Never Trust a Lawyer

A cautionary tale from the case files

How does an attorney sleep? Well, first he lies on one side, then he lies on the other and now from humour to fact: Dear Sir or Mdm, Many years ago I was happy with your service and more recently when I rang asking if you held any documentation in regards to my estate and for information in regard to hiring your service, the lady who identified herself immediately took control of the conversation and began asking questions in relation to making the document.

I thought at the time it was unnecessary and I had some difficulty getting a word in edgewise to actually ask what I really wanted to know which was

Amen

The word AMEN is one of civilisation’s grand deceptions

Amen is commonly used as a declaration of affirmation or agreement, a concluding word and a response to prayer as in the Hebrew אָמֵן, the Greek ἀμήν, Arabic آمِينَ, Amharic አሜን and in Christian English.

In modern use, amen is literally taken to mean; “The truth (subjective) has been spoken”. It can also be used to express strong agreement, as in, for instance, “certainly”, “to be sure” or “amen to that”. Other English translations of the word amen include “verily”, “truly”, and “so be it.”

Phonetically the A infers collusion and agreement to men as superior. The more drawn out use of AaaMenn (reflects a natural instinct for unity) ending hymns

Conversion Kills

A time to outlaw this practise

Since time immemorial perhaps since people were able to convey ideas to each other through the use of words or gestures, there has been a desire to convince others that one’s original idea is right and should be followed. It may have been as simple as we will find better hunting by going this way.

Over time some ideas proved worthy and some individuals became more authoritative because their ideas were proven. Then people listened and took note, those with the best ideas became leaders which was all very well in matters to do with basic survival. But in the realm of more intangible knowledge like defining God, there can be no collective

Redefining Law

Ideas to save our world

Some of us take time out to reflect on who we are but most are so firmly bound to the wheel of samsara, the illusion of life by their karma that they do not take time or even have time to reflect. This was probably also the case in the most ancient of times when all effort went into survival with momentary time out for recreation and pleasure.

The earliest known laws are encoded within the Rig Veda then further expanded and refined by Manu, the first known lawgiver who is thought to have lived somewhere between 5000 and 3000 BC. “The Law Code of Manu, has more than 2500 laws, although about 1000

A New Paradigm in Law

An ancient rational to be revived

From part one

In part one I have given an overview of how the law has been corrupted to serve the rich and powerful at the expense of not only the people but of continued human existence and life on earth therefore a new paradigm in law is way overdue. I don’t expect these ideas will be a more successful than attempts to save the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef yet these ideas must be expressed and perhaps at some point before we go extinct some of the rich and powerful may find their social consciences awakening to the reality that is looking them in the face.

The ultimate prize in

Ancient India

A legacy the world is awakening to

There is an old saying that the truth will set you free yet in today’s modern corporate controlled world, truth has become a commodity determined by someone else for political and economic gain.

While some people invest a great deal of effort into determining the truth of what someone in the modern world may have or may not have said or done, the truth of our past is more important because it shapes who we are today.

It is abundantly clear that we reap as we sow or to express it more crudely, he who lives by the sword generally dies by the sword. The ancient wisdom originating in India advises that to

Caste and Colonialism

Dividing, conquering and creating wealth based class divides

The Europeans evolved to be materialists, bodies and minds with little concept of a soul. There societal values were and still are all about acquisition at any cost. They enshrined divisions between rich and poor in law and there were no laws against plundering, stealing killing and even extermination of those of a different class or culture.

We can see this continuing today and this power structure has its own evolution. It was the British East India company that was most influential across East Asia and the Pacific while the Spanish dominated the Central and South Americas. The corporate bosses made social and military contracts with tribal leaders and often set

Going Braless

Moving beyond the bigotry and social injustice

It is rather sad that we live in such a twisted world with different rules for everyone based on their social class. Hollywood and the fashion industry sets a precedent for women to be as daring and minimally clad as possible while the working classes are required to be strapped up and their bodies a tool of industry, not for public display, because that is the role of the glamour model and movie star.

Perhaps this stems from the time when the Romanised version of Christianity became vogue and a tool to help maintain the capitalist empire with privileges for the rich and mundane work for the poor. In terms of wearing

Naked Thuth

A moral insight into our suffering

Right from birth we are encouraged to tell the truth even though sometimes we have no idea what it looks like because we are living in a world where the truth is suppressed and the education system along with our politicians and corporate masters feed us so many lies that some don’t believe the truth ever existed.

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day.

The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvellous day today”!

The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the

The Sabarimala Temple Issue

Allowing women to enter Lord Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala, Kerala

Following much public discussion stirred up by special interest lobby groups and politicians keen to cash in on the publicity, and September 2018 the Indian High Court ruled that women of all ages are able to enter Lord Ayyappa temple in South India. These people have little idea that traditional temple spaces are not places of worship in any Christian or Islamic sense, they are places to re-energise and in this sense, the Lord Ayyappa temple was constructed to enhance the masculine identity of men and enable them to function harmoniously in a civilised manner.

The High Court kowtowing to feminists and lobby groups setting aside what scant knowledge of
