globesstrewn path, put a battery in your old walkman and listen to music without words or song.  As sure as you are alive, your mind will awaken and begin to paint pictures!  Pictures painted with the skill of Picaso, pictures painted that touch your heart because they spring from your heart.  Pictures with a depth of drama and color that no one else but you is privileged to see; your own private screening of years of art work painted by a master at the depth of your soul.

Is it worth the effort to find yourself again in the sea of countless faces that have clouded out the sunshine?  What price would you place on your life, the one they have taken in our Matrix of TV, Radio, Magazines and podcasts? The one that like an alcoholic in denial, you cannot yet recognize but suspect has been stolen from you?

Even more frightening and this is likely your deepest fear,  what if you find in your head a shallow pool of colorless water with none of the beauty of Michael Jacksons poetry?  What if you find you are empty like the apollo photos of the moon? Then fear not because you are not! It is just the withdrawal from the drugs of your Matrix experience.

You can easily catalyze your own sunrise by going deeper and deeper into your heart, which has been buried by the sludge of ashes from the opium of the masses.  Simply meditate each night before sleep, when awakening and if your sleep is disturbed (for God’s sake don’t take a sleeping pill if you can live without it!).  Emptiness cannot exist and is not tolerated by any crevice in our universe so the seas of your lost self will rush in,  the oceans will swell in your mind and you will sail a ship you have long ago forgotten on a journey you have dreamed about in your youth.  How long will it take? Each journey has its unique price but emptiness is not tolerated in our universe and as sure as you breath the seas will rush in!

It is worth it, unplug!

An Altered State Of Mind, With Out Drugs!

In my post, Last Words Before Drowning In A Sea Of Marriage,  I explored how we may lose ourselves in marriage and wonder who we were and what we might have been?  You could of course take a dose of LSD or smoke some homegrown (organic) marijuana and see if you can free yourself of who you have become. It might work but I don’t take drugs.  I have learned better, for now,  and perhaps you agree with this possibly healthier mental diet.  As an alternative to Ship_in-Stormdrugs I would recommend the opinions of a bright female friend,  if you are male,  or perhaps the opposite if you are female.  I got a good dose of some recently from my friend Marcy.

In my sleep, I was thinking about her observation regarding my essay.  I love her opinions because they are unusually deep and thoughtful and like some good hashish  in the 60’s, help me dream in depth and color 🙂
My friend, Marcy,  suggested that the essay was about a person unhappy with the outcome of years of marriage, I can see how it might be read that way; however, it is not about a person who is so unhappy with his marriage. It is about a man in late middle age, who is looking back at the major crossroads in his life and wondering what if?
I am aware that my life has been like an ancient creaking spanish galleon long tossed about in the tempest of  endless seas, with no clear destination, and too many storms under its keel.  What if I, the captain,  had taken the map proffered by the hand of the another princess?   A princess,  who but for a kiss and a promise, would have left her kingdom and its mighty castle in the dark of night, just for my left hand in hers and the brightly glowing oil lamp held in my right?
IF only I could see clearly beyond the drifting fog of 50 years of life!  What were the youthful hurricanes in my heart, its visions in my head, the tempest of forces around me that drove me to explore?  Looking back with the eyes of a master seaman what would the ship and the treasure map now look like? Could I,  like a prophet,  predict its journey?  As you wake from a deep sleep the feeling and impact of dream images begin to fade as the colors of the world dim with the falling blanket of night. So with years does do the thoughts and emotions of a young man’s body.  Recapturing the thoughts and feelings of the moment in time when you were twenty is impossible when you are 50,  because like a moving river whose waters can only be stepped in once your mind and heart move on in ways we cannot describe.  You die each night and are reborn each day and with each cycle of life and death you are reborn a different person, more different with each day. Can you recall another man’s dreams? I think not.
I am not unhappy with my marriage; I married a beautiful princess whose radiance grows from day to day and shines with such brightness that everything else becomes less important.   Perfection I do not expect but I like two performing musicians,  we keep the harmony moving forward.  I am unhappy with one life!  I am in need of a million more to explore! What would I find while in search of a dreamed of mighty sunshine that lifts the fogs of eternal time!  I  am beginning to expect I have had and will know my desire and may live and die to regret and enjoy it many times more.

Alternative Realities That Share A Consensus!

When I was about 15 years old and living in Miami Fla, I was in the center of the Hippy Era.  We wanted you to “blow your mind”  and expand your thinking.  I chose to do this without drugs and here is a highly entertaining opportunity to do so legally :-), by watching Nassim Haramein!   Here is why I hope you do so:

When I was very little, about 5 years of age, I did not have imaginary “friends” as some did, but I did have “visitors”  that wanted to know about my world.  When they looked at my world, I got a vague glimpse of their world.  It is long ago and I have forgotten most of what I sensed.  Sometimes it was so strange as to be nonsensical or it seemed I did not have the sensory apparatus and experience to comprehend it.  As you get older, people tell you that if you have imaginary friends you are “crazy” or donna the butlers wifethey tell you it is time to grow up and stop living in imagination.  Like most of us I chose to conform and did so.  However,  every now and then the dimensions of space/time that I was denying,  to become more  acceptable to my peers,  decided to come and interrupt my “sanity.”  Oddly enough in many cases it provided information that I need.  Information that then  made my life much better and information that was simply not otherwise available. Sometimes it did nothing and was just a vague brief experience of another consciousness.

Many years, degrees, honors and human interactions later,  despite my total disbelief in many of  the fundamental principles of physics, theology and philosophy, I have managed to be a functional part of what I view as a society based on misinformation. Misinformation?  When you teach we are all one and God is withing and then kill our neighbor for praying differently, you have to admit there is something wrong!  Anyway,  to my delight, I have finally found a physicist who, like me, believes the fundamental structure of physics and the theological and philosophical underpinnings of our thinking is based on erroneous assumptions.  I have been delighted!  I have found someone who sees the world as I do and even better is using mathematics and physics to prove it.  Nassim Haramein is a one many revolution traveling around the world speaking and sharing his world changing viewpoint of reality with a goal of building a consensus amongst people whose minds are not to bogged down in education dove_peace-5555pxto be open to changes in fundamental thinking!   What is the value?  Well consensus driven by enough people can bring about change through the unity of all of us, that Nassim Haramein is proving on a daily basis.  When we all understand that we are really one as the greatest minds in history taught, then there will be no value or meaning in killing your neighbor because he prays differently. There will be no sense to terrorism by martyrdom and vests of bombs.  We will know that a rocket exploding on your home does not open the Gates Of Heaven for 10 martyrs to ascend.  We will have a chance for real peace on Earth and transcendence for humanity.

I encourage you to watch this Excellent series of 6 lectures by Nassim Haramein in Barcelona, Spain and help build the consensus for world peace,  while entertaining yourself with the simple and humerus communications of a man who can make the complex simple.  A man who as Walt Disney said, “would rather hope to entertain you with the hopes of educating rather then educate you with the hopes of entertaining.

Each video is about an hour long. I recommend you watch it while on a treadmill, exercise bike etc. Do an hour at a time. You will expand both your mind and your health.  If you are a man, we always communicate best while moving, at least according to Dr John Gray in “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.

There Is No Right Or Wrong, Just The Greed Of “Leadership”!

Seen in the picture below, is terrorism’s new face. It is described by one of my favorite reporters,  Vicky Nanjappa, in his article Lashkar, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists and deserves careful scrutiny. Vicky describes the new face of a potential World Of United Terrorism, partially thanks to Obama’s support of terrorism by his poorly timed withdrawal  creating chaos.  And this chaos resulting in the destruction of all America’s solider’s have fought to achieve over 13 years of fighting,  an opportunity for freedom in the Middle East.  George Bush surely read Natan Sharanky’s book The Case For Democracy: The Power Of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny And Terror; Obama either doesn’t read much or has another agenda.

WHO IS RIGHT?  Who is Right and who is Wrong in this world wide battle between Freedom and the Caliphate of Islam?  In my opinion, we all know the answer, if we look inward.  It is those who look outward, with visions of power and greed that know only one word, War!  Most great leaders, who had faith in God, said look within to find God and his truth.  If you do so, you will recognize that we are all human and as such imperfect.  You will recognize that the word of any “prophet”  could only be the best impression an imperfect person could share.  You will recognized that you don’t want to kill your neighbor; you want to live in peace. You will recognize that there is enough bounty to enrich the lives of every person on Earth and care for the planet, if the goal was to do so. You will recognize that all the systems of religion and government are there for the powerful, cruel, and greedy whose “genius” is to lead others to slaughter their neighbors so the leaders might achieve their visions.  The ONLY truth is simple, “love thy neighbor.”   If instead of accumulating money, we were to accumulate “gold stars” for each person we helped in our life’s journey as a businessman, doctor, lawyer, politician or ditch digger, it would be a better world!  What do we really need?  Do we need to own an Island and a Jet?   Is it not better to have happiness and reap the joy of the seeds we have sowed by creating the only value that has meaning, the enriched lives of others and the planet?

Why do Americans,  in a recent survey,  prefer Cockroaches to Congressmen in their homes?   It is because in our hearts we know the truth about leadership, all of it!

There is a simple answer to all our problems but we have killed our neighbors in its denial for thousands of years.  That answer is that the truth is within a heart that loves his neighbor as his self.   Words spoken by many religious leaders but denied in their “practice of religion itself!”

So,  who is right and who is wrong?   Should we have a Caliphate or Freedom? The answer is simple, there is No Answer from outside only from within.  If you follow ANY teaching,  Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Communist, Republican,  Democratic, Kingdom ….. You are looking outside for a leader who will draw boundaries in the sand and lead you to war.

If humanity and the Earth are to survive,  it is time to recognize that if God is all powerful he will speak to our hearts when we turn inward without the teachings and messages of “leaders”  who are always, in my opinion, false prophets.  There is one truth only, Love Thy Neighbor As Thy Self,  after all we are all children of God and by so doing, prove our love for God.

The world “Leadership”, as we know it  historically,  needs to be redefined. You see, if there are no boundaries we call MINE and not YOURS,  then there is no place to lead to and no need for leaders.   Leaders don’t lead us to success they lead us to protect our imagined wealth and another’s hoped for poverty. They do not lead us to greatness, they lead us to war, death and division.

When we learn to live united as God’s People, without leaders and shun them as much as we have shunned “false prophets” then we will possibly find truth. Then the  Caliphate, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists  will be as meaningless as any other flag rallying for the death of its neighbor.  We need to erase all these imagined boundaries, recognize humanity and Earth, turn inward with love and share the resultant joy and prosperity.  It is a simple vision but a difficult task because leaders get in the way.

10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh, India

2014-07-19 18_30_06-10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh -CHARAMA (Chhattisgarh): Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture plans to seek help from Nasa and Isro for research on 10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs in Charama region in Kanker district in tribal Bastar region.

According to archaeologist JR Bhagat, these paintings have depicted aliens like those shown in Hollywood and Bollywood flicks. Located about 130km from Raipur, the caves come under village Chandeli and Gotitola.

“The paintings are done in natural colours that have hardly faded despite the years. The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear features. Specially, the nose and mouth are missing. In few pictures, they are even shown wearing space suits. We can’t refute possibility of imagination by prehistoric men but humans usually fancy such things,” the archaeologist said.  Read more here……….

2014-07-19 18_33_16-10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh -One of my favorite books, ‘Supernatural Meetings With The Ancient Teachers Of Mankind” by Graham Hancock, gives an in depth research and analysis of this kind of finding with some really amazing conclusions.  I share his insights in my story, “Not Kids Games,  The Adventures Of Janr SSor.’

I highly recommend Grahams book.  It is exciting to see new findings
