Star Gate


(at the Rumi Festival 2013, Beshara)

One becomes Two,
The Throne of reunion
opens a portal
A star-gate serving mankind
Reproducing Creation
as Three dimensional,
ordinary Love
a Fourness of yin and yang;
Offspring onspringing
joy into Heart, my darling Sa’ida,
life is returning ….

Current (Lost in Love)


A battery of forces at Life’s disposal
The current situation arrives
Flowing between + and –

Withheld attraction in the casing
The flux of ardent chemistry
The balance of yin yang

The pendulum swings eternally
From One point of entry
A weight, wait, returning

The flex of this ancient system
The singular transmission
Love, light, dark, Light.

Come unstuck, become unstuck
Let yourself Be found out
before you’re lost in?

The world at my feet


There is premeditation everywhere, it is the planning function of thought that rehearses a hearse’s journey until the possibility of acting without failure appears, until the thought predominates, then dominates that “there is the possibility of getting away with it”, without dying on the stage that is the material world.

Premeditation is to meditation
What prediction is to diction
What presence is to Essence.

There is practice – of course, the inference that leads to a conference, a reference that melts the hard deference, the circumference of a concentration, a single joint centration, practical like any joint, flexible as a knee – that makes perfect.

How to move from premeditation to meditation? By means of a mediation, through engaging in mediation until your own “t” appears.

Getting stuck in premeditation blocks the joy of being.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy”.

A worder’s invitation ….

In the beginning is the Word …. In the end is the Word …. now is the Word ….

A worder knows how to work with letters,
Letters let matter happen;
matters expect words to happen.
A worder husbands words for Love,
They are his sheep.
The worder knows the double you order,
The transparency,
Knows the ebb and flow of light ….
When there is no worder working,
Words can empty, break and fail.

I am a worder …. I am in Hull ….
Come to Hull ….
A conversation in my taxi,
Simply pay as you go,
An hour or a day, whatever you say
Move your mountain,
Come to Hull
One, two or three at a time ….
While there is still time ….
Come ….

Or, for more formal treatment
A counsellor can be found
Online, or on Hull’s own ground,
DRT – Diction Resolution Therapy

What is the post-code of Hull?
HU ….
What is my post-code?
HU11 ….


(poem 161 by Rumi translated by AJ Arberry ISBN 0-226-73151-0)



Andre Amador

On the sand a beachhead
Of sanity,
a world despairing,
via One
conscious contact,
The spiritual principles
Of life are affirmed,
A message carried.

“There is One who has all power …” (12 Steps)

Conscious contact.

Open the lead ….
…. Precious
…. predicates consciousness
the process of becoming,
The delicious contrasting the atrocious,
And, from the one hundred and ten words –
Witnessing similarly, always and only
…. what you yourself, in conscience,
Have held as being consciously precious.


Spiritual Manners

Rumi is the most popular poet in the USA, yet the story behind the man is one of grief and probable murder as a precursor to the love poetry that is dedicated to Shamsi Tabrisi and to God.

The prophets of the Abrahamic tradition led lives that challenged the rulers of their day, challenges that often led to the messengers’ deaths.

After some thirteen years of being attacked for carrying a monotheistic message to his degenerating culture, Muhammad and his folk eventually defended that message with their lives at stake, though after the physical battles, Muhammad did say that future battles should be fought internally by Muslims.

Quakers were given the name as they shook with righteous indignation at the injustices of their day.

Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi was murdered at the end of his life by his detractors.

The Bhagavad Gita is a story of war, though it has an inner interpretation as well, it has to be lived.

The Buddha was attacked by demonic forces as he struggled with whether to carry his message to others, or not.

Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Lennon …. add your own favourite names ….

The point of these references?

The point is that any contemporary spiritual journey, to be following in the footsteps of predecessors, is liable to be dangerous, and if it isn’t, is it actually real?
