Looking through Brexit tinted spectacles.

“If all of this sounds like [it is] confusing and opaque, that’s because it is. And if it sounds irresponsible and risky, please be reminded that as things stand, Brexit happens in 10 days.

Finally, don’t forget that this is just act one. If the Withdrawal Agreement is eventually approved, or if Britain tumbles out of the EU without an agreement being reached, what comes next promises to be even more intractable and more bitterly fought than anything we’ve seen so far. As one well-placed EU source said of the Brexit talks to date: “This was supposed to be the easy bit.”

A nice sunny day

or in Daily Express Land..

“A STORM hurtling towards the UK is set to unleash up to 20cm snow in parts of northern Britain as heavy rain and fierce winds batter the nation, the Met Office has warned.

A Met Office yellow weather warning is in place for rain, snow, and wind across Britain this weekend as a brutal storm heads for the UK.”

Shotgun

Lyrics by George Ezra.

“Merna merna shotgun,

Merna merna shotgun,

Merna merna shotgun.

Wa-oh.”

And so on, and so forth.

Sing with lazy, disinterested voice for maximum comic effect.

Clear the decks.

Less is more.

Surrender to win.

Keep it simple.

Let go and Let God.

Peace is in the moment.

This too shall pass.

My ego is continually trying to rebuild.

Lovingkindness.

No self.

Deep down in every man, woman, and child, is the fundamental idea of God. It may be obscured by calamity, by pomp, by worship of other things, but in some form or other it is there.

Clean house, trust God, help others.

Be still and know God.

Nature as the dwelling place of God.

The infinite is revealed when the mind is quiet.

Awe, solace and self discovery.

Clear the decks.

Face the Fact and See What Happens

“We have all had the experience of tremendous loneliness, where books, religion, everything is gone and we are tremendously, inwardly, lonely, empty. Most of us can’t face that emptiness, that loneliness, and we run away from it. Dependence is one of the things we run to, depend on, because we can’t stand being alone with ourselves. We must have the radio or books or talking, incessant chatter about this and that, about art and culture. So we come to that point when we know there is this extraordinary sense of self-isolation. We may have a very good job, work furiously, write books, but inwardly there is this tremendous vacuum. We want to fill that and dependence is one of the ways. We use dependence, amusement, church work, religions, drink, women, a dozen things to fill it up, cover it up. If we see that it is absolutely futile to try to cover it up, completely futile—not verbally, not with conviction and therefore agreement and determination—but if we see the total absurdity of it … then we are faced with a fact. It is not a question of how to be free from dependence; that’s not a fact; that’s only a reaction to a fact…. Why don’t I face the fact and see what happens? The problem now arises of the observer and the observed. The observer says, “I am empty; I don’t like it,” and runs away from it. The observer says, “I am different from the emptiness.” But the observer is the emptiness; it is not emptiness seen by an observer. The observer is the observed. There is a tremendous revolution in thinking, in feeling, when that takes place.”
