Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, its red alert
There’s something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the sky
The ninety nine red balloons go by.
Ninety nine decisions treat
Ninety nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we’ve waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety nine red balloons go by.
The thought of nuclear war scares the crap out of me but I think there is a deeper fear, than just the physical fear. The End of the World as we know it.
The Fear of Annihilation and our individual self identity.
From Wiki :
‘Ego death is a “complete loss of subjective self-identity”. The term is used in various intertwined contexts, with related meanings. In Jungian psychology the synonymous term psychic death is used, which refers to a fundamental transformation of the psyche. In the death and rebirth mythology, ego death is a phase of self-surrender and transition, as described by Joseph Campbell in his research on the mythology of the Hero’s Journey. It is a recurrent theme in world mythology and is also used as a metaphor in some strands of contemporary western thinking.’
Now is the Time.
‘It’s 8:15 and that’s the time that it’s always been’.
Don’t Look Now.
Facing your and mine and our deepest fears is part of the journey. Over the last few months, I have seen Trump as the War Doctor. The War Doctor was one of Dr Who’s regenerations which he had buried deep in his psyche and had tried to forget. And was instrumental in the Time War.
From Wiki :
‘The Time War, more specifically called the Last Great Time War, is a conflict within the fictional universe of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who. The conflict pitted the Time Lords against the Daleks and culminated in the apparent mutual destruction of both races, caused by the Doctor.’
The War on Time and the Race against Time.
Because of the guilt caused by the death and destruction, he had been involved with, the War Doctor was repressed and suppressed in the memory of the Doctor. I believe Trump maybe a manifestation of a collective guilt, coming to the surface. In effect, looking back in Time.
The Sands of Time.
In the last few days, War has turned up for me. Not in a personal way, I must add.
On Friday, I came across a piece of Trench Art. It is an old shell which has bullets soldered to the bottom of it, and has Ypres engraved on it, which is connected with the two battles in Belgium in WW1.
And Ypres mirrors the gas attack in Syria, as Ypres was the first mass chemical attack.
From Wiki :
‘During World War I, the Second Battle of Ypres was fought from 22 April – 25 May 1915 for control of the strategic Flemish town of Ypres in western Belgium after the First Battle of Ypres the previous autumn. It was the first mass use by Germany of poison gas on the Western Front.’
The Artifact – Donnie Darko :
‘When a Tangent Universe occurs, those living nearest to the vortex will find themselves at the epicenter of a new world. An Artifact provides the first sign that a Tangent Universe has occured.
If an Artifact occurs, the Living Receiver will retrieve it with great interest and curiosity. Artifacts are formed from Metal, such as an Arrowhead from an ancient Mayan Civilization, or a Meta Sword from Medival Europe. Divine Intervention is deemed the only logical conclusion for the appearance of the Artifact’.
And on Saturday, I took a trip to Reigate Fort which is close to Jct 8 on the M25, if you are interested.
First of all, I had a long walk up Reigate Hill. It was hard going up but good going down.
And crossed the bridge over the M25 which leads to Reigate Fort.
And then passed East Fort Cottage.
Reigate Fort is not a fort in the usual sense of the term but a set of buildings sitting on the top of Reigate Hill, Surrey, England. It was built as a defence against the French in 1898. The idea being the enemy below wouldn’t see the enemy above. The buildings were built very low down into the ground.
General Montgomery of El Alamein fame in WW2, as part of the SE command was based in tunnels a few hundred yards away, so he probably visited Reigate Fort. Click Reigate Fort.

In the last month or so, I have taken a journey back in Time in my locality. This makes sense if the Universe is within, as the external reality will reflect the River of Time.
And one big point jumps out at me. The War is in the Mind, and in my mind as much as anyone, but I believe what my travels are saying is that it is the past. The War is Over but continues ‘out there’ as we haven’t released the past, old pain and guilt.
So who do we fight ? I believe we think our foe is God and as we are One with God, our Self. And we are programmed to fight and wage war. And we always find something to fight as it has a habit of just ‘turning up’. In short, our external reality reflects our wishes at the deepest level.
And it is not God, who keeps his or her, or him and her, distance. Because God is all there is but we can imagine we are separate from God and each other.
But the Ocean doesn’t understand our language and just keeps waving.
Oshun – the Goddess of the Sweet Waters.
And Old Man River just keeps rolling along.
The Blue Planet.
Why do we keep our distance ?
You are the Love of Loves’.
We are always Safe. And Love is All There Is. With knobs on.
