A Charmed Life

the answer is always LOVE



All weekend I have been trying to make sense of the senseless and I have come up with nothing. Zilch. Nada for my woe so here I am stuck in this weltschmerz state of mind.

That human beings are capable of such awful atrocities towards their fellow brothers and sisters is not something I – a believer in all things peace and love – can even begin to comprehend AND yet here we are again AND we will be here again and again until… until what I don’t know. All I know is the world we have come to know, the times we are living cannot be changed by normal allopathic means. The time is upon us for that awakening. That energy shift. That big fat bloody miracle.

‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.’~Martin Luther King, Jr.

How many of us have been fortunate enough to fall in love with Paris, well now the time has come to fall in love again. Whatever you believe in; a god, the universe, an energy vibration, an ing (as I call it) or even if you have no belief system, believe this:  We – as the wonderseekers, global citizens, inhabitants of planet Earth, lovers of life – have a challenge before us, these attacks in Paris, Beirut, Baghdad seek to divide us. They aim to turn us into an us-versus-them society. We cannot allow this to happen nor can we rely only on the leaders of the world or ‘someone else’ to resolve this. The revolution of LOVE starts with you in every breath you take, every thought you think, every word you say, every prayer you pray, every action you make, every time you meditate – it’s on you. If I sound like I am repeating myself from other posts that is because the answer is always LOVE and I will keep going until I feel that seismic change which humanity needs in order to thrive.

So are you with me? If your answer is anything but yes – what is the alternative? Wait for that elusive someone or something else to heal our world and change your FaceBook profile picture every time something senseless happens. Solidarity matters but from where I’m standing it is not enough. I don’t think there is a choice. In the words of Michael Jackson and a legion of others ‘There comes a time when we heed a certain call, when the world must come together as one… We are the world. We are the children. We are the ones to make a brighter day so let’s start giving. There’s a choice we’re making, we’re SAVING OUR OWN LIVES…’ #LetsDoThis

Pour tous mes frères et sœurs à Paris and to all my brothers and sisters in Beirut, Baghdad and in all the world amour et la lumière tant d’amour et de lumière pour nous tous love and light so much love and light for us all xxx (thank you to my father who insisted I continue with French lessons instead of taking up typing or computer studies at school – it has come in very useful in the last few days, merci beaucoup père)

Also in the news:  “No one puts children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land.” Home by #WarsanShire. As we have been told, the diaspora of refugees has had a causal impact in the Paris attacks as, at least one of the people responsible used the refugee route to get into Europe. How many more reasons does there need to be to resolve this crisis! #RefugeeCrisis #TheTimeisNow #GivePrayLove ♥ Adele’s new song meh! Yes she has a phenomenal voice and yes her previous work was fab but that doesn’t mean everything she sings is worthy of number one. I did enjoy seeing Dixon from 90210 in the video though #TooMuchHype ♥ Election victory for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar. About time! I love the countenance of this woman, I feel peaceful when I look at her face, obviously this has nothing to do with her leadership but any person who sacrifices precious time with their dying spouse for the love of their country and its people gets my vote. #ItsFinallyYourTime #WhoRunTheWorld

  2. last time I was in Paris was with you back in summer 2012 – time flies. Need to make time to visit again. Great city, sad state of affairs, good piece well done RK, I like hearing your take, you have become quite a hippy 🙂

  3. Oh lovely girl, I totally agree with you.
    I was in a mess all weekend, why why why!!!
    I just keep having to remind myself that there so many more good people than bad on this planet, people like you who give a damn.
    Love reading your blogs they make me happy. Don’t ever stop xox

    • Hello my friend, hope you are well stranger?
      I believe that its about the choices we make – people aren’t good or bad, its the choices that can be either and we are all capable of ‘bad’ decisions. That’s why I say the answer is always love. If you choose love you cannot go wrong.
      Thanks for the feedback. I will keep going for as long as it feels right but it is hard to find my muse at times.
      We so need a catch up x

  4. Wow, lovely post, and definitely answer is always love. Even-though we seem to forget at times and let anger over-take it still sits deep inside, and it always comes out, that’s when you realize how much time you have lost.
    Love you girl and yes, do wish there were more people out there like you who gives a damn.

  5. Wow, definitely, the answer is always love. Even-though we sometimes let anger over-take, it is still deep inside, and it always comes out, that’s when you realize how much time you have lost.
    Love you dear, and definitely wish there were more people like you who gives a damn.

  6. love how this blog shows very clearly how much you care. Keep it up.
