About Me


"looking for ..."


a bit unpredictable?
a good person to talk to?
cyclically funny?


something I found cool:


a soliloquy by sir Lawrence of Olivier from the musical "Time"

Stand before me on the sign of infinity, all of you who are of the earth.
With the granting of the law of profanation, comes the application of change.
I will give you this key. And with this knowledge, please realise,
comes the responsibility of sharing it.
I will show you the way, it is very simple.
Throughout the universe there is order, in the movement of the
planets, in nature and in the functioning of the human mind.
A mind that is in it's natural state of order, is in harmony with
the universe. Such a mind is timeless.
Your life is an expression of your mind. You are the creator of your
own universe, for as a human being, you are free to will
whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts
and words.
Now, there is a great power in here. It can be a blessing or a
curse, it is entirely up to you. For the quality of your life, is brought
about by the quality of your thinking. Think about that.
Thoughts produce actions. Look at what you are thinking. See the
pettiness, and the envy, and the greed, and the fear, and all other
attitudes that cause you pain and discomfort.
Realise that the one thing you have absolute control over is your
See the effect it has on those around you. For each life is
linked to all life, and your words carry with them chain reactions,
like a stone that is thrown into a pond.
If your thinking is in order, your words will flow directly from the
hart, creating ripples of love. If you truly want to change your
world, you must change your thinking.
Reason is your greatest tool, as it creates an atmosphere of
understanding, which leads to caring, which is love.
Choose your words with care, and go forth, with love!
