Sheila Smith 132 Grenfell Tower

Posted in Uncategorized on June 18, 2017 by thecockneybard

I dedicate this song to my friend Sheila Smith lost in the Grenfell Tower. My shock has been replaced by anger. I couldn’t imagine in those times we drank coffee in Holland Park and wiled away the hours talking about Politics, Shakespeare, The Templars you would one day be in the news, not for something wonderful you did in your life, but something so horrific to end it. You were a special part of my journey and will always be remembered for that! A very special person indeed x

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and ferries wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way
But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away
I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all
Tears and fears and feeling proud,
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way
But now old friends they’re acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living every day.
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
Songwriters: Joni Mitchell

It makes me cry as I wonder why? It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all.

On the Sixth Sense

On the Sixth Sense

Millions & millions of people worldwide are totally unaware of it or even of its existence. I will be perfectly honest and tell you it can be both a curse and a blessing. On discovering this (at times magnificent beast) they may well wish they hadn’t, but for me it has uncovered another quite beautiful world. Its total understanding will be incomprehensible, and only on much experience will one at least be given some insight into its mystery. If anyone is certain of its existence it is I.

No time when I do sleep – The Cockney Bard

Posted in Uncategorized on March 21, 2017 by thecockneybard

Methinks time the dial of day speak words of irrelevance, words of disdain. Inappropriate words, ill words on this day, a day of despair. My conscience play a sombre tune of which I sigh this day, I crie a tear that fall. Sadly longing, despised each word that describes time. Methinks day must turn to night for sigh to turn to sleep, to dream forgetting time and day. No more disdain, my pleasure gained for sleep becomes my friend. Words of ill no longer heard as I do gentle sleep. Silent night, my conscience rest and freed my plight. My cursed mind no more to rage. No time when I do sleep.

Ricky Gervais – Religion- A perspective

Posted in Uncategorized on March 21, 2017 by thecockneybard

I am not religious – Are you an atheist? No, I believe in God – But you said you are not religious? I am not. My God is nature. It is in all and in everything and God is as good a name as any to describe a truly sublime intelligence. Something we cannot possibly understand, but can only be in awe of! – The Cockney Bard.

section 06.22 – 06.30 Did make me laugh!

Helping make understanding simple!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 18, 2017 by thecockneybard

Having studied the mind (formerly known as the soul) for over twenty odd years here is the Cockney Bard’s ‘Ten point simple understanding guide’

1) we all have the capability to access the sixth sense, psychic ability, mediumship call it what you like. It is innate within ALL human beings as is the capacity to heal with hands (reiki, spiritual healing, natural healing, energy healing call that what you like too).

2) I have never had any teaching, no master, no guru, never been on any courses, no initiation. This proves it is a perfectly natural ability.

3) it takes years to develop a great understanding of it. To sort the wheat from the chaff and to near master the understanding. You can never fully master it.

4) Lack of understanding and it can be very detrimental. Often mixed up with mental health concerns the reality is somewhere inbetween.

5) You need to realise that as well as good there is bad.

6) You need not be religious, a spiritualist, belong to any group, have any faith, any belief, worship any symbol, any saint, God or guru.

7) You should not believe all you are told when accessing this extraneous source. Being a well balanced individual is essential. People have said they have communicated with all kinds of people from Jesus to Merlin so caution advised.

8) You can see the future, you can get information about others you have not previously known, you can if you are very fortunate get wonderful philosophy and poetry as have I. You can be fed with intelligence (see sonnet 86 of Shakespeare) and re-educated also as was I.

9) You need to be disciplined with the information and its content. You need to use common sense when dealing with others on the subject.

10) And the most important is don’t live your life by it.

It is often ridiculed by science, sceptics, those with little to no understanding of it like Stephen Fry, Derren Brown, Richard Dawkins et al, those who fear the truth or those who have their own agenda. Of course there are frauds and fakes out there. But what you can say with great certainty is it is very real and you ALL have the ability to access it scientists and sceptics included.

Remember the only truth is a proven fact.
