Why do we allow our governments so much control over us? Why do we allow our planet to be abused? What can we do to change things?
What events, activities, projects, organisations, etc, would you like to see more of where you live?
More community focused events. We need to start bringing people together, as only together can we do anything to change our predicament.
What is the epitome of beauty to you?
A star filled sky on a winter’s night or watching the sea crash against the shore.
If you had one year to live how would you spend your time?
Having as much fun and interesting experiences with the people I love as possible.
Got any good jokes you want to share with us?
Apparently we’re the most intelligent species on this rock.
What is the meaning of life to you?
Life is about the experiences you have. Its about having them. The good, the bad, everything. The more you do and see, the more you learn. Fundamentally that’s what its all about. If there is anything after death, the only thing you can take with you are your experiences.
What do you think the world would be like if there was no religion?
I imagine there would be a lot less war and hate. Women would be treated equally and intolerance would probably not exist as it currently does. Religion is a control mechanism, design by rich people to keep poorer people scared.
What are the most important social issues that you care about?
The right of all humankind to live in freedom, and to be free from war, oppression, poverty and pain.
What are the most important ideas, projects, events or activities that you feel passionate about?
I work in video games. What annoys me is that this amazing medium is now being used to spread propaganda and a pro war bias. All propaganda in media is something we should tackle as a society, but to see it spreading in such an insidious way, whilst people are blind to it really gets me fired up!
If you could control all of the media for one day what would be reported and why?
The truth about everything. From how money and debt is created to the fact that all wars being fought are done so for profit and nothing more. That elite banking dynasties have the real control of this planet and if only the people realised that we out-number them to such a huge extent we could change the world in a heartbeat should we wish to. I’d finish by pointing out that ultimately we’re all one consciousness experiencing itself individually and if we work together we could make this world a heaven and be exploring the stars by Saturday afternoon…just after tea.
What do you love most about your life?
What have been your highlights of 2013 so far?
Helping to start EmanonEarth with some new friends and discovering that there are loads more people with views like me.
If you could be paid to do anything in the world as a job what would it be?
I’d just be an artist. Not the commercial stuff as I do now, but a proper artist with the beret and the smock. I’d love to just stand in fields with my easel and just paint stuff!
What do you think is the difference between spirituality and religion?
Spirituality comes from within. Religion comes from without.
What are your favourite things about where you live and why?
There’s lots of green where I live. I’m close to the countryside and I love to just disappear into it and engage with my world.
When you think about the issues that concern you what would you like to see more people do?
I’d like to see more people just wake up and smell the coffee. So many people are transfixed by the box in the corner of the living room or by the glossy magazines. Wake up people. Stop letting other people dictate to you how you should feel, how you should look, what you should think! There’s so many people who go day-to-day full of misery, and they’re only that way because they’ve been conditioned to think they’re inadequate or ugly or stupid. You’re not, no one is! We’re all expressions of this universe; we’re all the most unique creatures that ever existed! Think about it! The vastness of the universe, the dark empty eons of space and yet here we are on this little ball of rock floating along, and you READING THIS NOW. YOURE YOU. YOURE HERE!! How utterly AMAZING IS THAT?! We should be singing in the streets, but instead we’re constantly told to be this or that, or to wear this or that, or to hate that person or that race. I want people to wake up to their amazingness! See it, breathe it! Be, without being told how to be.
How do you feel about the current government and why?
Well if I were to do that you’d have to put an age appropriate warning on the cover. Lets just say I think they know that their time is coming to an end. I think they can see it coming, like a wall. They seem to be trying very hard to appropriate as much cash as they can and cause as much division as they can before it hits. Too late chaps. Games very nearly over. We see you.
If you could go back in time is their anything you would do differently?
No. Its all been an experience.
Why do you think more and more people are started become critical of capitalism?
People only see the awfulness of it when they become directly affected. Since 2008 lots of people have become affected. This is only going to increase, as things get worse. I don’t think it’s a bad thing though, I really think it’ll be the driving force that helps us save the species. If we don’t change course soon then we’re all done for.
What are the most exciting things that you are looking forward to doing this year and why?
I’m off on a foraging course in a few weeks, I’m quite looking forward to that. The idea of going for a country walk and filling my belly is amazing!
