“Concerto #1” By Philosofree Recently, at De Sotos café, where I sing and play guitar on Thursday evenings, it was a special night because my darling Manu joined me to sing “California Dreaming” for the first time! During the night a message came to me, and I would like you to [...]

The Law as a Vehicle for Supression.

By |2017-12-20T14:57:40+00:00October 22nd, 2013|History|

I was brought up to believe that the law was primarily a societal practice or rule for the good of the society. Today I read the book,  “The African Americans” by Henry Louis Gates Jr. and I have revised my understanding of the law to; “Law is a rule or authority imposed by those with [...]

Wasting Time

Have you ever spent a day lying on your back in the sunshine, becoming part of the quiet, hearing the sounds of insects, feeling the prickle of grass on your skin? (If not, then, try and select a day from your memory banks that is very similar in terms of resting, not working, and not [...]

The Good Judge meant….

“Judge not and you will not be judged” Luke 6:37 I think that condemnation and judgement is always a roadblock to self growth. You see, I have a simplistic notion of love, and the supreme spirit is the instantiation of love. That is, love doesn’t die, and it doesn’t lie. Also what applies to one, [...]

Quiet Please.

By |2017-12-20T14:57:41+00:00January 26th, 2013|Being Yourself, Love, Peace, Relationships, Uncategorized|

Happiness without Guilt

It seems to me that bliss is a state of peace where self-worth and love are like a protective force-shield around your soul, preventing the mistakes of the past from getting in and corrupting the moment. Take yourself into memory lane and remember a time when you were in bliss - recall it and how [...]

Roaming together in Rome

One of the great things about hostels or similar accomodation is that you get to meet lots of different people. That could not have been better illustrated than last night at the Roma Scout Center, near Bologna subway station.
