The Call to Unity

I was born a few short years after the end of World War 2, into a firmly established wartime consciousness that permeated my early childhood. I spent some of those years in the adventure playgrounds created by the Luftwaffe – the bomb-sites of North London. Since those days there have been several nuclear scares, along with military action in other parts of the world, but I’ve lived in the privileged war-free zone of North-Western Europe. The wartime consciousness I remember from my childhood has faded into a history that fewer and fewer people are alive to recall … but it feels like it’s back now.

Riding the Wave of Awakening

It may be time to reconsider your responses to the world you find yourself in. If you’re looking around and don’t care for the options life seems to be offering you; if you’re feeling that nothing fits, so you have to squeeze yourself down into a shape that the rest of the world can accept; if you’ve ever thought there must be something wrong with you to make you unable to just get on with it … it’s possible that you’re here to be on the leading edge of the awakening in consciousness.
