compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion


- How easy it is to mis-interpret, mis-understand, mis-utilise – the WORD as

a symbol of the communication of an IDEA – simply as a result of the juxtaposition

amongst a set of symbols & the context of the original transmission ?

LOVE is – the Tao of Physics

some would say too much Tao not enough Physics

LOVE is – the Metaphysics of Quality

some would say too much meta not enough quality

LOVE is – the razor edge of NOW


The razor edge of What ?

The razor edge of What IS ?

The razor edge of What is ENLIGHTENMENT ?

LOVE IS that which my family experienced when we had the privilege of living for 13 years in The Old School-House in Tackley – every-time we were in the company of a young girl called RENA – she is the one at centre smiling in the photograph above – and was a neighbour, school colleague and family friend who was one of the first children on earth to have had a heart valve transplant surgery procedure - performed by Mr Magdi Jacoub and his team of medical specialists at Harefield Hospital - following a stroke at 18 months of age.


She NEVER ONCE had any consideration for herself – ONLY a consideration of LOVE for others – truly exemplifying the statementwhat other LOVE can I have for my friend than being prepared to give my life for my friend – and despite knowing and understanding at every stage of her relatively short life that she stood death in the face she never stopped smiling.


"The force of LOVE is the force of total revolution. It is the unreleased force, unknown and unexplored as a dynamic for change. Compassion cannot be cultivated; it derives neither from intellectual conviction nor from emotional reactionIt is simply there when the wholeness of life becomes a fact that is truly lived."

                                                                         Vimala Thakar

has no boundaries or issues of time, it has no ‘beginning’, it has no ‘end’, and love exists, waiting for us to discover its essence, our essence; to choose to be on its path.

IT was most certainly the case that RENA embodied Vimala Thakar’s description of the force of love & compassion and therefore reasonable to conclude that LOVE is NOT the KILLER app.

"We are in a situation where (our species IS) ...

facing a global crisis of spirit in search for meaning"

                                                                                                     Jim Garrison


AS we @zaadz seek balance and harmony in ALL things religious, political & scientific - and LOVE IS the ONLY common denominator potentially capable of achieving THIS  – and we continue to interconnect and experience our support for each-other, we are building the foundation - moment by moment, one hyperlink at a time - of a computer front-ended social networking phenomenon – based on LOVE & COMPASSION – which will eventually permeate the global brain.

Neither New Age spirituality nor the old religious orthodoxies have within them the power to heal our souls and our planet.

So I want to put forth a different vision of how to manifest LOVE and healing and transformation in this world - a new spiritual vision that
emerges from the depths of Hebrew mysticism. The understanding that
Spirit is not static but rather that it develops - it evolves stage by stage - and each stage adopts the great truths of the prior stage while discarding its dross - as it reaches for the next and higher level of Spirit's unfolding,

Rabbi Marc Gafni

Despite his own personal manifestation of LOVE - what the Rabbi has said above still holds true - and as I have said elsewhere - Don't KILL the Messenger

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? LOVE is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it… . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more.

I can think of no better philosophical description of Rena -

than that described by Carl Gustav Jung

"Joy at the smallest things comes to you only when you have accepted death. But if you look out

greedily for all that you could still live, then nothing is great enough for your pleasure, and the

smallest things that continue to surround you are no longer a joy. Therefore I behold death,

since it teaches me how to live. If you accept death, it is altogether like a frosty night and an

anxious misgiving, but a frosty night in a vineyard full of sweet grapesYou will soon take

pleasure in your wealth. Death ripens. One needs death to be able to harvest the fruit.

Without death, life would be meaningless, since the long-lasting rises again and denies its own

meaning. To be, and to enjoy your being, you need death, and limitation enables you to fulfill

your being."

I AM here to serve

I AM here to inspire

I AM here to LOVE

on the App Store, and we continue to invest in providing them with the best ecosystem so they

can create the most innovative apps in the world.”
