Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbeare
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was
born in Bombay, but educated in England at the United Services
College, Westward Ho, Bideford. In 1882 he returned to India,
where he worked for Anglo-Indian newspapers. His literary career
began with Departmental Ditties (1886), but subsequently
he became chiefly known as a writer of short stories. A prolific
writer, he achieved fame quickly. Kipling was the poet of the
British Empire and its yeoman, the common soldier, whom he
glorified in many of his works, in particular Plain Tales from
the Hills (1888) and Soldiers Three (1888),
collections of short stories with roughly and affectionately
drawn soldier portraits. His Barrack Room Ballads (1892)
were written for, as much as about, the common soldier. In 1894
appeared his Jungle Book , which became a children's
classic all over the world. Kim (1901), the story of
Kimball O'Hara and his adventures in the Himalayas, is perhaps
his most felicitous work. Other works include The Second
Jungle Book (1895), The Seven Seas (1896), Captains
Courageous (1897), The Day's Work (1898), Stalky
and Co. (1899), Just So Stories (1902), Trafficks
and Discoveries (1904), Puck of Pook's Hill (1906),
A ctions and Reactions (1909), Debits and Credits
(1926), Thy Servant a Dog (1930), and Limits and
Renewals (1932). During the First World War Kipling wrote
some propaganda books. His collected poems appeared in
Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. In 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature, which only Scott, Meredith, and Hardy had been awarded before him.
At the end of 1971 a friend Sheila Johns asked me to teach her yoga as a private student. At the time I felt so ill and depressed I said to Sheila how could I teach anyone feeling as I did. So I suggested we start a explorative session to see if there was a way I or we could find healing. When the group started another friend, Mike Tanner came too. So we started a small experimental group to explore the connection between dreams and spontaneous movement, as it was used in many ancient cultures. This turned into a revelatory experience for me and I began the slow path of real self discovery. See The LifeStream to see what it was about.
