Have you ever had one of those Aha moments?
Well this has been one of those days……………….
I have many teachers and have had many in the past, some good some bad but if we are wise we will sort out the wheat from the chaff. Prabhu Darma Yasa has been a blessing for me and I owe my lovely sunshine for introducing him to me. Buddha has been a great inspiration and has kept me moving towards my Nirvana, Even going back 60 years I remember Miss Stevenson my teacher at Mersey Park infant school. I like to think I’m a teacher YES I am and I hope things like my blog will help teach YOU.
SO to the crux of it. I arrived in Gozo 2016 as damaged goods, My ex in Texas had taken everything from me including my will to live. One of the first places I went to was the Lotus Tal Qalb in Gharb. I thought I was safe there..how wrong you can be.
Recently I was banned (after years of giving my time money and energy to this place). It purports to be a Health & Well-being Centre) BEWARE it will make you sick. It has many secrets and we all know “secrets make you sick”. There are BAD people here beware of wolves in sheeps clothing’. Now I understand why locals and the Catholic church steer clear. I even brought my Guru who was here from Bali to talk, Prabhu gave his time and love even though he had battled a storm to get there and yet they banned me?? Why..AHA I now know why! And the truth is quite disturbing.

SO THE THING IS WHEN WE’RE YOUNG WE HAVE TO WORK TO SURVIVE AND PROVIDE FOR OTHERS. BUT
When we get older things change we change as I said in an earlier post “Change of Life” today has brought many diverse opportunities from clothing to cooking and the fact is I don’t have to do any of them, but as my hobby is my work I will enjoy working with these companies. They have exciting new products (well certainly when it comes to cooking).
So stay tuned CB is shortly going to tell you about something that is revolutionary in cooking. I’ve sent message to a few people already I just can’t wait to get started.
Life is strange like that, recently I went to Malta with no money (left it at home) got to the Funky Monkey and the girl there said “It’s OK we know you, this is on the house” ” WOW just WOW.. this wouldn’t happen even in Liverpool my home town. Malta and Gozo is like that 1 big family. SO why do i talk to myself? Well I do listen to others and if what they say makes sense then I will consider it. I’ve had some good and very bad advice from others so listen to your gut instinct, its usually right. Goodnight sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite.

After agreeing to a civilized divorce my now ex wife took everything and then married husband No 5 (good luck Danny Cochran) may god protect.This is my ex (who isn’t “god fearing”) OK we all know she was abused as a child (very sad) but having spoken to professionals they say that’s no excuse for what she did.
THIS POST IS HOPED TO AVOID LEGAL ACTION (WHICH I WILL WIN) AT MINIMAL COST TO ME BUT ENORMOUS COST TO HER.
She persuaded me to sign a “post marital agreement” 2 weeks later she constructs a showdown and insists I leave what is legally now her home. I was thrown into confusion and ended up living in Main St Dallas (near the grassy knowl).
Talking of which Melody Gillespie as she now calls herself was surrounded by criminals. A guy who attacked me Mike Trapp was living with her before the ink was even dry on the divorce papers. Having recently been released for prison after 25 years for armed bank robbery (extended ‘ços he escaped) he was also found carrying POT which was for her according to her (although I’m not sure whatever she says is true.
I can tell all but that would get her jailed along with some of her chums. SO WAKE UP MELODY. Do the right thing, legally you ain’t gotta leg to stand on.
THIS CAN BE THE END OR PART 1 OF THE ONGOING SAGA…
Well what a couple of days. It all started on Thursday 4th May 2017. I decided to take Lidia’s advice (my Nemesis) and stay in Malta before getting my flight to the UK and get a taxi to the airport. Let’s face it I’m going to be away for around a month so to park in the airport would cost around €600. The last time I flew from Malta I was away 10 days and it cost more for the car park than the flight!!
So the journey started with me arranging for Maria to take care of Peace while I’m away. She was happy to agree and has already been well rewarded. I get to the ferry terminal and get a message from Charlotte my German friend “John when can you take the rest of the barbecue away?” I’d part dismantled the very big and heavy barbecue in her house and moved the lighter part to the roof garden that I’m making on the roof of my house. The base needs at least 2 men to move. Sorry Charlotte on my way to the UK. Her reply 😦 (Now I feel guilty). But I find the hotel very easily with my phone’s satellite navigation system. Checking in and parking my car outside was OK so I decide to go and have an early dinner a delicious pizza just 20-30 paces from the hotel. I go for a swim and then try to get some sleep. No chance! So perhaps I should do some work on the phone, I go downstairs to find an outlet as the charger won’t work in my room. Sitting outside the Chinese massage parlor in the hotel foyer I decide to have a 30 minute aromatherapy session. The Chinese lady says get ready and I’ll come back in. I hear her on the phone shouting at her husband about dinner haha. I joke about it when she comes in. I go back to my room I must get some sleep I nap but I wake around 1-30am and decide to go on my small balcony for a coffee, just as I step into the fresh air Prabhu sends a reply to my previous message, he will arrange for me to be picked up at the airport when I get to Bali. I close the door but it locks behind me. Oh holy crap… I’m stuck on the small balcony in my pajamas (but I have my phone), I surf the net for the hotel number and call the reception. Help please I’ve locked myself on the balcony! Haha the lady says I’ll come and let you in, she enters my room I can see her through the glass door and opens up. Thank you so much, are you the lady that made the reservation for me, we start talking, I explain I live in Gozo and am going via the UK to Bali to my Guru’s Ashram. Who’s your Guru, Prabhu DarmaYasa, Oh Lidia she say’s?? Do you know Lidia?, yes she says, I explain that Lidia used to be my partner (BUSINESS partner) that is. We talk for quite some time, I give her one of Prabhu’s books, clearly there was a divine guidance to do so.
I decide there’s no way I’m going to get any sleep so start looking at Facebook, I see a post from Velvet my granddaughter in-law in California, I comment she comments back for once (Velvet and I have slightly different political views to put it mildly), then another from Chuthima in Thailand, Velvet’s mother in law, (my daughter in law) this is getting quite complicated I’ll explain later haha. Messages then start coming in from all over the world. It’s amazing how ‘messenger’ helps you keep in touch. I’m writing this on the airplane time for a break the battery is almost drained.
Well it’s now the 10th May and I’m sat in Sarah (my daughter) house in Hull UK. I’m waiting to go to the bank to collect some currency for Bali. I leave tomorrow and will be in Bali about a day later. So I’m traveling from Hull to London Heathrow by train, then Heathrow to Denpasar (Bali) via Singapore and then to the Ashram. Then I expect I will have very little time to go ‘online’ so I will quite probably be ‘absent’ for some time (yes I know Oh good you are saying). This part of my journey to become a Buddha is hopefully going to answer many of the questions I have and maybe heal my body and spirit, who knows I may even find the answer to Nirvana, who knows? Whatever happens I’m sure the story will continue to fascinate maybe not you but certainly me.
Bye for now Love and Peace.
