What does it mean to be free?

What does it mean to be free?

Freedom is such a controversial subject. All over the world people are fighting or demonstrating for freedom. But what does it actually mean?

For the caged and abused animals of this cruel world, it means a first time run in fields of green. An exhilarating jump out of the vast, free oceans. Free from the cruel experimenting or cheap tricks to keep the human apes informed and entertained.

To the kids working from dark to dark in soul retching factories producing products for an ever increasing human race’s greed — Freedom would be waking to a day of doing exactly as they please.

To the slave of commercialism and governments -freedom is to realize that it is not worth it — Money does not buy happiness. We have an ever-increasing economy with ever growing needs and an even faster-growing suicide and addiction rate.

We were not created for this; we were not placed on this earth for the constant race to nowhere day after day. We were created to rise with the sun and go to sleep with the moon. To eat what Mother Earth and your own hands have provided. It was given and will always be given if we only worked with her and stopped destroying her.

The ocean is empty, the earth is dying.

We need a new freedom. A freedom from governance, a freedom from commercialism, a freedom from greed and want, a freedom from being ‘human.’ We need a freedom of soul; we need to be free beings, free to be what our souls want to be.

Our souls want to be FREE.

I choose Happy….

“Every single minute of every single day, they’re there.
They may be hidden behind circumstances, people, or light poles. Challenges, closed doors, or lost keys. Camouflaged, dovetailed, or whispering. Purring, kissing, or hissing. But more often than not they’re lying about in the open, under a clear blue sky, in plain view.

10,000 reasons to be happy. “

An excellent read…

A beautifully written fantasy about a group of friends dreaming of becoming rock stars. The story is filled with humor, adventure and even a bit of romance. Throughout the story line, the author’s passion and beliefs are strongly evident, in the characters and the scenes portrayed, the characters are interesting and believable. All age groups can easily relate to the charming characters. An excellent read, I enjoyed the book/story line immensely and can’t wait to follow Raphael and his loyal friends on their next “magical” adventure. Ronel Smuts

A little bit of dust…

Do you believe in faeries? Not the sweet little Barbie-like perfect winged creatures created by Hollywood. No. Real faeries. Do you believe?
I have this absolute fascination with the fae. I read everything about them, follow blogs about them. Collect them. I have many hanging from the roof in my little cottage. I’m in love with the Froud fae because that is how I would imagine them.
I have met many fae on meditational journeys and danced in faery rings with them in my dreams. But actually, meet one….. Maybe.
A few weeks ago I was meditating as usual under our beautiful lush green Wishing tree. The lower branches are wrapped in colorful ribbons of wishes send to Mother Earth. Lanterns of all colors play among the leaves and the soft whispers of water dancing around the Buddha’s knees filled the air.
During the meditation, I was playing with the fae in a far off forest. Running through the trees. A tree spirit caught my curly hair and captured me for a while. I playfully removed the hold and rushed after the fae, running over the streams. I disappeared in the otherworld for a long while and returned to reality with a blissful sigh.
Much later in the day, someone asked what I had in my hair. On closer inspection, I found a beautiful shining silver leaf braided into my hair. As I pulled to try and get it out it softly dissolved into a soft silver dust. I send it to the wishing tree, in a puff of kisses and gratitude.
Do I believe in Faeries? Of course, I do. Sometimes all you need is a little bit of dust. Do you believe?

What will they find there ??

The legendary, mythical Hy-Brasil, the phantom island of Ireland could possibly make an appearance in the final book of ARACH.  Hy-Brasil  appeared on ancient maps as early as 1325.  On most maps, it was located off the west coast of Ireland.  In Irish myth, it was said to be clouded in mist except for one day every seven years when it became visible but still could not be reached.

What will our gang find there? What will they do there? Find out more at  www.readarach.com  or www.mgschoombee.co.za


Listen !!!

“Really, you have come this far on this journey and you still do not believe that trees can talk. Trees talk, bushes talk, flowers talk, even the subservient grass we are sitting on talks. You do not listen.”
