Agnishatdal Book 15 Ponchishe Boisakh — Thoughts

The Solitary Mother

Roots, where do we come from, how do we achieve a compassionate heart, where do we learn about kindness, to whom do we look, whom do we reach for; who else, The Mother figure in your life. The solitary mother, carries far more than children; the early teacher, the constant presence in the life of her children, and without fail, she does her best, as everyone who is lucky, has a great mother. The light she brings, the unfailing help she gives, the example she shows, in her kindness to strangers,and her corporal acts of mercy. The most under regarded worker in the entire world. Men start wars, not solitary mothers, men start wars, her children, the victims. As the mother hen displays and many birds too, how she keeps her chicks safe, beneath her wings.

The angst, a mothers stress, the news hard to take, is there anywhere safe for me.

Solomon smiled, the light had arrived from Heaven, and the light was immense as the light of God shone down on his people, the wonder in the hearts, the dread in the hearts of deceivers, and those who undermined the well being of Holy Spirit, everywhere.

She wants to have a family, she seeks out a worthy loving man. Her first thought, what is in so many of their heads; the squinted eyes, the odd stares, the dark news, is there no real men out there, she wonders. Do I have to sell myself internally to achieve, do I have to give in to strange behaviors to be accepted. At last, she steps into the church, she heard so much abusive talk of all that was wrong, had been afraid to enter, she didn’t want to offend her friends; weak they said, those who went on their knees in such places. Inside she smells the rich after aroma of incense, and then she notices, the silence, the calm. Unsure of what to do, she takes a seat at the back, afraid to venture too far in, the stories they filled her head with, you don’t want to be seen in there.

Solomon recalled the day, he encountered the young Iman, Faisal, who in full traditional dress entered the sanctuary where he had never been before. From a dream, he was told to enter the church, you will find a man, and you will talk love peace and understanding. Solomon smiled at the photo shoot near the alter; the young believer, through Islamic tradition, had made a leap, few christian’s ever do. It as a scene from the parables made real, the young believer reaching out to his neighbor, outside his own comfort group. A man of mighty faith thought Solomon. If only religious leaders in the troubled Holy Land could do the same, as many were trying to do. The Zealots dear Father, remind them of their responsibilities, they seem to be leading some of your children astray, amen.

Hopeful Heart Hold On…

You dwell too much, there is so much in there, over thinking is as bad as doing nothing at all, and many times it’s time you need, your heart is beating, your heart is yearning, the hunger is there but there is nothing to nourish it with, remember child, woman, man, boy, you are not alone, you only think you are, there is help, and it’s already in your heart, believe it.

Lost in the world, should have a relationship, getting depressed but not depraved, you are still hope filled, it is hard, how others judge others, the cold feeling it leaves you with, do they think the same of me, then the doubts when your alone, worsening your thoughts, you even think the worst, sleeping impossible, jaded tired, you get up next day, the shop you pass, can’t afford that, then the dread, you hope they will change the subject again, and the circle goes round and round, one day it will turn, you hear the name of Jesus, you immediately feel hope, so never give up, the destiny that awaits you, you already have it inside you.

Solomon sighed, the demon who used the fears hate and envy of others,in a nutshell, the harvester of all that is evil, through the use of others, is on the way to the abyss, amen. Trust in God, it’s in the stories of old, those who put their faith in Him who lives forever, will not be let down. Stay hopeful,amen.

Comment piece in Screen International on Smartphone Filmmaking — Simple Pleasures part 4

I recently authored this comment piece for Screen International to mark the inaugural SMART – the London International Smartphone Film Festival – which I set up with director Victoria Mapplebeck. It highlights the fact that smartphone filmmaking is now a mainstream production option and can film some things not filmable in any other way. To […]

Heart Patches Doctor

What, his glasses slide down his nose, did he hear correctly. He looks at the patient record in front of him. He is a big fan of John Grisham and Lady Gaga, but he has never heard of that request before. Well he says after a pause. Her eyes are droopy, baby pout on her lips, she isn’t feeling great, he wants to help, he is a doctor after all. About to write a prescription for an anti anxiety drug, he remembers a tune Leonard Cohen sang, probably wrote too, the cure for love, at that moment he looks her in the eye, cute he sighs under his breath, as if he is trying to come up with a one liner,that will put her at ease. If it was Saturday night, he might have something else on his mind,but ethics still matter,and he doesn’t over prescribe.

Treasure Box

I don’t feel good doc, can’t you do it for me, the new York drawl only makes him heady, he visited the place once, she is cute, he can’t find words, he begins to sweat, she sees his perspiration, she naturally passes him a tissue, what is that for he asks, while sitting back in his chair, her perfume is tickling his nose, and he feels he is losing control. Let me get a glass of water she says. What he thinks to himself. She is at the water cooler before he can stop her. Taking over the office, this isn’t happening. She places the glass of water on the table, there Doc, I think you needed that.

In a nutshell, she leaves the office a little later, a smile on her face, feeling swell as they say. Her heart patches have been found; When you do good for others regularly, that inner pain will disappear. Why you ask, it’s simply this. The inner Spirit has to be fed regularly, amen. The smile, after the deed, feeling good within. As Jesus said, and says, works of Loving Spirit, are the best forms of work available to those seeking entry through the pearly gates, not knowing about it, and doing nothing about it, Jesus tells all, its not knowing me that matters, but doing the will of the Father, that’s what matters. Amen.


The ship is taking in water, it’s a matter of time, the thoughts that go around, all those habits and stuff that you have taken on board, i.e., the mind is the ship, and the cargo is all the rubbish you have accumulated, your ability to be loving is being reduced, you have other things to be anxious about. The trusty heart you have and the treasures you hoped to keep safe in there, is being blocked off, your losing energy, you don’t understand why, and those pills your on, worry more too, how long will you have to keep taking them, in a nutshell, unless you unload that mental cargo of angst and worry, your going into the deep unknown, and the more time you lose, the worse the condition gets. In other words, your drowning spiritually.

In a panic you rush into the place where you keep your good stuff, the ways of coping with life, the stuff you need, the healthy mental habits, that has always been your refuge of safety and trust, cannot be accessed. Too much clutter is in the way, and when you find what you need, your situation has only gotten worse. You want to ring 911, there has to be an emergency service out there, that will help you cope.

He doesn’t like the affect the condition is having on the children, he is pragmatic and cold, not that he is totally heartless, there is still blood in the veins, maybe the covid Jab will improve him, maybe. Addicted to the new social reality,meaning access to all things adult from the touch of a button, he bides his time in front of the TV, while her condition worsens. A thoughtful person, who thinks of himself only, or more correctly, how things affect him personally, he is trying to devise a way of freeing himself from her. He is one of a growing number of narcissistic minded men and women, who are losing empathy, and offending God in the process too, now there, there has to be a solution to this.

The prophet in a dream, is transported into the office of this strange man. He knows,from the address on the envelope he sees’, in the dream, that this individual, is using methods, that would fall foul of anyone decent. It wasn’t an accident the prophet can read the name clearly, and to put it in precise words, God most high understands what is happening. The great awareness, Heaven knows your every deed, your every thought too, there is no sweeping under the carpet, not anymore, the revelations these last ten years, have been of biblical prophecies, meaning, that times written of, many years ago, thousands in fact, is being played out, in this current stretch of time. Those that used to be able to fix things, are having their lives turned upside down. God Most High has heard the call of too many hearts,and action is being demanded, there is no choice. Even the comet that missed the planet earth march last year,came within a hairs breath of pushing the planet off course. Science knows this. Some scientists are laughing out loud, as they have found an unknown source of energy in the solar system, and while some are anxious, others are overjoyed, since the movement of the stars, is one of the great signs of the great return, Jesus again in other words, amen.

Don’t panic, strange events and unstable leaders and confused thinking is the order of day when it comes to the time of the greatest of all returns, The Holy Spirit and more. The prophet put it words to help the people of the day, to rouse them to act, before it was all too late. This is the story of the great awareness, amen.

Refugee International Day…

Neighbors, the lesson of the refugee, fool yourself but you can never fool the Almighty, it’s inside you, same as those refugees tonight, waiting for someone to show mercy to them. If we are sincere, well, if your reputation is all that matters this does not apply to you, caring for others, demands less of the self and more of the we, it’s not important the group your in, many are misled, but your ability to have empathy is something we all need to put work into and fast. The prayers of the oppressed are heard,and with the signs from above, and we all know this, making it a safer journey for the refugee, is important. Jesus lived as a refugee too, and it’s to Him you will have to make your appeal, so if we have a chance to help the oppressed,and they are in every news story today, we can’t claim ignorance anymore, that excuse is done and dusted.

World leaders, living in five course meal and avarice company, listen to the words of old, as Spoken by Jesus Christ. Those in positions of authority, will have to account for themselves, and if Jesus spoke it, well, it’s gospel, amen.

Jesus has very harsh words for those who mislead the people and lead them astray, and while he spoke words such as these when speaking of the pharisee’s, he included those in positions of authority, as the Children of the Father, and their eventual inheritance was being endangered, as was the harvest itself, the return of the Spirit to the Father.

So, the issue has to be addressed, and it’s not for under the carpet anymore. The attempt to hide atrocities does not work either,as revelations have shown, so what are we going to do about this, how can we improve the focus, on our caring ways, that actually achieve and are not more spin stories, that is dead too, as social media has shown. Do we need a move away from nationalism to a more generous mind set. If there are those who want to be extreme when it comes to their borders,remember this, the owner of the vineyard thinks different, amen.

A more thoughtful attitude, might be helpful in so many ways, amen. The pictures in this blog, were the result of a prayer for assistance from the Most High. amen
