Children

B537Final2I have given a number of talks over the last month or so, and am grateful for the platform granted by this book.  Last night I had the privilege of speaking to a group of children aged around eleven and twelve years . . . and it was that and more . . . I am left with a picture of open hearts and eyes that shine for the ring of truth. They are of that age where they stand so comfortably positioned between the physical and spiritual realms . . . one foot in each realm . . . like the First People.   In this manner of being, one may correctly perceive the people of the early races as human beings at an adolescent stage of development on the long time-line between then and now . . . humans as yet unspoiled.  Whether being told of some physical endeavor or equally of some deep esoteric truth, they are so able to hear and understand exactly what is being said . . . they immediately grasp without prejudice what is spoken.  Their openness and understanding is not yet pre-determined by what they have learned in this life, but more by an inherent disposition of Soul, standing between innocence and wisdom . . . like a Grail cup waiting to be filled.  And we, as the adult humans on this long journey, must take great care with how we fill this cup.

Talking with people

I was invited by Prof Boonzaier to give a seminar at the University of Pretoria last week, and embraced the opportunity with an appropriate measure of doubt . . .

Many years ago I had shied away from the academic world, mainly because of it’s mandated refusal to include study of the aspect of Spirit in the human sciences.  Evolution however, both physical and spiritual, is slow but certain . . . life continues, people change as they follow the questions that arise in their Being, and sooner or later, they come to live those changes into the world . . . for all of us, it is the activity of our ‘doubt striving for certainty’ that fuels much of our human endeavour on this earth.

So anyway, I did a one and a half hour talk to a receptive group of people, some accomplished academics amongst them.  The response was extremely gratifying, and I am thankful for the affirmation of my thinking and of my work . . . I was then asked by the head of the Anthropological faculty, a delightful human evolved out of scottish geography called Fraser McNeill, to immediately give a second lecture to the entire anthropological student body.  We drank a coffee, and sallied forth to face three hundred young minds questing for wisdom in a world hardened by re-synthesized information.

I gave another hour to the insistence that future anthropology includes full consideration for the spiritual component of the living human . . . the response was magnificent.  Of course in the audience there were some that still slept, and others that still dreamed, but the wide-awake amongst them are asking the right questions.

It is my hope that my book finds it’s way into those corridors, and that I can contribute to future thinking with regard to the human journey in this world.

The very fact of Spirit, is the entire reason that we gather in various groups around our earth in search of a wisdom that will serve as guide for humanity in these challenged times . . . and few are exempt from this need.  My question to any thinking human remains . . . Tsamkwa /tge? . . . are your eyes nicely open?
