    LOVE REIGNED [Dedicated to Lasse & Vera]

    I had settled in the City of Angels,
    But a lucifer whisked me away
    To a Second City, so windy, no pity.
    Soon he left me one fall day.
    . . .That was a time past passed through.
    . . .Such a dark and a hard time on my way to you.

    All alone and on edge in Evanston,
    Edge of winter and of the Lake;
    As the nights grew longer, my hurt grew stronger.
    My heartbeat kept me awake.
    . . .That was a time past passed through.
    . . .Such a dark and a hard time on my way to you.

    Came a day in May at the waterside:
    The tears spilling down my face
    Turned from pain to joy on that rocky shore
    Within a flow of a glorious grace.
    . . .That was a time past passed through.
    . . .Such a right and a light time on my way to you.

    I felt love washing all around me
    Deep connection to every thing.
    To each grain of sand, to the family of Man
    And every atom in between.
    . . .That was a time past passed through.
    . . .Such a right and a light time, I’ m coming to you.

    I floated home to my carriage house
    With a great grin for all I greet
    That’s returned in kind, and now forgiven behind
    Me is that devil in his defeat.
    . . .That was a time past passed through.
    . . .Such a right and a light time, I’m on my way to you.
    [On my way to you/ On my way to you / On my way to you
    I’m on my way to you / I’m coming to you / Coming to you]

      Jasun, thank you for printing these lyrics and using my music throughout both parts of this interview with Holly. So much fodder for thought in your podcasts.

    A Jolie = Womb Raider?

    Do you think Transhumanism is a nefarious attempt by Archons/higher intelligence or whatever to entrap the human spirit in the low level vibration of the 3D matrix ?

    Great to have you podcasting again…….I wonder if the films/books of Alexander Jodowarsky would be a good subject to explore in this series?

    Thanks for these,take care.

      I plead the 5th.

      Actually the subject of book-in-progress, part two of Prisoner of Infinity.

      Jodorowsky, not my cup of ayahausca. Maybe as part of the illumineering agenda. Hmm. Another AJ….

    I’ll concede it’s perhaps a case of not wanting to venture that far into cynicism, but the Angelina-as-part-of-a-cultural-conspiracy and UK sex workers as a victory for feminism are not sifting well through my thoughts on such matters. Being a “role model” for just one other human being is responsibility enough, but what is expected of some of these celebrities must be an enormous weight on them. That is, presuming they are fully empathetic people to start with.

    I censor myself on what I put on my blog because of that worry of the wrong “advice” at the wrong moment to the most vulnerable (like my total distrust of the US medical profession). My posts here, relevant to your environmental, birth control and philanthropy discussions, are about as specifically opinionated as I get: http://bit.ly/1FNZMAn

    Yes, indeed, thanks so much for sharing these podcasts with us, Jasun.
