Picture: Is prayer a waste of time?


Alcuin
: What do you think about praying, Flutterby? Is prayer a waste of time?
Flutterby: No, it's not. For a lot of people on your planet, perhaps for most, prayer can be a very useful spiritual exercise.
Alcuin: What is prayer?
Flutterby: Prayer is breathing.
Alcuin: Breathing?
Flutterby: Yes. Prayer is breathing.
Alcuin: What sort of breathing?
Flutterby: Slower than usual, deeper than usual, conscious breathing.
Alcuin: What? Really stretch the ribcage? Hold the breath for as long as possible?
Flutterby: No. Not that. No useful spiritual exercise involves pain, strain, endurance or unpleasantness. Just breathe a little slower than usual and a little deeper than usual. And maybe pause the breathing process for four or five seconds between each inhalation and exhalation. And while you do that, gently pay attention to the breathing process and enjoy it.
Alcuin: Enjoy it? Enjoy prayer?
Flutterby: Yes.
Picture: Praying together. English girl and African boy.


Alcuin: Prayer is boring.
Flutterby: If prayer is boring, it is not prayer at all.
Alcuin: Isn't it?
Flutterby: No. Breathing is not boring. Conscious breathing is deeply refreshing.
Alcuin: Eyes shut or eyes open?
Flutterby: You decide. Do what feels best for you. Maybe close your eyes and, while you're breathing, focus your attention on the ajna centre between the eyebrows.
Picture: Third eye mandala. Ajna centre. The sixth primary chakram.


Alcuin: The third eye?
Flutterby: Yes. The interdimensional eye.
Alcuin: Right. What about posture?
Flutterby: How do you mean?
Alcuin: Kneeling? Standing up? Sitting down? What is the best posture for breathing?
Flutterby: You decide. Try out a few different postures. See what works for you. See which position helps you to breathe with the greatest comfort and freedom. Sitting up straight with an absolutely vertical spine, or lying down with an absolutely horizontal spine helps a lot of people.
Alcuin: Why?
Flutterby: Because for a lot of people the human spiritual anatomy seems to function best that way.
Alcuin: The chakras and things?
Flutterby: Yes. The interdimensional portals and energy centres in the human spiritual anatomy seem to work well in those orientations.
Alcuin: Is anything which makes you breathe especially slowly or especially deeply a form of prayer?
Flutterby: You could say that. One of the reasons why lots of sex is good for you is that it makes you breathe more and it makes you breathe deeply and it makes you breathe better. And the same thing goes for exercise and laughing and singing.
Alcuin: What should we think about when we are prayer-breathing?
Flutterby: Think about as little as possible, I would say. Just enter the process peacefully and become the breathing itself.
Alcuin: Isn't that a bit passive?

Flutterby: You could say that, yes. But prayer is not what we do to God. Prayer is what God does to us.
Picture: Ask and you will receive. St Germain. I AM the Ascension in the Light.

You always get that which you ask for if you ask for it with your Soul instead of your senses.

If you ask in words alone, you will not receive what you ask for because you have not asked God for it - you have asked your senses for it.

When, however, you have actually written your desire into your heartbeat, as some have automatically done all their lives, from moment to moment, you unfailingly acquire the knowledge you ask for.

It comes to you in a timeless flash, in the rhythmic language of Light which God uses to talk to His children.

Aquarian elf girl

The elf angel of Ardingly
In West Sussex,
Is sixteen years old,
Smells of flowers
And looks like liquid sex
In jeans.

Her voice sounds like
A fairy bell
Heard behind waterfalls.

She doesn't walk;
She flows
Sinuously
Like a reed
In the breeze,
Too slim for friction.

Her coursework
Is averagely badly written,
And she wears her school tie
Unacceptably loose.

She doesn't use a mobile phone,
Or an iPod,
Doesn't watch television,
Won't eat meat
Or anything cooked
In a microwave oven,
And she sleeps
Ten hours a day,
Next to a basket of crystals,
Saying that that is her main work:
She has dreams to look after.

But notice her eyes.
What colour are they today?

Look at her eyes
When she is sitting
Next to her mother.
Her eyes are older
Than her mother's,
But they dance more.

Her lifestream is old,
Yet young,
Experienced,
Yet forever fresh.

A few boys have kissed her,
And many girls.

And they all say the same thing:
Her lips flutter
Like eyelashes,
Her tongue darts
Like a lizard,
And she tastes of Jellybabies
With a hint of lemon
And something else.

It is the something else
Which people remember,
And it is the something else
Which people look forward to.

Sympathetic help for unacceptably fat women


This blog has long supported the plight of obese persons of the female gender living in Germany and America.

Some of these women are the victims of passive fatness. On the bus to work they watch other women scoffing chocolate bars and cream cakes, they inhale too deeply, and before they know where they are they find themselves wolfing down unwanted chocolate bars and cream cakes themselves.

But other women are gratuitous, wanton, self-inflicted fatties. They have adopted a militant, fattist, anti-man lifestyle. They luxuriate in the epithet "fat slag". They meet at secret, single-sex cholesterol parties solely with the intention of achieving an adipose high.

They patronise dress shops which use curtain material and stage hangings for ball gowns. They indulge in deep Rabelaisian laughter which makes them wobble all over.

They walk around with pink wheelbarrows supporting their bellies. They emit a pungent odour of whale grease and burnt tires.

Persons of this second kind cannot be tolerated by a civilised and caring society. We urge the United Nations and the World Health Organisation to take preventive action.

We do not advocate the mass culling of female fatties as some are doing, but it is important that a fair and transparent international flab tax be levied on those of female gender whose expanded dimensions have become an eyesore to people of sensitivity and discrimination.

This blog has never ducked the issue of female size. We have always addressed the matter in a focussed and scientific manner. Some examples of our research are linked below.
