Articles of Faith by Philip J Bradbury

Life is a sexually-transmitted, fatal disease. Yes, it's a serious matter, this life thing, and it's not to be taken flippantly. As my son, Cain, wrote in his maths book when he was seven years old: "Be serious or else you'll die."

Let's be honest about it -- we're all going to die, cease to be, expire, kark it, decease, curl up our toes, naff off, go walkies on cloud nine, be drinking at the Harp and Cloud, have one last fart, shuffle from this mortal coil, meet our maker or drop our toga. However we express it, we're all going to die and we can choose any age and a variety of ways to do it. I'm being really blunt here as it seems that many people are really not getting the message that no matter what we do with this life thing, we're going to die anyway. And when we die, the world will keep spinning, people will continue to pick their noses, fart, make love, make war, hold hands, bicker, smile, buy lotto tickets and whinge at the government. Sorry, but LIFE WILL GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

So, in the meantime, let's do this life thing with a bit of style, panache and humour. After all, what's the alternative?

Life and spirituality are supposed to be about being light and joyful but Philip saw that most spiritual magazines were earnest and lacking humour. Deciding to make a change, he nagged the editor of a local spiritual magazine - a phone call, visit or an email every month for a year - to include more articles with humour and controversy. She eventually caved in to his persistence and his first article prompted more letters to the editor than all previous articles and so he was asked to continue.

Philip has now written for magazines in many countries and he cares not that you think like him - his abiding desire is that you think ... his articles may prompt you to do that.

About the Author

Welcome to my books, to my many genres ... I write in every genre but there is one theme – to help you find peace, your place in the world & to rediscover the you that you lost. I share your hope that my words will help you unlock the prison you’re in, the current drama you can’t find your way out of. I share your hope and willingness to find your passion, your wings and take on the life you’re born to experience. It's my hope for me as well. I spent twenty years in the wrong occupation. 1 year of accounting & I knew we didn’t fit each other. Why did I stay? Year later, I found I’d stayed bored & desperate to please my father and my wife. I couldn't please them. I can only please me. Once I’d realised I was in a rut – a grave with the ends kicked out – I was stuck. I didn’t know what else to do. Also, the income provided for my family. I had responsibilities & had to go on. I couldn’t let them down. But I let me down. I followed my father's example – sticking in a job that sucked me dry – & became more angry & depressed. The divorce was traumatic, sad and releasing but, work-wise, I quietly slipped sideways into teaching and then, because of my 20 wasted years, facilitated personal development courses and men’s groups. I quickly realised I was a lousy accountant and slowly realised I was a great teacher. I loved it and, 20 years later, still do. If you’re misaligned you can't give (or receive) your best till you get wise about the choices you’re making in your actions, words & thoughts. I hope my words can help bring you back to wisdom, home & to the peace you know is there. The dream I’ve realised for myself is the dream I have for you. I write for both of us.
