Dear beloved friends
Isnt Youtube amazing ? The way we connect with like minded folk all over the world ? I have read every one of your comments and have been touched by them all.
In July I was diagnosed with nodules on my vocal chords. On a physical level, this means that I have to remain virtually silent for the next few weeks, possibly months. On a spiritual level, it is very interesting that I have co-created this reality. Especially as both my hobby (speaking in public, making the vids etc) and my profession (singing) are dependent on my voice !
I feel that I have been forced (by myself and life) to look inside more; to evaluate where I am at. What I do on the streets is a very external process and for me it is so much easier to look outwards than to look within at the cobwebs and addictions that seem so ingrained.
So I am in that process now.
To the police, I have this to say. I have at times lost my compassion for you. I know in my heart, that you guys on the whole mean the best and are 'just doing you job' often unconscious of what you are really doing. In our last encounter (after the Stock exchange) unlike what Charlie wrote at the end of the video 'Humanitys Playground', I felt quite broken. The police (all 7 of them) behaved unlawfully once again. After they had searched us under the anti terrorism laws (what a joke) and I refused to give my details, they spent ages trying to find a way of forcing us to. They found one albeit unlawful - threatening me with arrest for 'anti social behaviour, even though all I personally had done is film 1 minute at the stock exchange. So I say to the police, it is possible that you have broken me. I have a wife and kids like some of you and I feel more frightened giving you my details. But is that what you really want ? Do you want to live in a country where the police crackdown on anything innovative ? Anything creative and out of the box , anything that challenges the status quo ?
