Living In Scotland. Living With Pain. Just Living. Thoughts? How Do We Define?

Life picture

By @ShaunyNews 

Do you know where you come from? What you represent?

Do you know where you come from? What you represent?

Sheep or loner? Often we do things because it’s “What other people do” or “What society expects from us” We tug along with the rest of humanity and often we do it blindly. Try stepping away, in your mind, from that truth, or lie, and ask yourself how you feel afterwards. I did. Try it, seriously. Is Scotland full of sheep who listen to the media and idiots who think they know it all, or are we a people who keep away from the herd and see clearly what we need to? Curious if ANYONE ever reads this, but more curious to get an answer from EVERYONE who reads it. Sadly by nature nobody will type a thing first. If one other person wrote like I am, many would follow. Trust me. But you won’t…What you scared from? I Just would like to know! I see family and friends on the same path as everyone else, I stepped away from that path and amazing things happened to me. Doors opened I had no idea were even there. 

So why do we stay with the flock Scotland? 

Again, I know I waste my time. Scottish people I guess are as sceptical of social thinking of them than any other populous of any other nation in our World. I used to think “Oh what will people think of me” Now I don’t even ask. I just do. I freed myself from ‘Something’ No main stream God was involved, no religion was involved I read no books for guidance. I hate to talk about my Disability. Sadly many of you, yes you, will define me by my actions and words. I don’t care, so why do you? 😀

See we are all on a journey in life, the mass percentage have no idea they are on one, they wake up, have a shower, go to Work, come home, make tea, eat tea, sit down, watch TV, go to bed, have sex, wake up, have a shower, go to work…….. You get my point. I live in utter agony BUT I AM NOT ALONE. Many who read this are sore or ill or dying. I see a World around me of sheep. I see it more in real life than on-line. Many who really don’t fully understand the Internet will not understand what I am saying here. Bonds I have made 20 years ago, 15 years ago, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, last month/week, today and/or tomorrow are still there on-line. Sure we lose people but that is life, that happens no matter where we take our minds. Lately I have started to write, nearly 2 years now, I guess I am the Author of my own being these days. I am almost narrating my own life as I learn to live. Make sense?

I am writing where I am going

I am writing where I am going

I guess I am a free soul, I am not trapped by anything. I was on HEAVY medication till 4 days ago. In the last 4 days I have had less medication in these 4 days than I did in 12 hours of any given day I was on them fully. I came off a few weeks back to the heavy levels, I only really shared it a few days ago. I feel awake now. I read a lot of what I did when I was pumped with POISON the Dr gave me and some made sense, some never. I took a choice to take no drugs and live no matter. I don’t want a groundhog day existence, I want an existence where every living breathing moment I learn. I could not sit for one second and think “I know it all” because I don’t and neither DO YOU. You don’t. you think you do, you don’t 

Many will read this and think “Is this aimed at me” Let me explain something to YOU. If you read this and thought “Is this aimed at me” then the answer is “This is aimed at you” BUT I never aimed at anyone, I aimed nowhere and at nobody. So if you thought I meant you, then look in the mirror, be honest and ask why you thought I meant “This was about you”

BE YOU

Many deny themselves a true life because they are scared of the hurt that always comes when you REALLY LIVE. I used to turn my back on love and friendship because I was once scared of losing. I didn’t like myself for that. So I changed, I became Shaun, free from medication, pain, loss, worrying, gossips, hate and all that hits us in life. Take hatred. I know many who feel hate, they take a person’s words and feel hated, I ask you to not take that hatred on board. Don’t become what others want you to be. Be you!! Love and take the loss and hurt when it comes. The reason I did this is I realised I am different first of all. I came to the conclusion I am ‘DIFFERENT’ I have changed, but you know, I LOVE WHO I AM NOW! I am happy, blessed in the sense I have feeling(s). I feel, I love, I breath at my own pace. I observe our World now, I write about it, it has become my ‘Art Form’ See when you do ANYTHING that others can’t for WHATEVER reason, inability, hatred, confusion whatever! You become fear, hate, worry, gossip and rumour driven. 

I am free from all that now. I ask simply. Why can’t you be free? What is stopping you? I had one person tell me “I Work for a living unlike you” BEHIND MY BACK, lol. Yeah a person said this about me. I heard about it and smiled then I became sad. That person thinks I sit and pretend to be nothing and take what the World gives me. I feel sorry for you if you feel that way. I want Scotland to be a free country from the British Union. It is my ‘Art’ right now. It is what I research and write about. I write for my place in Scotland for a group of like minded people http://www.scot2.scot/ have a look for your area there. I write for and about West Edinburgh here https://www.facebook.com/pages/scot2scot-Edinburgh-West/361924177307818  So for anyone who thinks ‘Shaun lives for Shaun’ please, think again. I also run this page here for others who suffer, many less, many worse than I suffer, but I have to try and help everyone https://www.facebook.com/groups/699321140156812/ That is my page for ANYONE with any Chronic illness, this is an illness or disease that you will have for life or that will control your life. So please, never say “Shaun only talks about Shaun” to me.

Where did you learn how to be a person? From and by whom taught you?

Open your feelings, talk, be you. I know family and friends who I can’t speak to on the phone for over 2 minutes, they hide from feelings. I let them be. Like me, like you, they will find who they are. If it means they never show or allow feeling in then that is sad, not “That person is sad” It is sad in the term, unfair. But I can tell you unfair, I got a life taken from me. Did I sit and feel sorry for myself? No! I ran a football club for nearly 10 years, worked with kids for free all these 15 years I was in football. I am not showing off, I wouldn’t and couldn’t do that. All I am saying is, people like to assume, presume and guess with gossip also. So knowing the facts about life will help YOU become you and not the society made version you are told to be

Try it, please. Allow opinion, accept opinion, even if you don’t understand or believe in the opinion. Don’t get all worried about things you can’t change either. Don’t live in guilt, I used to be guilt but in reality is there anything we can do about the past? No, there is nothing. So what I have learnt and just recently as I wean of this Dr’s poison is “To be Shaun” But always look to others feelings best I can. As I come off my poison fully the pain will cripple me, literally cripple me. But I will fight it, not to point score or prove points, but for a Woman I love always. For 2 guys I have watched growing in to men and more so for two wee lassies (Little Girls out side Scotland) 2 wee lassies who are starting to be aware of what and who is around them. I MUST with the help of my partner make sure these 2 wee special princess of mine get to understand the World the same as their big brothers. I have to do that, I will never judge my kids nor show hate. Parents don’t do that, often with one of my sons they see anger, where in-fact it’s ‘Dad trying to teach’ I was that age once so I know what to look out for, lol

There is no book on 'Parenting' or being a good 'Partner' - We learn as we grow, or we lose!

There is no book on ‘Parenting’ or being a good ‘Partner’ – We learn as we grow, or we lose!

Life is precious, I don’t waste moments, I keep them. My Mum recently remarried, that was a moment, I keep it where it should be kept. Same as all moments. I smile and live and be free from the shackles of what life expects and more to what I ACCEPT. Live guys and gal’s, we have no other choice. You may be happy at 20 years old, but please know choices you make aged 20 will define where you are at age 40, I am told my one of my parents “What you do at 40 will define you when you are my age” I am lucky to have that wisdom around me. See that is what it is at the end of the day, we surround ourselves with people we can be ourselves around. We can relax with people we know care about us. Often it is not blood related, but that is fine, as long as you surround yourself with people who will mould you moving forward in life. I tried my best with my sons with my Partner and we nailed it, 2 amazing lads. Now we have the PRIVILEGETO DO IT ALL AGAIN WITH THE GIRLS. I CAN’T WAIT!!! 🙂

All I said above applied to you, anywhere in our World and whoever you are wherever you are and all in-between 

Learn to smile, and mean it 😀

By @ShaunyNews Via http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/entertainment/celebrity/twitter-explodes-after-actor-shia-4970648 My words, Music video’s and a movie that won awards for far worse! Also I have been keeping tracks on the UK/USA Sex Scandal involving TV Personalities, Politicians and Royalty on my Blogs https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/?s=Sex+Abuse So I expose the bad stuff, the perverts and beasts, this video is not that!

This is the internet at it’s worst. 20 years ago NOTHING would have been said about this, but the PC being the PC and the people on it having to moan and complain every 2 minutes we see this video of 2 actors for a music video and everyone jumps on the ‘Hate’ bandwagon. Remember this movie here? This was ok pre-Internet world

Lolita (1997) Trailer
Via Lula Belle on You Tube

Lolita, commonly shortened to loli, is a cute child (or child-like) character in anime or manga. There are loli in virtually all series that get published as that particular character archetype generally becomes the most popular. The term “Lolita” originated from author Vladimir Nabokov’s famous novel Lolita (NOT from a manga, for God’s sake), which was of an older man who had a relationship with a child nicknamed Lolita.

21585554_main_zoom.jpegAs you can see the movie won a ton of awards, this was 1999, 16 years on due to the Internet bandwagon of hatred these things are no longer acceptable. For me it’s a music video, it is art, the young girl is an actor playing a part with Shia LaBeouf, nothing more, nothing less. What you see above with ‘Lolita’ is a movie where a 40 year old man falls deeply in love with a 14 year old girl. At this period in our species existence, it was allowed. But thanks to porn and the internet Shia LaBeouf will be getting called all sorts of names. The World has gotten too PC too quickly and people jump on bandwagons. Can I see where people are coming from? Of course, but in reality it is acting. I added ‘Lolita’ to show how much our world has changed over the years. When ‘Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax’ music video was not allowed, we look at some music videos now and it is almost porn. In-fact in many cases the video to the music is porn.

THE paedophile debate is raging once more on Twitter after a video showing Shia LaBeouf scrambling around with a dishevelled 12-year-old for a music video. The troubled 28-year-old wrestles and fight in a cage with Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler featuring in the new promo for the singer Sia’s track Elastic Heart. Sia had already predicted the paedophile criticism for the video, and true to form, Twitter exploded in conservative LaBouf bashing. “I anticipated some ‘pedophelia!!!’ cries for this video,” said the Chandelier singer. “All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring ‘Sia’ self states.

The dancer also appeared in Sia’s Chandelier video. In the video for Elastic Heart, shelooks a little worse for wear, wearing a fringed blonde wig and skin-coloured leotard as she goes stir crazy within the cage of her mind

Sia admits, she’s a bit taken aback by the level of outcry: “I apologize to those who feel triggered by Elastic Heart, my intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.”

The stars of the video can be seen climbing up the cage, wrestling, play-fighting and jumping on each other in ‘artistic scenes’ with Shia topless and also wearing flesh-coloured clothing. At one point, he is seen gently touching her hair as the pair lie on the ground before he places one hand on her shoulder and she quickly jumps up and darts off. Twitter users took to the social media site to slam the video, with one writing: “Sia’s “Elastic Heart” video is disgusting. Desperation of Maddie’s mom for her daughters fame and Sia’s leftover brain cells from drugs.”

Hollywood actor Shia, who appeared in the sexually explicit film Nymphomaniac ,classes himself as a meta-modernism and is known for being controversial. He also alleged he was raped by a woman during his ‘#IAMSORRY’ art exhibition last year. Elastic Heart has already clocked up more than three million hits on YouTube after appearing on Vevo. Another outraged viewer posted on Twitter: “So this sia video is disgusting and inappropriate for a 12 year old.”

Towards the end of the video, during a minute of silence, Shia is seen grasping for Maddie through the bars and she tries to pull him through and is visibly upset.

Does Mumsey know?

Well this story is picking up steam very quickly and is about to rock the World in many ways. The UK Main Stream Media are all over this story today. They picked it up late last week and today have went a step further, a few have not went with this story implicating the Queen of England, but if proven, this is a game changer for the UK and the USA where Bill Cosby is the first and certainly not the last famous person that will be named and shamed. For readers outside the UK a dozen and more TV Celebrities have been spoken to by police, taken to court and many jailed and rightfully so. Here is all I have blogged about this so far, it started with the TV people and I said it would lead to 10 Downing Street (Where the UK Prime Minster lives) and also to Buckingham palace (Queen’s Mansion in London) I am told, sorry I have learnt through research more girls and boys have came forward to the police.

Did The Queen Meet with Prince Andrews Alleged Victim Virginia Roberts?

The teenager at the centre of a Royal sex abuse scandal was introduced to the Queen in London, her father has claimed. Virginia Roberts, the alleged underage “sex slave” of Prince Andrew’s billionaire friend Jeffrey Epstein, was “so excited” to meet the Queen, her Father told the Sun newspaper in the UK. Sky Roberts, 58, said: “Virginia told me a few years back that she met Prince Andrew when she went to London. “She also said while they were there she met the Queen. “She had been flown to London by Jeffrey [Epstein]. He would fly her all over the world and she would give him massages on his private jet.” In its third statement on the matter, Buckingham Palace denied the claim: “We have no record of such a meeting.”

He is looking worried. Royals shouldn't bite their teeth!

Daily_Mirror_5_1_2015Prince Andrew, whom Buckingham Palace this weekend denied had “any form of sexual contact” with Virginia Roberts, has returned to the UK from a skiing holiday in Switzerland to manage the crisis enveloping the Palace. American billionaire Epstein, a convicted sex offender whose friendship with Prince Andrew has long been a source of controversy, has been accused in a US civil lawsuit of running a sex trafficking ring for rich and powerful men — including the Prince, according to court papers filed on behalf of “Jane Doe 3”, who has been named as Virginia Roberts.

The court documents in the US legal action relating to Epstein, in which the Duke of York has been named but not as a party to the action, allege that the then 17-year old Roberts was forced by Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew on three occasions — in London, New York and as part of an orgy on Epstein’s private Caribbean island. Buckingham Palace issued a statement on Friday that said “any suggestion of impropriety with under-age minors” by the Duke was “categorically untrue”. In the court documents, Roberts states that she was invited to Epstein’s Florida mansion as a 15-year-old before becoming his “sex slave” from 1999 to 2002.  She claims to have been passed around “politically connected and financially powerful people” to help Epstein ingratiate himself for “business, personal, political and financial gain as well as to obtain potential blackmail information”

Mr Epstein a close friend of Prince Andrew spent only 13 months in a Florida prison for having sex with a 14 year old girl, anyone else would have got longer, this is what Power, Money and Influence buys you in the ‘Elite’.

Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz – who is also named in the court papers – said the claims against him were part of a pattern of “made-up stories” by the woman and her lawyers against prominent people. Prof Dershowitz, who represented Epstein in the 2008 case, said that he would not rest until he had shown that the claims regarding his conduct were false and he advised the Duke to do everything in his power to clear his name. “My only feeling is, if she’s lied about me, which I know to an absolute certainty she has, she should not be believed about anyone else,” he told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme. “We know she’s lied about other public figures including a former prime minister and others who she claims to have participated in sexual activities with, so I think it must be presumed all her allegations against Prince Andrew were false as well.”

But in a statement released through her lawyers to The Guardian, Roberts hit back, saying: “These types of aggressive attacks on me are exactly the reason why sexual abuse victims typically remain silent and the reason why I did for a long time. That trend should change. “I’m not going to be bullied back into silence.”

A Message To The World, My World

A Message To The World, My World

562440_10150895213902350_526362349_9771703_625620720_nBy @ShaunyGibson Used to be @ ShaunyNews This is a news page but below I have tagged in ‘AceNews Personal Stories’ I am a writer now, sports reporter, published columnist and freelance Journalist in the making and moulding.  So here goes. “Shaun, you have changed” is what I hear a lot these days. I am not special in the sense I am above anyone, nor am I below anyone, I am changing, events in my life have brought me here, free will, my choice, I lost people but in reality, they lost, how can I lose someone who didn’t like me? 😀 See the irony? I have reached a place many won’t or can’t. The power of the love I feel today and yesterday and as day turns to night then day again, perpetual motion makes it stronger. I feel alone in the sense I am being taken on a journey of love and enlightenment. I have yielded temptation and turned to the opposite, However, for tempted meaning enticed or attracted, the opposite effect could be repulsion. For the adjective tempted, there is the opposite un-tempted, or even discouraged, so I am going with ‘Self Control’ I am in a place now many don’t get but I don’t expect anyone to get it. I do however hope the 5 special girls in my life try and understand. 3 are adults 2 are my Daughters both below 5 years old, they will love me as Daddy no matter

tumblr_lssepe8qLz1qddkhgo1_400

When you change and there can be many reasons for change, I won’t bore you with my reasons for change, let’s just say 2 things changed me, one is pain the other is medication. I am at the mercy of feelings I have no control over. Let’s just say I know who and why people tell me ‘I have changed’ I get it because I am that change, I became that change. My Editor Ian, my boss, he has helped me more than he knows, he is a very wise man and he has my back as I have his

When I was younger I so wanted to be a singer, I tried to learn the guitar so many times now my guitar has moved house and settled with a new family. Yeah we can still have a little fun, I wanted a stage, I needed to tell my story and I will. I am not a guy who will be mean to a woman yet I am made to feel this way, not by a person, by myself, but am I? I feel both, what is right? what is wrong? The answer is irrelevant because come judgement day none of this matters, but we don’t stop living knowing redemption day is coming, no, we live, breath, smile, talk, love and try and care, life is too short to be like this with each other, this is what I mean

wheres-the-love1

I live in a World now I feel so disconnected to I find it hard to define this World. We look and see evil all around us, yet individual acts of love and kindness exist should we choose them. Yeah, 1387537342we have choice, sadly many make choice out of not fear, but through the thoughts of others. I could say “Keeping up with the Joneses” but I would be wrong, yet close, people afraid to live and free themselves because a friend or loved one will judge, is that right? Are we to live worried and look to others for reactions to our actions? I don’t, I stopped being that guy. I became what I was indented to be. So I ask what stops you? Whoever you are, wherever you are. I asked for a stage once not long ago and I had 1,000,000 people, kind people, read what I write, that blew me away. In an instant I changed but the change is still happening.

When we lose we get something back in return. I will try layman’s terms more so for myself, your house gets broken into, you lose everything you have, but wait, your insurance gives you it all back, so in the end when we lose we gain something. I lost with the brutality of Satan himself but refused to bow at his knees, I took another path that has led me here, taken me to this spot in life, I will change more so YOU have the decision to make, not me. I talk to anyone I know or who knows me. I will go right ahead and change into what I am changing to, I don’t mean to hurt you, I could never do this, you said I changed, you were right.

1095045_10100432982666443_425973773_nPlease don’t deny me the change you don’t understand. I am love now. I left behind criminal life, I left behind idiots wanting to be the ‘The big guy’ This is not my place in life no more. I spoke with a well known guy a while back, he changed also. He said “Same tree, different leaves” and he was right

This, none of this is about me, it’s about ‘US’ and always will be. You are on your path, I am on mine, maybe one day our paths will meet instead of being parallel to each others.

I have my stage now, I have the audience I craved to tell my story. I am halfway through writing a book but have to change it often because the change in me is so fast and drastic, but it will be written in a way where I hurt nobody.

I live a life where as long as I know what I have done is correct, then I am happy. I have 2 little girls to help grow up and teach the same way I did with my two sons, they are amazing kids so my partner and I did good, now we must take these same values and bring two little girls up in a World where hatred, gossip, idle talk and more are the order of the day. My Job now as ‘Daddy’ are to make two wee girls understand choice is always there for them, then like their big brothers choice will be theirs to make, until that moment, we will help these two bundles of love grow. To you special 5 girls in my life, I love you for what you are not who you are, I love you, just you, I don’t pick and choose what to like or not like about you, I could but if I do I become someone else, see we have choices, love, smile, happy, yet often we, me included get lost in the middle of love and hate, many are stuck there for life, I am walking towards love and I don’t have a care in the world who judges me for choosing to be me 🙂 That is human instinct, I decided to leave that be, so can you. Just live and love and you will see a different world, a world I can see now, I am 41 now, not 21, I see through a man’s eyes but never looking back to talk to a confused kid who moulded me into the man I am today, why should I? He helped me get to this exact stage of my life and I love it, do you? x

ok, stick with me here reader. I have just slept 31 hours after being awake for 29, this is the Causality of Fibromyalgia, there is NOTHING I can do to change it. When asleep I go past R.M Sleep And into a deeper state of sleep that science has told me is called ‘Paralysed sleep’ it means my dreams are so real my body could act out what I am dreaming, it’s way past sleep walking, so much deeper. When you see someone sleeping and their eyes are moving this is  as close to what I am trying to explain is. When we sleep and our eyes are moving madly we are in DEEP RM Sleep. I go to a place deeper than even my Dr or Pain team can understand. I have had it most of my life and when I am asleep I am not in agony, so I like to sleep, but not too much I want to see my family.

This is very hard to type but each time I sleep for these periods of time, 30+ hours I feel like I have been somewhere for a day, I feel like the dream was so real then I ask is what I am doing right now, typing on my PC with music hammering through my head on my Sennheiser headset any more real or unreal? Awake can be as real as asleep to me. Something that started as a kid. It confused me but I always spoke to one person about this, to this day I still speak to that person, my dad. He understands, if he isn’t understanding he will listen anyway. I say “When I am asleep it’s like I leave earth on a voyage into space” He says “I understand”

So what is this? What is knocking me out for 35 hours sometimes. I sleep so deep I can have both my Daughters jumping on me, my sons shaking me or Dawn playing loud music inches from my ear and I don’t bat an eyelid, I am too deep in sleep to be part of the living here. When I do awake for 20/30 minutes I think I am dreaming because the dream was so real

I just awoke to a dreams of memories from my childhood, they were as vivid to me then as this is now. I remembered things my brain in an awake state could not. So I am asking, are our brains like a computer in a bigger sense than Science will have us believe. Where do these old memories awaked Shaun can see? Are they stored in some Recycle bin of info that never gets deleted?

These four types of brain waves, and others discussed below, are important criteria that have been used to define four distinct stages of non-REM sleep. Obviously, falling into a deeper and deeper sleep as the night progresses is actually a gradual, continuous process, but these four stages still provide a convenient means of describing the relative depth of non-REM sleep.

Stage 1 non-REM sleep begins when you first lie down and close your eyes. After a few sudden, sharp muscle contractions in the legs, the muscles relax. Then, as you continue falling asleep, the rapid beta waves of wakefulness are replaced by the slower alpha waves of someone who is relaxed with their eyes closed. Soon, the even slower theta waves begin to emerge.

Though your reactions to stimuli from the outside world diminish, Stage 1 is still the phase of sleep from which it is easiest to wake someone up. In experiments where people are awakened from Stage 1 sleep and asked about their state of consciousness, they usually report that they had just fallen asleep or had been in the process of doing so. They also often report having had stray thoughts and short dreams. Each period of Stage 1 sleep generally lasts 3 to 12 minutes,

Stage 2 non-REM sleep is a stage of light sleep in which the frequency of the EEG trace decreases further while its amplitude increases. The theta waves characteristic of Stage 2 sleep are interrupted by occasional series of high-frequency waves known as sleep spindles. These bursts of activity have a frequency of 8 to 14 Hz and an amplitude of 50 to 150 µV. Sleep spindles generally last 1 to 2 seconds. They are generated by interactions between thalamic and cortical neurons.

During Stage 2 sleep, the EEG trace may also show a fast, high-amplitude wave form called a K-complex. The K-complex seems to be associated with brief awakenings, often in response to external stimuli.

People in Stage 2 sleep are unlikely to react to a light or a noise, unless it is extremely bright or loud. It is still possible to awaken them, even if they then report that they were really sleeping during the 10 to 20 minutes that this stage lasts during the earliest of the night’s sleep cycles. But because people go through Stage 2 sleep several times during the cycles in a night, this is the stage in which adults spend the greatest proportion of their sleep–nearly 50% of the total time that they sleep each night.

Stage 3 non-REM sleep marks the passage from moderately to truly deep sleep. Delta waves appear and soon account for nearly half of the waves in the EEG trace. Sleep spindles and K-complexes still occur, but less often than in Stage 2. The greater activity observed in the electro-oculogram (EOG) trace during stages 3 and 4 reflects the greater amplitude of EEG activity in the prefrontal areas, rather than movements of the eyes.Stage 3 lasts about 10 minutes during the first sleep cycle of the night but accounts for only about 7% of a total night’s sleep. During Stage 3, the muscles still have some tonus, and sleepers show very little response to external stimuli unless they are very strong or have a special personal meaning (for example, when someone calls your name, or when a baby cries within earshot of its mother).
Stage 4 non-REM sleep is the deepest, the one in which we sleep the most soundly. The EEG trace is dominated by delta waves, and overall neuronal activity is at its lowest. The brain’s temperature is also at its lowest, and breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure are all reduced under the influence of theparasympathetic nervous system.In adults, Stage 4 lasts about 35 to 40 minutes during the first sleep cycle of the night; it accounts for 15 to 20% of total sleep time in young adults. The muscles still have their tonus, and some movements of the arms, legs, and trunk are possible. This is the stage of sleep that accomplishes most of the body’s repair work and from which it is most difficult to wake someone up. This is also the stage of sleep in which children may have episodes of somnambulism (sleepwalking) and night terrors.

The Human brain, like the wires inside a computer

I know most of this people will read and think “Who is this nut job” But writing isn’t just about news or views it’s about life also. I see a World scared to talk, scared to open up, terrified that the World will see the truth and or know the real them. I say this is a great pity. For me I ask is the awakened World, this one, any less or real than the dream world many of us can reach?

I have put myself forward for RM Sleep dream programmes and hope to do them soon. It means staying in Hospital for a few days but I truly want to understand the difference between the real and unreal. I guess my whole life has been a quest for knowledge. Now disabled and at the mercy of Medication it would be easy to say “Shaun you are on Medication” Well my Medication wears off 10 hours into my sleep, so the next 20+ hours of sleep are real and pure and for me true and real. I was born 3 months premature in 1973, I had several accidents with electricity. I just dreamt them! I must have been 3 years old and I stuck a knife into the wall socket, knife broken, Shaun ok. I stuck a knife into a toaster, Shaun 1-0 Toaster. I was fine. I was pushed down 10/15 marble stairs by Bruce the Great Dane dog we had, I was fine. My Mum was running with me in the buggy, she hit the curb and I went flying head first into concrete, I am positive my Mum told me this story and she had tied me in. So many times I should have been dead or injured yet I was fine. So is this why I am in pain today? I need to know. I also have an unreal thirst for Religion the Bible and God, I believe in God but the rest I can’t. 20 years ago had I said that out loud it would have got a laugh, today I don’t care, and for me that is the trick of living, STOP CARING WHAT OTHERS THINK! The past is the past and we do go there, it’s human nature. What I am going through I have a few friends who go through similar or have went through it. I can testify to one thing, I have my mind, it is mind, I love my family and don’t care what people think 🙂 It’s a great place to be. It is like being free from society and it rules, try it

I can’t explain it this any better

Taboo Series – Suicide

Standard

suicide

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

As part of my ‘Taboo’ series I am going to talk about things in life people don’t want to talk about. Suicide is something that has hit many of us, be it a family member or a friend. I had a VERY close family try it a few years back, the person was ok. They came to my house a few days later, we hugged and cried. I jokingly said “Stay away from medicine cabinet” and we laughed. Maybe this is just the Scottish way, I don’t know, I have never left this Island.

I asked  the person ‘Why’ The reply was not what I expected. They smiled at me and said “It felt right, I felt ok, I felt comforted by something” And that was hard to take. I expected a disturbed warped mind out of control for life. But no, the person never tried it again, for a time we all worried they would but over time we relaxed about it. When I say this person was close, it’s a person I have known from birth who I look to as Super Human, a person you just wouldn’t think would do this. I have lived through several suicides in my 41 years from family and friends and people I knew through people. And the question we have is ‘Why’ I hope the comment the person above gave me gives others peace of mind if they have lost someone to suicide. It seems to always be the people we NEVER would have thought would do this, that do it. The strongest people, the strongest willed people. Ever noticed this?

So how do we spot it? How do we acknowledge a person is suicidal? For me it is near impossible, people in my past and present who have committed suicide or tried were happy, they seemed fine, people always say this. But then we have people in Hospital to stop them taking their own life. People who just don’t see this World as a viable place to be any more. All I know is the hurt it leaves behind lasts a life time, but we get through it, we learn to understand a person’s state of mind. And we can say “They are at peace now” Many in religion will say “They go to hell” Well I don’t believe this at all, there is no proof hell exists, but there is proof love exists.

Many say ‘It’s the cowards way out’ I don’t know if I agree with that saying. Thinking about it must take the strongest will a human being can summoned up to do this deed. They must be so strong to go through with it. I often wonder when people do it is there regret. Maybe it was a cry for help gone wrong, they didn’t want to die, they wanted to tell the World something, their World

I have never tried to commit suicide but I was close twice and been there more times. This was when everything I had was taken from me due to disability, things just kept going, every day, week, year, even now I have lost a person so close to me, I have known since birth. I have lost that person due to MY DISABILITY, MY ISSUES, MY WAYS. I don’t sit and cry about it, see it takes two people to see there is a problem and two people to understand it needs fixed. Drugs an Alcohol sometimes play a part, this is something we all must understand also. Don’t PRESUME someone you love is ok, ASK!

Suicide is a huge Taboo and I guess it’s best it stays that way. But we all must look closer, we must pay attention more. Teachers in high Schools must help also, they must look. We must look at depressed family and friends and always ask “You ok?” We must also be ready to listen to people. If we stop and ask and that person is allowed to tell a story we may stop that person committing suicide. We all have a part to play in the most taboo subject there is. We must show love, we must care, we must try. But if it happens we can’t live in hurt, the person who left us made the decision, don’t regret for life, we all have reasons to keep living and moving forward. If we allow life to do so it will kick us to the floor and keep us there, so we fight, we stay strong, we at least try and most important WE TALK! Talk to people you KNOW that will listen to you, this is a must

Suicidal thoughts have left me now, I accepted my new reality, it is so sad many can’t. So please, if you look at someone now, tomorrow, whenever and you think “Could they?” Please talk to that person.

Trust me, you can help so please try.

“Keeping The Memory Of Vicky Bruce Alive Award”

http://tersiaburger.com/

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

Shaun here, I don’t do awards any more. I stumbled across this article I did JUST as I was closing my own personal blog. I thought I would re-send as I just spotted a few comments on ShaunyNews I don’t use any more. So with the approval of my Editor I hope this is ok. It just feels right. If you accept awards, please accept these two. I made both. One was to thank people for giving me awards the other for Tersia. As we near Christmas I guess I am thinking about people more than usual. This is a blog I did on November 3rd. I now write here https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com as ShaunyNews is closed as a working blog.

IN MEMORY OF VICKY BRUCE

The purpose of any Hospice is death with dignity. Our mission is to provide love and support to our dying patients and their loved ones.

The purpose of any Hospice is death with dignity. Our mission is to provide love and support to our dying patients and their loved ones.

When I joined WordPress 18 Months/2 Years ago, being new to the whole working of WordPress I used to read more than I wrote. I stumbled across this article by a Mother who lost the unthinkable, her beautiful Daughter. The link below the “Vic has left home for the last time/ is the link when her darling child passed. I remember sitting at my laptop on my lazyboy chair all cuddled into Dawn my better half, Tersia will remember me saying all this. Dawn was curious as to what I was writing and right behind me and helped me understand WordPress. We clicked a few links, then http://tersiaburger.com/2013/01/25/vic-has-left-home-for-the-last-time/ appeared and Dawn and I started to read. At first we were drinking tea, smoking cigarettes, usual nighty stuff, then as we red more the cups and ashtrays went down and we hugged harder. At the end Dawn and I were in bits, we cried hard for a good 10 minutes, I told Tersia and we kinda became friends over time we drifted apart, but friendship takes two, and I have been a bad friend to many on WordPress, anyway. We have four kids, two Sons aged 22 and 20, two Daughters 4 and 5. We nearly lost my 22 year old son about 3 years ago now; he had been suffering for a few years in late teens with seizures, Dawn and I couldn’t sleep after he had a seizure, Dawn would sometimes sleep on the floor next to our son, I would stay awake listening. Back to Tersia. I ask you please WordPress to PLEASE ACCEPT THE ABOVE “Keeping The Memory Of Vicky Bruce Alive Memorial” But please Read, Tersia’s link above, It was built as a place of love in South Africa where people were not alone in the darkest of the dark. It is called ‘Stepping Stone’“A place where the terminally ill will be cared for with love, respect and kindness …” I PRAY YOU GIVE TERSIA’S STORAY A READ. She is such an inspiration to me, she will be to you also. 🙂

A picture of Vicky cemented at the doorway of "Stepping Stone" Vicky welcomes everyone in. How amazing? <3

Tersia was, is, in pain, but from that pain, that moment none of us want to live, she built something that will keep Vicky and Tersia alive for ever. Tersia was down but she was not out. What that amazing, inspirational woman did broke my heart and healed it again, then it broke again for Tersia. I was there late but at the time I like to think I was there for Tersia, all I can do is hope I helped even once. What was built was a place to help other people and this will stand the test of time due to Vicky and Tersia, I know it will. http://albertonrecord.co.za/13943/hospice-opens-in-alberton/

WordPress Family Award

Created by me on June 24th 2013

Created by me on June 24th 2013

I had been on WordPress say? A year at this point. I used to accept Awards, they excited me. I won “Blog of 2013” The offical website confirmed I was first to get 6 stars. I had 200+ Awards, now all gone. I still thank every person for every Award but, how we say? Awards for writing are often given out ‘Just Because’ These 2 Awards or Memorials mean something. The ‘IN MEMORY OF VICKY BRUCE’ to this day and all the days will have a special place in my soul and my heart. As said, Dawn, my Partner and I read it together and we cried hugging each other. It was a ‘Moment’ Moments come at us all, often the moment can be good, or it can be bad or just a moment we enjoy. All weekend I was in bed, I have not been this sore for, well ever. My Amazing friend Anne from New York has been an amazing friend sitting up till silly ‘O Clock speaking to me, allowing me to talk and vent and it does help. So Anne, you an an Aunt from another Granny (Kinda like ‘Brother from another Mother’) 😀  This is Anne’s blog http://talesalongtheway.com/ PLEASE PLEASE GO VISIT ANNE! She is an amazing woman with a caring loving heart!

I personally wish I didn’t allow medication to dictate me falling out with people, I don’t do hate, I do love and caring. Sadly Fibro & Medication speaks for sufferers sometimes – Hell!

I created this Award with the help of my oldest son, the image is actually Dawn, Chloe (Dawn’s left) and Courtney at the far right. I am holding a little boy, that little boy has a special place in my heart. He is ‘Almost’ family, he nearly died as a baby and we got friendly with the kids parents due to meeting twice in a Chronic Pain clinic. We hit it off, they are the ones who took the image. So this image, again is a ‘Moment’ Life is just a collection of moments we try and grab and hold or get through best we can. I made it from the Heart. Everyone was giving me Awards at the time and I thought “I want to leave a mark on WordPress before I leave” and that is it. When I eventually find my new calling this blog will close and my love and caring nature will go elsewhere. Or I may write here all my life, we can’t know or say for sure. All I know is I don’t ‘REALLY’ want to do this for the rest of my life. I had a Dr out on Sunday mid-day. In Scotland Dr’s come to your house at out of hours, nights and weekends if you can’t go to a hospital or it’s a waste of time to go to the Hospital. They have Dr’s car or a Dr’s motorbike packed with everything a Dr would need.

I called, sorry Dawn called at around 11:30am because I couldn’t move any of my body. I was on my left side so all I could do was send a Facebook message tagging in Dawn and my Sons in the hope one of them were on the internnet on a Laptop/Tablet or Phone, an hour or so passed before anyone came through, this time I was in tears. Dawn right away called NHS24 – http://www.nhs24.com/ This is an AMAZING service for the sick and disabled in Scotland, on a Sunday I had to wait around 40 minutes for the Dr on a Motor Bike to arrive. What the Dr didn’t want to do was give me medication until she was 100% sure nothing else was wrong. So I got full blood work up, she had a small machine, takes 10 minutes, blood pressure taken, heart checked, basically a good check over. Once she seen it was the Fibro she injected 50ml of Morphine into the top of my spine, right at the bottom of my neck at the back, it was AGONY the needle going in, she had to get it into my central nervous system. Then I was sleepy for hours. So this “Word Press Family Award” is for all the people who have came and stayed or came and left due to WHATEVER reason. In all the time I have been here I have got friendly with hundreds of people and lost friendship with 7 people for good, or until they or I say “Hey” I am open to talking to anyone. So this Award  and the one above I offer to all the people below. Many will have both the Award and the Memorial. If you have both I ask you please just give it to 10 people.

Rules:
1. Pick 10 people to give both award to. Remember and add the Awards to the 10 people you choose when tagging them into your Award/Memorial to others.
2. Give them The “WordPress Famly Award” and the “Memorial” for Vicky and Tersia.If you have trouble, please add me to one of the Facebook groups I run below, I will happily help
3. Give both Awards to these 10 people. By accepting this 1 Award and 1 Memorial you agree to give to 10 other people. I am giving this to over 100 people.
4. All I ask is you copy Tersia’s blog address and add it when you pass this on. I have a TON of people I want to give this too.
So without anymore talking. Thank you for accepting (In Advance) if you don’t accept either can you at l least tell me please? All I am asking. For anyone new to Awards, you have to host the image here:
http://tinypic.com/ Go to Dashboard, widgets, add an “Image box” to the right of the page. Then add the URL for the Awards and they will show EXACTLY like the items I have on the right of my blog

Here are the people I award the Award and Memorial for Teria and Vicky x

 

More love

Less hate

Mean it!

Shaun

PLEASE TRY AND FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO ACCEPT THESE, OR LET ME KNOW, IF NOT, GIVE TO A FRIEND. PLEASE?

If God’s Words are a Metaphor, surely ‘Imagine’ is also

Standard

john-lennon-imagine-poster-ph0261

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

Imagine by John Lennon is a song that will stand the test of time, no argument, it is a masterpiece. One thing that I struggle with is when people say “Why would we want no Heaven and no religion too” I don’t think this was what John was actually meaning, he sang for world peace and like Bob Marley, JFK and his Brother, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and many more who came with the same message, they were killed, or shot, every time someone with a message of Hope and Peace comes along they get killed. Jesus, the good book tells us came to Earth, he was killed, if Jesus came again, I truly believe we would kill him again. Satan runs this blue globe, we just have people who believe in God and too many Religions

There are some lyrics in his song people are offende at. NOW, When I ask a religious person who live by their chosen book about say, Noah’s Ark, we know the story is not entirely true, but there may be truth somewhere in the story, two of every Animal on a boat today would be impossible. I get told “Shaun it’s a metaphor” People dislike that line “Imagine there’s no heaven” but look right over many other lines in the song “Imagine all the people living life in peace” There are other lyrics in the song that just ask for what many want, but sadly many deny themselves and everyone else through religion. I mean two Kangaroo’s, two Elephant’s, think where the location is, we all know the ‘Noah’s Arc’ Story is impossible, even today it’s impossible, so it’s a ‘Metaphor’ Same as “Imagine there’s no Heaven”

806-in-the-begining-man-made-god-2475 religion_must_die_for_humanity_to_live_by_baybee_snayx-d5sovmr

So when people say to me “I don’t like Imagine, why would we want no heaven” I don’t get offended I get confused, not to the stage I want to cry 😀 But I see God as the way, religion was man made, so is flawed. John Lennon believed in God then stopped, he is quoted many times saying religion poisoned his soul, there is a song below, he wanted love and peace, his message was simple, his song’s a metaphor. But when he sang “Imagine there’s no Heaven or religion” REALLY, think, imagine there was not, nor religion, would the World not be a better place? His song was a metaphor, we can’t have our cake and eat it, I ask if the fear of Death makes people add religion to their lives. John also said “We measure God through our Pain” 

All I know is, for me and what I see, people turn to God in times of trouble, I do also, but I also thank God when things are going good, how many don’t do this. My mother told me “Never talk Religion or Politics” Well sadly I am very opinionated and in this blog I cover both subjects. I dislike the fact we can’t talk religion on the presumption it WILL cause an argument, if that is so, then am I right? I am asking here, I mean to offend nobody, my big ‘ol brain just got turning on this one

Religion is not the problem I said it a few blogs ago, people are. I was playing this song earlier and I remember I put it on my Song of the day once and got abuse for it, yeah abuse from religious god loving people

John isn’t saying “Imagine there is no God” IT IS A METAPHOR, he is singing about a World of peace. The exact same metaphor as most if not all of the bible, stories with a truth behind them. We can’t know the bible is true, we can only have faith in its words. If anyone can show me every word is true, bring it on. But I don’t need words to love MY God, same God you love, and to pray every day

Just Imagine a life, a world with no religion, just people loving God, now would that not be good? Also Lawyers and CEO’s, but that is another blog.  I truly believe people who dislike Imagine need to educate themselves on the meaning of the song. I ask MANY questions from many people about God and the Bible and am told “It’s a Metaphor” Also the peace sign, it’s NOT Jesus upside down on the cross, it means Nuclear disarmament People must educate themselves away from a book, I can prove this but many will believe as they do anyway, like the woman I spoke to who didn’t believe in dinosaurs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_symbols

Many times people have unfollowed me for saying these things, I think these people bring my blog to be true. To dislike someone for asking a question, well they were never a friend. If you have faith and believe every Word of your book, I respect that, but open your mind, just for a second and think away from that book. There is a saying here in Scotland “Never trust anyone with one Book” The joke I believe is or was aimed at Islam, again I have no problems with Islam, just the fundamentalists, but we have Christian fundamentalists in the Westboro Baptist Church.

frz7So I ask, if people who hate all Muslims due to fundamentalists are for real, then should everyone hate all Christians because of Westboro Baptist Church. I am asking a question and I would appreciate ADULTS debate. I may even learn something. I also can’t get my mind around people who want to talk about Gay Marriage and Abortion when the World is on the brink of war! STOP FIGHTING OVER WHO MADE THE WORLD AND US AND COME TOGETHER ON WHO IS KILLING IT AND US!! 

JFK was our last hope, our last chance. nobody will come again, he warned us and as you all know, he died 6 days after this speech

I did a blog in my old blog Prayingforoneday and someone, a woman I called a friend said “You can’t ask that, it’s stupid” then unfollowed me. This is a woman of God, but sadly her religion made her hate. I ask, do you think  religion makes people hate? There are over 5,000 religions on Earth, why is this? So many branches coming off the same tree of life and all throwing stones at each other

God I love and pray to every day, religion causes so many issues, but it’s the people in religion who hate over 1 song for example.

It’s easy if you try, to just love and not push people away from Church’s, as many do

This was no rant, this was me writing in the hope of debate and as I say, I may learn something new

Should any religious person get angry at me, you are proving my point 

I know I am right, but so do you, and there is our problem

More love, less hate

Shaun

Defining life in a confusing World

Standard

Little Shaun, me, Isle of Skye, I was maybe 10 years old, I don't know

Little Shaun, me, Isle of Skye, I was maybe 10 years old, I don’t know

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ShaunyNews

A question I always ask myself is ‘Why’ This could apply to any given situation through my history, my life or Earth’s history. As many know I love to research but I also love to research how far my own feelings define me as a 41 year old lad from Scotland. See my life was never easy but I felt it was. It is very hard to explain. Where there should have been hurt, pain and more, there was not. I sometimes challenged myself to have feelings and all along I did, I just denied myself ‘Feelings’
I told my story once and I will share it here. The reason for this article being about me and not news is because I really do hope I can get more friends, understand people better and understand our World better. The link below I did (Thanks Mel x) on Deliberate Donkay. A family member replied in the comments, kinds odd I thought at the time, the feel of the reply, but it made it more real a person in my history replying.
This is my story: http://deliberatedonkey.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/murder-and-more-through-the-eyes-of-a-child/
I grew up in a bad place, a bad area of town I now know to be bad, at the time I thought was heaven, at the time being a kid, I knew no better, it was my existence. Not until you walk away from something do we see it for what it is, not what we hoped or thought. I am called a ‘Writer’ these days but don’t see myself as such. People in my life will say ‘Oh Shaun you are a writer now’ In an instant I think ‘No I am not’ But I guess I am in some form. Had someone told me I was doing this at this moment in time in my life 20 years ago I would have done a bad deed. This was my life for a long time. I had a dysfunctional family, we were loved but hurt was always there, I guess young Shaun to the left in that boat refused to see or feel the hurt.

This is ‘Ace News Services’ and I know many will be thinking “This isn’t news” Well let me explain this. Why I write this today. I want to help Ace News become global, this is my Editors design and I follow his lead, it’s why I closed ‘Shauny News’ with almost 1,000,000 (1 Million) hits in 5 months. See I never cared for ‘Well done’ or ‘Congratulations’ I guess I hate flattery. I have asked many times why this is and I always come back to the answer ‘Other people helped’ and this is true. If you are reading and you write also then isn’t what you write inspired by others? It is never about numbers of for me, it’s about quality. Quality over quantity. But for people to understand why I write as I do, I must share why I came to be today.
I am disabled now, yes I know, ‘Boo Hoo’ So I have time to sit and think and I am not my best company. What I mean is I get bored being alone, I am not good company for myself. Over time I found a source of company that many call ‘God’ and that is my source of not being alone. Many will go to Church or Read the bible or both, me? not yet I say. I have a relationship with God. I told my Mum the other day in a text, I don’t know if she believes me but I can only be me. The past can keep a person trapped in the past without them knowing or understanding. I let the past go, today I laugh, Smile and love life. Only when I am around certain people do I see the past again. I am trying to change this and I will. I just need time. Often a song can change us, define us, make us see something different, bring love to our door. This is my Song with my Partner. This song saved my life. My Partner showed me ‘Real Love’ a real life, a different life, a ‘Perfect Day’

Today I am no longer the tortured soul I once was after all the bad things I did. But I believe in Karma. I am in agony always, this is my Karma hurting me for the bad I did. I ask, what is your Karma? I am asking out loud not to one person. I said to a loved one, a person I would die for “You don’t know me” And I was right to say it, I said it in the wrong context. So I guess I should have said “We don’t know each other no more” But time heals all things I am sure of this. Only when we understand there are problems can we mend them. Sure I open my soul to the World a lot but I would rather be known for telling the truth, being Shaun and being honest. Why make yourself out to be something you ain’t? My 20 year old son left the family home 2 weeks ago now and I was deeply upset. A family member, saying what he felt needed said and meaning it in the right way said “Grow a pair” He may be right. But for me to change now would be an outcry on myself.

See, we are all alive, sadly some choose to become dead, dead to feelings, dead to the World and dead to themselves. I have never figured this out, but I will. I guess we all carry ourselves in a different way. Anyone with Fibro will know Fibro speaks for us sometimes. When stress happens, pain happens. For me to get people I truly love deeply to just understand that line, no more, no less, is hard. I need loved ones to know I smile, I am blessed, and I am happy. The past hauntes me, I can’t change the past so I don’t let it define me. It can haunt away, it won’t beat me. I can’t allow it. So here I am, love me, hate me, like me, struggle to understand me, whatever. Here I am!

This is Shaun, this is my life, this is why I write.

More love, less hate
Shaun

Music, Love, Light, Stepping out of the Dark, not letting hurt define us……

Standard

10441059_10152437574688302_1574105967610397369_nOften I will post a song in an article and later post it on it’s own. I did post this earlier in an article to the people in Washington state School shooting. It is the first time I had heard this song. And I must say it moved me. When we strip a song back to JUST lyrics it becomes more powerful. This song ‘Again’ like many others touched me in a place I can’t describe. It sends a message of something, I think it’s love. I am MORE than man enough to say ‘I cried’ when I watched this a few times. Too often in our World people stop at emotions in every day life because ‘It is not the way’ Well World, to hell with you (I mean people rules) I am a man, I fear no man, I would kill should the circumstances be right. I sometimes wonder if I am the only man on Earth with these deep rooted feelings and emotion, then I realise I am not. I don’t do ‘Tough Guy’ stupidity, I don’t do on-line gangster stuff. I live and feel and love and care and share. Am I wrong to feel this way? I used to doubt, but these day I just say, as I did above ‘To hell with the World’ and be Shaun. Should I refuse my feelings I become fake, I become something and someone else right? I mean if we deny our true feelings and hide them away what are we doing? I grew up rough and tough but life got good, I am a blessed man as I type this. Living in pain is my daily routine but I don’t let it define me. thumbThere is one person in the World I am more, gentle around, and that is my Mum. I ask often to myself ‘Why is this’? The answer I get back in my mind is ‘Respect’ I was brought up with a Father who allowed bad things to happen. I was brought up by a Mother who had my well being in her heart. As I get older the love and caring and sharing pour out of me and onto these screens you read. In real life they do also, but to a VERY limited amount of people. My Dad, My Brother and of course Dawn my Partner. The 3 people who listen to my love and my ever changing self. I say that because every day I change, I learn, I become someone new because I allow my mind to be free and open to love and light. Sometimes I truly wish someone in power, good power, somewhere on Earth would say “Shaun, here is a soap box, go for it” And speak to the WHOLE WORLD in a language that got JKF, John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Gandhi and many more killed and Bob Marley shot. I believe there are many people with this same love, same spirit, same way, same everything. Some of us get a stage, the rest of us try to reach people in other ways. The more I grow as a person, the more the days pass and day turns to night the more I learn and I really do want to spread a message of light and love. When we think ‘What will others think’ We become society, we become part of a notion that dictates who we are, who we become. I am neither above nor below any person, I am equal, I am ‘Shaun’ Take me or leave me, love me or hate me. I lose no sleep over the latter

The World Needs It. My Father says often. “I cry for Humanity” And this guy was a proper criminal in his day, maybe still is? Who knows

Enjoy the message and lyrics of this song.

More love, less hate, Shaun
