Dealing with Life’s Poker Games

A poem for all the single men who have had their heart broken or have been disrespected. I stand my ground — and claim my rights, to discard all disrespect and petty fights, to raise the bar — of honor and dignity, and not degrade myself through false humility. Yes, there’s a time to shine…

I LOVE YOU (Poem)

2012 Venus transit of the SUN I adore the sand beneath my feet, as winds caress on this sunny Broadbeach, escorting sounds — of Mother Nature divine, and my mind emerges from all things swine.

The boy with the blue crystal (POEM)

The boy with the blue crystal — his face shines, With expectation — like dry lips to wine. A day is dawning — when the sun shall blaze, Within his heart — destroying the haze. Of endless rebirth and the web of mist, That glistens and sticks to a clenched fist, Of resistance and shame…

On Monday, July 25 around 3pm, I nearly died in China. Seriously. I was about 30 seconds from death. The hotel I was booking into in Guangzhou had just fumigated the rooms with some ultra toxic mosquito repellent that caused my lungs to collapse. At first it was just a tickle in the throat, but…

Awareness (POEM)

Awareness By Paul Turner
 (31/1/2011 Balmoral Beach, Australia) Repeating patterns in the yellow sand, Dominant Sun from where I stand, Enlightenment possible – no doubt therein, Removing refuse from the history within. To be aware of actions and behaviors – so swine, To acknowledge your essence – so perfectly divine, To allow those mistakes to…

The desire to connect – at what cost?

We often gloat about how “connected” we all are in this modern “wired world”, but are we really? Look around any busy street, subway or office building and sure enough you’re going to see cell phones and blue tooth devises stuck to people’s ears, thumbs feverishly clicking away at tiny keyboards, or headphones feeding music…

Ch Ch Ch Changes – How to stop rebirth

“This material world is not a fit place for a gentleman,” explained Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami. “This whole material world is like a stool house,” he said. “You don’t loiter around, you just come in, do your business and leave.” This somewhat gross metaphor could be easily misunderstood and seen as a callous and irresponsible view of…
