Quite a busy day, but nothing too hectic. Quiet now, but it would be wouldn’t it, being about 3. 30 in the morning!
Do you know, I really like these early hours. No traffic sounds; no telephone calls, no other sounds really; nothing to distract you. I guess what I especially like about is the feeling that most of humanity is asleep (in this hemisphere, of course) and I’m not subjected to the usual flow of noisy human thoughts. Think about this, if you can. To be awake when everybody (or most everybody) nearby in asleep or unconscious, brings its own kind of peace! Human thought is such a funny thing really – at least when its normally active. It causes so many problems for so many people: well, you must know all the negative ‘thought forms’ that go on. But now, most of them nearby are silent; and I’m sitting outside most of them.
Well, it’s a very special day tomorrow. I know it’s the dreaded weekly Sunday, although it’s a very special date. Midsummer, no less, and a date much revered in the ancient calendar. It’s a time when daylight has reached its peak and the Ancients knew of its importance. So do I in fact! Perhaps more than many! But many don’t. They just rely on clocks to dictate their movements without the slightest realisation that these are only ‘measuring devices’ to record something that is timeless. A calculated record of something that doesn’t really need calculating!
Yes, its also Sunday tomorrow (sorry, I meant today) and no doubt many will awaken to their usual set of routines. Sunday dinner to cook; take the kids to the park, don’t forget Church, and all the rest of it! And no doubt many will attend Church, to ‘save their souls’ or to pay their weekly homage to God! Nothing wrong with that, when people genuinely mean it. Problem is, a few people don’t!
Now, I mustn’t ‘get onto Sundays’ again as don’t want to invoke K’s wrath!. But as it is June 21st, just thought I might mention it.
Another Talk has been arranged for next (this) week. No notes as usual, I just said I’d do it – and I will. Could be a little difficult though, as the organisers have told me in advance that I might get questions about some of the more ‘intimate’ passages described or mentioned in my autobiography. (Well I had to send them the book beforehand which is what the Talk’s all about). Well, if that proves to be the case, just let them ask! I never print anything that I’m not prepared to say in public.
Not really tired yet, but I’d better make a move towards bed soon. Got to catch up with some writing on the new book tomorrow after a fairly long weekend!
For the moment,
